Secretary Shaffer is daily in receipt of letters from exhibitors about the great Iowa State Pair of 1803. Mr. Shaffer says the outlook for exhibits was really never better, much better than he expected. People are enquiring for premium Hats right along and taking as much interest in it as if there was no world's fair. There is every assurance of the usual low rates and of special rates and trains from Chicago to bring visitors from there to see what Iowa has to offer on her own soil. Railroad Commissioner Perkins reports heavy misfortune to have fallen on the southwestern part of the state in the shape of tho almost total loss of the apple crop. On his orchard which us ually bore 1,000, he did not expect to have ten bushels, This, he says, is general in that part of the state. It was caused, he thinks, by tho Cold spell a few weeks ago, which came when the apples hud just formed and froze the tender stems. Tho state bank examiner has returned from a five-weeks' tour among the banks of Iowa. He visited nearly all the towns in the nothwestern part of the state and also in the southwestern. He has found affairs at all the banks in a first-class condition. Indeed he says the banks of the state are in better condition now, in fact, than they have been for years. Col. McCarthy says ho has not found any evidence of a lack of confidence in the banks anywhere ho has been. He visited a large number of cities and found enormous quantities of money on hand. The oil painting of ex-Gov. Kirkwood is finished and is to be taken to, Des Moines today. It will be unveiled, as it were, June 20, with somewhat formal ceremonies. All the ex-governors of Iowa and many other prominent friends of the governor will bo invited to be present. Among others ex-Govs. Gear and Carpenter and Judge Wright will make addresses. Auditor of state McCarthy has just issued his report upon the insurance business done in the state during 1892. For the year ending Jan. 1, 1893, it appears that Iowa fire insurance companies, 20 in number, collected in premiums $1,917,048.99 and paid back on account of fire losses $754,939.03, or 30.4 per cent. During the same period outside^fire companies doing business in Iowa collected in premiums $2,351,355.00 and paid out in losses $979,372.76 or 41.0 per cent. During the year for every 40 cents of fire loss paid the people of Iowa paid to the companies $1. Auditor of state McCarthy in his address before the State Bankers' association at Council Bluffs quoted some facts to show the wonderful increase in savings deposits in Iowa. We quote from him: Savings banks, Oct. 25, 1875,19 in number, with $3,201,585 assets; June 30, 1892, 104 in number, with $32,762,750 in assets, a ten-fold increase. State banks of the same date, 23 in number, assets $3,385,350, increasing to 41 -in number, assets $26,247,649, or about seven-fold increase in seventeen years. During the last year 43 new savings batiks and 38 state banks have been organized in Iowa.

An Algona Man HOB a Horse Stolon After Ho Traded for It-Gets Ills Horse Hack. We are under obligations to Bro. Dillman of the Blue Earth Post for a copy of the Mankato Daily Review of June 7, in which is the following: On Friday last Chas. Rounds, a horse trader from Algona, Iowa, who has been camping in the city for some days past, met with an unusual experience in horse trading, and one that will prove quite serious to the man trading \yith him if he can be caught. On Friday afternoon Mr. Rounds traded a buckskin colored pony to a man, whose name he does not know and a stranger in the city, for a black pony. After making the trade the stranger sold his pony at Saenger's livery barn in the northern part of the city. That evening the stranger decided that he wanted his former horse back again, and after 12 o'clock he visited Mr. Round's wagon, he and his family having retired, took the horse, hitched it to nis cart and drove away. No traces of the missing horse could be found until yesterday. While Gates Phillips was at St. Glair be recognized it, and upon coming to Man: 1 *t last evening *" ^-* ^ ' tho stolen horse was sold to parties in that village. Mr. Rounds drove to St. Clair this morning to prove the horse and also find the man who stole it. There io a reward of $200 for the' capture of horse thieves, nhd the trade may not seem so funny to this man if they succeed in catching him. GOLD AMONGST DEOSS, The Dubuque Telegraph Philosopher Considers the Sinn Case. People may bo wicked and yet have some noble traits of character. The case of John Sinn and his wife who worn recently convicted of burglary at Algona, Iowa, supplies an illustration in point. At tho trial both the man and tho woman endeavored to provo that tho latter alone was guilty and that tho husband had nothing to do with the burglary nor know anything about it. The state, however, established that both were culpable, with the result that Sinn was sentenced to 18 months and his wifo to six months' imprisonment. Tho wife's assumption of tho entire responsibility with the purpose of saving the husband was a display of self-sacrificing devotion that has not many parallels. She was animated by the sq "'<>». spirit that has prompted man to aio jor men, and had she displayed tho unselfishness in a good en use and for a worthy object she would deservedly be regarded as a heroine. But Sinn's course was in marked contrast with, big wife's, l&>. stoad of accusing himself and shielding-' her, as ho would have done if he had possessed ahundreth part of her native nobility, he accused her to protect himself. While both are criminals, the woman is as far above the man as tho firmament above tho earth. He is degraded. She has qualities of soul, which, were her environment different and better, would make her respected and admired. Now and then, amongst the dross of humanity, pure gold is found. IOWA AT THE WOBLD'S PAIE. Kotos of Interest About Our State- Exhlblt-A New lTlold for the Women. Preparations are rapidly being made for tho competitive dairy exhibit which opens at the fair tomorrow. The Iowa exhibits are expected to carry off a large number of prizes for buttei-, and the state is making a showing in the cheese line. Mr. Gabrielson, who has charge of the display, returned to Iowa last night to superintend the packing of June butter. About 150 Iowa farmers and dairy men will be represented at the trial. Three judges have been appointed, one from Wisconsin and two from the east. Thn Iowa commissioners hoped that one of the men selected to pass upon the exhibit would be an Iowa man, and they nominated several for the position, but the national board decided to give the favor to Wisconsin. Exhibitors are allowed until tho tenth to get the exhibit in place, and immediately after that time the judges will pass upon it and award the prizes. The Iowa space is fifty feet in height near the center of the west side of the dairy building. A fresh exhibit will be made each month for June, July, August and September, a different set of judges being appointed each time. The New York Tribune in reporting the women's editorial meeting says: Absolutely startling was the announcement, at one point in the programme, that Mrs. Ida Tims Klocker of Iowa would be heard on the subject" Woman as a Race Reporter," and when a demure little woman stepped forward and began to demonstrate her intimate acquaintance with the intricacies of turf nomenclature, such as " pure-gaited trotters," "side-wheelers," "quarter- stretches," "scalping boots," "kite tracks," mutual and auction pools, and the like, the men in the audience began to gasp and ask each other to point out the woman on the platform who would discourse on the fine points in pugilism. It is believed that Mrs. Klocker is as unique among her sex in her chosen department of work as was Middy Morgan in her day, when a live stock reporter for the New York papers. Mrs. Klocker has reported every race that has taken place on the famous Independence, Iowa, track since it was opened in 1889. She has studied the pedigrees of the various trotting families and knows the values of the different lines of blood in the production of speed as well as the horsemen themselves. She is a recognized authority on all race questions, and from horse- owner to stable-boy is universally respected.
