Steuben County Honored,

Before the opening of the Louisiana Purchase exposition of 1904, Frank G. Robertson, of Angola, at the request of the Indiana State commission, sent a number of farm products raised in Steuben county to be placed on exhibition for competition with every other state in the Union. Among the articles was a speciman of clover seed raised by some Steuben county farmer, and sent in by Squire Appleman, and last week he received from the Superior jury of awards, a large diploma appropriately designed, awarding to Steuben county the first place in the raising of clover seed. Mr. Appleman is highly pleased over the result, has had the diploma framed and prizes it very highly.

The central figure of the Diploma is a robust, clear eyed maiden Columbia in her first youth, looking forward with unclouded brow intent upon a future beyond the act which she represents, planing one hand in sign of possession upon the globe, typifying the territorial acquisition, which is offered by her sister France seated at her right. Simultaneously from her other hand she passes on the torch of progress to her messenger the youth of her country who with winged feet stands ready to depart on his mission of civilization towards the Western sun which irradiates the sky. Columbia is draped with the flag, chosen as the symbol above all others, which is recognized to the farthest limits of the world and denotes the country where was the Exposition that issued the Diploma. France wearing the costume of the period of the cession of the Louisiana Territory is by a voluntary anachronism depicted with the Imperial crown, for while the act of cession was accomplished in the interim of the Consulate it was a step in the progress of Napoleon, and Imperial France remains in our memories today as relinquishing the territory which our younger nation has so notably developed. The border of a Classic-Empire design encloses the names of the States of the Union, prominence being given to those comprising the territorial acquisition, while the fourteen stars inthe tablet below still further emphasize their importance.
