composed by the bride of 50 years ago.
Several songs were sung by Mesdames
Sol. Morey and liivens and also by the
choir of the Presbyterian church. O.
W. Morey furnished considerable
amusement with an Edison phonograph
and 'during the evening reproduced ex
pressions and names spoken into the
instrument by a large number of those
present. Manyaluable and useful
presents were bestowed upon the bride
and groom of 50 years , showing only
in part the high rfgard and esteem in
which this venerable couple is held by
the r friends. Long may they live to
enjoy each other's companionship
with that sweet contentment in their
minds of sous and daughters and grand
children that are praiseworthy and caus
ing no regrets iu"their declining years.
Last Saturday nipht while J. E.
Thackrey and his nephew were asleep
in their house down on Marsh Lake a
lire was slowly creeping upon them.
The house consisted of two claim
shanties joined together making a
house about 12x26 setting north and
south. The south part being used for
SIsi cooking and eating room and they
slept in the north room. . The wind was
olowing from the south and carried
the flames and smoke in upon the oc
cupants who were so soundly sleeping
that they did not awaken until they
were nearly suffocated with smoke.
Half da"zed they were finally aroused
and blindly staggering through the
smoke and fire each cariiedoutan
armiul of bed clothes believing their
own wearing apparel to be thrown
across the bed and that they had car
ried it out , also. In another instant
the : whole building was wrapped in
lames as the wind blew fierce and
strong as it always does when thei e 4e
h're. Everything was burned except
what was carried out as they scramb
led out of bed. Two new saddles , all
their : clothing , guns , ammunition ,
loaded cartridges and shells , a can of
smokeless powder and a five gallon
tank ; of kerosene helped to make
things lively as the boys danced
around outside dodging bullets as the
ammunition became heated and
fought out the fire that seemed de
termined ( to get away from them and
burn , up the prairie range , the while
barefooted , bnreheaded and just as
they tumbled out of bed. Finally af
ter whipping out the fire , with a calf
skin , that was burning the grass
iround the house , they returned to
he bed clothing which was scorched
ind burnt from running through the
Ire. : Their wearing apparel and shoes
vere burned in the house and there
vas nothing to do but wrap them-
lelves in comfort like a redskin and
jc < to the nearest camp to borrow
lothrs until they could go to town.
Mr. Thackrey came to town Sunday.
o cause for the fire is known unless
he house was struck by lightning.
