The weather wfta delightful both days aftd the crowds larger than ever before. Thursday was given to judging the exhibits and viewing them in the morning. In the afternoon a free-for-all race showed some good, speed, aad a tunning race between three hofses owned by O. A. Potters Sam. Squires, and John Halnes made amusement. Driving and carriage horses were also exhibited and premiums awarded. Friday morning a new crowd thronged the buildings and stalls. In the afternoon the best races were given. The novelty race had ten entries, and proved the most exciting one of all. The winner was a fast trotter known as the old Kuhn horse, which trotted faster than It ran. The trotting race was the best contested one seen on the track In years, and had four entries. The trot for three-year-olds had two Wadsworth colts and S. Mayne's stallion. The latter won the flrst heat, but T. H. Wadsworth's mare got the other two. There was no trouble in getting the races started, no grumbling^ nnd a general feeling of satisfaction. The reporter made It an object to inquire the opinions of visitors from all parts, and all agreed that it was the best fair all around yet given in the county, Tlio Exhibits.

In horses the number of colts "was larger. Ingrains and vegetables the display was smaller, and without excuse. The fruit exhibit was a surprise to everyone. There were nine displays, and finer apples Were never shown anywhere. Mr. King, father of Mrs. Alonzo Clarke, who was visiting from Wisconsin, said he had never seen anything better, and that was the comment everywhere. Thero were 16 varieties of large apples named, and six varieties of crabs. AMONG THE HOGS.

It Is generally talked that the" county's horses are getting so well bred and competition Is so close that the fair ought to have an expert ludge from outside. It would cost llttly, and give more satisfactory results. Ed. Johnson of Sherman hod the pre WOOD It is the Cheapest Fuel.

The addition of the Barclay exhibit from West Liberty helped to make tho display a fine one, and one that would compare favorably with those at the state fair. IN THE SHEEP PENS. For sheep eight new pens were built by the association, and filled. Tbe exhibit included an Oxford Down buck brought from Illinois by Petor Walker, an imported Shropshire with full pedigree by A, L. Belton, and n very fine buck owned by Will. King. Lambs and ewes of every variety were present Mann Bros, making a fine exhibit. THE STOCK EXHIBIT. The cattle exhibit was conspicuous by the fine display of Short-horns made by C. S.'Barclay of West Liberty. He has been a yearly exhibitor at the state lair and the Chicago fat stock show for twelve years, and is one of the fanciest breeders of the state. His twelve head ol fine cattle attracted attention for their beauty, and served also to set off J. B. Jones large herd of Short-horns which stood next. Allowing for smoother looks, owing to higher feed, the outside cattle showed no better points than the Prairie Lawn herd, a fact which the farmers generally conceded. The actual comparison showed that our Kossuth county Short-horns are blocky and well bred cattle, and that we have the foundation of as good stock as the fancy breeders. Had tho outside cattle been admitted to competition, it was the general opinion that Mr. Jones would have got his share of premiums. Myron Schonck's Red Polled bull and five calves made a fine showing. Although the calves were from ordinary cows of all colors, they all had the solid color of tho sire and also had no horns, showing the strong blood of this breed. The Jersey display hod some fine samples of the fu- rnous Richardson herd. A full-blood Holstein bull, some fine grades, and other full-blood Short-horns, noted in the premium list, filled out the display. THE HORSES. The Improvement in the county in horses in late yeurB was fully illustrated by the exhibit. In road stallions there were Wadsworth Bros. 1 "Prin- ceptor"and "Exile," S. Mayne's fine Hambletonian three-year-old, and E. E. Walte's standard-bred three-year-old. The colts showed what some of these horses have done already and will do in the future. The draft stallions of the county were not so fully' represented, but the draft colts showed what is being done in improved breeding. The colt display was tho best thus far made, and speaks for some horses worthy of the highest price in any market. POULTIW. The poultry exhibit had two features not to be seen anywhere else. One was the famous gobbler, owned by J. A. Kennedy, which drove a hen off her nest, sat on the eggs and hatched out a brood of chickens. He was present with his brood, and the truth of the story is vouched for beyond question. Another was a turkey gobbler, owned by J. H. McMann, which had a tuft of feathers on its head. This is a curious freak of nature, and rarely seen. The whole exhibit of fowls was fine, the names of the. varieties and exhibitors appearing in the premium list. IN GENERAL. The ladies' department, as usual, was filled with paintings, embroideries, and fancy articles enumerated in the premium list. Among the merchants' exhibits were Robinson's and Winkio Bros.' display of stoves. J. B. "Winkel showed his Domestic machines, Frank Bros, made an elegant display of furs, and J, F, Nicoulin nad a fine frame of photographs. The largest display of carriages and wagons ever made were put in by Bradley & Nicoulin, and A. M. & G. M. Johnson. Hohn'e broom factory had a display of fine brooms. Some essays, original stories, maps, etc., made up the educational exhibit. In grains und vegetables some very fine specimens wore exhibited, and corn was plenty. In all the other departments there were specimens of Interest to tho crowd and a promise of what IB possible Iti the county.

