Picnic and Fish Fry 1878
The picnic and fish fry about 5 miles north of town on last Friday was a grand success and the occasion of much pleasure and mirth. Notwithstanding the prospects of unfavorable weather a large crowd assembled at the chosen place, ealry in the day, all intent on a day's enjoyment. A bountiful supply of provisions was on the grounds, to which all did ample justice. The fish in particular, were very fine. A number of our young folks participated in the pleasures of the occasion, among whom we noticed the following young ladies: Misses Anna and Willie Jared, Fannie and Emma Brooks, Mollie and Lucy White, Sarah Ward, Emma Heryford, and Caddie Tippett.
