Price's Animals
May Be Disposed
Of, Says Davis
LeRoy Davis Jr., an intimate
friend of Thomas Price, told The
Mountaineer last night that he
believes that when Mr. Price's
personal papers are probated
there will be found in them a
provision to dispose of all the
animals that Mr. Price had on
his estate on Lickstone Mountain.
During a recent visit at the
cabin. Mr. Price told Mr. Davis
that he did not want the animals
in "anybody else's hands." He
intimated to Mr. Davis that pro
vision had been made for them
in some legal papers.
Mr. Piicg was very fond of
animals, and kept two horses and
a Belgian Police dog there all the
time. One of the horses was hi
pt isonal saddle horse and the
other was one ho bought to get
away from a person who had
been mistreating the horse- .
Mr. I 'avis spent 'much time
with Mr. Price' during th,, pa-t
summer, and often took rides
with him over the trail-; mi the
Mr. Price -taye.i, .alone m
the cabin for a long time, but
his wife finally persuaded him
to get someone to sleep there
with him." Mr- Davis stated.
