Webster County Corn is Excellent

Crop Along the Interurban Line Best Between This City and the State Capital.

According to the reports which have been brought back to the city by members of the local tribe of Red Men who were in attendance at the initiation ceremonies at Des Moines on Thursday, Webster county has the best prospects of a bumper corn crop of any of the territory traversed by the Fort Dodge, Des Monies & Southern.

The crop in this county is in every way better than in the territory south of hear, while that in Boone county is better than in the country farther south, evidencing the fact that this section was more favored with rains at the proper season. In many places the husks are noticed to be turning color and the corn is rapidly maturing, and even should a frost come there is little danger that serious damage would result.
