Loniaville, Ky, March 10, 1899.
Under offerings of about lOuO
hhds. each day this week (except
Monday), tbs market has been ac
tive and strong, with good compe
tition on all grades of Burley with
the exception of the finer grades of
leaf, which havs been off a few bids
from the prices obtained 10 dnys
since. To give you an idea of
how the prices have run on differ
ent grades, we quote you some
sales made at our bouse on yester
day. In J. W. Montjoy's sale from
Montgomery county bis flyings sold
from $5 to f5.e0; his tips and
short red from $9.40 to $7.90; his
leaf from $10.75 to $13.75. In
Bridgeforth A Pierce's crop, from
Montgomery county, their flyings
and trashes sold for $5.40, $5.50.
$7.50, $7.90, $8.80; leaf and lugs
and short red sold at $8, $8.40, $8.80,
$10, $10.25, $11.25, $18, and $14.
Bridgeforth A Clark, leaf and lugs
sold at $7.70. $7.90, $7.90, $8.10,
$8.90, $8.20. $11.25 and $12. In
prizing tobacco from this on until
it is redried all grades should be
prised with as little ease in them
as possible. We urge our friends
to prise their tobacco grade and
grade alike as near aa they can
place it In the bad. In this wsy
you will receive better prices than
should you use seconds and get
break of them in the sample.

The Greatest Wedding.
The newspsper reporters of the
time of Alexsnder the Great, had
there been any, would have had
the heaviest dsy's work of their
lives in converting the interesting
events that msrked the day Alex
ander was married. On that day,
authenticated accounts tell us, no
less than 20,202 men and women
were made husbands and wives.
Alexander bad conquered Darius,
of Persia, and be felt that tbis
great achievement was important
enough to be signalized in a con
spicuous manner. Imagine the
pride of a conqueror who decides
that it can be measured properly
only by a wholesale giving and
taking In marriage the like of
which the world has never known.
Alexander himself married Sta-
tira, the daughter of the conquered
King, and decreed that 100 of bis
chief officers should be united to 100
ladies from the noblest Persian and
Median families. In addition to
this, he stipulsted that 10,000 of his
Greek soldiers should msrry 10,000
Asistio women.
When evervthinsr was settled a
vast pavilion was erected, the pil
lars of which were six feet high
One hundred gorgeous chambers
adjoined thia for the one hundred
noble bridegrooms, while for the
10,000 an outer court was inclosed,
outside of which tables were spread
for the multitude. Each pair had
seats, and rsnged themselves in
semicircles around the royal throne.
Of course, the priests could not
marry this vast number of couples
in the ordinary way, so Alexander
the Great devised a very simple
ceremony. Be gave his band to
Statira and kissed her an exam
ole that all the bridegrooms fol
lowed. .
This ended the ceremony. Then
followed the festival, which lasted
five days, and the grandeur of
which has never been equaled since,

