Mrs. Robert Woodward Gives Birth
to Two Girls and a Boy.

Triplets, two girls and a boy, were born to Mr. and Mrs. Robert Woodward, 903 Orville avenue, Kansas City, Kas., yesterday morning. The babies are perfectly formed and are pronounced unusually healthy and robust by Dr. E. A. Reeves, the attending physician. Mrs. Woodward, mother of he new arrivals, is getting along nicely. The doctor states that she is strong and her condition is not at all dangerous. She is 35 years old, and besides the triplets has three other children.

The total weight of the three babies at birth was sixteen pounds, the girls tipping the scales at six pounds each, the boy bringing up the other four pounds.

Robert Woodward, the father, is associated with the Carr Manufacturing Company of Kansas City, Mo., and was in Slater, Mo., when notified of the increase in his family. He lost no time in getting home. If the boy lives he may be christened Patrick, in honor of the day on which he came into the world.

The Woodward babies are the second set of triplets born in Kansas City, Kas., in less than a year and a half. On December 22 1907, two boys and a girl were born to Mr. and Mrs. William Curry. The mother died the following month, and was followed a short time later by two of the babies. Boaz, the first born, is still alive and is enjoying the best of health.
