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.

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.
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.
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.
