THURSDAY, November 5, 1901
Governor Cummins entered politics
upon his permanent removal to Des
Moines in 1878, but was not an aspir
ant for a public place and did not
hold any office until 1887, when he
was elected to represent Polk county
In the Iowa General assembly. He
took an active part in the presidential
campaign of 1892 and was chosen
presidential elector at large. He
presided over the convention which
selected the delegates to St. Louis in
1896, and was one of the delegates to
the national convention that year. The
same year he was elected national
committeeman for the ensuing four
years, and spent three months in Chi
cago with the national executive com
mittee in the conduct o£ that cam
In 1900 he was candidate for the or
flve of United States senator, to suc
ceed John H. Gear, the latter standing
for renomination, and the contest be
came memorable in the history of Iowa
The following year he was chosen as
Republican nominee for governor on
the first ballot, and in July, 1903, was
renominated without opposition. The
adoption of the biennial election
amendment extended his term one
year, so that in 1906 he was serving
his fifth year as governor. At this
time he entered the field for the third
term and was again successful.

In September 1869. he removed to
Elkador, Clayton County, Iowa,' and
his first employment was ii\ the Coun
ty Recorder's office. In August 1870,
he entered the United States Express
office at McGregor, remaining there,
either as clerk or messenger, until the
spring of 1871, when he was called to
Fort Wayne, Indiana, to the deputy
surveyorship of Allen County. His
work there attracted the attention of
the Cincinnati, Richmond and fort
Wayne Railway company, and two
months afterward he was chosen divis
ion engineer of the company, from
which position he was promoted to as
sistant chief engineer, and remained
with the road until its completion in
1871. On the first day of January, 1872,
he became assistant chief engineer in
charge of the construction of the
Northern Central Michigan Railway
and continued with it during the year.
Meanwhile he had been tendered the
place of assistant' chief engineer of
the Denver and Rio Grand Railway,
and left Michigan about Christmas in
1872, intending to go to Denver to ac
cept the position. Stopping off at Chi
cago enroute. he found a long desired
onportunity to secure employment In
a law office and study law, and he
abandoned civil engineering and enter
ed the law office of McClellan and
Hodges, where he remained for two
years and was then admitted to the
bar. He began pratice immediately
and stayed in Chicago until January,
187S. when re removed to Des Moines.

For the information of the farmers
who expect to compete for the various
prizes, the publicity department of the
exposition has issued the following:
Select the type of ears that indicate
the largest possible yield consistent
with safe maturity and type character
istic. The exhibitor should study type
characteristics and undertake to se
lect the entire number of ears re
quired for each entry of a uniform
character that, indicates the strongest
breed or type. It is unforunate to
have even a single ear showing mix
ture. The out-cross may be earlier
or later than the true type and may
cause the progeny to revert or degen
erate toward a mongrel.
Do not get the Idea that "Show
corn is different, from the type of corn

Many Judges to be Used:
The National Corn exposition judges
will be selected from different states
and will be guided by the score card
standard that prevails in your respec
tive state. It is suggested that you
write your state Experiment station
and ask for a copy of score card
which explains the standard in detail
The judge from each state will at
tempt to place the award upon the
type of corn that will give the largest
yield, consistent with safe maturity
in your respective state.
While it is important, to have ears
of corn showing straight, rows, and
tips and butts well filled out in strong
uniform way, these points are not as
Important as many exhibitors think
The shape of ear should be cylindri
cal and slightly tapering toward the
tip: The length and circumference
should be as large as it is safe to
grow in your district and mature be
fore freezing weather.
Select Good Ears.
Kernels should be reasonably uni
form in width, thickness and depth
The depth and shape of kernel and
size of cob determines the relat.iv
amount, of shelled corn per bushel
However, kernels should not be too
deep for safe maturity in your district
Excessive starcliiness. chaffy or im
mature ears must be avoided.
Use great care to select ears that
have not been frozen, or frosted, for
even a light frost while there is yet
excessive moisture in the ear may en
tirely destroy the vitality.
Ears should be, in good market con
dition which means reasonably free
No ears will be shelled by the
judges at Omaha. The judge will not
discount ears that have had kernels
removed, in making awards at prelim
