Why?
To the Editor of the Globe: . '
Six fires last night was the report in
Saturday morning's paper. Four fires
last night was the report in last Monday's I
issue, "all of them incendiary." • Thirty
nine fires in the month of January, "most
of them incendiary." During the last
ninety days the insurance companies have
poured money into St. Paul as though it
was so much water. The amoont almost
reaches the amount of the annual premium
which will be collected in this city during
the year 1854. Why should not the com
panies ask an increase of rate adequate
to the losses sustained. Even though
they are of incendiary origin no effort
seems to have been made to arrest
the nefarious work of ' the
incendiary, and every one folds his hands
and says, "fully insured." The actual
losses to the companies doing business in
the state of Minnesota last year, 1883,
after paying all expenses for doing their
business, was about $575,000 over the
amount received in premiums. Why? No
matter if losses are inoendiary we are
"fully insured." The city of St. Paul
with the experience of the last ninety days
cannot say we are better off , than our
neighbors. Why ? Incendiarism seems to
run rampant in our midst with no one to
"molest or make him afraid." Why? Several
of the largest offices in view of the exossive
losses in this city are already demanding
that the rate of premium in this oity be
advanoed. Each and every property holder
in this city is interested in this matter,
and must sooner or later ask himself why
the just claims of these companies who
lead the van for an increase in rates should
not be granted.
The Hazing Court Martial.

and Lieut.Portef was substituted for Lieut.

' charged are Maxty, HcLon and Bush, all

Transactions Not Numerous, but Prices
Firmly Maintained—A Good Inquiry for
Property for Spring Occupancy—Build
ing Operations.
While the real estate market during: the
past week has not ■ been dull in the com
mon acceptation of the term, agents have
not been overcrowded with business and
have been able to sit down for a few
moments with present and prospeotive
purchasers and discuss the prospects of
this, that and the other section of the city
for the near future. Their conversations,
had when business was not rushinsr
have had a tendency 'to confirm rather
than to weaken the faith of all in the
future growth of the oity. Indeed, it hie
freqnently been found that when a par
ticular parcel of ground was under con
sideration, its advantages appeared
so numerous that an additional
cipher or two has been added to
the egking price, and in some instances
the advance has been granted within a
very few hours.
A dull season in the real - estate trade
generally results in good, for it enables
all concerned to oonfer together, and the
result is a general equalization of values.
Some properties that have been marked
away up into the clouds are brought down
within the reaoh of mortals, while other
parcels that were previously esteemed as
of no account are found to be most elig
ible sites for business or mercantile
structures. .. The average of this evening
up process in St. Paul has ' tendod rather
«o the raising than to the lowering of
prioeß, and as the season for aotive build
ing operations is yet a oonple of months
distant, prospeotive purchasers are hold
ing off, though in a large number of in
stances they are taking options for aaoh
lets as they think they might require tm
the near future.
The aggregate sales of the week amount
to but $151,776, far less than the average,
but not inoonßiderable when we take into
I account the season of the year. Most of
the sales have been small in amount, and
it is the intention of the purchasers to im
prove their acquisitions as early as possi
ble in the spring. There has been but
little speculative trading, except in lots
on the west side, where property is ex
pected te have a boom as Boon as the new
railroads projected shall eater the city in
1 the summer ensuing.
Architeoto are kept busy nowadays
drawing plans for new buildings to be
erected early in the season. Few of these
plans are as yet completed save those that
have been haretofore mention ed in these
columns. Suffice it to say, however, that
unless unfortuitous oiroumstances should
arise, the year 1884 will witness the most
substantial growth in the history of St.
Paul. Oar solid men are preparing to in
vest liberally as noon as the building sea
son opens, and there will be work enough
for all to do.
The firm of Fairchild & Davidson ought
to be satisfied with the success they have
had in the year just closed. . Their sales
have perhaps been as large as any house
in St. Paul, and a very pleasant feature of
their business is in the fact that they have
not had a single difficulty either with
buyer or seller. Both members of the
firm are thoroughly posted as to values of
St. Paul property, and their acquaintance
with those who wish to buy or sell is as
extensive as that of any party in the busi
ness. Parties having property to sell
cannot do better than to list it solely with
these gentlemen. The location of their
office is so well known by the citizens of
our oity that it is hardly necessary to give
it, but for the benefit of non-residents we
give the No. 534 Jaokson street.

Only One More Unfortunate.
