W. Phillips will round out 50 years o! service as a practicing physician on March 5 and relatives and friends will join in celebrating that event Friday. Dr. and Mrs. A. B. Phillips will keep open house from 2 until 5 o'clock at their home on Soiith Fourth street in his honor and many friends and acquaintances have-planned to call to pay their respects at this time. Dr. Phillips was graduated from the University of Iowa on March 2, 1S87, and received his license to practice on March 5. In those days an examination was given by the instructors and then a public examination followed. Dr. Phillips first hung out his shingle in Fertile where he was associated ,, with Dr. J. R. Jones, now deceased. After several years at Fertile Dr. Phillips moved to Hanlontown and he practiced there until 1910 when he came to" Clear Lake where he has since remained. He is now ar.weiiled ivith his brother. Dr. A, B. Phillips, both men having offices in the same building. Used Ox Teams. Dr. Phillips was born in 1859 at Allegheny in western New York. He came with his parents via the DR. N. W. PHILLIPS Great Lakes to Ripon, Wis., where the family remained a year preparing for the trip to Iowa. Several families came west in a group using two ox-teams and two horse-teams for the journey which took about three weeks. After looking about a bit, the Phillips family settled in Lincoln township, Cerro Gordo county. A brother, E. H. Phillips, still resides on the old homestead. In speaking of his college days, Dr. Phillips told of the chai"°s from that day to this. Terms at ·--i university were short, in those days and it was necessary for each student doctor to have a preceptor. This office was filled for the young medic by Dr. J. B. Charlton, well-known Clear Lake physician in the early days. Dr. Phillips studied for some time in Dr. Chai'lton's office and then in 1881, wen', lo the university for a course of lectures. Took 3 Years. At t h a t ' t i m e a medical course consisted qt .two years' Work with 20 weeks constituting a year. But Dr.-Phillips took a special course which required three r years, 1885, 1886 and 1887. A large class finished in 1887 as it was the first year lhat the medical practice act was in effect and all persons practicing medicine were compelled to take at least one year of college preparation. Dr. Phillips says that he wanted to be a doctor and would always have regretted it if he had not realized his ambition. But his entrance into that field was so widely at .variance from the traditions of his family that had it not been for the sympathetic encouragement of Dr. Chai-lton he might not have accomplished his design. In the early days of his career Clear Lake Briefs Fri. Bush's glazed do-nuts 20c. Mr. and Mrs. Marius Orcdson and family have moved from the farm six miles north of Clear Lake where they had been living to a farm near'Forest City.

Mr. and Mrs. Foss drove down last Saturday and stayed until Sunday afternoon when Mrs. Leach accompanied them home. Dr. A. J. Cole and S. C. Schumacher went to Britt Thursday afternoon to attend the funeral of Henry Schaper, an old friend. Darwin Nelson, 7, son of Mr. and Mrs. Theodore Nelson, suffered a broken leg when he fell out of a tree Tuesday. The fracture was reduced and he is resting as easily as could be expected at the home six miles southwest of Clear Lake. Dr. Phillips drove a two-wheeled cart in making his calls upon patients or, at times, rode horseback. The cart had a slat arrangement with open ends for his feet and medicine cases, no backrest on the seat and very few springs anywhere so that after traveling 30 or 40 miles in it one felt that he had done a day's work. Roads were none too good and a trip to Forest City or Leland consumed much time and was very tiresome. Wed Lake Teacher. In 1891 Dr. Phillips married Miss Amy Drake, a teacher in the Clear Lake public schools. She completed her term with the school and then the young couple made their home at Fertile when the doctor owned a drugstore and his wife, after a years study at the university, was the pharmacist.
