The Missouri Republican remarks very
truthfully, "It is very pleasing to learn that
one branch of the Illinois legislature is at
ast ready to adjourn, but it would have
been infinitely more pleasing to have got
the news two months ago. If the members
had given the Saturdays and Mondays oi
the session to work and let politics alone,
they might very easily have been at their
homes a month or two ago."
The Metropolis Democrat should.fur-
nish the key to the following puzzle: "The

-For tho following Du Qu')in Tribune
is responsible : "A sensible young lady made
the following request to her friends: 'Do
not lay mo down by tho rippling brook's
side, lest babbling lovers wako mo from
my dreams, nor in tho beautiful cemeteries
in tho valleys, lest sight-seers, conning over
epitaph, distract mo; but let my u,t twp
bounder tho counter of tho merchant aud
tho business man generally, who never ad
vortisos. Thero is tho peaco which pussoth
all understanding, and a deep glucp on
which neither tho buoyurt football of
youth, nor tho weary shuflU and dug of
old ago, will ever iutrudo.' "
According to the report for May of the
state board of agricultural, concerning the
crops gonorally in tho Btato, the prospects
are as follow: "The largo area of winter
wheat destroyed by the Hessian fly Uit
fall, the severe winter and flood of this
spring In this state have largely reduced
the prospect for wheat and not more than
40 per cent, of tho previous crop is assured.
The per cent, of winter wheat area will be
seeded to other crops this spring is much
largor than expected, and the present con
dition' May 1st, gives encouragement for
only 20,874,097 bushels against 50,044,240
bushels a the result of the late harvest.
Tho following tabic are compiled from the
latest returns received at the Illinois de
partment of agricultural and represent the
condition in nearly 1,800 townships of the
Representatives of the JEtna and
American Central fire insurance companies
weroin the city yesterday, figuring up the
losses sustained by tho burning of the Bum
gard house and tho bouse ot Mrs. Walsh,
on Poplar street. The former was insured
for $400 in the JStna company, but the
money, if paid, or so much thereof as may
be paid, is claimed by parties holding
mortgages and other claims against the
Jenkinses, and this will complicate matters
a little. Mrs. Walsh's house was insured
for $500 in the American Central company.
The collections in this internal revenue
district, General W. C. Pavey collector, for
the month of April were as follows: dis
tilled spirits, $18,047.84; tobacco, snuff,
cigars, etc., $11,618.47; fermentod liquors,
$7,616.32; bank and bankers, $50.08; pen
alties, $199.21. Total, $38,123.02. The
continued unsettled state oi the tobacco
business in all its branches and the severe
check it received by the long suspense on
account of threatened legislature, and also
perhaps the reductions made by the new tar
iff, affect tho collections very materially; for
the above total is bat little over half what
the totals usually were before the change
in the tariff was attempted.
Mr. Montague, a prominent business
man of Charleston, Mo., was in the city
yesterday. He reports business very quiet
in Charleston, owing to the fact that farm
ers are all engaged with their crops. It is
his opinion that there will be a crop of fine
melons this year in Mississippi and Scott
counties, though not so large a
ono as the year before. The
reason why the crop will be smaller is that
the flood remained up too long to permit
putting fences and farms in order and
planting. Melons will begin coming in
much earlier than last year, Mr. M. thiuks,
aud they wilt therefore bo much better.

An attempt is about to bo made to
have tho man confined in the county
under a charge of an attempt to commit
rape, released under habeas corpus. Al
though the circumstances in genoral afford
a stroug presumption of guilt, there are
some who believe that he is the innocent
victim of malice. He. is certainly, in ap
pearance, manner and conversation, an ed
ucated gentleman. He speaks several
languages, is well versed in literature, a
fluent talker, claims to have been connect
ed with several large journals in different
parts of the county. His wife, who arrived
the day after his arrest, is evidently a lady
of refinement, and for both their sakes it is
to be hoped that the cloud under which the
husband rests may be dispelled before
Perhaps the Egyptian Press is right
when it says in reply to an item in The
Bulletin of a week ago: "All the pre
sumption indulged in that the negroes will
bolt their party in elections in tho near fu
ture is bosh, puro bosh. That they should
demand more recognition is apparent to all,
but a revolt of the negro voters need not be
feared by the Republicans or hoped for by
the Democrats. Negroes will go on voting
with the "grand old party." It is as natur
al for a negro to vote the Republican ticket
as it is for him to love a water melon. A
few hundred dollars distributed will "fix"
every disaffected one in a congressional dis
trict, and three appointments will harmon
ize ovory dissatifiod one in a whole state.
Tho Republican party has the money and
the appointments. When a negro threat
ens to "kick" all ho wants is money or an
office, and a palty sum or a petty position
satisfy him. The Democrat who expects a
nogro to bolt tho Republican party is badly
deluded. The negro will continue to vote
the Republican ticket."
That Paducah, like Cairo, has some
good dramatic talent was very manifest
from the performance by the Bullitt Light
Artillery dramatic society, at the Opera
House last night. The company was com
posed almost entirely of young poople, some
of whom had probably never stopped upon
astago before an enlightened audienco
previous to their connection with this coin

mostly strange to them. In this view the
piece was well rendered. Every thing

Concerning crop prospects for May in
this part of the statn the Illinois agricul
tural bureau says: "Tne most discouraging
prospects for winter wheat are reported
from the southern counties, whereabout 00
percent, of the lato winter wheat area was
seeded. The condition for this portion of
the state May 1st, 1883, was 65 per cent, of
an average, which is an increase of 4 per
cent, when compared with April 1, 1883.
The averago per cent, af are of winter
wheat killed or otherwise damaged to such
an extent as to make it advisable to seed the
land to other crops is 29 per cent, of the
late seeding, which would reduce the area
to 1,125,744 acres. The condition May 1st,
1883, of (15 per cent, promises an average
yield per acre of only 9 1-10 bushels. This
estimate is based upon the average yield
tor tho pat seven years in the southern
division of 14 bushels per acre. The out
look at present is not encouraging for umre
than 10,328,070 buthels in the southern
division." In Alexunder county the total
acreage of winter wheat is reported to le
10.088; number of acres killed Ify flood or
