      EIGHT CHILDREN IN EIGHT YEARS

      Is Record of Young Curdsville Couple.

      Among them are three sets of twins -- Four Boys and Four Girls

      If All People Followed Their Example Owensboro Would Extend From Hardinsburg to Henderson.

      Whether there is race suicide in process of perpetration in this country or whether there is not, there is a young couple in Daviess county, eight years married and parents of eight children. If their example were followed by all the people in Daviess county this section would shortly be such a city that Main street would extend from Hardinsburg to Henderson. It would be a city that could furnish wives for the womanless of the West and soldiers for the armies of the world.

      These young people are Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Hayden of the Curdsville neighborhood. Mr. Hayden is the son of Mr. and Mrs. J. S. Hayden, his wife was, before her marriage, Miss Fannie Newton. Both are members of well known and highly respected families. Mr. Hayden is a farmer by occupation and is prosperous.

      Of their children four are boys and four are girls. Among them there are three pairs of twins. The first was a boy, then came twins, then a girl and then came twins again, two boys. Saturday, on the eighth anniversary of their marriage, a third pair of twins came, bringing the total number of children to eight. The latest twins are girls.

      Mr. Hayden is thirty-three years old and weighs 125 pounds. His wife is twenty-nine years old and weighs 150 pounds.

      This record has probably never been surpassed in Daviess county. There is a case on record of a couple in this same section of the county who had five children in a year—but this was maintained for only one year. It was nearly forty years ago. In January, twins were born to them, and in December of the same year triplets were born. But Mr. and Mrs. Hayden have the record for recent years.

      The father of Mr. Hayden brought the news of the birth of the latest pair of twins to Owensboro yesterday afternoon.

      YOUNG FARMER DIES

      And Leaves a Widow and Eight Children

      Clarence Hayden died of heart trouble at 1 o'clock Saturday afternoon at his home at Rome, after an illness of several months. His death, while sudden, was not unexpected. He had been in poor health for some time. Mr. Hayden was twenty-eight years old and a respected farmer of the Rome section. His wife, who was before her marriage Miss Newton, survives him, with eight children. The funeral will take place at 9 o'clock Sunday morning from St. Raphael's church. The interment will be in the church cemetery.
