We were in error last week in stating that the boy (Merrill) of Mr. and Mrs. Ben. Stanley was born Wednesday, Feb. 26.  He was born a day later, Thursday, Feb. 27.  We make this correction so the little fellow won't be celebrating the wrong day next year and thereafter.  Greenwood Gleaner, 7 Mar 1902.
