There were about 150 guests during the afternoon and evening, and congratulations, hearty and sincere, were tendered to the venerable couple* to whom years have brought the respect and love of all who know them. The rooms were handsomely decorated with plants and flowers. . The spring bad- brought her fragrant apple blossoms earlier than her custom, as if in contribution to the happiness of the occasion and roses 1'rom the cities added their beauty and perfume. Numerous tokens of remembrance came from distant relatives and from Algona friends and relatives. A guest book in white and gold, and suitably lettered came from Dr. J. H. Hallock, brother of Mrs. Hudson, and the.editor and publisher of Christian Work, and the guests were asked to contribute their autographs to its pages. A hair bracelet and chain came from Mrs. Hudson's two sisters, one at Orient, Long Island, and the other at New Haven. This was woven from Mrs. Hudson's mother's hair thirty years ago, and is a family heirloom. The mother, Mrs. Esther P. Hallock, is still living with her son, Geo. W. Ilallock, at Orient, and is 93 years of age. The old Hallock family bible, with the family record, came from this venerable lady, and will be a treasure of her descendants for coming generations. Another contribution from distant friends is a beautiful bed room set, suggesting well earned' rest to the recipients. An interesting sample of California gold came from Geo.

The Hallock name is the most numerous on Long Island. There is one neighborhood that is called Hallock-town on account of the predominant name, which is more numerous than the Smiths or the Joneses.

Thursday last Dr. Armstrong came up from his Irvington home and spent the day with Dr. Garfleid. During the afternoon the commissioners of insanity paid him a visit and decided that be should be sent to Independence, JLt was a clear case of insajuty and no doubl was left in the mind of any member of the board. Accordingly Sheriff Sam- sop and Clerk B. P. Grose accompaniec tlie qnfortunate man to the asylum at Independence on Friday. Dr, Avw strong's nervous system has been ser iously affected by sickness and other causes and be is left in a lamentable condition, bejng almost constantly the prey to hallucinations which, surrounc him. wilb imaginary tormentors and ponspiratprs. He talks of these Almost constantly. One of his stories isthatasectiphwastafcen out oj the iBifl4le of his house, and be taken witl it as a prisoner, on a flat car, and lef in it down by the river west of town When Dr. Garfteld visi|;ed him las week Dr. Aypastrong told aim of.thi aiiia calie4 bis Attention to the artistu what had been done. Another of the .many stories he tells is that a basement has been excavated and a kitchen built on"'the north side of his house. He has been on the watch for thieves, and fre- doing.;,;;Once ^|ie ft ;jj|rtii)]efi',• ..through a screen door aft*ei' ateimagiflair btirglar. He is quite strong, though confined to his house so long, and it was^tliought best to take him to the' asylum j^where his malady will be best understood and most successfully treated. His case is regarded as serious, but not necessarily incurable. He was aware where he was going, and thought he would like to consult with Dr. Hill, yet to some he said he was going'to see his sister in Minneapolis. Dr. Armstrong's condition causes sadness in the hearts of the many in all sarts of the county who have so long mown him and enjoyed his friendship. ""ew men have stood higher in the es- ;eem of his acquaintances. He has been admired for his bright mind and wide information, while his rare social qualities won many firm friends.
