Mrs. KIGHTLINGER was married when only 13 years old, and was a grandmother before reaching her 21st year.
Mr. and Mrs. KIGHTLINGER sent out invitations to 250 of their friends to
celebrate with them their silver anniversary on the 2*th inst., at their
home on the REED farm four miles southwest of McDonald. The guests began
to arrive at 10 o'clock, many of them coming from Bradford [Pa], New Castle

The Centerview, Mo., Review tells of the celebration of the marriage of Rev. Josiah THOMPSON, who is well known to all of the old residents of this section. "Today, Oct. 14th, is the 51st anniversary of the marriage of the Rev. and Mrs. Josiah THOMPSON, who reside about a mile from town. The day also marks the 42d anniversary of his entrance into the ministry of the Presbyterian Church. Mrs. THOMPSON has been a helpless invalid for five years. Of their four children, the eldest son lives in Philadelphia, Mrs. Ella BLAIR, a widow, lives with her parents, John A., is Republican candidate for County Collector, and one son died in childhood. No man perhaps in the County is better known than Mr. THOMPSON. He came to the County when Centerview was unknown; he built a church near town, which has since been bought and used by the colored people. Mr. THOMPSON has reached his four score years, but one would never guess his age by his appearance, as he is in the best of health. His days have been spent in doing good, and the reward of the good awaits him."
