THE CROP FROSPECTS.
The Weekly ltnlletin of the Illinois Weath
er lio rean.
The Illinois weather service has
the following for the week ending
The temperature of the past seven
days has been m ch in excess of a
seasonable average throughout the
state. At Chicago the daily excess
was about seven degrees, Springfield
eight degrees, an 1 at Cairo nearly
five degrees. Ligl t frost was report
ed in the counties of Jo Daviess and
Du Page on the 17th. The amount
of sunshine was generally above the
average. The rainfall for the week
was, except in a fe.v localities, below
a seasonable amoi nt. and very un
evenly distributed, many of the ex
treme northern and western counties
reporting no rain.
Corn on bottom lands appears to
beholding its owr ; elsewhere there
has been no decide I improvement in
its condition. Tin high temperature
of the past week, has caused it to
mature fast, and considerable of it
is being cut and shocked. Except in
a few localities, tin yield will proba
bly range from one-half to two
thirds of an avenge crop. Crass
hoppers are Mill n ported damaging
the corn in many localities, it is
not generally conceded that this crop
is beyond injury from frost. The
rainfa'll of the Kuii. 11th and 12th,
appears to have been heavy over
many of the southern counties, and
generally well dis ributed, and the
reports indicate that it put the
ground in fairly good con
dition for plowing and seed
ing, and this work is being vig
orously pushed. In the other coun
ties of the state this work is progres
sing slowly, the rain being insufli
cient to put the ground in working
order. In the co inties where the
drought still preva.ls. this work is at
a standstill. The acreage sown will
be less than lat year." There has
been a marked imp-ovement reported
in i tie condition of meadows and
pastures in some of the southern
counties, but elsewhere t he condition
remains unchanged: a good soaking
rain is badly needi d for them. The
yield of potatoes wi.l lie less than was
The threadbare : sscrtion thot no

shows the progress of the financial
storm, and the wimcn, God bless
them, read the a lvertisements for
bargains, and woe to the merchant
who misrepresent.-. Idiotic at all
time, it is a suicidil blow. At such
tiriies as the presnt every cent is
weighed at its full value and every
real bargain is tak'n. Not a single
