So far as the beet culture is con

the average all the roots analyzed
Showed fully 20 per cent of sugar,
which means virtually 5 per cent
of the entire substance of the root.
Some went aa high as 23 per cent,
which is considered remarkable.
"For the sake of comparison," said
Mr. Knisley "it may be said that
when in New York a few years ago,
I was told that beets analyzing 16
per cent were considered verv good.
The climate of the country about
Union ia very favorable for beet
culture, an abundance of water and
sunshine, sro to make the sweet
The method of analyzing the
beets is quite simple when once
understood, Mr. Knisley 's mission
at Union was also to instruct the
people there how to carry on the
experiment themselves. A small
hole is bored diagonally into the
beet and the boring pressed and
the juice put to a chemical test.
The result is" kept classified, accord:
ing to the percentage ot saccarine,
and tha beets graded and placed in
bins until Spring, when they are
planted lor seed. Thus the very
best sugar-producing beets can be
cultivated. A. B. Leckenby, the
grass expert, well known in these
parts, is now in charge of the beet
industry at' Union, and will super
vise the analyzing of 40 tons of
beets to be planted next spring..

A dispatch from Washington
regarding Pacific coast, harbor
improvements, has this to say of
conditions at Yaquina bay :
-There is now a' balance avail
able for this project amounting
t $12,734, which will cover the
cost of rock removing at the en
trance of the bay. - The expen
ditures to Tune 30, 1900, $690,
027.68, resulted in. completing
the . two jetties provided ior by
the original projects, as stated
above, and in prepairing to re
move the cluster of rocks as pro
vided tor in the present project.
The expenditure during fiscal
year ending June 30, 1901, re
sulted in increasing the depth of
water over a portion of the clus
ter of rocks -beyond the sea end
of the South iettv from 6 feet to
12 feet at mean lower low tide,'
which c latter is equivalent to
about 17 feet at high tide. It is
estimated that the remainder of
the cluster of . rocks may be re
moved during the present Sum
mer; with the fuuds available.
The" maximum draft : that could
ordinarily be carried during the
fiscal year ending Tune 30, 1901,'
at mean low tide over the shoal-
est part of the bar channel prop'
er was 14 - feet, and over the
