wS^'ir' r :..',•.;' " .„ VOL X2C1V. ALGONA, KOSStTTH COUNTY, IOWA, WEDNESDAY. A Good Investment! is what We site all looking after, and with one of the largest crops ever known, thin question comes to ever farmer; What shall I do with all this grain, sell oats at I8c pel- bushel or build a granery? And which will pay me the best ? Oats can't be raised at 18c per bushel, and when a thing is sold below cost of production it is reasonable to expect higher prices. Or in other words oats ought to bring 20c to 25c before spring, but if they are only 20c, you make 7c per bushel by holding them. Now, about $50 worth of lumber .will build a granary that will hold 1200 bushels, and ?c profit on 1200 bushels is $84, or $34 profit and the granary. Double the capacity of the granary at a cost of about $90 and the profit on $2,400 bushel is $168, or $78 and the granary. Conclusion: Build a granary, make yourself some money and buy your lumber of SkooL Said the man to the fly; but a moment later he went to Brownell .&.

Tuesday, September 10, at 10 a. in. the great contest of corn harvesting ^machines will be held in the field of corn now growing on the fair grounds, and planted especially for the purpose .of showing the farmers of Iowa the lat- est'and best machines in actual work together in one field. "Wednesday, September 11, will oc- ;c'ur the field contest of potato harvest* ing machines^also.in a field of potatoes growing on the fair grounds, especially planted for- the purpose. This n too, will prove an exciting contest, as rival- manufacturers realize the value, as an advertisement, of securing in an impartial field trial the silver medal to be awarded the^best machine. Thursday, September 12 gang, stirring, sulky and subsoil plows will each contest for superiority, and in this line will be some newly patented plows which promise to add immensely, when once introduced, to the 'productive capacity of Iowa farms. Friday, September 18, potato planters, corn planters and seeding machines of all kinds will be called upon to prove by actual work in the field the claims of their manufacturers, and in this line the entries already made indicate new and important features, the knowledge of which will be of interest to'every progressive farmer, V Every farmer who owns a windmill knows of the vexation caused by protracted calms, when the windmill stands still while the. st9ck suffer for water, or hand pumping is the last resort. Inventors and manufacturers have not been idle in endeavoring to supply the demand for a cheap, effective device for pumping water that could be absolutely controlled by the owner, regardless of the elements. Gasoline engines, costing less than a cent an hour for fuel, have now been perfected for pumping water, and steam engines, and hot air engines and other devices for deep and shallow pumping, will be in actual operation during the fair, V In the line of amusements and other attractions, which are greater than ever before, we have only space to mention the great sham battle, the details of which have been entrusted to officers who were high in command, on opposite sides during the civil war. Here will be seen an actual battle, without the bloodshed, two battalions of trained soldiers, the fierce onslaught apd heroic defense, the roar of cannon ai d rattle, of musketry, the terribU- chavge preceding the capture of the potion, an$ above all will be beard the yells of the victors singled, with the groans of the wounded, anA dying, The surgeons and ambulances will add realism to the scene, and the terrible havqpof war with all its attending circumstances, will be a sight neve^tobe forgotten. V That person Bflwsfc indeed be Stupid, who would noj; receive »W§ benefit from a. visit to Iowa's fairs, The torn , dMbe paofl exhibit Of- : hpme mtfactos BSW -|9 be upon the Iowa soldiers' and sailors' monument. His face Will appear in the group formed to welcome the Iowa soldiers on their return to their homes. The official list of that receptiongroupis as follows: Gov. Samuel J. Kitkwood. Adjt. Gen. N. B. Baker. Judge EdWard Johnstone. Judge George G. Wright. Ex-Gov, James W. Grimes. Harriet A. Ketclutm. Mrs. William Larrabee. Mrs. John Scott. Hon. John F. Buncombe. Philip M. Crapo. The Capital respects Mr. Buncombe as a man, but We must say his portrait ought to be no partof the Iowa soldiers' monument. His record during the war was not patriotic, if all