Many people remember the Plain faced Earnest quakerism Little woman who was Here a year or so ago asking Aid for the Homo for fallen women which she established at Des Moines and which is known As the Benedict Home where Many unfortunates have found a Welcome and from which they have gone Forth again into the work purified and reformed through the kindly services of the Noble woman. The legislature recognized the importance of the Home by granting it an appropriation but now we learn that the other women who heretofore had Only a Zomina connection with the Home have decided that. Mrs. Benedict is running it to suit them and the result is the Good old woman will go Back to Decorah Anc again establish another Asylum for the unfortunates which Wili be con trolled by the female Regency of Iowa. A Des Moises correspondent of the Council Bluffs Globe refer i to this matter As follows there is another split in the Republican party. The women Are at it this time. For several years mrs. Benedict has been Labouring to establish a Home for Unfer innate. Etc. Women and the old lady some two or three years ago managed to Siart the Benedict Home in this City and two years ago also Man i aged to secure a few thousand dollars of an appropriation from the Genera Assembly. Mrs. Benedict had worked hard for years to secure this and the institution is now understood to be a successful one. Another appropriation was secured from the last general Assembly and the usual result follows mrs. S. Ellen Foster and her set have cow managed to secure control of the Home and have virtually turned mrs. Benedict out in the cold. The old lady announces that she will Start out to found another Home at her own Home in Decorah and j. Ellen follows in a newspaper card giving her reasons Why the old lady was ousted out of the Home built cd endowed almost entirely through her own personal labors. J.

Uetc., but having made a miserable failure of that attempt she has become More tyrannical and absolute Over what she apparently regards As her own personal properly and perquisite the state of Iowa.

Garrett s description of Tho Early settlement of Union township a which furnish a four territorial judges three members of the Wisconsin territorial Kcf Latare and Tho first sheriff of this county. Of. 6. Union township. In 1836, and a few years later in what s now Union and Augusta townships at that Date there were no townships there were but two counties West of the Riverin the Skunk River or. George Chandler now resides Jas. Laswell had a claim and Thos. Wyatt had one near there and West afterwards Martin Brown lived and near Browne a Low Rasen Riggs of Baltimore owned some land. I was agent for or. Riggs Many years. Or. John Patterson purchased the and. West of that was Cooper Harris the next place was Richard lands our first mail contractor. He was a brother in Law of or.

North of lands on what a the Worthington place James Morgan lived. He was a very Early settler he came in 1835, and a think was a brother of Joseph who lived in the Cove on the River. In crossing on the ferryboat to Shoko non or coming to our town from there he was struck Over the head with a club out a Iron poker and died from the effects of the blow. I think a Roan named Jackson bit him but am certain that was his name. Joel Hargrove had a claim near Morgan s. West of lands was Jeremiah Harris and near him his brother Zacheri amp a. He was a Blacksmith i think and soon after removed to Missouri. Then West was Henry walkers. He was one of the judges of the county and a very worthy Man and came Here in 1833 or 1834. Ebenezer Riddle purchased his place and lived there for Many years. It now belongs to or. Moneka or. Hilleary and others. Then West was a ferry which was after wards called Haines ferry. Jacob and John Haines lived there one or both moved to Oregon. Then West resided Laban Garrison and or. Osborn and North of walkers is Rock Springs and i Well remember that one Beautiful sunday in june 1886, my Mother and some others of the family went Down what is now the fort Madison Road by judge walkers to Rock Springs to attend Church and took me along. 1 was then just 13 3�?Tears old. There were Trees Grewing around the sprint that made Shade. The settlers bad provided rough Puncheon benches Eiso a Rouru Board pulpit in the Forenoon Rev. David r. Chance a Baptist or Campbel Lite.

James and Jackson Hilleary Stilt reside there honoured and respected citizens. Where the Spring is and surrounding it the citizens purchased five acres for Church and school purposes and for a burial ground. A few years later or. Edwin James purchased a Tarm near the Spring now i think owned by or. Hasenclever and resided there Many years and it was said his House was a stopping place for persons travelling from Missouri to Canada to better their condition. The doctor and his wife Are buried in the grave Yard surrounding the Spring and grandma Hilleary was buried there Jacob shuck lived on what was afterwards known As the Burton place now owned i think by Alexander Hilleary and West of that Richard Noble owned and sold to John h. Murphy the father of the Murphy Brothers w. P. And b. F. Murphy. Wrest of or. Murphy lived a tall Man named John Simpson and i think a Man named Mathias Grimes lived near. North and West of the Spring Robert Avery lived who came with his family in 1836, and his son Henry resides there yet. Or. Avert was our first county Surveyor and an honoured fellow citizen Hon. J. Wilson Williams waa his Deputy and they did a great Deal of work in perfecting titles according to claim lines. Or.

