Justice such as will make human
ity ijuiver at the mere thought of re
sorting to such outrageous measures
should be meted out to Abram Whis
ler, the black-hearted destrover of
his little niece, according to whose
story reiterated in Magistrate
Schroeder's court yesterday after
noon he is. The child is a chubby-
faced, intelligent creature and told a
straightforward story of the decep
tion and cruelty she received at the
hands of her uncle and guardian, but
wben closelv pressed in the cross ex
amination of details, conducted by
Attornev Looney, the tears began to
flow from her pretty eyes as recol
lections of the shameful brutalities
were sought. It was a heartrending
scene, causing a temporary lull in
the court room. But the deep-dyed
old villain seated on the opposite side
of his sobbing, ipnocent victim, was
as cold and reserved as a stone. His
outward appearances do not conceal
bis inner villainy, lie is the picture
of a criminal dark, heavy eyebrows.

William, a few years elder and also
an inmate of the Davenport Orphans'
Asylum, corroborated his sister's
statement concerning the Watch
Tower outrage, when he was sent to
the Iun for some eatables, Whisler
objecting to his request that he be
accompanied by his sister. Whisler
made no attempt to contradict
the story by his own or any
one else s testimony, his coun
sel merely cross-examining the
little girl concerning the exact
time of the outrages. Magistrate
Schroeder bound Whisler over to the
grand jury under bonds of $1,000.

not less than one year in the peni

W. II. Truesdale, general manager.
and J. M. Johnson, general freight
agent ior ine uock island, accompa
nied by Superintendent Stillwell, of
the Iowa division, are making a tour
of the lines of the Rock Island in
Iowa, inspecting the corn prospects.
They went over the main line from
Rock Island to Des Moines, and also
made a loisurelv journey over the
lines to Iudianola and Wintersct.
Then they went to Atlantic and took
a panoramic view of the unsurpassed
corn and oat crops in middle western
rowa. many tields were seen in
which the corn was 14 feet high and
commencing to ear. In one field
visited, Mr. Truesdale savs, if the
stalks attain a greater growth than
their present height, the owner will
oe compelled to resort to stilts or
step-ladders to gather tho ripened
crop, while as for oats, he claimed
that they wcro so dense upon the
ground and the stalks so large that
iuey can oc narveateu only with axes.
As .for the immense yield of potatoes.
Mr. Truesdale is firmly of the belief
that nothing less than the general
use of dynamite in digging the
tubers will assure the successful har
vesting of tho crop. Putting aside
the general manager's levity, it can

we nave nad some enormous crons
in the past, but the largest of
all. that of 1891, it is claimed, will
be surpassed by the one now in the
field. That, at least, is the way
things look at present. Never be
fore in the history of the country has
mis cereal looked more promising in
July. Rain may beat whole fields of
it down. Floods and winds may do
a great ueai 01 damage in localities,
and chinch bugs may have reduced
the yield here and there. Drought,
also, may have effect, but making
due allowance for all probable losses
irom these and other causes we can
hardly fail to produce more corn
than we ever did before from a single
year s crop.
Mo More Kaln Needed.
If we do not have another drop of
rain this season the corn crop is
safe," said William Parks, who drove
into Rock Island from Edgington
this morning. "More rain will not
do any harm, if it continues to come
in moderate quantities, but as far as
drouth is concerned, the yellow grain
is out 01 danger, a t piendid crop is
assured. it win be abundant in
