Oats will roach from sixty to nlntv bushels lo thu ncro nnd forty-five pounds to thu bushel. Wu bnvo hud some trouble on account of the rain. Wo need dry weather now to ripen the corn. A lurgn number of our farmers will prove up on their hinds this year , the shocrful pros pects nnd good crops giving them nil the encouragement they need. A number of the settlers up our way loft us nnd wont homo during the win ter , but tlioy have sincu returned. They went nway with the permission of Iho gov ernment , which allows settlers six months' / leave of absence when n failure of crops upon % -thoir claims ocei'rs. AH they hnvo to do is to file an iiflldnvlt of the failure nnd the settlers can go where they please for the tlmo allowed. W. A , Duy of Hull County The crops nro generally very good. Melons , however , nre very poor. There am very few of our fnrm- crs raising sugar beets , for tha reason thnt they do not consider that they huvo been treated rightly. They do not tlnnlc they have hoen well enough paid. You know there can bo no such thing as a full crop. It has never taken place. Well , thut wns -/rxpected of the farmers wbo were raising C sugar boots. They could not have mixed u full crop of anything , more especially of hoots , something they had never raised he- fore. I know it to bo n fnct , though , that f-omo of thu farmers did bettor when they wore cultivating tbo boots in their own wny thun they did when tlioy weru under the In struction of thu exports who hud bcon im ported from abroad. N. H. Hnnson , Hunter , Dlxon county The irops this year nro ttio boat wo h.ivo hud for four yeiiM nnd everybody feels hnppy over ttio prospect.

They nro attracted to us bocuuso wo have had good crops every year , except possibly thrco years ncro when small grain illd not show up veiy well. Corn Is n little late , but it is that wny nil over the country. It will yield with us from forty to sixty bushels per ucro , J , J. Morris , Humboldt , Hlchnrdsoncounty It the frost keeps off till the corn Is matured wo shall huvo n good tmrvcst. Some of the corn Is good and some U not good. It is all owing to the peculiarity of the season. Some of it is spotted. The wet season pre vented corn from maturing. It would muku one stulk shorl nnd allow another to grow lull. Wu shall not bnvo n great crop , but wu ihnll bnvo a good one. Joseph GralT , Firth , Lancaster county . corn with us Is not us good as It was two \onrs ngo , though our small grain Is much butter than it over wns before.

Wo have never had a teetotal fallutv , though last year was the nearest to one I have over icon. Dr. Lewis , Albion -Tho corn Is late , the Wheat U good , the oats excellent , 'i'lioj are the bast evur raised la the county. Money U rather IOBU-O , though real citato has taken a rise nnd Is maintaining It. This crop will put the farmers on their feet.

Thov uro awny ahead of nny crop they overbad. In my nmneiHato vicinity , wheat will run from a third tn a half moru than nt nny other tlmo. Corn will bo four times greater , nnd wlicnt from thruo to four times moro than before , Thu further west you go , the belter the crops become , which Is , purhnps , Just us thu people require. S. J.

Anderson , Burwcll Thn farmers In our neighborhood mo nearly ull now ones. Mnny of them came there with very llltlo money. They got Into ilout. These of them wbo hud been In debt before lasl your , found it prottv hard last winter. They bave found it prottv hard even during the past season. Mnny of ttioin did not have sulllcient feed for tbclr horses and they could not give tbo oropur attention to their crops. As n result , the crops In such instances will not average well. Those farmers would put their horses out to feed one-half of tbo duy on crass and work thorn the other half. Hut they conlil'nt cultivate well in that manner. O. Wilson , Burwoll Let mo glvo you u sample of what wo hnvo raised. S. T. Flur- rlor threshed thirty-eight bushels of wheat to the acre , and in ono ucro nnd tbroe-qunr- lors iho yield was sovunty-four bushels. That wns good enough for f'-an-ncro land. Wo nro sending out two men Monday next systemat ically to advertise. They nro going to Illinois und oilier stutcs especially to seek people with means to como and settle among Us. O. P. linger , near Lushton Nothing was raised among us last year , not enough to feed the stock. This year every product is great and fruit Is especially plentiful. Winter wheat Is making about forty bushels to the ncro. Oats , however , nro not oven. Tins Is owing to the vnrloty Ihnt wns u ed. The rust set in nnd struck some of them. Vegetables nro in abundance. Wo have few settlers coming into our country. Thcro Is no lam ! but what Is owned by the residents. Thcru are no speculators nnd no rnilroad Muds. Hess Colwell , Kxoter All ngreo thnt the crops of this year will makeup wbat was lost lust year. I huvo hoard none of tbo farmers tnlk about thn excessive charges of tbo railroads. II. C. Hnrdnock , Alvo The crops have been somewhat injured by the ruins. The farmers are diacu.sjinif freight rates and want some reduction. Some of them propose to hold their grain until they can get the prices thuy want , but these wno nro renting cnn not do this. Some of these renters are paying f . 'iO for oigtity acres. O. J. Moello , Montclalro , Nuckolls county I haven't heard much kicking nbout rnil road rules , but they are certainly high enough. I think it will hardly pay for me to ship my grain , because I believe the specu lators hnvo special rates. These shippers nro preferred to tbo farmer. I huvo planted fifty acres of winter wheat and will realize 1,500 bushels from it. The crops are bettor now than thev have over been before. K. H. Boll , Dunbar If tlm frost will stay awny two or tbroo weeks wo will havu ex cellent crops. Wo can stand a tittle frost , Just enough to stop vegitation and ripen the corn , but not too much. ' William Campbell , Nebraska City The railroads could reduce rates one-llfth nud still make money. Wo ship beef and pork und fruit. They charge mo 27 cents to ship apples to Columbus , u distance of 127 miles , and it costs mo only the same amount to ship Icattie to Chicago , a distance of 000 mllos. Otoo county will tTiis year shin 150- , 000 barrels of apples and a largo part of these will go to Chicago. Ono firm will take 30,000 of them because the npplos can bo shipped east cheaper than it can bo shipped west. Tomorrow's Programme. Class O Instruments. Whole of this class.

