Hide Details Note: In 1894, a writer heaped a little praise on Mason, as a Chamber of Commerce might do today, and in so doing, gave a little to Mr. Ruttencutter.

"Mason City has not only the advantage of a building site not surpassed in her state, but has all the advantages to offer as a great commercial center with her unlimited coal fields and salt beds, with the finest clay in this section for brick manufacture, with cheap fuel and cheap building sites, it is destined yet to come out of the woods. Among many good people there, we cannot help but admire the pluck and energy of her leading merchant, W.E. Ruttencutter, whose business house is located near the O.R.R. depot at Mason. While he has for many years had a store experience, it was only as an assistant clerk in a company store at Mason City or New Haven where he only received a small salary, and though having no bad habits, yet he was unable to accumulate any capital. In the meantime, he was married to Miss Sadie Jarrot, and they demonstrated the old adage of two heads better than one, and while Mr. Ruttencutter clerked in New Haven, night found him home, and he opened a store in a room 10' by 12', which at small cost he made out of a coal house, and with $35.00 capital began merchandising on their own responsibility, Mrs. Ruttencutter taking charge of the store in the absence of her husband."

"Today they own one of the best store buildings between Parkersburg and Point Pleasant. It is full of saleable goods, dry goods, notions, boots, shoes, and groceries. Mr. Ruttencutter, in acknowledging his success, paid a pretty tribute to his wife, whom he said had helped until the success of the enterprise was assured."

Historical Notes

Hide Details Note: Company stores
In the early years in Mason they had company stores for the coal and salt miners and workers. People had to spend their wages in the company's store. William worked for one of the company stores before he started up his own business.

Note: After his wife Sadie died in 1910, Katie and Will Foglesong moved in with Papa. Later on, he lived with them until his death in 1948. "During all of those 38 years he sat at the head of the table. Mom and Dad just put up with him. Papa didn't have a conversation at the dining table; he expounded. At every meal he carried on the conversation, and the rest of the family listened. He repeated things which he had read to impress it on his memory. Everything he read had notes in the margins. He was a scholar. He talked a lot about politics."

Note: Papa used to give me a nickle when I'd give him a glass of water. One time Jimmy pulled the onions out of Papa's beautiful vegetable garden.

Note: Papa's store wasn't very successful because he had no ambition, and his wife Sadie had died. He did run for Sheriff once. He was a Democrat. The Democrats had a majority, and he thought he could win; however his party ran against him because he wouldn't do what they told him to do. "You cannot be true to your convictions and be a politician," said Papa.
