CROPS ASP BUSINESS.
The Prospect Ahead for Both in This
Section of the Country.
MORE THAK AH AYEEAGE YIELD
Is Expected, Although the Wet Weather Has
BUSDfESS OUTLOOK GENERALLY FAIR.
From present indications the crops of
"Western Pennsylvania, Eastern Ohio and
"West Virginia will be above the average.
In some sections wet weather and similar
causes have operated to the disadvantage of
certain staples, but in few cases does this
react any disastrous extent, and in many
locaUitie the harvest promises to be unusual
in its abundance.
In a general sense the business outlook is
rerv fair. The disaster in the Cenemaugh
"Valley of course completely prostrated trade
in that section, which can, therefore, hardly
be considered in the estimate. Uncertainty
in some lines has had a depressing effect,
but the outlook for the future is considered
to be bright in almost all quarters. Build
ing operations, in particular, are active, and
this is taken as a sure indication that a con
fident leelmg prevails.
Through the courtesy of Arthur B. "Wig
ley, manager of the Pittsburg Mercantile
Agency of K. G. Dun & Co., the reports
from the various points in this region are
PENS ST E.VANI A.
The corn crop has been injured by con
tinued wet weather. Weeds are generally
above the corn, which is not growing.
"Wheat and oats promise to yield unusual
crops if tney get a few days' sun to fill out
the heads. Potatoes-promise well.
Business all depends on coke and coal,
and consequently is dull, with not much
outlook tor immediate improvement.
"Wheat looks well. Corn is not doing
much good. The floods have kept the corn
back, and it is vellow in color and small in
the stock. Eye looks well. We never had
better prospects for a good wheat and rye
harvest. Oats and crass are coming along
nicely and promise the usual yield.
The business outlook is not very good.
The floods in the Conemaugh have been felt
by the people of our county, and not until
late in the season can business be expected
The condition of crops is good. It looks as
though these would be better than the aver
age yield in almost all features.
The businsss outlook is also good. Should
the wool crop go off early things generally
will be in a prosperous condition. Some
of the farmers complain somewhat of de
pression, but in case wool sells well it will
relieve the strain somewhat.
Corn riot doing as well as it should, but
will be an average crop. "Wheat and oats
sre in excellent condition and will be above
the average. Hay will be a good crop.
Apples, peaches and plums will be an aver
age crop. .Berries ol all kinds are in abund
ance or prospects look that way. Potatoes
look very fine and will be above the aver
age. The business outlook is very poor. There
is nothing doing here and storekeepers are
complaining of very little money in circula
tion. Capitalists in this section have
plenty of money, but are afraid to make in
vestments unless they are assured a profit.
The outlook for wheat, grass and oats is
splendid,- and the prospect for abundant
crops in all the above is very flattering. The
continual cool, wet weather the past two or
three weeks has kept the corn back Corn is
small lor this season of the year, but it seems
to be well rooted, and warm nights and days
for the next few weeks will make it come
out all right. The prospect for the average
amount of fruit is good.
The business outlook is good. Quite an
amount of money is being expended in build
ing, and the outlook is encouraging. If the
farmers could dispose of their wool at fair
figures it would tend to make business bet
ter. "No sales of wool reported.
Prospects for a full crop of every kind of
grain are unusually bright Grass will be
heavy. The wet. eool weather has prevent
ed the bugs from harming the potatoes.
Apples will be a nuisance, but peaches are
not so plenty.
The business outlook is fair, but money is
scarce; too much of it has gone into dry
holes, the nearest producing well being five

could hope for, and more new buildings are

The crop prospect is good, especially
wheat. The wet weather, with rather cold
rains at times, has kept back the working of
corn and potatoes, and spring crops are not
in as good condition as they would have been

Some of the lumbermen, especially those
along the larger streams, lose largely from
heavy floods washing out their dams.
The crops in this section look splendid,
except the corn, which is coming along -very
slow on account of the wet weather, wheat
and grass was never better. Oats look well,
too. There has been too much wet weather
for farming purposes.
The business outlook in and around is
not so bright All kinds of trade seem
rather dull, especially since the Johnstown
disaster. The coke business is blow, and
therefore aife"cts other trades more or less.
The season thus far has been one of un

The acreage is considered up to the aver
age. Grass is abundant, under Irequent
rains, but danger is feared for the wheat

able weather occurs. Prospects are for an
average yield of all crops. ,
Trade "has been quiet for several months
and now seems to be slow. Merchants re
port slow collections and sales reduced.
The continued rain this season, while it
has been detrimental to some crops, has been
favorable to others, and as vet there is no
serious damage to be noted on account of
wet weather. Hay will be an-exceptionally
good crop. Wheat looks very promising,
and if we do not have too much rain before
harvest to cause rust, the prospects are for a
good average crop. Corn has been retarded
by the wet and is not as far advanced as it
should be at this season, but good growing
weather will bring it on all right and insure
at least an average yield.
The heavy and continued rains we have
experienced, have proven beneficial in most
sections of the State in bringing ont timber

which has been lying there for years. Most
of the country merchants in this State are
interested directly or indirectly in the lum
ber business, and the getting out of this tim

money. The general tone of business is
hopeful, and while merchants and manufact
urers do not look for any decided "boom,"

