J. Thurmond who have started on their 05th year of wedded life together. They are looking forward to their diamond wedding anniversary which will be celebrated at thc end of 75 years. Mr. and Mrs. Thurmond, who live at Lcachvitle, look back to the year 1675 when Mary Elizabeth Sli'cle was forced to run away with the neighbor boy because her father wouldn't give his consent to their marriage as they were both too young. Now Hint they arc a "little" older, 83 years for both of them to be exact, they evidently feel the same as they felt then after having recently observed their G'Uh wedding anniversary. Although Having retired from ac- (ive farm interests, Mr. Thurmond siill remains active enough to perform on his violin, which he be| lieves is a genuine Joseph Gar- diniere made in 1736. For 73 years, he has been playing on that violin and feels that this is not the time to quit.
