Celebrates 75th Birthday
Judge Jos. H. Little was 75 years old Thursday and his wife and children planned a little surprise for him that proved very enjoyable to all concerned, but no one knows for sure whether the Judge was surprised or not. The guests gathered a little before 6 o'clock and at 6:30 sat down to a splendid supper to which all did ample justice. Among those from out of town were Mrs. Nellie Straub of Wanamaker, Harry Perkins of Dover, Mrs. Belle Fuller of St. Joseph, Sam Little of Adrian, Minn., Robt. Day and family of Eskridge, C. B. Kent and wife, Mrs. B. R. Henderson and son Harry and Miss Emma Little of Mission Creek. A few relatives and old time friends from town were also present, among whom was Mrs. Thus. Barker who is in her 86th year. Many gifts and tokens of esteem were given the Judge and his wife, whose birthday occurred the next day, chief among which was a large Morris chair given them by their children.
Since 1867 Judge Little has been a resident of this county and few men have a wider circle of friends and few are more esteemed for their uprightness and high character. He is still hale and hearty, a remarkably well preserved man and good for many years of health and usefulness.
