Last Saturday was the twenty-fifty wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. George McClelland COUCH, well known in McDonald, who now reside on the John STERLING farm in Cherry Valley. Their relatives and friends here to the number of forty drove over in two wagons and with a score from other points tried, to take them by surprise. The grand old-fashioned turkey supper that was served at nine o'clock was grounds for the belief that the surprise was not complete. But no disappointment was felt as the palatable viands reconciled all, and the social hours that followed left nothing to wish for. A handsome silver tea set was presented to the hostess and the host was the recipient of a luxurious leather armchair. The presentations were made by Robert J. COOK, burgess of McDonald, who also led the dancing by himself doing an Irish Jig to perfection. Many of the older guests forgot for the time being the weight of years and were boys and girls again as they entered the merry maze and tripped the fantastic toe once more. Much fun was had enroute when one of the horses balked and the passengers had to get out and push the wagon to the top of Gamble WINTERS' hill. Squire COCHRAN is authority for the statement that the wife of a prominent McDonald tailor is a most capable equestrienne. The evening was one of great pleasure and much merriment.

At the home of Mr. and Mrs. A. R. BURNS, northeast of the city, one
of the events which mark the bright spots along life's pathway, the
fortieth anniversary of their wedding, was observed October 17. For some
time past the word was secretly passed around among the relatives and
many friends of the couple by Miss Margaret BURNS and Mrs. Robert BURNS,
requesting those told of the event to be present as a complete surprise.
The day was perfect in its autumnal beauty. Some twenty relatives from
Fairfield came in carriages to an appointed meeting place, from where,
with those in waiting, they drove to the BURNS home in a body. After the
congratulations were over, thirty-three persons sat down to a grand
spread at a number of tables that had been prepared unknown to the
honored couple. Four of the guests were present at the wedding, forty
years ago. They were: Mrs. Anna B. LEWIS, Messrs. W. C. and G. W. BALL,
sister and brothers of the bride, and Mrs. Margaret MCCANDLESS of Orien,
Ill., a sister of the groom. Among the gifts presented were forty silver
dollars, representing the years of married life. The presentation speech
was made by Hon. George BALL. Miss Cora BALL read a large number of
letters and messages from relatives in Pennsylvania, West Virginia and
Canada. A musical entertainment followed this, after which Miss Mary L.
STEVER took snap shots of the company.