He Says the Little Scholars Tie With High
THEIR REALLY CHARMING EXHIBITION
The closing exercises of St Paul's school
commenced yesterday morning in the base
ment of the cathedral. The children will
look back to this feast with unalloyed joy,
and the very reverend pastor and sisters, in
charge, with feelings of satisfaction. Long
before the appointed hour the basement was
crowded by the little ones, and the parents
and well-wishers who had come to witness
this pleasing scene. Among the clergy
present were noticed the "Very Eev. Dr.
Wall, V. G., Pastor and the RevMessrs.
P. Molyneux, F. Conway, V. Artorri and
Dr. MacDonald.' Miss Lillie O'Brien pre
sided at the piano and discoursed the Irish
and American national airs during the

varied programme was gone through. The

LIKE YOUNG CADETS.
Mr. V. Eeed has been drilling the boys
for some time, and they gave a very good
proof of their proficiency by the various
maneuvers they went through, with mili
tary accuracy. These young cadets are
good specimens of the doughty sons on
whom the Bepnblic can count in the future.
The calisthenics by the little girls were re
ceived with special favor. The variety of
costnmes and movements would remind one
of the festive scenes of the orient as painted
in "Lalla Eookh."
In "Grandpapa and I," -Tohnnie Lynch
took without a sneeze a uouble pinch of
snufi as stoically as any grandpapa, how
ever antiquated he may be. Miss Nellie
Donoghue recited "Orange and Green,"
with a pathos which, it imitated, would cer
tainly promote the happy blending of both
tnese emoiems. The little tots drank an en
thusiastic toast to "Auld Lang Syne" with
as exquisite a gusto, as if their memories
went centuries backward.
The event of the entertainment was un
doubtedly "The Fairy Dance." Mary
Cunnon was a success as Fairy Queen. The
"Last Eose of Summer," "Hail Columbia,"
"Home, Sweet Home," "Yankee Doodle,"
etc., were so successfully blended in "The
Patriotic Glee" as to bring down the ap
plause of the whole house.
At the close of the entertainment the Very
Eev. Dr. WalL Vicar General, spoke from
the stage as follows:
DE. "WALL'S ADDKESS.
Mr Deak Friends I feel that I am only
giving expression to the sentiments of you all
here present when Isay that this entertainment
has been pre-eminently successful in every
sense of the word. This great and marked suc
cess is due entirely to the untiring energy and
self-sacrificing zeal dlSDlayed by the good Sis
ters.. You will, therefore, children, thank the
Sisters for the unflagging efforts and unswerv
ing purpose they have employed to promote
your welfare. The exhibition we have wit
nessed to-day would do credit to any school in
the city. Nay, more; by grace of gesture and
proficiency in music and in song. It U equal to
anything we can see in the High School.
Everything has been done by the good Sisters
to develop and to mold the block of marble.
Any words in favor of this system would be lost
on you, since you all rightly value Christian ed
ucation. To those who oppose us we have to
say that had they been here to witness what
has taken place, they would be edified, and per
haps enlightened. But children are not only
instructed in the catechism, but in all the use
ful branches of knowledge.
To the boys.I would say,forget not the lessons
that have been taught you. Do not forget the
good Sisters who have made so many sacrifices
in your behalf. To the girls I will say. preservo
with care ail the virtues otyonr age, sweetness,
modesty, pity, candor, simplicity, obedience
and the lore of God. Let prudence be the safe
guard of all your virtues.
The very reverend Speaker concluded his ad
dress by thanking the Sisters in the name of
the parents and the children.

The Mysterious and Fatal Disease That is Eat.
ing Into the Lives and Carrying Away the
Brightest Minds in the Land An Explana
tion of What It is. ,
One of the most prominent physicians In New
York, who has just been Interviewed on this
subject, which is at this moment attracting so
much attention and being so talked about,
"What Is Paresis? It is consumption of the
nerves and brain. What causes it? Overwork,
excitement, indulgence, luph living and dissi
pation in all its forms. The mr.n whose hand
trembles as he lifts his 'glass of wine has the
sure symptoms of Paresis. The woman who
feels a sinking sensation in the midst of ocr
social cares is entertaininsan unwelcome guest
none other than the demon Paresis.
"But there aro other ways by which it maybe
known. Here are a few: Inability to remem
ber and place some familiar face, a pain or
tightness in the head, specially across the eyes
or base of the biain, frequent watering of the
eyes, absentmindednets, desire to sleep bnt im
possibility to do so, a flashed face one day and
a nale one the nxi, special redness of the face
or eyes." The above named symptoms, all of
which Indicate the presence of the terrible
Paresis, aro not imaginary, but the solemn
truth, which the growth of our already over
crowded madhouses and increase of our ceme
teries only too painfully attest. There are men
to-day high In professional life who are going,
going quietly, surely, and j et without knowing
it, into this horrible maelstrom. Indeed, it is
blighting the city In its silent, yet relentless
way. worse than the plagne. There was once
before a great evil in New York, and its chief
cause said: "What are yon going to do about
It?" But the people arose and threw it off. The
same thing must bo tlonc with Paresis. How?
First, adopt the right manner of living and
then carefully treat it bv the only known dis
covery for Paresis which has ever been found.
Palne's Celery Compound will prevent, will
cure it. This great remedv i3 the discovery of
the late Prof. Phelps, of Dartmouth College,
which is in itself a Sufficient guarantee cf its
purity, while its power is admitted both by the
medical profession and tho best scientists. It
is certainly one of the most important Discov
eries of modern time, and its popularity at the
present time is merited.

with bilious attacks, more especially in the
spring months, after the system has been sur
