CHUBB HOW TO VOTE niGHT. The fact that the voters of Iowa will in the coming election for the first time cast thei'r ballots under the new election law makes necessary a full under standing of that law, in order that their ballots may be cast intelligently, and not thrown out as a result of theit having been improperly or incorrectly prepared. It cannot be assumed that even every intelligent man knows that he puts acorrect interpretation upon the new law after having read it. The law is a voluminous document, and we believe is not wholly free from ambiguity. This was to be expected in the preparation of a statute which was intended to radically revise a system which has been in use since the organization ol the state. There is no doubt that the people will eventually become familial with its workings, but that they are not now thus faraUar is equally certain. The Des Moines Register published an editorial recently in which the idea was advanced that the voter must check the name of every person for whom he •wished to vote. But this is not in accordance with previously expresset opinions, nor do we believe it corresponds with the understanding of the people generally throughout the state. We are not saying that the Register is not correct in its conclusion, and yet the section of the new law which covers this very point seems clear. * We give it herewith: " On receipt of his ballot the voter shall forthwith and without leaving the enclosec i space, retire alone to one of the voting booths so provided, and shall prepare his ballot by making in the appropriate mar gin or place a cross (X) opposite the name of the candidate of his choice for eace office to he filled, or by writing in the name of the candidate of his choice in a blank space on said ticket, making a cross (X) opposite thereto; and in case of a question submit ted to a vote of the people by making in the appropriate margin or place a cross (X against the answer he desires to give; pro vided, however, if he shall desire to vote for all the candidates of one political part.y or group of petitioners, he may place such mark at the appropriate place preceding the appellation or title under which the names of the candidates of such party, or group of petitioners are printed; and the ballots so marked shall be counted as ens for all the candidates named, after that ti tie; provided, further, that the voter may place such mark at the appropriate place preceding the appellation or title of any one party or group of petitioners, and may also mark at the appropriate space preceding the name or names of one or more candi dates printed under the appellation or title of some other party, or group of petitioners and a ballot so marked shall be counted as cast for all candidates named under the ap pellation or title which has been so marked except as to the officers to which he has placed such mark preceding the name 01 names of some other candidate .or candidates printed under the title of some othei party or group of petitioners, and as to such it shall be counted as cast for the candidate or candidates preceding whose name or names such mark may have been placed. Before leaving the voting booth the votei shall fold his ballot in such manner as to conceal the marks thereon. The number ol the voter on the poll books or register list shall not be endorsed on the back of his ballot. He shall mark and deposit his ballot •without undue delay, and shall quit said enclosed space as soon as he has voted." As was intimated, this paper is not setting itself up as an interpreter of laws. And yet the point that seems plain to the reader of average intelligence is that the voter who desires to cast his ballot for all the nominees of one party can accomplish this by simply making a X in the circle heading the ticket; if he wants to vote substantially a straight ticket, but for some individual on another, he marks the circle of one and the individual names on another. If this is correct the exercise of the voter's prerogative is a simple matter, and it is not necessary to make a X opposite the name of every person for whom he wishes to cast his vote. Of course the chief thing is to cast the ballot in such a manner that the judges of election can easily understand what the intention of the voter is. This can be done in the manner indicated, and this plan is the one which is generally accepted in this part of the state as correct, and those who are assuming to give instruction as to voting are doing so on this basis. It is the easy and simple way, and one which need cause no confusion among judges of election when they come to count the votes. r WHAT IT MEANS. It is an insult