CHRIST ~ DAUGHTER
Sam Crist is not blind: Some people may have thought so last Wednesday, when they saw Sam walking, as it were, in air, and only striking the very highest places, in his aerial perambulations. But to the populace it was only a mental or optical delusion. The arrival of a daughter at his home explains all, Regulation weight, mother doing well, and physician expresses great hope for Sam's final return to a normal condition.
