all of Drakeville, Iowa, were present. Mr. & Mrs. Conca, of Kansas City, Kansas,
Miss Lizzie and Jennie Huff,

brothers having celebrated their fiftieth wedding anniversary prior to this time.
Mr. & Mrs. Claton
were married in Indiana and subsequently went to Illinois where they resided until they came to
Kansas, some sixteen years ago. Mr. Claton's first vote for President was cast for James K. Polk,
and his last for Grover Cleveland. He is personally acquainted with Vice-President-elect Steveson
and voted for him for Congressman three times. Both Mr. & Mrs. Claton are well preserved, enjoy
good health, are at peace with all the world and are living in the enjoyments of the evening of life.
Their friends unite with the Herald in wishing them many happy returns of their marriage.
