Spencer, observer temporarily in
charge of the crop service, has issued
the following bulletin setting forth the
condition of the crops throughout the
state for the last week:
The week has been warm, with
light showers in most localities. The
daily mean temperature has averaged
6 degrees above normal throughout
the state. The daily maximum, tem
peratures have ranged from 85 to 95
The dry weather of the previous
week continued, except in a few small
areas, where an inch or more of water
fell Nearly all sections, however,
received light showers during the
week, and these have proved cf some
benefit to late com and pastures, and
where sufficiently heavy have placed
the soil in condition fcr fall plowing
All sections are now in need of nin.
The aim weather of the last week
has caused -early com to mature rap
idly. Considerable of the early plant
ed is being cut for fodder in a num
ber of southern counties. Late corn
continues to show some improvement
in most localities.
Fall plowing is progressing rapidly
in the southeastern section; in other
localities the soil is generally too dry
to plow, and this work s beng re
tarded. Reports indicate that a large
or an increased acreage of fall wheat
will be sown. Haying is nearly com
pleted in a number of northern coun
ties and the crop is good.

more or less controversy has resulted
fro my actios is. graating a limited

II desire that the public may hare

tending circumstances, I will state
Briefly the substance of the conditions
ftyen which such action is based.
t was actuated in granting a parole,
limited to sixty days, because I had
kftowiedge that after Mr. Bartley's
retirement from office he maintained
that if grveft. a year's time in which
te realize oa his arrangements he
would be able to pay the state every
dolalr due it. The fact in a space of

I & nSi- tn hut nrnuanr a talld in
over 1150,000, 20,000 of which was
paid on the day of his arrest, strength
ened both by his statements, repeated
ly made to me, that he would pay back
every dollar of his shortage, and my
belief that if given an opportunity at
this time he would undertake to carry
out his promises, with the object in
view of relieving the taxpayers and
of removing tfrfc painful account from
the pages of the records after four
vears of exnensive litigation from
which not one cent has been recovered
from either the principal or bonds
men. I granted the parole with the un
derstanding on my part that he. Bart
ley, was to proceed to reimburse the
state and in addition was to render
an accounting of the funds lost in
banks from which he was unable to
recover, which materially reduces the
amount published by the newspapers
as having been misappropriated- Hun
dreds of people of various political
affiliations had petitioned me to grant,
not a parole, but a full and uncondi
tional pardon, and among the peti
tioners were many of our oldest and
most respected citizens, but I was un
able to justify in my own mind such
an act and granted a parole for sixty
days only, conditioned as above stat
ed. I have given Mr. Bartley an oppor
tunity to right the wrong and my ac
tion as regards the extension of fur
ther clemency in the premises shall

What is probably the most sragniar !

by E. A. Suverkrop of Philadelphiav
Mr. Suverkrop has for some years
keer& making journeys to South and
Central America, where he has search
ed for rare orchids and other plants.
je a7waT-nS orchid which has now

1 of the plant, One hot afternoon Mr.
f Suverkrop sat down to rest beside a
lagoca en the Rio de la Plata. Near
by was a forest of dead, shorn trees
which had actually been choked to
death by orchids climbing cactus.
In front of hiat aad stretching out over
the warm waters of the still lagoon
was a .braac at one of these dead
trees. The branch was ahcut a foot
above the surface of the water, and
rioting upon its decaying wood were
orchids and cacti, the plants which
had caused its death. Here and there
were clusters of the common p!anta
del ayre," and twining all around it a
network of green cacti- Among the
orchids was one different from the
rest, which immediately caught Mr.
Suverop's attention. The leaves were
cf the shape of a sharp lance head.
They grew all around the root and
radiated from it. From the center or
axis of the plant hung a long, slender
stem about one-eighth of an inch in j
thickness and one-quarter of an inch
wide. The lower end of this stem was
ia the water to the depth of about
four inches. It was unlike any orchid
Mr. Suverkrop had ever seen or heard
of, and he went nearer to examine his
discovery. He touched the plant,
when, to his surprise, the stem which
frar been in the water gradually con
tracted and rolled itself up in a coil
on the top of the plant- It was a tube
and as it rolled Itself up it deposited
the water, which had been taken in
by the part of the tube submerged, on
to the roots of the plant. The discov
erer now watched the plant, and found
Tfrt when it was thirsty it let down
its hose Into the water and dipped up
the stream until its thirst was satis
fied, when the tube remained coQed up
like a hese until it was time for the
orchid to take another drink. Gener
ally the coiling process is slow, the
plant drinking like a a gentleman and
taking its time about taking its re
freshment. But if the plant is touched
the coiling process is accelerated.
DESCRIBES A HASHEESH 9EH-
Traveler la Cairo Vlatrs Retort Where
the Drag- I Smokrtl.
A German physician describes his
visit to a den of hasheesh smokers in
Cairo. Hia gd was a donkey boy,
who could speak German. In a dark
and dirty alley they came to a lighted
doorway. Entering, they passed
through a room filled with men play
lug domincs to the smoking-room.
"Here," says the explorer, "we were
welcomed like old acquaintances. The
room was hiled with smoke of pecu
liar aromatic odor and the smokers
were in a very happy mood- On the
walls were Arabic inscriptions and
pictures of European beauties. In one
eomer was a stone bearing a mass of
glowing coals- A man cut up some
tobacco, another filled a clay pipe bowl
with ir, a third bit off little pieces cf
brown hasheesh paste and laid them
down en the tobacco, a fourth added
same slowing coals and attached th
bowl to a narghileh or water pip
which he then handed to his neigh- '
tor. The pipe passed from mouth to j
mouth, eacn ttt taking a few whiffs
and expelling tne smoke from nose
and mouth.' The German physician
declined the proffered pipe and or
dered coffee. All the smokers talked
and laughed incessantly. Mcst of
them were young or middle-aged men.
Suddenly an elderly "min rose to hii
reet and stood staring at the Soar.
with a vacuous smile. He was a
hasheesh wreck, an imbecile. "He is
a philosopher,' said one of the others.
and a general l3zzh. followed.

The late Father Petit was one of the
best known priests in the Milwaukee
diocese. It may well be said that he
was a fine representative cf the pio

are told of him On one occasion he
was preaching in St- Raphael's church,
