the son of Adam and Rachel Sheffer; he a native of Maryland, and

twentieth year, he went to Kendallville, Noble Co., Ind., where he remained about eight years, and where he first engaged in the printing business. In 1872, he entered the office of the Ligonier Banner, published in Ligonier, Noble Co., Ind., where he worked about five years, then came to Angola, and in July 1879, purchased a half-interest in the Herald, and in January, 1878,

Mr. Sheffer has built up a good circulation, and his paper is filled with the most valuable news and reading matter for the general reader. He is a friendly, pleasant gentleman, and in the short time he has been in Angola, has made hosts of warm friends, who speak highly of him as a man and newspaper publisher.
