Lutheran . charges at Rohrerstown
and Chestnut Hill and Rev. Landis is
minister to' the Lutheran Church of
the Redeemer and also the Church of
the Ascension in .Lancaster. Both
ministers drew the same salary and
their wives were much together.
Last Sunday .the stork fluttered
over the home of Rev. Yerger. The
minister met a nurse at the door of
Mrs. Yerger's bedchamber and the
nurse said: "A fine boy, Dr. Yerger."
The minister was rubbing his hands
gleefully when the nurse reappeared
and exclaimed: "And now a little girl
has come. Beautiful twins, Dr. Yer
ger." That day Rev. Yerger sent the
word of double joy over to his friends,
Rev. and Mrs. Landis. They sent con
gratulations, and, until last Thursday
it appeared that the parallel events in
the lives of the two couples had been
broken. But the stork, a consistent
bird, evened matters up nicely. Early
in the morning of that day Rev. Lan
dis was poised on the threshold of
Mrs. Landis' bedroom when a nurse
appeared. "A fine boy has come for
you, Dr. Landis," she exclaimed and"
quickly retreated back into the room.
Dr. Landis was walking up and down
the floor, rubbing his hands in glee,
when the nurse again appeared at the
door and whispered quickly, "Dr.
Landis, a sweet little girl has come,
too. You have splendid twins."
Of course the baby girls will be
named in honor of tbe mothers ancf
the boys in honor of the proud fathers.
