when Mr. Ed Morley, of Grand Rap

greeting, he said: "Well! Mr. Wllkos,
when I met you in New York at tho
Exposition I never for once thought
that you kept such a magnificent se
lection ol house furnishings as this?
everything to complete tho houso
from kitchen to parlor. What struck
mo so forcibly as I walked along the
aisles of your store was that your pur
chases are only from tho vory bost
manufacturers. I note that you look
to tho quality and finish, as woll as to
its general appearance and price and
thore you are right, for once you sell
a customer an article of that kind, ho
will he sum to come again, whon ho
vvishes to make another purchase .
?'You know Mr. Wilkes, I have lived
for twenty years In Grand Rapids, the
aoknoweledged leader of styles and

think I know furniture when I see it,

Oapt. Q W. Shell died suddenly at
his liomo nour this city on Friday last.
Ho was born and reared in this county
and at his death was about sixty-eight
years of age. lie had his education at
tho common schools of tho day: but
early entored into commercial pur
suits and became a thorough business
man, but marrying, retired, and de
voted himself to farming. His first
wife was Miss Dial, by whom he had
one son, both of whom preceded him
In death, fa 1859 ho was married to
Miss Ella Watts Hill,who with a largo
family of sons and daughtors, survives
him. (.-apt. Shell was blessed In his
homo relations, a dovoted and affec
tionate husband, a most generous and
kindly futher. Ho was a Christian and
a prominent member of the Baptist
church; but most especially did he
fulfill the Christian virtue of charity;
generous chiefly In this that, ho whs
preeminently given to hospitality. In
18(11 he volunteered promptly to serve
his State at hor call, but was soon
made Assistant Quartermaster with
tho rank of Captain, remaining in that
capacity to the close of tho civil strug
gle. In this capacity ho was brought
Into relations with distinguished
Southern heroes, those splendid Caro
linians, Kershaw, Kennedy, Honhain
and Hotter novor ceasing to regard
him with strong attachment, lu 188?
ho was appointed by Gov. Thompson
to tho office of Clerk of the Circuit
Court for this county aud subse
quently chosen to a full term by tho
people. About 188t? ho was made
democratic county chairman, a mem
ber of the state Executive Committee,
entored actively into state politics, be
came well known throughout the State
as author of tho "Shell manifesto:" was
elected to Congress, serving two terms
In the House of Representatives, with
satisfaction to his constituency, and
then voluntarily declined re-election.
At his death he held a position under
the General Government in the census
department and hud just entered act
ively upon the discharge of its duties.
This is but a brief and condensed
.-ketch of a life full of action and more
than ordinarily eventful. Oapt. Shell
was strictly a self-made man and owed
all his success to energy, tact and in
dividual UTort. It Is not our office to
pronounce his panegyric: others can
do it better. Hut knowing him long,
wo can say without stint, if all had the
kindly heart that boat In the bosom
of Capt. G. W. Shell and It found ex
pression in active deeds as In his case,
this world would be happier for those
Who dwell in it If he had frailties,
(as who has not), thoy leaned to tho
noblest of Christian virtues?charity