The bull pen of the polioe court yester
day morning looked like a funeral; The
procession oonsisted of only one poor
young wretch who was up on the henions
oharge of burglary. His name is Ed.
Wohley and in all mercy it seemed as
though the ends of justioe would have
been as well if not better subserved by
sending him up for thirty days. He was
charged with entering Tierney & Cos.
oommigsion house on Robert street, and
stealing a pipe and |150. Technically
this is burglary, but it seemed a pity to
hold the lad over to the grand jury, and
put the state to the expense and trouble
o J a trial when thirty days in the work
house would have perhaps been a more
wholesome lesson. But he was held to
the grand jury and committed.
The case against H. S. Cnppen, charged
with keeping a vicious dog, was dismissed.
In the afternoon John Hinderschild, a
farmer, was up on the charge of fast driv
ing on the bridge. The hearing will take
plaoe to-morrow.
THE SCHOOL TBAC.^EBS.
Their Monthly Meeting Yesterday—Ad
dross of Prof. Allen on Old and Xciv £d
ncat;on.
The monthly meeting of the teachers of
the public schools, was held in the as
sembly room of the High sohool yesterday
morning. The attendance was large, and
the proceedings were very interesting. The
exercises were opeced with a solo ren
dered in a beautiful manner by Miss Em
ma Haggerty, and an instrumental selec
tion by the High school orchestra, whioii
performed admirably.
THE OLD AND NEW EDUCATION.
The feature of the session was an interest
ing paper by Prof .Jerome Allen,of St.Cloud
State Normal school, on "The Old and the
New Eduoation. The salient points of the
paper, which was very interesting, may be
had from the following synopsis:
He said that the real element in the
new eduoation is as old as Sooratcs. Edu
cation is always the same, for it inoludes
whatever tends to develop the powers of a
human being. What is called the old edu
oation depresses and dwarfs the mind, soul
and body. The learning of tUe multipli
cation table, the rules of syntax, the facts
of geography are the only means by which
the development of the growing mind may
be directed. It is not of the slightest im
portance to know that four and four
make eight, that Paris is the oap
ital of France, or that the
subject of the finite verb must be in the
nominative oase, unless by meat's of this
knowledge, the mental powers are enlarg
ed. The way in whioh faota are learned,
constitutes the difference between what is
sailed the old and new education. Under
the old masters the more facts the pupil
learned, the better educated he was. His
mind was crammed with dates, and rules,
and exceptions, and theories, and laws,
and principles without number. The
doses were administered en maese, and the
one who oould reproduce from the store
house of an almost inexhaustible memory
the greatest number, was considered th»
best educated. In this way many of our
colleges taught the languages and the sci
ences. The tools were everything, the re
sults upon the mind, as far as any benefit
is concerned, were nothing.
But the light of an advancing civiliza
tion has almost banished the old time
sohool from the domain of civilization.
The brighter day of a rational education
has oome when the wholt of child nature is
taught to grow into a beautiful maturity.
It is the avowed puapose of all true teach
ers to drive into everlasting oblivion all
tracks of that eduoation born and nur
tured in the darkness of the middle ages.
Many instances of the effect of the old
teaching oould be given (The lecturer
narrated several very amusing incidents).
The principles of real education are im
portant and should be followed by all who
inatruot. A few of them are: The num
ber of faots a pupil learns is by no means
the measure of his suooess." "What a
ohild learns is not so important as how he
learns."
These principles were followed by
Socrates, enunciated by Bacon,
and applied by Pertatozzi and Froebel.
They are universally accepted by all true
teaohers.
The object of teaching is to arrive at
truth, asd in this constitutes its morality.
The old education oared not so much for
truth as for the repitition of long accepted
formulas. In oonsequence of the opposi
tion of the new eduoation to the custom,
it has been declared to be atheistic, or
ognostio. This oharge is utterly false.
"What is truth ?" is asked and anewertd by
our educational leaders. It is answered
thousands of times in all departments of
study. If a ohild oan be taught to searoh
for and sinoerely respect truth, he will
never go far astray. The new eduoation
teaches morality and religion free from
all sees and sectarianism, but not free
from the troth in which we live and move
and have our b«ing. Hon
or, uprightness, and a thoroughly
oorreot moral character are underneath all
true suooess in the business world. All the
virtue mu«t be taught in school rooms.
The remaining topics considered are the
following:
The results of the new education as
shown by its effects on the industries, arts
and sciences.
