The fact IB Kossuth county can't be beat. Wm. Heathefshaw has a way of proving it. He took some onions to the state fnir from his Bancroft farm and won first premium. He brought the same onions to the county fair and they didn't win. And he says that in every line the county fair was ahead of the stnto exhibit. There were 101 horses and colts out last week,' and A. C. Brown of Mason City, who acted as judge, and whose awards showed him to be a good judge, says that he never saw better displays in many classes. The draft colts were as fine a lot as ever camo together anywhere. There were 70 cattle out. The horses crowded down into their stalls, and although a lot of now ones were-built-tho Jerseys had to take their chances tied to trees outside. W. E. G. Saunders,. manager of tho big Blairgovvrie farm near JSm- tnetsburg, was an excellent judge of the stock, and lie praised tho display as Mr. Brown did the horses. It wui by far the biggest ever made in KOB- euthj atid was never beaten in a countv fair in this section. There were CO sheep, 48 hogs for all the cholera talk, 22 turkeys, 18 ducks and guinea hens, 30 fowls besides two displays. The grain exhibit was like tbatof the stock. There were 32 seperate dozen ears of corn, and 35 displays of potatoes. All along the line it was an exhibit that the county is proud of and one that wag enjoyed by the big crowd which got in on the one good day:. The fair was to have opened Thursday, but it rained all day. Friday opened pretty well and before night 2,700 gate tickets had been sold, besides the special .tickets, exhibitors' tickets, etc. That is 600 more than on the one day last year. The Catholic ladies took in $80 for dinner, W. P. Boyer sold Over 400 water melons from the Butler farm he now owns, and on which he has 10 acres of melons that pay him $250 an acre. Tho merry-go- round, the phonograph, and the nigger baby rack all were liberally patronized, It was a big day while it lasted, and it closed with a storm that will not be forgotten soon in this section. Saturday the grounds wove soaked and tho crowds were goin'g north to the scene of destruction. THE BACKS. The programme of sports was almost ruined. The track was so muddy Friday that only three of the bicycle riders would try it, and tho races were put ovei 1 ' for Saturday. There were present Edmonds and Moore of Des Moines, Sutcliffeof Waterloo, Myhre of Eetherville, Merkle of LuVerne, and Earl Tennant and Walters of Algona, and some speedy races were assured. Moore, Myhre, and Markle ran one five mile dash in 18 minutes in the mud, Myhre winning by the length of his wheel, Moore second. In the county running race, Ida M., the fast mare of Ledyard, who made such a record at Hampton, took first; Higley's White Stockings, second; and Harbor's White Stockings, third. The third heat was a close one between the first two horses. In the novelty race the usual- crowd started, but Tom. Butler's Fred walked a half mile in six minutes, and got such a lead that the rest were not in sight. Thos. Kain'e Fly was second, and L. L. Miller's Barney was third.. For Saturday's races Clack's Golddust Prince was on the grounds, Fred Cory had three horses from Wesley, and a lot of others, runners and trotters, were on hand. With the bicycle races they would have furnished an interesting day's sport. ITS COLORS STILL PLYING. In spite of a second year's dampening the fair association will pay all premiums in full in cash, and it will plan for a meeting next year to beat this one. If it can it will add to its grounds, it will have more stalls, it will have a better amusement pro- gramme, and it won't expect a third wetting down. If it once gets a full programme now with the crowds which attend, it will have money to ofler bigger premiums and to make, the annual fairs the great events' of the season, of the board Could at any the money for their own districts and still retain their official places. There are two sides to this matter of favoritism to localities on the part of super* Visors, WESLEY !8 NOT 1D1.E. Meetings Held to Help the guffefers br the file etofito. WESLEY, Septr26.-^A mass meeting of the citizens of Wesley was held here Monday night and a committee was appointed to raise funds for tho relief of those who are suffering from the ravages of the storm, and to look after the property of those Who are hurt. The committee Will leave nothing undone to alleviate their sufferings, and it is hoped everybody will take hold and help all they can. Mr. Myers and Mr. BlrdsaU'e neighbors turned out Monday and hauled grain to town for them. The storm had unroofed their granaries. Mr. Myers will build again at once. Carpenters will begin the house as soon as they can get the lumber there. The grain from around Sexton is mostly coming to Wesley this fall. C. E. Jones 'was a very popular ngont while therei and his customers seem to follow him here. For Fine Groceries SEE- *.'i «, ^Hi "S j •s A MILLION FRIENDS. .

By having the county in d$|- tricts and a supervisor elected fronj each assures every section of a representative, whereas if they are elected at large one part of the county might have them »U if able to control the county conventions."
