In journeying through life we occasionally run across some young man who in business circles has fairly distanced competition, endowed with greater advantages perhaps, but still lacking some qualification possessed by himself. This qualification may be embraced in a single word ambition. The young man whose name heads this sketch is endowed with ambition, coupled with industry, integrity, and holiness sagacity.

Locating at Canyon City in 1889, for a period of two years he followed watch making, which he had leaned in the old country. He then began merchandising in a small way, and by studying the wants of the people and by fair and liberal treatment of his customers has from time to time been compelled to add to his stock, until today he probably carries the largest in the county. The illustration of his store accompanying this article hardly does justice to it as he carries his general stock in two warehouses, one 20×40 and the other 35×30, besides using a large fireproof cellar.
