Condition of the Small Creps Thronghent
Kentucky Up te Yesterday.
The averege temperature of the past
week was slightly below the normal, the
deficiency occurring during the first three
days. During the latter part there was a
slight excess. The amount of sunshine
received was about the normal, cloudless
weather generally prevailing except en
Monday and Tuesday. On thce days
very general and heavy rains fell through
out the state, the greatest amount being
reported from the counties bordering
upon the Ohie river, and the least from
the mountain districts in the Easteru
part of the state. It was uniformly dis
tributed, and the nverngc amount for the
entire state probably exceeded two Inches,
which is considerably in excess of the
neimnl. This was the Uut general pre
cipitation for weeks, nnd had the effect
of breaking the dreuth which had already
proved se detrimental te all crops. It
came tee late, however, te fully restore
the earlier ones, but will greatly aid late
corn, tobacco and pastures, and will ren
der the ground fit for fall plowing, which
work has been delayed by the long period
of warm, dry weather.
In 6ome portions of the state, the rain
was accompanied by destructive winds,
and the correspondent in Owsley county
reports considerable damage from high
winds and hall, which blew or beat down
the corn iu parts of that section.
The early corn crop is about made, and
docs net appear te be all that was antici
pated some time since, as the dry weather
hastened its maturity before it had fully
developed. With favorable weather con
ditions, a teod late crop may be looked
for, though in many counties even this
wns se injured by the dreuth that It can
not fully recover.
The weather has been favorable for the
cutting of tobacco, and the work has
made excellent progress. Frem reports
received it would appear that about hnlf
of the crop has been cut aud housed, and
that with ten days mere of geed weather
the greater portion of it will be saved.
Owing te late planting seme tobacco will
be very late ripeningand will, in cense
quence, be exposed te damage from early
frosts. All indications point te less than
an average crop.
Wheat sewing has commenced, and the
prospects ure that a very large acreage
will be planted.
The effects of the dreuth appear te be
mere serious in the Central aud Easteru
counties than in ether sections of the
stratc. Reports from the Western sec
tions are mere favorable In toue than
these received from ether sections.
THE GRAND ARMY.
Age uiul Disease Rapidly Thinning the
Hanks There is Ne Recruiting.
The present year's Encampment of the
Grand Aimy of the Republic will proba
bly rank among the most memorable and
important in the history of that organiza
tion and the finest displays of the kind
that were ever made en the continent,
with the exception, of course, of the
magnificent two days' review of the
armies in Washington iu 1805. The pro pre
cession of Tuesday was fully and vividly
described in The Commercial Gazette yes
terday. It was a gallant nnd triumphant
march by veterans summoned from their
peaceful homes in nil parts of the Union,
although the ranks, diminished in life's
campaigns, through n quarter ceutury of
years, did net contain a third of the num
ber in line for the crnnd review of the
armies at the clese of the war. The roll
calls showed of melancholy length the
lists of the missing, dreaming of battle
fields no mere; and life's warfare for se
long a time, while swords and muskets
were resting, uave told severely en surviv
ors. Age and discase have sadlv broken
the Grand Army, and Its solifiers net
yet beyend the prime of years and
strength are the exception.
There were lusty cheers, however, from
the ranks and from the spectators when
the brave defenders of the Republic
moved by cheers that had the spirit of
patriotism In them aud pride of Natien
and state, and aweke memories Of the
camp and weary march and smoky field
of battle. Hew old eyes were ablaze
with the firelights of youth and valor
when the tlfe and drum played the an
cient tunes of glory, or the finest music
bends in the country took them up nnd
told their story sweetly te the enthusias
tic hestsl Here were passing in review
the aged chivalry of the United States,
the remnants of the most splendid armies
that ever went te war, the enactors of
deeds that are shining en the pages of
history. Few of the great Captains were
living te mount their steeds and lead the
way as the tide of old heroes poured
through the streets, nnd the thought sug
gested aud saddened the ether thought
that net ngain in this full pomp and cir
cumstances would the veterans take up
their inarch of peace In cclebratlng the
soul-trying sufferings and undying com
radeshlp of war. The Grand Army Is rap

The Nuerllle Deal la the Courts.
The Pinevllle deal, with ether deals of
similar nature, will find its way iute the
courts, at !nast se says one of the inter
ested parties. It will ee remembered that
for seme time there has been en feet a deal
between the Southern Land Improvement
Company of Minneapolis, and E. H. Pat Pat Pat
torsen concerning the lease of a tract of
land te Patterson. It was generally un
derstood that if Patterson (lid net enter
into the lease the Pine Mountain Ireu
and Ceal Company would again get pos
session of the property. The lease can
not be entered Inte until the coming liti
gation is ended. In the Law and Equity
Court there will be filed a suit ngainst E.
H. Patterson and his Belgian syndicate
growing out of the partnership differ
ences between Patterson and the people
with whom he has been associated. The
papers, it is understood, have been drawn
up by Colonel Walter Evans and covers
eighteen type written J)ages Simulta
neously, similar suits will be brought in
the Federal Courts at Knexvllle and New
It is the opinion that this will cause the
Piuovllle deal te fall threngh, as the liti
gation cannot be ended short of a year,
and hardly In that time, as it is understood
some of the interested persons live in
Brussels. The litigation, of which the
Pincvillc feature represents but a small
part, Involves, it is understood, 5,000,
000. The Southern Land Improvement
Company entered into the deal with the
Pine Mountain Iren and Ceal Company
in the hope that Patterson and the Bel
gian syndicate would lease a portion of
the Plneville property, thus enabling
payments te be made. The failure of
this lease te be entered into has kept the
deal hanging fire for se many months.
