Crop Circular—Drought
x —Chinch Bug. .
Mr. George B. Chittenden, the enterpris
ing representative of the Wheeler & Wilson
Manufacturing Co., Chicago, has conferred a
substantial favor upon the public by Issuing
a full and voluminous Crop Circular, con
taining reports from nearly two hundred dif
ferent points In the States of Illinois, Wis
consin, lowa, Minnesota, Michigan and
Kortbern' Indiana, furnished by the
scents of the W. & W. MTg Co., from their
respective localities. These reports are most
of them made at the distinct periods, oncat
the close of the drought period, the supple
mentary one to cover the result of the rains,
and the subsequent ravages of the chinch
bug. Fom this circular which is thus a
diary of the c rop season, wc compile a por
tion of these later reports, showing as near
ly as may be, the present condition of the

we have bad a heavy rain* wetting the groand

hags Where “stubble*’ and com sUiks were
plowed under, and put in wheat, oats and com,

crops one-half more than oh clean land; in fact,
where there was no stubble or com stalks plowed

with wheat, having destroyed tbree-fourths of

a crop, leaving not mote than one-e.gbth of a crop '
in this county, and having killed the wheat are •
going into tbe cornfields and killing it clean as'
they go, having killed some strips around some
fields several rods wide already. Tbe bugs leave
the wheat as soon as it Is killed, and march off to .
. tbe nearest green field, whatever it may be, the
ground being sometimes literally covered wflh j
them, and wnoro there is a furrow or something j
to impede their progress, they can actually be
scraped up in bandfaiis. When their ravages will '
stop cannot now be determined but they have al
ready done so mnch that the damage to the corn
ciop will be material.

cent rains received. The lain came too late to
benefit spring wheat; the chinch bng had already
harvested It. Manv large fields have been totally
ruined by them. Where the wheat is harvested
they have attacked the corn: the lower half of the
stalk Is occasionally seen black with them, and
the leaves arc withering. Where I have observed
them they arc not scattered over the field, bnt are
sweeping clean in patches. Where the bug is not
found the corn looks remarkably well, and prom
ises more than usual crop. Potatoes, blackber
ries, grapes and gardens have been material!?
benefited by recent rains.

grams of all kinds Ins improved, but the chinch
bog is at work; many pieces of wheat arc already

Corn and oats look well. Winterwhcat badly in
jured by the bug. Spring-Avheat will be entirely
destroyed; many pieces are already. Outs, lair
crop. Corn looks well. Potatoes look well.
July 14.—Wc would add to our former remarks,
that the chinch bug will totally destroy some
pieces of wheat ana oats: and the recent rains
will help some pieces of wheat so as to field two
thhds of an average crop; The prospect Is not
fiattcring for any otJts.. Wc would also say that
barley Is not quite a total failure, bat very near it.

that bonkilng on the Wisconsin river. In this
section, but little winter wheat was sown, while In
the northern part of the county the entire crop is
w Inter wheat. Winter wheat, first rate, never bet
ter, more than nsoal. Spring wheat, very poor,
not one acre In ten worth cuttfha.. Oats, about
half crop, lar-f. R\e, good, email. Corn, good,
large, sorghum, about half crop, more than usual
amount sown Buckwheat, looks well. Potatoes,
look well. Vines and gardens, look. well. Fruit,
fair crop. Tobacco, looks well.
Ripon, Fond da Lac Co.. July 13.—Since our ■pre
vious report we’ve had glorious rains, and the ef
fect has been truly wonderful;, as near as wo can
judge, wheat will be about one-ball crop. Oats
: look lair; tblnktbey will average thirty baahela
per acre. Rycandoarley does not seem to come
oat as well as the other grains., . Never have seen
corn look better. Potatses, doing well. Flax, do
ing poorly; the straw very short. Not ifinch fruit
this season.
Sheboygan, July 13.—Since the last report we

my communication! of the 27th mu. we have bad
BCveral'copionß showers of rain, which greatly re.
•vised all kinds of vegetation. Wheat will proba
bly yield six bushels to the acre throughout the
county: this, together with the old wheal now on.
band, will supply the home demand, leaving but a
small amount, If any, to export. Of rye there will
be an average crop. Oats are light, at the present
Umg of writing. Potatoes and corn,' for flveyears,
never promised better.
Waukesha, Waukesha, Co., July 22.—Since my
last report, there have been fine rains, which have
been Of great service to the crops. The chinch
bugs have taken what was lett from tbedronght.
Tms connft will not raise sufficient to bread the
inhabitants.' A lew farmers have enough old wheat
for themselves and some to spare. Some farmers
predict the same fate for corn and oats as that of
thewheat. *
Watebtown, Jefferson Co., July 19.—Since my
report, June Ssth, we have had showers which

tei.sivelv planted, but It U very backward on ac
count of orvweather —cannot be more than two
thirds ol a crop, and if it don't rain before a great
, while, will be a decided failure. Yield in a good
season irom 10 10 25 pounds of oil per acre, which
is now worth from $4.00 to $3/ 0 per pound, I be
lieve. Winter wheat was badly winter-billed.
There was a good deal sown, and will perhaps
yield two-thirds the iunal crop. Spring waeat
not raised here. Oats not raised extensively, and
will be a failure od account of drought. Rye bus
veiy little sown. Com Is planted quite extensive

