A factory that could be operated at this profit and produce 4000 tons of sugar annually from tons of beets, would coat about equipped with tho latest and most economical machinery. Production at this rate would mean for the farmer, or a ton for his beets. Speaking of the possibilities of beet production here he was positive that with good culture and good seed any land about Monroe will raise from eigh- teen to twenty tons per acre. The soil for beets is the very best, being under- laid with lime stone, which is considered extremely desirable. Then the city is at the junction of two railroads, which is a great advantage. At Grand Island beets are hauled 100 miles by tho railroad at a cost of fifty cents a ton, and he did not see why the entire line of the Mineral Point division from Janesville west, and the Illinois Central from Madison to the Illinois river could not be utilized in this same 6rience in second.

The pulp makes good feed and this is another benefit that a beet sugar factory would 'be to a locality like Monroe. By j way of explanation he added that the beet sugar factory and tho cow go to- gether. The plant at Bay City, which was designed and built under tho personal direction of Mr. Wheeler's associates, is a phenomenal success. It is just com- pleting its season's run, with a profit to the factory from to two new factories of larger capacity have been organized at Bay City, the con- tracts for construction having been let. At ottier points in Michigan three other factory contracts have been let, one of these being at Beuton Harbor, last Fri- day. The farmers and business men at Bay City nro wildly excited, having made enormous profits in one year's beet cul- ture, some clearing from to an acre after allowing per acre rent for land and all other expense bills, includ- ing their own labor. Although many factories are being started he said there is no danger of overstocking tho country with sugar plants as it will take 500 such plants to furnish the sugar that is now being im- ported into the United states.
