It requires skill and the best materials to make it a success. Sometimes a woman blames herself or the recipe or the baking powder, when the fault is in the flour. By using our FANCY PATENT FLOUR you can always tell where the fault isn't—it isn't in that brand of flour. Langdon & Hudson. VOL. XXX1V-NO. 81.

Shaw had two big meetings in north Kossuth Inst Friday. He spoke atGermania in the afternoon and at Bancroft in the evening. He was enthusiastically received at hoth places, and made two of his best speeches. At Gerraanjii a big tent had been secured, the business houses closed, the schools had a half holiday, and everybody in the surrounding country turned out. The visit of the governor was made a grout occasion, and he enjoyed his reception immensely. He was entertained at the handsome Wheelock home, which Is one of the most elegant in Iowa. In Bancroft the crowd packed Jefferson hall ao that the governor had to go around and enter by the stage door. Over 100 were turned away who could not get in. It was the biggest political meeting Bancroft has had, and everybody was enthusiastic over It. The governor was entertained at supper at Mrs. R. M. Richmond's homo, where he mot ft pleasant company of Bancroft's leading citizens. A night freight brought him to Algona, whore he shook hands with many of our citizens Saturday morning before taking the 10:40 train to Brltt, where ho spoke in the afternoon. THE UPPER DES MOINES has too often referred to Gov. Shu w as a stum p- or to nmko any extended reference to his speech necessary. He fs clear, concise, plain and otl'ootive, and he hits the nail. Ho made two of the bestspeechos ever heard in Kossuth county, and ho made lots of friends for himself as well as for the cause, Kossuth feels greatly honored, as It is the only county in the state that gets two speeches from him in this campaign.
