The Hargis Reunion.
Family and Friends Enjoy a Delightful Day at the Old Homestead.

The annual reunion of the Hargis family was held at the home of Capt. R. R. Hargis at Cass Station last Saturday, and it was a most enjoyable occasion.

The family and friends began to assemble at ten o’clock and by noon quite a large crowd was present.

Capt. R. R. Hargis was the host on the occasion and gave a royal welcome to kindred and friends to the old homestead of the Hargis family.

At noon an elegant dinner was spread on the table under the trees at the foot of the hill where a bold spring gushes forth from beneath the rocks and a cooler or more inviting spot could not be found for a picnic.  The table was loaded with everything conceivable in the way of good things to eat and Mrs. Hargis, assisted by her daughter, Miss Dixie and other ladies of the family, saw that everyone was bountifully supplied with all that could be desired, and the feast was greatly enjoyed.

After dinner the party was entertained by speeches and recitations which was a most enjoyable part of the program.  Among those who spoke were Capt. R. R. Hargis, Mr. O. P. Rogers, Misses Ruth Rogers, Jessie Hargis, Fannie Lewis, Laura Bell Chapman, J. F. Hargis and Rees Marshall.

All present spent a most delightful day and hope to be able to attend many more such pleasant reunions.
