WILLIAM W. MARMON, druggist, Bloomington. The history of the business industries of McLean County would not be complete without a personal sketch of Mr. William Marmon, the wholesale and retail druggist. He is a native of Wayne Co., Ind.; it was there he spent the early part of his life and received his education ; in 1846, he came to Bloomington and engaged as a clerk with Messrs. Luce & Parke, who were then engaged in the drug trade; he remained with this firia until 1851, when the firm changed to Paist & Elder: he remained with these gentlemen until 1854, when he bought Mr. Elder's interest in the business; he and Mr. Paist were partners until 1873, when the death of Mr. Paist occurred; since that time, he has conducted the business alone; under bis supervision it has grown to almost incredible proportions; a better conception of the extent of it may be had when the proportions and amount of his stor. age-room is known; at 115 North Main street, where his establishment is located, he is using three floors and basement, and of 113, he has two floors and basement, each room and basement being 23x80 feet; placing the whole upon the ground floor, it would make one immense storeroom of 560 feet in length; but few of the citizens of Bloomington are aware of the extent of his business ; he does a general wholesale and jobbing trade, in which he employs traveling salesmen. He has proven himself one of the best financiers of the county; his name, reputation and business are so well known that any compliments of the press are wholly unneeded. He is the oldest business man now engaged in business in the city-that is. tnere is not a single man in the mercantile trade at this date that was doing business when he began.

M. L. MOORE, harness manufacturer, Bloomington. One of the leading, if not the largest, retail harness and saddle manufacturers of Bloomington is Mr. M. L. Moore, who is a native of Sangamon Co., Ill. In 1847, he began learning the trade of a harness-maker, in Jacksonville, Morgan Co., by serving an apprenticeship of three years. In 1851, he came to this city and engaged in the manufacture of harness and saddles; in 1853, he took Mr. P. Whitmer as partner, ihis partnership lasting about three years ; he then bought Mr. Whitmer's interest in the business, which he conducted until 1862, then sold out to Mr. M. X. Chuse and entered the army in the war of the late rebellion. He enlisted in Co. K, 94th I. V. I., as a private, but was elected by a vote of the line-officers Quartermaster of the regiment. He was in the service from August, 1862, until August, 1865. Upon his return from the army, he became a partner of Mr. Chuse in his old business. In 1867, he bought Mr. Chuse out, and has since conducted the business alone. His establishment is located at 114 South Main street, and is neatly fitted up and stocked with a full line of harness, saddles, collars, whips, robes, nets, trunks, valises, and, in fact, everything pertaining to a complete and well-stocked establishment of this kind. He sometimes gives employment to as many as fourteen men. By his honesty and square-dealing, he has established a business of which he has every reason to be proud.

A. MAYERS, undertaker, Bloomington. Mr. Mayers is another of the citizens of Blooming ington who, in his line of business, deserves special notice. He is a native of Pennsylvania, and was born July 10, 1827. He had but little chance of acquiring an education. As he grew to manhood, he learned the trade of a cabinet-maker, and, in 1848, came West, locating at Bloomington, where he has since resided. When he came here, he commenced working at his trade, which he followed as a business until 1875, when he engaged in his present line of business. This business he seems to have a natural talent for. As it is a peculiar business, it requires a man well adapted to it to conduct it properly. He is located under the post-office building : here he has everything complete in the line of metallic caskets and burial-cases, of various sizes and kinds; also a full line of shrouds. In 1851, he was married to Miss J. J. Anlow, of Kentucky, and, in 1865, was elected Township Collector, which office he filled with credit and ability:

B. P. MARSH, A. M., M. D., Bloomington. In all professions, and more especially the medical, we find men of different qualifications. There are those who claim the title of M. D. upon the fact of a diploma having been granted them, and others who have earned the title by years of hard and comprehensive study. Included in this latter class is Dr. B. P. Marsh, who is a thoroughly-educated gentleman, in literary lore as well as in the sc ence of medicine. He is a native of Allegany Co., N. Y.; he was born Feb. 25, 1841, and began the study of medicine in 1863; attended lectures at both the Hahnemann and Rush Colleges, of Chicago. He began the practice of his profession, but, his health failing, was obliged to give it up for a time. In 1868, he accepted the position of Superintendent of the Bloomington High School, which position he held over five years. Regaining his health, he again began the practice of medicine. By bis pleasant, genial manner and thorough knowledge of the science, he has met with very gratifying success. Since his practice in Bloomington, he has frequently written some very valuable articles for the different medical journals. For the past two years, he has been Professor of Physiology and Hygiene in the Wesleyan University.

D. O. MOORE, M. D., Bloomington. Another of the leading physicians of Bloomington, who has established a name and reputation by his works, is Dr. D. 0. Moore, whose practice is large, and of a gratifying nature. He is a native of Harrison Co., Ohio; was born Aug. 21, 1838, and began the study of medicine in 1858, under Dr. Emerson. now of Chicago, but a resident of Bloomington at that time. He began practicing in March, 1863, since which time he has devoted his full time and attention to the study and practice of his profession. He is a member of the McLean County Medical Society and of the Minois State Medical Society. By his energy, industry and good financiering, he has accumulated some very fine and valuable property in and near the city. Left to depend upon his own resources when quite young, he learned the value of time and money by his own varied experience. During 1859-60 he was engaged in freighting goods and supplies from Omaha, Neb., to Denver, Col.; while employed in this way, he learned much of Western life on the plains. The hardships and sickness endured by him while there stimulated him to provide himself with a good home, which he now enjoys.

B. W. MASON, Deputy Sheriff, Bloomington; was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, July 15, 1836; was educated at Kenyon College; from 1855 until 1859 he was employed in the Post Office Department, when he entered the County Recorder's office. During the late war he was in the Quartermaster's Department of the Army of the Cumberland. He came to Bloomington in 1864, where he has since resided, a well-to-do citizen. His first mercantile experience was in the hat and cap business, when he first located in Bloomington, in which he continued until 1867; he then acted in the capacity of book-keeper for different firms, until he received his present appointment; he has filled these responsible positions with credit. His wife was Miss Hattie Steele, of Peru, Ind. ; they were married Dec. 29, 1864, and have two children-Charles S. and Camilla M.

Mayers, the junior member of the firm, is a thoroughly practical miller ; under his skillful management their business has steadily increased ; they have not striven for a merchant trade; but, by square dealing and good work, theirs has become the leading custom mill of the city.

Beauregard, and from that time until his death, he was always present where danger was to be met, or laurels won, and was ever a brave, faithful, energetic and accomplished soldier. In consideration of the services he has rendered the country, and inasmuch as he was long officially connected with this court, the members of this bar, in perpetnation of his memory, pray that this paper, together with the following resolutions, be spread upon the records of this court;

Resolrod, That we, the members of this bar, have heard with the deepest regret of the death of Lieut. Col. William McCullough, the Clerk of this Court, who fell in battle, bravely contending for the liberty and laws of bis country against a causeless and most wicked rebellion.

Plesolved, that in the death of Lieut. Col. McCullough we feel that we have lost a warm-hearted, faithful friend : but our greatest regret is that the Government has lost a brave, accomplished and patriotic soldier, and liberty a valiaut champion.
