Carpenter's political career was singularly successful, considering that he wns not a man of unusual talents, and that Port Dodge was an unusually turbulent political hotbed. His success was due in part to his uniform courtesy to all. It was due in part to his not being a money maker. He died as he had lived, in very moderate circumstances. But is was due most of all to his unswerving honesty. "Honest Cy" he was known by all. He was faithful to the trusts reposed in him. He was efficient, attentive, and reliable. Lewis H. Smith, in a sketch of early times, sums up his characteristics as a politician when he says: " No man can say that ho ever forgot a friend or persecuted an enemy; when I say enemy I mean political, for personally he never had one." Mr. Ambrose A. Call recalls that once while surveying in Kossuth Gov. Carpenter told him that a political career was his ambition. It was gratified. But few men have held more positions of honor or have secured them more easily. His opinion in late life is a valuable commentary. In talking of some matters of early history a year ago with the editor of THE UPPEK DES groom has the management of a lum her business at that place, is regarded as a prudent and capable young business man, and enjoys the good will of his patrons.

The Romans of the ancient world delighted in scenic sports; Nero pacified rebelious elements and made himself a popular ruler by feast ng the Roman eye with visions of battling gladiators, thrilling and exciting hippodromes, and other wonderful creatons. The public of the ancient and the mediaeval days loved excitement, entertainment and amusement The modern people are not different save that they are Christians and the ancients were pagan. The circus is the coliseum under a tent; it fs the arena with acting gladiators. The public always delights in a meritorious circus. This explains why the Dubuque public was eminently pleased with the Wallace show.

Perhaps the most valuable of his later productions, if not the last, was his sketch of surveying in Kossuth written for THE UPPER DES MOINES a year ago. It was republished in the Annals of Iowa, and will remain a valuable reminder of the early days. When the history of Iowa is written Gov. Carpenter's career will fill a large and honorable part in its pages. NEWS AND COMMENT. Now that the Iowa boys have reached the front Gov. Shaw's wisdom in holding them at Des Moinos until they were thoroughly equipped is evident to everybody. Some were impatient because Iowa's soldiers were not the first in camp.

To enumerate the best acts would bo a tusk equal to finding merit in Spanish atrocities. Every act was good and there wore a few that especially centered attention. The aerial work was fine and the ring work of the highest order. The Nelson family, the Stirk family, the Earl sisters, O'Brien and Thomas, and innumerable other stars, among tho very best in the business, won the plaudits of the multitudes. The show continued about two and one-half hours and when the people went away: they had only words of the highest commendation. The whole circus is clean and up to date; it is well directed and conducted faultlessly It s replete with new acts performed by the best actors in the business. The accoutrements are all attractive and nhe people's wardrobe handsome. When the Wallace shows come again more than 10,000 people will await their coming. DEATH OF MRS. OSBORNE.

Carpenter removes a man intimately associated with the early history of this section of the state. He began with the beginnings as a government surveyor, and in many public capacities since has come into close contact with the people. Tho pioneers of Kossuth knew him as one of their number. Fort Dodge was Algona's next neighbor, and visiting back and forth forty years ago was more frequent than it is now between acquaintances across the town site. He passes away personally mourned by thousands of the early comers. Gov. Carpenter's first visit to Algona was in May of 1855. He and Lewis H. Smith came together to complete the government survey in what are now Swea, Eagle and adjoining townships. The old manuscript " Bee" has many notices of his visits in the fifties. One spirited local item pictures him crossing the town site on a mule. In 1857 he was a private in the military expedition to Spirit Lake, which kept the Sioux from coming down the Des Moines after the massacre. In 1861 he went into the army as a captain and served as comm^sary of subsistence. He was on the sta.ifs of Generals Rosecrans, Dodge and Logan. In 1866 he was elected register of the state land office, receiving in Kossuth county 149 votes to 5 for his opponent, He was reelected In 1868, Kossuth giving him -333 to 80 for bis opponent. In 1871 be was elected governor of the state. &088uth gave him 517 to 63. He was reflected in 1873, land Kossuth's vote ira,s #48 tp § in bis favor.