Jos. Thompson added to the entertainment of the fair by putting his cider press on the grounds aad dispensing good, fresh apple juice. Copt. Dodgo feels well pleased over the first fair under his management, and well ho may. So may the rest of the officials and directors. The rldlog of the Misses Coffen and Dell Richardson was an attractive feature of Friday's exercises. They are all experts. Mr. Barclay sold seven or eight of his full-blood Poland Chinas to our farmers. Among others D. Rico got a couple. D. S. Miller carried off the honors for big apples. One measured 14 Inchon around. It was a "Wolf River." Secretary Sessions Is paying premiums in full. Read over the list and come in and get your money. A. H. Durant capped the fruit display with a large, fine, ripe pear raised In his garden. • Other Tarm Notes. The state horticultural society sends us a circular which says: " We consider the tree blackberry a fraud, and the apricot, prunus Slmonll, Salome apple, and Kelffer pear too tender for general planting In the state of Iowa. As wo know of no stocks hardy enough to endure this climate, we condemn the propagation of apple trees by budding, and believe the union of stock and clon should be beneath the surface to obtain hardy trees." This warning Is against traveling frauds, and Is sent out to fruit growers for their protection. LuVerne claims the boss tuber. The News says: Henry Ford brought in a potato one day this week that for size is a buster and no mistake. It measures 10 Inches in length, and its shortest circumference Is 16 inches and its longest circumference 20 inches. It weighs pounds, and Si* feplsoop^l 6l6fgfyni<Sn in- OlftiUng Bishop i?e*ry bl DavettpBft wefts present. This laying of the Corner stone waS included in the interesting exercises Of the tod days meeting of the fiplscopal diocese which has Just been held in Algeria, tfhe spot chosen for the Episcopal chapel is as central ahd pleasant as could be desired. A goodly number assembled 6t the spot where the chapel is to be erected at S o'clock, and the exercises consisted of singing, responsive service, and the address of Blshbp Perry which was very interesting, both on account of the thought it contained ahd the manner oi delivery. The Bishop. said hot long since it was his pf iVftiege to speak in the Episcopal church in Canterbury, England, a church which dated back twelve hundred years, and beneath this structure were traces of a Still older church which had been erected in the time of Roman rule. The same creed, the same liturgy, had given strength and inspiration to worshipers during all these centuries. The bishop dwelt especially upon the historic value of the Episcopal church. The first Episcopal church erected in the United States was founded'upon the sterile coast of Maine thirteen years before tho Pilgrims landed at Plymouth. The. Episcopal church was the church of Washington, the church of most of those who signed the Declaration of Independence, and the church of most of those who framed the federal constitution more than 100 years ago. That the policy of this church has not been outgrown and superseded is manifest when we consider that the able Congregational clergymen chosen not many years slnco to revise tho creed of the church, recommended that the Apostle's creed be made the creed of the Congregational churches in admitting members to their fellowship, and in many of tho leading Congregational churches the Apostle's creed is now in use. John Wesley without withdrawing from the Episcopal church, we believe, made it possible through his departure in methods, for the mighty force of Methodism to take root ana expand and grow into tho vast power which it today is in the world. There aro men today in the Episcopal church whose far reaching wisdom and strength IK* tiay any debts tioniracted by him. 27t2 L. MANSMitH. flf ASD ABOPf MJB Glff.

