Daughters of the Revolution.
Chapter Proposed For Cartersville That Gives Promise of a Brilliant Existence.

A meeting was called on last Thursday at The Oaks for the purpose of discussing the organization of a chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution here.  Mrs. Oscar T. Peeples who is a member at large has been invited by the national board to act as regent and presided over the meeting.  Great enthusiasm was shown by the ladies present and by many who were unable to come but who desired to have their names enrolled as charter members.  Twenty-eight names were enrolled as prospective members and there are others who are altogether eligible and who will no doubt come into the chapter.

The regent appointed the following officers to serve the first year:

Vice-regent, Mrs. Joel G. Greene; Secretary, Mrs. Lila Calhoun Morgan; Registrar, Miss Flora Fite; Treasurer, Miss Elinor Jones.

The next meeting will be held the third Thursday in March at which time a name for the chapter will be considered.

Fifty-Ninth Anniversary.
Col. and Mrs. C. M. Jones Give Dinner at Their Home, Near Emerson.

Col. and Mrs. C. M. Jones celebrated the fifty-ninth anniversary of their marriage with a family dinner at their home, near Emerson last Saturday.  Quite a gathering of the children and grandchildren attended and besides these a few friends including the editor, the preacher, a mining partner and the photographer, who made some splendid group views for the occasion.

It is rare that a couple celebrates their fiftieth wedding anniversary or golden wedding, but this Col. and Mrs. Jones did nine years ago and now they are approaching their diamond wedding with fair chances of getting there, as they both seem in excellent health for their ages.

The dinner was a splendid feast greatly enjoyed by all present.

Col. and Mrs. Jones were married in Gwinnett county. They have reared a large family of children and grandchildren of whom they are very fond and who are a credit to them.  Col. Jones is one of Bartow’s respected and honored citizens.
