Little activity marked the day in the campaign for the establishment of a beet sugar factory in the Rogue River valley, the local committee waiting on the result of the investigations of Soil Expert Storey in Grants Pass. If the acreage there comes up to expectations, the required amount will be at hand, and the next move up to the sugar interests.
Expert Storey expects to finish his testing in that district this afternoon, and has promised to advise the committee at once by telephone of his findings. If they are favorable the committee will advise Messrs. Bramwell and Nibley that they are ready to take the next step in the negotiations.
Both the beet sugar committee and the promoters are anxious to settle the issue at once, as the time is exceedingly short, if any beets are to be grown and cut this season.
W.E. Smith, missionary of the American Sunday School Union, just returned from a trip in the country, where he has been holding special services with one of his Sunday schools. He was with them eight days, resulting in the conversion of a class of 11, mostly young people, and the organizing of a Young People's Society of Christian Endeavor. Missionary Smith organized this Sunday school November 2 last with a membership of 20, which number has nearly doubled since then. The Sunday school is surely the recruiting station of the church, and the christian ... who does not do their best in promoting the Sunday school work to its greatest efficiency has missed many golden opportunities.
