Renew:—A phenomenal season is ono in which something unusual occurs in tho weather, aside from what we generally expect. Ono or two illustrations will serve te show my mtaning: Thirty-six years ago wo had one of the longest and loylioat Indian summers in northern Illinois I ever saw. The ground did not freeze up till near Christmas, when it became intensely cold, with heavy snow, and temained so till Jan. 25th, when it thaved, and with an atmosphere like May; farmers plowed for four weoks. This was phenomenal, but it was a fact, for I was "in it." On Feb. 20th, 1877, I picked sonio snowdrops on tho sonlh side of Mr. Kovnnig'* grove, from an angle of a rail fence, and showed ihem to the folks at home. That was the winter of the diphtheria -we all ramber it; when the bottom seemed to go out of tho roads entirely, and horses had a rest.. A phenomenal season Is generally a good one for crops, but hard on children and the aged, according to the saying that "a green Christmas makes a fat churchyard." Three years ago this month the dust lay four inehes deep on tho wagon roads at Cedar Rapids and two inches hero. I quoted at tho time to a friend that "a pound of March dust was worth a king's ransom." The immense crops that followed told the story. The phenomenal howtrs in Kansas last season gave h#r yield of wheat that was almost a burdon to her. Naturo is fairly bulg- ng with freaks in such seasons. The country around Cherokee was deluged witk rain and ravaged with storm last summer, while we had not wind enough to disturb the perpondicular of our corn. Last August we had light frost, while September for the first time in tho mamory of anyone, went out without a visible frost. On the 7th and 8th of this month the sun shone out clear and hot, the mareury going up to to •10° in the shade, (1 saw a nwarm of Hies sporting in a sheltered corner.) next morning by 10 o'clock a good old style blizzard was pulling in its work at the rato of ninety miles an hour, ith tho mercury down to zero at night. It is curious to nolo that soasons go in pairs. If wc have ono drouth ^season we are sure lo havo another following, ml so of goed seasons and oxtra good casons. This is almoBt an invariable ule, yet why it is is yet beyon.1 human penetration. J. DUKXO. Blacksmith and Wagon Shop.

Last Friday afternoon Uayor MuNeil received a despatch from tlio mayor of Council Bluffs statiug that a majority of mayors throughout the state had been telegraphed lo to send delegates to an anti-prohibition convention lo be held at Dos Moines on the Monday following 'or the pnrposo of presenting Iho necessities of tho case to the legislature and attempting to induce the house to reeonsider and pass tho Gateh bill, or to give some other measure of relief before the adjournment of the legislature In view of this fact the mayor called an impromptu meeting at Ihe hook and ladder houso the same evening to decide what, if anything, should bo done. A goodly number were in attendance, including some of our most prominent prohibitionists, and it was decidod to send a delegate, and a pur so of $10 was raised to defray the expenses. Mayor McNeil was unanimously chosen as such delogato, and he left for DesMoines on a Sunday evening freight, arriving there Monday morning. The notice being so short there was not as general a response as there ought to have been to have accomplished anything. Howevor the convention was organized and a committee appointed to meet a republican caucus of the house on Monday evening, when a set of resolutions was presented to the caucus, sotting forth the eondition of affairs in those seelions of the state where prohibition is not and cannot be enforced, and asking for relief. The decision of the caucus was that the republican mombers of the house were elected on the Cedar Rapids platform, which promised that prohibition should stand, and. consequently they could do nothing,to impair the law. This is just what wo were confident would bo tho result;,and wo should have bean disappointed had it been otherwise. The prohibitionists are bound to die in the last ditch, and just whore they are now. The upas of unenforoed prohibition mist bo ovor tho ata^o .two years more, and by that time there will not bo enough republicans left, on stats Issues, to hold a respectable eon- vonllon. There is hope of holding the party together long enough to save tho presidential and congressional election next fall, but after that there Is no "light iu tho window." —Cbas. V.
