The Empire belt of black velvet
ribbon with two bows in back is the
only excuse for calling it a dress. It's
made of pink and blue gingham. The
sunbonne is blue; the school bag
white and blue wicker.
The only living quadruplet girls in
the world are the daughters ,of Mrs.
F. M. Keys of Hollis, Okla. They
were born June 4, 1915. The Jour

after birth the lightest weighed 14
pounds and the heaviest 16 pounds.
