In August, 1880, ho cunio to Toxan to
accept Hie position of Principal of Blum
Instituto, Blum, Toxas. Ho discharged
the duties as head of this instituto for
two years willi entire satisfaction, when
lin gave up teaching lo begin tho study
. if law. In 1888 ho carno to Waco, and
entered tho ollices of tho well-known

close application ho was enabled to stand

cuit Courts. Waco could thou, as well
as now, boast of ono of tho strongest
bars in tho Slate, but ho located hero for
the activo practico, ll is evident that
no mistake was made, for he soon hogan
to enjoy a good practico, which has
steadily increased in volume and import
ance. While this bar has moro than ono
hundred practicing attorneys, ho is
justly regarded as ono among its very
hrigh(cst young lawyers. He has con
lined himself principally to tho civil
practice, and has conducted with success
several causes of much moro than ordi
nary importance. His career may bo re
garded as a comparatively quiet ono, as
lu has never entered tho political arena
on his own account. His attention has
been divided between his oflicoand court
room practice. As a counsellor ho is
sato ami conservative, and in giving ad
vice to his clients he is honest, consci
entious and sincere. His conduct is
mai ked hy a st rict integrity, and his
hearing in both professional and private
life is that of a cultured Christian gentle
man. At the ago of eighteen years ho
joined tho Missionary Baptist church of
which ho is still a member. Tho inllu
cnee of a devoted Christian mother has
been potent in shaping his conduct and
inakim; his career one of stainless honor.
His future is bright with promise.
