On the evening of Friday, Sept. 9th, a very pleasant and well planned surprise was completed when a host of their friends and relatives to the number of about 160 met at the very pleasant farm home of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Brown in Orleans township, to assist them in commemorating the event of their 25th wedding anniversary, which occurred on the following day, September the 10th.
During the evening, in a few well chosen words in behalf of the company, Hon. D. A. Lyons presented this estimable couple with a very nice writing desk and chair, a large arm chair and a set of solid silver spoons.
