Chicago, Dec. 4.—The d'tails of the markings made by the judges in the recent stock show held at Chicago in dicate above all that Iowa students oi the state agricultural college are far ahead of all others on this contin ent in all arounnd ab..-*y to judge cat tie, horses, sheep and swine. In all around excellence the recor made by the Iowa boys who made the trip to Chicago is not approached by that made by any other team. Th.* students from the Ontario agriculture! college, whose ancestors have given to them the instinctive abil'ty to juudge, and who have Unproved their Instincts by life on the farm and study in college, were bested by the boys from Iowa. In the judging of horses the Iowa students completely outstripped all competitors. Nearly a hundred and fifty points separates Iowa from its nearest competitor, the Ohio team. In the ranking of cattle, the Iowans still forged to the front. They were close ly pressed by the Ontario students, who came, to the show primed for this event. Iowa was seven points ahead In the total, only the exceptional wor:c of Wentworth of the Ames team keep ing Iowa in front. Fall Twice. As might be expected Iowa fell down in the judging of sheep. Iowa does not raise the sheep that some of ,the neighboring states do. and the em phasis is not placed there. But Iowa did poorly in a place wnere it would naturally be thought that Iowa would be on top. Iowa ranked a poor third wWhen you go Gunning Game or Business you will need a.

Iowa is the I great hog raising state, and the ill showing In the judging of swine is un natural. To the Missouri college must go the credit of having the highest individual performer. Cochran of that school scored first, with O'Donnell of Iowa second. Wentworth of the Iowa team was not In the horse judging contest or he would have been in the lead with a fair margin If he had been able to do well in the horse ring. Iowa had six out of the first ten in the judging of horses. Wentworth tool? first place in the judging of cattle, hogs and sheep. He ranked first in the judging of cattle alone. Profecsors Good. Not only did the students of Iowa college conquer but when it is known that five of the eight professors coach ing the team* are graduates of the Ames Institution, the still more re markable nature of the work of th",t agricultural college on the part of the professors is made evident.

Courtney will have to be retired again at the present or Jan uary term of the district court. It now develops that a second will of the late Hlizabeth A. Courtney aas been dis covered and that the case will again be heard on that point. While the sums involved are not large, about $3,000, the will case has been one of the hardest contested suits tried in the Wapello county court in several years. At the last trial Alonzo Courtney suceeded in breaking ais mother's will which had given nearly the entire estate to Alice Court ney. At that time it was alleged that the defendant used coercion in secur ing a will favorable to her. This was proved to be true to the satisfaction of the jury and the will was ordered set aside, which had the effect of giv ing to Alonzo Courtney, the only son, the entire estate of his mother. The provisions of the second will which, it appears, turned up just after the first will case had been tried, is not publicly known and will not be until the next trial of the case on the merits of the new will.
