The State Rtgistr of Tuesday says:
"From all parts of tho state- the most
encouraging reports reach us as to the
crop prospects. Everywhere farmers
are pushing planting to the fullest ex
tent, and everything at present Is more
favorable than usual, which the late
pleasant weather has materially aided.
Illinois will produce more grain this
year, if nothing happens, which now
seems impossible, than has ever been
raised la this state."
. The Metropolis Twit says: "This
week we have made another look around
among tbe crops. We fear tho expecta'
tlon for a superior wheat crop may not
be fully realized. We have heard many
say that the like of wheat that would be
raised in Massac connty was never before
known. We hope such may be the case
and that the producers may get a good
price, but after going Into several fields:

Mn. Podge, statistician of the depar

result of investigation of the lasses lroin
diseases of swlac during the past twel vo
months, the destruction ot 4,000,000 ani
mals of all ages, and a money loss of
more than $20,000,000. One fifth of the
reported loss occurs in the State of Illi

souri, Iowa and Indiana, which together
lose $10,000,000. Florida, Alabama, Mis
sissippi and Louisiana have nearly as
large a percentage in loss in numbers,
aggregating In value 51,500,000. The
losses are very small in the country bor
dering on the great lakes and tho Pacitio
coast. Of the rctuaiuiug districts, West
Virginia comes nearest exemption, aud
Ohio and tho Atlantic coast States
stand better than tho alluvial districts.
The apparent loss is equivalent to a third

Illinois would assuuto the burdens of a

power of congress to regulate the value
