A Crystal Wedding

OSWEGO, July 1.—The social event in Oswego this week was the celebration last evening of the crystal wedding of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Walling at their handsome residence one mile above Oswego. At an early hour the guests began to arrive, and by nine o’clock the large and commodious rooms were filled to overflowing. Rev. R.M. Jones acted as master of ceremonies. Declamations, speech-making and music were the order of the evening. Mr. Scholl made the hit of the evening by singing an old song that Mr. Scholl remarked used to be sung in Oregon in early days when a man had to get a wife in order to hold his section of land. Ice cream, cake and strawberries were served during the evening. Among those present from abroad were the father and mother of Mrs. Walling—Mr. and Mrs. Bagby of Wilhoit; Calvin Bagby, Frank Bagby, and Jessie Bagby, all of Wilhoit; Mr. and Mrs. Clark, of Portland; Mrs. Dr. Sandford of Glencoe; Mrs. Mark, of Oregon City, and quite a large number of other relatives and friends. Mistletoe Lodge, D. of H., of which Mr. and Mrs. Walling are honored members, attended in a body. The list of names of those were in attendance from Oswego would be tedious to your readers. Suffice it to say that almost every house in Oswego was represented. The presents were numerous and appropriate. At a late hour the assembly broke up with the hearty wish that Mr. and Mrs. Walling may live many years and enjoy to the fullest extent the many blessing which are strewn along the pathway of life.
