We learn from our exchanges that quite a number of cities in this state and vicinity contemplate putting in the electric system. In the near future Sterling will be honored by visits of representative men from many leading cities who will come for the purpose of posting themselves on the practicability of the system. —A" drunken individual, who said he waa from Morris, Grundy Co., 111., created a disturbance on 1st avenue about 9 o'clock last evening. At the free bridge he made some remarks to the crowd standing there. Then he went on up the street, and as the crowd followed him up, he supposed they wanted to fight. So he laid hia watch on the sidewalk in front of Man- nerchor hall, and placing hla hat over it, dared any one to knock it 'off, and swore at the whole crowd, Some party sent him a blow on the nose, knocking him down. He got up and yelled, "Murder, murder, I've been robbed.'. The police came, but upon inveatiga- tiou found him badly intoxicated, and the facts as above stated. He left town shortly after. —The crop products of this year in Illinois are worth a vast sum of money, much more, in fact, than people generally suppose. The wheat product ia es timated at 37,201,919, bushels, oats at 142,150,811 bushels, rye at 3,803,419 buah- "ela, barley at j,207,167 bushels, and corn probably 272,000,000 bushels. Close es- timbtes on tbe value of the wheat, oats, rye and barley of this year, and estimating the corn, potatoes and fruits, as near as may be, from the products of previous years, the crops of thia year, without any reference to broom corn, sorghum, cistor bcanv-to'-vicco-nnrt-R few other minor crops,and leaving: live stock and dairy products entirely out oTthe consideration cannot ¥e~wofth~ less than 8142,000,000.

In fact, the Illinois corn crop alone, in a good year, is worth about $80,000,000, and that itself is more than the average annual output of the precious metal in the whole country. Thus, corn is King and the knights of the plow dig up much more money each year than those who delve in the mines for gold and silver. And BO, as to the "poor farmer," if he's not all right, who ia? Fifteen to Seven. The Sterlings played a model game for three innings yesterday, allowing but 9 Chicagos to go te bat, 3 in each inning.

Sterlings got in 7 errors, allowing six unearned runs to ba scored. -The J-Gs seemed to try to outdo the record of the Sterlings in last Friday's game with the Inter-Oceana by making 15 errors, which allowed the Sterlings tb~score 15 unearnedrruiia. Welsh pitched a good game, and was unmercifully roasted on his drop ball, not getting one out of three strikes that he deserved on it. Smith pitched tine ball, but Injured his arm in the seventh inning and gave way to Dowd, but pitched the ninth liming. - He la a line little pitcher and it is to be hoped he has not thrown his arm out. Iloyt was in hard luck. Alter a severe collision with Calvin while trying for a foul fly, which knocked them both out for ten minutes, he split his thumb i^ the fourth inning and had to retire. Uowd did the cleanest work he has done at short, accepting 7 chances without an error, and getting 3 hits in 4 times to bat. •^ Rispln has his eye on the ball to the pleasure of hia many friends, catching a single, a double and a triple m 0 times to bat. Poole was suffering from Injuries received in Wednesday's game and played in right, Matthews covering first in good shape, excepting one low throw from Johnson, which he got in his hands off the ground, but -did not hold.

The equine is one of those ataid animals that is too lazy to take notice of railroad trains, brass bands, or the firing of cannons, and that it should be moved by a man falling down stairs is remarkable. WhaVs coming over your horse, MikeV —Galena Gazette: Rev. U.-JvO'Cal- Itighan, of StrMichael's church, preached a flne sermon Sunday, taking the words "out of the fullness of the heart the mouth speaketh" for his text.

This play was produced for the first time in July, at New York City, and waa enthusiastically received. The scenery will no doubt be very .fine, and the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius and the earthquake scene are aaid to be atrik- ingly realistic. Mr. Benedict ia too well known here to need comment at our hands and will no doubt receive a warm reception at the Academy tonight. They play in Dubuque tomorrow evening. —No one would suppose that Host Mills of the Gait held decided religious vlewa of any kind, but to-day be claims t" be a ranting, rearing spiritualist- lie told a reporter that he was converted this morning. He says he wtu granted a sitting with Mrs. Mott Knight, the slate writing medium, thia morning, and that several of the spirit friends he communicated with, told so many true secrets of the past, that he cinnot but believe there is something in It.
