Yesterday was MRS. EMMA MULLINIX' 7lst birthday and she celebrated the occasion by inviting the hungry editor of the Advocate and his wife to eat dinner with her. The editor has known "Mother Mullinix" every since we can remember and she has tied up many a sore finger and helped us out of many a boyish "scrape" and although old in years, MRS. MULLINIX is as jolly and young in actions as she was twenty years ago. Another kind deed of the good lady on this day, was to send a dainty dinner to Mrs. A.C. Sanford, who has been confined to her home most of the winter.
