Deters & Paus, proprietors of the Eitzen Auto and Implement Company, of Eitzen, Minn., are men of enterprise and ability, natives of the same neighborhood, born in the same year, and whose lives have run largely upon similar lines.

Alfred H. Deters was born in Allamakee county, Iowa, April 21, 1885. He received a common school education, and remained at home until 1910, after which he followed garage and factory work and farming until 1917, when he formed his present partnership with Mr. Paus. He was married in July, 1918, to Clara Kruse of Eitzen.

Mr. Paus was born in Allamakee county, Iowa, Sept. 13, 1885, and, like Mr. Deters, was educated in the common schools. After beginning industrial life he was engaged in farming until 1912, when he opened a blacksmith shop in Eitzen, later, as above mentioned, becoming Mr. Deters' partner.

He was married, Oct. 14, 1916, to Emma, daughter of Barney and Mary Deters, of Eitzen, and they have one child, Milton, born Oct. 10, 1917.

The firm of Deters & Paus have built a fine garage, constructed of cement blocks, and measuring 50 by 70 feet. They sell Ford autos, keep a general line of farm machinery, and also do general blacksmithing. Beginning June 1, 1917, they have since made satisfactory progress, both being energetic and capable men, and of wide acquaintance. They are Republicans politically, and having been reared in the faith of the German Evangelical church, are members of that congregation at Eitzen.
