DEAK DICK.—Believing
that yoar nu­
merous readers are deeply interested in
the prosperity of the State of their adop.
tion, I drop you a line, giving an im
perfect pkctcb of my observations, made
during a living trip through the above
named counties. I M't your beautiful
and prosperous city about the 20th of
October, for a business trip through
Northern Iowa, tbis being my first trip
through bis portion of tbe State. I
found much to inter^Bt and atntise inc.
It is a vcrv easy matter to trace your
route on the map from onu county seat
to another,—the distance there seems
short atid smooth, but I assure you it is
quite another mntter when you come to
tiavel it—when mile after mile, uphill
and down, through wood and mire some
times to your ax e, and ever an 1 anon
across the wide prairi" where you have
no land mark*, or gnide board, and a
blind cow path to follow, found in tome
necluded sections by the name of "the
big rod.'' 1 said to myself sometimes
"if this is their big road, I'd like to know
what they call asm-ill one." Iowa has
.j5,0-15 tquare miles of teiritoiy, but
when we come to travel over it, it set ins
500,000-he becomes so fatigue at times.
Now il I had travelled over as much
teiritory in almost any portion ol the
Old Wrrld, I would pass lor an exten
sive tourist—would have visited ths
principal points of interest in foveral
states, or provinces, llo that thinks
this State presents an uninteresting, mo
notonous appearance, needs but to take
trip over it to unJeceive himself. Ev
cry day and hour, almost, the landscape
varies the rolling prairies rcsemlle so
many immcnee ocem vaves, as they fiiie
away in ibe distance, the numerous
groves and belts of tinib-r, and silvery
rivulets and rivers (nppearing like a sil
ver thread upon the hrown back ground)
often afford a beautiiul landscape. Wo
have never yet heard any one who has
viewed the State,say that sho was not ful
ly untitled tj the aj puliation of "beauti
ful land" the fii^nitiance in Indim dia
lect of the word "Iowa." This Slate em
braces the largest area of tillable land,
in one body, that exht* in the United
States and I have ow travelled through
nearly every county in the State, and *rn
free to say that
I atn very much pleased with North
em Iowa—I find everything in a more
prosperous cotidi:ion. Not only aro the
farms larger and better cult:viited, but
the people ate more intelligent and refin
ed, and mine hospitable they have bet
ter churches and schools and 'more
of them. If a child LIOWS up here to
manhood, in ignorance it is not from a
want of educationi-l facilties. Every
townsl. ip almost has a school house, and
generally every neighborhood, where his
education will be as free to him as the
air he breathes.
The farmers in Northern IOWB, as a
general thing are prosperous. Corn has
in many st-c'.ions been A fa lure—iome
pi»e( s from drought others from frost,
but they get enough for wheat to make
good their loss on corn, and farmers are
generally getting out of debt.
War widows are increasing, in fact it
is almost dangerous for a stranger—ail
able-bodied mau—to travel through this
country without a guardian to protect
him. He is everywhere put with the
quest'on, "why ain't you in the army
You have just as good a right to leave
your family and go to war as my hus
band." When they hear my ftoiyofthe
destitute condition of the numerous war
widows and numberless children, on my
tra* cls, they subside—besides I make it
a point to pay my bills, which averages
from 50 cents to $1 lor stopping over
night—big thing 1 Old .ids are every
where incicas.ng, and old bachelors de
creasing, and tliev say unless something
is done lor the universal
country,
tbe
war must como to a stop.
We have had several miniature snrw
storu s, enough lallir.g weather to make
the roads very bad in places. I h:ive
not been able to find any liurtis Horses
on the trip, and r.arrv a
WATSON
I bad tbe pleasure cf spending a day
with our former townsman J. W.
Churchill and family. Tluy arc very
pleasantly located in the Southwestern
part of Berrien County, and have one of
the most deiigbtlu! residences in the
Countv. Their numerous friend* should
uever come this way without paying them
a visit, which will bo pleasant to the
members of ihe family, and the visitors,
Mr. Churchill is already doing much to
improve this suction of the State. He
has subscribed librally towards erecting
a new Episcopal Church, and is leadi»g
off io several good enterprises. May he
and his enjoy lonj iife and prosperity.
The people are for arigeous prosecu
tion of the wp.r, regardless of politics. I
hear no trumbling about taxes. The far
mers have p'enty of money, and will
shell out liberally to restore peace.
There is a honvy emigration ol Sweeds
and Norwegians into Northern Iowa and
they bring rugf.id Constitutions, econom
ical habits industry and gold with them.
Some of the finest cattle 1 have seen
are scattered through norihern Iowa, and
sheep-ra'aing will be very extensively
entered into next year. Some of the
very beat breeds of sheep are being iu
