Mr. Muck was a democrat in politics, but he had never held a public office. He always worked for the best interests of his friends, who had had political aspirations, however, and could always be relied upon as a being a standard bearer and worker for the causes advocated by the party immortalized by Jefferson, Jackson and our own Hendricks. He only recently celebrated his seventy-eighth birthday, the anniversary of his natal day occurring on the twenty-fourth day of March.
