JUST A SPECIMEN: Many strange and wonderful things happened on the Darwin Downer farm, near Chelsea, last week and the view above is just a sample - just a smidgin, as the boys say - of what went on. Mr. Downer is shown holding one set of the six sets of lamb triplets which were born during the tremendous re-storking of his sheep herd. Six sets of lamb triplets are a lot of potential chops, but they only constituted only the first paragraph of the story. There were also 102 sets of twins. Mrs. Dionne, the thing seems to be catching.
