 History - 1913 Industrial Edition



Mr. Marshall has been actively identified with the civic and business life of Atlantic for the past nineteen years. Upon his coming to this city he engaged in the dry goods business and has continuously devoted his energies to that calling.

Mr. Marshall was the former president of the Citizens Savings Bank which is now extinct. He is active in the Commercial Club and appreciates the opportunities that Atlantic has to offer those seeking a good location for manufacturing purposes. He is a member of the Masonic and Elk lodges and of the school board. Mr. Marshall is a man of affairs and versed in all the details of his diversified interests. In his business ventures he has been successful.

The Marshall store on Chestnut street is one of the institutions of Cass county and numbers among its patrons many people from southwestern Iowa. The stock this store carries is a large and varied one, calling for the outlay of many thousands of dollars. He also owns over sixteen hundred acres of fine Nebraska land, which puts him on "easy street." Mr. Marshall is popular both socially and commercially and deserves all that fortune grants him.


These ladies have one of the neatest and most attractive hat shops in this part of Iowa. Their stock embraces all the popular color combinations and late trimmings, from the artistic viewpoint they please the most fastidious. The low prices on these creations place them within the reach of the many.

On display at this store is a profusion of striking models, the very choicest that they have ever offered at the prices now prevailing. Every model is new and correct. They have a becoming style for every woman. Several times per year Misses Foley and Collins take trips and inspect the large millinery houses in the great commercial centers, that their patrons may receive the benefit of every new mode. They are believers in Atlantic and its possibilities and contribute liberally to every worth cause that has for its object a greater Atlantic.


For a period of five years Mr. Grubb was associated with the Chicago and Northwestern railroad in the capacity of a telegraph operator. At the expiration of this period he attended a business college at Clinton, Iowa. This gave him a thorough technical and business training that has been of immense benefit to him in his present work. Mr. Grubb has been a resident of Atlantic since 1892, and has been continuously engaged with the Cass County Abstract and Title Insurance Company, ofwhich he is owner.

A business of this character requires the utmost diligence. No man is better known throughout this county and none is more highly respected than "Charley" Grubb.
