Monstrous Baby

Mr. and Mrs. Ellis Burrows, of near Grantsville, are the proud parents of a fine fourteen pound son which arrived Friday night, February the 8th.  This is the twelfth child and possibly the largest ever born in Calhoun Co.  Dr. S.M. Prunty, of Big Springs, was in attendance.  Mother and son are doing nicely.
