THE GROWING GRAINS.
The Weekly lCrop Bulletin of the Illinois
The weather crop bulletin of the
Illinois weather service for the week
ending Monday sets forth:
The temperature of the past seven
days has been slightly above the nor
mal throughout the state. Generally
clear weather prevailed during the
week. On the oth inst.. badly dis
tributed shower? fell in the following
counties: La Salle, Henry, McDon
ongh, Winnebago antf Jo Daviess;
in the other counties there has been
an entire absence of precipitation
during the week. Hail also fell in
some sections on the 5th, but so far
as can be learned, did no damage to
the growing crops. The weather
conditions w hile favorable for farm
work, have injuriously affected all
torn, generally, is reported seri
ously damaged by the continued
drougth, many fields being perma
nently damaged, and many of our
correspondents are of the opinion
that it will not make over half a crop.
in some sections, however, where
planted in good, rich land and well
cultivated, it is holding its own. In
sects are reported injurying this crop
in many localities, and it is still fair
ing badly. Threshing of oats and
wheat still continues, but the yield
and quality is disappointing. Some
farmers, it is reported, are feeding
wheat to hogs, owing to the low price
offered. Owing to t lie dry, hard con
dition of the ground, plowing for
wheat is making but little progress
in the southern counties, Tastures
are drying up. and in many sections
farmers are feeding stock, the San
gamon county correspondents report
that the grasshoppers have seriously
injured young clover. Potatoes are
also badly injured by the drougth
ami insects, anil it is feared that the
crop wifl lie cut short. Many wells
are getting low and stock water is
very scarce in many sections. Grass
hoppers, it is reported, are injurying
young fruit trees in the vicinity of
Kaniscy, Favette county. Fruit of
till kinds will be scarce. There is no
improvement in the condition of
East evening at 10 o'clock two bug
gies dashed up Twentieth street at
breakneck speed. Evidently the ve
hicles were occupied by drunks and
they were racing. As they turned
the corner of Fourth avenue, Frank
Williams was unfastening his horse in
front of i. F. Knox's residence, and
before he could get out of the way
one of the buggies dashed into Mr.
Williams' cart, knocking down his
horse and himself. The horse, on
recovering his feet, started up
Fourth avenue, but was stopped at
the corner of Twenty-second street
by Thomas Tender. On examination
the horse was found to be injured
some, and Mr. Williams was also
hurt. Mr. Knox intends to find out
who the parties were and prosecute
What might have been a serious
accident was narrowly averted last
evening by lleury l-.hrhorn and lami-
ly. as well as Capt. IT. A. McDon
ald, ('apt McDonald was riding be
tween the st reet car tracks on Second
avenue, and at the corner of .Seven
teenth street Mr. Ehrhorn with his
horse and buggy, turned on Seven
teenth and in so doing left no chance
for Mr. McDonald to get out of the
way of a Tower car approaching.
Mr. Ehrhorn's carriage knocked Mr.
McDonald down, and then crossed
the track in front of the car. and but
for the promptness of the motornian
it is impossible to say just what
light have happened. As it was.
the car caught the hind wheels of the
buggy, and by-standers held their
breath in suspense, awaiting the con
sequences of the much complicated
RcckleHK, To Say the Least.
A short time ago there was a lot of
mysterious shoot iug about the Mil
waukee roundhouse in Davenport.
Thoshooter was at last run down,
and the whole affair proved to be a
good deal of the nature of a fake It
was morj an attempt to scare certain
persons than any serious attempt to
take life. The engineer on the 15.,
C. II. & S. in Davenport, however,
thinks the shooting meant business
in his case. A night or so ago he
was making a run into that city
when there was a small report and
something shattered the glass in the
engine's headlight. Later a much
llattened leaden bullet was found in
the headlight. It had been fired by
some person fond of amusement, per
haps at the engineer and perhaps at
the headlight. If it. was aimed at the
latter it was a good shot. i he po
lice have the bullet, but they are so
far unable to lay hands on the man
who let it loose.

Not all circus men are dishonest
A few days ago a Davenporter went
to Forepaugh's great show in Rock
Island. While there he lost his bank
book, good for its face at one of our
savings banks. He called at the bank
to stop payment on it and take such
other action as might be advised in
his ease. Yesterday- the missing
book w-as received bv mail. Manager
J. M. McCaddon accompanied it with
a letter, in which it was stated that
the book had been found under the
seats when the tent was moved that
night, and it was returned in the

CRAWFOFiD TO CONGRESS.
The Rock Iiand County Stateman'a Po-
, llttcat Aplration.
State Senator W. F. Crawford was
in town the other da-. He came in
ostensibly on business, but he di.d
not fail to sandwich in a little poli
tics wherever he could consistently
during his conversation. Naturally
the thread of argument turned on
the statesman's own future, his term
in the upper house of Illinois being
yraetically ended. The statesman
was of course indisposed to talk when
it came to reference to his own politi
cal future and when the question
was propounded as to the possibility
of his being a congressional candi

ing that to be a leading question.
"Crawford's a republican and a far

hen assured that there was ac
tually a prevailing impression among
some republicans that, he aspired to
congressional honors," he replied:
"Ah. now get along. Where's Gest
and Tost, and those fellows going to
be all this time. Hi. sides, it's a lit
tie previous to talk on such matters
and any way, it's a leading question
to askme where I stand, and who I
am for. As I said before, Crawford
is a republican and a farmer."
And looking wisely, the rural
statesman walked off. That he has
the congressional bee buzzing busily
in his head gear, there is no room for

where she is wasting her sweetness
on the prosaic business of towing or
rafting. The lioeckler is a good
boat without doubt, but the situa
tion was a little crowded here last
summer, with things as they are, for
another addition to the present list
The rafter "Iowa, whith has run
on the unner river for the past 30
years or more and which was owned
by the EeClaire Navigation company-
will be transferred lo other scenes.
She has been sold to M. S. Sivelv
who will utelize her on the lower
river. It is understood inai me con
sideration was $1,200. Mr. Sively
has just had built at the EeClaire
wavs another boat, which will bear
his name and be used as a packet on
the lower river. Some years ago he
bought a side-wheeler. Dick Clyde
and made a pretty penny operating
her as a tow-boat. He will doubtless
do the same with the Iowa, which
has been a river mark here but has
outlived its usefulness.
A Highway Flank.
Some time ago the Davenport Bus
iness Men's association appointed a
committee of its members to draft
matter for a plank in the county
platforms, so to speak, of both the
republicans and democrats in state
conventions assembled. This plank
related to the future policy of the
state of Iowa with relation to highway-
improvements. The committee
in question has linished its labors
and prepared the resolution, which
will be adopted, probably, by both
conventions. It is purely non-par
tisan, and as such may- be said to
have no place in a purely partisan
platform. The democratic conven
tion of last year took action almost
precisely similar to this, and there
is everv reason to believe that it will
do so again.
