  • The 1879-09-05 Huron Expositor. "Dr. Hornibrook of Mitchell, who last year was a candidate for the Dominion Parliament in South Perth, in opposition to Mr. Trow, has removed with his family from Mitchell and taken up his residence near Cherokee Iowa. The doct no doubt discovered that lawyers are the only professional men who can make politics profitable, but besides this he became involved with the A. M. Givson Manufacturing Company in such a manner that his removal from the company became expedient. He had been a practicing physician in Mitchell nearly 20 years, and at one time had a very extensive practice. He was a public-spirited man and popular in the community, and his loss will be much felt."
