Combined Weight of Its Four Members
Is 805 Pounds
Which is the heaviest family In the
county? Last week the News ventur
ed the assertion that honors might be
long to the family of A. B. Billings of
the Upper Valley, whose three mem
bers show an average weight of 191
pounds. Another aspirant for honors
in this line now appears in the person
of 8. W. Arnold, whose family, com
posed of four, boasts an average
weight of 201 pounds. Mr. Arnold tips
the scales at 240: his son Floyd, at 220;
Clyde at 175, and Mrs. Arnold at 170.
Their combined weights are therefore
805 pounds or an average of 201.
