LAUSON C. SHOWERS
    who, since the spring of 1903, has been the efficient superintendent
of the Shelby County Infirmary, is a well known citizen of the county
and belongs to an old family. He was born October 26,1857, in
Champaign county, O., and is a son of Andrew and Mary (Slife)
Showers. He had better educational opportunities than many, after
completing the common school course attending the Urbana University for
six years, and, with a view of adopting a profession, read both medicine
and law for some months. He then decided that an agricultural life would
best satisfy him and continued with his father on the home farm until he
was twenty-eight years of age. Mr. Showers then came to Shelby county,
where he rented land for a few years and for six years was an employe of
the Sidney Wheel Works, at the end of that time entering upon his present
duties. He is well qualified for this position and in him the tax payers
have a man of good judgment and personal integrity, one who does justice
to his charges while administering the affairs economically for the
county.
    On July 1, 1884, Mr. Showers was married to Miss Elizabeth Chapple, a
daughter of William and Elizabeth (White) Chapple.  Mr. and Mrs.
Showers are members of the Baptist church. In politics he is a
democrat and fraternally is connected with the K. O. T. M. at Sidney.
