Moflaea, Pa. "My Lttle boy, who
is the youngest of three, was weak,
nervous and tired all the time, so he
was most unfit at school, and noth

of Vinol and gave it to him. It has
restored his health and strength and
he has gained in weight." Mrs.
Frederick Sommers, Monaca, Pa.

Fiftieth Wedding Anniversary.
Mr. and Mr3. D. A. Allen cele
brated their fiftieth wedding anni
versary on lest Tuesday, Feb. 18.
Those present with them "on this
happy occasion were their children,
Mr. and Mrs. G. S. Allen and little
daughter, Dorothea Anne, Mr. and
Mrs. Claude Allen, Mioses Deulah
and Eulelah Allen. The out-of-town
guests were Mrs. T. J. Dowling,
Judge and Mrs. A. W. Stovall, of
Jackson, Tenn., and Mr. G. M. Stov
all, of Helena, Ark., sisters and
brothers of Mrs. Allen; Mrs. . .Belle
Amburn, of Fartnland, Ind., and Mrs.
Susan Tucker, of Washington, Ind.,
sisters of Mr. Allen. Two of the
sisters and one brother of Mrs. Al
len could not be present on account
of illness. ;
The presents were many and all
In gold, the children giving coins,
the brothers and sisters Jewels and a
loving cup of gold beautifully en
graved with tho name of bride -and
groom, donor3, dates, etc. . -
It was an Ideal day, as was the
wedding day fifty years ago, and one
long to be remembered by those pres
ents. Among the enjoyable features
of the occasion were a number of
songs by -,the flve-year-old grand
daughter, Dorothea Anno.
A delightful turkey dinner was
served, the center piece being of sun
burst rose3. When tho last course
had been served, on the stroke of
three, the hour of the wedding cere
mony, Judge " Stovall, the oldest
brother, read tho following original
lines: v
'Tis fifty years sinco you were wed,
, those were eventful years,
And many blessings crowned your
head, and alternate smiles and
Let's take a reminiscent glance, and
trace the fleeting days,
And note the changeful hues of life,
where Joy and sorrow stays.
'Twas In the year of sixty-nine, when
life seemed young and strong
Your plighted lovo a flowering vine,
and sweeter than c, song, g
And In that far-flown Halcyon day,
beneath God's peaceful dome
Your hearts and hands made instant
plans, to form yourselves ' a
home, ' -
The home was not begilded with rare
trinkets of the mm, ,
But righteous love was built therein .
- and twined each other's heart.
Tho babes you kissed, those Jewels
rare, and held with (admiration,
Are still to you iilive or dead, c noble
inspiration. '"
Tis not so long ago sinco then, a
space of fifty years, ,
But in that time what marvels came
and myriad hopes r-.nd fears.
No moving pictures, graced the stage,
no phonographs to show,
Nor wireless message sought relief,
back fifty years ago. .
No airplanes sailed thru genial skies,
to carry humr.n souls,
No soldiers fought within tho earth.
In trenches or in holes,
Electric" lights nor telephones, nor
electric car3 or. train,
No automobile speeding ways, con
ceived by human"brain.
But God was good to those who stood
in paths of recitudo
As a half a century agdt divinest laws
Let's thank the Lord for Joining
hands, of hands not made for
For Joining hearts brimful of love,
Just fifty years ago.
