In the back woods of Arkansas, Mr. Stewart’s wife goes into labor in the middle of the night, and the doctor is called out to assist in the delivery.
To keep the nervous father-to-be busy, the doctor hands him a lantern and says, “Here, you hold this high so I can see what I’m doing.”
Soon, a wee baby boy was brought into the world. “Whoa, there Scotty!” says the doctor. “Don’t be in a rush to put the lantern down… I think there’s yet another wee one to come.”
Sure enough, within minutes he had delivered another little baby.
“No, no, don’t be in a great hurry to be putting down that lantern, young man… It seems there’s yet another one besides!” cried the doctor.
The new father scratched his head in bewilderment, and asked the doctor:
“Do ya think it’s the light that’s attractin’ them?”
