He is a self-made man. te- ginnjng as a grain merchant at Lawn, he gave business impetus to the place. He entered the shoe business, to which some of the Kreiders were turning a gentle hand, he carried it to large commanding proportions— five large factories at present, Annville, Elizabethtuwn, MIddletown, Palmyra and Lebanon. We hope to have a separate write-up of the Kreider shoe business. He was nominated for the State Legislature, but a placs opened for his calibre and he went to Congress. TVe fact that he has been returned again and again without opposition is sufficient comment on the nature of his service. His associates in Congress have placed him on important committees without him so much as lifting ,i finger to get the appointment. }i.e was recently sent by Congress to visit the battlefields of Europe, from which trip he has just returned. He was brought up in a rDl'/itus home, and he is a religious man. At first he joined the church of,his wife, the Brethren. He was .netru- ijaental i n locating the Brethren church i& .Annville and one ot the liberal contributors to itc erec- For sevwil 0* t| bethtown College. When he united with the United Brethren, he with them duplicated the church erection service. He wa sthe life of the half millibn endowment recently raised for Lebanon Valley College. He takes a great interest In tho history of his ancestory. Every great man wants to become acquainted with the forbears who made him, and do them becoming homage. Ho has generously, without reservation, placed at our disposal all his extensive Krelder records. And what reflects as much credit on him as does anything is the fact that in his palatial home in Annville he and his good wife have not departed from the wholesouled hospitality of tho Brethren and Mennonltcs of old. He is a wholesouled family man, and has not been shackled by this contemptible, if not criminal, modern fatihion fad of no children or one child t-r two. He has a family of ten living children: Ammon H. Kreider, m. Nettle Locheman, of York, Pa.: co-manager of the Lebanon, Shoo factory, residence Fourth and Cumberland streets; 2 children: Nettle Margaret and Ammon H., Jr. David Robert. Krolder, m.
