A circular received at this ollico yester
day from St. Louis, giving tho crop reports

more than an average yield.

hundred dollars altogether.
Dallas has a revelation. An organiza
tion is exposed, known as tho American
Knights of Honor. It is said to bo a se
cret anti-Catholic society, something like
the old Know-Nothings, and to have lodges
all over the United States. Its members
are chiefly republicans, and President Ar
thur is reported to belong to tho Washing
ton branch. Jesse Graut, a relative of Gen.
Grant, established the Dallas organization,
Senator Ben Hill's physician does not
promise him more than six months of life,
at thti very farthest. II is disease has devel
oped into active cancer of a most viruleut
form, and he is growing steadily worse.
Even his intimate friends were unable to see
the senator betore be left Washington, on
account of the critical condition he was in.
The disease is hereditary iu tho family. It
is not at all likely, therefore, that tho sen
ator will ever again be able to tako his seat
in tho senate.
In reply to a letter from a county offi
cer asking whether or not the present sher
iffs and treasurers are eligible to ro election
under the new amendment, Ex-Governor J.
M. Palmer, of Springfield, wrote: "The
question of your eligibility does not admit
of a moment's doubt. The uinendiuent only
applies to persons elected after its adoption.
At tliis moment Attorney General Mc
Cartney has come into my office and lie
agrees with mo that the constitution only
acts prospectively and all officers elected
before 1881 arc eligible to re-eleclion."
The cases agaiust the two negroes, Ab.
Brown and Wm Fountain, for stealing cows,
are extending to others, and their utter
ances implicating others resulted yesterday
in the arrest of young Lulu Koebler. It is
charged that Koebler had something
to do with the disappearaoco of Mr. A. P,
Schroeder's, Mr. Charles G oyer's and Ur.
Redburn's cows, all of which were missed
in quick succession within the last few
weeks. As stated before, tho hide, head
and hoofs of Mr. Goyer'a eow was found in
tho slaughter house, and yesterday a hide
was also found there which Mr. Schroeder
indentififtd as that of his cow. Tho case
will bo heard in Justico Robinson's court
to-day, and until then judgment should be
A rumor was brought into tho city
yosterday and the day beforo to the effect
that the burials of small
pox patients on graveyard ridgo were
being carelessly dono. It was asserted
that, as a rule, the coffins were intorred
but a foot or lessAinder tho surface of the
ground; that heavy rains had washed the
Boil from several of them, exposing them to
tho air and sun, and causing myriads of
green flies to gather around them. The
rumor is untruo in every particular. Tho
burial of all the city's smallpox dead has
been done under tho auspices of tho Sisters
of the Holy Cross, .nd has been done
well. Each coffin was placed not lees than
six feet under the ground and remains un
disturbed. Mayor Thistlewood and Chief
Myers, upon hearing tho rumor,' made a
trip out to the burying ground and found
all as stated above.
The souvenir which tho guests of tho
Army of the Tennesso carried away with
them from St. Louis, and of which Alder
man C. O. Patior, who was ono of tho guests,
has two, is in the shape ot a printed bill of
fare, very unique among such things. A
St. Louis paper says about thorn: "The
menu cards used com prised a cloverly
resigned and artistically-executed coun
terfeit of a Prussian drum, with raised
rim, snares and cords complete. Tho touch
of amotal key caused tho warlike drum to
gracefully spread open and discloso an
elaborate menu, tastefully presented on a
tablet; tho two drum -heads fell on either
side, and upon tho inner side of one stands
out in bold relief from a grouud of gold
canteen, upon which istaHtefully arranged
tho wino list; on tho other gracefully floats
tho national colors, supported by the
badges of the Thirteenth, Fourteenth, Fif
teenth and Seventeenth army corps, which
comprised tho 'Army of tho Tennessee,' and
beneath the colors tho words: 'Maintain
it I The wholo appearing in colors, am:
gold, ami silver."
Mr. W. M. Wright, general agent of
Andrew's Pearl Baking Powder, mauu'
factored at Chicago, was in tho city yester
day, in tho interest of his company.
Mr. M. Easterday returned Thursday
uight from a trjgO to Champaign and Chica
go. At tho former placo he attondod the
Sunday school convention, which wai com
prised of a large number of representatives
from all over tho statu.
Court convened yesterday morning at the
usual hour. Tho criminal docket had boon
cleared and it remained only for tho court
to sentence several prisoners who had be
foro beep found guilty by a jury.
Leo Smith, for burglarizing the commis
sion house of Mr. J. L. Aldon, was sen
tenced to four yoars in tho penitentiary;
Thomas Donnelly, for robbing a country
man of forty dollars, fivo years in the pen
itentiary. Samuel Josephs, for shooting at
a negro named Foggy, twenty days county
jail and twenty-five dollars fine.
Court will convone again this morning,
call over tho civil docket and try such cases
as do not requiro tho intervention of a jury.
