Reason" and similar works, he was given a cut across the head and shoulders, and the reading continued. The next year a school-house was built and an excel- lent teacher was engaged. After the father's death, the two boys went back to Strongsville to their guardian's, Mr. Jubal WHITNEY. Here they enjoyed the privileges of excellent schools and were by them prepared to enter the preparatory department of Oberlin college. By teaching winters, with some assistance they easily carried for- ward their education. During the summer vacation of 1856, Locke being in Strongs- ville, the town was visisted with dysentery as an epidemic. The scourge was so fatal that none dare venture to care for the sick outside of the family. One family could find no one to care for them, and he volunteered his help, and, being overworked by his studies, soon fell before the destroyer, in the twenty-first year of his age--a young man of great promise. The complete failure of John's health compelled him to relin- quish study for several years. During the war he obtained a clerkship in the quar- termaster's department of Tennessee, and was there until the war closed. He came home, studied dentistry under Dr. J. F. SIDDALL, of Oberlin, O., and graduated from the dental college of Pennsylvania. During the summer of 1869 he was married to Mary S. RICE, of Oberlin, and took for his wedding tour a trip to Honolulu, Hawaiian island. Here he commenced the practice of dentistry. After four years he returned with his wife to Columbus, O., where he took a course and graduated from the Starling Medical col- lege of that city. He opened an office for the practice of dentistry in Cleveland, where he had two children born to him. Finding the weather too severe for health, in the fall of 1876 he returned with his family to Honolulu, where he has been in the successful practice of his profession ever since; res.
