When he elosed out two years ago he was the oldest merchant in Hampton in point ol continuous business and his place was thought to be one o£ the last in Iowa to m a n u f a c t u r e and sell cigars exclusively.

There were no modern conveniences and customers coming after dark carried lanterns. All churches and business places except the Harriman block on Federal street and the buildings on First street occupied by the Boehmler Shoe store and the ' Lockwood Beed hardware store, were built after their arrival. When ihe Citizens' National bank was organized in 1905 he became a director. He was a charter member of the I. O. O.