Iowa men had been of the Buncombe stamp there would not have been an Iowa man in the union ranks. If all the men in the north had been patriots likeBuncombe the union would have been destroyed and the confederacy established. There can be no doubt as to Buncombe's record. Old citizens of Iowa remember it well. The men who persistently voted the democratic ticket in Iowa during the WHS quite generally sympathised with the south. There was no mistake or misunderstanding about it at the time. There should be none now. Every democratic platform on which Buncombe stood and voted contained a protest against the war. It is not a question of forgiveness. Buncombe is forgiven. He blindly stood by his political party—and uin the riskof letting his country go to pieces, His prejudice against the abolitionists was too great to be overcome. His name Mould not have been on any soldiers' reception committee < when the boys came marching home in 1865. It should not be on a reception committee on the soldiers' monument. If £hat commission has not already rescinded its action it ought to do so at once, not out of disrespect for Buncombe as a man, but out of regard for the men in whose name the monument is to stand. The Grand Army post at Fort Bodge recites Mr. Buncombe's record in the Grand Army Advocate-iis follows: Fort Bodge, Io., Aug. 9, 1895.—To the Editor of the Advocate: In the last number of the Grand Army Ad- ,yocate appears a list of the medallions to appear, or at least selected to appear upon'.the soldiers' monument at Bes Moines. In that list appears a name, which,,if his medallion appears upon the monument, will very much abridge the subsequent labors of the commission, for no right minded soldier nor his descendants will allow his name to appear upon a monument, containing a mTOsjlliou of John "F.-Buncombe, "as' that \youldbe a libel'upon the histoiy Mr. Duncombe has made>for himself. In 1861 Mr, Buncombe published a paper misnamed The Fort Bodge Bem- ocrat, from which for convenience the following extract is taken from.'inany columns equally or more rank in disunion sentiment: • " We call upon those who made the war to fight the war. Let the abolitionists fight. Let them enlist. Let them pour out their blood first. If .democrats desire to help in a war under the name of patriotism, the only result of which we believe will be to bring irreparable ruin to both' north and south, let them do what they believe to be their duty. We do notfeol like fighting the descendants ,of Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe and thousands of the brave men who sprang like tigers to the defense of our country whenever she was in danger, and who today, many of them, love this union arid who rejoice in an amicable • settlement, but will fight to the very last man, woman and child rather than be driven to do what is wrong. * * To hurl a million of men upon the fruitful sunny south to devastate and blacken with war and destroy without mercy merely because a few damnable, traitorous abolitionist fanatics, who are ignorant of the A B C of patriotism demand it, We will never do it and we think the democratic party would disgrace its name and character to do it, and we will never say let come what will that any democrat could be excusable even in yielding to the cursed importunities of such villains." After being smoked out of his claims that published extracts from the Fort Bodge Beraocrat were forgeries,, on November 22,1884, Mr, Buncombe said in the Fort Bodge Chronicle pf that date; "So that there cannot be the slightest mistake we desire to say that what was written over twenty-three years ago by Mr. Buncombe for that paper, under like circumstances, would be written a^ain," This stamps Mr. Buncombe to be wb,at js termed "an unrepentant copperhead," In J8Q2, under what events seemed to indiga,te,49 have been a general pro* gramme all over the country where ijogsibJe to have rebel sympathizers de* liver Fourth .of July orations to .spread tbesljme'Of rebellion throughout the north and intimidate loyalty, Mr. Bun' combe wade his planS'to speak in Fort BQcjge., - Tinker wte leadership th° r eb* el , eympjatwsing element, though in the miRopjty, was blatant, and ths loyal element, fearing t«rbuJeRoe and; , m$ meetings an<J eonjul £9 grange-a programme " • to ail. tmt MF< Tv ~~~ , and, wp You can have a nice one, easy, if you call at the , > House Grocery and learn how.
