The following poem was read by Mrs. Lottie Cramer and by re
quest of the old settlers is published in full :
Ode to Old Settlers ,
The destiny of all nations , where'er you roam ,
And their beneficent institutions , the school , the church , the home ,
Upon patriotic impulses and a high sense of public duty depend ,
The noble deeds of those who have shaped a country's history lend
Emulation to awaken and nurture these sentiments.
Therefore we are called upon to cherish with high veneration
The heroic deeds of the discoverers and maintainers of our nation.
Such a one as Columbus crossed the unknown deep and found a
new land ,
Then England to settle it sent a stalwart band.
They were so strong and bold that their new settlement soon' became old
Then with a desire to know and gain more
Daniel Boone pushed to a western river's shore.
Little he feared the savage craft ,
And at the hunter's tales only laughed.
Thence in 1S04 Lev/is and Clark explored our Nebraska fair ,
And paved the way to habitation there.
So it runs ; emblazoned ever on history's pages
Are the first men of all ages.
As it is with the nation and state ,
Thus it becomes the country's fate.
From a territory to a state we grew ,
With counties large and small not a few ,
And of all , the largest is our Cherry ,
To which brave men have come by rail and ferry.
"The poet sings of sunny France , fair olive laden Spain ,
The Grecian Isles , Italia's smiles , and India's torrid plain ;
Of Egypt , countless ages old ; dark Africa's palm" and bounty.
Let me acclaim the land I name my own dear tiherry County
I love every inch of her prairie land ,
Each table above the river's strand ,
Every drop of water clear that forms a rippling for the listening ear ,
Every blade of grass , and the growing pine ,
Within the gates of this land of mine ;
But most of all the beauty
Lies in the friend's dear lives of duty ,
To whom in my feeble way I attempt to give an ode today.
Black and Palmer , Harm and Pettycrew ,
Miller , Hubbard , Bullis , Granger and Hobson too ,
And all other Cherry pioneers
From the northern to the southern boundaries , .
Today with glad acclaims
All of us greet thy names.
Since first we came here have come and gone twenty years
Of hardships , privations , tails and fears.
Twenty years what thought
What memories dark and dear can trace what thou hast wrought ?
When first ye came , to bid you welcome , was a fenceless prairie and
pure air ;
Even water close at hand was denied there.
But a hundred feet 'neath mother earth's face
Ye delved and freed the precious liquid from its hiding place.
But progression has been thy lot , and by a much easier way ,
Drills and augers it is done to-day ;
And the wind doth turn the mill-wheel
Where once thy strength was expended upon rope and.reel.
More then than now beyond thy reach was lumber ,
So of sod , houses ye builded quite a number ,
But now many a sod hut crumbled to its base ,
To a stately .dwelling giveth place.
Once the heavy wagon was the only vehicle of work and pleasure ,
That across the open prairie dragged at leisure.
This by bicycles , buggies and phaetons has been succeeded ,
And we hear that one pioneer has to him an automobile deeded.
Too , we now must keep the section line ,
For we hear some one say "That land is mine. "

Brownlee last Friday proving up

And today thy spreading fields are yielding recompense for honest toil.
Once the dainty golden-rod peeped above the virgin sod ,
Where toclay thy planted products wave
Ready for mow and bin and cave ;
Grain and cattle from thy fields , nature's richest bounty yields.
And for those who have attention given are fruits and trees
Fanned by the fragrant breeze ,
To bless some weary traveler and brighten life's dull way.
jtfot to thce alone , however for all things done , belongs the praise
But alsoto thy noble helpmate always
Who ever willingly , uncomplainingly bore her share
Of poverty , work and care.
She who Jane's clothes for Mary cut down ,
And into a black one her old brown
Dress made , by a process of dying learned ,
And Henry's coat for Thomas turned
Aad who from a scanty larder could fix a tempting meal
Was , and is a helpmate that is real ;
And by saving pennies earns as much as if she made.
Even while in thy harder lot
An education thou ne'er forgot ,
"But with earnest night
Turned thine eyes to the light" I
And public schools upon our county spread
Over one hundred in these twenty years that's sped.
And here and there a church we'll see
Acknowledging His love so free.
To tell all thou has wrought a more presuming tongue than mine needs
But will be remembered ever thy valient and heroic deeds ,
Penned where cfi'accment comes not
And the brave arc not forgot.
And now the best wish I can give you
Is that * 'loyal hearts , dear pioneer , for thec beet trim. " .
May-the Creator's richest bleesings be given thee ,
The air with incense laden blow across thy prairies free
And smiling and beautiful heaven's dome
E'er bend o'er thy frontier home.
