Birth "Announcements" News

Birth Date Not Known
A young man in Minnesota, who was born in Rooks county, Kansas, wrote to the officials of that county to learn the date of his birth, as his parents did not keep a record and he had forgotten the date. Neither was there any record of the event in the county. The Stockton Record commenting on the neglect say: "If he had been the descendent of an imported horse or a pedigreed bull, or had been born into a litter of Poland China pigs, his birth and autecedents would have been failthfully recorded; but being a human being that duty is left for the recording angel on high to perform. The whole earth does not know when this immortal sould commenced its mundance pilgrimage, unless some faithful newspaper man at Stockton chronicled his arrival."
