"Gustavus Adolphus" was the sub
ject of the address of Arthur E. Swan
son, the representative of the fresh
man class. Mr. Swauson described In
entertaining style the various incidents
in the life of the "Snow King," and
averred that as a man he should be
ranked above Napoleon, Caesar, and
other great leaders of the past, even
though not entitled to as high a place
as a general. Unfortunately, Mr.
Swanson hesitated an instant before
recalling a portion of his selection, and
his per cent undoubtedly suffered on
this account. It should be said in this
connection that the speaker had been

NEW MOUND AT 0K0B0JI
Expected to Throw Much Light on
Character of This Giant
Discoveries that have swept away
traditions of early Iowa and prefaced
ancient history of the state with an
epoch lost in mystery until the explor
er's spade uncovered relics of an un
known race in a mound at Okoboji, are
to be supplemented with systematic
ethnological research. Fred and Allen
Pearson of Cedar Rapids will this
summer pursue further the exploration
they began last September. Eminent
ethnologists declare that the ancient
history of Iowa is to be rewritten, as
relics taken from the mounds give
evidence of a race unknown to tradi
tion or lore of the state. New light
will be thrown on the mystery of the
early ages or Iowa by the investiga
tions now at hand.
That northern Iowa was inhabited
by the Algonquins centuries ago is the
conclusion formed by ethnologists in
light of recent discoveries. History
has it that this race had never touched
the shores of Spirit Lake and Okoboji.
and attributed the presence of the
mounds to other tribes who had erect
ed them for lookouts. ' Hut it has re
mained for the explorer to overthrow
legends and tradition and resurrect
relics of an epoch hitherto unknown to
writers of ancient Iowa history.
Strang nntl Wonderful IVoplf.
A race of gigantic stature and super
ior intelligence skilled in the aits and
crafts, such were the ancient Algon
quins. Civilization on a plane ap
proaching that of the 20th century had
been established ages ago near our
northern chain of lakes. While the
system of government and method of
living was no doubt tribal the relics
of the race scattered about in th
mounds indicate a high degree of
knowledge and skill.
Curiously fashioned earthenware,
beautifully illuminated with scenes of
the woodland, the hunt and chase ami
the battlefield, marvelous creatious in
copper vases and ornaments, engraved
with characters of an unknown lan
guage, these are but a few of the rem
nants picked up in the sepulchre.
FurKiilIrn to Tradition.
Forgotten to tradition anil tribe lore
unremembered in Indian legends and
myths, so far back did their existence
date, seven Algonquin kings have slept
for ages in a mound on the borders of
Spirit lake. From acorns scattered on
the mound great oaks have grown, and
from their seed other trees have
sprung. Fossil remains on the hill tell
of a glacial epoch that followed, and
other physical changes on the earth's
surface. And now, ages afterward,
remnants of the ancient race are re
turned from the unknown and its at
tainmentts engrossed upon the pages of
trpnlrbrt of Royalty.
Grouped around a central monument
of granite were foun! in the mound the
remains of seven men. a woman and a
child. That they were royal person

badges of office, such as sceptre and

hands. Glittering ornaments, copper
bracelets and bright beads bedecked
the remains. The baby held in tight
embrace a gaily dressed doll, and by
its side were trinkets that delight child
The heads were firmly bound to the
monument with thick strips of tanned

was erected a memorial slab. When

Beneath the tangled undergrowth, so
far under the surface that its presence
was not revealed until excavation be
gan, a beaten path encircled the exter
ior of the mound. The track was worn
smooth from travel and footprints were
visible in the soil.
At regular intervals, ethnologists be
lieve, the tribe in religious observance,
walked in solemn procession around
the mound chanting their memorials to
departed royalty. Year after year and
century after century these rites and
ceremonies were observed, and the
