Louisville, July 15. Ed. Herald:
The storm king waxed strong, but we
are safe in saying that the elements
were less condensed than in some
other place we read of, but since the
smoke has cleared away we are pleas
ed to see that the crops are not so
materially damaged as was first ex
pected, the quantity is good, but grain
is damaged by being flattened to the
ground, rendering it difficult to har
vest, in some cases, but notwithstand
ing the harvest is ripe and people are
gathering it in. Corn has grown won
derfully under the pressure of 100 de
grees since the storm and we believe
will equal that of last year. The dam
age to roads and bridges from high
water is considerable; nearly every
county bridge in this vicinity is dam
aged more or less and most all little
bridges have gone out, roads are
washed, impeding travel and trade
considerable. The stone dam at Mr.
Schluntz's mill went out; it bad just
been finished at a cost of $400, but
we are pleased to learn that Mr. S. is
one of our invincible men, and has
began work already; this is the third
dam washed out this summer at the
same place. No material damage was
done in town here. The railroad must
have been the greatest loser, the track
was reported by a tramp to have been
washed out in many places, and busi
ness, for the first time in the history
of the road, we believe, was brought
to a dead halt, but trains have now
assumed their wonted regularity. The
& U vi:7 U
pottery moves steadily upward and
ere long we shall be favored with a
drink from a home-spun traditional
brown jug. While speaking of drinks,
brings up the saloon question. The
tiial of Mr. Peterson came off against
him for ?25 and costs. This was on
the charge of selling liquor without
license. Other saloons have kept their
promise and do not open their doors
on Sunday, but Mr. P. still persists in
breaking the law, for last Sunday his
place was in full blast. The recent
hot weather is very favorable for love
affairs; the awakening of honest peo
ple from their tranquil slumbers last
week bears abundant evidence of this;
it was the musical sound of the cow
bells' dstant chime, accompanied with
instruments of discord, and all for the
benefit of friend Badger who was
married to Miss Eva Bryant last
week. We wish him a "clean fireside,
and a merry life."
