The Illinois crop bulletin for the
week ending Aug. 16, is appended in
The temperature of the past seven
days has been about the normal in
the northern snd central, and slight
ly above the average in the southern
counties. The percentage of sun
shine has beei about the normal.
Haiti occurred over the state on the
loth and 11th, and while quite heavy
in some localities, was generally
badly distributed, many sections re
ceiving none. In the northern di
vision, the rai if all ranged from .00
toO.Nl inches; in the central divis
ion, from a trace to 0.75 inches, and
in the southern division, from .00 to
29 inches. Where rain fell corn
has been somewhat benefited, and
some correspondents are of the opin
ion, that while it has been greatly
injured by t ic drouth, reasonable
rains from this on and a favorable
fall will give a good yield yet. In
some sections, many lields are re
ported injured beyond redemption.
in the vicinity of Home, Peoria coun
ty, it is reported that a large per
centage of corn stalks have not a
emblance of a i car, and the largest
corn in some fields is little more in
size than the nubbins of favorable
seasons. Pastures have also been
slightly benefited by the late rains,
but owing to the hard condition of
the ground more is badly needed.
Threshing of grain is still progress
ing, ana in many sections has been
finished. Earners are still feeding
stock in many localities. Grasshop
pers are seriously injuring vegeta
tion throughout the state. In Sang
amon. Boone, Scott, Morgan, Macou
pin, Montgon erv and Champaign
counties, they liave seriously injured
young clover. Uwing to drought.
many farmers are oblighcd to haul
water for stock. Apples are still
falling from the trees in many local
ities. Potatoes will be a short crop.
The Barnhill, Wayne county, corres
pondents says: Anthrax is raging
here and has killed many cattle,
horses and hogs."
The Iowa en p report states that
showers have 1 ecu abundant in sonic
sections of the state and deficient in
others. In the greater part of the
state there is a promise of an aver
age crop of corn. The damage" to
the potato crop is nominal. The
threshing yield of oats is 50 to CO
per acre average; wheat 11 bushels
to the acre, much of it of light
weight; winter wheat, 235,000 acres,
average yield 14 bushels, quality
good. The toial wheat product is
estimated at 2:4,355 bushe4s.

Officer Kyan arrested John Hanson
last night for carrying concealed
weapons. He was armed with a 38
calibre revolver with every chamber
loaded, and had in his possession
also a tallow candle suspicious look
ing implements of trade. He is de
tained at police headquarters.
Officer Kyan had an interview with
a strange appearing individual on
Third avenue this morning whose
chief difficulty seemed to be in get
ting along under the influence of
hops in their various stages, and he
was so laden down with a cargo of
bread that he couldn't hop worth a
cent after all. The officer helped
him on his way.
The telephone system in connec
tion with the fire and police alarm
boxes is now complete, and the ordi
nary telephone was removed from
police headquarters this morning.
There is no change in the general
way of calling the station, however
you get it through the central
office as heretofore, but there is the
additional advantage to the depart
ment of having the private arrange
ment of its own. which, by the way,
fist: in? on the raeific Coast.
Tl oldest industry of the Atlantic
roast, the fisheries, is the newest indus
try of ti e Pacific. Until a few years
a;o the fishermen on the northern coasts
of Cahfoiu'!:i paid no attention to the
vast quantities of sturgeon, ami halibut
there, resjarlis them as worthless, and
it is only within two or three years that
the majority of places further north and
down the southern coast now making
money i:i fish have paid any attention
whatever to the industry.
Last year 0.000.1)00 jiounds of sturgeon
were taken from the Columbia rivtr and
shipped east, and altogether 100 or so
carloads of this one kind of fish went
east from that region. In the last year
or two there have been large discoveries
of halibut in Alaskan and other north
ern waters, and salmon are petting
more plentiful in the streams of that re
journ. Los Angeles and other southern
California points have within a year or
so become great shippers of fish to the
east, barriendas and yellow tails being
tho chief varieties.
