—Otter Tail, one of the frontier counties of Minnesota, bids fair to rival the Rotunda Hospital or the Allgemeine Krankenhaus of Vienna as a resort for aspirants for obstetrical advantages and greatness. Dr. T. G. Hutton, of Fergus Falls, writes us that there are now in that county living quadruplets one week old, living triplets eight months old, living twins born of a 16-year old mother, and a child 12 months old whose mother is now only 14½ years old. It may be added, for the benefit of those who may hesitate between Vienna and Otter Tail Co., that the latter place is just as accessible as Vienna, and the cost of living is less. The only reasonable objection to the frontier county is that the vernacular is English; nevertheless, it contains, we believe, a large number of Germans.
