Tuesday the telegraph wires were loaded down with a message from Merrill announcing that a thirteen pound boy had arrived at the home of Dr. and Mrs. P. E. Kabel that morning. Henry Rollmann was made a grandfather by the arrival of the boy and the man did not have a smoke at his expense, Tuesday was one whom he failed to see. He was by far the happiest man in the city and acted as though he was stockholder in the Atlantic Cable. Grandma Rollmann took the train to Merrill, Wednesday to visit the grandson.