to an intelligent people to say that republican papers are not anxious to have the new election law explained, and are trying to keep the voters in the dark and uninformed in order to whip republicans into line -and cajole them into voting the straight ticket. It is a presumption 'upon the intelligence of the republicans of this county when a democratic organ makes and repeats substantially this statement, and a presumption tha is not warranted by the facts. It say in effect that the republicans of Kos suth county are a lot of ignofatnuse who cannot understand anything ex cept such pabulum as comes from t democratic sheet, and we very tnucl mistake the temper of the republican of this county if they do not resent tha imputation at the polls next Tuesday. This paper hopes every man in thi county who votes at all will do so intel ligently. There is no shot-gun policy in the north, no rotten-egg campaigns and ho methods of interference with the political rights of the people There is absolutely nothing to preven a voter from exercising all the right guaranteed him under the constitution This being so every man is entitled tc cast his vote in accord with his own no tion, and it will be properly counted Will anybody urge that, democrats and democratic papers are not demanding the members of their party to vote their ticket straight? By no means And the same reasons which are ad vanced for this apply with equal forci to republicans. This paper would no urge a vote for any man who is known to be unworthy, but other things being equal—and no one questions the state ment that they are equal this year i they ever were—we regard it the dutj of every republican to stand by his or ganination and cast his vote for every man on the republican ticket. This means the strengthening of party or ganization, without which no man wh believes in the principles of republi canism can hope to see anything ac complished on the line of policy which the party is working. Unless all signs are wrong there nev er was a year when the republicans o Kossuth county were so thoroughlj united as now. The local dissention which have, unfortunately, worked tc the injury of the party in this county in other years, are wholly buried and lost sight of, and the methods fdr mis chief making which have worked with more or less success at other time; seem to come to the ground this yea: with very much of the dull thud sound It indicates that the republicans an taking counsel of their good sens< rather than from democratic paper who plead the baby act in order to gain votes from the ranks of their oppo nents. FOR CAMPAIGN PURPOSES. One would surmise from the wai that goes up from ouV democratic con temporary, in speaking of the tariff on binding twine, that the seven-tenths o a cent a pound tariff on that article wa the cause of all the misfortunes tha come to the American farmer. Witl the shrewdness of a pettifogging law yer it carefully avoids stating how much that tariff is, but leaves the 'im pression that no other feature of th tariff law is quite so pernicious as this And, incidentally, Congressman Dol liver is largely responsible for it When Ryan goes to congress he wil vote to remove that seven-tenths of a cent a pound tariff on binding twine which costs, to the. farmer who raise ten acres of grain, about 25 cents, anc for 100 acres about $2.40! What calamity shrieker the Courier is, any way. __^^______ HOMESTEAD TROUBLES. Whoever deludes himself with the notion that the troubles at Homesteac are at an end will sooner or later fine out his mistake. Four thousand work men in a body, all out of employment need not be expected to sit idly by and see their places filled by others, and non-union men at that. Whether they are right or wrong is a question that will not be settled by newspaper discussion. The fact remains that they are there, and are out of work, at least upon the terms demanded by them. They have held out for some months. To yield now would not only add humiliation to defeat, but would mean the to tal abandonment of their organization, which is the rock upon which they lave founded their strongest hope. They are martyrs to their cause, and no amount of reasoning has thus far lad any effect with them. It .Is to be assumed that they believe their cause to be founded on justice, and with that view propose to hold out until they eventually win the day. The Carnegie managers give out the statement and make the claim that their mills are all running and at near- y their full capacity; that they experience no difficulty in securing all the non-union men they want, and are able .0 get along very well without refer- mce to the amalgamated