Saunders Twins Celebrate

From the November 2, 1911 Skidmore New Era (Skidmore, Missouri), page 1:

Celebrated Birthday With Twin Sister.

S. Saunders, who has been spending the summer with relatives in Montana, started home a few days ago and on his way back stopped off in western Nebraska for a short visit with his twin sister, Mrs. Susie Case, who was visiting her sons, James, Rafe and Loren Case, near Gordon.

October 17 being the birthday of Mr. Saunders and Mrs. Case, Mrs. R. Case, at whose home they both were at the time, gave them a big dinner in honor of the event.

The next day or so they were all invited to the home of Mr. and Mrs. James Case.  Here again the mother and uncle, twin brother and sister, were reminded that they had just passed another mile post.  When the evening meal was served the table center was a mammoth cake bearing in brilliant colors the figures “69.”  On the outer edge, resting on large candy hearts, set sixty-nine lighted wax candles of almost every hue and color.  This taken altogether, made a most beautiful sight.
