      Perryville, Ky,, Oct. 18 - The old farm homestead of Mr. Richard H. Guthrie, two miles south of this place, was the scene last Saturday of one of the most pleasant gatherings ever known in Boyle County.
      There were present about 130 persons from the States of Texas, Kansas, Tennessee and Kentucky. On October 11, 1842, the Rev. David E. Hardesty united in the bonds of matrimony Mr. Richard H. Guthrie and Miss Sarah E. Stewart. So Saturday Mr. and Mrs. Guthrie celebrated the sixtieth anniversary of their marriage. The people in attendance were their relatives and descendants. They have eight children, fifteen grandchildren and one great-grandchild, all of whom took dinner with the happy couple at 1:30 o'clock.
      Mr. Guthrie has been a successful farmer, and both himself and wife have enjoyed excellent health during their life. Both are in their eighty-first year, Mr. Guthrie being three months the oldest.
