oecn 67 vcars old had he lived until
Oct. 7. 1916. The clubs historian traced
the younjr Hoosier from the time he quit
the jniblic school, through his career as
a sijm painter, a traveling entertainer
for a medicine peddler and as city edi
tor of the Anderson. Ind.. paper. He
then went to the Indianapolis Journal as
a writer of verse and remained with this
paper until he went on his famous lec
ture tour with Bill Xye through the
country. His writings and lectures made
him wealthy at that time and he did no
more newspaper work, devoting his time
to his writings and an occasional lecture.
Afflicted in 1910.
His first stroke of paralysis occurred
in 1910 and he learned to write with his
left hand as his right side had been af
fected by the paralysis. The second
stroke occurred on the morning of his
death and he never recovered from it,
dying at 10:50 on the night of the 22nd,

and museum of the block in memory of
Riley. He also read verses from Rilev's
poem on "Lockerbie Street" and his
famous poem on the death of a friend,
"He's Not Dead, He's Just Away."
Dr. Thompson Knew Him.
Dr. Howard Thompson, formerly of
Franklin. Ind., gave an interesting remi
nescence of Riley as he remembered
him when the poet went to Franklin to
speak at a lecture course. Dr. Thomp
son also gave a clear analysis of Riley's
art and declared that he would live
through his poems as Burns lives. Dr.
Thompson also quoted from Riley's
poems and gave some original facts "of
Rih-y's life and works. Dr. Thompson's
talk is to he mane a part ot the perma

cause of its historical value.
