DEMPSTER, JAS. 

1897

[James Terry "Jim" Dempster]

The Herald of 1897 had the following to say of Jim Dempster, who is now (1938) county clerk of Hamilton County.

"Dempster is essentially a product of Hamilton County. He has climbed the hills, scoured the prairies, and ranged the forests of this section till he has become familiar with all portions of it. He has been an active stock man ever since he was old enough to ride a mustang still he can throw a lariat with the best of them. But this is not his principal calling, as he has been a druggist in the employ of the well known Phoenix Drug Store ever since it was first established here, and his accomplishments in the saddle and with the lasso are only side issues of the main show. Jim is understood to be one of the most reliable prescription clerks in town."
