THE CROPS FOR A WEEK.
The natural! Cenerally Sufficient for All
Edward A. I Seals, inspector for the
Illinois section of the Unite! States
department of agriculture, says con
cerning the week ending May
"Ihe week s rainfall was too heavy
over the northwest portion of the
state, and although below the average
in the southern and eastern counties,
was generally sullicient for crop needs.
The temperatures averaged about
normal, but the nights were too cool
for rapid corn growth and this crop
is coming up uneven, with stands
ranging from bad to excellent. Corn
anil broom corn planting are well ad
vanced, although much replanting of
corn has been necessary. A few com
plaints are heard of corn turning yel
low and of damage by cut worms.
Some little improvement is notetl in
the condition of early sown wheat,
while the late sown is doing as well.
Wheat is mostly headed, and a good
many correspondents report 'cheat'
plentiful. The Hessian lly damage is
decreasing, as only 12 counties now
report this pest, as against 20 a week
ago. Oats, pastures, grasses, gar
dens and potatoes are doing well.
Potato bugs were pretty generally all
killed by the severe winter. Clover
cutting has begun. Cherries are le
ginning to ripen and a fair crop of ex
cellent strawberries is being mar
keted. The fruit oulook generally, is
only fair, as many fruit trees and
bushes in the northern and central
parts of the state were winter killed."

George B. Henry's since he was taken
from this county to t he west a little
over a year ago to pay the peually for
numerous forgeries committed in var
ious parts of the county. Hcnrv.
whose home was at Hampton, it will
he remembered, was convicted of the
lirst of forgeries preferred against
hiiu, which happened in the state of
Nebraska, and lie was accordingly
sent to the penitentiary in that slate.
I'nder close continement his health
has given away, and Tecently the
governor pardoned him, owing to the
shattered condition of his health.
Itearrmtcil at the Portal.
At the door of the penitentiary,
when the tirst gleam of lilierty caught
his eye, he was con fronted by Pinker
ton detectives and promptly rear
rested and taken to Denver to answer
similar charges to those from which
he had sutTered in Nebraska, and he
is now coulined in the Mountain city
awaiting trial there. The best of in
formation that conies, though, is that
his innocence may readily be estab
lished of the charges, and that he will
then be given his liberty. Resides, it
is understood that the governor of
Nebraska had an understanding with
the executives of other states in which
Henry is wanted that in the event of
his pardoning him in order to save
his life, the other states would not
reincarcerate him. as if ho was to be
returned to coniinement in another
stite as soon as he got out of one. he
might as well continue in the Ne
braska penal institution. In view
of these representations, Henry is ex
pected home soon to spend the re
mainder of his days.
