Unfavorable Reports Hearty Threujrh

Memphis, Jely 7. The cotton crop
report fer theMemphis district embrac
ing West Tennessee, North Arkansas,
North Mississippi, and North Alabama
for the month of June, to be issued tt
morrow by Hill Fouutaine & Co.,
will say: "The weather during tke
month has in the main been unfavor
able. Excessive rains aud cool nights
were general up to the 15th, since
which time improvment is noted, es
pecially iu Arkansas, where dry
weather prevailed- The saate cun
not, however, be said of Mississippi
and Alabama. In these two States
the rain has coulijued, and both cot
ton aud corn have suffered from ex
cessive wet weuther. The condition
of the growing cotton crop is not the
most promising. The plain, is unu
sually small, backward for the season
and in fully half of the districts it
very small. Damage from lice is
also reported from Alabama. Blooms
are exceptional and are reported al
most exclusively from Arkansas.
This indicates that the crop is felly
three weeks late. Its future is de
pendent alone upon favorable weath
er and late frost.
The corn crop is not in a satisfac
tory cond.tion, owing to the lateness
of the season and the unfavorable
weather which has prevailed since
planting. The aggregate is 314 re
spouses. On weather 126 report the
weather during June as having been
favorable for cotton; 188 unfavorable,
owing to excessive rain; 96 report the
weather more favoraole than last
year, to ubout the same of 198 less

to my surprise) in about two weeks my mare
was entirely well of the lameness caused by a
bog spavin of over one year's standing and in
throe weeks time the swelling was all gone
and the mare is now entirely well and can trot
as glib as ever. I 0 insider the bottle of Ken

has given me great pain lor two or throe years.
I have only uppliud Kendall's Spavin Cure
four times and the corn now is nuariv out by
