Osburn, the oldest member of the class, on Wednesday, the 29th day of November, that being the 93rd anniversary of the birth of "Aunt" Amanda, and it was a delightful surprise.
The class, together with the officers and teachers of the school and others who had heretofore been members of the class while residents in Wayne, having prepared a feast in the way of eatables, gathered at the home, bringing an abundance of good things to eat, and invited "Aunt" Amanda to join them in a birthday dinner in her honor.