association, low nearly true this statement is may be determined by the numerous dis- >atches that have lately come from Homestead detailing the accounts of 'iolence done by union men. One of he latest reads: " Lawlessness continues on the increase. Several non-unionists were assaulted in daylight today, and crowds which defied he force of deputy sheriffs gathered in a hort time and carried matters with a high laud. It appears that spies watch the movements of the deputy sheriffs and the moment they are away make a sudden on- laught on the residences and persons of on-union men. It has been decided to in- rease the force of night deputies to fifty if -ood meixcan be found, and if not the orough rimy again be placed under mar- iallaw. The mills are operating as usual, hough several thousand workmen thovo re alannedwer the disorders and many ay they willHeave sooner than take chances f being killed\ They look upon the as- aults as the las N t resort of the beaten men." That undoubtedly expresses the true condition of things at Homestead, in the language of President Harrison "it is a condition and not a theory, and one that must be met by som_ remedy more heroic than any that has yet been applied before a final adjust ment of the troubles will be had. A prominent man who visited Hoinestea a few weeks ago said that all was quie there and would be so long as the sol diers remained, but that another out break would occur as soon as the troop were withdrawn. The course of event proves that he knew what he was say ing. The troops afe gone, ahd Violenc is the order of the day. It is time something was done. If w are to say that capital may organize fo its own protection then we must gran that labor is entitled to the same right But this right does not carry with i the license to attack with violenc those men who desire to work but ar not members of the union. As matter now stand the Pennsylvaniaauthoritie will have to keep an army of troops a Homestead or else the men who under take to work in those mills will be de prived of the protection which is guar anteed by the commonwealth, and law lessness will take the place of order am anarchy the place of law. If anybody \vants to know why thi south was in favor of a tariff for revenu only before the war, it is only necessary t read what ex-Gov. Bullock of Georgia, an ex-confederate soldier, says: "The sout before the war owned labor that cost noth ing and the slave owners had the capital t run their plantations and put their prod ucts upon the world's market. That wa the reason why the south was for fre trade and incorporated free trade in th confederate constitution. They could com pete with the world with their unpaid labor They have been loth to relinquish free trad because the negro labor of the south is stil very cheap. If the secession effort had sue ceeded the south would have had debasec servile, cowed and cheap labor, but coul only have exchanged its plantation product and raw materials for the manufacture articles of other countries." The millenium is near at hand when " Brick" Pomeroy announces that he wil vote the republican ticket. This statement concerning the Me Kinley bill is attributed to Gov. Flower o New York: "Take my county—Jefferson The farmers have been benefitted by thi measure and they know it. The increase tariff has withdrawn the Canadian compe tition, and today they are getting bette prices than in a good many years. It wi; be useless to bring any argument in ou district that the McKinley bill does no benefit the farmers, for it does and the fact bear it out. There is no use of a democra trying to get an office in that district on that issue, for it is a dead one." The Carroll Sentinel nails to its mast head a flag which reads: "Cleveland am Victory." We have been thinking for som time that Stevenson wasn't in it. MacVeagh is in hard luck. Afte: transferring his affections from the republi can to the democratic party with a flop, thi suddenness of which has given him no em of free advertising, here comes Senate Hill and says that MacVeagh is " a self righteous reformer and not worthy to bore ceived into the democratic party and shoulc be repudiated." The way of the reforme: is hard this year. The Sioux City Journal aptly re marks that " Egan stands pat." The biggest beer combination evei formed in this country was effected las' week in Milwaukee by the consolidation er the Pabst Brewing company with Falk Jung, and Borchen & Co. Now the demo crats have a genuine grievance, and o: course they will blame it all to the McKin ley bill. _ Any statement made by Elaine is significant. The Inter-Ocean's Washington special says: Ex-Secretary Elaine shares