He was educated in the public schools, and after completing his studies his father took him to the lumber camps with him, where he remained three years. He then began life on his own account. He obtained employment on the canal, and took the eastern trip as far as Albany, and returned west as far as Orrsville, where he decided he was not fitted for canal life and took sudden leave. He worked as clerk in the general store of William Putnam for two years, then returned to Gloversville, and entered the employ of Jonathan Ricketts, where he learned the trade of glove making. Later in life he formed a partnership with Denton Smith, and as Shutts & Smith manufactured gloves and mittens until 1875, when the firm dissolved. Mr. Shutts then engaged in the sewing machine business, which he carried on with successful results until 1909. Since 1885 he has been a partner of E. S.
