The Johnson County Old Settlers’ Association
closed its forty-third annual reunion and picnic, at the
Johnson county fair grounds, last evening, with the
election of its officers for the ensuing year.

A sumptuous picnic dinner at mid-day; a business
meeting, a literary, musical, and oratorical program
provided the entertainment of the afternoon, with a
thousand and one reminiscences interwoven.

E. E. JOHNSTON SPEAKS

The main address of the day was that of E. E.
Johnston, who gave an interesting and instructive discourse, to which the large audience paid unfailing attention.

Among other things, Mr. Johnston expressed great
pleasure in meeting so many of the old settlers of Johnson county and referred in complimentary terms to
the vigor and permanence of the Old Settlers’ Association, which has done much to draw from the memories of the pioneers the valuable history of pioneer 4

Although the exact spot is not positively known, this brings us to the
Mynster spring, just at the north limit of the city, where the great bluff
comes down to within a few rods of the river, and must have been a favorite
meeting place for the tribes, as shown by a burying ground back on one of
the bluffs, where are buried hundreds of all ages and both sexes, but covered
so lightly that the boys used to dig them up. This is the first we hear of
Council Bluffs and brings us on to the soil of Pottawattamie county, and,
although no permanent settlement was made for many years, it was a recognized point and designated on the early maps ‘of the country and visited
by trappers and traders that exploited this region with St. Louis as their
base of operation.

I am aware that other points claim the distinction of being the original
Council Bluffs, notably Fort Calhoun, about fifteen miles above Omaha, and
another at Traders Point, six or seven miles south of the city of Council
Bluffs, but as there are no bluffs at either of these places, the name would
not be appropriate. ...

The old log cabins at the fair ground today are scenes of the
thirty-seventh annual reunion of the old settlers of Johnson county.
Pioneers from all over the county are in attendance and hundreds
are here from the surrounding country. Many former Johnson
county settlers are here from neighboring counties, including a
goodly delegation of old residents from Cedar Rapids.

The weather all day has been perfect, which fact with excellent
roads accounts for the unusually large attendance. The farmers
began to arrive early this morning and by 10 o’clock a large crowd
had assembled at the fair grounds. This is one of the most pleasant
gatherings of the year, and the pioneers are certainly enjoying themselves.

Two years ago the pioneers braved the dust and undismayed by
the awful drought that then prevailed gathered in goodly numbers
at their annual festival. L,ast year they met under exactly opposite
weather conditions.

There was no dust in the roads, but the mud was plentiful. The
parched fields had been supplanted by luxuriant vegetation after
continued heavy rains, winds had damaged heavy crops, but there
was a promise of plenty and good times to come. Today the weather
is the ...

Introduction


In writing up this little History of our Bacon l^\iniily and in looking
.ivcr the different rec( rds, we find there are a great many Bacon familie;-.
in the United States, who do not claim any relationship. In ^^0 there
were fort\- Bacon families living in Chicago and only one of them be-
l(mged to our ])ranch and that was Francis "M. Bacon and his family. The
supposition has been that we are all descendants of Lord Bacon but thai
is a mistake as L(.rd Bacon never had any children. In 1640, there was
a man 1)\' the name of Michael Bacon who immigrated from England to
America with his three sons and settled in some one of the New ...

Record in Intercollegiate Debate and O ratory
The material for the following interesting story of the record of
Cornell College in intercollegiate debate and oratory has been care­
fully collected by Professor John Barnes, Director of the School of
Oratory. As Cornell was one of the first colleges to be organized
in the State, so she has been in the van in organizing departm ents
and in inaugurating activities which characterize an energetic college
life. She was probably the first to organize courses designed primarily
for teachers, was the first college west of the Mississippi to organize
a May music festival; was among the first to offer work in music, art,
and public speaking; was a ch arter member of the Iowa Intercollegiate
Oratorial Association in 1874; and was in the lead in inaugurating
intercollegiate debate.
Cornell’s interest and skill in debate may be attributed partly to
the fact that the first literary society organized in 1853 or ’54 was
largely a debating society, and th at the literary societies have main­
tained their vigor from the first as the pre-eminent student organiza­
tions. The success in organized intercollegiate debate, dating from
1897, has been largely due to a system of contest debating ...
