In 1878 there appeared In Hurley , S. D. , a man who gave his name ns G. II. Goddnrd. Ho began the practice of law nnd was fairly successful. Ho also Invested heavily In real estate , which was then very cheap and is now val uable. Ho never mentioned his past Ifo , but settlers agreed that Goddard VIIH not his real name. He possessed considerable ability and a line educa- Ion. Goddard was candidate for various illlccs , hut shifted his political beliefs so often that ho wns not successful In lint line. When ho came hero he losed ns an Episcopalian , but later be came very active In the Catholic church and finally was appointed pro- essor In the Catholic college nt the intlonnl capital , where ho remained i year and was then sent to the Phil- pplnes , whore ho remained two years is the head of the Catholic schools here. About a year ngo ho returned from he Philippines and rejoined his fain- ly here. Two of his daughters still eslde near Hurley. Shortly nftor re- .urning he quarreled with his wife , who left him and Is supposed to bo in Colorado. Goddnrd continued his practice at Hurley until a few weeks ngo , when he converted all his property Into cash , selling every vestige of the old home , down to the family albums and keep sakes , and oven his law diploma. granted him by the old Dakota court , and everything went on a cash basis , ic refusing to take any securities in xny form.
