Grandmother Argus' "informant waB

There was uo discussion at all upon this

the ice cream parlors of Mr. Phil H. Baup,
sod after partaking liberally ot tha finely
flavored, delicious, cooling cream, tbey en
tered into a criticism therool and tho gen
eral verdict was that, though they had
traveled much in all pnrts of tho country
and samplud the croam of every climo
made by acknowledged experts at tho art,
they thought that Cairo beat them all in
the manufacture of ice cream. It
Yesterday morning when Prof. Floyd,
teacher of tho private school, on Walnut
street, stepped behind his desk his eyes
fell suddenly upon a new, finely carved
silver watch with suitable appendages. No
ono knew where it canio from, nothing told
who the donors were ami he took possession
of it with a feeling of pride, and thankful
ness for tho kind unknown. Ho has his
suspicions, but prefers not to ventilate them.
Tho watch is a very handsome one, with
tho celebrated "Waltham" works.

While tho steamer City of Biton
Rouge was on her way down from St. Louis
Friday, a negro deck hand attempted to rob
a deck passenger who was lying in his
bunk asleep. The passenger awoke before
the negro had finished his search and re
sisted, when the negro drew a rB.or, and
cut the man's throat. The wounded man
was Mot discovered until after tho boat had
made its next landing, when the negro es
caped. When discovered the wounded man
was still alive, but bleeding profusely. I lis
wound was uot deep, and not fatal. He

The condition of the rrps in win f
try aa reported to the Illinois Dprtrn:nt
of Agriculture is as follows: The pt
month has been cold and stormy and the
unseasonable weather has caused much anx
iety in the minds of farmers as to the pros
pects for corn and other crops. The force
of men and teams in this statu with the im
proved check row planters can easily plant
half a million of acres of corn per day ami
with ono week of good weather Illinois will
have a creditable cum area planted. The
corn area is uot as largo as last year and
the condition is not up to au average. The
insects havo Bcriously injured corn. The
army-worm has in some localities ncccH
itated much replanting. Chinch-bugs
threaten much damage to corn. Sorghum
cane is up to an average in condition and
the area ia as large as in 1881. Winter
wheat is above an average iu condition.
The army-worm has stripped some fields of
bladeB and they aro now at work on tho
heads. Outs are up to an averago in condi tion
and rye promises inoro than an averago
yield per acre. The urea of tobacco is much
larger than last year ami the condition
promises more than an average yield per
aero. Meadows and pastures have been
greatly damaged by army-worm. The urea
is about tliu samo as last year. Isish pota
toes are above an average in condition.
Tho urea in not quite as largo as in 1881.
Moro sweet potatoes planted than last year
and tho prospects are good for about an
averago yield per acre, There was inoro than
an averago bloom of apples, peaches, pears,
plums, Strawberries, raspberries, blackber
ries anil gooseberries. An average bloom
of cherries, grapes, and currants. Piospccts
are encouraging for more than an averago
crop of apples, peaches, pears, plums, black

THE REEVE CASE.

The witnesses in the caso wero the defen
dant and his sou on the ono aside, ami Chos.
Pete, Jme Howard aud young Vaudevort
on the other.
Mr. Reeve and his sou testified to the
facts substantially as The Bulutin stated
them yesterday morning. Vandevoit cumo
to the saloon, settled up, received his re
ceipt, then called Mr. Reevo a "d d dirty
sneak" and made a motion to draw a weapon
from his rear pocket, ami was then Btruck
lown by Mr. Reevo. This testimony was
corroborated iu every particular by James
Howard, ono of tho witnesses for tho pros
edition, who had seen and heard all that
wus done and said.
Charles Pete, tho remaining
witness tor tho prosecution,
testified that Vaudevort did not
make any suspicious motion, but that ho
used tho languago attributed to him and
was looking at his receipt when Reeve
struck him. The defendant himself did
not tell a straight Btory at all probably be
cause ho had not quite recovered from tho
effects of tho blow.
