Fayette Civil War Vet Is Record Weatherman R. Z. LATIMER R. Z. Latimer, Distinguished as "Grand Old Man," Is Pioneer Settler. FAYETTE, Feb. 24.--If the Fayette community has a logical heir to the title, "Grand bid Man," there is little doubt o£ its proper bestowal on R. Z. Latimer, active and cheerful Civil war veter. To be a hale and hearty veteran of the Civil war, to have kept the government weather records for a longer continuous period than any other man at any time in Iowa and to have been engaged in one line of business in the same community for more than half a century are rare distinctions. Add to these the possession of a perfectly sound memory of this unusual panorama-consider the fact that this doughty pioneer returned from his Civil war service with apparently undermined health--and there is the bare outline of a remarkable career. Mr. Latimer was born in Clarion county, Pa., 'Nov. 29, 1845, Coming .to Iowa with his parents from Illinois when 10 years of age. The first building on the Upper Iowa university campus.- College hall, was then under construction and his father teamed for the college during the completion of the building. Mr. Latimer has seen every building on the Upper Iowa campus completed. In 1864, at the age of 19, Latimer enlisted in the twelfth Iowa infantry. He joined the regiment at Memphis, Tenn., and saw hard service in some of the late engagements of the war, serving under Genera] Smith, brigade commander. The brigade saw severe action in several battles, among- them a two clay fight at Nashville, in which three separate Confederate brigades were hurled in vain against a wooded position held by the Smith command and a desperate engagement at Harrisburg, Miss. In 1888 he took up the task of local weather observation. This hfc continued without a break until this winter, when illness and a proiected trip to Geor.eia induced him to relinquish the task.
