One of those never-to-be-forgotten events occurred at our home Wednesday evening, March 31st. It being the fifth anniversary of our wedding day. Hearing a gentle tap at the door, we opened, and to our great surprise one after another of our friends and relatives came in, until our little house was filled to overflowing. After a measure of quiet was restored Mr. C. B. Roe in behalf of our friends, presented us a beautiful couch and numerous other articles. Then the well filled baskets did ample justice to 73 hungry persons. After enjoying themselves as best they could, each took their departure for their respective homes. To each we extended our heartfelt thanks and wish them a happy future.



. . . Wooden and tin weddings are all the rage. Mr. and Mrs. R. L. Beaver celebrated their tin wedding on the eve of the 26th of March and were made the recipients of many useful presents. The wooden wedding of Mr. and Mrs. A. Sargent celebrated March 31st was a very enjoyable time. . .
