SOME BIG BOY Hig Stone Cap has some big buy ill tin; person of Harry Masters who will I be M yeari old on the 2-lth of next October. He is just IS feet tall and weighs 196 pounds in his shirt sleeves. From this it will be seen that in mere flesh he is not out of the ordinary, having hone structure to match. He bus just passed into the 7th grammar ! grade in the public school w hich j would indicate that he is alright in? tellectually. He must be a normal boy in every way because he likes the swimming hole und dislikes to work in the gar? den; but hill mother makes him do it just the same as though he were small. And besides he hates to leave the bed or the table as bud as the average boy possibly could. His size was not above tile average until his; tonsils and adenoids were removed some three years ago fol? lowing which, his growth has been phenomenal. He is the sou of Sherman Masters, the well known blacksmith, who stands ? feet ? and weighs 236,while Mrs. Masters, the mother, is 0 feet, and draws down the scales to 200. If the boy's growth continues for the next sever, years as rapid us it has been in the three years past he will be able to qualify for entrance to the Babe Bates class.?Independent.
