Lyon, a careful conscientious young lawyer of Springfield, who has made an en viable record for honesty and up rightness of character, has en. tered the race for the nomina. tion on th t epublican ticket for the office of representative in the G euera 1 ssi mb! y. Born in 1872, Mr. Lyon’s ear ly life was spent on the Kansas frontier farming and herding cat tie. Early in life he developed a longing for an education and at 16, with the consent of his par ents, who were unable to give him or even assist in giving him a college education, he started out with 35 cents in his pocket and a suit of blue jeans for ward robe, to earn an education, and succeded. At the age of 21 he graduad^d with the degree of B. S. from the largest agricultural college in the world. During the last two years of this course he had al most complete charge of the field experiments with grain con nected with the college and cov ering nearly 200 acres. After graduating he taught school for 3 years and then as sumed the complete control of a 320 acre farm aud managed the same until he entered the Uni. versity of Michigan, where, three years later, June, 1900, he re ceived his degree of ‘Bachelor of Laws/' adopted Illinois ai d Springfield as his home and en tered on his chosen profession.
