Quite a number of the intimate friends of Wm. Bainum met at his home on Wednesday to celebrate the Golden wedding of he and his wife. Though in feeble health he enjoyed the occasion very much. Thus year by year time has rolled by till half a century has passed away since the eventful period which the day commemorated transpired. Though they cannot expect to repeat this history his friends hope they may live many years longer to share in the fellowship of their kindred and friends.
