The cou sins are eighties. well along in their Trio Phillips brothers were born in Pennsylvania, as well as a brother Joel, deceased, who lived in Kansas. The lads came here with their family at an early age. Monroe married Olla Green, Gilman, who died at the age of 52 in 1925.

Luckily, most of my news items had been prepared. Otherwise there would have been a shortage of locals. And after the phone went dead, there were more people it seemed imperative to call. Then at ten o'clock that evening, a welcome ring came and the nurse who was in my room answerer for me and when she heard man's voice asking if this wa Evelyn Cady, she thought it wa a gag. I assured her it was th real McCoy and most welcome. AI the disruption was caused by cable cutting. I got to thinkinj iow important the telephone is and how isolated we are withou hem.

He is one of the sweetest, cutest little fellows you ever met — sunny and friendly and handsome. We expect this little man to be a pianist and he is living up to expectations. If you could see him sitting in the corner of an arm chair, a wee piano across his lap and see him bang the keys, blink his eyes at every whang, and singing along with it, you'd know very well he Is going to live up to the Cad) tradition.
