Sketch of His Career.
George Franklin Wright was born In
Warren, Washington county, Vermont, on
December 6, 1833, and was a son of the late
Franklin Asher Wright, whp died In. this
city on October 5, 1878. Both of his parents
were of English-Scotch ancestry. He spent
his boyhood on a farm. At the age of 17
he began his academic education at West
Randolph. Vt under the tutorage of the
late Hon. Austin Adams of Dubuque, who
waa twice chief justleu of the state. In'
the spring of 1855, following Ills majority,
he came to Iowa and settled In Keosauqua,
Van Buren county,1 where he commenced
the study of law with the firm of Wright,
Knapp & Caldwell, composed of ex-United
States Senator George C. Wright of Des

tinued until Judge Caldwell was called to
the United States bench at Little Rock,
Early In 1861 Mr. Wright, In response to
President Lincoln's call for volunteers, en
listed, and In conjunction with Captain
J. M. Tuttle, afterward general, raised a
company of volunteers Mn. Van Buren
county, pf which he was elected first lieu
tenant, receiving his commission from the
hands of Governor Kirkwood, known as
Iowa's "war governor." The company be
came a part of the Second regiment of
Immediately before this. Judge Caldwell
having enlisted, the business of the firm
demanded Mr. Wright's return to Keosau
qua. He Immediately raised a company
of militia, was elected captain, and ten
dered the' services of the company to Gov
ernor Kirkwood for the protection of the
Iowa border In Van Buren county. The
offer was accepted, and the organization
was kept intact, being frequently called to
the border and Into the state of Missouri,
until tha rebels were driven out of that
state, when moat of the company enlisted
In and became a part of tha Fifteenth regi

analyses made by the Iowa Agricul

at th rooms of the department of agricul

In Iowa are adulterated wholesale and that
condlmental stock foods advertised as hav

Ically worthless. The matter Is to be
taken up by the directors of the depart
ment of agriculture, now In session here,
and It Is understood that sensational dis
closures as to the methods practiced" In
adulterating stock foods will be made at
the meeting tomorrow. A bill has been
drawn and the legislature 'will be asked to
enact It into law providing for an inspec
tion of theae foods by state authority.
Oat husks, corn cob chaff, corn hull and
tree bark are the Ingredients most com
monly used to adulterate the foods. , A
gnok of bran Is on exhibit at the rooms
of the department today which was pur
chased by the Agricultural college. The
sack to about three-fourths of Its depth Is
filled with bran and the remainder of the
sack I filled with (weepings from the floor
of the mill and Is mostly corn cob chaff
and oats chaff. The top Is filled with the
worthies material for the reason that the
farmer Is expected to dump It Into his bin
and the bran would then be on top. Many
feed mills, ISO tn number, were visited by
Prof. Michael of the chemical department
of the college to ascertain the real .condi
