old died last week at his home near
Hyden, Leslie County, and was bur
led with two of his sons, William
Shell, 10, and Albert Shell, 7, as
mourners at his grave, according to
reports received here tonight.
"Uncle John," Is was said, retalne-1
his facultlea up to the last, and dla
cussed the funeral arrangements
with his relatives while h was dying,
He had always maintained that he
was born in Tennessee ' In 1788, the
son of Samuel Shell, a gnn miker,
and that he had lived In the little
cabin on Greasy Creek, In which he
died, for more than 100 years
Up until the time he was "diBCOv
ered" about four years ago", "Uncle
John" had led a secluded life In the
mountain country, but since then he
bad traveled consderably.

SAYS ANIMALS DO REMEMBER
Why Old Idea Is Wrong Is Proved by
Incidents Related by English
I have rend an article In which a
trapper denies that animals have a
real memory, says a writer in the Lon
don Times. He admitted that most of
them knew enough to avoid a trap af
ter an experience or two with) it.
hut contended that this was merely
a manifestation of the self-preserva
The same man cited an instance
uot at ail unfamiliar of a dog's re
fusing to hunt with a man who had
kicked Itl in. lie said that this too
was only the instinct of all living
creatures to avoid injury.
Animals do have memory at least
some of them do. The trapper's theory
would not explain those many evi
dences of recollection wherein self
preservation pluys no part. I once
carried a fox-terrier into the house
after he had been well-nlglt killed by
an automobile. -.His master had just
moved into the apurtmeiit house, and
I had never seen the dog before thut
day. We moved away two days later,
and I did not see the terrier for over
four months. Then one day I pussed
lite house or was uliotit to do so
vihen out enme that dog, wagging his
slulihy tail. He Jumped all over me,
lu Joyful recognition and memory.
An lionising story, sit;uitlcaiit on this
aulijcct, is told by my father. As a
hoy he lived on a farm, and Was al
ways a close student of animal nature.
The inure he usually drove was old
und fat. and would never go faster
than a walk unless urged. There were
two roads to town, one hrunchlng off
from the oilier mid a little shorter. It
hud heen old Maud's custom to take
tills road, of her own volition, until on
one occasion a vicious dog barked at
her and snapped at her legs. After
that the driver hud to he on his guard;
Maud would speed up when about 50
yards from the turn otf and try to get
hy It before she could be restrained.
This showed not only memory but
a senM) for planning.
Why Mirrors Become Clouded.
These wintry and rainy days are
sure tough for me," said the elevator
mail In un office building.
'How's thatT" asked the cusuul pus-
"Look at those mirrors on each side
of the cur," directed the elevutor niun.
"I have to wle them off about every
live minutes. On cold days the femi
nine nose gets red, and on rainy days
well, the rain washes the powder
off their noses. What's the result?
Kvery carload I take up crowds over
near these mirrors, tukea out the old
powder puff and starts dollln'. There's
a biuich of tliem. you see, and by the
time I reach the top floor the mirrors
are so clouded, with powder they don't
reflect a thing."
"ICxcept possibly feminine vanity,"
observed the casual passenger.
Why Malamuts Dsgs Ara Scarce.
Mulaiuute dogs, thb half-wolf, half
canine animals known as huskies, are
selling in the North at JUKI apiece
and up. according to returned hunters
and prospectors. When the North Is
snow-bound and lakes and rivers are
locked with Ice against navigation,
travel is almost exclusively by dog-
sled. The lowest price at which dogs
can be obtained la $100 each, accord

such, as crack "mushers" pride them
selves on keeping, are bard to get
at any price, and when 'obtainable
