It was natural, therefore, that the earliest explorers should learn first about the Iowa country bordering the Missis-, sippi and Missouri rivers. But the broad prairies of the interior, which could not be reached by boat remained to be discovered by troops of -mounted soldiers marching across' country between military posts. Probably no man saw and described more of Iowa land before it was settled than Stephen W. Kearny. On three long expeditions, in 1820, 1824-26, and 1835, he carefully observed the surface of the country, .the kinds of plant and animal life, and the different tribes of Indians. Nothing escaped his watchful eyes. Attached to the first expedition without military duties, he bad a good opportunity to notice the country. It was on July 2, 1820, that 21 .soldiers with an Indian guide and this squaw and papoose set out jfrom Council Bluff, Neb., to discov- i er a direct route between that post 'and Camp Coldwater at the mouth of the Minnesota river. Having crossed the Missouri, the party marched up the valley of the Boyer river, then crossed the divide to the headwaters of the Soldier river where many elk were seen, and thence .to the Little Sioux. Game was plentiful all the way. Wolves, foxes, and other fur-bearing animals were observed. A few miles southwest of where the town of Peterson is now located, Captain Kearny shot a large buffalo. That terian church Wednesday evening. The guests Included the teachers in the public schools and all the young people affiliated with the congregation, forming a company of approximately 75. The dinner, which was prepared by the mothers of the sponsors, was served by young matrons of the allied congregations. Edgar Davis was in charge of the program as toastmaster and responses were made by Pauline Stout, Harold Roberts, Viola Miller, Paul Eggers. Janet Nason also sang a solo. <*> * * Presents Pupils In Recital Sat. Margaret Woods, soprano, presented a group of her pupils in a voice recital at her home in State Center Saturday. The guests, mostly parents and friends of the children, were served with refreshments at the close of the afternoon.

W. Ferguson, southeast of State . Center, Friday afternoon with. 10 members answering roll call. After a reading by Mrs. Emery E. Nason the rest of the time was spent socially. A refreshing lunch was served at the close of the day. . FOS.T , CAMP I CITY ....EXPEDITION 01 ..—.EXPtDlTlOM Of 1AX.4-X* --•^.EXPEDITION Of Map adapted from "The Palimpsest" evening the whole company feasted on bison steak, which Kearny liked better than "our common beef." Three days later they saw a herd of about 5,000 buffaloes, which thy did not molest. Kearny was amazed at the extent of open prairie with scarcely a trace of timber. One day they traveled 59 miles wittiout finding any wood. The soil was generally good but water was scarce, which convinced the captain that northwest Iowa could never support "more than a thinly scattered population," Somewhere in the neighborhood of the present site of Emmetsburg, the expedition crossed the west fork of the Des Moines river. Eastward thru swamps and over rolling prairies they wandered in search of a branch of the Minnesota river. Great swarms of mosquitoes annoyed them almost beyond endurance. About : where North wood" is" now located' they crossed the northern border of Iowa, thence they marched to the Mississippi at Lake Pepin. and fol- lowed the river to their destination where they arrived on July 25. After three days of rest, the party started down the. Mississippi in a big rowboat, boffnd for St. Louis. On the way, several Indian villages in Iowa, DubuqueV lead mines, and the ruins of old Fort Madison attracted Kearny's attention. In the course of about six weeks, be traveled over 400 miles across the prairies of northwestern Iowa and along the entire length of the eastern boundary. Four years later he voyaged up the Missouri with General Atkinson's expedition and returned by the same route in 1826, thus exploring most of the western border. Fifteen years after his march from Council Bluffs to Camp Coldwater, Kearny led three companies of dragoons (mounted soldiers) on a 1,100 mile exploration of the interior of Iowa. On June 7 they started up-the Des Moines river valley. By 4be time-they-reached the locality of Oskaioosa the prairie was red with ripe strawberries. Turkeys, grouse, ducks, and prairie chickens were plentiful, and the streams were full of pickerel, trout and catfish.'Near the headwaters of the Skunk river they killed a few buffalo. After a month of hard riding, Kearny's troopers reached the Mississippi near Lake Pepin. There they rested for two weeks, held a council with some Sioux Indians, and started homeward across what is now southern Minnesota. At the Blue Earth river they turned south and followed the course of the Des Moines back to their post. They arrived on Aug. 19, all well and in good spirits. Activity Hints 1.
