There has comparatively recently come to light a disease which dwarfs the corn and develops a fatal disease in cattle which are allowed to feed upon sucli affected stalks. It is not a new one, having been discovered some years ago by Prof. Burrill, of Champaign, 111. This year, however, it is beginning to attract attention in several States, especially in Northern Illinois. The first the farmer notices of it Is that his corn refuses to grow. The lower leaves turn light green in 'color, then yellow and finally die; somewhat upon the same principle as the workings " of the chinch bug. The disease affects not only an occa sional stalk or hill, but sometimes whole acres. Upon examination it i3 found that the lower roots are all dead and the stalk is held in its place by only a few o...

.n L" -i" X ' -.r i ' PRIVILEGES OF PEERS Modern Xbblemen Have More PrlYileawa Iii Theory Than In Reality. Theoretically a peer has many priv V ilege; prictically he has very few. The word peer must be understood to include Dukes, Marquises, Earls, Vis counts and Barons; though it is gen erally understood to include all per sons entitled to the prefix of Duke or Lord. In common parlance, these are the two prefixes of English nobility. The title of the present Prime Minis ter is the Marquis of Salisbury, but nine times out of ten he is referred to as Lord Salsbury. That nobleman's old rival, the Earl of Derby, is gen erally spoken of as Lord Derby, and for every man who speaks of Viscount Wolseley there are at least a score "who apply to the hero of Tel el Keber the shorter and moro popular prefix Lord." Lord Tennyson is fre quently spoken of, but the poet laureate is really a Baron and his correct title, to be punctiliously accurate is Alfred, Baron Tennyson. In other words, al most...
