Organized a Brass Band During the Civil War If you are a "leetle boy" or a grown-up one, sometime when playing down on the river bank on the upper side of the creek, go up to that black smith shop and ask that man, whose hair is snow white, to tell you of when he saw King William of Germany.long, long lima ago! He used to wade In the River Rhine where Napoleon crossed with his great army. And if you will stand around while he is feeding his chickens, he will tell you many Inter esting stories of his life because the first time his mother sang him to sleep was in Prussia not many days after August 12, 1SIJ6 his birthday. LEARNED TO STEAL FIRST. Before he knew his A. B. C's, he knew how to steal. One day he was walking through a prune orchard, he was hungry and stole some prunes. And the great big policeman, who was watching the orchard for the rich own er, wanted to arrest mm anu ne saiu no would lose his job if he didn't. But the little thief's mother pleaded for him and a mother's plea, you know, can do many wonderful things for her son. That happened over a half century ago and this old man tells the story of his first lesson as If ho learned It yesterday SAILS FOR AMERICA. When he was seven years old his par ents took a ship for America and were forty days and forty nights coming to New Orleans. Henry Jacob May, then in his heart became a citizen of the United States and today, he and John Krouch, of Rome, Ind. , are the only two left of the thirty families of the old county who settled at German Ridge, Ind. This little German chap, whom every body called "Jake," was not under the red, white and blue flag long until he was left an orphan and fell into the care of Thos. Hanna, for whom Mr. May has a loving memory. He stayed at his home in Indiana, worked on his farm three years and went to school three months each year just .nine months was his only schooling, but he has read the bible through three times. COMES TO CLOVERPORT IN 1851. At tbe age of eighteen years he came to Cloverport from Cannelton and be gan his bus! nest; career. He chose the trade of blacksmith because, he said, a blacksmith can stay at home and the world will come to him. Seven years he was in the mercantile business and kept every thing from a mustard seed to a silk drees. At one time he accu mulated 25,000, and now he says he has $50,000 coming to him. "If I had all the money I "have made, two mules could not haul it away" said Mr, May. i Wats. I J J VI 11' Wanted Salesman. WANTEH-A rooI agent to represent us In T lircrkenrldRp County.

Northwlthstandingthls he will bring to town this week between four and five thousand pounds of the red weed. ADVICE TO A YOUNG MAN. "My advice to. a young man in the business world is to go slowly, steadily a rolling stone gathers no moss to loan no one money, don't take stock In a company unless you have enough money to choke all the other stock holders out" advised Mr. May serious ly. ORGANIZED A BRASS BAND. At the opening of the Civil War he organized a brass band that cost him $1000. He gave Wallace James, the teacher 50 a month. The members were: John and Court Babbage, Chas. Walters, John Wesley Allen, Jesse Wright, Lou Pate, Jim and Sam Ham bleton, Lane Woods and Columbus Beasley. "We had a great time for four years. Once our band was play ing Dixie, and Gen. David Murray's mother tried to pull the horn out of my mouth, but she didn't," laughed Mr. May. WAS SURE YOUNG ONCE. Mr. May said when he was a young fellow that dancing was his chief de lightdanced all night and would shoe horses all the next day. A same of cards was always a joy to him. He never played for money, but once he won thirty-six turkeys and thought he was going to have many days of feast ing, but his wife wouldn't cook a single turkey. This was the first disappoint ment "Rebecca" gave him, and he says If he had listened more to her In regard to many things, he would have been far better off today. THE SECRET OF HAPPINESS. Mr. May says the best happiness is not the good luck that comes to you, not unexpected riches, but pleasure that you make yourself. "My greatest pleasure is standing behind the anvil where I have been sixty-two years. I would rather blacksmith than smoke". As he said this he pulled out a pipe that Mr. Murray brought him from Germany. WANTS TO LIVE ON. "I want to live always, Clpyerport is God's foundation", remarked Mr. May. He enjoys his children and is proud of his grand-children, but his "baby" (Raymond) Is the joy of his heart I The last few days Mr. May has not been able to leave the home of his daughter, Mrs. Alvin Simons, but he does not look ill. He has a twinkle In his eye that shows he has life much of it in him at the age of seventy-five. Not one bit of pessimism, nor malice, nor envy leaks out in his little chats, and makes one see that years can drop all that is not lovely, that old age is an untarnished honor.

Gtoliarn Cry FOR FLETCHER'S CASTORIA Lula Glaser's Opera The story of "The Girl and the Kai ser," In which the Messrs. Shubertwill present Lulu Glaser and a large com pany at the Shubert Masonic Theater, February 8 and 9, is based on an inci dent in the life of the Austrian Emper or, Josef II., when he met a pretty girl in the royal game preserves and again discovered her in Vlanna In time to save her sweetheart from execution as a deserter from the army. There is a definite and constant plot, stronger and more healthy than the average operf etta plot; let it be said to the credit 0 "Dle Forster Cerlst'l," under which ti tle "The Girl and. the Kaiser" ran for a long time in Austria and otherfEuro pean countries.
