WERE WED 50 YEARS AGO
Major and Mrs. H.H. Harding Celebrate Golden Wedding Anniversary Today
Held Informal Reception This Afternoon and Evening --
Many Congratulations Come To Them.
Major and Mrs. H.H. Harding celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of their wedding today at a family dinner at 1 o'clock. Those present besides Major and Mrs. Harding were the couples two daughters and their husbands, Mr. & Mrs. A.T. Deacon of Harrisonville, accompanied by their daughter, Miss Frances Deacon, and Mr. & Mrs. William B. Hill of Kansas City; Major Harding's oldest brother, accompanied by his daughter, Miss Mary of Nebraska City, Nebraska; Major Harding's nephew, William H. Lininger,
of Topeka, Kansas, accompanied by his wife, and Mrs. Harding's sisters, Mrs. Sally Jones and Mrs. Cora Harrison of Carthage.
It was hoped that Paul Harding,the only son, could be present, but he is in Cuba with some very large contracts requiring his attention and he could not leave the island at this time under any consideration.
A brother of Major Harding, A.J. Harding of Chicago, had fully intended to be present today, but he was called east on important business a few days ago and could not carry out his original plans.
While Major and Mrs. Harding have arranged for no formal party in observance of today's anniversary and no invitations have been issued, they have held and informal reception throughout this afternoon with many callers and will continue to do so this evening. The couple are glad to see all their friends and receive personally their congratulations on the happy occasion.
