—The failure of the Citizens’ Hank
at Prairie City, is much to be regretted.
The liabilities are estimated all the
way from 875,000 to 8100,000. The of
ficers of the bank claim that if that is
all they owed at the time, they will
pay every cent and will be able to re
sume ousiness in a few days. The
cause of the failure was the failure of
J. D. 1 loach, a former cashier of the
bank, who failed about ten days ago.
Mr. Koach had beeu cashier for twelve
or fourteen years and for several years
had been speculating in land, stock and
merchandise and had drawn on the
bank so heavily that when it became
known, the depositors commenced to
d:aw out and hence the bank was com
pelled to close. It is understood that
the Roach failure involves a consider
able number of the leading farmers
about there, but also that matters will
be made to take on a more pleasant
appearance soon.
—The Great Sante Fe System is now
undergoing re-organization, and the
turn of the wheel brings into the Pres
idency of that road, Mr. Allen Manvel,
who, some eight years ago, was con
nected with the Hock Island road at
headquarters, and was thence called to
the General Manager’s office of the Man
itoba line at St Paul. He has made
that road a great success, and leaves it
In the beet possible condition as the re
sult of his far-seeing, practical and
thoroughly efficient management. Mr.
Manvel has worked his way from the
bottom in railroad work. In every
place that he has occupied he has been
found industrious and giving the best
service that body and judgment could.
He made the work of his company his
own, aud graced it all with an honesty
and integrity that always tells, and in
the ends tells in the merit of practical
apprecation on the part of men in large
control. For years Mr. Manvel has
been recognized as one of the most
practical railroad men in the West,and
in his new field will have an oppor
tunity that comes to but few men. The
Sante Fe is a great corporation, with
an immense mileage, reaching from
Chicago to the Pacific coast, yet it is
greatly hampered, but not in any way
but that sound management will bring
it into line as one of the most certain in
profit making in the West. Mr. Man
vel will do this, if bis practical ideas
are to be given full sway and sweep.
Ilia old friends in lowa, who remember
him when with the Hock Island, have
every confidence that his new and great
place will find him just as capable and
certain to win, and they congratulate
ti m on the promotion that has thus
c tne bo him, aud to a life that has al
w iys been a model of splendid indus
u y and cloee application.
The Algoua Upper Des Moines, very
sensibly says: “If the newspapers pro
pose to advertise lowa they cannot do
l* tter than to recognize tbe work that
hns been done by the state agricultural
society, and to devote.uot one, but many
to encouraging tbe people to
make everything of the State Fair."
And that is true. A good county ox
State Fair is a superior agency in the
c invincing of the people that this lowa
land is great and rich, and inexhausti
ble in its fertility and resources of ev- j
wy kind and nature.
A great State Fair is a wonderful I
converting power of the State’s own
people to a greater love of their own
home. In an aggregated form they sec

—Mr. E. Foster, who has recently
been appointed a Genera) A sent In the
Department of Justice at Washing
ton, is the husband of Mrs. J.Ellen Fos
ter. They will make their home in
Washington hereafter.
—There is a row between Company
”CT and Company “G," Second Regi
ment, as to the result of a target shoot
at the recent encampment of that reg
iment. On the showing made by Cap
tain Wheelock the error should be ooi
rected, and the cup sent to its proper
winners—Company “G.”
—The Wapello County Democrats cm
Saturday nominated Col. liallingall for
the Senate, and J. H. Smith for the
House. The Colonel has no business in
the Senate, so the boys will proceed to
knock him out. He will go cut at first
on a pop fly, and brother Smith will go
with him.
—The Buena Vista Senatorial Dis
trict has made a very fiae nomination
in naming Mr. Mack as their standard
bearer. He is indeed a first class man
ie every way, and one who will, as he
always has, reflect credit upon the par
ty and the people. We congratulate
him on his preferment, and know that
the people will have a faithful servant
in every way.
