The following is a summary or the condition of Winter wheat Just issued lrom the Agricultural De partment:? On the first week of April a considerable portion of the Northern belt of the Winter wheat area was covered with snow. The condition of that which was visible gave promise of general exemption from Winter injury, leaving the crop subject to the meteorological vicissitudes or April. In the Middle States a great improvement upon the showing or last Spring is everywhere couceded, especially in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The prospect in the States south or Maryland Is less ravorable than last year, and there arc Indica tions of diminishing area in the cotton States, al though acreage is not Intended to be given in this report. Michigan, the only state ot the Northern border In which Winter wheat is mainly grown, presents green and vigorous growth wherever the snow has disappeared to reveal it, and Ohio makes far more ravorable returns than last year. In Kentucky a more checkered showing Is made, giving the present appearanco a decidedly uulavor ablo cast, with Indications or luturo improvement as the weather becomes settled. In Iudiaua and Illinois the unfavorable returns outnumbered the rose- colored. The dry Autumn retarded seeding and germinating, and left the plants too weak and shallow-rooted to endure well the effects of winter's changes of temperature. Similar causes affect the condition of wheat In Missouri, but a great improvement over last year Is reported, and a still more ravorable condition exists in Kansas. lu Wisconsin, Minnesota. Iowa and Nebraska, as is knou*r. very little Winter wheat is produced, but lull reoorts are given or ouch experiments. The indications from California all point to another year or great abundance, scarcely a county reportinK an unfavorable con dition. As a whole, the wheat prospect at the close of this W'.ntor is more Uvcuablo than at the muuo date iu TIE BAIK OF EIGLAID FORGERIES. ? ? i .1 Herald Special Report from Havana.

In two years they left. My hoise was much damaged ; the children had broken the slats olT tie shutters and many oi the panes out oi the windows, cut and scratched the banisters, chopped three or four holes throngh the basement fleer and dropped stones and flat irons In tho water closets. The walls were all marked and scratched, with many nalla lelt tn as an evidence of tho children's mechanical skill.

I'eoplo who canuot bay houses and cannot control their children eught not to have them. As it is, children are our masters, and every day thoy grow more tyrannical. The Methodist minister was properly punished for his .large family. With his small prospects and small salary he had no business to have so large a family. T look upon a poor man with a largo family as uo more deserving consideration than a drunkard, a glutton or a gambler.

In the struggle for existence they will go uowu, whilo tho chaste, continent and provi dent will rise up and enjoy the good things of this life.

The children are not made to mind, but have there own way, they can destroy everything, no matter what; now; the children, are not to blame, it is the parents ? especially the mother, she has t he training ol them while young, and break there laults, while they are young, and teach them what is right now untel we have the old rashloned mothers, we cannot expect to have well trained children? for that reason? wo do not care to have them around us, by inserting this yon will oblige an old fashioned MOTHER. "ON THE GROUND OP SRLF-DEFENCE." A correspondent who signs himself or herself "P. W." sides with the landlords in opposition to tho average "family with children." He or she is "superstitious" ift?out children ; but, well, let him or her explain : ? To the Editor op tiir Herald:? To me a pleasant cnild is the moHt attractive thing in this world. 1 am "superstitious" in regard to them. I reel It in better to have them in iho house, for "their angels do ever stand before our Father's face." I am not a landlord, never was, nor have I very sanguine exncctatlons of ever being one. Nevertheless, with all my love of children and my laint hopes of becoming a land lord, 1 declare that If I was the possessor of a de cent habitation 1 should consider myself justified, on the simple ground or self-defence, to deny its use to the average "family with children." It is needless to pile up the 10,000 ex asperating reasons that can be given by all landlords, and their tenants, who pay their money to live In peace, why children are objected to. Those who complain the loudest do not need any information on that head, as is proven by a tact, well known? that whenever they become landlords they ure the most inexorable against the admission of children. They know, you know. Scratched and bedaubed walls and banisters; "jumping the rope" over your head; the halls turned into a stamping ground and raceway lor half the children In the neighborhood; "mind your own business'' to the most gentle protest? these things, ami many more, "too numerous to mention," ougst to tend toward solving the problem, "What are we to do with our children?"

My husband Is employed at a fair salary, ir his wages have not ! increased as fast as nls lamlly I do not think It Is 1 his lault; but he earns now more than he did when we were ilrst married, twelve years ago. I bother you with these things so as you can understand iuv position. The rooms wo have occuplei' for the last Ave years have been growing too small for us, and we have olteu thought of shifting, bat dislike change. This year the land lord gave us notice that ue would raise the rent $5. This we could not well afford, but if we nad to pinch ourselves to pay It we thought we might .u I well try to be better suited. First we appealed to I the landlord against the rise, but lie said he I guessed we couldn't afford it when he made It, and the fact was we had too many children, and he didn't want us anyhow. My husband and I never felt ashamed in our lives before. 1 had a good cry when I went homo again, and then 1 went house hunting. Roughness and rudeness and reproaches met me everywhere. It was God's will, I'm sure, i that, 1 have had so many children, ami we read heaps about how good "olive branches" ure in the eyes ol the Lord. I am not a dis grace to anybody. My home and children 1 are clean aud decent, and God knows I wouldn't part with one of them for nil the ; wealth of Stewart's store. I have been out every day lor the last ten days three and lour hours a , day. and have done my housework as well, and haven't got a place yet. "Seven children t Seven children !" is what they all cry, and say, "No ma'am." I don't think it Is right to i>e brutal In this wuv.
