JOHN GROVE TT/ii fVRXISH YQV G-OOD XJVEHY RIG'S THE WEEK'S IOWA NEWS. In 1892 the number of county fair societies in Iowa was 116; the membership, 35,952; the receipts, $267,462.42; and the average receipts, $2,297; the premiums paid amounted to $174, 079.26; the indebtedness was, $102,291.94; the average premiums paid was, $1,500.68; the amount paid on improvements was $61,999.89. The receipts over improvements and premiums paid was $31,383.27. The state draft horse association last week adopted these resolutions: That we favor a single expert for judging. That we favor the exclusion of all distinctly bred pedigreed horses for the general purpose class. Hogs in May, 1883, reached $7.85 in Chicago. March of 1883 they reached $8.15, but the average that year was only $6.20, and the average for 1882 was $7.65. From $9.35 in September, 1882, hogs declined to $6,30 for tops in the following September, but in February, 1884, the best heavy sold up to $7.75. There has been some talk to the effect that the Northwestern railroad would put on a train to leave Chicago at 3 a, m, each day, consisting of a mail, baggage and express and one passenger coach. The purpose of this train is to get the express of the American company ahead of everything else. If it connected to Algona from Eagle Grove the Chicago papers would arrive the day they are published. Following is the score of points for ear corn as adopted by the experts, the total being 100 per cent: Length of ear, 10; circumference of ear, 10; evenness of ear, 10; per cent of net grain to cob, 30; color and uniformity of grain, 20; quality and ripeness of grain, 20. The standard for large varieties of dent are, length of ear, 10 inches; circumference of ear, 7 inches; lengh of kernel, 3-5 inches. Small dent: Length of ear, 8 inches; circumference of ear, 6i inches; length of kernel, 3-5 inches. All ears should be cylindrical, tapering slightly to the tip; well filled out, both butt and tip. TSIED TO SNUB PHIL. Tl»e Venezuelans Fall to Invite mm to a Government Bull. CARACAS, Venez., Jan. 11.—American residents are excited over the events which occurred in connection with the New Year's ball, which Gen. Crespo gave at Case* Amarjlla, It was a grand affair and w»8 attended by 2,000 person*. United States Consul Hftnn,a at LaGuayra was the only representative of ft foreign government —•• . CQm.m,and,e,p United States cruiser Kearsarge, upon learning of the slight of Consul Hanna, took the Kearsearge away from La- Guayra so that none of the officers invited could attend the ball. The Minneapolis Journal has an editorial on this dispatch under the title. "The Matter With Hanna," and says: The president will have to take Venezuela in hand again. United States Consul Hanna of LaGuayra has been snubbed—given a dead cut by Dictator Crespo. It is impossible to conceive of any substantial reason why Gen. Crespo should refuse to invite Hanna to his grand blowout at Casa Amarilla. The dispatch assigns no cause; so the American people are left to the conclusion that in snubbing Hanna, Crespo, flushed with his recent triumph over the late absolutist Venezuelan government, determined that the time had come to defy the North American republic, and so he selected the modest Hanna as the medium of insult. But Crespo little knows the temper of the American people. The faithful Crowninshield at once steamed the Kearsarge out of LaGuayra harbor and not an American went to Crespo's breakdown. Back of Hanna is the American navy, and back of the navy are the American people. The whole gulf squadron should be ordered at once to LaGuayra and threaten bombardment if abject apology is not made within 24 hours. What is the use of having a a navy if we don't avenge the insult to Hanna? It is a good time to show the stuff we are made of. Hanna must be avenged? That's whats the matter with Hanna!

Sample, a KoBBUth Pioneer Passed Away J,nst Week—A Pew Notes Concerning; the JAfo of One of Our Bent Citizens. The funeral of David Sample, who died last Wednesday morning, was hole at his late home in Irvington Friday morning at 11 o'clock. Although the day was one of the coldest of the year, a largo number of the early settlers anc old friends in the south end of the county were present, as well as a number from Algona, including some 20 members of the masonic fraternity, who had charge of the burial. Rev. Davidson conducted the exercises at the house, and a long procession fol lowed the remains to the Irvington cemetery, where already many of the pioneers of the county are laid. Mr. Sample belonged to the first comers on the Upper Des Moines. He was born April 27, 1822, and raised in West Middlesex, Mercer county, Penn sylvania, and for many years was a school teacher there. In 1848 he came to Jackson county in this state and again taught school. In the spring of 1856 in company with Mr. and Mrs. Jos. Thompson he came to Kossuth, and took the claim where he has since lived. After getting fairly accustomed to his new home he went back to Jackson county and was married in May 1859 to Josephine Austin—Mrs. Sample still surviving him. The result of their union was 11 children, eight of whom are still living, all of them present at the old home Friday. At the time of his death Mr. Sample was in his 71st year, and was the first one of seven brothers to die, there being three brothers older, and three younger, who survive him. He was a member of the Masonic lodge for 24 years, and was buried under the auspices of that order. During his years in Kossuth Mr. Sample accumulated a comfortable iroperty, and leaves a valuable farm to iis family. Ho was one of the hardest workers in his early manhood, and until his attacks of hemorrhage began, there was among the early comers. He was honest in his business dealings, a man of excellent character, one who believed in the comforts of home life. Ho built one of the best farm houses in the county, also a barn that was noteworthy at the time it was erected. In his death the county loses an estimable citizen, as well as one intimately connected with our pioneer settlement. CARD OF THANKS. We desire to express to the Masonic fraternity and the kind friends and neighbors, our heartfelt thanks for their kindness in our late bereavement and sorrow in the loss of our dear husband and father.

Terms, with TJIE VPPKH DES MofNiss, 14.20. Abraham Jjlncoln. When leaving his home at Springfield, 111.,, to bo inaugurated president of the United States, made a farewell address to his old friends and neighbors in which he said, "Neighbors, give your boys a chauce." Those words come with as much force today as they did thirty years ago. How give them this chance? Up In the northwest is a great empire waiting for young and sturdy fellows to come and develop it end " grow up with the country." All over this broad land are the young fellows, the boys that Lincoln referred to, seeking to bettor their condition and get on in life. Here is their chance 1 The country referred to lies along the Northern Pacific railway. Horo you can find pretty much anything you want. In Minnesota, and in the Red River valley of North Dakota the finest of prairie lands fitted fo» wheat and grain, or as well for diversified farming. In western North Dakota and Meutana are stock ranges limitless in extent, clothed with the most nutritious of grasses. If a fruit farming region is wanted there is the whole state of Washington to select from. As for scenic delights the Northern Pa- jiflc railroad passes through a country unparalleled. In crossing the Bocky, Bitter Boots, and Cascade mountains the greatest nountain scenery to be seen in the United States from the car windows is found, The wonderful bad lands, wonderful in graceful Form and glowing color, are a poem. Lakes Pend d 1 Oreille and Cceur d' Alene »re alone worthy of a trans-continental trip, while they are the fisherman's untima ;hule. Tho ride along Clark's fork of the Columbia river is a daylight dream. To cap the climax this is the only way to reach *,he far-famed Yellowstone park. To reach and see all this the Northern Pacific railroad furnishes trains and sery- ce of unsurpassed excellence. Tho most approved and comfortable palace sleeping cars j the best dining cars that can be made; Pullman tourist cars 'good for both first and second-class passengers; easy riding day coaches, with baggage, express, and postal curs, all drawn by powerful Baldwin loco- JSOttyes, njake a train fit for royalty itself, Those seeking for new homes should take ;ua train and go an,d any out the laud.
