The movement started about two months ago in the northeast part of the county for the holding of a reun ion of the old settlers of Clifton, Col fax, Pleasant Valley and Guilford-tps at Benedict, culminated in a grand suc cess on Wednesday, the 8th, and led to the organization of a County Old Set tler's Society. Of the preliminary or ganization representing the said four townships, A. F. Kriser, of Pleasant Valley-tp., was president or chairman and by virtue thereof he presided at the initial meeting held this week in a gracious and efficient manner. Singleton's grove, hard by the Ver digris, just west of Bendict, was the spot chosen for the reunion. Though the weather was dry and oppressively hot and the air filled with dust, the gathering was large, being estimated at from 2,500 to 3,00U, While the great bulk of the crowd came from the four townships mentioned, there were scores of pioneers present fiom other townships and a goodly number from the most distant parts of the county, which showed the deep and widespread interest felt in the undertaking. The vehicles and horses filled several acres of timber laud and the crowd possessed some acres additional. The grove is an admirable in every respect the best of shade abounding and water being in abundant supply and readily accessible. a program of exercises had bten prepared and was carried out in per iect detail and to the credit of those to whom parts were assigned. After delivery of the welcome address by Hon. S. S. Bendict, the exercises were interrupted by a motion to appoint a committee of three, one from each Commissioner district, to formulate plan for the organization of a Wilson co. Old Settler's Society and to report before adjournment. Chairman Krl ser appointed as such committee S. S Benedict for the Second district, Jno e. iiiiinore for the First and J.