Afeol quantity of hogs brought $4, wheat has been above 85 cents for a month, and hay was last week $8.50 and $4 loose. We shall have no further discussion with the News. We have shown what everyone has begun to find out that it was started to slander Algona and Work up a tittle feeling of spite in the county. It has fizzled in the attempt, and Will fizzle itself, for it does not represent the better sentiment of Lu Verne. A paper which will not even notice a county fail* because it is held at the County seat, is too small potatoes for a progressive community like Kossuth. The .Bancroft Register shows tbe proper spirit itt noticing the high prices paid at Algona: " We want to see tbe dealers all over tho county paying up to close margin of the market and let their small profit on a car-load bo increased by its multiplicity of car-loads to make them a good remuneration on their investments. Let's have good markets everywhere, and we invite the public to keep its eye on the Bancroft quotations." Bancroft is a good market town. So is Wesley, Lu Verne, Whittemore. Burt, and Irvlngton. From a careful comparison of prices wo believe nil of them tiro outbidding outside places,Chicago markets show a decline since lost weeK, especially in hogs, flax, and hay.

An important addition to county stock that wo have failed to note is a full- blood, high-bred buck brought from the state fair by Dougal Wallace. He was not exhibited last week, but is a fine animal.

Joseph Zanke gets $272 for the flax on 17 acres of land. are felt in every great issue which demands the attention of our time. Such men are Rev. Phillip Brooks, Rev. Hefer Newton, und Bishop Huntlngton of New York, formerly one of tho bright lights in tho Unitarian denomination. These men not only follow history, but create history, nnd so we find them mingling freely in tho services of other churches. Rev. Phillip Brooks took an active part in tho services in the Plymouth Congregational church when Rev. Lyman Abbott was ordained pastor. Tho Congregational clergymen of Boston have quite recently invited Episcopal, Unitarian, and Baptist clergymen to address them and take friendly counsel together. The Episcopal church, because of its pride of history, has sometimes been considered conservative, but tho ringing sentences of Rev. Hefer Newton recently delivered, would place her in tho front ranks radicalism, a church not looking backward alone for Its history but forward. • " What tho church today requires is more brave, fearless champions, men humanity better than gold, fashion, or luxury; who will engage in the battle along the lines Christ laid down; who will pay less attention to externallsm and more to tho needs of humanity at the present time. The wealthy citizens who bribe their way into omco; tho millionaire stock gamblers whoso fortunes rest on the ruins of countless lives; the proprietors of gilded saloons; the despoilers of homes; tho fashionable butterfly, whoso selfish life knows as little of real soul culture as it knows of the grinding want and misery which is everywhere calling so pathetically for relief and sympathy; these and kindred classes In our congregations never tire of hearing Pilate berated or Judos condemned. But when a true reformer appears who is bravo, conscientious, able, and manly enough to do precisely what their Master did. he cannot count on a solid phalanx behind him." May the Episcopal chapel to bo erected ip Algona enter worthily Into all the inheritance of a grand past, and work out worthily the inheritance of a grand future. c. A i. Oysters.

THE BEPUBLIOAN WILL DODGE. It Dare Xot Dpuy That It linn'Taken Subscribers at T5 Cents a Year. The Republican Indulges in u dishonest evasion of the charge thut U is now being sent to subscribers in the county for 75 cents u year with a map of lowu thrown in. Wo have no desire to discuss tho matter, but wo stato positively that wo can prove thut tho Republican is being so sent, and thut tbe Republican dare not squarely deny it, Tho Hopublieun dare not come out und stake its reputation for honesty on the flat statement that subscribers tire not now getting it at those terms.
