WEEKLY CR0L' BULLETIN. Condition of the Small Creps Throughout Kentucky Up te Yesterday. The weather conditions during the past week ever the largest portion of the state have been favorable te growing crops. A geed many sections, however, send very encouraging reports and there are very few thnt send really dishearten ing ones, The only complaint iu regard te staple crops is lack of geed rains. The rainfall during the week was very unevenly distributed. In the Northern counties, except in the extreme Western and the Eastern parts of the state, there were geed rains. The counties of Han cock. Jeffersen, Oldham, Shelby Fayette, Kenten and ethers adjoining had tine rains en the 18th and 10th. Over most ether sectieus there was very little rain during the weeu. The temperature 1ms been slightly in excess of the normal, except in the Southwestern part of the state, where it was about normal. There has been no lack of sunshine. The dreuth that has prevailed in some sections has undoubtedly done great damages, still the geucral tone of the re ports Is equally as encouraging as that of the last week. A general rain would he almost sutli sutli cieut te insure a fair crop of corn, to te to bncce and hemp, except In u few sec tions where great damage has already re sulted from the dreuth. Repoitsen corn arccentlictlng. While the majority are faverable and fairly geed, a geed many ethers are very tils ceurnging. Especially is late planted corn in the dry sections suffering; and there will be a considerable shertage of this crop in these sectieus. Tobacco has net suffered te the extent that corn has; even In thesu counties where the dreuth is severest. A geed many lepnrts indicate an excellent crop, while n complaint Is an exception. Cut ting nnd housing Is In progress in some sections; nnd the largest part of the crop Is expected te he saved before frost. Pastures In the Central part of the state are bndly in need of rain.

Notwithstanding the fact that they have been handicapped in some anneving ways both days have been up te the high 'stand ard established by the Blue Ribbon Fair. The absurd roneit of diphtheria, which has been scattered bteadcast and exag gerated bj' croakers who have never been a success themselves and despise te see energy rewarded in ethers, has no doubt kept many ever-timid people away. Tlieic was a geed crowd en hand yes terday and a very spirited and interesting one. The show of stock in the arena was tine and the lacing, while net se speedy and close as en Tuesday, was geed enough te keep the boys guessing.

He hud been very attentive te a certain young lady, anil it is said she had tefiised his further visits. The never-ceasing warfare between the citizens of Covington and the street railway has broken out in a new direc tien. The company is attempting te lay a double track under a grant given twen- ty-soven years age, and the merchants along the street are opposing it. If the track Is laid it will probably' be tern up, and serious treuble may fellow.

That night the money was stolen, anil Turner missed his bride. Detectives were put te weik en the case, and a few days age Sheriff Jehn Catren of Knox county ar rested Joil Hendersen of Middlcsboreugh, charging him with getting the money. Hendersen Is a nephew of Turner, and has heretofore borne a geed character. He stoutly denies the charge, and says his undo has fallen out with him. and the whole thing is malicious and fnlse.

Bufpau), N. Y., Ang. 25. At raid night Wednesday night Mr. Sweeney, the head of the switchmen's order, offic ially recognized the fact that the strike movement ei switchmen, which was in augurated twelve days a$e in this city, had failed. In the official terms of tlla Order, the strike was "declared off." The men wle were formerly employed as switchmen in the railway yards bera will be notified by thelr local officials , thnt the purpofce for which they quit their employment has net been accetn- pllshcd, and thut they are new at lib erty te get back their places if they can. The beginning of the end of what was, until hist Sunday, an almost general btrike of the switchmen In the Buffalo railroad yards, wns marked by Mr. Sweeney's appeal te the heads of ether orders of railway werlcers te meet him in conference in this city. Mr. Sweeney was brought face te face with the fact that there wa no longer any strike of switchmen in the Buffalo yards. The evident feet that the companies had resumed the netural conduct of their business without the men who had left their employ with Mr. Sweeney's sanction pressed home te the grand master the conviction that bis local fel lowers had become no longer striking switchmen, but only idle men whose work is the throwing et switches, but whose positions had been forfeited without profit te themselves. Their leader was brought te sec by dally de- ' velepments in the yards that If his men were saved at all some power beyond his resources or theirs must be in veked. Mr. Swucney knew that his cause was lest. He turned, as a last resort, toward the ether organlatlens of railway workers, arid his invitations te Messrs. Sargent, Clark, Arthur, Wilkinson and Thursten were vislWe indications that the switchmen must confess defeat without fraternal aid. At a meeting of tle heads of the dif ferent roll-way organizations It was de cided net te order a sympathetic strike. They, however, expressed sympathy for the striking switchmen. Tl Weather.
