Outlook Remarkable Everywhere
Beets Hare Been Planted.
"Simply marvelous," Is the way
Field Superintendent F. S. Bramwell
characterized the . 1909 stand of su
gar beets In Union county, before
taking his departure this morning

tative yield. His c rops over.' that
county are reported to be ei

"Never Before In the hist
gar; beets in this county," afurmea tne
. superintendent, "has the yield been tsq
prolific as right now, and with any
thing like favorable weather from this
time on, the output of sugar this seas
on will be enormous."

year than in the past years, but
where greater acerage 'prevailed in
years past, greater crops will be the
rule tltlB year. "' ' '

was about to be moved last Bpring be
cause of profit-killing business,' the
promise of an excellent output this
year has a double meaning for it not
only ln.ures determination of the fi

next year, it I8 yet too early to es
timate the crop's total, but it will be
remarkably large, unless, of course
subsequent weather Is detrimental to
proper maturing of the beets. '
