Famous Fables By E.E. Edgar SERVICE A group, of European doctors who were visiting the Mayo Clinic, were invited to spend the night at the home of Dr Charles H. Mayo, co-founder of the medical center. Upon retiring, as their custom, they placed their shoes outside their bedroom doors for polishing. Dr. Mayo, the last to go to bed, noticed the shoes when he went upstairs to his room. It was too late to rouse a servant, and it was unthinkable that he should be inhospitable to his guests. So the doctor gathered up ail the shoes, carried them downstairs to the kitchen and spent half the night polishing them. INSOMNIA: It was a warm day in Washington and Sen. Carter Glass of Virginia was half-listening to a dreary speech delivered by a long-winded member of the club. The Senate chamber was stuffy and heads began to nod. Before long, even-one was dozing, except the Virgi- nian a n d a n e l d e r l y colleague who was seated next to him. Glass turned to the other and murmured sympathetically: "I see you have insomnia, too." Aw / can /o la many ihinft t vat right away.

CITV -STATI ^HEN-RITE AID PHARMACY 4m CHARLESTON, W.VA. Willis Hatfield is alive and well and living in Logan County. Born Feb. 10, 1888, Willis is the last living son of "Devil Anse" Hatfield, famed leader of the clari during their mountain feud with the McCoys in the 1880s and '90s. The day I visited with Willis the temperature was soaring towards 100 degs. and the climb to the Hatfield cemetery at Sarah Ann just about did me in--Willis wasn't even breathing hard when we got to the top. Here, a life-size statute of "Devil Anse" stands on a four-foot granite base. The s t a t u e , modeled f r o m photographs taken after Anse's death, was imported from Italy at a cost of f3,000. The bareheaded and bearded figure, in frock coat and riding leggings, stands stiffly with arms at his sides, gazing into the distance. The b a c k of the base is inscribed: "Captain Anderson Hatfield, 1839-1921. Levicy Chafin, His Wife, 1842-1929"; on the front is this ins c r i p t i o n : " J o h n s o n , William A., Robert L., Nancy, E l l i o t t R., Mary, Elizab.eth, Elias, Troy, Joseph D., Rose, Willis E., Tennis S.. Their Children." Although the outdoor d r a m a , " H a t f i e l d s McCoys," at Grand view State Park (Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays through September 2) ends with the baptism of "Devil Anse," Johnse, and "Cap" (William A.) the patriarch spent the last 15 years of his life quietly and peacefully on the farm he owned on Middle Island Creek in Logan County. He raised hogs and other farm produce and it is said he seldom left the community. Sunday Gazette-Mail
