properly thinks might as well bo settled now
Tho decision will be looked for with not a lit

or who supposed they wero by spiritualists

rived yesterday from Ohio and Kentucky
where he has been tracing the origin of the
cases of pleuro pneumonla which have brok
out In Illinois Last evening at the Palmoi
he said that ho had located tho disease both
in Ohio and Kentucky It had originated in

thence had spread into other States
Ho had seven infected cattle killed in the
Dye herd and the disease had been stamped
out In that locality They had also discov
ered it on Mitchells farm at Dayton but
they were unable to suppress it there be
cause they could not agree with Mitchell at
to the value of tho animals Ohio had no
cattle law and the owner can not bo made to
slaughter diseased cattle Mitchell wanted
him to pay tho full value of the cattle This
he could not do Tho money with which
owners aro indemnified is furnished by tht
States or Breeders Association Having no
funds on hand he could do nothing but he
had placed a strict quarantine on the cattlo
Tho disease in Mitchells hord came
from Dyes cattlo and it hod been
brought to Dye from Muryland He had also
found tho Infection at Cynthiana Kentucky
in a hord of 250 cattle owned by Frisby and
twelve cows wore suftering from tho dlsor
der Four had been killed and the rest wen
quarantined This infection had come from
tho farm of M B Clark at Geuova Illinois
Ho thought arrangements would bo made by
which tho entire herd it Cynthiana could be
killed and the diseaso damped out It ex
isted at no other locality In Kentucky Dr
Salmon will return at co to Wushlngtoa
Ho thinks tho diseaso is veil under control

A Summary of tho Crop Outlook as
Seen from Marseilles
Washington D C Sept 29 Frank S
Mason United States Consul at Marseilles
has sent the Depart aient of State a transla
tion from tho Semaphore a newspaper of that
city relative to the European harvest this
year The Semaphore in summing up tho
situation says
The harvest has been plentiful not only
in America but in Europe The situation
is nearly tho same as in 82 with the differ
ence that there existed then no large availa
ble surplus from tho preceding crop a cir
cumstance which must now bo taken into
serious consideration We must besides
observe that even if the present crop is by
15 or 20 per cent inferior to that of 1882
Europe will stand in less need than last year
for foreign produce There is no probability
that tho prices of cereals will rise to tho rates
of two years ago
