The reports on the wheat crop are not very satisfactory. The threshing last week indicates a much less yield than anticipated. Some fields have threshed out 20 to 25 bushels per acre. The berry is small and unfortunately more or less smut appears which dam ages wheat very materially and es pacially if in the grain. From what we can learn the market is- unsettled and probably will start at CO to 05e. We understand several sales have been made at these figures. Some four or five cars shipped last week and should the weather be favorable for threshing this week there will ba several thous and bushels shipped. A Had Cans, Uhrough the vigilance of officers in Garrard and surrounding counties, the breaking tip of the notorious Gill and Story gang has about been accomplish ed. For several years the residents along Sugar Creek and vicinity have been geatly annoyed by thieves.

Officers from Madison have landed in the Richmond jail George Story, Jim and Bill GilL all white men living in the above mentioned neighborhood. One of these men gava the whole thing away and told of their many deireda tions. Story's wife had Gill's wife ar rested and she in turn had the Story woman landed behind the. bars. Toll Gill has also had the chain of epiden-.-e wound around him and now ornaments a cell in the Garrard jaiL The case against the latter vill be called before Judge Burnside this, Fridas, .morning.

Serg'L Will Walker, Ned Burdett and Kirk Kerby came up from Chicka- mauga Tuesday. Walker and Burdatt are on a few d lys furlough, and Kerby will remain. The latter had charge of several teams, and, as the company has been recruited to its full strength. (103) his services were no longer need- d. Bunlett is regimental blacksmith. a position which is quite responsible, but which puts many of Uncle Sam's dollars in Ned's pocket. Will Walker was made third Sergeant His appoint ment was a pood one, as Will is as straight asfl. die and as c'.ever a fellow as one ever meets with. Uhey say the boys are getting along nicely, and are as happy as larks. They do not know when they will be ordered from the present camping ground, nor do they have any idea where they will be sent. Burdett and Walker will return to Chickainauga in a few days. Death of Mrs. Ileriidon. After months of untold suffering from a complication of throat and lung diseases, Mrs. Helen K. Ilerndon, wife of Capt. William Ilerndon, died in this city Sunday morning at S o'ctock. Mrs. Ilerndon had been in bad health for many years and for several months was usufast. bhe was the oldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. H. Kinnaird. The life o: Mrs. Ilerndon was surely a pure one. She was a zealous christian and the most loving and devoted mother we" ever knew. She had such deep love for her family that when she was suffering the great est pain she asked them to remain out of sight, that they may not sulfur by seeing her suff jr. A short time before her death she called each of her chil dren in and admonished them to put their trust in God, live a Uhrist-like life and "they would surely meet her in a place where they would be forev er united. Mrs. Ilerndon was a mem ber of the Presbyterian church and was brought up to study the bible and practice it's teachings. The early training given by her pious mother never left her, and she went through life a God-loving and God-fearing christian. The husband and children have the sympathy of all the commu nity in their great bereavement. They should remember that their loss is her gain, as she is, according to the teachings of the bible, now where no suffering is known and where she will peacefully await the sounding of the trump which will ushor in the glad rcserrection morn.

Will be in 1st Arkansas volunteers, but will try and get transferred to our home regiment. I very naturally want to be with the Kentucky boys, but if disap pointed, can tight for the old flag as well in another regiment. Give my kindest regards to all inquring friends and if I never get back to old Kentucky tell Capt. White to feed the .Luclen Young to the Front. Lieut Lucien Young, whose mother lived in Lancaster for many years and is himself well-known here, has niled up more honors by his bravery. The gallant lieutenant commands a little boat named the "Hist." He was sent, with several other small crafts, by Admiral Sampson, to Manganillo, to destroy four Spanish gunboats which the Admiral had been informed were lying in that harbor. Instead of find ing only that array of fighting craft, they encountered, in cresent forma tion, nine vessels, including a torpsdc boat and a cruiser. Th.ey also found themselves flanked-by land batteries and armed pontoons, while a heavy battery of field artillery was in posi tion on the water front to aid in mak ing warm the reception of Sampson's vessels. The American's pitched in anyway. The Hist was hit 11 times, but the plucky little craft withstood the heavy fire gallantly. During the engagement the American vessels suc ceeded in sinking two of the Spanish irunboats. one sloop and one pontoon. T.iey also disabled the enemy's torpe do boat, did much damage to sev--r.il of the gunboats in the harbor, and made a .marked impressisn on the Spanish land batteries." As soon as the Hist and Wampatuck discovert d that the Hornet was disabled, their captains decided that it would be use less to ngnt longer against sucn a su perior enemy. Accordingly the Wam patuck hastened to the rescue of the Hornet, t ie Hist meantime keeping up its sharpest fire. The Hist for merly was the Hespita', is 174 feet long, 23,25 feet wide, .-and has a displace ment of 472 tons. ' July 9, 11, 12 and 131 If DRY GOODS 1 PANY I REROUTED KILLED. Several P:iits Say Cajit. W. C. Mel'ar lanl was Killed at Santiago. A report of the battle at San Jm,n Hill, one of the strongest the Ann-r-icans encountered, say Captain W. C. McFarland was killed in the battle. He is a brother-in-law of the editor of this paper and has many warm friend-, here. Other reports, published in the Enquirer, Courier-Journal and larger papers, say he is only wounded in thu leg. The latter report is accepted as the correct one, as the battle took place last Saturday and all the regi mental officers being acquainted with Capt McFarland's family, and know iug their address, would certainly havis informed them had he been killed. Capt. McFarland is a very large man and a shot from a r'lla striking the bone of his'leg would certainly cause him to falL As the company wa making a mad rush to the front, the supposition is they ran over their lead er, thinking him dead. The telegram says: ""The charge was the greatest of the Jay, and the most important, for the nill was the chief de.ense overlooking Santiago. General Hawkins calleu upon our men to cnarge. The Spanish lire seemed irresistible, but the men did not fiinch. With yells they charg ed up the hill. The merciless shells tore gaps 'in their ranks, but on thev went, inspired by General Haw kins and other olliers. Company E. of the Sixteenth Infantry, was in front. Captain McFarland was killed in the first moments-of the rush. His eompany wavered a moment, and then Lieutenant Carey jumped into the lead, md yelled "Come on company E!" The company dashed on, but a few minutes later Lieutenant Carey was killed. None of the men seemed to realize the errific deadly fire that was being joured into their faces. On they went like demons." His wife and son, who are in New York, have heard nothing whatever, 'rom Capt McFarland. The belief jf the family is that he was wounded ind fell, his company in the great ex citement and rush going on over him.
