Through the agency of come of the big companies quite a large number of cattle are being brought out of the state of Chihuahua Mexico.--Fiald and Farm. There il every indication that fat cat- tle will maintain a high price from now on, and many of the handlore helices there will be marked advance inlide the next sixty days. The b~t fed ~;earJ cold in Chicago last week at $7 a hun- dred, at Omaha at 8650, at South St. Joseph $6.30 and at St. Louis $6.35. ~Cost of Growing Sugar Beets. A Greeley farmer details his outlay upon a five-acre patch of sugar ~te i. follows: The cost of plowing, harrowing and leveling was $8.75. He drilled eighty. two pounds of seed at fifteen cents and thecostof seeding was fifty cents an acre, making the total cost of seed and drilling $14.00. The thinning was done in 13~ days at ~1.75 cents a day, mak- ing $22.75. The hoeing took seven days, which at $1,75 made $10.25. He spent four days cultivating and ditching and charged $2.25 a day for that, making $9, and two days at $1.76 irrigating, making $3.50, a total of $71.05 to raise the five acres of beets or $1421 au acre. Aside from harvesting the crop is finished. It will be noted that a larger part of this axpanditureis the same as might be made by every farmer on almost every crop and that he allowed himself good wages for all of it. It ie hardly possible that the harvesting and marketing will rates the cost of hie crop to more than $27 an acre. If he harvest~ six tons an acre the crop pays for itself, including wages for himmelf and teams. If he ham sight tons he gate $9 for rent of his land. If ho has ten tons, $18 rent. If he has flftean tons he gets $46.50. The Brand Muddle. Tho Oo]orado secretary of sta~ has concludad that there is no system by which the number of brands unrecord- od by the brand office, although f~ for their recording arc paid, can be deter- mined. In ocnasquonce tho only way in which the truo stlte of affairs will evor be known will be by complaints which como to the office. He is hoping that thore are not many moro brands which have been paid for and unrecordad, i. there is a po~ibility that the state may be brought into many damage suite should any decided 1o~ of oattlo be tracoable to tho blunders of tho office As the c4me lies now, there are known to be brands on the books marked doad which cattlemen have already selected and for which they have paid the fees. The only way these can be discovered, the se0retary says, is to wait until tho owners wish to make some change in thorn and produce their receipt for tho record fee Then the brand cad bo traced. The possibility will always exiit however, that two cattlemen may get hold of the same brand, ono having the record of purchase duly c~vored, ow- ing to the carelessness of the office, and the other having filed on it under the present administration. In this way it would be possible for a dasigning cattlo- man to secure the brand of another, who turned his cattle on the same range, pro. finning ignorance of the fact, and st4atl many cattle.--Field and Farm. New Plans For Elections. Writing from Garfield county to the Field and Farm F. W. Mallory pr|m|nte the following original suggestions on tha subject of elections: "The amendment to be submitted to the voters of the stats of Colorado next fall to have elections once in two years instead of every year, might go further and say that each coun- ty assessor be furnished with a voting schedule on which the name and resi- dence of each voter in the county shall be placed by him and returned to the county treasurer and county clerk, one copy to each. The treasurer could then, two weeks before election day, mail to each qualified voter one ticket and one addressed envelope to be returned to the county commissioners before election day. Said votes to be opened and count- ed by the county commissioners, treasur- er and clerk, the sheriff to bs in attend- Imceduring the counting to maintain order, ~ in court rooms. In countess which havo more than three commimion- ere and whore the treasurer and clork make the counting board even in num- bers the county judge should be made GaG of the board, so that a decision could always be reached. Furthermor~ the county commissioners should furnioh to the chairman of each party blanks to be certified that each voter was pr~mnt at him party caucus and voted at asme and giving'name and residence to be for. warded by maid chairman to tho county trei.urer and clerk to be compared by them with the amemor's voting blank. Any voter's name not appearing as be. log prment at his party caucus should be disqualified from voting at the next i~gular election following said caucus. Further, all elation| in tho elate of Colorado shall occur but once in four years; that registration boards be din continued; that a~sesecr, treasurer, clerk, commislioners and judge be given addi- [ tional pay for their cervices on election day; that all officers be elected for four years and that an officer can be as cep- ablo and honest at the cud of four years u st the cud of two," NEWS OF THE WEEK.!

Secretary Gage hen received an extra- ordinary contri0ution to the conscience fund amounting to $18,069. This is the largest sum ever returned in this way to the public funds. Two or three years ago the secretary received a contribution of a similar character. This lest contri- bution in all probability came from ecme one who evaded paying import duties at the port of New York. The conscience fund popularly so called, up to the close of the last fiscal year, amounted to $312,- 197. Small remittaucee are received weekly, and in many cases the sums are sent on through clergymen. The fund has been in operation for ninety years.

Ac- cording to those officers, nearly every- thing that Schley did was done wrongly. $&vod HIs Lifo. "I wish to say that I fool I owe my life to Kodol Dyspepsia Ours," writes H. C.

Fenallose gave a course of four lectures on Art in the .Normal chapel last week, to large and apprecia- tive a~diences. He is beyond question the best prepared man in the country to interpret Japanese and Chinese art. Dur- ing his residen~ in Japan of 23 years, ho was connected with the university of Tokio as teacher, and was later mado a director of the imperial school of art of Japan, which position he held with grit credit for a number of years, after which he went to Europe and Asia and atudiad thoroughly all the schools of ancient~ medieval and modern art. Dr. Fenailosa said that while Japan~m art was still in the primitive state, yet the people of Japan far excell the Euro- pe;the ill their iuheren~ appreciatiun for at~d kn:,wedge of the fundamental prin- eli.lee of art which mJderlie lisle, toni iliiIl c,,)uiposition. The gifted and fluent c. iti...~ believes it should be the purpose of rvery art teacher to bring about more regard for simplicity in artistic produe. tions which somehow bee been lost in our attempt to do too many things.

Scott, principal of the training school and his colleagues. l'L'i~ ~euior class, some memLers of tho ~ l'a(~lty and, quite a number of parents were present. The exercises consisted of iutroductory remarks by Dr. Scott a'ld a short address by Dr. Snyder, and lh~n lanterc slides were used to show th~ work being done in some of the grades which was at the same time ex- plashed by the teachers of the training st-heel. Different kind of work wes sh.wn, history, mathematical, nature work, literature, competition, sloyd and spelling. The patrons all joined in pro. no,inning it a very enjoyable evening, and were surprised to find the high grads of work being done by their children. There will be an"ther similar masting after the holida)s, at which the work of some other section of the teaining school will be exhibited. Theso Parent. meet- ings are very useful in developing tho proper relation between the pupil, the teacher and the parent. De. Snyder gave two lectures at the D(mglas county teachers' assaoiation on last Saturday, the ono in the forenoon being on "Reading" and in the afternoon tho "Livnng Momentum." The department of forestry at Wash- ington, D. C. has volunteered to givo the Normal school 150 or 200 hardy shrubs and trees for spring planting.
