A sensation was created at Defiance by the arrest of acomelyyoung- woman in male attire who is charged with burglarizing a store at Panama and appropriating' the garb she wore.

John Reeves, the well-known baseball player and last year's umpire in the illmois-Iowa league, stepped behind the counter of the Baker house at Ottnmwa, where he was employed as solicitor, and blew out his brains with a revolver.

Mrs. Jacob Anderson, of Mason City became violently insane, and, talcing her two little children by the hand, pro- cseeded toward the cemetery, where she intended to bury them alive as sacrifices. Some women banded tog-ether and wrested the children from their mother. PoHHflitl Conventions.

Reports, are coming very slowly from northwestern points, so slowly that tho cle- vator men here report it is a favorable omen. Had any damage been wrought the fact would have been hastily announced. The greatest fear was felt for the park region of Minnesota, stretching from Nt. Cloud to the Red river valley, but reports from Detroit and Park Kapuls say the growing wheat never looked better. Grand Forks, Cosset ton, Jamestown and Devil's Lake report no damage to wheat, and the belief is general an escape- has been made in the wheat country included in the frost line. I. he blade was not sufficiently advanced to be harmed, and will be benefited rather than otherwise. Through southern Minnesota and South Dakota the frost was too light to injure anything but flax, winch must be replanted in several localities. The greatest danger to the wheat crop at present is from drought. I he steady winds of the past few days have carried off the moisture and dried out the upper soil, where the wheat has yet but light root. Another week- without rain will cause considerable anxiety, but rain within that time will place the crop in security for the present, with every prospect of an extraordinary yield. MILWAUKEE, May 7.—Reports from the state regarding the heavy frosts are meager, but all agree that general ; damage was done only to garden truck I Iruits were not sufficiently advanced to be affected, and there is no other crop in the state at this season which could be injured. CENTKAIJA, 111., May 7.-A heavy frost occurred in this region Tuesday night, nipping berry blooms and early vegetables, but it is too early to correctly estimate the damage. The quantity of berries is reduced about a third. Damage to peaches and other fruits is unknown. MOMTICBI.M), 111., May 7.-There was a blighting frost in Piatt county and throughout central Illinois, killing truit at a fearful rate and greatly injuring the gardens. Ice froze one-inch inch thick in places. The peach crop is greatly injured. WINCHESTER, 111., May 7.-A heavy frost here Tuesday night. Grapes are badly injured, potatoes cut nearly to the ground and early beans destroyed The prospect for a good wheat crop in Scott county was never better than at present. The weather has been good for farm work, and many farmers are nearly done planting corn. The average will be 10 per cent, more than last year. COI.UMUUH, O.. May 7.—No serious results to fruit prospects in the immediate vicinity of Columbus are reported. A Lima (O.) dispatch says it is thought early fruits are greatly damaged, 0 if not killed. At Washington Court House Tuesday night ice an eighth of an inch thick was formed. A prominent fruit grower says that the early cherries are all killed and that peaches, pears, apples and other fruits are bein«- greatly damaged, and one or two more frosts like that of last night will settle the fruit crop throughout that part of Ohio at least. INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., May -7. —An exceedingly low temperature prevailed Tuesday night. The strawberry crop is practically ruined and cherries, grapes and peaches suffered considerably, but the crops will not be a total failure. The extreme dryness of the season only saved the cro\ s from complete blight. Neither wheat, oats nor corn has been planted long enough to be affected, except that the cold weath erprevents it from sprouting.

In some particular localities it was heavier than others. The fruit trees will be the main sufferers, and of these peaches especially. The buds have been nipped and it is thought the crop will be greatly curtailed. The frost was not of sufficient weight to totally destroy the fruit. Farmers report that such vegetables as beans, tomatoes and potatoes have been greatly injured. FHANKFOKT, Ivy., May 7.—The gardens were seriously injured Tuesday night by the frost. Peaches and grapes were also damaged. There was some damage to wheat and corn. Ice was very cwamon in many places. The full extent of the damage cannot be estimated as yet, but it is serious. DKS MOIXKS, la., May 7. — Frosts have been prevalent in' Iowa for several nights, but Tuesday night the freeze was hardest and ice formed in many localities. Farmers in from the country say that the chief injury has been done to small fruit of the earlier varieties, such as cherries and plums. In southern Iowa, where vegetation is further advanced, considerable injury has been inflicted on the apple crop. The growing grain has not been affected. LEWES. Del., May 7.-The frost of Tuesday night in this vicinity was very severe on fruits and vegetables, Early Strawberries are probably killed. Apples, pears, cherries and plums are sup- posed'to be badly damaged and the few peaches'still remaining are doubtless injured. Early potatoes, beans and some other vegetables are janch cut.
