Happy People
          On last Saturday, the neighbors and friends assembled in goodly number at the residence of Mrs. John Halbrook, in Union Township, to celebrate that lady's sixty-ninth birthday.  They came with their baskets well filled with the substantials as well as the delicacies of this world's good, and soon the tables were spread and the assembled guests partook of the bountiful repast.  Around the festive board wat the aged and the young, each enjoying themselves in their own peculiar way.  The aged recounting to each other the many changes that had taken place in their lives, since childhood's happy hours, and the young building castles in the air, in anticipation of the happy future before them.  The occasion was one of great pleasure to all, and the assembly broke up at a late hour.
