In well fitting words he thanked them

wore as the .same worn by his grand
father, Jonathcn Clark, as a wedding

and Lutheria (Wheeler) Clark were
married by O. N. Bouwcll January
21, 1861), at the place where Herbert
Blair now lives. They lived there for
a time then moved to the Chapman
place and later Mr. Clark built the
house where Charles Bradley now
lives. When Mr. Clark's father dieS
Mr. and Mrs. Clark moved to the
place where his son, Chester, now
lives, which is the old "Clark" place,
having been in the Clark family
about 135 years, being first settled
by Jonathen Clark, who lived in a log
house near where the present hose
now stands. The present house on
the place was built by Jonathan
Clark, later it became the home of
Judc and Sarah (Prime) Clark, then
Mr and Mrs. George Clark, and at
present is the home of Mr. and Mrs.

The Golden Rule
We are gathered here today
From towns far and near,
For fifty years have passed away,
To those who to our hearts are dear
Neighbors, friends and children all,
Have answerea to me gumtn
Listened to the one that said,
Fifty years have they been wed.
Looking through the mist of years
Many of joy, some of tears,
To the clay when you were wed
And the hopes of love were said.
First in Pcacham then to live,
And the toil of life to give
On the farm upon the hill,
Next the village land to till.
Then came joy of children three,
Chester, Alden and fair Elsie,
Brightening up your happy lot,
Until they were by marriage caught.
One is found not far away
Calling in most every day.
One is on the old home farm
Tilling it with steady arm.
The youngest to the west did go
Finding business in Fargo.
So from our numbers here is absent
Distance prevents him to be present.
Three from our numbers merry,
Were present in that January.
Fifty years ago -when ties were said
And Geor-;.j and Lutheria were wed.
Though then but children small
They are present in the hall,
Besides them, two sisters yet
Of whom mention we must not forget.
Yet tho ou. numbers may be broken
We extend to you love's token
In memory of these fifty years
You have traveled without fear.
May your days so numbered bo
That the Redeemer's face you'll see,
When upon the other shore
Days are numbered never more.

excellent foul shooting of Malvern,
