In his "Outline of Political History"
Professor Guldwiu Smith attempts to re
vise our accepted estimates of Washing
ton, Jefferson, Webster. Clay and other
great Americans, and to rearrange the
status cf those characters in the annals
of RtaUxrafc war, and politics. In this
task, vl:ch he clearly finds more con
genial in purpose than easy of execution
he is less instructive than entertaining,
and vastly more ambitions than effective.
It need not disturb our admiration for
Gold win Smith to discover that he re
fuses to place Wasldngton among the
great generals of history. Our British
brethren have always stuck to that no
tion and are entitled to all the comfort
they can get out of it. Nor need we dis
tress ourselves that ho regards Jefferson
as a man who might have developed into
an anarchist if the temptation had pre
sented itself. That is merely an assump
tion which pleases Mr. Smith without
any impairment of Jefferson's historical
This author's estimate of Hamilton,
whom he regurds as 4-a born aristocrat,"
of Aaron Burr, "a locul Catiline," of
Madison's "prim mediocrity" and Clay's
"jingoism," are interesting and some
times amusing. We know Goldwin
Smith too well to take him as seriously
as he takes himself.
One striking thing about this work
seems to be that the history it contains
is not new and that its new things are
not history. New York Herald.
The Agricultural Conditions at the Knd of
The Illinois weather service report
for the week ending Sept. 23, is as
The temperature of the pat week
has been much in excess of a season
able average throughout the state.
At Chicago the daily excess was five
degrees; at Springfield, three de
grees, and at Cairo, six degrees.
Light frosts occurred in some of the
extreme northern counties, on the
24th and 25th. The percentage of
sunshine was below the average.
The rainfall has been generally in ex
cess of a seasonable amount. It was
well distributed, and was unusually
heavy in many of the northern and
The continued high temperature
of the week just past, has matured
corn rapidly, and all of it is practic
ally beyond in jury from frost. Cut
ting is in progress, and in some sec
tions has been finished. Some cor
respondents say that it will yield
better than was expected. In the
vicinity of Kirkwomi, Warren coun
ty, it is reported that the corn crop
has been somewhat injured by the
drought, but not to the extent re
ported from some places, and it will
be very little, if any, short of last
year's crop, and promises to be of
good quality. Some fields of corn
were prostrated by the high winds of
the L'nth and 24th". The rains have
put the ground in good condition for
plowing and fall seeding, and this
work is now being pushed. In many
parts of the central and southern
counties, considerable -ceding has
been done, and some of the wheat
and rye is already up and looking
well. Pastures and meadows have
also been greatly revived, and they
