The Ag-ricnltnrat Condition at the Knl of
the Past Week.
The report of the Illinois depart
ment of agriculture at the end of the
past week is as follows:
The temperature of the past seven
days has been slightly below the nor
mal in the northern, "about the aver
age in the central, and slightly above
the average in the southern division.
The percentage of sunshine has been
about the normal throughout the
state. Rain occurred over the state
on the loth and lfith, and while quite
heavy in some localities, it was gen
erally light, some sections receiviii'r
none. In the northern division the
rainfall ranged from .00 to 2.00
inches: in the central, from .00 to
0.33 inches, and in the southern di
vision, from .0) to 1.15 inches.
The Ileeent K lins.
The rains of the past week were
not what was needed for corn, hut it
has been generally benelited bv the
same, especially is the case in the
northern division, where the heaviest
rams fell. It llie remainder of the
season is favorable, a fair corn crop
is expected, although some fields
have been injured beyond redemp
tion by drought. A few correspond
ents report grasshoppers as injuring
coin, out up to .late the iniurv is
not serious. Fall plowing for wheat
has begun, but it is greatly retarded
by the dry and hard condition of the
ground. Oats have all been threshed
or stacked, and give a fair viel.l.
Pastures have also been slightly ben
efited by the late rains, but more is
badlv needed. Threshing of grain
is still progressing, and is rapidly
Hearing completion. l-armors are
still feeding stock in some localities
Owing to drought, many farmers are
obliged to haul water for stock.
Apples are still rotting and falling
from the trees in many localities,
and will make a very light crop
The potato crop will be short. An-
trax has spread rapidly, being mosl
violent in Wayne. Clay, Edward;
and Hamilton counties, and it has
made its appearance in several ad
joining counties, its progress defy
ing the most strenuous efforts to
stamp it out. Horses, cattle, hog
and dogs that are affected, are dying
in large numoers. and several per
sons have suffered from the effects of
the disease, one having died.

. Yesterday's Itlaze.
The alarm of lire yesterday after
noon, about 4 o'clock, called the fire
department to the corner of Second
street and Fifth avenue, where a
barn in the rear of a house occupied
by Frank Helma, .505 Second street,
belonging to Warnoek & Ralston,
was burned. The lire department
responded in remarkably quick-time,
and but for the promptness, the
box factory of Warnoek & Ralston,
which was adjoining the barn, would
have burned. The lire entailed a
loss of about "flSO, which was not in
sured. The origin of the tire was a
small boy and some sulphured sticks,
so 'tis said.
All CnpleaHant K.xperleiiee.
Herman Hansen, Jr., of H35 Twenty-second
street, met with what might
have been a serious accident the other
evening. He was moulding bullets
for the small boys around the neigh

the contents of a ladel in a hole in the
ground, the bottom of which was
damp; the result was that the lead
ilew up in his face seyerely burning
his face and hands.
