McPEEK, CHESTER ROSE & TWIN BROTHER
On Thursday morning at three a.m. at the residence of A. F. McPeek, a most memorable record in the history of our county can be recorded, being the birth of two fine boys, weighing in the same notch, six pounds each, and so near alike that Ferrin cannot tell which is which. This in itself should at least partially atone for his defeat last fall. Few can boast of such a prize. Many have called to see the little fellows and we will miss our guess if hundreds do not call before the boys are thirty days old. Later: On Monday evening one of the little twins died and was buried Tuesday p.m. at the Maud cemetery, Rev. Mathis officiating. The sympathy of the entire neighborhood is tendered the bereaved parents through these columns.

SAPPINGTON, INFANT SON
A son was born to Mr. and Mrs. J. K. Sappington last Thursday, it being their first born, but sad to relate the little one remained with them but a shor ttime, its spirit returning on the same day to the God who gave it and on the following day its little body was consigned to "the bosom of mother earth" in Maud cemetery, Rural township. The parents have the sympathy of their friends in their first real family sorrow.
