THE "SIX-TOE HIGGINSES." From the New Orleans Times Democrat: Down in Kimble County, Tex. said a visitor from the Lone Star State, is a remarkable six-toed family, about whom, so far as I know, nothing has ever been told in print. Their name is Higgins, and the family is composed at present of a grandfather, who must be over 90, four middle-aged sons, and a drove of grandchildren, numbering 25 or 30. Old man Higgins, who is culled "Mexican Bill," has six toes on each foot, and his wife, who is now dead, was equally well provided. They were cousins, and all their sons have six toes except one, whose feet turn in, noticeably at the ankle, but are otherwise normal. All the grand- children have at least six toes, and several of them have seven, the extra one being in each case more or less rudimentary, and not developed like the others. I can vouch for this personally, as I have seen the whole tribe on a number of different occasions, and in summer-time they generally run around bare- footed. The Six-toe Higginses' is the name the family is known by among all the neighbours."
