MR. and MRS. JOHN BRAZELTON celebrated their golden wedding, October 28 at their home at garden Grove. A number of the invited guests could not be present on account of the bad condition of the roads. The most remarkable feature of the occasion was the presence of four of the number who attended their wedding fifty years ago. They were Mrs. S.H. Briley, Mrs. BRAZELTON's mother, who has reached the advanced age of 88 years; George Speathe, who performed the wedding ceremony; Mrs. Ben Mathews and Mrs. Harden Lillard, sisters of MRS. BRAZELTON. Each guest brought useful presents, which were gratefully received and especially the beautiful bouquet of golden chrysanthemums and ferns sent by the O.E.S. All join in wishing this worthy couple many pleasures through their declining years, as they have been favored with during their long and prosperous life together.
