He spent his vacations working in newspaper offices in Waupaca, Antigo and Rhinelander. After finishing school he entered the employ of the Rhinelander Printing Co., then (in the early 90's) publishing the New North at Rhinelander, and was job printer, foreman, and manager of the office, being in charge for five years during the ownership of George W. BISHOP, then secretary of the first State Board of Immigration and afterward a member of the Wisconsin Board of Control.
