From the lust report of the state board
of agriculture it appears that the estimated
increase of corn acreage .over 1883 is three
per cent., making the corn area a half mil
lion acreas. The condition indicates only a
medium yield, 10,875,000 bushels less than
tho crop of 1882. In tho northern counties
of the state tho percentage of the prospec
tive yield ranges from 70 to 03; in the cen
tral counties the percentage is placed at 80,
or somewhat better than last Botson; and in
southern Illinois the outlook is about the
same as last year. The wheat prospect is
discouraging, tho yield not promising
more than 10,000,000 bushels in the aggre
gate. Oats are in excellent condition, and
tho prospective yield is 100,000,000 bushok
Rye, flax and barley have fallen off ten
per cent, in acreage. There will be 10,000
acres of Irish potatoes. Severe frosts have
greatly injured the fruit crops, but apples
and peaches will bo a three-fourths crop,
pears, cherries and grapes two-thirds, and
strawberries and blackberries over three-
fourths of a full average
In a letter from Col. Charles Hamilton,
of tho St. Louis and Cairn road, to Civil En
gineer Thrupp, the Colonel cxprexsos him
self as highly pleased with tho survey and
plats made of tho company's contemplated
now right of-way, prepared by Mr. Thrupp.
The Colonel gives the reader of his letter to
understand that the company has positively
determined to lay its track on tho lino last
surveyed by Mr. Thrupp, excepting in bo
far as this lino turns to tho right in order
to reach tho embankment above the city
limits, thrown up by the company on tho
lino it originally intended to occupy con
trary to the wishes and interests of tho
city. Col. Hamilton says tbe company in
tends to abaudou this Una entirely and
come down Blong tho river bank. This, it
will 1)0 observed, is tbe very lino tho city
and the Trust Property company wanted tho
railroad company to occupy all along and
against which the latter has so long and so
obstinately contended. But it is not yet a
settled thing and there may be another
grand flop in one direction or another be
fore the matter is finally settled.

Officer McTigue picked up a white
stranger yesterday afternoon, who was just
drunk enough to be oblivious to what vas
going on around him and to be made the
easy victim of any designing thief. The
man was even then being led along by a
negro who would have been equal to mot t
any act of deviltry. The officer drove the
negro IF, and took the white man to police
headquarters where his money, amounting
to over 20,which he bad previously offered
voluntarily to the officer, was "put in the
chief's safe to be kept until the man should
have become sober enough to take care of
himself. Had it been night, the man
would certainly have wandered into one of
the delectable dens in "Pinch" and there,
while his "glims" wero "doused" in a
drunken sleep, his "boodle" would havo
been "pinched," and he would have came
forth swearing at everybody for not taking
care of him and his pocket-book while he
was "enjoying" himself.
Tho Argus is mistaken in its construc
tion of the new postal law. The law docs
not require the detention of mail at the of
fice where it is mailed until the "entire
1'ostaoe" shall have been paid, either by
tho sender or by the addressed. ThiB rule
holds good only with reference to mail
upon which less than one full rate, i. e. 3c,
has been paid, and which would, under the
old law, be sent to the dead letter office
without notice either to the sender or ad
dressee. Under the new law, instead of
Bunding such mail direct to the dead-letter
office, the postmaster is required to notify
the sender if his card appears upon the en
velope, or the addressee if such card does
not appear, that such letter or package is
"held for postage." But mail upon which
one full rate, that is 3c, has been paid,
even though six or nine cents would be re
quired to pay it through to its destination,
will be lorwarded just as now and held at
the office of its destination for tho amount
of postage still due just as now.
