Decatur County Journal
April 7, l892

Over one hundred elegantly printed invitations were issued to the
friends of MR. and MRS. J. HOFFHINES, soliciting them to be present on
the first of April at their home, and at about 8 o'clock in the evening
their lovely home was filled to overflowing, although the wind blew a
perfect gale.

The guests were received by MR. and MRS. HOFFHINES; MRS. MCCULLOUGH and
MISS AMIE.  MR. and MRS. HOFFHINES looked as happy and almost young
enough for it to be their wedding day instead of their twenty-fifth
anniversary.  Father Time has indeed touched them lightly and showered
down upon them many blessings--health, a goodly amount of wealth,
beautiful home and fair daughters.

All went merry as a wedding bell.  At 9 o'clock the guests were summoned
to an elegant repast.  The tables looked lovely--one was yellow and
white, another a pansy table, etc. etc.  On every table was an elegant
center piece and handsome doilies.  The fortunate couple received many
costly and elegant presents, which showed the high esteem in which they
were held by their many friends.