—Three former lowa men have been
honored in South Dakota by Republic
ans to State offices. J udge Hen nett it
made one of the Supreme Judges, and
is a man of much legal force. John A.
Pickier, formerly of Muscatine, is nom
inated for Congress, and Mr. Pinkb tm
tor State Superintendent—and both of
these last named are graduates of the
State University. In every way will
they reflect credit upon their old and
new home as well.
—The Malvern “Leader,” with good
judgment, remarks: “Outside of one or
two papers of a dyspeptic temperament
that are always dissatisfied and con
tinually finding fault, we have seen no
iudication that Senator Allison, the
l*eer of any man in the Senate to-day,
is likely to have any serious opposition
in the Legislature.” That Senator Al
lison will be bis own successor is as
certain as be shall live—and the Sena
tor is in most excellent health.
—The State Auditor says that Ex-
Attorney General Smith McPherson
owes the Stale about $4,000 in the set*
mentof his accounts. Mr. Me. says
that he does not, and courts the fullest
investigation. Now, some man is
grossly wrong. If ('apt. Lyon makes
this charge without ground, he has
done a most wicked and culpable thing;
if it is true, then the accused officer has
beeu most careless, and his record ie
not that way. Straighten that right
up, and there’s law enough without any
counties not oveu a trace was noted.
All reports indicate that the drouth is
damaging to pastures, late corn and
late i ota toes.
Early planted and well tilled corn is
rapidly maturing and is doing well.
Some fields are already beyond danger
of damage by frost, and the bulk of
the crop will be well matured by Sep
tember 15. Tbe dry weather has un
doubtedly reduced the total yield of
coru 15 per cent below the estimates
made on the Ist of the month, but the
crop will be ample.
The harvest of clover seed will be
very large and of excellent quality.”
The Republican platform of lowa de
clares that
“We demaud the same protection (or (arm
products that is given to the products of labor
of other classes.’'
The Democratic free trade press is
given to laughing at this demand—just
as it does at all other demauds that
look for better things for the labor
It is well to note just what the agri
cultural imports to this country are.
Frof. J. R. Dodge, statistician of the ag
ricultural department, reports the im
ports of agricultural products in 1888,
as amounting to $318,502,000. Some of
the items given are as follows:

We hope to see such tariff legislation
as will give the amplest protection to
every item that the American farms
'can produce. And we want that pro
tection to amount to prohibition, abso
lute and total, 'that which an Ameri
can acre can produce is of the first im
portance to us. Aud the products of
the farm in every way must be put on
tbe same basis with every other indus
try in the land. The policy that Bis
marck has followed is not only wise
but tbe best type of statesmanship, and
we should be able to follow it. We
needlessly spend four huudred millions
of money away from home that should
be kept in our owu land, and made to
serve iu the employment of labor that
such a vast arnouut of commodity pur
chased represents. Emphatically the
lowa Republicans stand for home in
terests first and foremost.
Oskaloosa, September I—Editor
Herald', You doubtless noticed at the
Republican state convention at l>es
Moines a great many of the county del
egations wearing tufts of blue-grass iu
their button hole and hay seed over
their hats and shoulders. And possibly
you just assumed that these men wei e
of the regulated “hay seed” type and
made no farther investigation. If so
you could not have fallen farther short
of the truth in your conclusion. These
men were of the very highest type of
manhood of wnich it is lowa’s glory to
boast. Men of thrift, enterprise and
genius; but they were under the spell
which is now raging to almost a frenzy
in South Western lowa, the blue grass
raga Every thing of pursuit or pos
session throughout all this region has
come under the blue-grass spell. The
streets of Crestou are literally carpeted
with blue-grass, the windows and awn
ltigs aud doors of all business houses
are one continuous pauorama of blue
grass, the porches and windows, fenc
es and even the roofs of the houses are
a continuous surprise of blue-grass fau
lasiuis. Even the tables and dishes
are not exempt from the omnipresent
blue-grass. The harness of the horses
the wheels of the vehicles are made of
blue-grass so far as the eye can see.
