AVIATORS LIKE ESPERANTO.
No Other Language 8poken at French
The connection between aviation and

Henri Farman, wbo runs his school for

WALLOWA HAS BETTER BEET
LAND THAN UNION EXHIBIT
. A. C. Miller, preIdeut or the Wal
lowa County Fair association, Is in
receipt of the following communlua
Uon from F. S. Bramwell, manager
of the Amalgamated Sugar Co., at
La Grar.de, whkh Is of general In
terest to Wallowa county people:
Mr. A. C. Miller Enterprise, Oregon.
Dear Sir: in the matter of our
making an exhibition at the Wallowa
county Fair, we deiire to observe:
We would liike a space from six to
ten feat wide, in whilch we will erect
a sort of pyramid of lumber con
struction; and- exhibit beei'js from
the various fields grown near En
terprise and LosiUne.
When we met the pubMc of your
city last spring, we made certain
statements concerning the tonnage
that we believed could be grown on
lands lu Wallowa coumty. We
found a general prejudice against
the beet culture, as you know, caus
ed by the failure of the beet indus
try In Union county. . We told' the
people in this meeting that the con
ditions were different and we be
lieved good tonnage could' be grown
in Wallowa county.
I am very happy to Inform you and
your associates, and to ackowledifie
that we made a mistake at this
meeting, in that we didn't plftce the
tonnage high enough, because In
nearly every field that we are oper
ating save about three where we
have made a mistake and got on the
wrong kdnd of landwe are going to
exceed our fondest anticipations; and
exceed' the statements we made in
some instances by DO per cent.
I expect to ship some beets from
UnJon county and place side by side
with beets grown in your county'
not with a view of knocking this
county, but with the hope of prov
ing to your people the splendid op
portunities that are before them In
the matter of raising 'beets. I also
expect to battle beet juice and' show
the process of manufacturing sug
ar from the beet to the Mulshed
It Is thought by some that beet
sugar is inferior to that made from
cane, and a general prejudice ob
tains. The facts are, Mr. Miller,
'hat it doesn't matter ait all what
tlie ground work of suigar Is, wheth
er it be cane,- beets, plums, or any
other article from which sweetness
can be obtained, when dit reaches
a degree of about 95 per cent puri
ty It Is sugar and that Is all that can
be sa!d about it. As a matter of
fact the highest per cent of purity
ever obtained li the United States,
wa. had from beets. The highest
per cent of purity from cane that
1 know anything about was 93 pr
c nt, while from beats It has reach
ed a point of 95.6 per cent. Very
I'.ltlb difference, It is true, but It
H In favor of beet sugar.. Again
there Is 20 cents differential In
price hi favor of the beet.
We are very glad to participate
In, the -matter of your Fair, and we
may be pardoned at this time 'when
we say that you will always find us
public-spirited and willing to do our
part, and a little more, looking to
the development of the country
where we are operating. We believe
In good roads; 4n good, efficient, and
yet economical government; and in
everyway looking to the develop
ment and enhancement of values In
the country tound about. In' this,
too, you must oonsller that we are
entirely unselfish, so far as your
territory Is concerned, for the reas
on that we do not own a single acre
We shall be very glad to hear from
you apprising us of the fact that
the space te reserved; and we will
endi a. man from here and fix It up
In "apple pie" order. If you can
offer any suggestions whatever or
Indicate In any way that we 'can
help you outside of the order we
have outlined, you may command me.
