and Chestnut Hill and Rey. Landis is minister tf the Lutheran Church of the Redeemer and also the Church of the Ascension in Lancaster. Both ministers drew the same salary and their wives weremuch together. Last Sunday the stork fluttered over the home of Rev. Yerger. The minister met a nurse .at the door of Mrs. Yerger's beufchamber 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 the mothers and the boys in honor of the proud fath ers. o o WISE WILLIE Willie Uncle, why did the egg spoon? Uncle Eh?
