Mile Post Well And
Hardmsburg Ky SpecialMr
G W Beard celebrated his eighty
oldest young man and one of the most
active men in town always ready to
engage in a good work and to help with
work and money any good cause
He came to Hardlnsburg seventy
two years ago married nearly sixty
one years cjgo and since he was fifteen
he has been a member of the church
ever identified with church and tem
perance work In fact he Is one of
the pioneer temperance workers in the
county The first vote on temperance
in Breckenridge was done at his ex
pense except in one district Largely
through his effort has he lived to see
the county local option from center
and circumference
Mr Beard holds to the old order of
things in many respects and thinks
health is promoted by wearing only a
reasonable amount of clothing bath
ing in cold water and being temper
ate in eating as well as drinking
On the coldest mornings he delights
to wash his fae and head in the open
with the water freezing to his locks as
he returns to the house
Until thirtyseven he steadily re
fused to wear an overcoat since then
he has had but four two of which he
lost one he wore out riding upon It
while Sheriff and the other he has yet
but has not had it on this winter and
will not unless he goes away some
Years ago he purchased a pair of
gloves for a ride to Leltchfield one
very cold day Till this day he thinks
his hands would have frozen had he
not taken the gloves off and gone bare
