Welch & Co., lumber dealers, where he remained about three years, when he again took the management of G. R. Wilson & Co's. retail coal department, and there remained tour years longer. His health failing him, he gathered together his worldly wealth, which by hard work and strict economy he had accumulated to a sufficient sum to enable him to buy his present farm, where he has since lived and enjoyed his country life.