THOUGHTS FROM CACHE.
This weather is a mixture of November
and April with no suspicion of balmy May
in it since last Monday morning. Sunday
was cloudy and cool closing with a sudden
rush of wind ami inky clouds which wero
watched anxiously till they moved away
to the east without doing nny harm and wo
remembered that this is not in tho storm
The next morning everything was en
traneiiigly beautiful. Only enough ram
had fallen to freshen up tho verdure; the
sliiuimering oak leaves, tho waving grass
and nodding flowers, sparkling with gems
of the purest water, the delicious air, laden
with redolence of the "angelsof the grass"
and vibrating with the songs of woodland
choristers all this was enough to inspire a
wooden uian to diwh off a pastoral. Look
in what direction ho might, out over the
fields of bright, crisp wheat, into the
orchard across tho way, or down into the
dark shady wood where tho cotswolds infant
ami Imby Jersys beguiled themselves,
he must have felt "as if it wero a new
and perfect world,"
Iu the evening all that was past, lambs
and calves bogged to be housed from the
impending rain, birds hushed their muBic
and rustled into the warmost nook on the
leeward side of the trees, and by nine
o'clock it began to thunder and lighten
ami rain as though it had to get through
with a wholo season's work that night. To
sleep was impossible. When daylight
came tho rain was seemingly incxhausta
ble, and from that time on to this, Friday
morning, wo havo been raiued upon daily
or uightly, with a falling thermometer.
Young stock aro humpod up like dromo-
iaries, two months old chickens aro shriv
eled to nothing but asthmatic heads and
bare trotters, and white flowers look as
though they wanted to come into tho fire.
Sheep shearing is over with and
the wool is, in perhaps every instance, on
its way to tho great factories, as ready
money is inoro desirablo this spring than
usual. Two weeks from now clover cutting
will begin and shortly afterward tho har
vesting of wheat, providing wo have warm,
bright days which accelerate the ripening
grain. Farmers wero cxpocting fine crops
tho coming soason,but are beginning to
feel uneasy about tho depredations of tho
army worm and cut worm, and yet do not
make much if any resistance. If they
would work systematically every field and
meadow could bo hemmed in by furrows
in width- tho invaders could bo crushed or
As corresponding secretary of tho Cache
Immigration Society, composed of one
member, it is my official duty to provent
tho publication of anything discouraging
to colonies or families designing to settlo
in our) midst, and I will here state that thcBO
above mentioned pests aro not local, and
that we aro exterminating tflera from the
gaftletis with Puris green and knives. Tho
powder s applied to the plants, tho knives
to the worms.
In the lower end of tho county, fruit
growers are jubilant over tho prices receiv
ed tor strawberries, and yet between the
shipments bemoan tho loss of apples and
a short crop of pears. With us apples are
plenty, pears peaches and plums are prom
ising and should bo of better quality by
reason of the less quantity, unless the pe
culiar bug will feel obliged to get in tho
customary amount of spring work not
withstanding. Strawberries and grapes do
well hero; also all other kinds of fruit and
vegetables grown for market. .
It is a mystery to mo why any man look
ing out a healthy location, favorable cli
mate for fruits, grass and cattle, .ind a
region positively and absolutely froo from
severe storms, should neglect us and go on
to Nebraska to bu eaten up by grasshop
pers, or to Kansas to bo parched, or to Da
kotali to bo frozen stiff, or across the conti
nent tf California, so far from homo ho
never can get back after ho has epent every
cent in vain attempts to cultivate tho grape,
olive, or eucalyptus.
Tho time for Sabbath School conventions
has arrived. Last Sunday ono wag hold at
Caledonia, where Mr. Wm Harman, a most
active worker in such matters, has a Sab
bath school. Owing to threatening clouds
thcro was not quite so large an attendance
as had been expected; but tho meeting

by Rod Silk Mixed Suit at 1512 50, worth $19.00. We do not sell iroods for less than cost

was interesting and full of life. The
church house, which trom,timo immemmor
ial has lookod as though it ought to be
long to a deserted village, has at last
received a coat of buff, with brown facings.
Last year it was furnished witli a bell and
now if tho citizons of tho burg could
muster sufficient energy to provide a few
interior decorations, such as white walls
and sound seats, tho handsome organ would
not look so lonely and out of placo.
Perhaps a stranger Bhoeld not havo al
lowed such thoughts to intermingle with
tho strains of sacrod music on that occa
sion, but we are naturally weak, you know
except when we are searching out oth
ers' faults. Candidly speaking, Caledonia
is too old a place and tho location is too
beautiful to have a positively shabby, caro
lcssly kept houso of worship in it, and I
folt glad when I saw that the outward ap
pearanco of that one was pleasing., It a
man is known by the company ho keeps,
may not a neighborhood be judged by its
