Mrs. Cook Celebrates her 84th Birthday
Mrs. Julia Ann Cook, 84 years of age, on November 3, celebrated her birthday Sunday at the home of her son-in-law, Louis K. Bilbrey, near Allons. A similar celebration was held at this place one year ago, at which time it was resolved that a repetition be had at the same place in 1934, and at each succedding birthday of Mrs. Cook, so that this occasion has been anticipated with much pleasure.

At one o'clock p.m., an assembly of 160 had gathered, coming from Clay, Cumberland, Jackson, Putnam, and White Counties. Many of the visitors bring baskets and other containers filled with food which blended with the copious supply prepared at the home made a most attractive table both in point of quantity and variety. The cake which had been prepared by a niece, Lucy Price Mitchell, was placed at the head of the long table, and contained 84 candles which completed the table arrangments.
