The Oiiio board of agriculture makes an
estimate hr Atiirtist of 72 tier cent, of a
full crop of wheat, 70 per cent, of corn, and

Oregon reports her surplus of wheat for
export at 300,000 tons,
The Italian fruit-dealers of New Orleans
have put in operation a conspiracy to con
trol that branch of business. The import
ers demanded protection from the federal
and municipal authorities, and four Italians
were arrested for threatening' b,xlily harm
to anyone purchasing fruit from the cargo
of the steamer E. Ii. Ward, Jr. It appears
that when the vessel arrived from Central
America the retailers demanded an inimodi-
ate opportunity to purchase a part of her
load, but the captain wanted to ship ftur
cars to the west at once. He was not per
mitted to do so, and when the fruit was
placed on the wharf those who had intend
ed to purchase were subjected to intimida
tion from the itnlians for two days, the
bauanas spoiling in the meantime.

Thl Nocturnal Cow,
Laramie has about seven cows that
annoy me a good deal. The prevailing
cow for this season soems to bo
a seal-brown cow with a f'.ub tail,
which is arranged aa a night koy. She
wears it banged. Tho other day I had
just plautod my celluloid radishes, and
irrigated my royal Bengal turnips, and
sown my hunting-case summer squash
es. That night tho blow fell. The
queen ot night was high in the blue
vault of heaven; so, too, the twinkling
stars. All nature was hushed to re
pose. I hard a stealthy step near the
conservatory, and 1 arose. It was a
lovely sight. At the head of the pro
cession there was a seal-brown creature
with a tail like the handle of a pump.
That was the cow. Following at a
rapid gait wits a bewitching picture of
alahaster limbs and Gothic joints and
WamstttU muslin night-robe. That
was me. By and hy there was a crash,
and the seal-brown cow went home,
carrying the gar Ion gate with her as a
kind of keepsake. She had plenty of
garden gates at home in her collection,
but she had none of that particular
pattern. The writer of these lines then
carefully brushed the sand off his feet
with a pillow-sham, and retired to rest.
The next morning 1 went out to feed
my royal self-acting hen, and 1 found
this same cow wedged into the hen
coop. I secured a large picket front
the fence, and took my cont oil, aud
breathed in a good breath. I did not
want to kill her; 1 simply wanted U
make her wish slut had died of mem
branous croup when she was young. I
brought down the picket with the con
densed strength, and eagerness, and
wrath of two long, suflerinj? years. It
struck the corner of the hen-house.
There was a deafening crash, and thou
all was still, save the low, rippling
laugh of the cow, as she stood In tho