the enthusiasm of the republicans at the prospect of republican success. He said to a friend today: "Harrison will carry Indiana, and he will be elected, I do not base my opinion as to republican sue cess in Indiana upon my own impressions. [ have it as the judgment of an eminent democrat who is familiar with the situation." "As to New York," said Mr, 31aiue, " the registration would seem to indicate enormous possibilities of democratic 'raud, but the reports from the interior of the state are favorable, and I should think ,hat the chances of republican success in yew York state are at least even. But I am sure that Harrison is to be elected. He has been gaining very much in the last month," THE MONTH'S MAGAZINES. Mr. George Edward Woodberry, in his admirable paper on John Greenleaf Whit- ier, has contributed perhaps the ablest jritical review on Whittier's place in litera ure which either has appeared or will ap pear; and as is fitting in tho pages of the Atlantic, to which Whittier has been so con- tant a contributor, Dr, Holmes has con- ributod a poem in his memory. The feel- vhich the autocrat shows in these verses is o real that one forgets their poetic form, and they seem but the natural outpouring f the affection of abrother poet. Elizabeth Stuart Phelps has also a touching poem on tVhittier. which was written as ho lay dying. A short story in two parts by Mar- -aret Collier Graham, called " The With- ow Water Right;" chapters of Mr. Craw- prd's "Don Orsino;" an able unsigned po- itical essay on " The Two Programmes of 892," are among the other attractions of he number. Hough ton, Mifflin & Co., Boston. Scribner's Magazine for November con- aius the second of its group of preliminary rticles on " The World's Fair," this one oing an account of Chicago's part in the vorld's fair, by Franklin MaoVeagh, one f the prominent citizens of Chicago, who vvites about the enterprise without any bias. fraitfdy stating that he "has no con nection with the world's fair management.' His account of what Chicago has accomplished is a wonderful record of enter prise and successful achievement. He shows how that city has shouldered respon sibilities which belonged to the United States government commission; how she has supplied $11,000,000 instead of the five th'at it was expected she would furnish how She has arranged a site for the fair which in extent, situation, plan, and adorn ment exceeds anything ever before attempted, and that she has provided buildings equally remarkably in size, variety, anc artistic value. -n- The November Century is the first mini her of the forty-fifth volume and of the twenty-third year of this magazine, which while preserving the general characters tics which have given it vogue-is stricking out freshly into new paths. The frontis piece is the portrait of an American o whom his countrymen have reason to be proud—the historian Francis Parkinan— and the completion of Mr. Parkman's series of historical narratives on the French pow er in North America is further accentuated by two short articles by Mr. Lowell (an un finished sketch) and by Dr. Edward Eggles ton, both of whom lay stress upon the im portance of this work. Articles which strike into the midst of current discussion are " Plain Words to Workingmen," by one of them, Fred. Woodrow; "Does the Bible Contain Scientific Errors?" by Prof. Chas W. Shields of Princeton: and " Some Ex position Uses of Sunday," by Bishop Potter, etc. i > St. Nicholas begins a new volume—the 20th—with the November number, and i fortunate enough to have nn exquisite poem by Whittier to show at the threshold. Kate Douglas Wiggin begins a serial in St Nicholas for November. It is a bright and wholesome story, called " Polly Oliver's Problem." The opening chapters turn upon Polly's declaration that the " board ers must go I" and upon her forecasting as to what shall take the place of the in come which also must go when the board ers go. The story has hardly an unneces sary word in these opening chapters, am promises to be delightful, especially for the girl readers of St. Nicholas. IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD. An Emmetsburg merchant lately be $10 againstSl that no pearl buttons an made in Iowa. A festive traveling man will take in that $10. The B., C. R. & N. company is build ing an immense brick chimney for the shops at Estherville. It is to be 52 fee high and 6x8 feet on the ground. The Emmetsburg Democrat says tha Alex. Younie of West Bend is working up quite a reputation as an attorney Of late he lias been trying three or foui important cases. Frank Scribner of Britt met with a serious accident last Saturday while at tending to his