The siate board of agriculture has ie
sued a bulletin fr:im the advance sheets
of the Illinois crop report for tbe month
of December to meet the demand on the
department from every portion of the
state for information as to the yield and
quality of the corn crop and the acreage
and condition of tbe wneat seeded for
harvest next summer.
In the northern divi ion the average
yield per acre is 38 bushels, as compared
with 25 bushels fjr last year; an in
crease of about 50 per cent in tbe yield
The corn area for the northern division
was 2 SI 2 600 "acres, making a total yield
of 106.877.000 bushels for tbe division.
Tbe quality is of a higher grade that last
year, as little or none of it was hurt by
In tbe central division tbe crop has
made tbe largest average yield per acre
with one exception; of any of the
past 10 years, the yield being 40 bushels.
as compared with 33 bushels of last sea
son, an increase of 25 per cent in tte
average yield per acre. The corn area
for this division was 2.133.511 acres, and
the total yield 85.341.640 bushels. The
quality is much better than an average for
a term of years, and the crop has been
gathered with great care and in fine con-dilion.
The southern division of the state suf
fered from a want of raia during the pe
riod when the grociog crop most needed
moisture, which had the effect to reduce
the jielii per acre, although the average,
29 bushels, is about 50 per cent better
than that of last season. Tbe corn ana
in this division whs Si S t. 00 acres aud the !
total yield 23.433,010 buthels. The
quality is about up to an average for this
Take the slate as a whole the area de-
voted to tbe corn crop was 5,754 000
acres at an averce yie'd of 37 5 bushels
per acre, which gives a total yield of 215,
895,600 bushels fcr the entire crop.
The average market price paid at the
local warehouses and the railway stations
of the slate is 33 cents per bushel, which
is 7 cents less than tbe average price paid
Tbe area seeded to winter wheat lhi
fall is 2 per cent larger than the area of
1891. In northern Illinois the 1893 area
is six points below that of 1831; in cen ¬
tral Illinois it is Tour points above, and
in the southern division of the slate s;v-
en points higher than last season.
There was a tendency to increase the
area of winter wheat quite materially this
fall, aDd caasiderable' ground was pre
pared for it, but it was so very dry that a
large portion of it was not seeded. The
drougth also militated against the growth
of theplaDt. much of that seeded failing
to germinate at all, while that that did
start is to weak that it is not in good
condition to stand a hard winter. The
November rains were very beneficial to
the growing plant and caused somsof the
seed which had lain in the ground for
weeks to sprout; but the stand as a whole
is very uneven, at d the outlook for a
wheat crop in Illioois in 1892 is not veiy
The reports of crop correspondents eUe
the condition of winter wheat in tte
northern division of the state as 80 per
cent of tte usual Dec. 1 average, and S2
percent in tbe central division, while in
the southern division, where the drouebt
was most severe, the condition is 26
points less than a reasonable average.
A few couDl'es report slight damage to
wheat by the Ilefsiao fly, v:z: RaEdnlph,
Jasper, Morgan1, Christian and Kn- x. but
tbe Sd jury done is so slight tba. it should
not be taken into account in estimatirg

Dr. Robert Nours, the great drmntic
orator, will deliver his oration on "Dr.

A comedy event is without a doubt tbe
appearance of Sol. mith Russell in his
great play "Peaceful Valley." Mr. Rus
sell is supported by a powerful company
of dramatic artists, and our citizens can
rest assured of a rich treat at the Burtis
in Davenport on Thursday evening, Sol
Smith Rufstll. What a wocderful fellow
is he to be sore! There is nobody like
biro Bobody whose personality is so
pleasing or hose acting is so thoroughly
delightful. But it isn't tcting, it is sim
ply Russell. He can't help being funny.
In bis nature there is a strange comming
ling of comedy and pathos; it is this m x
ture which puts it in bis power to carry
bis audience with bim always, to move
bis hearers to laughter or to tears. These
qualities apptal to every heart and we
love him for them. In "Peaceful VaN
ley" Mr. Rusiell has a play which will
give scope for bis peculiar talents. Tbe
plot is of absorbing interest.
