He subsequently engaged in farming, in which calling he was very successful, and also served as manager of the Great Western Plaster Co., of which the Beaverboard Products Co. is the successor. He later relinquished this position and again took up farming. His farms consisted of eighty acres of bottom land east of Blue Rapids, one hundred and sixty acres of land two miles east of Blue Rapids, and a farm of eighty acres of bottom land north of Irving. In 1884 he moved his residence to Blue Rapids where he owned one of the finest residences in the town. As a farmer and stockman, Samuel met with much success. He was a firm believer in the intensive farming and the keeping of the best of stock, and his farm was always one of the best in the county. He took the greatest pride in the upkeep of his fine estate and the care of his stock.
    Samuel and Clara were active members of the Presbyterian church, Samuel being an Elder. Fraternally, Samuel was a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows and the Modern Woodmen of America.

    The life of Samuel was a most active one and he was recognized as one of the progressive men of the county. He met with much success and used his influence and best efforts for the advancement of the community where he lived for so many years, and where he was held in the highest regard by all who knew him.

    Fraternally, Mr. PAUL is a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows and the Modern Woodmen of America, in which order he takes keen interest. Politically, he is identified with the Republican party. He served on the following important committees: Assessments & Taxation, Education, Mines and Mining, County Seats & County Lines, Immigration, and Ways & Means. Prior to his election to the lower house of the legislature, he had filled the office of township trustee for several terms and was also a member of the city council of Blue Rapids. He was one to whom his fellow citizens naturally turned for leadership and advice in matters of public interest; and he repaid their confidence in him by faithful and efficient service in the various offices which he filled. His influence was always exerted in behalf of every moral and social reform and he could be relied upon at all times to support the educational and other intellectual influences for the betterment of the community.
