     ALBERT G. BRYANT, who lives at Lucerne, Washington, and who is a well known mining man of the Lake Chelan country, was born in Centerville, Iowa, on January 30, 1872, being the son of John C. and Kate (Norwood) Bryant natives of Pennsylvania and Indiana, respectively, now deceased.  In 1878 the parents moved to Nebraska, and in that state Albert lived until 1895.  Our subject has one sister, Minnie, wife of John Whittenghen, of Brazil, Iowa.  Mr. Bryant took an active part in the Sioux lndian war of 1890-1, at Pine Ridge agency.  Albert G. was educated in Iowa, then went to York, Nebraska, where he graduated from the high school.  He then turned his attention to a life of industry and left Nebraska in October, 1895.  Going to Iowa, he farmed for two years and in 1897 landed in Chelan.  For a time thereafter he drove stage between Chelan and Orondo now called Riverview, between Chelan and Brewster and between Brewster and Coulee City.  Then he was engaged as cook and night watchman on the boats of the Columbia river plying between Wenatchee and Brewster.  Later we find him with a government surveying party until 1899, when he went to Wilbur, Lincoln county, Washington, being engaged there until 1901.  In that year Mr. Bryant came back to Chelan and engaged in government work until the spring of 1902.  Since that time he has been employed by the C. T. & S. company and the company operating the Holden mine.  In addition to this, Mr. Bryant has done considerable prospecting and has one of the fine claims on Meadow Creek, at Republic, Washington, which runs twenty-five dollars in copper.
     Fraternally, he is affiliated with the M. W. A. and the K. P. lodges, while in political matters he is a Republican and takes an active interest demanded from every good citizen in this realm.