ITATX CASE SIITTI.r.n. The Itata case is nt an end. It has worked Its own solution. There is no probnpillty that the procedure of the United States government - ornmont against the Chilian revolutionists charged with having unlawfully proceeded from the United States with ammunition * of war against another government will como before a court for determination. Wlion the revolutionists' vessel sailed from a California port lost summer with a ship load of guns and ammunition , in violation of neutrality laws of the United States , a serious question nroso. When they won their battle ngainst Bulmacoda and his forces at , Valparaiso , and the victory was inado complete by the capitulation of Santiago , the grievance of tUo United States against them was almost at an end. When the revolutionists wore given charge of Chill's govei mental machin ery and Balmacoda evacuated , a Second and important stop in that direction was taken. \Vhen the other day , the Department of State recognized the government in Chili , the res toration of peace between the United States and the revolutionists was practically made complete. When later , the agents of the new government proposed to raako restitu tion with the United States for money ex pended in overtaking the Jtatu , the differ ences between this and the now government resolved itself iuio a mere matter of dollars and cents. lll'TUKXINO TO WASHINGTON.

A fearful .south- easterly gale prevailed in this region last night , nnd raged with torrlbln violence from 10 o'clock until this afternoon. It has been disastrous to shipping on the const ns several good sized vessels nnd n number of smaller craft went ashore nnd afterward washed to pieces In tlio harbor , nnd other damage wns dono. Half of the Inlurcolonin Hallway bridge , across the harbor at the Narrows , has disappeared , and the grand shaft nt tint Intercolonial elevator wns car ried nway by Iho fierce wind. Trees nhd fences were leveled in the city and n Inrgo amount of minor damage wns dono. The velocity of the wind from 1 to 3 p. m. , until the time Iho storm nbatod could only bo guessed at. Both moturologlcul instruments wcru entirely broke down during Iho morn ing. The wind struck tlio harbor from the cast nnd swept along the wharves nnd through iho cily , tearing down ovcry- Ihlng loose and every insecure'pnrllclo of property in Us pnlb. Loose thlnglcs were sent Hying through the air , , slates bricks , dismantled awnings , swinging signs and telegraph nnd electric light wires were strewn In the streets to ftie danger of few foot passers abroad , and the police nnd elec tricians were busy nil night clearing up the debris. At the Lome club the freshet did much damage. The bathing houses at the head of South pier were lifted from thulr founda- Uons and toppled ouor mlo Iho dock. Nearly everybody's marine property sustained some damage by the cyclone. Advices from places outside of the city shows thai last night's gale was severely felt In all parts of tbo province , but so far no serious dnmngo is reported. From Yarmouth to Capo Breton the const was swept , and it is probable that numerous shipping casualties will bo hoard of In n day or two. SIHtATOll / , / , / . > O.V I.V lOII'A.

Allison opened the republican campaign in this city this afternoon in a three hours' speech , and ho rucolvod the applause of u largo audlonco tnat did not scein weary , al though thu speech was of unusual length. The tariff , free coinage , the prohibitory law and Governor Boles' Now York and Cherokee corn speeches were the subjects treated of by the senator. The MeiCinloy bill , ho said , though not perfect or hi all re spects us ho would have it , was the best tariff law ever enacted by congress , and was prov ing to bo a most beneficial law for the people. It had not Increased the cost of any article in common use whllo many staples had ac tually boon reduced in price since the passage - ago of thu bill. The reciprocity clnu&o had already opened the markets of three coun tries to us , and had alToutcd an entrance Into Franco and Germany for American pork. For this feature of the bill wo nro indebted to that wisa statesman , James G. Blaine. The mention of Mr. Blaino's name received loud and long continued applause. The sena tor claimed that the republican silvercolungo law provided for the use of nil the silver mined in the country while protecting Itself from the billion of foreign silver which would seek our shores under absolute free coinage. Considerable tlmo was dovotud to Governor Boies' Now York corn speech as ruanirmod in his Cherokee spcccti and thu llgures of Labor Commis sioner Sovereign upon which the governor's statements were analysed.