Women are wearing blue-grass hats
and bonnets and dresses and the men
are not a whit behind. Follow this
animated moving blue-grass procession
out as far as the northern limits of the
city, and wonder of wonders, blue-grass
a thousand times intensified over all
that the eyes have yet seen.
A circular inclosure one hundred
laud thirty feet in diameter and
I forty-live feet high to the top
|of the perpendicular walls and
I one hundred aud forty feet high to the
| top of the spire over the central dour,
I all built of hay—the walls of bales ot
I hay and the dome and spire of thatch-
I work. Within is a second circle about
{sixty feet in diameter composed of
| posts which extend to the roof aud sup
| port the roof and dome. From these
| posts, which are about eighteen feet
apart, extend partitions Pack to the
outer wall and thus divide the space
between the two circles into dfteen
stalls, each of which is occupied by one
of the counties comprising the “Blue
grass league of south-west lowa.’ Here
is where the great display is found
each county vying with the others for
the finest display of its own products,
grasses being made most prominent in
each instance. Among the exhibits is
a man made of apples, a woman of blue
grass, a horse of onions and another of
heads of red top, a sheep ot oat heads,
with an exquisite display of fruits, veg
etables, grains aud glasses. The plan
of proceedure is to assign each of the
counties a day; the first concern of each
county is to get the greatest number of
people present on its day. The vice
president of the league from that
county is master of ceremonies for that
day. He brings from three to six of
the i>est talkers of his county and enter
taios the multitude by recounting the
wonderful products, facilities aud re
sources, etc. of his county. Each coun
ty invariably outdoing those preced
ing it in all these particulars. The
whole thing is a
Ito advertise southwestern lowa. Its a
success beyond what anybody outside
the counties comprising the league
would have thought possible. Over
thirty thousand dollars has been ex
pended, so I was told, in working up
and advertising the “Blue Grass
league.” They regularly advertise in
over two thousand newspapers, besides
thousands of circulars, etc., scattered
as thick as autumn leaves, it un
doubtedly is the biggest land agent
scheme yet, and if it does not succeed
it wiii not be the fault of the boomers.
O. 8. Morrow.
In addition to tbe above, Hon. bam
I Jones, who visited that place, drops us
the following: "There never was a bet
ter display of fruit aud grain at any of
the great expositions. The dimension
of the Gray’s Palace is 116 feet high,
100 feet square, 52 feet from the floor
Ito the ceiling, 22 feet to the square,
and the central dome 64 feet in diame
ter. In the center under the dome
was the Band’s stand aud speakers’
stand, aud was graced each day with
rioted men of lowa, such as Hon. Lafe
Young, Col. llepburu and others. The
tirst floor was divided into rooms suit
able for tbe display of the produce of
each county and was well represented.
In the gallery above was tbe Creston
fair, which made a tine show. Among
the attractions was a parlor. Every
thing iu it was made of all kinds of
grass and seeds, aud was beautiful to
the eye aud unique in design, and it
excited more of a crown than any place
in the palace. The carpet was beauti

seven towersjpn the building,—one of
them used as headquarters for the
newspapers. The building is a sub

Ottawa, August 26. 1889. — Editor
Herald:— The Herald is always wel
come because we learu something oi
the welfare, of our old fnemis aud
neighbors. 1 have been a subscriber
to the Herald since the fall of 1851,
aud have no reason to regret it. T. tries
iniKansaa have been rather dull tor a
year or two past, but the prospect for
tbe future seems to be much brighter.
Crops of all kinds are abundant and
most of the people in good spirits.
