     a physician and surgeon in active practice at Sidney, O., with office and residence at No. 310 North Ohio avenue, has been a resident of Shelby county for thirty-one years and established in his profession at Sidney since 1894.
     Dr. Goode was reared in Champaign county, O., and from the country schools entered the academy at Urbana, where he made such unusual progress in his studies that he was awarded a teacher's certificate when he was but fourteen years of age. Afterward he continued to divide the seasons, working on the farm during the summers and teaching school, mainly in Champaign county, during the winters, for about fourteen years. He never had the leisure to wander far from this strict discipline as he was
ambitious and dependent on his own efforts in order to prepare for the medical career which was his goal from early youth. He prepared for college while teaching, under the direction of Drs. B. F. Baker, D. R. Barley and Dr. Musson, all of St. Paris, O., and after seven years of study was graduated from the Eclectic Medical College at Cincinnati, O., in 1880. In the following year he came to Shelby county, locating at Pemberton, two years later removing to Port Jefferson and from there came to Sidney. Here he has been very successful in his professional life and has been active in public matters and on one occasion was the candidate of the democratic party for the state senate.
     On January 2, 1867, Dr. Goode was married to Miss Mary Jane Ammon, of Champaign county, O., and two children were born to them; Dora, who is the wife of Charles W. Ogden, a merchant at Port Jefferson; and A. C., a graduated physician now in Alaska. Dr. Goode is physician and surgeon for the Shelby County Infirmary and Asylum. He belongs to the State and National Eclectic Medical societies and is identified fraternally with the Elks.
