MRS. A. T. HESEIM. Corrtipondent.
When it was learned that April 28
was the date of the Golden Wedding
anniversary of Mr. and Mm. Robert
Nickerson, it was the suggestion of
Mrs. J. R. Johnson that a celebration
3hould be given for them in honor of
the occasion. Everyone was glad to
help and Thursduy night the commun
ity church was crowded to the doors
to assist Mr. and Mrs. Nickerson com
memorate the event. It is a bit un
usual for a small community to have
the opportunity to celebrate a Gold
en Wedding. MrB. Feess sang "Be
cause I Love You," playing her own
accompaniment. Then a mock' wed
ding was given by a number of chil
dren. This brought much applause
and the bridal party was indeed mest
attractive. Little Maxene Ballenger
made a charming little bride and
Junior Davis was the groom. Little
Billy Price carried the ring on a
cushion and Mardell Gorham, aged 3,
was a darling little flower girl strew
ing flowers in the bride's pathway in
a realistic manner. Allen Chaffee
supported the groom and Paul Feess
was the minister. Mrs. reess, Mrs,
Nate Macomber and Mrs. Cornwall
had charge of this feature and de
serve much credit for the fine per
formance of the children as only one
or two rehearsals were held. Follow
ing this Mr. and Mrs. Nickerson again
plighted their troth for another BO
years. Rev. A. D. Swogger read the
ceremony. On April 28, 1877, Jane
Pritchard and Robert Nickerson were

ployed on the A. Porter ranch, and
his family, was present at this time.
Other children are Mrs. Julia Heath
of King Hill. Idaho, Mrs. Ethel Neth-
ercott of Willows, Calif., and Robert
Nickerson of Klamath, Wn. There are
21 grandchildren living. Mrs. Ralph
Davis sang "Into the Dusk." with Mrs.
Spagle at the piano. Mrs. Kelly sang
"When You and I Were Young, Mag
pic," accompanied by Mrs. Mead, and
Mrs. Lowell Spagle played La De
sire." C. S. Calkins in a neat speech
presented them with a box contain
ing a $5 gold piece. This sum was
more than doubled during the eve
ning. Mrs. C. G. Blayden and Mrs.
J. C. Ballenger were on the reception
committee and Mrs. Johnson had
charge of the lunch with the able as
sistance of otherB. Wild flowers were
gathered by the Smith boys and Miss
Ueougher loaned her gorgeous tulip

tion for the past year and have been

cd and a lovely big cake, made by
Mrs. L. G. Smith, was presented to

ion on the part of the community
