TAIXOTT. Agt. Isrwa Weather and Crop Bulletins. Tho following is tha report for last week: This has been (ho coldest August week experienced in Iowa within the past twenty years, tho avcrnga daily deficiency in temperature being about ten degrees. Light frosts arc reported as occurring in every disliict of the state on the 23d and 24tb inst , and nt numerous points on tho 22<l and 28th. The amount of sunshine was generally below normal. Very light prccipitntio/j is reported for all parts of the state, but tho amount is sufliciont. and in so mo localities tho prevalent humidity and cloudiness onused damage to grain in shocks and stacks. There has been no material dn .Tagc by frosts, only tho tenderest vcgotntion being injured in exposed localities. But the weather hns been unfavorable for maturing corn, about thirty per cent, of which is too far behind to ripen under normal woather conditions in Iho coming month. Two to throo weeks of favorable wenthor will plncu the bulk of the crop beyond danger. Potatoes are gomirnily doing wtll, but a tendency to rot hns been caused by execssiro moisturo in a few places."

Armstrong & Hotter. This firm commenced business here some eight years since in face of lather strong competition, and when other exclusive clothing dealers had failed and the general stores all carrying more or loss olothlng. Mr. Armstrong -acknowledged by all to b« an expert In this line of trade—alter looking over the ground carefully saw no reason why Postvillo, with such a grand terrl tory, could not support a Urst-clws olothlng house, and so formed a partnership with Mr. Holter,—who baa almost grown up among us—and by their united push and energy, good judgment, sqnaro and honorable treatment and judicious advertising they uow have an excellent trade from all parts of this and the adjoining: ooun ties, and cairy a stock which very few large city stores can excel. There is nothing made too good for tbsra to bay and you oan always rely upon every artlele being just as represented and the prices the lowest. Mr. Holter la In Chicago this week with Mr. Armstrong selsotlng the bal ance of tboir fall and winter stock which will be larger than ever before, and before making any purchases in this line wo advise yon to oaH and The Iowa Homestead Is of tho opinion that the crop estimates are largely overdrawn, nnd that the country has not produced much more than an average crop, and that corn cannot come up la an average, even If It is allowed to ripen. In this section of lowi there is certainly more than an averago crop of all the small grains, and if corn ripens there will be more than an average crop of that grain, though there is still great doubt about tho entiro crop maturing. We bavo been dangerously near frost for some time aud nt this writing Ihore seorrs to bo no prospect of a warm wave. However we hopo for tho best; and with this crop secured no better prospect has ever been apparent in northern Iowa. Good prices are inevitable, and good t'mss must bo the resnlt. Harvest Excursions.

The Standard with its almost noiseless shuttle, which turns round like a wheel, with no stop or jar motion; its great speed; its perfect ease in operation; its perfect tension and elastic stitch; its powerful feed; with its Steel Set of Foot Attachments, combined with its great simplicity and almost endless durability makes it by far the Best and Cheapest sewing maohine in the world, and no one should think of buying a sewing maohine without investigating the principles of the Standard Rotary Shuttle and giving the machine a trial.
