During that time he attended the district school, in which, by the time he was nineteen years of age he had obtained sufficient education to teach school. After teaching one term he entered the normal school at Valparaiso, where he attended two terms. He then taught another term of school after which he located upon a farm in Clear Creek Township. There he was engaged in agricultural pursuits until January, 1885, at which time he came to the City of Huntington and took an interest in the large furniture establishment owned by M. B.