horses. One of them kicked him in the face, knocking ou one of his teeth and otherwise bruising his face. Gov. Boies wants ?3,000 from tho tax payers of Palo Alto county for thepriv ilege of running a much-needed road across 80 acres of his land. So it seems that Iowa farm lands are really worth something after all. Estherville Republican; The Em met county people, regardless of parti prejudices, can't help but smile at the idea of land-agent Jimmy Ryan trying to run against Dolliver for congress Half of Mr. Ryan's speeches are made up of apologies for his being in the field. Estherville Republican: Workmen on the Armstrong extention of the B. C. R. & N. say the track will be laic into Armstrong by Dec. 1 if the weath er holds good, and that grading will be all completed by Nov. 15. The track is now about twenty miles from Armstrong. Corwith Crescent: One of the Welty triplets at Britt, the boy, died last Mon day and one of the girls is very sick, not expected to live. These little mites were thought a great deal of. Having been left motherless at birth, they have been made the special care of kind friends and last fair time were the picture of health, as they were driven about the fair grounds. SAID OF WM. WAED. A Writer Pays a Fine Tribute to His Memory. Writing of the death of Win. Ward, which occurred at Garner last week, a correspondent of the State Register says: A good man is gone. Mr. Ward was born in Bradford county, Pennsylvania, April 20, 1840. Moved to Jo Davis county, Illinois, in 1850 with his parents. He then lived near Oskaloo- safor a short time, and in 1860 entered Knox college, Galesburg, 111. After attending four years his health failed, when he came to Kossuth county, Iowa, where he married Miss Helen Chapin and lived on a farm eight miles north of Wesley until two years ago. A family of five daughters, his wife and aged mother, as well as three brothers and ihree sisters survive him and mourn lis death. His death is of far more ;han a local loss, for his reputation as a 'ecturer and scholar, a geologist, as- irbnomer and archeologist extends all )ver northern Iowa, and none who ever istened to one of his inimitable lectures but will join in words of praise in ulogizing him as a gentleman, a Christian and a scholar. It was to Wm. Ward we were indebted for our first knowledge of the geological formations of northern Iowa, and many scientific irticles from his pen have appeared in .he Algona UPPER DES MOINES, as veil as the best scientific papers of the and. He was very much interested in he geological survey of Iowa that is to >e made, and had helived his papers and lotes kept for the past 22 years would lave proved of incalculable value to the tate. Tho New Postal Cards. Some of the new postal cards are beginning to come west. They are unlike •nything that has over been gotten up iy the department before. They con- ist of two cards folded together so that hey may be torn apart. One card is or sending the message, while the lank card goes along, not being torn ff. The recipient of the message re^ eives both together, tears off the sec- nd card and uses it for sending his rely. The first card is labeled " Postal Jard With Paid Reply," and the other, Reply Postal Card." The two sell or two cents. FOB RENT—My farm of 160 acres in iuffalo township. Henry Kopi. THE WEEK IN POLITICS Hon. D. C. Chase Monday Evening— A Bad Night, and Yet a Fair-Sized Crowd. A Lively Campaign Being Made i the County This Week by Both Parties. Hon. D. C. Chase of Webster Cit; spoke on political issues at the cour house in Algona Monday evening During the afternoon of Monday drizzling rain set in, which t.-ontinuec until late into the night. For this rea son there were but few in from th country, and many in town who woul have attended under more favorabl circumstances were thus prevente from turning out. Those who were no there missed hearing one of the bes speeches of the campaign. Mr. Chas presented the issues from a republica point of view in a clear, forcible, an logical manner. He took up the var: ous questions which are at issue in th campaign and made a straightforwar argument for republican ideas and po icy which could not have failed to b convincing to those who are willing t give careful thought nnd consideratio to the propositions advanced by th two great political parties. He had n abuse for democrats, but fairly crit cised what they have clone as a part and what they propose to do as enui ciated in their platform. Mr. Chase : a pleasing and easy speaker, and hel the attention of his audience for a littl over an hour. He went to Des Moine yesterday, and spoke before the Tipp> canoe club in that city