Judge Reynolds had command of the Coldwater light guards on Wednesday, and a creditable appearance did they make. A pleasant event of the day was the serenade given by the Odd Fellows and the Algansee band in the evening to the veteran member of the order, T. R. Rathbun, it being his 66th birthday.
The Coldwater steamer was rather heavy for the well where it took water. The top caved in, but can be easily repaired. Everybody smiled. Everybody seemed happy. Everybody said "success. " And our visitors said "Quincy against the world, " while the modesty of our own people only permitted a "thank you, we are here. " Letters of regret, at not being able to be present, were received by the invitation committee from Hon. E. S. Lacey, Hon. E. L. Koon, Hon. Charles Upson, Hon. E. Hinebaugh, Willard Kidder, Hon. C. D. Randall and others. The wagon carrying the old time threshers (flails) also carried the operators, John Joseph. Orton Hoxie, Dennis Reynolds, and Harvy Chase, also the ancient sickle, scythe, grain cradle, and wooden fork. Also the head of a deer that was killed in 1846, the gun that did the deed, and the man who drew the trigger, Orton Hoxie. Among the ancient articles in the procession Wednesday, were two candlesticks and candles over one hundred years old, presented by Mrs. J. K. Biek- ford.
