ter of good roads territory and cer
tainly we had done much towards
bringing, about tho excellent roads
throughout the west. The Indian said
that in the early days any road look
ed like a'good road to an Indian, but
of late this view has changed and In
dians are becoming more and more
interested In the work of building
permanent highways. In speaking of
the roads he has traveled so far he
stated that the roads in Crawford

Railroad Has a Water Problem.
Manning, July 2—The Milwaukee
railroad has been up against the real
thing on the water question recently.
This spring, alter several attempts
to find water near the new depot suf
ficient to supply their needs, it was
found necessary to go about a quarter
of a mile west of the water tank,
which had been built near the station.
Work was started several weeks
ago to lay pipe from the water tank
to the well. To reach the well it was
necessary to cross the Northwestern
right of way. Everything was lovely
until the Milwaukee workmen reached
the North western and started to dig
a ditch. Tiio Northwestern ofllcials
objected to laying of water pipes un
der their raidroad tracks and work
has been stopped. The Milwaukee is
watching and waiting for a chance to
slip the pipes under the tracks nnd
the North western has her decks all
cleared for action should they start

by Crow, though it belonged to Fin
lay. Iu striking tho farm wagon the
two farmers were pitched out and
landed on the roadside. The horses
ran off with part of the gears, and the
rest of the wagon was demolished.
When the farmers gathered them
selves together they were horrified to
Eee that one of th men in the wreck
ed auto was bleeding profusely though
the other seemed uninjured, investi
gation soon revealed the fact that
Finlay was dead as a result of the
crash. His throat was cut as with
a knife uy glass from the broken
windshield, and his breast was punc
tured by other glass fragments. The
machine was not so bndly demolished,
however. Sheriff Hamilton was noti
fied of tiie accident and ho Instructed

ing to witnesses. A keg of beer was
found in the wreck of the car. it
was shown that they left town at
speed of 35 miles an hour. Finlay

Goodrich Township. July 7—Special
Forty-lour years ago Saturday the
biggest celebration ever held in De
loit. occurred where I'ncle George
Landon now resides. There were few
people, hut everyone put their shoul
der to the wheel and a large bowery
of leafy shade extended to the south
gate of Mr. London's home and there
were three or four large tables to ac
commodate thoso who came. The
busy housewives came with tubs, boil
ers and pails heaped high and all
were on equal footing, as it should
be. Many families came twenty-five
miles with ox teams to celebrate tho
day. The writer was only a little girl
but can remember her father, L. F.
Morris, as a busy man that day. Her
mother roasted a pig and a lamb quar
ter, and it was tho best she ever
tasted. Not many of those who help
ed to celebrate the day are left, but
among them are L. F. .Morris and his
eldest daughter. Mrs. Newton, the
Nowcom family, George Winans, Aunt
Lucy Dobson. Mrs. Ilorr, Mrs. 10, A.

First Settlers in Iowa.
The first white men, so far as is
known, who lived permanently in the
Iowa country were threo Frenchmen
who were given grants of land along
tho Mississippi river by the Spanish
government which then had control of
this region. One of theso first settlers
was Jullcn Dubuque, after whom the
city and county of Dubuque are named.
He was given a grant of land which
included the lead mines operated by
him near the site of the city which
bears his name, and here lie lived un
til his death in 1810. Further up the
present site of McGregor in Clayton
county were the cabins of Basil Giard,
who occupied a land grant of about
5860 acres, cultivating a part of it
from 179(5 to 1808. "More can bo told
of tho Spanish grant of the 30th of
March, 17yn, to Louis Honore or Tes
son," says Mr, Jacob Van der Zee In
tho July number of "The Iowa Journal
of History and Politics," published by
the State Historical Society of Iowa.
"Zenon Trudeau gave him permission
to mako a settlement within Sac and
Fox territory. upon 7056 arpents of
land, on the site of the present town of
Montrose in Lee county. Tesson built
cabins, cultivated a small patch, plant
ed an orchard of apple trees and lived
upon his claim from 1708 until 1S05."
Fourth of July in 1838.
A member of tho research staff of
tho State Historical Society of Iowa
recently found an interesting account
of the celebration at Fort Madison on
July 4, *1S38, tho day on which the
government of the Territory of Iowa
wont into operation. The most prom
inent guest who was invited to be pres
ont on this occasion was the famous
Indian chief. Black Hawk. A ban
quet was held and after he had been
properly toasted Black Hawk made a
ipeech In which ho said, in part:
"It has pleased tho Great Spirit
ttyat I am here today—I have eaten
with my white friends. The earth is
our mother—we are now on it—with
the GreM Spirit •|w*ve us—it is good.
I hope we are all friends here. A few
winters ago 1 was fighting you—I did
wrong, perhaps, but that is past—it is
buried—let it be forgotten. I was
once a great warrior—I am now poor.
I am now old. I have looked upon the
Mississippi since I have been a child.
I love the great river. I have dwelt
upon its banks from the time I was an
Infant. I look upon it now. I shake
hands with you and as it Is my wish,
I hope you are my friends."

All that tiie farmer does he does at
tho risk of losing 365 days of hard

he plants his early grain lie does it oil
