He attended the district school, in which he received a good common school education. At the age of eighteen he took up the avocation of a teacher and was thus successfully engaged for six years. In the meantime he had fitted himself for this work by attending the normal school at Valparaiso six terms. In June, 1879, he was elected to the office of County Superintendent and served in a very creditable manner one term. In the spring of 1882 he engaged in selling agricultural implements. To this his attention was directed one summer. In November, 1882, he engaged in the furniture business in connection with John F. Fulton—the firm name being Fulton and Stults.

December 25, 1878, he was married to Lydia O. Mishler, third daughter of Jacob and Sarah Misler, of this city. She, also, was born in Clear Creek Township, this county, August 28, 1857. This marriage has resulted in the birth of two children: Clarence E. and Flora May. The former died in infancy. Mr. and Mrs. Stults are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church. The former is a member of the K. of P. Lodge, and a Republican in politics.
