Once again I am including a little “country news”. This is my great-grandfather’s column.

Rufe Bolts Writes of Liberty News and Happenings
It has been so long since I wrote the news for Liberty I am at a loss to know where to begin: Let’s see; Oh, well, I can’t remember when I did write so I will make this letter retroactive to Christmas.
There has been three weddings since I wrote last: Harve Dillard and Miss Jocie Capchinsky were quietly married some time before Christmas; also Virgil Hartman and Miss Beatrice Allen; and Hack Phillips and Miss Marie Snow. We wish all three couples a long and happy life. Of course those young people will never forgive me for waiting so long without announcing their wedding, but the fact is I forgot; but when I meet them and see the happiness of the new-found bliss firmly stamped on their visages, I see it would be useless for me to apologize and resign myself to take the consequences of their disfavor.
Mr. and Mrs. J. V. Trimmer of Tuttle, spent Christmas with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. C. W. Banta; and by the way C. W. Banta and wife celebrated their Golden wedding day while the children were with them, they having been married fifty years ago the 30th of December last. They had with them ten of their children and grandchildren; not all of them, but a jolly bunch. They have in all four children and twenty grandchildren living.
Liberty can boast of several new citizens: One Mr. Head now living on H. T. Faudree’s place and Mr. Whittle 3/4 mile east of Liberty and a Mr. Fox one mile north of Liberty. All these are new neighbors and we hope they find Liberty a pleasant place to live and will make good citizens. We bid them a hearty welcome.
Now if I am not too badly in the red with the editor I will try to be more prompt in the future than I have been in the past in reporting the Liberty news. Rufe Bolts
