A Ripe Old Age
.Win Shall, nuid to ha tho old
nt livlnir man in tho United

aged mountaineer celebrated his

tomobile rido. Ho told friends
that this is tho first birthday
on which ho did not work and
said ho was anxious to get uacx
to his farm, on which, hp said,
thnrn in a mortorace. Shell told
newspaper men that ho does not
exnect to livo to see another
birthday. "I am getting old "
ho said. Mr. Shell was exhibit
ing hlmaell at n ralr in Lexing
ton and will uso the monry do
rived in paying off tht mortgage
on his farm, ho said. Shell was
firafc married at the age of 19
and lived with his first wlfo for
more than 90 years. Ho iiveuu
vi'iira in one house. He is W10
father of 29 children, tho oldest

Hill, and was lull grown wnen
tho war of 1812 besran. Ho bears
his ago well.. His mind is clear
and his eyesight is far better
than that of many men sun in
their ycuth.
Would Sooner Be a Man
I contemplate the poor dumb
creatures, whoso lives are shy
of pleasant features. They aro
not learned, they are not clever,
they eat and drink and sleep
forever, and have no sane and
high ambition to reach a, loftier
condition. Their hopeless state
1 can't help seeing; I'm glad I
am a human being. I'm glad I
am a human critter, though life
ia often hard and bitter, though
gladness wanes and sorrow
waxes, and 1 am 'stuck for in
come taxes, hopes ar phoney,
I'd r "ntobea Shetland pony.
Thougn 1 am deaf and growing
deafer, I'd hato to bo a Hereford
heifer. And though a gloomy
weird I'm dreaming, I'm glad I
am a human being. We long
for happiness unbroken; that
sort of wish is often spoken; but
if life handed us no bitters, we'd
be just like the poor dumb crit
ters, which have no dreams of
high endeavor, but eat and sleep
and drink foreyer. I have my
cares, I'm doubting, fearing,
I'm stung by merchants profit
eering and though from griefs
I'm always fleeing, I'm glad I
am a human being. Walt Ma

G. B. Hecnrdt. engineer of the
public dock commission, under
whose auspices the eating plnco
is to erected. Referring to tho
enfeterin Hogardt said: "For
the convenience of longshore
men employed in loading and un
loading shins at the St. Johns
terminal It was decided by the
dock commission that a cafete
ria building should be provided.
Tho terminal is. about one and
a half miles from St. Johns
where the nenrest restaurants
aro located, and it is not prnc
leal for the workers to walk back
and forth this distance for their
meals. Plana which I have
drawn for tho enfeteriu build
ing call for an initial expendi
ture of $9000, although this sum
will have to be increased some
what, tho intention being to
provide ccrtnin sleeping accom
modations for tho men. The
