Mr. and Mrs. John Pierson of Brookville, Ohio, recently celebrated their golden wedding anniversary. Each is past 72 years of age. They were married in '66 and are popular with many friends in the community.

A most pleasant occasion was observed in honor of Mr. and Mrs. John Pierson at their country home north of Brookville by a large number of relatives and friends last Sunday, April 16. The aged couple, smiling and happy, welcomed numerous guests who began to arrive early Sunday morning from the surrounding towns. The affair was made more cheerful by Mr. and Mrs. Bell of Dayton, O. who rendered beautiful selections on stringed instruments. In the center of the large hospitable dining table, loaded down with the best of the flourishing old homestead, a large bouquet of red carnations presented by their charming grandchild, Miss Mary Hesseman, topped the scene with a flourish. Two large wedding cakes, one marked "Father" and the other "Mother" were novel and attractive features of the elaborate dinner.
