-It is twenty-five years today since Mr. and Mrs. H. H.

News. (8 May 1902)

-HON. H. H. WOODRUFF
CANDIDATE FOR
STATE LAND COMMISSIONER
Hon. H. H. WOODRUFF of Roscommon, needs no introduction to the people of this portion of the state where he has resided from the early pioneer days, and has ever held a leading position as a progressive citizen, and a champion for any cause that promised to the betterment of conditions for the settlement of the county, and its material advancement.
As a business man and attorney his counsels have been eagerly sought, and at home, where most intimately known, his worth has been recognized by his being called to fill every important office in the county, or in his home town. He has been County Treasurer, Circuit Court Commissioner and judge of Probate, and has served eighteen years as Prosecuting attorney.
He was elected last year from this, the 28th senatorial district, as a member of the Constitutional convention, where his knowledge and experience gave him the opportunity of proving his worth to the people, and where he added largely to his already enviable reputation. His prime knowledge of tax law, and of the conditions existing in this part of the state regarding deserted, cut-over and the plains lands, and his firm stand, and practical knowledge of the forestry question, which paramount issue here, makes him an ideal candidate for the position, and we believe his candidacy will be so favorably considered through the state that he will easily win out.
He is, and has ever been an unquestioned republican, but not of the kind that will in any way sacrifice honor for party.
Our endorsement of him for this place is unconditional as we believe him eminently fitted in every way and the peer of any candidate who may be named. (14 May 1908)

-Word was received here last Sunday of the death of Mrs. H. H. WOODRUFF of Roscommon. She has been an invalid for years, and for some weeks past her condition has been acknowledged as serious, but when the final blow came, though watched for, it seemed sudden. Hers has been a lovely life, though filled with physical suffering, her loving nature made her an ideal wife, mother and friend as all who knew her will testify, while they, with the bereaved husband and two daughters mourn her going, yet, rejoice that she has entered into rest.
