GOLDEN WEDDING GELEBRATION.
MR. AND MRS. ROBERT HAYNE MIMS CELEBRA
TED THE FIFTIETH .ANNIVERSARY OF
THEIR MARRIAGE AT THEIR AN
CESTRAL HOME IN
The most interesting, novel, and suggestive event of the sea.-son,
or of many seasons, took place on Mouday evening last at the homo
of Mr. and Mrs. R. H. Mims, when this esteemed and v momble pair
celebrated, what few mortals are permitted to enjoy, their fiftieth
wedding anniversary. No like event, save one, has ever tekeu place in
Edgefield in the memory of any now living among un, and it is fit
ting that the return of such a day should be observed, especially
when the participants have been so useful to the community iu which
this half century has been spent. Mr. Mime holds the unique place
of being the only man in Edgefield who waa bom and has livtd con
tinually in the same house, since his birth.
At eight o'clock the procession of more than a hundred guests
began to gather at this historic home, and an evening of unprecedent
ed enjoyment v/as begun. The first object which struck the eye upon
entering were the beautiful decorations, which as was remarked, none
but an arti it could have arranged. The colors were gold and white,
the flowers yellow chryflanthemums and daffodils. Suspended in the
centre of the drawing room was a large yell JW bell, and the profuse
hangings of Southern Smilax extending from the centre to the four
corners of the room were hung with smaller golden bells at close in
tervals. The adjoining reception room waR adorned with similar-ap
propriate emblems of the occasion, but varied. Over each doorway in
gold letters were the notable dates of 1855 and 1905.
Music, that heavenly art, gave continual delight and "all went
merrily as a marriage bell." The bride and groom of fifty years were
the gayest among the gay,combinine?in themselves the?virtues both of
youth and age. Of the bridesmaids and groomsmen who attended the
-marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Minis, six are still living. Messrs. Eras
mus Mime, Erasmus Youngblood, John T. Nicholson, Dr. Walter
Nicholson, Mrs. L. R. Gwaltney, and Mrs. Julia Talbert. Of these
only Mr. John T. Nicholson was present on Monday evening. The
only other person present who was a guest at the marriage of fifty
years ago was Mrs. Emma Blocker who was a little girl al that tim?.
A table holding the remains of gifts and mementoes of the mar
riage, attracted much interested attention. On it were the white kid
slippers worn by the bride, and a aa)all glass bottle containing th"
remains of some of the wedding fruit cake. The daguerreotypes, one
?f Mr. Mims and one of Mn?. Mims brought back again time in itt?
flight and delineated their faces as fair and youthful. A silver Init
ier knife, card case, cup and forks were all that remained in 19?5 ol
a handsome array of gifts presented in 1855.
On the tabina containing the manifestations of esteem and love
presented on this fiftieth anniversary were the following:
Kev. T? D. D. Clark, Manassas, V?,, a book of his own poems; Kev C.
E. Burts, Thomas a Kempis' "Imitation of Christ"; Dr. and Mra. Manly

Parker, gold pen ; Mr.and Mrs H A Wohinan, Columbia, vase and fluwers;
Dr and Mrs R A Marsh, berry bowl. The very handsome candelabra from
Mrs Elizabeth M Betlis was especially admired.
The evening's pleasuro was greatly enhanced by a short but de
lightful programme. It was announced by Rev. C. E Burts that the
Edgefield ADVERTISER iu 1855 was edited by Col. Arthur Simkins,
and that the lines dedicated to Mrs. Mims, a bride, iu the issue suc
ceeding her marriage were to be read by the present editor of thi
^ADVERTISER, a nephew of Mr. Mims. They were as follows:
-Twas Isabelle .
Who "stood beside the altar," like a dove,
Resting her trembling hand upon the arm
Of him, to whom her plighted troth had pass'd.
Together there, they vow'd before high heaven
To "Jive and k ve together" all their day?,
Nor fail in aught that duty, led by Love,
Might prompt them to discharge,
j And now
A friend, who knew the twain, when they were
Records his heart-felt wishes that success.
