The reports on the wheat crop are
not very satisfactory. The threshing
last week indicates a much less yield
than anticipated. Some fields have
threshed out 20 to 25 bushels per acre.
The berry is small and unfortunately
more or less smut appears which dam
ages wheat very materially and es
pacially if in the grain. From what
we can learn the market is- unsettled
and probably will start at CO to 05e.
We understand several sales have been
made at these figures. Some four or
five cars shipped last week and should
the weather be favorable for threshing
this week there will ba several thous
and bushels shipped.

Death of Mrs. Ileriidon.
After months of untold suffering
from a complication of throat and lung
diseases, Mrs. Helen K. Ilerndon, wife
of Capt. William Ilerndon, died in this
city Sunday morning at S o'ctock.
Mrs. Ilerndon had been in bad health
for many years and for several months
was usufast. bhe was the oldest
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. H.
Kinnaird. The life o: Mrs. Ilerndon
was surely a pure one. She was a
zealous christian and the most loving
and devoted mother we" ever knew.
She had such deep love for her family
that when she was suffering the great
est pain she asked them to remain out
of sight, that they may not sulfur by
seeing her suff jr. A short time before
her death she called each of her chil
dren in and admonished them to put
their trust in God, live a Uhrist-like
life and "they would surely meet her
in a place where they would be forev
er united. Mrs. Ilerndon was a mem
ber of the Presbyterian church and
was brought up to study the bible and
practice it's teachings. The early
training given by her pious mother
never left her, and she went through
life a God-loving and God-fearing
christian. The husband and children
have the sympathy of all the commu
nity in their great bereavement. They
should remember that their loss is
her gain, as she is, according to the
teachings of the bible, now where no
suffering is known and where she will
peacefully await the sounding of the
trump which will ushor in the glad

Lieut Lucien Young, whose mother
lived in Lancaster for many years and
is himself well-known here, has niled
up more honors by his bravery. The
gallant lieutenant commands a little
boat named the "Hist." He was sent,
with several other small crafts, by
Admiral Sampson, to Manganillo, to
destroy four Spanish gunboats which
the Admiral had been informed were
lying in that harbor. Instead of find
ing only that array of fighting craft,
they encountered, in cresent forma
tion, nine vessels, including a torpsdc
boat and a cruiser. Th.ey also found
themselves flanked-by land batteries
and armed pontoons, while a heavy
battery of field artillery was in posi
tion on the water front to aid in mak
ing warm the reception of Sampson's
vessels. The American's pitched in
anyway. The Hist was hit 11 times,
but the plucky little craft withstood
the heavy fire gallantly. During the
engagement the American vessels suc
ceeded in sinking two of the Spanish
irunboats. one sloop and one pontoon.
T.iey also disabled the enemy's torpe
do boat, did much damage to sev--r.il
of the gunboats in the harbor, and
made a .marked impressisn on the
Spanish land batteries." As soon as
the Hist and Wampatuck discovert d
that the Hornet was disabled, their
captains decided that it would be use
less to ngnt longer against sucn a su
perior enemy. Accordingly the Wam
patuck hastened to the rescue of the
Hornet, t ie Hist meantime keeping
up its sharpest fire. The Hist for
merly was the Hespita', is 174 feet long,
23,25 feet wide, .-and has a displace
ment of 472 tons. '

Several P:iits Say Cajit. W. C. Mel'ar
lanl was Killed at Santiago.
A report of the battle at San Jm,n
Hill, one of the strongest the Ann-r-icans
encountered, say Captain W. C.
McFarland was killed in the battle.
He is a brother-in-law of the editor of
this paper and has many warm friend-,
here. Other reports, published in the
Enquirer, Courier-Journal and larger
papers, say he is only wounded in thu
leg. The latter report is accepted as
the correct one, as the battle took
place last Saturday and all the regi
mental officers being acquainted with
Capt McFarland's family, and know
iug their address, would certainly havis
informed them had he been killed.
Capt. McFarland is a very large man
and a shot from a r'lla striking the
bone of his'leg would certainly cause
him to falL As the company wa
