    "Dr. D. W. Loree, of Ridgeway, telephones to this office the birth of a son to Mr. and Mrs. Roy Harrison, of Ridgeway. The child was born Sunday night just as the midnight bells chimed in the New Year, and the Ridgeway friends assume that it was the only child born in Michigan at the birth of the New Year."
