America's smallest living baby


— May 30, 1923

Pat Cullen of Steamboat Springs claims the honor of being the grandfather of the smallest living baby in the United States. It is a son of Mr. and Mrs. Reuben Squire of Brookston. When it was born Sunday it weighed only 1.5 pounds. Despite this fact, it is thriving and bids fair to become a healthy child. Mrs. Squire is doing nicely.

New charm for spring

Work was started today upon the improvements at the sulphur spring, which should result in its becoming even more popular for tourists and home people.

The spaces between them are to be provided for those who wish to linger for a while and enjoy the charm of watching the madly bubbling surface of the pool of mineralized water.
