was defeated In the Circuit
court and affirmed by the court of Appeals.
It was then taken to the State Supreme
court, and yesterday's decision, which Is
final, was tlie aatonisliinK result. On the
first count, the Judges held that Herman
niny be tatiirht In the public schools in the
absence of leirlslative pmbibition, as the
courts can not interfere with the course of
study. On the second count tbe judges
decide that nubile money can not lawfully
be used for tbe education of children lets
than tlx or over twenty years of ae. Tbe
effect will be to almost almllsh the Normal

The prospect la for a good crop from all
around. While the ground is In excellent
condition tnlendld weather has srevalled
for thlrtv days. Tbe Tribune has tecelved
reports from thirty-six polnte lu this Btat
Of tbe thirty-six nineteen report more
acreage of corn than last year, while only
one reDorts a smaller. Eleven say
that this year's corn orop will be
a stood one. while cnlv one promises
poor yield. Of tbe wheat orop only one
correspondent reports a smaller averuge,
two report a larger, while the rest are
silent, leaving the inference that the acre-
airn ia shniiL the same, although the In
creased acreage of corn leads to the belief
that In some places It Is taking tbe place of
wheat. Ten correspondents in this state
report the growing crop of wheat as good
ss that grow us at the sumo time last year
This would Indicate the crop to be fair, for,
as already stated, last yeur's yield was
exceptionally Urge. Seven points report
