Paris, Dec. 7. According to
private advices from Warsaw, tin
massing of Russian troops oji m
frontier is attributed to advices u
ceived by Russia of a concerted
plan by Germany and Austria for
uuited action in the event of war
by either of those powers and Rus
sia. In that contingency it was
proposed that Germany and Aus
tria should suddenly invade Rus
sian Poland and occupy "Warsaw,
by using their theater facilities for
mobilizing. In consequence of
the discovery of this project, Rus
sia resolved to compensate for her
slow power of mobilizing by im
mediate increase of her frontier
force. The movement implied no
aggression, but is purely a defen

Correspondence officially denies
the report that the parties inter

in reference to the increased forca
on the frontier. The paper says

be completely organized and their
Vienna, Dec. 7. Emperor
Francis Joseph will be present at
the military council, which is to be
held at the palace to-morrow, for
the purpose of considering what
steps are necessary ia view of the
collection of Russian troops, on
Berlin, Dec. 7. The National
Gazette discussing the Vienna
FremdenblaWs article relative to
the massing of troops on the Rus
sian frontier, says: "It is evident
that the force of Russian troops
now in Poland is not sufficient to
attack two military powers. The
present massing of troops is too
small lor war and too large lor
peace. We must wait and see
how Russia will reconcile herself
with the pacific assurances of the
Journal de St. Petersburg.
The Moscow Gazette says the
future policy of France will decide
whether Germany will be compelled
to watch one or both frontiers.
The paper declares that Russia
must always have a strong fleet in
the Pacific ocean.

IBeet Sugar at Two Gents a Pound.
We have .some interesting fig
ures from Germany, showing at
what price" sugar is now being
manufactured in sixty-four first
class factories, as reported by the
association of Oderbruch and
Poraerania. To think that it is
possible by existing improved ap
pliances to extract 11. ol per cent,
sugar from the beet, and an addi
tional 0.G5 per cent, from the mo
lasses, or a total of 11.90 pounds
per 100 pounds of beets, is calcu
lated to cause a thrill of satisfac
tion in the breasts of Ameri
cans who contend for the best
welfare of their country. The
cost of thi9 sugar was only
two cents per pound. These,
however, are actual facts, and
could, with very little additional
expense, be repeated in the United
States. Unlike sorghum sugar, of
an unknown future, this beet su
gar is placed on the European
market in quantities sufficient for
the entire American consumption.
AVe have only to follow the exam
ple given us, to become the mas
ters and not the slaves of the
world's sugar trade. "Why these
great opportunities are neglected
remains a mystery to those who
have the country's industries truly
at heart. The Sugar Beet.
A Triple Alliance.
Unappilr tor the wretched Tlctim of their

the Bitters. This crand fortifier Is also a re
