Birthday Dinner. One of the most pleasant of the festive occasions in which the Register man has participated this year was the birthday dinner at Mr. James Flanagan’s near Bakerton last Saturday. Mr. Flanagan was fifty years old that day, and his excellent wife and daughters determined to observe the event in proper style. They quietly notified a number of their friends and neighbors, and some sixty or seventy persons gathered to assist in the celebration. The chief event of the day was the dinner, and we have seldom sat down to a more tempting repast. All of the good things of, a country flowing with milk and honey were provided in the most bountiful manner, deliciously cooked and tastefully served. It was a dinner fit for a king, and though the preacher surrounded the chicken and the editor bravely attacked the turkey, there were still many fragments left when all had eaten. Four generations of the family were represented: Mr. and Mrs. George Caton, who were great-grandparents; Mr. and Mrs. Flanagan, the grandparents; Mr. and Mrs. Raleigh Moler, the parents, and their children. From the sturdy appearance of Mr. and Mrs. Caton there is reason to hope in course of time they may add another great to their title. During the afternoon Rev. J. L. Kibler rounded up the children present and baptized several of them. We left the hospitable home of Mr. and Mrs. Flanagan with reluctance, for the day was a thoroughly enjoyable one. Mr. Flanagan was particularly requested to celebrate his birthday oftener here- after than once in a half century– in fact we would not object to helping him every month or so.
