THEY MEET AXD HATE
GOOD TIME IX SPITE OF
New Organization Perfected.
The Meeting Uotiiitl to lie
still In Much eol Tor
Tho unfavorable weather nlmest
spoiled the Old Settlers' picnic. Still a
goodly number were present from all
partB of tho southern half of tho county.
Tho thtee stockades built for protection
against Indians by the fiot tiers of 1870 nt
Red Cloud, Guide Rock and Edna were
nil represented. L. D. Thomas came
all tho WBy from Elm Creek. Undo
Walker brought his sevonty-oight years
from Farmers creek, and was tho oldest
man on the grounds. Eliaha Woodward
won up from Guide Rock with tho nows
that ho wns Grandpa Woodward, whilo
his grandchild's mother wns born in
Webster county. What old settler can
beat that f Thero are some who can
equal it, but their names do not occur
to tho writer. Mr. Dickerson nnd wife
were present. Mrs. Dickereon's father
whr Uncle Hardy, ono of tho tlrst com
mieeioneru of -the county. Aunt Betsy
was not there, she was missed. John
and Gottliob Kueecr wore thero to re
mind Joe Garbcr how, in 1870, as they
first npprouchod tho stockade, Joseph
pointed a gun at them supposing them
to bo Indians. Of course Allen Aycrs
was there, but n littlo silent and shame
faced. You see Allen went back on us
once and thought ho would try Ten
ucEBee, and ho doesn't walk hb proudly
amongst tho old fellows ns ho would if
ho hadn't done that. Chris Cox and
wife jou may be sure wero there, nnd of
course Joe Holcomb and his sister Mrs.
A meson, would come in nny kind of
nealhor to u gathering of old settlers.
Uncle Holdrego gavo in to tho weather,
so did scores of others, and wo don't
blnmo them, but thero were at least a
hundred present, nnd each ono told of
suveral others that intended to come,
but wero scared out by the storm. Even
Emanuel Petors and Donald McCallum,
I ho first two in tho county, failed to put
iu an appearance, Thero is no oxcuho
for Peters, becauso he ie only a boy
thut Is liu wiib twenty-fivo years ngo
just old enough to vote Uut those of
us who were thero had n royal time.
First of courso was dinner and then the
women chatted whilo the men elected
officers and transacted business.
Then tho Hon. I. 13. Hampton made
fie best talk of his life, and demonstrate
eJ that the old settlers were moro prcs-
porous than the friends they had left in
tho older states.
Then Oliver McCall told some stories
of lire in 1871, and told them well.
Oliver labors under the delusion that
none of the old settlers are growing old,
and thinks they will never die. He
duesu'i know that his beard is white
and that tho top of his heud is gottiug
bnre, very bare.
G. W. Knight made ono of his bright,
entertaining i-peeuhet, reminiscent of
struggle nnd peril, humor and serious
Hers of 1871.
Joo Gin her, well Jrsrph flunked out
right. While at dinner Joe told n story
and pomebody wanttd him to prove it
by a presont witneFP, uud.Joeeph refut-cd
point blank, to inalto u speech.
