The rainfall was generally sullicieut for tho needs of all crops. On the night of the llth a severe wind squall, with considerable rain and light streaks of hail swept diagonally from X. W. to R. E. through the central counties. Corn and oats were considerably flattened, and some damage was done to light buildings. Tho crops, however, have mostly straightened up and the damage will be light. Corn has made rapid growth during the week, and the crop is generally clean. Kust in oats is tho burden of complaint in many localities. Potatoes aro doing well.

Old Days in England. Without going further back than tho reign of Charles II, writes Meredith Jackson, in a charming papor in the August "Peterson," it can be 'announced as a general rule that tho furniture of palaces and the houses of the nobility consisted chiefly of pieces transmitted from generation to generation along with tho landed estates, and belonging iu great part to the Elizabethan epoch and thai of James 1, with some acquisitions from abroad, brought home by ancestors who bad traveled. On tho other hand, eommercii with France, chiefly under Leuis XIV, had iiilro- ducod a small number of Parisian bits of furniture from tho workshops of leading French artisans. tu the houses of the middle classes, on tho contrary, only tho simplo and common oak furnitiiro of tho time of James II was to be seen: cliaits, chests, bureaus, and ward.tobos, often of clumsy pattern, tho like of which aro still manufactured in certain remote loual- ities of conservative Ekgland.