Its eiltiot on crime—on the productive
value of labor, and the making of books,
and the production of new inventions.
All the topics are fully disons*ed. The
closing portion of the address related to
the real nature and value and nature of
industrial eduoation.
It v. a> listened to with the closest at
tention.
Prof. Baker, of the Jefferson school,
then read a very interesting paper on the
"Use and Abuse of Text Books." Prof.
Baker alluded at some length to the dif
ferent methods of instruction, referring
ta the oral, topical, platonro and recita
tive methods. Any correct method of in
struotion should embrace all of these sys
tems, but to expand the mind of the pupil
and foster a loye for mental activity, all
instruction should be based on the text
book .-■■; tha text books furnished ideas for
the formation of sound and oorreot opin
ion; any method not based on the text
books would prove a failure. The
subjeot was treated iv a
very profound and exhaustive manner.
Superintendent Wright followed with a
brief history of the text book system in
the schools, outlining the different phases
it had undergone. As a valuable adjunct
to initiative instruction, the speaker
thought the text book was indiepensible.
Cares of Life.
As we come to them they are received, borne
with and passed over with no more than a
thought, if we are in the enjoyment of health,
but if suffering with piles or ekin diseases o*
any kind they magnify a hundred fold. A. R.
Wilkes, B. andE. Zimmerman, and E. Stierle,
the druggists, have Dr. Bosanko's Pile Hemedy,
an absolute cure. Bold at 50 cents.
New Taiecraph I<ine.
Stillwater and St. Paul is soon to have
still another new telegraph lint. On the
Ist inst. tha Chicago & Northwestern Tel
egraph oompany filed articles of incor

The proposed line, as mentioned in the
articles, is to run from Hudson, Wis., to
any oity, town or village in Wisoonsin, and
from St. Paul and Stillwater to Milwaukee
and Chicago via Eau Claire, Madison, etc
The names of the inoorporators are Alfred

B. Jilson and many others. The new com
pany mean business and will immediately
commence the work of constructing the
line. Contracts are already made for
wire and poles and the line will be put in
operation with the greatest possible dis
patch. It is understood that the company
will conneot at Chicago with the Mer

ARTICLE VIII.
A POINT ON THI BIVKt.
In 1846 St. Paul wa3 dignified as one of
the "points" on tha river, for the trade of
the place had then become of sufficient im
portance to induce steamboats to land and
di3oharge considerable freight here.
FIBST POBTOFFIOE AND FIBST POSTMASTBB.
Jackson, to whom we have repeatedly
alluded, was an important man in the
days in which he lived. He acted, by gen
eral consent of the people, as postmaster,
and, as ha 3 been hitherto described, all the
letters in his possession, were either thrown
down on the oounter or in a box, and each
one picked out those that belonged to him.
Finally, on the strength of a petition from
the settlers, an offioa was established by
the department at Washington, April 7,
1846, and Jackson received his commission
as postmaster the same date. The firs;
postoffice, as made by Jackson,
consisted of a rough box, with sixteen
pigeon hole?, and this original St. Paul
postoffice is now preserved among the
relics of the State Historical society.
Nothing so dearly shows the growth of
this oity as the comparative merits of the
postoffice of 1846 and the postomos build
ing of 1884! The original one is worth
about two dollars; the other oost the gov
ernment over $500,000! But Jehu! didn't
Jackson feel big when he received that
commission! He was already landlord,
merchant, saloon-keeper, Juetioe of tbe
Peace, politician, etc,, and now when
Uncle Sam put such a feather in His oap,
he felt as though his oup of happiness was
overflowing, although he "had sec?©
enough not to show his extra
berant feeling. He was a popular man
in his day, and did much to advance the
early growth of the oity. Jaokaon street
is named after him.
WILLIAM H. BAND ALL.
This gentleman was born in Massa
chusetts, in 1806; transacted business in
New York for several years; came to St
Paul in 1846, or thirty-eight years ago,
and died in 18C1, aged fifty-five years. He
succeeded Mr. Hartshorn in trade her .
and, having brought considerable money
with him, he invested largely in real estate,
which is now very valuable, worth not less
than $5,000,000. He was a public spirited
citizen, liberal, kind hearted, and had un
bounded faith in the growth of St. Paul.
PEBSONAIi CHABAOTEBISTIC9.
