The Cora Id Saw Portion llpnrlited by
The weekly crop bulletin of the
Illinois weather service says:
In the northern diviion, where
rain fell, corn is reported benefitted,
and some improvement reported in
its condition. The drouth still con
tinues in many counties of this di
vision, although broken to some ex
tent in a few localities. The most
discouraging reports come from
Stephenson. Winnebago. McHenrr.
Ie Kalb, Kane. La Salle. Kendall.
Da Page and Cook counties. The
Wcniplcton. Winnebago county, cor
resjwedent says that unless rain
comes in a few days much corn will
be cut for fodder. In the other
counties, while there are many sec
tions where the drouth still contin
ues, and where the outlook is unfa
vorable, the rains of this and the pre
ceding week have greatly benefitted
corn, and the outlook at'the present
time, as indicated by the reports, is
more encouraging. On the bottoms
this crop is holding its own, and will
yield well generally. Chinch bugs
are doing damage in many localities.
Hail and high winds, which pre
vailed during the week, injured the
crop in some sections. Threshing
of oats and wheat is still progressing,
the weather being unusually favora
ble for this work. A decided im
provement is reported in the condi
tion of pastures where rain fell, but
where the drouth still continues they
are brown and I are.
Many farmers are still feeding
stock. Apples and iears are still
dropping from the trees. The fruit
crop will be light. Gardens have
also leen revived ami are improving
slowly. Potatoes will yield less than
was anticipated. Where the ground
is in good condition, plowing for
wheat is in progress. More rain is
needed, esjK-cially in the extreme
northern and southern counties.
"TOO RAPID"' MONEY MAKiNG.
The linpfrfert f,olfl Coin l-o&usr of XVIiich
a Triu Wh Imprifconfii.
That was an interesting and instruct
ive little paragraph in The Star which
told the story of a fo poldpiece, sns
pected of beiiip counterfeit, which was
scut to the director of the mint by a
-TM-cial inspector of customs at El Paso.
The piece was defective, and npou its
appearance a man was arrested at El
Pa.-o and charged with the circulation
of counterfeit coiu.
"Director Preston, " says The Star's
report, "observed that the coin lacked
souority, and from its general appear
ance susjiected that, owiiijr to too rapid
rolling of the gold Ktrips preparatory to
cutting the plaiichettes, an air babble or
blister was formed just at the s7x.1t in
tho strip from which the coin was cut. "
Very little investigation showed the
diagnosis of the director to be correct,
anditwastheu stated that "these blight
imperfections occur occasionally, espe
ciallv when the strips are rolled rap
idly." The explanation will doubtless be re
garded us p;rfectly satisfactory by
thoughtless folk and will be greeted
with delight by the unfortunate person
who has been held in custody at El
Paso, and who has suffered much indig
nity aud real injury liecause there was
carelessness in tho mawing of the coin.
The matter, however, is one of more
than little interest, for no one knows
whose turn it will next be to be arrested
on account of the overhaste or lack of
skill of a government employee in one
of the mints. Why should the rolling be
done "too rapidly?" Everybody knows
all about the extreme poverty of the gov
ernment, but tho republio is certainly
rich enough to make its money resem
ble so nearly a given standard that no
one will be jailed for attempting tp put
it to legitimate use. Washington Star.