last night. The County Campaign. County Chairman Sessions has a ranged for a series of meeting throughout the county this week, to b addressed by local speakers. As el& tion day approaches the campaign ; warming up all along the line, and th interest which is being manifested i all quarters shows that the people ar alive to the impending issues and ar desirous of hearing them fully an freely discussed. The first of the series was held at L Verne last night and was addressed b A. A. Brunson and others. Mr Brunson opened with a talk of a hour and a half, in which he reviewe the acts of the democracy and dis cussed their promises for the future He is an old soldier, and while he rare ly refers to that fact, and carefull avoids any waving of the bloody shir' yet he has no political love for hi friends the enemy, and especially i this apparent when he is engaged i making a speech. He took up the tai iff question and showed the differenc of opinion which exists between th two parties, and why this is so. Th northern people are naturally in favo of protection; the free-trade notion come from those people of the sout who still retain their states' rights the cries, and are' fifty years behind thi progressive age. The money question reciprocity, the tin question, etc., cam in for a liberal share of attention. ~ was agreed on all hands that he made faithful and fair exposition of the is sues of this campaign, and was libera ly applauded at intervals, The audience was large and filled t the brim with enthusiasm. Good mu sic was furnished, and the meeting wa an acknowledged success. Other meetings will be held in th county according to the following pro gramme and will be addressed by thos whose names appear: Irvington, Nov. 2— J. R. Jones, E. B Butler, and C. B. Matson. Ledyard, Nov. 2— A. A. Brunson an W. B. Quarton. Whittemore, Nov. 3— A. A. Brunso and S. S. Sessions. Frink School House, Nov. 3— W. B Quarton and A. D. Clarke. Center School House, Seneca, Nov 3— S. Mayne and E. Tellier. Fisher School House, Riverdale, Nov 4 — A. A. Brunson and W. L. Joslyn. Wesley, Nov. 4—J. R. Jones and Geo W. Hanna. Several Algona people will attend these meetings and assist in furnishing music and enthusiasm. At Grover's School House. Eugene Tellier addressed an audi ence at the Grover school house las Saturday evening on the political is sues at which standing room was at premium. All agree that Mr. Tellier presented the issues ably and fairly and if he didn't make any converts he at any rate gave the people something- worth thinking about. It won't do to tell the Portland folks that Ryan needs bigger game than Tellier. They likec his talk and gave him a respectfu' hearing while he talked to them for an hour and forty.five minutes. If Hinchon's reporter was there he failed to materialize. Miss Chipman and others rendered several campaign songs that were in keeping with the spirit which prompted the meeting. Gen. Caldwell of Kansas. The last big republican meeting of ;he campaign in Kossuth comes Saturday evening of this week, at Algona, and is to be addressed by Gen. J. c.' aldwell of Kansas, who has been on- raged for a few speeches in Iowa He e said to be able and eloquent, and all should hear him. There will be a rond torchlight procession at 6:30 in ,he evening, just preceding the meet- Speoches by Ryan. Candidate Ryan spoke Monday even- ng at Lu Verne, last night at Ledard, speaks tonight at Bancroft, and next Monday evening he does missionary work according to democratic deas at Algona. He express^ himself being very hopeful 'for the rS ut all indications' point to the fact hat he is being deceived. ftct ™« Surprise. Mark M. Pomeroy (» Brick" Pomeroy) is in New York and has something startling to say on the political sit™ tion. Here it is: "Allot toy life f have been a free trader in theory hut T must accept the evidence, such as that collected by Commissioner Peck which proves that our tariff laws have been beneficinl to the working people Thn laws have raised wages, expanded opportunities, and therefore they have worked great good to the people. I am convinced that if our protective policy is broken down we will reduce the waea. rate. I am opposed to Cleveland because he is the representative of the class which is grinding down the debtor portion of the community. H Q stands for the rich few who are opposing the poor man. The friends of D . B. Hill won't take his advice. They . . ey listen to the advice and take it for what it is worth. Hill's treatment at the hands of Cleveland in Chicago was shatneless,and they have not forgotten I shall vote for Harrison," it. IMPOSING OEBEMONIEB. Dedication of the Iowa Building at the