You have heard people complain

Corn look as well as could be ex

with a late fall there will be plenty
f corn for all necessary needs. I

but not enough to effect seriouslj'
unless damaged by something un
known at present. At George
I lean's, S. I. Long's, S. M. Davis',
Peter Meisinger's, and at others
whose names we are not familiar
with, we noticed fine fields of corn
We also noticed some corn no
plowed yet, and some just plowed
for the first time, while some have
corn laid by and others just lay in
Fall wheat in most places looks
good although in some places poor.
It is maturing rapidly and soon wil
be ready to harvest. Spring wheat
will be as good as winter, wheat, in

years but not below the average. It
is maturing last. .

damaged between now and cuttuig,

to harvest will be on hand before the
farmers are ready.

The farmers have never had be,t
ter prospects for ay than they have
this season. The grass is thick and
long and now ready to cut. At many
places we heard the "click" of the
mower. Clover is being cut now,
timothy will do better later. ' ,
On the whole our trip was a
pleasant one as well as sort of
romantic. It is certainly beautiful
to behold fields of grain waving
backwards and fowards, each
shedding its golden lustre.
As a general thing the farmery
are very busy-, being put behind by
the backward spring and now try
ing to cat;h. up, in order to get
ready for harvest.

frantic over a social that was to be

bond question for a new school

presents to all musicians except flute
playfers. He played the flute reniarka
bly well himself, and his proficfencj
sometimes led to acts- that caused dis
appointment to his brother artists. A
famous flutist once visited Potsdan
and asked permission to play to the king
hoping that Frederick would show his
appreciation of his skill by some valua
Frederick received him graciously,
and listened attentively while he played
a difficult piece.
"You play very well," he said, "and
I am very glad to have heard a virtuoso
of such ability. I will give you a proof
of my satisfaction." .
So saying he left the 'room. . The mu

to first go down the sloping sheet, cross
the valley and . then climl- the moun

safely reaches a harbor.
In this connection the interesting cal-.
culation has been made that in mid

A Storage llattery Locomotive.
A storage battery locomotive has been
put into operation in Wurtemberg, run
ning from some paper mills at Ravens
burg to the station on the steam
railroad, about 2 miles away.
This locomotive, which hauls pas
sengers as well as freight, weighs
eight tons and carries 100 cells of a
gelatinous storage battery, which sup
ply current to the motor. The cells
weigh two tons. The line has no very
heavy grades. The locomotive makes
on an average four trips daily and hauls
a load of twenty tons between the two
points in twenty minutes. It seems to
do the work. New York TelegramT

CUPID AND THE CAT.
A Suffering Feline Came Between Two
Souls That lieat as One.
He lives in Evanston, and during th
past two years has been paying hi9 ad
dresses to one of the most charming
girls on the north side. The wedding
day has not been named, but their en
gagement was announced almost a year
Several weeks ago, while they were
walking home from church one Sunday
night, they ran across a cat that was
wailing piteouwly on a doorstep. "Do
you hear that, Jim?" she exclaimed,
grasping his arm with a closer' grip.
"There's something the matter with that
poor little pussy. I'm going to see what
"Nonsense!" he replied. "Let's go on;
the cat will take care of itself."
"No; let's see what is the trouble."
Without more ado the young woman
ran up to the cat and was horified to
find that the animal had evidently been
run over by a wagon, as its spine was
dislocated and it was barely able to
crawl by dragging its hind legs.
"She's done for, sure enough," com
mented the Evanstonian. "She . won't
last long. Come on, now."
The girl suddenly straightened up to
her full height. "Do you mean to say
that yon would leave any animal to
suffer like this? There is a drugstore
on the next corner. Run over there and
buy an ounce of chloroform. Hurry,
now, there's a dear!"
"Nonsense! You don't suppose I'm
going into the business of doctoring siok
cats on the streets at night, do you? Be

"I certainly am. If you don't do it I
will go after it myself."

"Hurry up, dear!"
For a moment the young man did not
stir. The blood rushed to his face, and
he began to grow angry. "See here!"
he exclaimed. "This is carrying mat
ters entirely too far. I will permit no
woman to make a fool of me like this.
I'll get your chloroform if you really in
sist, but I warn you you'll never have
a chance to do such a trick again. I will
never have anything to do with you
again. Mark that!"
"Get the chloroform."

Here this story should end. A regard
for the truth, however, compels the ad

A Successful Ruse.
A couple of thirsty fellows who had
been loafing all the forenoon on the
quays at Stockholm were struck with a
brilliant idea. They borrowed an old
brandy keg and half filled it with water.
Then one of them slung it on his shoul
der and took it to the nearest spirit
vault, where he stated that he had been
sent by one of the -skippers in port to
have the keg filled with brandy.
"The captain is sorry he only got it
half full yesterday and thinks it would
be better to have it filled to the top."
The keg was accordingly held under
the tap till it was full, and the fellow
hoisted it on his 6houlder, but as he was
about to walk off with it he was stop
ped by the clerk, who demanded pay
ment for the spirits.
"Hasn't our skipper a running ac
count?" "Certainly not."
"Bless me! I must have gone to the
wrong shop! There is nothing for it
but to empty half the keg back again."
This was no sooner said than done;
after which our hero merrily went in
search of his companion. Dagblaedt.
The Indian Attendants on the Queen.
The Indian attendants who now inva

of great trouble to the court officials
who have charge of the various arrange

by themselves in a separate saloon, and
their meals and all refreshments must
be served to them in the train at the
stopping stations instead of their going
to the buffets with the suite and the
Special arrangements have also to be

Taking Off a Horse Collar.
It is not always ignorant persons who
fail to observe closely. Coleridge and
Wordsworth took a drive with a friend.
After great difficulty the horse was un
harnessed, except they could not get the
collar off. One of them said it was a
"downright impossibility" and that the
horse's head must have grown since the
collar was put on. "La, master," said
a girl, "turn the collar upside down."
