a the little fellowv wvho was found
,rap~pedl in a Pyllman blanket on the
idle of the railroadl track in Calhoun
a September, 1 91 9, it being suppos
dI that he had been throwvn from a

eremiah Vandiver, section foreman,
oundl the little fellow wvell bundledh
p but almost frozen, and carried
urn up town. Mr. and Mrs. R. P.

myve had him ever~ since, gave him
he name of Patrick Nash Boggs, and
,ouldln't part wvithi him for anything.
While no legal adoption has beeni

Patrick Nash is a fine looking little
Fellow, and while the identity of his

iis intelligent look andh fine features
plainly proclaim him as a child of
fentle people. Now lie is the pride
f Calhoun mid thoy say he is the
