from the same volume.
Mr. .Cuhl was born at Schleswig-llols-tln,
formerly ien mark now Prussia, on
the 5th of Sept., MX llC parents were
named Peter and Katrina Jaw son Cuhl.
Young Teter was sent to school in bis
native place until bis tenth year, w'.cn
he was apprenticed to learn the. trade of
a nail maker. He completed bis (ra le at
the age of eighteen and worked at it in
various c ities in Oerniany until lip w as
twenty-two years ot age, w beu lie decided
to emigrate to Amerka- He landed
at New Orleans In Is55. From
this point began a series of wanderings
and fluttering. eierienced by few you lg
men. Sick with chills and fever Ur six
years, he worked whenever be was able,
at larniiiig,' steamboating ami anything
be could get to do,'belng," says the biog
raphy, ''frequently reduced to the mo.t
desperate condition ; friendless, home
less and moneyless, be wa; sometimes
obliged to lug his food." In the year
1SC1, Mr. Cuhl settled in Cairo, and from
this period, wc continue his history in
the words of the biography.
For two years he kept a small stand in
the public mark t, aud dealt in produce
in a small way ; but great results often
flow from small beginnings, and. so it
proved in this case. 11c saV2d a little
money from bis buxtering trade w bicti
he invested in flour and was soon at the
bead ot A commission house. He ob
tained Hour on commission and was
trusted by tho shippers until he made
sale and collection. In this way be man
aged to make a fair start in the flour busi
ness, to which he has since mainly de
voted his attention, and which has grown
steadily until it is at pres
ent one of the mot success
ful and flourishing establishments of the
kind in tin; west, employing a large cap
ital and annual sales .ot half a million
dollars, and Peter Cuhl has grown in the
short space of ten years from an obsoure
buxterin the public market to a wealthy
and distinguished merchant, with a busi
ness capacity and a character for intelli
gence and Integrity second to no man in
the west. Surely here is an example
from which poor but aspiring young
men may well take courage.
Mr. Cuhl was brought up in the Luth
eran faith, to which he adheres, being a
member of that organization. Ho is,
however, a firm believer in (Jod, and
thinks that the life of Jesus Christ as set
forth in the New Testament Is the best
pattern to follow. His own early trou
bles and privations have softened bis
heart towards others similarly circum
stanced, and bis charities are bestowed
with a generous hand. He has taken but
little stock in politics but gives bis sup
port to the Republican party.
In 10(3, he, married Miss Annie Stech
habn, a native of Germany, w hose In
dustry and frugality during the early
years of their married life materially
aided in laying the foundation of the
competence with which their later ypars
are blessed. Thej' have no children.
Minerva Hurley, an oft offended and

that she. thought it was her duty as a
good and lawful citizen to have the pro
fessor arrested and fined tor bU mis
conduct, that lie might, In the hereafter,
carry himself In a manner more becom
ing a gentleman. The warrant was
made out ami placed in the hands ol an
otlicerjwlio soon brought the breaker of
peace and dignity before his honor. He
tried hard to prove that Minerva
had not been abused as she had stated,
but that she was mad because be had
allowed the image of another charmer to
become imprinted on his heart, and that
she merely wanted vengenauce. She
got it to the amount of ten dollars and
