Augusta Cooper Bristol
BRISTOL, Mrs. Augusta Cooper, poet and lecturer, born in Croydon, N. H., 17th April, ?1835. Her maiden name was Cooper, and she was the youngest of a family of ten children. She was a precocious child, and her poetical taste showed itself in her early infancy. Her first verses were written at the age of eight, and she had poems published when only fifteen. She was forward in mathematics and showed in her early life an aptitude for logical and philosophical reasoning. The greater part of her education was acquired in a public school, but she was also a student in Canaan Union Academy and Kimball Union Academy. She began teaching at fifteen and was thus employed summer and winter for seven years. At twenty-two years of age she was married to G. H. Kimball, from whom she was divorced five years later. In 1866 she was married to Louis Bristol, a lawyer of New Haven, Conn., and they removed to southern Illinois. In 1869 she published a volume of poems, and in that year she gave her first public lecture, which circumstance seems to have changed the course of her intellectual career. In 1872 she moved to Vineland, N. J., her present residence, from which date she has been called more before the public as a platform speaker. For four years she was president of the Ladies' Social Science Class in Vineland, N. J., giving lessons from Spencer and Carey every month. In the winter of 188o she gave a course of lectures before the New York Positivist Society on "The Evolution of Character," followed by another course under the auspices of the Woman's Social Science Club of that city. In the following June she was sent by friends in New York to study the equitable association of labor and capital at the Familistere, in Guise, in France, founded by M. Godin. She was also commissioned to represent the New York Positivist Society in an international convention of liberal thinkers in Brussels in September. Remaining in the Familistere for three months and giving a lecture on the "Scientific Basis of Morality" before the Brussels convention, she returned home and published the "Rules and Statutes of the association in Guise. In 1881 she was chosen State lecturer of the Patrons of Husbandry in New Jersey, and in the autumn of the following year was employed on a national lecture bureau of that order.
Since her husband's death, which occurred in December, 1882, Mrs. Bristol has appeared but seldom on the public platform. She is occupied with the care of an estate and in directing the educational interests of her youngest daughter. Some of her philosophic and scientific lectures have been translated and published in foreign countries.

CHANDLER S. EDWARDS, the present president of the above named institution, was born in West Lebanon, New Hampshire, November 13, 1863, and was the elder of two sons born to Rev. Dr. J. H. and Caroline (Starr) Edwards.  His father now resides in the city of New York.
Mr. Edwards while engaged in academic work was forced to give up his studies on account of failing health and at the age of seventeen years, in 1881, went to Traill county, North Dakota, where he accepted a position as bookkeeper on the Mayville farm and held the place until 1886.  He then purchased a partnership in the bank with which he is now associated and became cashier and in 1893 became president.  In company with Mr. Grandin, under the firm name of Grandin & Edwards, he also operates a general real estate and insurance business.
Mr. Edwards was married, in 1899, to Alice Crandall.  Mr. Edwards is a young man of exceptional business tact and executive ability and he enjoys the confidence of the business men among whom he resides.  He is energetic, intelligent and progressive and is one of the rising young men of North Dakota.  Politically, he is a Republican and is a man of broad ideas and one who keeps pace with public events.  He is also interested in large tracts of the best farming land in the Red river valley of North Dakota, which he rents and sells on the crop payment plan to farmers in small tracts, which is of great benefit to the state by settling up lands with actual bona fide settlers.  In fact, he has made a specialty of splitting up large tracts of land into small farms and selling to actual settlers.  He is also president of the Portland State Bank, of Portland, North Dakota, and president of the Cummings State Bank, of Cummings, North Dakota, and a director in the Clifford State Bank, of Clifford, North Dakota.

DR. HENRY M. WHEELER, one of the best known physicians and surgeons of the Northwest, enjoys an extensive general practice in Grand Forks, North Dakota. He was born in Sullivan county, New Hampshire, June 23, 1853.
The parents of our subject, Mason and Huldah (Wheeler) Wheeler, were natives of Vermont and New Hampshire, respectively, and the father was a drover and stock raiser, and went to Northfield, Minnesota, in 1856, and spent his remaining years there. Two sons composed the family of children born to this worthy couple, the brother of our subject now residing in New York.
Mr. Wheeler was reared and educated in Minnesota, and attended Carlton College of Northfield, and then began the study of medicine under Dr. C. M. Thompson. He entered the University of Michigan in 1875, and graduated in 1877, and during the same year began the practice of his profession at Northfield, Minnesota, and in 1879 entered the College of Physicians and Surgeons of New York City, and graduated from there in 1881. He then located in Grand Forks, North Dakota and has continued his practice there since that date. He is secretary of the state examining board, serving since 1894, and is local surgeon for the Northern Pacific and Great Northern railroads, which position he has held for many years. He has also served on the United States pension examining board, and is a member of the State Medical Society of Minnesota, and was president of the North Dakota State Medical Society.
Our subject was married in October, 1878, to Miss Adaline Murry, a native of Minnesota. Mr. Wheeler died in 1881. Mr. Wheeler was married to Miss Josephine E. Connell, a native of Minnesota, in 1883. Our subject is a member of the Indendent Order of Odd Fellows, and Knights of Pythias, and was grand master of the Masonic order in North Dakota in 1888. He is a Republican politically and is firm in his convictions, but takes little part in political affairs, and has never sought public preferment. Mr. Wheeler has a handsome gold watch which was presented to him by the First National Bank of Northfield, Minnesota, in remembrance of his services in assisting in repelling the attack on that bank in 1876 by the James and Younger brothers. A history of that famous raid was written by Professor Huntington, and he tells of the bravery and quick action of Dr. Wheeler at the time. He was visiting his home during a vacation at college in Michigan, and was one of the first to suspect an attempt was being made to rob the bank. Mr. Allen was the first to give the alarm, and at the same moment Mr. Wheeler stepped into the street from in front of his father's store where he had been sitting, and he shouted "robbery," and then turned to get his gun, but remembered he had left it at home, and then went to the Dompier hotel, where an old army carbine with three cartridges were secured, and he was soon at a second-story window. His first shot was at Jim Younger, but the gun carried high, and Younger looked for the funner and rode on, and Mr. Wheeler then shot at Clel Miller, the bullet passing through the body, severing the great artery and death ensued instantly. The third and last cartridge had fallen to the floor and had burst the paper and a fresh supply was then brought him by a friend and immediately followed several shots at Bob Younger by mr. Manning, and the former dodged behind a stairway and returned the fire, and this was repeated several times, when Mr. Wheeler shot at Younger and the ball struck the robber's elbow, shattering the bone. Younger coolly changed his pistol to his left hand and continued to shoot at Manning, and while Manning was endeavoring to get to the back of the store and Wheeler was re-loading his gun, Younger made his escape, and mounted a horse behind his brother, Cole. The outlaws were pursed and captured, and sentenced to life imprisonment at Stillwater, Minnesota, and the watch presented to Mr. Wheeler in appreciation of his services is shown with due pride, but the affair is seldom mentioned by Mr. Wheeler unless he is urged to do so by his many friends.
