The last Nebraska crop bulletin says that corn has generally deteriorated in condition and even in the northern counties. wnere the rainfall has been . sufficient for the corn crop previous to the last week, the corn is reported as damaged somewhat during the last week. The amount of damage in this section is variously estimated, some placing it as high as "23 per cent ' and some claiming little or no dam , age. Much of the early planted corn has dried out so rapidly that it is har dened beyond injury by frcst. Late planted corn is ripening prematurely and will be a very short crcp generally. Corn has ripened so very rapidly th? last three weeks that most of it will be beyond injury by frost in a week or ten days. The last week has been fa vorable for threshing and haymaking. The wild or native grass is being cut for hay quite generally and the crop varies from fair to good, but is above the average in most sections. G. .. R. Affairs.

Secretary Alger and General Shafter were at camp Meade to-day. They witnessed a review of the troops and made a hurried tour of the camp. General Alger resumed his journey at noon to Detroit and General Shafter went to Washington. They were closeted together an hoar this morning in the Secretary's pri vate car. which was run on a siding at Camp Meade station. While General Graham was arranging for the review, Secretary Alger and General Shafter had another conference, lasting thirty minutes. What passed between them neither would sav, except that it was a private affair. General Shafter said the secretary was a very dear friend and that they had been in the civil war together as colonels. He is at work on his report of the Santiago campaign and expects to complete it to-morrow. Speaking of the controversy with General Miles. Shafter said: "It is all poppycock. There is no friction between General Miles and mvseif. At least there was not when he left ' Santiago.
