Roblin, for several years a resident of Ackley, died at Waterloo, Monday afternoon at 3 o'clock. Four weeks ago, at the time of the joint installation of Masonic and Eastern Star officers, and the subsequent banquet, Mr. Roblin was present and , as a one-time Whorshipful Master of Fountain lodge A. F. & A. M., he was one of the number who was presented with honorary past Masters' badges.

When only a young man he became associated with the American Express company. For several years he was clerk in the office in Waterloo, then in charge of Mr. Button. In the Days of Gold Fever His first experience as messenger was on the Illinois Central railroad, between Chicago and Sioux City. His work as messenger between Missouri Valley, IA., and Deadwood, S.D., at the time the gold fever was at its height in the Black Hills, yielded some interesting experiences. He and the other trainmen were heavily armed to repel any attack by robbers to seize the stores of gold, which were transported on nearly every trip. Mr. Roblin frequently spoke of the picturesque appearance of the people and the scenes about Deadwood in the days when life was held of little worth by bandits of the James and Younger brothers type. Robberies were common and murders frequent. Wa Veteran Master Mason Mr. Roblin was for 50 years a Master Mason. He was the oldest master of the lodge at Ackley. He was among the 10 oldest of the commandery Knights Templar at Waterloo, who conducted a ritualistic service at O'Keefe & Tonnes" undertaking rooms.
