ness he followed successfully for thirteen 3'ears,his
time being spent in study and practice as a musi-
cian. Though he has long since abandoned music
as a means of obtaining a livelihood, he has a good
voice, and often entertains his guests with choice
selections. About 1879 he became interested in
the livery business at Shanesville, but at the end
of four years sold out and went to Burgh Hill,
Trumbull Count}', Ohio, where he bought a hotel
and also a farm, which he supervised. When a
favorable opportunity presented itself, he sold out
and came to New Philadelphia. He leased the
Gilsey House, which he ran for ten months, and
then became the owner of the .Sherman House.
This he remodeled and refitted at large expense,
and has since conducted.

In politics Mr. Wallick deposits his ballot for
Democratic nominees. He is identified with Equity
Lodge No. 72, K. of P., the only society to which
he belongs. His wife is a faithful member of the
Lutheran Church, and has a large circle of sincere
friends. She personally attends to everything
which would naturally come under her supervision
as a good housekeeper, and to her are due in no
small measure the neat appearance and cleanliness
which are the well known factors of the hotel man-
agement. The traveler conies under their roof
with pleasure, and departs with regret.
