OTHER  SOCIAL  EVENTS
----------
          One hundred three  members of the  Ridlin and  Bright families held their annual reunion last Saturday, the park at the school building No.3 in this city being the scene of the very happy gathering.  A fried chicken dinner was the feature of the sumptuous dinner at the noon hour.  Officers for the coming year were selected and the next annual  reunion will be held at the home of Warren Robertson of Adams, who was elected president.  Miss Hazel Wright, of St. Paul, was re-elected as secretary-treasurer.  On behalf of the families present, the officers asked the Democrat to thank the members of the school board for the use of the grounds which formed an admirable place for the reunion.  Nearly all of those present are residents of Shelby and Decatur counties.  Among those from a distance were ex-Sheriff  S. D. Leffler, of Jasper county, Illinois, and  Mrs. Jessie Olcott, of Louisville, Ky.
