weather was propitious all through the three clays of the and everything seemed to work in the interest of a profitable and holiday season for the people of ICossuth The display of horses and cattle was not as large as has been known but tho quality and superior breeding of those on exhibition were strongly Especially was this so with tho show of highly creditable exhibits of in wore made and A superior lot of stallions were entered on the among those Winkers Lon donderry and and tho well known horses owned by Gal White and John Con Brood mares of vastly more than common merit wore exhibited by Pettsbone and The other ex hibits of horse through the gradations from to the youngest were creditable in although not and their relative merits will appear in tho published premium The show of sheep was lamenta bly but good our friend Walker walking away witli all tho Tho exhibits of swiuo were cer tainly very creditable to this county and show that our farmers are im proving in this branch as The principal exhibits will appeal favorably in the published list of premiums The show of corn was very but in other there was small We Judge from the exhibit of potatoes that the crop is to bo largo as in this Irish varieties were and specimens of huge proportions wore greatly admired by of exhibited some sweet potatoes raised on his farm successfully and The beets beat everything else in the vegetable line and attracted a good deal of attention and admira But our greatest pride and that over which the friends of the socie ty feel most like was the display of apples and Over fifty different exhibits of standard and improved crab varieties were made by citizens of Kossuth and a fine sample lot was sent out by the Charles City nursery Afterone view of the BUCCOSH already attained in the culture of apples in Kossutb there should be no further doubl of final complete Next to the display of apples was that ol and our people are rapidly moving toward the front in the cul ture of

pleased the eye and tempted the The display ot articles manufac tured in the county was very bnt spoke volumes for Domestic manufactures were well as were some classes of fancy The Jesoretionary class was tbe largest of tbe whole lift and will have to be postponed for in tbe published Very likely just pritioesm may be indulged in relative to the manner in which the fair was con but tbe best way to
