- SUGAR BEET SEED.
The president of the board of trade of
this city has received the following letter
from the Oregon State Board of Commerce
with regard to the sugar beet seed which
has been sent out by that body. The
seed can be had on application to the
Chronicle office :
Portland, April 17, 1891.
Mr. A. S. Macallister, President The
Dalles Board of Trade.
Dear Sir: Ae you are doubtless
aware, through the" press, there is a
movement to have an experiment made
in the raising of sugar beets in this state,
in order to ascertain at what cost they
can be produced, and an analysis made
of the beets grown . to ascertain their
richness in saccharine matter. Believ
ing that the production of the sugar
would be a matter of very great benefit
to the state,-1 have procured seed for ex
perimental purposes of what are reputed
to be the best varieties. I send you
herewith by express a small quantity of
each; that is, "Klein Wanzleben" and
the "Vilmoin's Improved." I also mail
herewith instructions for planting and
cultivating the beets, as furnished me by
E. H. Dyer, of Alvarado, Cal., who is an
authority on this subject. I would re
quest that you distribute this seed to
some of your most reliable farmers, who
will take interest in the matter and will
follow the instructions. Between now
and the time for harvesting the beets, I
will endeavor to have all arrangements
made for the analysis of the beets to as
certain their value in sugar. I would
also ask that you request the parties to
whom you give the seed to keep a care
ful record of the matter, so that they
will be able, at the time of turning in the
beets,- to furnish a statement of the
quantity in weight, per acre, their experi
ments produced and at what cost they
weVe grown.- It is to be hoped that these
experiments will prove that the beets
can be produced in this state at a cost,
and of a quality, that will enable the
sugar manufacturing industry to be es
tablished. Trusting that you will be able to give
this matter' the requisite attention, I
have the honor to be,
Yours very truly,
T. F. Osborn,
Oar General Varney.
The West Shore publishes a picture of
General James A. Varney, who served
so satisfactorily during the past year as
department commander of the G. A. R.
of Oregon and says of him :
The retiring department commander,
James A. Varney, was born in Brooks,
Waldo county, Maine, October 7, 1825.
He went to California around the Horn
in 1849 and returned to Maine in 1853.
In 1861, he went to .the front as chaplain
of the Seventh Maine Inf. ' Vols., and
served through the Peninsular campaign.
Mr. Varney came to Oregon fifteen years
ago, and is now living in The Dalles en
gaged in the nursery and florist business.
Fruit and flowers have "been his ' hobby
for years. He was a charter member of
the State Pomological society j of Maine,
and an executive officer for years, and
made a fruit exhibit for the state at the
Philadelphia cen tenia!, He is-now one
of the Oregon State Board of . Horticul
ture and pest inspector. Mr. Varney
was a charter member of James W.
Nesmith Post No. 32, G. A. R., at The
Dalles, and is a, cousin of the gentleman
whose ' name is thus ' perpetuated. He
served three . successive terms as post
commander, and was elected Jepfcrtrneiit
commander at Eugene a year' ago. His
administration has been the most ener
getic and business like the department
has ever had, and the order has been
fereatly strengthened and enthused. In
his official capacity he attended the
grand encampment at Boston last year.
Mr. varney is a Mason in high standing
both as a Royal Arch and Knight
Templar. He was a prelate of Trinity
commanaery, mo. i, Augusta, Maine, lor
two years, and a charter member of St.
Omar corrimandery, No. J2, Waterville,
Maine, serving continuously- as prelate
for many years until his " removal ' to
Oregon, since which time he has main
tained his membership.
: It is plain to those who know E. F.
Humason,' who has been convicted at
Spokane of the crime .of stealing cattle
and sentenced to the ' penitentiary ' for
two years, that he is a victim of malevo
lence and of a spirit of revenge. Huma
son was a cattle dealer and butcher at
The Dalles for more than twenty years,
and had business relations in. Portland
where he was well known throughout
this long period. He always bore the
reputation of an honest and honorable
mail. "At Spokane he is clearly the vic
tim of circumstances. There has been a
good deal of cattle stealing in that sec
tion. Humason bought and butchered
some stolen cattle, not knowing that
they had been stolen. An angry jury,
determined to put a stop to cattle steal
ing, have taken advantage of an oppor
tunity to use Humason as an example to
terrorize cattle thieves, and thereby have
made . an innocent and honest man a
victim. No one who knows Humason,
as ne is Known at The .Dalies and Fort
land, will believe for a moment that he
has committed a crime. When guiltv
men so seldom get their deserts, it seems
doubly wrong that innocent men should

THE SUGAR BEET.
