owner in Mexico, fought one of the
strangest duels on record. . While at a
ball a few days ago, given at Tampico
by one of tbe chief ladies of the Spanish
colony, the two gentlemen quarreled in
the presence of a lady and Victoria chal
lenged Pedraza. As Fed raze had choice
of weapons, he demanded that Victoria
meet him in a dark room where should be
placed a hundred tarantulas of most
poisonous character, and that each should
devote his energies to killing tarantulas
instead of fighting bis oppocent, and
neither must leave tbe room till all the
poisonous spiders were killed. The duel
was fought in n room dark as dungeon.
There were no seconds, and no one in
Tampico suspected the fact. When the
doors were broken open both men were

. The report of the department of agri
culture at Washington, D. C, is as fol
lows: Cereals The prospect a month ago
was for a very heavy crop of corn, and
the rate of yield about the average. Its
condition in all the states of the Atlantic
coast js now Unimpaired, and of a very
high promise. ; In Texas and Tennessee
the condition has declined materially.
The past month has been favorable for
cotton, except that the rainfall has been
unequally distributed in point of time -a
drouth threatened at one period and
damaging floods following. In tho east
ern belt the excels of moisture predoml
pntes at a factor of the depreciation. The
Veed is, therefore lareJanuTirppy, and
the fruit fall appears in some fields seri
ously, and in some cases rust appears. In
Louisiana similar conditions have pre
vailed, and only very partially in Missis
sippi. ; Texas has been too dry, though
the drouth has not as yet been disastrous
or severe. The prevalent status of the
crop it very good for the first of August,
while reporters recognize this as a criti-.
cat time, and fear the effect ot subsequent
drouth upon the green and succulent con
dition of the plant. In a comparison of
ten years, the August condition is only
exceeded by that of 1882 aod 1885, one
producing a large crop, the Other under
a medium yield. The general average
condition ia 93.3, which is lower by three
points than that of July. The stato tiver
ages are: Virginia, 94;JNorth Carolina,
9ft ; South Carolina, 95; Georgia,
94 ; Florida, 90 ; Alabama, 93;
Mississippi, 90; Louisiana, 94; Texas,
87 J Arkansas, 0? ; Tennessee, 95.

is In high Condition in seed, the leaf

tricts of the West make in unprecedented
report of low condition; Tennessee, 70:

A few days ago, the rice plantters
long tbe Savannah river were hopeful
of the best crops for years, and in one
day their lands are overrun with water
and the prospect is utter ruin of the crops.
From the city of Savannah, Ga., up tbe
river towards Augusta there is the
Charleston bridge of the C. A 8. Road.
Three miles this aide of tbe bridge ia the
Little Vernezebre creek. Before the
Savannah river reaches this creek it di
vides and runs into two narrow streams
around Argyle Island, and, indeed, a ae
ries of islands. Tbe stream next the
Carolina shore is known as the Back
river, and fronting on this stream, both
from the Carolina shore and the islands
mentioned, are the great fields. In times
Of freshet the river rises over the low,
swampy lands that lie on the Carolina
banks of tbe Back riVef and are above
Vernezebre creek. Just this aide ot the
creek begin the rice plantations. Vern
ezebre freshet bank waa built 85 year
sgo. It runs back inland from the Back
river and at right angles to the river, and
is about 2 miles in length. Tbe Vern
ezebre freshet bank ia not s financial
institution, but it it a corporation with
president and other corporate officers,
who keep it up, and who aseta the plan
ters who are subjacent to it Thia bank
has nevet btfre been overflowed. It
was supposed to be 4 feet above the high
est freshet. The waters are .way above
it and bave rushed all over the rice fields
of the Carolina coasts. This means the
ruin of 9,000 acres of cultivated rice
Inn-i, which, at calculation of 40 bush
els to the acre, and a dollar and a quarter
to the buahelftneans a lost of about $430,
000, besides the immense damage to the
banks. Tbe rice is in condition when
water will ruin it Three-fourths of it
hat iust shot np and flowered. The rest
has headed and begun to fill. The water
will prevent the milk from rising from
the belly, and the rice will bo blighted.
