Golden Wedding

Mr. and Mrs. D.M. Harkins

     Mr. and Mrs. D.M. Harkins celebrated their fiftieth year of wedded life Sept. 5 at their home at Ewington. A large number of relatives were present, among them their seven married daughters, five grandchildren and one great grandchild. At the noon hour a chicken dinner was served. The table was beautifully decorated, yellow and white being the color scheme. A large bowl of mammoth yellow and white cut flowers formed the centerpiece, while yellow candles in crystal holders were placed at each corner.
     Mr. and Mrs. Harkins were presented a handsome gift by the guests, which was greatly appreciated. At a late hour all departed for their homes wishing them many more happy anniversaries.