How They are to be Tilled Full Direc
tions to Those Wlio Plant Them.
' The following circular has been issued
by the Oregon state board of commerce
in regard to the sugar beet seed which is
being distributed throughout the country
under the auspices of that organiza
In the effort to have experiments made
in various sections of the state, for the
purpose of ascertainingdefinitely whether
sugar beets can be produced in Oregon,
of a quality and quantity, and at a cost
to warrant the establishing of beet sugar
manufactories, the following' directions
for planting and cultivation of the beet
has been obtained from those who have
had experience therein.
Select a soil that will not become hard
during the growing season. The sugar
beet, if raised in proper soil, with proper
cultivation, will grow all underground,'
except a very small crown. it tne
ground becomes hard so that the beet
cannot expand underground, it will be
forced above, and be worthless for sugar,
as all that portion of the beet that pro
jects above ground, contains no sugar,
but impurities that prevent the crystali
zation of sugar.
Plow the land not less than 12 inches
deep, the first plowing, as early in the
season as practicable. Plow very shal
low the second time, not over four or five
inches deep. Work the land well, after
this last plowing, pulverize the surface
thoroughly. Then if the rainy season is
about over, let it remain from ten to
twelve days, before sowing, in order to
allow the "moisture to rise to the surface.
If the seed is sown on freshly prepared
ground, it will germinate immediately,
and the weather should be warm and
dry, the moisture will recede from the
surface, the germs will die, and the seed
The ground must be thoroughly pul
verized on top, and the seed planted in
drills fifteen inches apart, not over one-
half inch deep, and thinned out so as to
stand from three to hve inches apart in
the rows. The thinning and first weed
ing should be done as soon as the young
beets can be distinguished from the
weeds,. After this, all that is necessary
is to keep them free from weeds.
A light, sandy loam, or alluvial soil is
best: However, the best land in the
world cultivated as is usually, done in
raising beets for stock would oe worth
less for beet to manufacture into sugar.
And unless the farmer follows instruc
tions in raising beets for this purpose, it
will be no test. Beets grown side by
side on the same land, one lot grown as
directed for sugar .might show by analysis
from 14 per cent, to 20 per cent, sugar,
while the other lots, cultivated as is
generally done for stock, and long dis
tances apart, would grow large, mainly
above ground, and contain ' very little
sachanne and be unfit for sugar. The
farmer will obtain fully as large a crop
it cultivated lor sugar, as tie would lor
stock in the usual way. The beets would
be smaller but there would be ' more of
them. A beet for sugar' might weigh
from one-half to three pounds, and
grown all under the ground except a
small crown. It is therefore essential in
order that the test may be of value for
the end desired that the instructions be
followed, strictly.- ,
. Wlien the beets are grown, in select
ing samples for analysis take only those
that have grown all underground, of
good shape, and do not weigh over two
pounds. An analysis of beets raised in
the,ordinary way will give no test of
Your attention is called to the follow
ing extracts from the report of the com
missioner of agriculture, Washington,
D. C, for the year 1881, on the sugar
beet, and quoted irom the most reliable
European authorities :
"Experiments in close planting, con
tinued for a series of eight years, gave
the following results: 1st; richer; zd,
better quality; 3d, of larger vield in
weight; 4th, less exhausting to the soil.."
Beets at smaller distances will pro
duce more sugar and absorb less of the
saline matters. Now, we know that the
constitueat properties of sugar are fur
nished entirely by the atmosphere, and
that the saline matters are furnished bv
the soil, and by cultivating the sugar
beets at smaller ' distances from each
other (that is, closely planted) they are
less exhausting to the soil. Close cul
ture is more profitable at the same time
to the grower and the manuiacturer.
