The county board mot in adjourned session Monday to finish up the work of the June meeting. The important work was hearing reports on grades and bridges. Nearly 800 feet of bridging are to be put in and not nearly all is to be done that seems necessary. One interesting transaction was rescinding the bridge contract with W. W.

His plan has been to drop into a town without warning and examine into the condition of the banks. In an interview Mr. Miller said that he had not found a single bank in Iowa that is not solid as a rock. He says that there was never more money in Iowa than today, and that with the present crop prospects the financial situation need worry none. _^____ Prof. J. L. Budd is of the opinion that bee-keeping and orcharding should go together. He says bees are the main agents in fertilizing fruit blossoms, and neighborhoods well stocked with bees have, one year with another, better crops of orchard and small fruit than the ones wholly or nearly destitute of these busy workers. It is a great compliment to Iowa that the Iowa State band should be selected to participate in all public functions that occur on the grounds. Hardly a day passes that this musical organization is not called upon to furnish music for some world's fair event. Last week the band took part in the dedication of the Ferris wheel and in Ohio's reception to Gov. McKinley. On Monday Prof. Phinney's accomplished musicians figured in the dedication of New Hampshire's building. The daily moi-n- ing rehearsals of the band in the Iowa building are always attended by large numbei-s, who pay as respectful attention from their benches beneath the band stand as if they were attending a formal concert. "I am Mrs. Russell Sage of New York and my husband is president of the Iowa Central railway," saida pleasant faced, stylish woman to one of the attaches of the Iowa building at Chicago. " I have never taken much stock in that railway, nor have I ever thought much of Iowa before, but I confess that I have changed my mind now. It's a •wonderful state, and I can see where my husband was wise." Such was the interesting compliment Iowa received from the lips of the wife of the eminent New York financier.
