Presented His Wife With a Coffin
J. A. Cowles of Beloit, Wis., aged ninety two years, has presented his wife with a coffin made by himself as a present on her eighty-ninth birthday. The couple have been married seventy years. Mr. Cowles takes great pride in his unique gift, and says that while he hopes and expects both will live yet some time, nature’s demand must before long be complied with, and a coffin will be necessary. It is about all they need now. The couple are fairly well off and in good health.—Chicago Tribune.
