Hiu.sda.lk, Auzut 13. Mr. 8. W.
Woodburn. Iba subject of our sketch, ni
"boraio Entrim, Ireland, ia 1833; came
to this country ia 1846. residing la
Philadelphia uolil 1852. While there he
worked in the weaving mills. After
leaving that citj ia 1852 be came to
Rock Island, where he bought a farm of
130 acres ia Coe township two and one
half miles east of Tort Btron. Ia order
to secure the means to par for the ac
quired property he worked for John Mc
Call for three years. The times being
good was greatly in his favor, but the zeal
with which be labored and the shrewd
business transactions which he made
were the chief aou ces of his success.
Mr. W. remain, on this farm until the
spring of 1SG5, when he sold his (Joe
township farm and purchased a farm in
Mercer county two miles from New
Windsor. He prchasrd one piece of
land after another until st the end of
eighteen years be had 2fi3 acres of the
floe, land in Mercer county. 10 me uu
of 1883 he purchased the Terry Hender
son farm lying two miles southwest of
Hillsdale, and in the sprng of "83 moved
oa the pi" re which is now bis perma
nent atxxle, ln rij sold the Mercer
county farm. All atlt-ntion has been
placed upon the mat) !' uicot of his farm
here upon wbirh he has made some ex
tensive improvements. In 1880 he
bought the old Thomas plsce ia Coe
towonbtp. it containing eighty acres, and
two vears later bought eighty of the old
Real farm adjoining bis pi. -e. This be
presented to his eldest son, Samuel L.
Tbe real estate that be has purchased
and now owns will aggregate 504 acres
nearly all tillable Und- Ilia specially in
farming is the raising of grain, cattle and
horses. Of the live st.x k he has some
of the BneM in the county.
In l9o3 Mr. W. was married to Isa
bella Wreath, of Coe township. Tbey
have eight children living, namely; Mary
J., wife of John lturton, a farmer, resid
ing In Canoe Creek; Samuel L. mariied
Nettie MrC'onnt'll, aud lives in Coe town
ship; lien is a painter In Chicago, and
John. Wallace. Itohrrt, William and Net
tie are at home. Mr. Woodhurn has al
ways been prominently identified with the
advancement of the community in
which be lives. He enjoys tbe dis
tinction of being a shrewd and
wise eoiMiwUor in business affairs and hi
word is relied upon oy all who know him.
As evidence of hi honesty and good
judgment, he was chosen as tbe proper
person to bold in trust some valuable
property in Merrer county and in 1SS,
when Wm. Parker died, the will made
bim executor of tbe entire estate and
chatties valued at about f 30,(i0. Ia the
spring of 1889 be was tbe unanimous
choice at the people's caucus for the office
of supervisor, but it was with considera
ble reluctance that he accepted. He was
elected by a handsome majority and has
made one of the most elUcient officers
Canoe Creek has ever had, demonstrat
ing by every action Urn deep interests
which be manifests in any undertaking.
He. it was, who brought about a settle
ment of the McEniry road case, by which
tbe town saved several hundred dollars.
Mr. W. is a prominent member of the U.
P. church, together with bis wife and all
tbe children except Denj , Jr. Politically
be is one of those rock-rooted democrats
whose principles were founded in the
days of Douglas, and even previous, ilis
political resolutions were not hastily
formed, but were founded on years of
experience and bard study.
John A. Liphardt, whose biography de
serves a prominent place in this paper,
was born in Mccklenberg, Germany, in
1840. and is consequently a resident of
the United Slates by adoption. He came
to this country in company with his wid
owed mother and ber family In 1847.
They resided in New lork City lor a
period of twelve years until 1859, when
the family came to Canoe Creek and
located mx.n the farm which is now tbe
abode of John A. When tbe family sr.
rived in New York City they were like
most emigrant. very poor. The mother
was obliged to struggle, and with tbe aid
of John and a brother, supported and
educated the remainder of the family.
Besides this, there was a small bank ac
count to ber credit at the end of Ave
years, and at the end of ten years two in
vestments were made in real estate in
that city. At tbe end of this lime, as has
already been stated, the family removed
to tiona Creek. At the fige or twenty
one years, the ut.jrt.f this sketch com
menced to work for himself. Four years
previous to this be bad been a farm
laborer. His mother resided with biro on
the hometiu-ad until ber death in 187G.

