MANY FRIENDS MEET
FOR PLEASANT VISIT
The Thirty-Second Annual Reunion
of Old Settlers Has Come and
The Old Settlers association cele
brated their 32nd annual picnic at
the grounds southwest of I'nion last
Saturday. The arrangements were
for a festival of friendship and re
newing of the "olden time" for two
days both Friday and Saturday, but
the weather which we were glad to
have because it was the need rain,
prevented the meeting on Friday.
Saturday they were a little tardy in
arriving and the two days program
as much as could be was crowded
into Saturday afternoon. Many of
the numbers were omitted and others
shortened in order to get through
An excellent feeling prevailed, all
greeting their friends with hearty
handshakes and smiles, and the old
timers slapping each other on the
back in expressing their good feel
ings for the boom of pure friend
ship and enjoying the fellowship
and good health, which is one of the
peculiarities of this section. Again
they could not help but think how
that lower piece of wheat turned
-:t and the oats done, with all the
hay saved, not lost by the rain and
having to keep the rows of the potato
patch closed to prevent the "ta
ters" from running out in piles from
the rows and getting sun-burned
and one of the best prospects for
corn since the time of the grasshop
pers in 1879. Why should not all
be wearing broad smiles.
The opening address was made by
Creede Harris, which wa sone of wel
come, in this he expressed, the wel
come which flowed from every mem
ber of the old settlers association
nnd every citizen of I'nion. He had
been preceded by a prayer from the
Rev. W. A. Taylor, involving divine
euidar.ee for all and returning the
thanks which were due for the friend
ships, the associations, the prosper
ity and the abundance of all good
things which the hand of a living
and gracious Father had given his
Following Mr. Harris was an ad
dress by the Rev. Taylor K. Surface,
who formerly ministered to the
church near I'nion. but who has been
in the northern portion of the state
for a number of years. His address
was one of reminesences and local
history, he recalling many incidents
familiar to many pioneers of this
portion of the country. Following

reminescent character, saying that
he had come to Plattsmouth thirty

County Commissioner Not Well
C. F. Harrisv the county commis
sioner, has been kept to his home for
some time on account of an indispo
sition which has attacked him, but
hopes to be about again in a short
time. Mr. Harris, speaking about
the repairs of the court house, said
that the matter in his opinion, would
have to be given to the voters for
final decision as the amount involved
to place the building in the condi
tion to preserve the structure would
require more outlay that the com
missioners were empowered to spend
without the sanction of the people
