I. est you forget, "If It happened you
will find it correctly told iu the Chief,
wo call to mind the dilllculty exper
ienced by our cnutcmporuirles, lu do-v
terming tho gender of some of tho
packages recently left by the stork, lit
prominent homes iu this elty. A few
weeks ao Mr. and Mrs. Will Koon
became tho proud parents of u babj
boy. The Com-Ad. in its next issue
made due meiitlened of the same, even
giving tho gender collect ly. The
Aruus announced the event, but be
came :i trllle confused as to tho gender,
saying, "her" for "ho" This caused
Editor Hosmer to become mixed, and
ho proceeded with duo dlligenco to an
nounce iu his next issue, ho had made
a mistake, (altho he had not,) and that
the new arrival was of tho gentler sex.
However, before many days elapsed he
learned of his, mistake, and the fact
that ho was correct the first time, and
in the next issuo he again-told the
anxious publlu of his erjor. Then last
week a baby glil arrived at tho home
of Mr. and Mr.s. Carl Hedge, which
f.ict we were pleased to annouueo in
ohr last Issue, but on reading over
tho exchanges, note thut tho Argus
contained two locals, bothjn the same
column, one sajing, "it was a boy ' the
other, "it was a girl." Whether this
was just mi oversight, u question of
not knowing which, and wishing to
play safe, or whether it was due to
tho editor's inability to distinguished
between the masculine and feminine,
we are tillable to state, but should this
bo tho case, cannot help but note the
great amount of grief which would bo
spared, could tho stork bo prevailed
upon to label each package. ,
