City of Wellington, Sumner County, Kansas
"A couple came from Ohio, arriving in Leavenworth
a few days since, and were married about noon. At
8 o'clock in the evening a bouncing boy weighing
ten and a half pounds, was born to the blooming
bride of less than ten hours. This is only another
evidence of the fertility of Kansas, and a proof
that the drought is not so general and fatal in
its effects as some of our eastern friends suppose."