Openlne: of the World's Columbian Exposition. To the Editor : Saturday morning, Oct. 22, was the time appointed for the dedication of the Iowa state building. Massachusetts, New York,* Kansas, nnd one or two other states had also chosen this day for the dedication of their buildings. It was a glorious morning and the waters of Lake Michigan sparkled with unwonted splendor as the Iowa State band heralded the approach of the governor and his staff and other guests in carriages. To distinguish in this groat world's fair gathering, each carriage bore the label of its own state, and as the throngs parted to allow the cortege of Iowa carriages to pass through, many would be attracted to the Iowa building, and once there none could fail to be impressed with its most favorable and beautiful location. In entering tho exposition grounds at the 55th street station we find upon our left the Wisconsin, Now York. Massachusetts, and Pennsylvania buildings before coming to tho Iowa building, which is situated upon tho lake shore. There may bo grander buildings erected by some of the states — that of Illinois — which is to be a permanent building, is estimated. to cost over $200.000, but for beauty of location the Iowa building cannot be excelled. The pavilion, where the dedicatory exercises were held, is not new; this had been secured by Iowa and then added to, so that her building will be net only beautiful but commodious. By 11 o'clock, the hour appointed, the seats in the pavilion were rapidly filling, and the large platform, which was gaily decorated for the occasion, was astir with the locating of many of Iowa's noted citizens. Governor Boies and daughter were well to the front and centrally located. Ex- Gov. Larrabee and wife, Hon. John F. Duncombe and wife, James O. Crosby, president of the Iowa Columbian commission, and Rev. T. C. Greene were conspicuous among those who filled tho platform. The Iowa military officials in resplendent uniforms bore a conspicuous part, and the Iowa State band received the warmest en- coniums on all sides. The programme was as follows : Overture, Barber of Saville .............. Roslni Iowa State Band. Invocation .................... Rev. T. E. Greene Presentation of the Building to the Governor ............ James O. Crosby Dedication and Tender to the World's Exposition ............ Gov. Boles Response .......... Director Gen. Geo. R. Davis Music ............ Reminiscences of All Nations Iowa State Band. Poem ................... Mrs. Lucia Gale Barber Oration ........................ Hon. E, P. Seeds Benediction. Music, Iowa Columbian March ..... F. Phinney Iowa State Band. The programme was excellent and was fully carried out with the exception of the response by Gen. Davis, who was not present. Much credit is given to women for the great efficiency manifested by them in carrying forward to success tho great world's fair enterprises. Mrs. Potter Palmer, president of the board of lady managers, has proved to be a most able and efficient helper; standing first as a social leader. with beauty and wealth to aid her, and with rare womanly grace, united to the most thorough culture, she finds in all lands a most ready response to her appeals, and her zeal has been the means of stimulating and awakening the interest of women not only in our own country but in the countries across the sea. Each state now has its board of lady managers. Those of Iowa are as follows : President, Miss Ora E. Miller, Cedar Rapids ; vice president, Mrs. N. C. Deering, Osage; secretary, Mrs. Eliza G. Rhodes, Mt. Pleasant; treasurer, Miss Mary B. Hancock, Dubuque; Mrs. Flora J. McAchran, Bloomfiold; Mrs. WhitineS. Clark, Des Moines; Mrs. Orry H. Salts, Corning; Mrs. L. O. Person, Council Bluffs; Mrs. John F. Duncombo, Fort Dodge; Mrs. Jennie E. Rogers, Sioux City; Mrs. Elleu K. Cook, Davenport, Mrs, Maria S, Orwig, formerly of Des Moines, is the world's fair state correspondent for Iowa. It is expected that Iowa women will do much to adorn and beautify this state building for the coming world's fair in 1893. Now, is the ornamenting and adorning the principal thing asked and expected of women? They are asked to show the inventions of Iowa women, scientific collections of all kinds made by Iowa women, what has boon done in literature and art, and in charitable and educational work by Iowa women. In household economics they are asked to give carefully tested recipes for the proper cooking of rood products. Surely in some way every Iowa woman may feol that she can contribute to the success of this groat fair, and in every community there should be stimulus and zeal in helping forward so vast an undertaking. 0 , A. i.
