Farmers who have extra good oats,
wheat, flax, milUt, etc., should compete
for the fifty dollar premium oflered by
the State Board of Centennial Managers
for the best display of grains and grasses.
It would be quite an honor to Allen
county to furnish the specimens of grain
and grasses from this State for the cen
tennial. Read particulars in ap article

At the election this fall there are
quite a number of offices to fill : Repre

Deeds, County Clerk, Coroner, Surveyor,
Commissioner, Township Treasurer,
Township Clerk, Road Overseer, and in
some townships Justices and Constables.
We suggest that it wonld be a good idea
for persons wanting any of the above
offices to take the lead and have their
names announced in The Register.
So far as we can learn the farmers
have, in nearly every instance where
their crops have been destroyed, replant
ed the same. If any of them should
have ground they are not going to plant
in corn we would recommend to their
consideration an article on the fourth
page in reference to the culture of buck
wheat. This crop can be made almost
as profitable as wheat, and it does not
need to be sown before the last of next
Johnny Gilmore, of theWilson Coun
ty Citizen, puts it thus: "When a girl
crops her front hair, and pulls it down
over her forehead like a Mexican mus
tang, and then tics a piece of red velvet
aroundher neck, who can wonder at the
number of pale-faced young men that
throw away their ambition and paa
sleepless nights in trying to raise down
on their upper lips."
John is unmarried, and of course is
competent to testify in this case.
For two or three wrfca we had hop

(and tell the truth) that the grasshop

have been unable to do so. Last week

the first of this week tj,f have all dia-
appeared, so far as we can learn, throug-

are so few that no further damage from

Webb Bostwick informs us that
among his potatoes he lias some that the

among these there is a bug hatching out
that i death on potato vines. As none
of these bugs have made their appear
ance among the potatoes that are grown
from home seed, he is of the opinion that
their eegs were in the dirt among the
potatoes that came from Iowa. As there
was a car-load of these potatoes sold here
at Iola it would be well for persons who
planted of them to watch and kill these
bugs as they hatch out. If not killed
off by another year they may be numer
ous enough to destroy the potato crop.
The bug is of a species never before seen
in this part of the country.

Time was called by the Umpire at 3:25

account of several appeals from the de
cisions of the Umpire the game was pro
tracted till 0:45. The game should have
been nlaved in one-half the time. But
one double play was made during the
game a fly ball taken and thrown to
first base by D. Collins, thereby putting
two out. On a forced run with Davis at
the bat, a splendid bat brought the three
base runners in and left the batter on
third base. Other good plays were made
upon both sides but lack of' room pre
