The Milk Maid brigade has become gradually augmented until it now nun\- bers over 76. The drill, under the able leadership of Capt. C. A. Herb, already begins to assume form and shows that the fair recruits are not slow to learn the maneuvers of military tactics. They forward march, right about face and dress upin a style that reflects credit both upon the leader and the company. The ladies who have the carnival in charge feel deeply grateful to Mr. Herb for the manner in which he has taken hold of the drill, kindly giving his time, and dearly acquired experience m a way that they feel sure will materially aid in bringing the entertainment to a successful issue. One of the pleasant features connected with the Mendelsuohn society is the enjoyable social interchange that is offered Uy the occasional trips to Upper Alton. An outing of any kind even If it is on the street cars upon such a lovely afternoon as last Wednesday, is an agreeable break m the monotony of daily life. The recital took place ai the charming home of Mrs. H. E. Mills. Although there was not as .large an attendancej as usual, or as lengthy a programme, the selections given were of sufficient merit to give pleasure and afford some interesting remarks from tho critic of the afternoon who was Mrs. C.

The midget which is injuring the strawberry crop in Southern Illinois is described by Dr. Diehl, in the Centralia Sentinel. Is invisible to tho naked eye. From two to three hundreds of them have been found in a single bloom. They appear in their motions to hop, but do not, as the motion is that of flying. From the natural construction of tho insect it is evident that they are extraordinarily prolific, one female pro* ducing many millions in a life time which is possibly not to exceed a week Dr. Diohl states that so far he has boeu unable to find a description laid down in the books aud |,that a classification o* the insect is at present impossible. For years tho cry of rust, blight, etc., has been raised and evidently justly, so that growers were discouraged. Cobden, Anna, Makanda, in fact nearly all Southern Illinois has complained of some* thing, and evidently the insect described by Dr. Dlehl is the cause of it, Burnett Bros., Commission merchants, of Chicago,have issued ft "photo" of tho sub loot as it appears under a powerful microscope, with a description thereof, which they are sending out to their patrons.