We hear that in your state prohibition
is a failure, and it is likely tbat you
hear the same about Kausas. But we
do not believe it about lowa and you
need uoFTrelieve it when they tell you
tbat it is a failure iq Kansas. We had
au old soldiers’ meeting iu Ottawa in
June last and it was supposed there
were from 15,000 to 20,000 people on the
grounds, and I looked around to see il
1 could find a man who was under the
influence of liquor but c.iuld not find
one. 1 then enquired of quite a num
ber of persons if they had seen one and
was invariably told they had uot. Now
if saloons had been open all over the
city we can scarcely believe that the
same could have been said, when we
consider that this vast crowd was gath
ered from nearly thirty counties and
some from neighboring states. To see
a drunk man staggering and reeling up
one of our streets in the most of our
towns iu Kansas, would be as great a
curiosity as it would to see a man lead
ing along a Rocky mountain lion or a
big black bear, and people would be seen
running out of their houses about as
much to see the one as the other. Mr.
Editor, the decree has gone forth “the
saloon must go,” and the quicker the
better for the good of the people of the
whole country. Now as Kansas and
lowa in the west have raised the war
cry, let there be no backward move
ment but march forward until every
slate in this glorious union shall fall
into line aud one tremendous shout
shall rise to heaven that the great en
emy of man is destroy ed.
Who could estimate the happiness
which would arise to mankind if ti ls
great black river of misery, crime and
death could l>e dried up through the
length and hieadth of our laDd and the
world. Let every temperance man and
woman in the land stand firm, and let
tbe word fail never be heard in our
ranks. Let victory be the watch word
and God and right will prevail.
Yours respectfully,
John Jefferies.
Her Life la Slowly |>ut Surely KObtug
Away—A Pathetic Story.
New York, Sept 4. Mra Delia Stewart
Parnell is slowly dying of old age and lta
attending infirmities at Bordentown, N. J.
The doctors say that her days aro fast com
ing to a dose. Mrs. Parnell was found at
her home Monday in a teebie condition, but
•he forced a faint smile when informed of
the rumor of her death. She said:
“No, I am not dead but dying; my life is
slowly but surely ebbing away, and I realize
that my days are num
bered. As they say
out West, I am dying
with my boots on and
1 will not give up until
I have to go to bed.
My life has been one
long series of trials
and tribulations as far
back as I can remem
ber but during my
darkest hours I never
thought of dying, fori
expected to live to see
the Irish people on
their uative heath led
lUUk pa itNXLi. from under the bond
age they suffered from English tyran
ny and oppression. Hut I do not be
lieve I will see that happy day,
for, while the light of oiy existence is
flickering, the hope of Ireland's immediate
freedom is lessening day by day. My son has
been trampled upon for his views on the rights
of the Irish people, and my heart has bled tor
every Insult he has recetved. While he Is suf
fering martyrdom abroad I am being trampled
upon at home. A certain man is trying to
blast my reputation, tor be has instituted a
lawsuit against me for the recovery
of a sum of money wkicn I do not
owe him. This has necessitated a great deal
of labor on my part and has ruined my consti
tution. For over six months I have been over
hauling papers and documents which have
been accumulating about fifteen years. I have
gone through every one of those papers
three times. and my eyesight has
been ruined. I can not see any more,
and although it is necessary for uie to go
over the papers again l cau not do it. The
serves of my eyes are burning and I fear
that within a short time I shall be totally
blind, If ruy eyes are not closed forever
before that time comes. The work must be
done, however, for there are certain papers
which must be found before the stand
which I have taken in this lawsuit may be

To-day we were gladdened by tbe appearance
t of a heavy cloud from the west that promised a
1 good shower of rain. But we did not get enough
to lay the dust on the roads. We hope it will
i come aoou iu sufficient quantity to thoroughly
r soak the earth, for pasture and stock water are
- getting short. Corn Is “flrtng” badly and late
pieces are shortened in quality aud quantity of
! yield. Late potatoes are prematurely ripened
and the yield will be light, we predict.

■ are very good, much better than tbe crop of last
year. Apples and grapes are plentiful aud of
i tine quality.