No one person we remember more dis
tinctly than the man whose name heads
this artiole. He was a.fine, gentlemanly,
courteous citizen, a hail fellow well met,
genial and genorous. At the time we firgt
saw him, in 1853, he was the "biggest man
in town." He had varieus vehicles
and drivers, any number of horses, dealt
largely in real'estate, and his note was
good almost any where for almost any
amount. Some of the property he then
owned in this city, is now worth untold
thousands, we might say millions. He
builded well, he planned well. But "man
proposes, God disposes;" and so, just. in
the midst of his prospective gains, the
great crash of 1857 came, and hie proper
ty, being mortgaged, went down and he
went with it. Mr. Randall was a man of
tine business qualities, honest in purpose
and manly in act. Were he alive to-day
and the possessor of the real estate in this
city which he once owned, he would be th
riohest man in St. Paul. Litigation fol
lowed his death, and two sons, who ought
to be well off, are paddling their own ca
noes and buffeting life's waves; and bo
goes the sew-Baw board of destiny—one ib
up while the other is down. Teeter-taun
ter! teeter-taunter! teeter-taunter!
In personal appearance Mr. Randal:
was of medium size,with a florid complex
ion, and always finely dressed. He in
variably carried a gold headed cane, and
his movements on the street were of an
energetic character. He had a soft, pleas
ant voice, and winning ways, and was al
ways polite. He was social among his
friend?, generous to their wants, and yet
wide-awake for business. We migh,t say,
he was the advance courier of gentleman
ly culture and true civilzation.
A XINDLY.-HEABTED MAN.
On his death the old Pioneer said: "Wo
have never known a more kindly-hearted
man. There are many who owe their start,
and business in life to his generosity.
: Very many others, strangers, stricken by
siokness in a strange land, who owe life it
self to his nursing; and in our cemeteries
?oores of mounds mark the graves of tho»;j
who, having no relatives to minister to
them in their fatal illness, weie soothed
and comforted by the tender hnnd
and open purse and sympathizing
voioe of that kind old man, with whom
suffering was always a bond of friend
ship."
Many old settlers now living, forgetting
his faults, if hi had any, kindly remember
"Pap Randall," as he was familiarly called
by those who knew him, moro as a father
than a friend, and many more who knew
him only casually, remember him as the
ideal [gentleman and the oourteoua citi
zen.
THE BAND ALL BOT3.
The oldest son of Mr. Randall,
Wm. H., was an artist, and oame
to St. Paul with his father in 1846. He
died at the age of twenty-two years. John
H. is himself an old settler, and for a long
time was connected with 'the St. Paul &
Pacific Railroad oompany, but is now, or
was, in the employ of the Harvester works.
E. D. K. Randall was. a merchant on
Third street for some years, but has dis
appeared from public view and we see or
hear but little of him.
THOMAS 8. O'DELL— OLDEST HOUSE IN
WEST ST. PAUL. •
Occupying a pleasant niche upon
the bluff, and overlooking one
of the finest scenes m the
Sixth ward, or West St. Paul, is the rude
log house of Thomas O'Dell, whioh was
erected in 1850, or 34 years ago, and is
therefore the oldest building in that • sec
tion ot the city. This was while the land
on the West side of the river belonged to
the Indians, and the store was usdd as a
trading post. O'Dall was born in New
York; was a soldier; oame to Fort Saelling
in 1841; mustered out in 1845; removed to
St. Paul. in 1846, and helped ~ survey the
town plot in 1847. He died from the ef
fects of a cancer only a few years ago.
MBS. O'DELL, '
The widow of the subjeot of our
sketch, still lives in the Sixth ward, having
recently parted with the old homestead for
a new one. She is - a woman about fifty
years of age, somewhat fleshy, her mother
being a fall blooded Indian; her father,
Lien tenant Williams, formerly in the
army. = She has been married thirty-seven
years ,} and has lived in West St. Paul
thirty-four years. Her mother married
John Thompson, the . former slave, and
both now reside with Mrs. O'Dell.
"iiabsh on!"
What a trio! Thompson eighty-five
years old, fifty-seven years in and about
St. Paul; Mrs. Thompson seventy
years old and seventy years a
resident '"; of this. section of . country;
Mrs. O'Dell, her daughter; fifty, years old
and fifty years a ' resident. What ; changes
have transpired in the lives of these - three
people I One —the Indians—has
passed oat entirely. Part of another race !