Kentucky Crop Report.
Condition of Crops and Live
Stock March 1st, 1899.
Replies were received this month
from 1M eorrKpoMdents,representlii)r
98 count lea.
It may be well to rctitate in this,
the flrrt report of the year, the boun
darii'R of the sections Into which the
State, for the aake of convenience
and accuracy, is divided and the
reasona for the separation. The Ir
regular contour of the countiea makes
it Impracticable to divide upon
straight lines in any given course.
Again, it is advisable to separate the
dark tohacco"district in the western
part of the State from the Burley
district of the central and eastern
portion. Likewise it is desirable to
separate the counties in the eastern
and southeastern portion, where the
production of any crop rarely exceeds
the home demand and where the
percentage of increase or decrease
affects In a small measure only the
actual production of the State, from
the other sections producing a large
surplus. To meet all these varied
conditions the following divisions
appear to us as the best to be de
vised :
The western section composes 39
counties west of an irregular line
drawn from the eastern boundary of
Hardin county on the north to the
eastern boundary of Allen on the
stuth, the intervening counties of
Larue, Hart and Darren being placed
In the western section. The central
or to be more accurate, the north
central section, embraces 40 counties
lying east of the almve-dcscrlbed
boundary and northeast of nti irreg
ular line drawn from the eastern
boundary of Lewis county on the
northeast of Larue county in the
southeast, the intervening counties
of Hath, Montgomery, Clark, Madl
on, Lincoln, Itoyle and Marion b?lng
in the central section. The eastern
or southeastern section is composed
of the remaining 40 counties lying
southeast of the above-described
lines. .
WHEAT.
The condition of the wheat crop
December 1st, the date of the last re
port, was 94, compared with average
years. As set out in that report
there whs a lengthy luterval between
the early sown uud the late sown
wheat due to an unusually wet Oc
tober, wheat sowing being suspend
ed for a greater portion of the month.
The early sown wheat attained a
growth that promised to withstand
any weather text to which it miyht
ho subjected. This promise hris been
realised, and at this date early wheat
is generally reported in excellent
condition. L.ate sown w!i,at was
barely above ground at the advent
of winter, ad the severe wenthetf it
has encountered, both in the early
and latter parl& of winter, lias left it
in a condition that may be aptly de
scribed ss a ' bluo prospect." Whole
fields now appear without a vestige
of growth above ground and, while a
few correspondents venture the opin
ion that the roots are uninjured, it
will take some weeks of warm grow
ing weather to develop the full extent
of damage. As a rule there was an
ample covering of snow during the
extreme cold weather of February,
but, falling as it did ou an almost
solid sheet of ice, the benign effects
of the protection was in a measure
lost.
Answers to the question "Has
wheat suffered from any cause dur
ing the winter? If so, state cause,"
resulted in replies from 115 corres
pondents, of which number 97 state
that wheat suffered from "freeze,"
and 18 say it has not been appreciably
damaged during the winter.
Heavy rains, particularly in the
western section, is another source of
no inconsiderable damage.
The condition for the State as a
whole, compared with average years,
is 80, which Is a loss of 14 points
since December 1st. For the three
preceding years the condition on
March 1st was as follows: 1898, 92:
1897, 88, and 1896, 88.
The three sections separately show
the following average condition as
of this date: Western, 70; central, 85,
and eastern, 88.
The per cent, of crop of 1898 still in
the bands of farmers Is estimated at
26. On March 1st, 1898, it was esti
mated that 17 per cent, of crop of
preceding year was then in the hands
of farmers. On March 1st, 1897, a
similar estimate showed 9 per cent,
of the old crop In farmers' bands.
The price of wheat March 1st aver
ages 68c. On March 1st, 1898, the av
erage price was 90c, and March 1st,
1897, tiie price was 84o.
CORN.
Estimate on the percentage of corn
crop of 1898 still in farmers' hands
give the amount at 43 per cent. Qn
March 1st, 1898, the per cent, of crop
of precediug year in bands of farmers
was 44.
LIVE STOCK.
The trying effects of the unusually
severe winter on live stock has to
some extent been mitigated by the
abundance of feed. Still, among
young stock and stock unprovided
with shelter, the loss has been heavy
and the suffering intense. The heav
iest loss has been with lambs and
young pigs. Borne correspondents
estimate the loss of lambs at S3 per
cent, of the crop. Recent experience
should impress upon farmers the
economy ef providing ample shelter
for stock during the months of bad
weather.
The condition of the various class
es of live stock averagea as follows:
Horses, 94; cattle, 90; sheep, 89, and
hogs, 90. The conditions March 1st,
1898, were 96, 95, 88 aud 91 respect-

THE ErKECTS OK THE FEBRUARY
COLD WAVE.
The period from February 6th to
14th will be long remembered as a
senson of phenomenal low tempera-1
tore. Remarkable not only for the
low temperature recorded, but also
for pertiuacity with which this
temperature was maintained. Cov
ering a period of some ten days the
mercury rose above the sero mark.
Minima of 10 to 24 and even as low
as 89 degrees below sero were re
ported during this time. In addition
to the loss and suffering of live stock
already noted the injury to the fruit
crop is far reaching. Peaches will
not only be a failure this year but
the damage to trees will be such that
the crops for several years to come
will be affected. The same Is true
of cherries and plums, with the pos
sible exception of sour cherries.
Pears, though injured to some ex
tent, still promise a fair yield. Apples
have escaped injury save the injury
to trees from heavy sleet in some
sections.
Of the small fruits raspberries have
suffered most and will probably be a
failure. It is feared, too, that the
injury extends to the wild blackber
ries. Strawberries have escaped in
jury so far. Lucas Mookb,
