CONDITION OF WINTER WHEAT.

WAsmsoTOH, April 12. The April

condition of winter wheat on April 1
T7.4, against 81.2 last year, and that
of rye, 85.7.
The averages of the principal wheat
States are: Ohio, 87; Michigan, 74;
Indiana, 83; Illinois, 72; Missouri, 80;
Kansas, ti2. The average of these six
States is 74.8, against 77 in April, 1891
It is 88 in New York, 87 in Pennsyl
vania, 80 in Maryland, 87 in Virginia,
the Southern states ranging from 83
in Tennessee to 100 in Texas.
The Pacific states show a favorable
condition, with the exception of Cal
ifornia, where too much rain Is re
ported. Seeding was late In the Ohio
and Mississippi valleys because of
widely prevalent drought, rausiug

Over considerable areas in the At

States seeding conditions were favora

noted In some parts of tb tes of

te One rami! Hlaoe 1773.
In the bsyoa flowing through the
large sugar plantation of Gabriel Mon
taigne, lying seven or eight miles
south of Thibodeaux, La., there was
recently killed an alligator known to
be something over 120 years old. In
1773 Mr. Montaigne's father's grand
father, immigrating to this country
from France, purchased this tract of
land from its original Spanish owner,
and in an attempt to clear the bayou
of the ferocious and apgres&ive alli
gators which filled it to t to number of
thousands succeeded In Liuing many of
them, and among them the mother
of several young ones, three
of which he killed also, but the
fourth got away, leaving five or
aix Inches of his toil behind him, how
ever. This one was afterward seen
from time to time and always recog
nized by this ruining portion of his
anatomy. lie grew to be something
of a pet with succeeding generations,
who, however, thought it safest to
keep him at a distance despite his
friendly advances, but it nas been a
favorite task with the younger Mon
taignes of the family to go out after
each meal with tidb.ts for Old Shorty,
as be was called because of his de
formity. This age of 120 years is not
unparalleled with these animals, many
being said to attain the age of 200,

WILLING TO TAKE A PENSION.
Kantuobjr Darby Who Wanted an Offloe
But Mot Work.
The story of a recent application
made to Senator Blackburn by an old
negro from Kentucky portrays the
eagerness to secure something from
tne government, whatever form the
prize may take. The senator was one
day informed that "Old Mose" had ar
rived from Woodford county. Ken
tucky, and was waiting to consult
with him privately on "er important
"Well, Moses," began Senator Black
burn, as the grinning African waa
ushered into his presence, "what

"Mars Joe," replied Mose, impres
sively, "I'se got 'portant business, aah.
I wants er office."
"You want an office! Why Moae.
what can you do?"
"Do, Mars Joe? What does every
body do dart's got er orflce? Bless yer
heart, Mars' Joe, yer don't nn'erstand
ole Mose. I hain't lookin' fo' work,
aah; I only wants er orflce."
Senator Blackburn, with as much
seriousness as he could command, as
sured Mose that he waa powerless to
assist blm to an "orflce," but that be
might provide employment in some
private concern. Old Mose'a face fell,
but soon brightened again.
"Well, Mars' Joe," said he. hope

A minister, gifted with the power of
seeing tne humorous side of life amid
his pastoral duties, can tell a story

the supreme court They enjoy a
laugh with the best of men, and their
mirth is as infectious as it is often un
expected. One night a St Paul clergy
man was in a jovial frame of mind.and
he related the following incident for
the benefit of his companion: A
brother minister once had occasion to
marry a couple of darkles, and while
it was a recognized custom in his part
ox tne country that the officiating cler
gyman should salute the bride, this
particular instance was a little more
than the minister could stand. So at
the conclusion of the ceremony he re
marked that while it was the usual
custom to salute the bride on this oc
casion he would omit it "Yes," re

The other day, 1b speaking of the im
proved facilities for luxurious travel in
this country says:
"We are abandoning the old system
of lighting the cars with kerosene
lamps, and more than half the coaches
bave already been equipped with the
most improved and the safest system of
lighting known in this country or
Europe. With the new Pintsch lamps
there can be no possibility of danger
from explosion or otherwise, as the
apparatus is all out side and under the
car, and in the event of mishap, the
fixtures become detached and the gas
escapes into the air."
The brilliant Plntech light, the finest
car illuminant In existence, now In use
on the Union Pacific System fulfills all
the requisite conditions so happily
noted by Mr. Depew.