—the old settlers, has —while a new
race, embodying pluck, and Tim, and j
energy, and enterprise, and posh, and dar- j
ing, and money, confront there antiquar
i ians, and confuse them with the introduc- j
I tion of modern idea?! The Indian who
; leads the advance on the war path, says: |
I "Marsh-on!" go-ahead! Old Time says:
"Marsh-on!"
KTENTTUL DAT3—BED BTVE3 OABTB.
In the early career of St. Paul, one of
the most eventful days was the arrival of
from 150 to 200 wooden carts, laden with j
furs from Pembina, 900 miles distant, and ,
drawn by oxen harnessed singly. There J
waa no iron about these carts and they .
were always accompanied by half-breeds, '
fantastically dressed. The furs were ex
changed tor provisions and the old carts,
having creaked into the city, creaked out
again, and the good : people waited pa
tiently for another cavalcade to make its
appearance. The old lied River bouse j
where these prairie voyageurs used to stop,
stood on Governor Ramsey's farm, now
Grand avenue, (upper part). The event in
modern days is the arrival of a circus, or j
was more properly, the opening of the I
Northern Pacific railroad. In the past the I
cry was,— for the Red river carts,"
or "until after the payment to the In
dians." Now it is,—"wait until the wheat
is cat," and the further ory is, "wait un
til the wheat is sold,,' and some of us, and
most us, having waited all these long years,
without realizing a fortune, or having real
ized a fortune, lost it, are now waiting for
the great Reaper—Death! And he is com
ing, sorely coming, for he has no partiali
ty for the human race, and is no respecter
of persons! The thinned ranks of the old
settlers show that he has been aruon'
them already, and we oan hear him ohuokle j
over the victory he has made, as he rattles
his scythe among the gray heads and
feeble limbs, and laughs as he sings: "I
gather them in! I gather them in!"
N. W. Eittson, Enj M seems to have been
the originator of the Red river trade, and j
he was followed by Jo* Roletle and his on
ole, of Pembina.
THE FIB3T PAIN KG AND ABTIBT.
From all we can learn, James MoOlellan
[foal was the man, who came to St. Paul
in 1846. He was at one time member of
the territorial legislature; adjutant gener
al, and member of the house ot represen
tatives in 1852. He was a peculiar char
acter, very generous, and his generosity
led him to poverty. He died at Mendota
in 1862.
OTUEB BKTTLEBB OF 1846.
Louis Denoyer, H. D. White and J. D.
Oruttenden, were at one period residents of
St. Paul, bat they remained here only a
short time. There is nothing notable in
their histories, and nothing that would in
terest the general reader.
DAVID tABBIBAULT
Built the New England house in 1047, ou
ground now occupied by the office of the
gas company, on Cast Third street. H«
was one of the early Indian traders. John
fUnfill remained in the city only a short
time and then removed to Manomin, on
the upper Mississippi, where he kept r.
a hotel. The place was better known as
"Rice Creek."
FIBST COOFEB AND FIRST BLACKSMITH.
Charles Roleau and Joseph Monteur
wore Canadian Frenchmen, who came to
St. Paul in 1846. Roleau was the first
cooper in the city, of whom we shall
have more to say in our next. Monteur
was the. first blacksmith.
1847—FIFTY INHABITANTS.
In 1817, thirty-seven years ago, the
ground known as Minnesota was embraced
within the territory of Wisconsin, so that,
when in 1848, Wisconsin was admitted as a
state, the young settlement of Minnesota
was left without a government. Step*
were immediately taken, however, to ef
feot a territorial organization and at a
convention held at Stillwater, a memorial
.783 passed, asking congreas to grant t.
territorial existence with the present
beautiful name, Minnesota, (meaning in
Indian, ''sky tinted or slightly turbid or
whitish water,") and this petition was
lj ranted with an agreement on the part of
those composing the convention, that "St.
Paul should be the oapitol, Stillwater
should nave the prison, and St. Anthony,
(then there was no Minneapolis,) the uni
versity, which agreement was faithfully
adhered to."
H. L. Duu^man, now dead, enggeeted the
name of Minnesota. At this time St.
Paul could boast of five stores, about
twenty families and thirty-six children,
composed of English, French, Swiss,
Sioux, Ohippewa and of African descent,
making in all not more than fifty inhabi
tants, while the entire white population it
the territory oonld not have been at thi•
time more than 300. Her oqmmercial '
element consisted of a light traffic in fare, i
a little lumbering business, and other
minor branches of trade'; but the place
began to be known and immigration be
jan to set in.
