HAD TWENTY-FIVE BABIES.
Sim. Hwiirtwood, Mnrrlcil 27 Yeum,
Mrs. Samuel Swartwood of Wllkes
bnrro, Pa., Is the mother of the largest
family In the United States. Although
a comparatively young woman, be,ng
only -11 years old, she Is the mother of
twenty-live children, twenty or whom
are living. The youngest Ih only a few
weeks old, and gives promise of being,
l.ko 1i!h brothers an.l h ati r.i, h.ilj and
Mrs. Swartwood Is a lemnikahly well
preserved woman. She was married
when very young, and her Urst baby
was born fourteen mollis after her
marriage. There have V-n but live
yeara since during which the house
hold has failed to be blessed with a
baby. These years were 1871, 18SI5,
18S7, 1888. and 181)0. Hut two of them
were In huccch-.Ioii, ami In the succeed
ing years twins were born.
Of the entire twenty-live children
there were but the two Hots of twins,
which weie born lu 188U and 1803. One
of each set of twins Is dead. .Mrs
Swartwood can recite the hour and day
each child was born.
Itcgardlng her married life, Mrs.
Swartwood talked freely. "I was mar
ried when I was M yeara old. I loved
Will when I was a girl and I wanted to
be married. Hver since we have been
very happy, and 1 would not change
places with any rich woman. Look at
thesechlldicn! Ain't they riches enough,
and every one living at home except
the two girls that got married. It's
nice for father and me to have them all
here, although It does crowd us a b t.
We havent got a big house, as you can
see. and every bit of the space is used.
Walk Into the dining-room there and
look at the table."
It was a table to look at, of generous
w!d.h at.d very long. It bore plates and
knives and forks for twenty-two people
At Intervals were great piles of bread.
"It keeps mo and the girls pretty
busy looking nf.er the eat ng and
washing for our big family," resumed
Mrs. Swartwood when I came out of
the dining-room. "Father makes al out
$70 a month, and the boys bring in
about 500 a mouth, nnd while we get
along nicely we have nothing to spare.
We've given all the children as good
schooling as they can got around here."
"What do you think of married life?"
I ventured to ask.
"Well, I ought to know. I guess. Who
wns It sa'd mnirlcd life wns one long,
bweet dream? (.rover Cleveland,
wasn't It? Well, 1 agree with him. It
has been to me. Every woman should
get married, I think. 1 don't know
much about the new woman, but If she
don't believe lu mnrrled life I don't
.want to know nuytblng nbout her.
What's as haypy as having children to
love you nnd you loving them?
"None of my children has been n
source of grlef.trouble. or anxiety to
me. nnd I think fltyl has been especially
kind to give nie so tVany. Yes. sir, you
can put me down a believing In the
