The following from Wilmot
was crowded out last week:
A/1 j* Geo 2sxtcr re
turned Thursday evening from
Lincoln County Wis., where
they had been to attend a fami
ly reunion gives at the paternal
home of Mr. and Mrs. John
Baxter cn New Years day and
where the entire family was
represented. From one who
was there we glean the follow
ing facts:
The Grand Reunion was the
idea of their son George W. of
Wilmot S. D. who summoned
every member of the family
to Clifford Wis. for New Years
day. None were obliged to send
regrets and on the eventful day
the father's home was a scene of
the happiest event ever chroni
cled in the history of Lincoln
County. The guests, numbering
twenty in all arrived in plenty of
time for the big New Year din
ner and most of them remained
for several days. The father
had the coiaplete entertainment
of the family in charge and from
morning till night there was
nothing but thorough enjoyment
and pleasure for all.
On New Years day at 6:00
o'clock P. M. when the family
had the specious dining room
to themselves' the reunion din
ner was announced. The air
was filled with happiness and
good cheer and until eight
o'clock merriment with young
and bid alike reigned supreme.
The happy spirit was every where
even in the decorations which
were arranged by the skillful
hand and artistic eye of the
hostess. The long table was
arranged in the spacious dining
room and at the head were
seated the father and mother
while on the one side sat the old
est son and on the obher opposite
the oldest daughter then the
next oldest and so on down the
line, This unique idea of the
hostess's being carried out to
the youngest of the grandchild
During the serving of the
sumptuous dinner, which lasted
three hours, impromptu remarks
were indulged in in which the
entire assembly joined heartily.
After the close of the dinner all
gathered around the organ and
sang the old familiar hymns,
"'Twill All Be Over Soon" and
"God Be With You Till We Meet
Again." All voted it the time of
their lives.
The members of the family
were: John Baxter and «*ife and
Wm. Harcourt and wife of Clif
ford, Wis., Wm. J. Baxter and
wife of Weyborn, Canada. Mrs.
Hattie Borland, of Madison, S.
D., Mrs. Marian Samasac and son
of Janesville, Minn., Mrs. Win
nifred Burnett Smith, of Mill,
Minn., Edward Baxter, of Ash
land, Wis., Misses Clara Baxter,
Lillian Baxter and Iva Baxter, of
Clifford Wis., Harr.v Bax er and
