Lexington, Kentucky,—John Shell
who is 130 years old, will go Chicago
on Dec. 15 to let the mostprominent
phys ician in the state examine him
and see if they can find out why he
has lived so long. He has received an
invation to make the trip from the
Illinois State Medical Society.

work through life and no worry."
He says he drinks whisky when he
can get it and that he eats every
thing he can get hold of. Shell has a
daughter, 90, who livesnear him, and

and hedged in by state and national
laws, it depending upon the form of
organization, bankers must exercise
judgement and caution at all times
Therefore it is frequently necessary
