HOES AT 102 FOR HEALTH
At six o'clock the other morning, in the village of Balaton, Minn., "Grandpa" Shequin, who is one hundred and two years old, was hoeing corn. He has planted corn for ninety-five years. He was not doing the work because of necessity, but because he needed the early morning exercise and the morning air. His wife is still living with him. She is past ninety-two years, and they have lived together nearly seventy five years.
