destroying their loved ones, by forcing opium,
morphine, soothing syrup and other hurtful

A bulletin from the Illinois department
of agriculture says: Corn has been slightly
injured by the continued drouth in most of
the counties reporting, although in a few
counties where rain fell, it is reported as
progressing nicely. Scott county reports
corn greatly Injured by drouth, some
fields, caused by clinch bugs and lack of
rain, while Pike county, adjoining on the
west, reports plenty of corn in good con
dition, owing to a good shower. At the
present time, early corn is in better con
dition than late, the future prospect for
the latter depending upon the amount ot
rain and the time of frost.
Wheat threshing is well advanced, ow
ing to the favorable weather conditions
of the past week. A few counties report
threshing about finished . On an average
the yield will be light. Henry county re
ports wheat as yielding from 10 to 18
bushels per acre; Douglas county, 20 to
80 bushels; Mason county, about 18
bushels. No fall wheat sown yet.
Oats threshing is progressing rapidly,
being favored with good weather. Most
of the correspondents reporting in regard
to oats say the yield is light and of poor
quality. Jo Daviess county reports oats
as making from 25 to 85 bushels per
acre, McHenry county 20 to 25 bushels,
Henry county two-thirds of a crop; Mor
gan county half a crop, Douglas county
SO to 50 bushels, Fulton co unty oats
light in yield and quality.
Fall plowing has been commenced gen
erally, but is retarded somewhat by the
dry condition of the ground.
Potatoes are mostly reported as being
a small crop and needing rain.
Fruit will be very light in yield. This
seems to be an off year for fruit of all

The Prehensile Foot' of Hast Indians.
The traveler who walks in the native
quarters of the cities of India can easily
Btudy there all industries in their begin
nings, as they were probably practiced In
Europe in the Middle Ages. The shops are
usually open and the workmen can be seen
inside. Textile industries, pottery, shoe
making, joinering, armoring, jewelry, con
fectioners all can be observed in a single
street like Chitpore street, Calcutta.
If we take pains to examine attentively
the methods of working, we shall be
struck by the enormous function played
by the lower limb. Whatever the indus
tries, the Indian, squatting or sitting oa
the ground, works with his feet as well as
with hands, and it might be said that all
four of his limbs are in constant exercise.
The joiner, for example, has no assistant
to hold his plank, but makes his great toe
serve that purpose.
The shoemaker does not employ a fixed
clamp for the shoe on which he is sewing,
but holds it in his feet, which change po
sition to suit his convenience, while his
nimble hands do the sewing. The metal
worker holds the joint of his shears on hU
feet In cutting copper. F. Itegnault in

Cat LcDdi and Superstition.
In Arabian legends the cat is traced back
as far as Noah and the ark. It is one of
the animals that came off the ark, but did
not go on. When the other creatures en
tered for safety during the time when "the
doors of heavsn were to be opened and the
fountains of the deep turned loose," there
was no cat among them. Puss' origin is
accounted for In this way:
During the time the ark was floating
about over the tall mountains, mice and
rats became an intolerable nuisance to the
people on the great vessel, and they com
plained to Noah that everything was be
ing literally devoured by the pesky ver
min. That august personage forthwith
called the male lion to his side and began
to stroke his back, whereupon the great
beast sneezed and, lot a full sized cat w;ia
blown from his nostrils! St. Louis Re