Thu law should.romam and bu respected nnd enforced until the people by a similar election demanded its repeal. The statement made by Governor Bolus in his Cherokee speech that the attempt to enforce the prohibition law had caused inoro pa purIsm - Ism and brought , misery to more homes than would the unrestricted salu ot alcoholic bovor.igos in the same lonsth of tlmo , was severely criticized , and the speaker thought with n governor , giving utterance to such words , elected there would bo hopes for the passage of nny Inw opposed by a considerable number of thu people.

HARROWING TALES OF DOMESTIC STRIFE , Woinnn'M Comitnnt I.ovo nnd Faltf > Ui'\vardcd by Ahn.su and .Murder A Sad Story. TornKA , Knn. , Sept. 8. In n pleasant cot tngo In Third street early this morning Count Gustavo Bergur shut and killed 1,1s wife ami then committed suicide by shooting himself In the head. The story of the fearful double tragedy is ono of the uncontrollable pttsslon of Hum , la- torwovcn with the constant love and faith' fulnoss of woman. Count Berger at the tlmo of his death was It ! years of ago and his wife was twenty years his Junior. Ho had resided in thla country ton years when ho sent to tha Fatherland for Miss Johnnnah Prutor , then a girl of 10 , to booomo his wifo. They were miirrlod In New York , where they lived thruo or four yonr.s , and than removed to Topoka. Thrco sons were born to them , the oldest , Uichard , now being 8 years old ; the second , ' Gustavo , ngodt ? , mid the youngest Is Paul , 4 years of age. The lifo of the count nr.d his young wlfa has been n stormy ono. The man was ex ceedingly high tempered nnd upon tha slightest provocation would procipitnlo a family quarrel. Tim young woman , too , had n will of tier own and would not submit pas sively to the ubuso which was so frequently heaped upon bur. Their stormy domestic career was tem porarily suspended about two years ago bjr moans of tbo divorce court. Mrs. Uergor could not , however , hear the stigma which was placed upon her children by legal sopar. ntlon. Her life had bcon threatened repeat edly by her unrcasonnblu husband. Sha finally consented to a remarriage for thu sake of her little ones , that they might bo brought up Inn proper manner. Thu promises made by her husband at the altar the second tlmo wuro not long kept , nnd soon thu old sccuei were being re-onnctod. Count Berger wiis understood to bo highly connected with various families li. Us native land. Ho received from Germany u regulntf allowance , and would huvo Inherited a larga estate upon tbo death of n certain rulativo , to which , however , the orphaned children nro still heirs. Count Berger , besides receiving Ins rogui lar remittance ! ! from Germany , owned several houses , in the vicinity ot his own homo , which ho rents. Yesterday ho received from one of bis tenants flli , the amount of month's runt. His wit'u usioil him for $1 with which to buy a pair of trousers for ono of the boys. The man received this request with n shower of nbuso , severely censuring his wife for her oxtrnvneuncc. At tbo breakfast table this morning yes terday's quarrel was reopened , nnd linally hnrsh words were followed by blows. Tha count praspod his wife by the unit nnd Hung her to the floor nnd kicked her brutally. Sha succeeded in regaining her feet and ran out of the house , when ho wont to the bedroom nnd , taking n bull dog revolver of t'J-calibro from the bureau , Hrcd at her as she ran. The ball struck her Ju.st below the loft shoulder in the back , killing her Instantly. Shu fell a few foot from the front stops in the yard. The murderer then turned the gun toward himself while standing in tbo doorway nnd put u hole through his head , thu ball enter ing Just below the loft eye. The coroner held nn inques. , 'shortly after the shooting , nnd thu Jury rut'urnud n vurdict in accordance with thu facts us heru slated. Until a year ago Count Burger was oin- ployud ns a hook-iicoper by II. McConnell & Co. , lumber dealers , but since then ho ha * hud no regular employment. The murdered woman has a brother ! II. Prutor , living ut Carroll , In. , who has been tulcgraphud to como nnd tnko charge of the remains and tha children. Count Borccr was a man of good personal habits. Ho was In unusually easy circum stances financially. His little homu is hand somely furnished nnd tinishcd , nnd bears an air of refinement and comfort. Mrs. Borgoc was by no means nn extravagant woman , but she took u pardonable prldo In her chlu drmi , nnd was always desirous of seeing them dressed us well as these of her neighbors.
