State Crop and Weather Report.
Tho past wook has boon cloudy and
cool, with heavy gonoral rains.
Tho avorago dally temperature de
ficiency has boon about ten degrees in
tho eastern and twolvo degroos in tho
western countios. Tho dally maximum
tomporatures wore slightly above 70
degroos tho first part of tho wook and
50 degroos on tho last three days of tho
week. The maximum temperatures
were very low on tho Oth and 7th in tho
entire state. In tho western countios
thoy woro about or below freezing and
heavy frosts resulted. Light frosts oc
curred on tho same datos in tho eastern
Tho rainfall has been above normal
in all oxcopt tho extreme northeastern
countios, whoro it has boon light
from a quarter to half nn inch. Jn tho
southern half of tho state It has ex
ceedod an Inch and in most of tho
counties south of tho Platto river it has
ranged from two to live inches. A lit
tle snow fell In tho western counties
on tho Oth and 10th but molted as fast
as it reaohod tho ground.
. ,'l'ho heavy rains of tho week havo re
garded all work, nevertheless, haying
and threshing are about completed
and fall plowingl Is gonorally well ad
vauced. Tho rains placed tho ground
in excolltnt condition for Bowing small
grain, and a largo acroago of fall wheat
will bo sown In southorn counties dur
Ing tho next ten days; tho ground had
been plowed boforo tho rain but llttlo
or none aowa.
Tho drj hot weather of tho three
weeks preceding this ono ripened and
dried out corn so fast that now nearly
all tho corn in tho eastern counties is
hardoncd beyond all possible Injuries
by frost. Tho heavy frosts in tho ex
treme western counties on tho 6th and
7th killed lato corn quite generally.
Somo damago is reported to late coin
as far oast as Dawson county.
Pastures havo boon materially im
proved by tho rains of tho week.
Tho "funny man" of an exchange
was recently assigned to writo up the
market report and pioducod tho fol
lowing. Butter is strong at 15c and
ablo to hold its own. Yeast cakos aro
rising rapidly. Bananas aro slipping
along at the old price with an occasion
al drop. Watermelons aro going down
moro rapidly than thoy woro a week
ago. Cheeso, Stirling and skipping
along lively. Syrups are sticking nt
tho prices and aro about a pint mote
to the quart than thoy were last winter.
Greon apples aio growing less. Dried
apples aro swelling tho market. Chick
one arejpicking up a llttlo.
A nowspapcr in a neighboring town

Editoh Chief Wo woro somewhat
surprised to soo tho notico of the mur

She is alivo and well. In the first

In regard to how wo like the couutry
we like it real well. The summer has
been very pleasant, only a fow very
hot days, plenty of rain aud hardly nny
wind. Crops aro splondid and corn is
an extra good crop. Castor boans aro
good and cotton looks splendid, it is
just beginning to burst. Thero has
boon qulto a bit of sickness but it ts
abating now. It was mostly along tho
rivers and crooks. This is a good
placo to raiso vegetables of all kinds.

Notwithstanding the groat noiso wo
aro hoaring about mismanagement iu
tho army, it scorns to have boon trtio
always that in war pestilence killed
more men than bullets did; in this war
it is snid, moro men might die of dis
ease than in battle, but tiro disportation
of othor days would not bo seon. In
tho Crimean war England lodt 24,000
8,400 killed in battle or who died of
their wounds, and 20,244 of disease.
Tho French lost C3.244 80 per ceut by

Ono of our exchanges makes tho as
sertion that tho garao of baso ball was

ilrst gamo of baso ball was playod in

was tho lirst coach, ho coaohed Evo
when sho stole Ilrst. Adam stole sec

Young follow horo is something to
romombor: If your lot is to bo placed
among strangors, tho fact that you aro
a republican will give you a better
guarantco of character than a trunk
full of letters of rocommondatlon. Tho
republican boy boliovos that! he can
succeed by hard work. Supposo a
good business man wants to employ a
young man for a difllcult and responsi
ble position will ho seok ono who has
boon taught that tho country it going
to tho dogs, that honosty doesn't pay,
that ono can't succeed by work or
merit; or will he sooL ono who boliovos
the opposito? To bo a republican is a
good way to succeed; republicanism
promotos happiness; it brightens tho
intellect, warms tho hoart and elevates
tho charactor. Republicanism should
bo tho faith of overy ambitious man,
young or old. Populism is all right for
the fellow who has struck tho bottom
and nevor intends to mako an effort to
gat up again. Ex.
