HIS BEARD 13 FEET LONG
Ohioan Who Refused Offer to Travel With Circus is Dead.
     LONDON, O., Dec. 28 - (AP) - The death a few days ago of Albert MOREHEAD, octogenarian, marked the passing of the longest beard in this section of the country.
     Due to MOREHEAD's habit of clipping the outer portion of the facial growth so it resembled the ordinary get of chin whiskers and coiling the remainder of it within his shirt, its true length was never known.
     However, it was estimated to have been from ten to thirteen feet long.  He refused a number of offers to travel with circuses.
     MOREHEAD came to London from Perry county in 1886.
