Stevenson still sticks to his last in the quarters which he has oc cupied for the last 28 years in tho Thomas Judge building on the West side of Main street. He is 80 years old and has be,en a shoemaker for 63 years, but is still strong and vigorous, sound in mind and body, and busy all the time. Some of the tools which he uses were made more than 100 years ago for his father. Mr. Stevenson was born in Swanzcy, N. H., April 8, 1826, and was one of the three children if Euos and Tolly (Cross) Stevenson. He had one brother, who also followed the shoemaker's trade, and one sister, both of whom are dead. At the age of 11 he began to "work out" for his uncle on a farm in Winchester, N. H., and in the harvest season of the year that he was 12 years old he threshed without assistance three acres of oats, using a flail, an implement in common use in those days. He spent several years in the farm, working in summer and at tending school in winter, and it was not uncommon for him to labor 15 ot 16 hours a day. When he was 17 years old ho began to learn the shoemaker 'i trade of Amos Bailey in Swanzcy, the man for whom his father worked. Mr, Bailey owned a large farm, and he re quired Mr. Stevenson to spend a few months in tarm work the first year and to devote the rest of his time to shoe making, with the exception of a speci fied number of weeks when he was al lowed to attend school. For this work he was paid $40 a year and board. He had to spend four years learning the trailc, although at the end ot t years he could do as well as the men iu the shop with whom he worked. Finishing work for Mr. Bailey, Mr. Stevenson was in Keene, N. H., a short time, and he worked for a few months in northern New Hampshire. Then he returned to the Bailey shop, and after spending the winter there came to Brat tleboro in 1848. He worked three years in Charles Frost's, shoemaker's shop, which was then in a building which stood on the site of tho present Hooker building, then he spent a year in Hinsdale, N. H., and since then he Aas lived in Brattleboro all tho time. On his return from Hinsdale he worked for William Frost, Charles Frost's bro ther, in a two-story building which ( stood where II. M. Wood 's store now is. He was there until 1873 when he open ed a shop in the Hay building. He sold out after a year and worked two years for the man who bought his business. Next he set up a shop in the building which stood where the Whet stone building now stands and in which the Kstey organ company formerly mailo melodeons. This building was carried away in the freshet of 1878. Mr. Stevenson kept at his work until Whetstone brook had risen to a point which made it dangerous for him to re main longer. With the help of others he carried his things out and five min utes later the building went down. On Dee. 12, 1878, he moved to his present quarters in the Judge building. Mr. Stevenson could turn off a lot of work in his younger days. He worked with hand made tools, and for many years he used whale-oil lamps for light ing his shop and sometimes tallow can dles. "It is better to work than it is to be idle,"- said Mr. Stevenson this week. "One will live longer, if he keeps at work, especially if he is in the habit of working. I used to work evenings, but I have given that up now. I smoked 22 years, but I left off smok ing 39 years ago. My first vote for president was cast for Franklin Pierce. My father was a democrat and I sup posed I had got to be one, but since then 1 have always voted the republi can ticket. The only organization to which I belong is the I'niversalist church." On January 9, 1851, Mr. Stevenson married Miss Ktta Kdwards Howe, only daughter of Kdward and Mary Howe. Mrs. Stevenson Vas born in Brattleboro and has lived here all her life with the exception of tho year she and Mr. Stevenson lived in Hinsdale. She has read widely -and has made many clippings which she has pasted into scrap I ks. She has many volumes of these books, and they con tain a vast amount, of historical matter concerning Brattleboro, besides much other interesting matter. She has also a collection of 56 dolls from various parts of this country and from foreign countries. She and Mr. Stevenson are a delightful couple-and they are re spected throughout the community. They had two children, Fred who died at the age of seven years, and Charles, who died when he was 21. Brattleboro letter in Springfield Republican. JAMES HENRY HOLDEN.
