No better example of thrift, energy
and pertinacity in business can be
found than that furnished by U. .
Hurlburt, who 10 years ago purchased
the bankrupt stock of . B. Hand
Baker and by hard work and close ap
plication to business, together with
kind and courteous treatment of hi
customers, he ha succeeded in estab
lishing a general merchandise trade
that in amount of sale and size of
stock carried exceed any house of it
kind in Junction City.
Mr Hurlburt came to Lane county
with his parent from Page county,
Iowa, when, he was la year olu, locat
ing in Eugene. After an educational
course at the University of Oregon, he
entered the employ of Patterson,

gaged in the jewelry business until
J8D2, when the subject of this sketch
moved with hi family ; to Junction
City. Since that Mr. Crain haa. car
ried on hi chosen avocation, with
varying success, to date. During his
busines career in this city he has
met with reverses that would have
taken the heart out of men better
physically endowed by nature to stand
the strain of an up-hill battle for mer
cantile supremacy. Fire destroyed
his place ot business in 1893, entail
ing a loss of f 400, followed by two
robberies, the combined loss in which
amounted to f GOO. Notwithstanding
these discouragements, Mr. Crain,
who is permanently crippled and
whose health is really feeble at all
times, can be found at hi post of duty
daily attending to the wants of the
people in his line. He enjoys the
reputation of being a first class jewel
er in every respect. , ; -
Mr. Crain is a devout Christian, a
member of the Methodist church, and
on many occasions has occupied the
pulpit in the absence of the pastor.
As a matter of fact, he has been a
local preacher for over 30 years, and
at one time tilled that position for a
whole year for the Methodist denom
ination in Eugene. He has also been
the prime. mover in the erection of
more than one house of worship. In
all things of an educational and re
ligious nature Mr. Crain takes a deep
interest. He is the author of quite a
number of poems of merit. 1