SOME OF THE OLT> FELLOWS.
Just as we get a little ahead in our his
tory, some of the real old settlers, wa>
back in 1843-6-7 pop up before us, and re
mind us of the fact that we had almost
forgotten them. Now here comes a sort
of rollicking- fellow, not tall, nor very
short, and not very large, yet a genial.
■o^ial man, and he slaps us on the back.
and on faming around we fiudhim to be
MAJ. W. H. FOKBES,
who was born in Canada in 1816, was clerk
for Gen. Sibley and Kittson; was engaged
in the Indian trade for a number of years;
was a member of the legislature four
years; presiding officer one year; post
master at St. Paul; auditor of Ramsej
county; entered the army in 1862 as com
missary; was breveted major and mustered
out in 1866; subsequently appointed In
dian agent; came to Fort Snelling in 1837
or forty-seven years ago, and in 1847 be
came a resident of St. Paul, where he con
tinued to reside twenty-eight years, or up
to the time of his death.
PERSONAL.
Maj. Forbes was an excellent good man.
We knew him well; he was in the army with
us; we were the last person he spoke with
when he left St. Paul, never to return
alive. He loved display and was ambi
tious, yet he performed his duties nobly
and well. Ha wcs impulsive, kind-hearted,
generous, social, and has left behind him a
character*un3ullied and a name untarnish
ed. We were friends together; compan
ions in the army together ; and fully com
prehended the man. He admired every
thing that was manly and denounced
everything that was mean. But he is gone;
his family is ' scattered, and
the old homestead that formerly
stood on the corner .of Fifth and Robert
streets, has been removed to give place to
a $1,000,00!) hotel —and so goes the world;
each succeeding wave washes out the foot
prints on the sands of life, made by those
who have gone before, and we pause in si- j
lence at places once made dear by their
presence, and wait—but they come not.
All is still.
J. W. BASS —FIB9T TAVERN.
Mr. Bass oame to St. Paul in 1847, at
which time, it is alleged, his wife was
abour sixteen years old. He kept store
for & time, and then purchased the Inter
est of Simeon Folsom, who ran the first
tavern in the city, which was built of tam
arao poles, and which formerly stood on
the comer of Third and Jackson streets,
where now standa the Merchants hotel.
Mr. Bass was born in Vermont," in 1815;
lived for sometime in Wisconsin, at Prairie
due Chien, and then moved to McGregor,
Iowa; married a Mi?s Branson, daughter
of Rev. Alfred Brnnson; kept hotel in this
city; was postmaster in 1849; ran a com
mission house on the levee, and finally,
in consequence of ill health, retired from
business. He accumulated a good deal of
real estate during his residence here, but
in „ 1857 " and - later, he suffered from its
great depreciation, but it finally, rose
again, and he is now well off. He is a short,
rather thick-set man, with a pleasant ad
drees; quite social in his nature, and for
years past has lived . a somewhat retired
I life. He opened a large farm en the Mn«
of the old. Sioux City railroad, but we
think has given it up. He must be in th«
neighborhood of sixty-five Years, if not
seventy. He is a flue, hale, genial gentle
man, with enough of lift's comforts to
make him happy. Mrs. Bass i* one of the
oldest lady residents in the city. She is
an elegant looking wo map, and when young
was beautiful, as indeed, with her gray
hair and clear complexion, she is now.
O. P. V. LULL —A OnAKACTEB.
All the old settlors know Lull; he was
and is to-day a character, peculiar to him
self. He was at one time sheriff of Ram
sey county and had considerable to do in
hanging the Indian Yu-ho-za «n St. An
thony hill,.which was the first execution in
the territory. He also occupied other
places of honor and of trust. He was al
ways a moving spirit among his fellow
men, and is now. He came to St. Paul in
1847, and is a man about fifty-five year*
of age. He is like a polar bear, always
on the go, always moving. A man of or
dinary size, full of activity, rnnuing over
with hilarity, a hard worker, Lull has seen
many of the shadows and but little ef the
sunshine of existence. Hi & peculiar tem
perament has driven him rough shod over
the craved hill.-t of life, and yet with all
his idiouynoraoies, he is a pleaaant man
and a genial fellow. Ho was born in New
York, and still lives, and is still aotively at
work, knocking off the rough corners of
life.—And here we pause a minute to take
breath in order to continue our Pen Pic
tures of 1847.
