The Prospective Beet

The article we published last week
lu The Examiuer about tbe probable
establishment of a beet sugar factory
in Lakeview, created a gieat dottl of
local interest, and doubtless will also
be good rending to the thousand who

principal sugar beet section. At La

Amalgamated sugar Beet Compauy.
The plant is valued at $:iH000. This
year it paid $5 per ton to the growers.

used for grazing purpoBse solely,

to excellently adapted. At a banquet
teudered iu bis honor at Odd Fel ow's
Hall on Tuesday evening, which waa
largely attended by interested parties,
Mr. Seartf made a favorable report
upon the Investment, stating his
opiniou that after a most compre
hensive and careful survev from every
point of view, the holding were aa
renresented : that Irrigation was easy
aud feasible; and that in the ordinary
course of time there should be uo
reason why tbe newly opened valley
should not be as productive and
valuable aa any In tbe state.
His statements were reinforoed by
statistical data, samples ot soil, and
a lucid and entertaining disoourse
upon the nature of the oountry and
It natural advantages.

All tbe above ia nothing more than
tbe recognition by our leading citi-
sidering a Sanatori
um at Hot Springs
Tbe Examiner has not said anything
regarding tbe Sanatorium of late, but
it is by no means a forgotteo project.
Tbe Chicago parties ate still consider
ing taking hold of tbe matter, and
there aUo re people in Oakland Cali
fornia, Seattle, Washington, and San
Antonio, Texas, who are very much
interested, and are figuring and plan
ing to sooner oi later begin opera
tions. In this endeavor there ia ample
room for all. as there are three sep
arate and distinct sets of hot springs
situated along tbe foot bills above and
below Lakeview. All of them have
valuable medical properties, and each
set wculd take care of one or more of
tbe largest saoatorlums without de
tracting or inconveniencing tbe
others as U tbe case at the famous
Hot Springs, Arkansas.
Tbe fact tbat our altitude knd our
ozone-fllled and balsam-laden air, and
climate are very favorable to people
who would seek health here will do
doubt be a very big factor toward tbe
early erection of such a resort. These

Warned Against
Foreign insects
Fruit growers of tbe Northwest are
cautioned about Importing young
trees from France by Secretary Will
iamson ,of the State Board of Iloiti-
culture, who say the gypsy moth and
the brown tailed moth have been
found in recent arrivls of young trees
at tbe port of Now York.
"Should these pests obtain a foot
hold west of tbe Rocky Mouutains
there would be no such thing as
eradicating them, aod it would be a
question of time when tbe fruit and
shade trees of the coast would be
ruiued Mr. Williamson says.
These moths have been ravaging tbe
Atlantic states for about four years,
and already tbe sum fo $10,000,000 has
been Hoent b? tbe various states iu
fighting tbem. A professor iu a New
York luelituie naa a iew oi mem
bi ought from Paris for scientific
investigation, and one Of the windows
in his laboratory being opened a moth
escaped. This bingle insect started
in to populate the trees of tbe city
and from there the pests were wafted
into Massachusetts, wbicb alone has
expended $3,000,000 in trying to
eradicate tbem since.
"Tbe gypsy moth forma a cater

the trees aod soon kills them by
stripping the foliage. In the winter
tbe eggs rest in cooooua ou tu

develops iuto a moth, wbicb proceeds
to lay eggs by the thousands.

From the bulletin issued by the
, Trans-Missouri dry

. tbe following is taken:
' Hooiar Pease, near Rocklaud, Idaho,
averaged 30 bushels of wbent, otas,
rye and barlev from 91 acres this year.
Fifteen' additional acres in Oold Coin
wheat averuged 5 bushels. Many of
bi 'neighbors produced 30 to 45
bushels and tbe district averaged 25
busbele. As against tbe Hue yield of
tbe scitjutitlo farmer there are reports
as low as 10 bushel from men who
"farmed" without giving any atten
tion to ftystem. Some day the "Dry