And purchased one a mile North of Augusta but sold it to a or. Ainsworth and moved West. He attended oar Semi Centennial in 1883. It. Comstock resided on the farm he purchased for Many years and sold it to his son in Law or. E. H. Calkins. I remember Well of hearing Rev. Or. Comstock preach in old Zion the first time be was Here.

Hughe., one of our judges and near him on what is now the Vandyke farm lived John Moore a brother of our old citizen Henry Moore. He owned a Mill with a tread wheel and used oxen. I think Hughes sold to James q. Walker and Moore to Cartright and Vandyke and moved farther West. Or. Cartright the father of h. W. Cartright and or. Vandyke most have moved there in 1839 or 1840. There also lived near them the Rev Daniel g. Cartright. The father of William a. Of Mediapolis. Near there also lived the Elliotts.

Joseph and William sons of judge William Morgan and Lindsey Delashmutt and on what is now the Conrad Lee place judge William Morgan lived and near by David Tothero. They were the first settlers in the township and came in the fall of 1832, built Cabins and broke of some Prairie Bat the soldiers came Down from Rock Island it. Armstrong and and drove them off. I have been told they wintered on big Island the Winter of 1832-33. And came Over and planted Corn in the Spring. In 1858 we organized the Hawkeye Pioneer Assia tion and i was elected Secretary. Judge William Morgan became a member and wrote Bis name in the signature Book and asked me to write Down the Date of his coming As june 1, 1838. He was the oldest settler who signed the Constitution. The judge belonged to the Campbel Lite or Christian Church and one sunday in the Spring of 1836 i was at his Rev. Or. Hodgens preached. The judge always took a warm interest in me up to the Day of his death. He was indeed a Pioneer in the West having settled in Illinois at a very Early Day was one of the judges in l838-r34 and 35. He was a highly esteemed and worthy citizen had a very Large family three or for sons and six or seven daughters All married and living in what is now Des Moines county. I knew them All Well. West of judge morgans lived another old gentleman from Virginia William Delashmutt. He also like judge Morgan was surrounded by Bis sons and married daughters and had a Large family. After his death his son in Law David love lived on. The Home place and sold it. I believe that is the part where the old. House was to or. Gugeler who lives there now and purchased the col. Arthur Inghram farm in Flint River township. Or. We. Delashmutt had three Quarter sections if a Section of land and i think he gave it to his sons and daughters. There also lived near judge morgans some of his wife a relatives. She was a Cousin of governor Joseph Vance of Ohio and some of the Vances lived near there. The oldest settlers now living in Union township Are James and Jackson Hilleary 1833, Conrad Lee Conrad Pfeiff Sibert Magel mrs. Hernig 1884 or 1835 John shuck son of Jacob the Cameron boys Jacob Leffier and Henry Avery. Also 1 remember the names of other old settlers Henry Parrish the caste Iines or. Beanblossom Rev. John Batchel Der the first episcopal minister in Iowa Bishop Kemper had held services previous but he was the first Clergyman called to Iowa. There Are others. I have no doubt that i cannot recall to mind. Most of those who first settled in what is now Union township have moved further West but some have been Laid away in their Graves and i can remember where Many moved to and who died and where buried. Quite a number Are at rest around Rock Springs some in Spring Creek cemetery and some in Aspen Grove and it is a singular fact that in a county that was one half of the territory West of the River fifty no i is East and West and one Hundred forty Miles North and South All four of the judges in 1833, �?T34, �?T35 and 38. And one member of the Council and three members of the House of representatives of the Wisconsin legislature of 1838 and 1887, and the first and second sheriff of the county. Should have been residents of what a now Union township and the first land slowed in the territory was in that township but such is the fact. William Garbett. The Busy Bee. Annual meeting of the Des Moines county Bee keepers convention. Yesterday Forenoon quite a number of persons engaged in Bee culture met at the circuit room and a very interesting consideration of the subject followed. The first subject discussed was a How to Winter Caspar Brader stated that he wintered eighty five stands in his cellar losing Only three of their dumber. His place was provided with a double outside door a six Inch tile into the open air for ventilation arranged with a trap to be closed As the temperature demanded.

Various other matters were discussed and the members Felt that they had received much Benefit from this inter change of experience and ideas. Or. Mckinney exhibited a Patent Stencil which shows the condition of a stand a to numerical strength the amount of Honey therein and if the bees Are diseased. It is a very ingenious arrangement and seems to meet along Felt want by Bee keepers. Or.
