Pittsburgh.Accompanied by hit
wife and twenty-four children, Alexan-!
der Friss, a backwodsman living five
miles from Wind Gap. twenty miles
from here, drove into town to do
some shopping. It was the first visit
of the children to the city and they
were awe-struck by the high build
ings and the crowds.
When the three wagons passed
along Fifth avenue the crowds ol
shoppers were as much surprised at
the sight of the Friss family a& were
the latter at them. Contented and
happy, the big family pulled up in
front of one of the largest department
stores and filed inside, where they
soon got busy. They missed nothing,
from the cellar of the big store to the
top floor, purchasing enough trinkets
to stock a country store.
Even th6ugh the Friss family cloth
ing was not in harmony with the lat
est dictates of style, they never bat
ted an eye when the laughing crowds
stared at them. The big family had
come to see the sights, and they got
a vast amount of pleasure out of the
trip. Friss was in a joyous mood,
and laughed when asked how often he
came to the city to purchase presents.
"Not often," said he, "and it'sin
mighty lucky for me that I don't. I
had a big hog-killing over at the
house a couple of weeks ago and I
told the boys and girls and Martha
that's my wife^that we would go to
town and spend the money for that
hog meat on good things."
Mrs. Friss is 64 years old, while
her husband is four years her junior.
They were married when the husband
was 17. Friss naively remarked that
after his marriage the 'childera'
came thick and fast." Mrs. Friss has
given birth to twenty-seven children,
all told, three of whom are dead. The
first time it was twins, the next oc
casion saw but one, but the following
four events were double productions.
Then came triplets twice in succes
sion. Following th triplets came a
sequence of ten single Frisses. Friss
