The Kiiial Hillll tin of the Illinois Weather
The Illinois department of agricul
ture has issu d its tinal crop bullu
tin for the sen son, as follows:
The temperature of the past seven
days has be?n below the normal
throughout the northern and south
ern' divisions of the state. At ChiJ
cago t'.e daily deficiency was about
eight degrees: at Cairo, four degrees.
In the central division the tempera
ture was about the average. A kill
ing frost occurred over the state on
the morning of the 26th which did
considerable damage to tender vege
tation. Heavy rains occurred during
the week over the entire southern
and the extrerie western counties of
the northern md central divisions.
Elsewhere, while the amount of pre
cipitation was slightly below a sea
sonable amoui t, it was well distrib
uted. The ptrcentage of sunshine
was below a seasonable amouut.
The recent r:iins have been of great
benefit to meadows and pastures,
which are m w reported growing
nicely. In soire sections stock have
been turned oi.t. Stock water is now
abundant. The ground is generally
in excellent co alition for fall plow,
ing. and this work is being vigorous
ly pushed. Considerable seeding has
been accomplished, but this work has
been retarded somewhat ly the heavy
rains, partieutarly in the southern
division. In some sections seeding
has been finished. Some farmers
have delayed snving. owing to the
presence of grasshoppers. Grain
lately sown wiE also be greatly bene
fitted by the ra ns. The reports in
dicate that the yield of corn, except
in a few counties, will be greater
than was anticipated some weeks
ago. and the quality will also be
goo. I. This crop is now being cut,
and in some localities cribbed. It is

A Novel Ltiw Suit.
A novel suit is to be entered ia the
courts, at its neit sitting, in which one
party claims the right to have a post
mortem examination of a body made,
while the other oj poses it and defies the
first to proceed with the affair. It
seems that a few years ago a Mr. War
rington, a well to do cattleman of that
county, married a second wife, to whom
he presented the jewels, consisting of
valuable diamonds belonging to the
first Mrs. Warrington, and which ehe
had received as part of her marriage
portion from her lather, a wealthy mer
chant in jewelry i 1 San Francisco.
Warrington dying shortly after hit
second venture into matrimony, Mrs.
Warrington kept the diamonds in defi
ance of the family of her predecessor,
who claimed them as the deceased wom
an's heirs. Suit was brought against
her, but 6he declared that her husband
had sold them si ortly after they were
married and that the had no property to
to make goo-l the ' - - even if she were
liable for the act of Mr. Warrington.
This story was not believed by the
first Mrs. Warrington's family, who
maintained that the woman still had
them in her possession, and soon after
her death, which t ok place some weeks
ago, the nurse who attended her in her
las illness testified that the day she had
died she had her bring her a box filled
with unset gorus, which she deliberately
swallowed one by one, passing away
a few moments alter sho had got the
last one down. The family now wish to
disinter her body and to open it for the
recovery of the di imonds, but her own
people, not creditin g the nurse's story, re
fuse to allow what they consider a dese
cration of the dead. Lincoln (Neb.) Let
ter. FefTer'a Currency Scheme.
Brief mention has been made of Mr.
Peffer's latest bill, but brief mention can
hardly do justice to it.
Its title is "A bill to advance learning,
the arts and sciences and promote the
general welfare by founding a college of
scientific learning ia the District of Co
lombia." The bill consists of 19 sec
tions. The first provider for a department of
education under the control of a secre
tary of education. The second provides
for the constructioa within three years
in the District of Cjlumbia of a college
of scientific learnit g, in which shall be
taught all the clast ical and professional
studies and arts and sciences necessary
to give students i knowledge of the
highest courses apt ertaining to such ed
ucation and learning.
Another section i ppropriates $20,000,
000 for the cost of constructing the col
lege and providing .t with the necessary
appliances. The e ghth section appro
priates ?SOO,000,000 to be carried to the
credit of the fund, the interest thereof
to be applied monthly. The fourteenth
section provides f jr the purchase of
aluminium for coin.ige of the currency
to the amount of the appropriation.
The coins are to 1m 1, C, 10, 23 and 50
cents, and $1, $3, 10, 2()(and multiples
of $20). This currency is to be the legal
tender for all debts, public and private.