And happiness, and peace, and bounteous plenty,
May be theirs in time. And for the rest,
That tbe aright coronal, a saint's reward.
May, after time is o'er for them, be placed
Upon the brow of each for ali eternity.
Col. James T. Bacon now introduced Rev. W. T. Huudley, who
r?ad some verses of his own composition, arranged especially for
this oocaBiou, which brought forth successive laughter and tears.
This poem we publish. 0. Sheppard Esq., expressed with eloquence
the gratitude of himself aud all present at the good fortune .of Mr,
and Mrs. Mims in attaining to this auspicious occasion, having jour
neyed together for five decades, through the varied vicissitudes of
?life. Rev. C. E. Burts then introduced Dr. T. M. Bailey, as one of
the few present who had known the bride in her youth and it goes
without Baying that Dr. Bailey did justice to so pleasant a subject.
Without disparagement to others, it waB said that the menu ser
ved was without precedent. The beautiful decorations an:i the artis
tic arrangement of plates, lenta charin to the scene of the repast be
yond meaBureto describe. The occasion indeed was a feast for body,
mind, heart and soul, a nonpareil in the history of Edgefield's so
cial world. May the pure and noble lives of this venerable and hou
or?d pair, grow as do always the righteous, "brighter and brighter
unto the perfect day."
-THE GOLDEN WEDDING- *
FEBRUARY, 27TH, 1005.
In dear old Carolina in the days of long ago,
Before the name of "District" wa9 altered into "Co."
There lived a lad and lassa . so the story goes to tell,
Whose names within the Uible were Robert and Isabelle.
The boys they called him Bob, and the girls they called her Bell?,
Which though not quite so dignified, will answei just as well,
If not a little bettor :-for 'tis eminently meet
That wbat concerns this history should be both short and sweet.
Now Robert he was born a Mims, and Isabelle a Lake,
Both scions of as good old stock as heaven above cot ld make.
For Carolina's boast has been that she could raise with pase,
Not only rice and cotton but the finest, family trees.
Of all the trees within the State old Edgefield grew the best,
Which may be truly said without disparaging the rest.
Among the names to prove it when the census has been taken,
Are Pickens, Butler, Simkins and centenarian Bacon,
For branching off iust.here.kind friends, remember if you please,
It is a proper thing to do, since branches grow on trees.
And if the mention of this fact should deej en the impression
Of what the story has to tell, then welcome the digression.
In Edgefield village Bob was born-a village of renown,
Which in these days of piping peace is called a thriving town.
And here within its precincts f?ir he came to man's estate
Along with other boys whose names are 'mong the good and great.
A country lass was Isabelle. She saw the Mg! t of day
Out in the hills of Edgefield, just over Gilgal way.
The cherried grew upon her lips, the roses in her face,
While in her life the virtues shone, her character to grace.
'Twas in these days of blooming youth, when hearth are wont to throb,
That Bob first fell in love with Belleand Belle in love with Bob.
Be spent his time in drawing hearts and she in playing hymns,
He just a-dying for his Lake, and she for lier dear Mims.
Said Bob, u hen urged in school one day his aim in life to tell,
"The height of my ambition is to learn to ring the Belle."
And when the boys in "jografy" were asked tneir choice to take
Of subjects for compositions, he'd always choose a Lake.
The definition of ibis Lake; the ri 'ging of the Belle
Was not an easy thing for Bob; it taxed him quite a spell.
Through many dangers, toils and snares?.be had his ins and outs,
But won his way to vistor) iii spite of infuiercus rwuts.
The battle fought, the victory wpn," th:i happy lime drew near,
When Bob, to mansions in the sftesj^joirid read his title clear.
The day was duly set apart for .^?t?Ving'cupid's web
'Twas eighteen hundred fifty ?v?}^he^7th of Feb.
And on that day the words w.erevsaidi"the knot was safely tjed
That constituted Bob and Bellera/?'bajjfpy groom and bride.
For better or worse they took?theVvow that made of it wail the one,
Husband and wife tilt deatii^hbiild part, till life on earth was done.
