He ate with a ferocity unchallenged by anyone.

Old Man Jahose - who always had a hearing horn - seen every day looking in the alleys for something while constantly mumbling, one day disappeared. Then finally after three weeks the town mayor found him.

One day he dug a hole. He was seen jumping in and out of it, three hours a day for about 4 or 5 weeks. Then he covered it up. When asked why he was never seen entering a building, he merely grumbled some unintelligable, perhaps obscene comment and continued on his quest; which at the time was beyond everyone. I said to myself: "If Old Man Jahose was born a million years ago, he would be dead by now."
