    Excerpt from Thirty-Third Annual Reunion of the Old Settlers: August 17, 1899 Old Settlers and Pioneers, and the Sons and Daughters, and the Grandsons and Granddaughters of the Old Settlers and Pioneers of Johnson County: - This day (old settlers' day) is the one day in the year set apart for the reunion of the pioneer settlers of Johnson county. It is distinctively their day. And, since I am addressing those settlers of our land who still survive the toils and labors of half a century or more, I may with propriety say that this day is your day - a day when it is yours to be seen and heard, when you may show the younger generation of what stuff the pioneer was made and recount the trials and deeds of frontier life. To be called upon to address Iowa pioneers is always an honor. It is more than this - it is a rare privilege. It is a privilege which we of the present generation always welcome. For, to stand face to face with pioneers is to inspire feelings of reverence and foster a wholesome respect for our ancestors. To study the lives and characters of the pioneers of Iowa is to strengthen our confidence in the future of this commonwealth. For the Iowa of today and tomorrow is largely determined by those who first settled upon these hills and prairies. "It is with a reverence such as is stirred by the sight of the head-waters of some mighty river" that we turn to the consideration of the character of the pioneers of Iowa. There is one principle in the life and character of the Iowa pioneer that has always commanded my admiration. I would commend it to the present generation and to the generations yet unborn. I refer to the principle of economy - that fundamental in all industrial progress. The old settler practiced economy; he saved wealth; he created capital. Thus he made possible the industry of today. For without saving there can be no capital, and without capital there can be no industry. The old settler was a "saver of wealth." He was a capitalist, since he possessed the capitalistic instinct to save. At times, however, his economy verged on parsimony.
