On the 12inst., the wife of Mr. John R. Time, of Fenelon Falls, of triplet daughters, all girls.

Something less than a year has elapsed since we chronicled the marriage of Mr. John R. Time and Miss Nina Clock. Happy as was that event, we believe it has been eclipsed, as seen from the above notice, by Mrs. Time presenting her husband with three PURE GOLD ALARM CLOCKS.

As a rule there is always a loud sounding of trumpets, beating of drums, clashing of cymbals, hoisting of flags, and a big parade generally, on the advent of the first-born. Now that Mr. Time is the happy father of THREE, a great deal is expected of him in the way of demonstrating to the world at large the precise state of his feelings along this line.

It would be quite natural, although very improper, for him to have a big blow-out with his old bachelor friends; or if he does not wish to show a bad example in his own person to his large family, he might donate $10,000 to found a home for stray cats, or add another $5,000 to that amount and present a granite skating rink to Fenelon Falls.

What he really will do, to work off his excess of feeling, remains to be seen, as he has not yet regained consciousness from the effects of the heavy shock, occasioned by the three alarms rousing him from his peaceful slumbers at a very unchristian hour on the 12th inst., nor is it probable he will be in a fit state for some days to concentrate his scattered thoughts on any definite mode of procedure. However, he is in duty bound to do something on a large scale, in fact he can present no excuse that will let him out, since the Times have so improved during the past year.

One thing that Mr. Time should be truly thankful for is that Christmas and New Years are so close at hand that might "shake" with Santa Claus for old acquaintance's sake, and give hearty greetings to the year that will be younger sister to his beauties three, and he will undoubtedly avail himself of the grandest opportunity of his life to enable his firstlings to form a good opinion of their pa by investment in a gold watch and chain for each of them, and presenting them in the name of the old, old saint who is so dear to every child's heart.

He should also assist the good doctor in bringing his better half along "as well as can be expected" towards her usual state of good health, in raising her spirits, by shewing that although married to her he can still buy her as handsome and valuable jewellery as before he took for B or W. We might remind him that a town clock would prove a boon to the place, and should he decide to show forth his joy in this manner, generations yet unborn will laud him to the skies and speak of him as the happy papa who made all purchases of watches, clocks, jewellery, silverware, and in fact everything kept in a first-class jewellery establishment from R. J. Frost, 'The Jeweller," Opposite the Post-office, Fenelon Falls.
