Last Sunday the home of Mr. and Mrs. A. P. ROBINSON, of Marion, was the scene of one of those happy events which are rarely celebrated, that is, the holding of a family reunion. As Mrs. ROBINSON's 45th birthday occured this week she decided that it would be a good plan to have all of her family present Sunday to help her celebrate it. So invitations were sent to different ones and in response to these, Mr. and Mrs. E. A. BEAN and son and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. John BAXTER and son, Mr. and Mrs. A. A. BAXTER and two children, Mr. and Mrs. Claud GUSTIN and child, and the Misses Georgie and Emma JONES, and J. A. CRUMMETT arrived at their home about 10:30, where in company with Mr. and Mrs. E. H. DaVOE and two children, Mr. and Mrs. Chas. ROBINSON and child, Mr. and Mrs. George DUNTLEY, Miss Abbie ROBINSON, and Messrs. Johnie JONES, Bert and Guy JORDAN made up a party of 30 present. At 2 o'clock a bountiful repast, got up for just such an occasion, was served by host and hostess, and to which all did ample justice. After dinner different instruments were brought out from their respective places and put into use, when the next hour was spent in singing, etc. Delicious ice cream and cake was now passed around, after which the time was spent in sociability. Mr. and Mrs. ROBINSON were the recipients of many very pretty and useful presents which were brought by the guests as a reminder of the pleasant event they had come to participate in. The party broke up at 7:30 o'clock each and evryone declaring that they had had a most enjoyable time and wishing that Mr. and Mrs. ROBINSON might live to enjoy and celebrate a good many more similar gatherings. ---One of Them
