Greenwood - June 9, 1882

Editors Times: Peter Olson and his wife, aged respectively eighty-one and seventy-eight years, celebrated the anniversary of their fiftieth wedding day, at the residence of their son, Elias Peterson. Mr. Olson was born in Norway, 1801, and came to this country of his adoption nine years ago. The anniversary occurred June 2. Elias Peterson exhibited to the writer a wine glass used on this occasion and informed us that the same was used just fifty years ago across the great waters at the marriage ceremony of his parents. It has been kept through the vista of years and handed down as a relic of fifty years ago. There were about one hundred present on the occasion, eighteen grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. A good time was reported, but in all human probability but few more anniversaries will come to this aged couple.

We have had three nights in succession without a frost; what will be the outgrowth of such a sudden change in the climate we know not.

Mrs. A. S. Eaton has returned from **Rest cut off. **