which was named after ber. Tbis ceme
tary was laid out by John A. and has
been kept in excellent condition by him,
and while there are others much larger, vet
there are none that present a finer appear
ance than Ml. Mariiih. At the death of
the mother the children sold their inter
ests to John, who has greatly improved
and beautified the place by his labors and
through the pride be takes in keeping his
premises in a presentable appearance.
He has been very prominent in town mat
ters, having held every town office from
postmaster up to supervisor, has been
road commissioner for a period of twen
tynne years, whk li office be still holds.
This is something that but few people
succeed in obtaining, and was obtained
by him only through bis efforts in behalf
of tbe interests of tbe people, and what
is more remarkable, is that be never went
to school a month in bis life. Conse
quently be is what is known as aself made
man in the strict -st sense, which be has
made himself after a bard stiupgle and In
tbe face of many disappointments. He
is a truly scientific farmer, devoting a
great deal of attention to raising grain,
of which his present prospect Is far above
the average. His present prospect for
corn is tbe liest of any in 1'ie country.
Mr. Liphardt was mairied to Mary Erk,
of Mecklenherg, Germany, in 1861. Tbey
have six children, three boys and three
glrlr, of which Sophia is the eldest and ia
tbe wife of Chaa. Eippcr, of Coe; Geo.
married Clara Ashdown and lives in
Canoe Creek ; Frank ia proprietor of a
barber shop in Chicago; and Herman,
Nellie and Mamie are at borne. Mr. L.
is a member of Pbilo lodge A. F. and A.
M. at Port Bvron, and has been a Master
Mason for fifteen years. He also holds a
membership In the M. W. A. camp in
Hillsdale, and has been council two years.
Politically be is one of those particularly
shrewd and aggressive democrats and
ays is a constant reader of the Afctucs.

As stated la last night's Abocs the
Rodman Rifles reached home from
Springfield shortly before 4 o'clock in the
afternoon, Mrs. Captain Channon and
Mrs. Sergt. McDonald accompanying
them. The boys report having passed
under much more discipline than at
camps heretofore and of having less lib
erties and more of Che practical experi
enresof camp life. Still, while there was
considerable sickness, tbe Rifles escaped
and came home feeling first rate.
Sunday morning about 4 o'clock when
the entire encampment with the excep
tion of a few of the boys trying to run
tbe guard, was wrapped in tbe arms of
Morpheus, Lieutenant Colonel Foster and
Msjor Kittleson arose and sauntered over
toward tbe battery, just to look at the
weather. Creeping up silently, they
saw one of the sentries, named Fred Law
rence, aslee.p, and forthwith put into ex
ecution a daring plan, which was neither
more nor less than to carry off a Galling
gun. Slowly, and with great exertion.
they wheeled tbe gun across the parade
ground to the regimeutal headquarters.
and then retired to their couches. When
tbe vigilant sentry finished bis nap.about
8 o'clock, be discovered the absence of
tbe gun. Sergeant Funk tracked tbe gun
down to the woods with a detail and lost
track of it. Lawrence was arrested, and
when tbe gun was finally located, was
made to haul the gun back to tbe battery,
with the entire regiment gathered to
roast him in a friendly way, while the
band played "Johnny, Get Tour Gun."

pises. lie saya mai me receiving oi
presents from their subordinates by of
ficers and others ia charge of men is very
objectionable and is not permitted on
that road any mger. A little reflection
will convince aeyono of the evil of such
a practice. Too often men who cannot
afford to contribute towards such pres
ents feel constrained to do so rather than
run the risk of incurring tbe displeasure
of or seeming unfriendly to those who
have charge over them. Courtesy to
ward tbe employed on tbe part of those
ia charge is oa much d,ue as is cheerful
obedience on tbe other side, and does
not call for recognition through tbe
means of presents.
Neither should employes be solicited
by those in charge to contribute towards
any object whether charitable, religious
or any other character. Every employe
is entitled to dispose of the compensa
tion which he receives from the com
pany as bis inclinations or necessities
may indicate, and should not in any
manner be influenced in so doing by bis

A survey is being made for tbe location
of tbe new high bridge across the river
from the foot of Rezoor street to Stony
Point. The specifications for the two
locations for the bridge one landing just
above tbe railroad bridge, and one across
from Stony Point will be presented to
Major Mackenzie in two or three riavs and
which location meets bis approval will
undoubtedly be the place where the
bridge will he built. This action is nec
essary, because the C. & N. W. officials
object to the proposed location south of
the railroad bridge, which was approved
by Mr. Mackenzie. A copy of the new
specifications will be sent to Mr. Hughitt,
at the same time they are sent to Maj .
Mackenzie. It is believed that this is tbe
last trouble which the company will ex
perience, and that work will be com
menced tbis fall and pushed along lively

AFTER THE BATH.
Clara: "I have had a most refreshing bath. The Ivory
Soap is, without exception, the most luxurious soap for bathing.
It lathers freely and is so easily rinsed off, leaving a sense of
comfort and cleanliness such as no other soap will."
Louise: "Yes, and isn't it nice to use soap that floats like
the Ivory; for if you drop it, you don't have to feel for it, but
pick it off the top of the water."
A WORD OF WARNING.
There are many white soaps, each represented to be "just as good as the 'Ivory' j"
they ARE NOT, but like all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remarkable qualities
of the genuine. Ask for "Ivory" Soap and insist upon getting it.
