What an interesting birth announcement

I had to read this entry three times before I realized it was a birth announcement! How clever.

From the Sept 13, 1889 issue…
“On Thursday night of last week three strangers entered the city, two of which in about 21 years cast the Democratic vote, while the other a girl will perhaps be the mother of a Democratic boy. Messrs. W. H. Hampton and W. W. Scarboro can now sing “ain’t it nice to be the papa of a bouncing baby boy,” while Mr. W. D. Carstarphen has the pleasure of the sweet smiles of a little girl.” (article info)