Buckwheat not sowedyet; won’t be ti'l it rains;

INDIANA.
Kosciusko Co., July 15.—The drought in this
region has been without a parallel. It began so
early lu the season that It will shorten nearly all
summer crops, and entirely ruin some. Oats, flax
and hay will perhaps suffer most. The corn which
was planted early on prairie or sandy soil, will
probably be an average crop, while that upon cuy
soil is almost a failure. Have bad a lew light
-showers within the la«t week or two. Winter
wheat, la good ; I think about an average crop.
Spring wheat is not grown in these* ports to any
extent. Oats, inmost J parts of the county a fail
ure, and, pastured or plowed under. Bye, la a good
average crop. Com, pretty good. Sorghum la not
to be seen—an entire filmre. Buckwheat, not
season yet, much will he sown If seed can bu had.

but looks well.

cept along the rivers, and the severe drought still
continues. Has been a little rain bat not enough
to wet tbegroaud. Hay is short and dear, and la
all tbo crop prospects arc poor In Allen county.
Winter wheat in this county is not a medium
crop, bat quality good. Spring wheat, none. Oats,
are almost or quite a failure. Rye is fully a medi
um crop. Com. looks badly, except oa the river
bottoms. Sorghum, none to be seen—a total fail
ure, I judge. Buckwheat, not season vet. Pota
toes afi very small and backward. Vines and
cardens, early gardens come in well, but are near

pears, peaches or plums. Tobacco, little to be

Diabetes, and Diseases ot
the Kidneys and Bladder.
Constitution Water
Ran beau procounced by the Kodleal ?acuity, and
the Public, to be the moat wou-icrfnl remedy tor tb«
permaneiit cure of all diseases of the Sto much. Liner*
Kidneys, Bladder and Womb, that haa ever beea
ottered.
It U not a Medical water. It is from experience
that CooaUtnUoa Water has emanated, ana we now
aay let no nupdoubt when a single bottle has bees *
known to cure diseases which the beat medical tsdeal
In this country has felled to relieve.
A remedy possessing the virtues of ConatttaOoft
Water cannot be ehused under ** quack” preparation
as It is now used by the most scientific practitioners lx
thin city. It Is only second class physicians that erf
down popular remedies, while the belter skilled msikd
use of every zneana to accomplish a cure rand the
success of the pOyalclaa Increases as his knowledge of
diifcreut remedies enables him to produce a core,
while others/hll in the attempt. Science iasatlsfisd
mlth the truth. ,
Give Constitution Water a fair trial—we mean yo«
who are under some specialist's care from year to
year, and we particularly allude to ladles who are
constantly resorting to local treatmoot and all sorts
of local applications for diseases, with as much chance
of success as there would be from local application
to the throat for diseases of the brain.
We have always been careful to use language In uur
circular that could not shock the most deucatoorgaai
•zallon, but wo receive so many communications from
persons for which Constitution Water la adapted, and
of whose disease no mention bus been made, that wo
have come to the conclusion that if the remedy is ea*
pable of producing a cure, no matter what the alseaao
may be, It should be made known. The medicine It
pat up for the public, and there should be no sxeep*
B * TVe*woul4 say. Constitution Warar la net like a glid
ed pill,made to suit the eye and taste; It Isamedt
clae in every.sense of the term, placed In the hands ot
the people fortnelr relief, andti taken according to
the directions, It will In every case produce a radical
cure. We would say that thtfXirecQona in regard to
diet, etc., relate only to the diverse under which the*
Mf-ir.
DIABETES
Is a disease of the Stcmach and Liver,
the Sidneys, and u, without doubt, tho moat obstinate
disease, excapiConsomption, that affects the human
constitution. Wo have nb space for discussing cause*,
but will state that the effect of the disease la the coiv
version of the starchy principle (or vegetable portion
of the food) Into sugar, which stimulates the kidney*
to au excessive secretion of water. Many persona
suffer from this disease who are Ignorant of It; than
Is, they p*wt large quantities during the day, and aro
'obliged to get up from one to fifteen or twenty tlmea
during the night, No notice Is-taken of Itunulthatr
attention la called t Vhe large discharge of water, and
often when it Is sowSadvanced os to be beyond tha
control of ordinary remedies. Another sympton la
the great thirst which* when tho disease Is fully estate
Ushetl.la Intolerable—tne patient drinks constantly*
without being satisfied; also dryness of the mouth*
cracking of the lips, a swoet bream, In the more ad
vanced cases, end finally loss of appetite, cm sc la tlon,
and the patient gradually sinks freon exhaustion.

say that it has cared every casein which it has been

IRRITATION OF THE WOMB, which physicians calk

and In use cases oot often, the doctor does not realty
know whether the symptoms are the disease, or the
