Burr Oak Acorn
Congratulations A. H.
The "stork" was so busy everywhere,
Leaving a little one here and there:
Some at dawn or break of day,
Some at noon in the sun's hot ray.
As he flew north at break of day,
On June 27th 1908 so they say.
He found Sherman a fair spot
And an eight pound girl chose to drop
At the home of A.H. Finney and
Myrtle as well.
And the babe's fair name I fain would tell.
Katherine Dorcas, the name so true
Long life and happiness we wish you.

Master Charles Stearns is a new arrival in Burr Oak, Mr and Mrs O. J. Upham having taken him. His father, a civil engineer of great ability, died and his mother was unable to care for him as she wished. By a lucky reading of a certain news item in The Acorn, Master Charles found a father and mother in Mr and Mrs Upham, and to say that he likes his new home is putting it mildly, as he says he never wants to leave them. He is an unusually bright and winsome child and promises to develop into a strong and brillian man.
