Mr. and Mrs. Will R. Senter observed their Silver Wedding at Bokchito the present week. There is a family reunion. Miss Dora Lewis, daughter of Mrs. Senter, who is spending the winter in Denison, and Miss Daisy Van Housen, are at Bokchito to participate in the silver wedding jubilee. The best that the gazetteer can wish is that Mr. and Mrs. Senter may live to enjoy their golden wedding. There is nothing affected or superficial about the hospitality or friendship of the Senters. It is the genuine article and you feel it so when you enter the portals of their home.
Died: G. W. Hinchey, of Ego, I. T., who has been here for a week, died Wednesday, January 3, 1900. Mr. Hinchey was born in 1873 in the state of Arkansas and came to the Territory twelve years ago. Lung trouble set up about three years ago, and with all that could be done for him, it grew worse until Wednesday morning he passed away quietly and without a struggle. Mr. Henchey was not a member of the church, but was a quiet, peaceable man. He leaves a wife, who watched over him with great patience and meekness until he gave his last sign. He has also four brothers and one sister and many friends who lament his death.
