"CUT OUT WINE,"
LIVE TO BE 111
This Is the Sage Advice of
Patrick Healey, Who Has
Reached That Age
Gay jay rides, merrily popping
corks, alluring cabaret delights—all
will cease to trouble purity workers,
and the ever present fear of the ap
proaching grim reaper will be kicked
into the background, if the people are
wise. This from the lips of Patrick
Ifealey of Hayward, aged 111 years:
"Cut out the wine, women and song,
and you'll live to be as old as I am."
The aged philosopher has no rela
tives, .but a host of friends. He still
looks to be several years under the 100
mark, with bent back, seamed face
and the appearance of a patriarch.
Patrick states that he saw light first
in old Ireland in 1802, was a young
man when Napoleon was humiliated,
and remembers the times well.
Healey has worked many years as a
laborer and worked his way to Cali
fornia eighteen years ago. He Iβ now
in the county infirmary, owing , to the
weight of yeare. but passes along some
nifty advice to the wise ones who will
never take It.

Johnson arrived at the finish two

The race, which was one of the most
exciting ever run in the north, began
Thursday morning at D o'clock and
