PREFACE.

LI

The History of Cass County has been completed after more than a year of unremitting effort on the part of the publishers and the editor and his staff. That the work will bear the critical inspection of the many persons into whose hands it will come, and that it measures up to the highest standards of modern book-making, the Publishers confidently believe. Also, through the diligent co-operation of Mr. Glover, the editor, the history has become a record of enduring value and dignity.

It is not the purpose of the Publishers to delay the readers with a long preface. It is sufficient to acknowledge their indebtedness to many who have contributed of personal knowledge, of time and patience in their cordial endeavors to preserve and extend the fund of liistorical knowledge concerning Cass County. It would be impossible to mention the names of all who have thus assisted in making this work. Yet we cannot omit mention of the assistance rendered by the county officials, especially County Clerk Rinehart, Judge Des Voignes, Register of Deeds Jones, County Treasurer Gard, County Commissioner of Schools Hale. Naturally the newspapers of the county have been drawn upon, and Mr. Allison of the National Democrat, Mr. Berkey of the Vigilant, Mr. Moon of the Herald, have never failed to supply us with exact information or further our quest in some helpful way. These and many others have helped to compile a trustworthy history of Cass County.

THE PUBLISHERS.
