A Most Unusual Birth Announcement

Coming out of Blue Hill Township gossip columns in the Sherburne County Star News, the correspondent outdid themselves in writing this creative birth announcement: 

A very young man arrived at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Ed Kahlier last week.  He will remain indefinitely, presumably until he is twenty one years of age should he live. 

Published in the March 7, 1901 issue of the newspaper, this announcement covers the full range of emotions.  From birth to death, from joy to sorrow, this brief message suggests so many possibilities in a young man’s life.
