A man of sterling worth and a well-known citizen of Malheur, was born in Minnesota in 1860, and with his parents moved to this state in 1864, settling near Walla Walla, Wash. He received his education in the schools of Milton, Or. and then followed farming in that section until 1885. Moving to Morrow County, near Heppner, he followed the sane avocation until 1890. He then moved to Malheur County, and in 1892 bought out the drug store of A. W. Rime of Vale, and has successfully conducted it since. He carries a complete line of drugs and sundries, schoolbooks, stationary and cigars, and is also engaged in the stock business in connection with John F. Weaver. In November 1892, he was appointed county treasurer to fill out an unexpired term, and has gained the confidence of his fellow citizens to such an extent as to cause his election in 1894 and again in 1896.
