A son was born to Mr. and Mrs. Clinton Wilson, Monday [July 23]. Clint, although the county expert in tax matters, has crossed his wires in making the family count, for this morning he asserted in the presence of reliable witnesses that his family numbered 10, five boys and each boy had a sister. "Nuf said." Figures won't lie. It is also alleged that Clint told Mrs. Wilson that she might name this boy, but that she must give him the name he selected. The unparalleled generosity of this man is only equated by the peace terms of the Kaiser. Selah.


Cove--A girl was born to Mr. and Mrs. Walter Dill, July 22.

Little Lillian Anderson, aged 2 years, 9 months and 4 days, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joe Anderson, died at the family home Saturday [July 21] of follicular tonsillitis. The little one made a splendid fight against the disease but without avail. The funeral was held at the Bear Creek church Monday, Rev. A. Holbeck conducting the services, and the remains were laid at rest in the churchyard burying ground. The parents have the deepest sympathy of all in their bereavement.

Mrs. Waymire had just recently returned home to California after making an extended visit here with her parents.
