Brownstown Indiana dec. 1, 1s77. Alex. Hero Sec. State Board of agriculture sir As president of the Jackson county agricultural society at Brownstown not Seymour As you always have it the old society there having died some two years ago and is buried too deep for resurrection submit the following report of our second annual exhibition held at the society s grounds september 17 to 21, inclusive the first Day monday was devoted to general a preparations entries and arrangement of All articles and Stock passage through the Gate being free to everybody. It having been Given out that there would be no horses shown on time until the 4th and 5th Days of the fair the attendance up to that time was exceedingly slim. Gentlemen of purity and reputed piety whose voices had been loud in denunciation of Quot horse racing Quot As they characterized it by some untoward oversight or mismanagement upon their part As we have the Charity to believe failed to put in an appearance until the time set for Quot racing Quot rolled around. Then the came promptl3-, and smiling As blandly As if they were attending a festival. They brought their families and their luncheon too and remained till the result of the last Quot race Quot was announced manifesting no Little interest in this feature of the exhibition. The weather being favourable the fair was a decided Success. The number of entries in All classes was larger than last year the proceeds of w hich together with the Gate Money enabled us to pay premiums in full leaving a Small balance in the Treasury which by a strange co incidence was exactly the amount the officers charged for their services during the exhibition. The display of live Stock was particularly Good a Large proportion of the cattle being thoroughbreds. The mechanical vegetable Floral and miscellaneous departments were All Well represented and the display in each reflected credit upon the exhibitors for their Energy skill and interest manifested for the welfare of the society. With a few trivial exceptions everything passed off quietly and pleasantly. Our society is in a healthy and flourishing condition and our county was never More prosperous than it is to Day. In Point of agriculture it is unsurpassed by any county in the state. Brownstown the county seat is looking up and growing rapidly. Work on the Bedford Brownstown and Madison railway will begin at this Point Early in the Spring giving employment to hundreds of our labourers and mechanics and adding still More to the growth wealth and Prosperity of our town Najj county. As i stated in my last report our Farmers and mechanics Are alive to everything pertaining to their interests and the and most improved implements of husbandry can be found with All of them. Under auspices so favourable we May reasonable expect from an intelligent Community that our society having for its object the development of the Industrial resources of the county should be fostered a.=i an institution worthy the consideration of our people. I have served As president of the society from its incipient by and put Forth my Best efforts to make it what it is. I now find Ray engagements such As to prevent my serving any longer in that capacity and wishing my and the society unbounded Success i bid you ally Adieu Quot Wilbur Benton. Our i it i strict schools. A new school history of the United states by prof. John Clark Neidpath which is a history in fact As Well As in name has awakened fresh interest in the subject even among to whom Ordinary school books with a similar object have become distasteful. Its prominent characteristics Are completeness of narrative ready helps in maps diagrams charts and illustrations Perspicuous arrangement and tenseness All of which shows the hand and brain of the accomplished scholar and expert historian and seem to us sufficient to unchain the interest of youth which Many school histories fail to do. It has been adopted by the Board of education of this county and at the Low Exchange Price 25 cents at which it May be procured our trustees and teachers fall Short of their duty As Long As it fails to be the text Book of history in every school of the county. -4.8 this very Low Exchange Price remains open during the present school year Only it would seem to us that immediate advantage should be taken of the liberality of the publishers j ones Brothers amp co., Cincinnati o. I Etter from brother Andy i Gay. De Bannek permit Nie through the columns of your worthy paper to give my hereabouts amp a. It has been some time since i was a resident of Jackson county yet my thoughts frequently Are musing on the Many Happy hours i have spent there. Often have i thought of the pleasant greetings i have received from friends in old Jackson. Time can Only blot out the memories of the past. 1 can say truthfully that my heart enmity towards none of my acquaintances in Jackson county. Many of them Are my political enemies but socially my warmest friends. Even the Banner Boss is not an exception. Though he is a firm and staunch Democrat i number him As one of my Best looking and warmest social . October 1875, i was elected superintendent of Lucas county by the Republican party. Took charge of said office the 1st monday in january 1876, for the term of two years. This being the Case on monday january 7th, i stepped Down and out of said honoured position. After i had hauled off my official coat and handed it Over to my successor i had nothing to do the rest of the cold and dreary Winter Days so i looked about for other Fields of labor. I was not Long in seeing a Field for labor. Iowa being the Banner Republican state and the legislature overwhelming Republican in both branches was to Convene on the 14th. So i came up to see what my chances were for sergeant at arms of the Senate there were Only seven aspirants for the same position myself consequently i had to work faithfully from the time i arrived at the Field of conflict till the met. I Laboured under disadvantages As i was Only acquainted with one senator while the most of my opponents were better known. The Assembly met at 2 p. M., and soon completed the temporary organization and then adjourned till 10 next morning. After adjournment All the Republican senators except one met in caucus for the purpose of nominating one candidate for each position. The democrats met too but i was not interested in their meeting. Were 37 senators present. On the 4th ballot i received a majority of All the votes cast and was declared the nominee on the Republican Side. On tuesday Tjie 15th, at 10 a. M., the Assembly met pursuant to adjournment and proceeded to organize permanently. The organization was soon completed. I was duly elected sergeant at arms of the Senate took the oath and the duties of said office. duties Are to execute the commands of the lieutenant governor who is the president of the Senate. So far i have had but Little to do compensation four dollars per Day. The Senate consists of 50 members 38 republicans and 12 democrats. The House 100 members 71 republicans 25 democrats 3 Green backers and 1 Independent. I presume the Green backers and the Independent formed a clique and held a caucus of their own. The said clique nominated a Man for u. S. Senator and stood by him. I am boarding with John a. Wilson a former citizen of Tackson county. He is still a staunch Democrat but a larger heart never beat within the trunk of Man than in the person of John a. Wilson. He has a Fine woman two Little boys and a pleasant Home a considering the Liard . The coldest Day we have had was the 29th of november. The thermometer on that Day stood 2 or 3 degrees below Zero. The greater portion of last week Vas like april. We have had but Little Snow so far. The deepest one w As not to exceed one Inch. Enclosed please find two dollars or the Banner. Send one copy to my address at Russell for 1878, and for the seventy five cents Over a end one copy to John a. Wilson no. 1115 Sycamore Street Des Moines Iowa. to the Banner .
