His regiment was assigned to guard duty at Rock Island barracks, Where a large number of confederate prisoners were kept. In 1901 he came to Swea City and purchased the livery barn of William Ferguson, and conducted the business until his retirement in 1912. Mrs. Frakes passed away about a year ago. And, like every good soldier, he enjoys a good argument or a discussion of current affairs.

He was out to see the country. Well, as sometimes happens on expeditions of that kind, this young man, then 23, found that he and the coin of the realm were getting to be strangers, so he looked around for a Job, and found It on a fruit ranch, packing fruit. The fruit pickers were lodged in a bunk house, and one day when they returned they found the bunk house in ashes, destroyed by a fire. For 20 anxious minutes a somewhat homesick Kossuth young man lamented the passing of all the luggage he had in the world. Then the rancher disclosed that he had removed the luggage before the fire destroyed the entire building— and the Kossuth lad turned homeward bound. But today D. D. Paxson shows no outward appearances of worry. His Is a cheerful disposition, ever ready to smile whether on the street, In the postofflce, or In the office of the Kossuth Mutual Fire Insurance Co., a Kossuth county organization, where he is secretary.
