children ten pairs of twins, and that
each one in the family intended to
take up a homestead. Winn she

foot, iind declared that they were
going to continue the journey all the
way across the continent to Oregon
on foot, if possible, otherwise, to
walk as far as possible and then buy
mules to complete the trip. She asks
for any information obtainable about
this unusually large family.

Now it is reported that the Modocs
