That the plenitude of satiety is seldom obtained in the affairs of life is to be considered a most beneficial deprivation, for when ambition is satisfied and every ultimate aim is realized, if such be possible, individual apathy must follow. Effort would cease, accomplishment be prostrate, and creative talent waste its energies in inactivity. The men who have pushed forward the wheels of progress have been those to whom satisfaction lies ever in the future, who have labored continuously, always finding in each transition stage an incentive to further effort. Alonzo Hartz, a well known agriculturist of Liberty township, Warren county, Indiana, is one whose well-directed efforts have gained for him a position of desirable prominence in the locality honored by his residence, and it is with a feeling of satisfaction that the biographer essays the task of touching briefly upon the salient points in his career, which has been such as to be well worth considering by the youth standing at the parting of the ways, for it shows that success may be achieved by perseverance, fidelity to duty and loyalty to proper ideals.

Alonzo Hartz, secured a good practical education in the common schools of his township and when old enough he was put to work on the farm. He has never seen any reason to change his calling, feeling that agriculture offered as good opportunities, if not better, than any other line of work. His farm in Liberty township is numbered among the best in the locality and is maintained by Mr. Hartz in tip-top condition at all times. He gives proper attention to the rotation of crops and such other phases as contribute to the successful handling of a farm. In addition to the tilling of the soil, he gives some attention to the raising of live stock, which he has found to be a profitable source of income.

Mr. Hartz was united in marriage with Elizabeth Kelly, the daughter of WIlliam Kelly, a farmer, and they have become the parents of two children, Bernice and Earl.

Mr. Hartz's religious belief is that of the Methodist Episcopal church, to which he gives a hearty support. Fraternally, he is a member of the Knights of Pythias. A wide reader and a keen observer of men and events, Mr. Hartz is considered a well informed man and because of the excellencies of his character he has won and retains the sincere respect of all who know him.
