Mr. M. Hissong is the proprietor of the Park livery, sale and feed stables of Arrington, where he is doing an excellent business along that line.  For some time he has been prominently connected with the commercial interests of the town, and is accorded a leading position in business circles.

His birth occurred in Champaign county, Ill., forty years ago, and in the state of his nativity he was reared to manhood, remaining there until he had attained his majority, when he removed to southwestern Missouri.  At that time he became a resident of Huntsville, Polk county, where he continued until he removal to Kansas.

He was married in Illinois, at the age of twenty-three years, to Miss Fanny Rice, a native of that state, who has proved to her husband an excellent companion and helpmeet.  Since coming to Arrington Mr. Hissong has met with excellent success in business affairs.  His livery barn is conveniently located on West Main street and is 42x50 feet in size, and well equipped for carrying on a successful business along that line.  He has a large number of good, safe driving horses and stylish turnouts, and his barn is well patronized.

He is also proprietor of the Park restaurant and hotel, where the best meals in the city are served, and their prices, together with the courteous treatment of the proprietor, has secured to him a liberal patronage.  The rooms of the hotel are commodious, convenient and comfortably furnished, and his establishment can compete favorably with the best hotels in towns of the size throughout the state; in fact, would be a credit to a place of larger size than Arrington.

Mr. Hissong exercises his right of franchise in support of the men and measures of the Democratic party, and has served in several township offices with credit to himself and satisfaction to his constituents.  He is a member of the Modern Woodmen lodge at Arrington and the Odd Fellows' society.  In manner he is pleasant and companionable, and has thereby gained many warm friends who give him their respect and confidence.
