Some time ago we noticed that

serves us right we have found him.
W, 0. A. Park has a mule that is
83 years old and can do a cousid
erable amount of work yet. Th e
mule was owned by J . F. Park a
long time and helped by his good
work to raise eight children and
six of them learned to plow with
him. Three of the boys are stone
outters and do farm work also,
one is a minister aud two are on
the farm,- One of the girls are
married and one single. '1 his
