about time the Ohie Legislature was

the neonle will net remain indillerent
much longer and allow this misery-

immemorial, spreading a boundless Bca of
unhappiness throughout the land.
Personally we have nothing te say
about Mr. Bradford. Since he has been
running the matrimonial machine he has

married mere than seventy couples in
four weeks, thus breaking the record of
all his predecessors.

The average temperature of the week
was about four degrees above the
normal, and much mere than the usual
amount of sunshiue resulted from the
generally cloudless weather which pre
vailed. Ne rain is reported,, except l'8ut
showers from the Eastern sections of the
state. Apart from the heavy general
rains of the 13th and 14th ult., there
has been practically no precipitation of
consequence in the stote for mere than a
month. This fact has rendered the seu
very dry and consequently unfit for
plowing and seeding, which work has
been irieatlv delayed. Fall pastures arc
as a rule very peer, owing te the same
cause. The greatest present need ei
farmers Is an abundant rainfall.
While the conditions described have
been unfavorable te the work mentioned,
they have greatly hastened the maturity
of corn and tobacco. The former crop Is
new practically safe and much of it is
The prospects for tobacco have im
proved materially, and everything in
dicates a crop of the finest quality,
tlmiiL'li it is nrebable that the amount
will fall short of the average About
three fourths of it has been cut, and It is
thought that at the latest the entire crop
will be safely housed within the next ten
days. The lateness of the season maKes
the danger from frost greater, but the
comparatively small portion of the crop
new exposed, even if it is damaged
cannot materially affect the general
clmractcr of the yield.
