"And I tried to do it well." I asked him "which brought him more satisfaction, being a professor or being a cleaning man?" He smiled and said, "It is not fair ask me a question like that. I think I would have to say that every age in life has its own rewards. I am still looking ahead." The sixty-five year-old man said,"I do not want to die. There is too much fun in the world and a lot of good folks, a lot of them ,and good books to read, and fish to catch ,and pretty women to look at ,and good man to know.why ,life is a joy." Charles Crownd also visit pilot town of Louisiana , near the mouth of Mississippi River.. All the houses there are built on the thick wooden legs, so that they would not be washed the away when river floods .The community can be reached only by boat or sea plane. That is where he met Andy Spire. Andy Spire was a hunter and fisherman . He read books written in the Greek language and for ten years he was the only teacher in a one-room school. "Why did he stay in such a lonely place?" "Well."he said ," they have trouble getting teachers to living here. Somebody has to teach the children." As they continued driving across the United States looking for interesting stories, the other road team found a green mill on the little river in the state of Maryland .The man who operated the mill was Captain Frank Langrill. He was eighty-one years old. The Winchester mill grind corn for settlers in 1681. A hundred years later, it grind corn for the army of General George Washington. During American's war for independence from Britain ,and it was still grinding corn almost two hundred years after that. It must have been the oldest continuously business in the country .Yet the mill did't interest me as much as the miller. He had be working beside his mill stone for sixty-five years."Was he tired of the job?" "Yes". Frank Languill said ,"Yes, there really is no confidence any more. But these farmers depend on me, you see. There is no other place around here to grind their corn. In professor John Franklin Smith,teacher Under Sparaw,and miller Frank Langruill ,I saw American's assort I have never known before. They were linked to the places where they lived and they worked not so much for themselves.
