R. pulled into Cloverport Monday night the private car of William Newman, former presi dent of the New York Central Railroad and now member of the. Advisory Board of the same company. Mr. New man came here to see his brother, Albert Newman, who is at death's door at his home near town. He received word at Wasmngton, D. C. of his brother's cri tical illness and hastened at once to see him. As soon as Mr. Newman's car was switched on the side track our friend asked for permission of an interview for us, and nis nephew, standing on the rear-of the car, said "he will see no re porter tonight". Then the crowd out side the car, anxious for a glimpse of the railroad maginate, gave a laugh and before it had snbsibed Mr. Newman called our escort back and asked him what he did here. "I am a railroad man", he answered. This unlocked the door of his heart and he sent out a gracious invitation to the newspaper girl, waiting patiently for what she knew she was going to get the life story of one of the biggest railroad men in the United States. . How He dot His Start Did you ever load any freight? If so, you know how thill man of success start ed. When he was fourteen years of age he left Kentucky and at the age of seventeen years, began work, loading freight at a small railroad station in Texas. Ever since, he has been climb ing. He never went to school. "My education I picked up, I think it is possible fcr a young man to start today, as I did forty-seven years ago; without an education, ana succeed." As he said this his soft, mixed gray and tan hat fell off the chair. He let it lie on the floor and didn't seem to notice it, which showed he paid no attention to details and only big things occupied his mind. Secret Of Success. We asked him especially what was the secret of success in railroad work. He replied with emphasis, "HARD WORK. A WILLING SPIRIT." "Work is my hobby", said Mr. New man. We called his attention to the fact that ho had a short first finger, which Indicated that he cared not to domineer, to boss. That Is the truth he agreed and went on to say that he paid more -attention to doipg what others said than having others do what he said. If the company had a change for him he always accepted it and had moved fourteen times, thinking each city would be his permanent home. He lives on Fifth Avenue in New York.

Mr Newman is sixty four years of age and was born in Virginia. His par ents moved to Metcalf county when he was quite a chap and ever since he has loved Kentucky. His last vijit to the state was ten years ago. "I expect to live until I am eighty-five years of age," he said, looking at the life line in his palm. He stepped across the car and touch ed a button, and in a 'minute his man servant appeared with a waiter of white-rock water. We took a glass of the sparkling water and wanted to say "thank you" so bad that we almost strangled His greatest joy is helping atnbitioGs young people. He has several young men and girls that he and Mrs. New man are looking after, besides doing all they possibly can for their nieces and nephews. "We have no children of our own," said Mr. Newman, "But we have child ren". "Every Sunday morning Mrs. Newman and I have all our neices and nephews in New York to breakfast with us. We always have waflles for break fast". He touched the button again and the man servant came in, handed him a cigar and lighted it. The servant struck a match to lignt our friend's cigar, but he had already lighted it! "You have had two love affairs, Mr. Newman?" we questioned. "Yes", he said, "Onlv one ever amounted to any thing". He fell in love with an Ark ansas girl, and she has been Mrs. Wil liam Newman thirty-five years. Never Gets Blue. Mr. Newman declares he never gets discouraged. He worries not. "I do not takelife seriously." He said if things go wrong, he reasons that the good side is bound to come up sooner or later. Nearly all his business associates are college men and he is perfectly at home with them. "I have cheek", said Mr. Newman. To look at his splendid head and well-placed ears, one is assured that Mr. Newman has more common sense, more gumption than he has cheek. "I ute much slang", he said. But we did not notice it. ne was as piain as an,.,! old shoe. He talked with ease and if .vm had been as poor as a church mouscj ReceiVer. could not have been less assuro per cent his manner. illy.

Mr. Newman's social life is plain. He has health, and his appearance shows that he never neglects himself. His teeth are clean and his nails, though short, showed attention. While we were sizing him up, Mr. Newman told us how much interest Mrs. Newman took in all the churches and he followed in her foot-steps, "I think the churches are doing a great work, and I give to them all." Mr. Newman surprised us when he said he read little. "I read newspapers only." He chatted with us, at least an hour. Told us about his expetlences with newspaper men, and said thot he knew Col. Watterson. "You have a musical talent, Mr. Newman," we ventured. He laughed heartily. "Yes, I can sing "Amazing Grace and Jesus Lover Of My Soul", in the way of an old fashioned Method ist." Mr. Newman was driven out to his brother's yesterday morning and exj pectedto leave in the afternoon for New York. HAVING SUCCESS WITH FAIR CATALOGUE John S.

Hook Twirled League Ball. SCORE NINE TO TEN. Hardinsburg, Ky., May 8. (Special.) In the presence of an enthusiastic crowd of nearly two hundred, the Har dinsburg Juniors, on Saturday after noon, gave a good example of how the National pastime should be played. Their worthy opponents, the Irvington College Nine, were of a sort to make any team sit up and take notice. In the first round Lyons of the visitors started the fireworks with a sizzling single over third, and when the dust had cleared away, Irvington had cross ed the rubber once. But the Juniors came right back in their half of the sec ond and tied. In the next sessions the honors were abmt eq-ally divided, but when the fifth inning arrived the score stood 4 to 1 in favor of Hardinsburg. In this frame Irvington rallied and before the tide could be stunned they had scored five times. The Juniors kept up the pepper, however, and slowly and surely worked their way back until in the seventh inning the tallies ware again even, In the ninth, Park's luc-icy triple. with one on base made Irvington one run to the good. Something had to be done and in the last ot the ninth the plucky little Juniors showed their class by scoring two runs. This inning wit nessed the star feature of the game Hoben, first man up, hit one on the seam for what looked like a sure hit, but Barr, the visitors' second sacker, ran out in short center and with a. Hy ing leap captured the ball in his gloved hand. Hook, the local pitcher twirled big league ball. The College boys are all affable gen tlemen and it is a pleasure to associate with them. .
