Happy Occasion.
Birthday Gathering at the Quillian Home at Cass.
A Day Memorable to the Participants for its Many Pleasures--Some valuable Presents Bestowed, Etc.

Last Sunday was a day looked forward to with much pleasure by the Quillian family, it being the birthday of both Mrs. B. B. Quillian and her son, Gus, they concluded to have a reunion of the immediate family, and all of Mr. Qullian’s children were present but one daughter who lives at Ellijay, who was detained on account of sickness. There were seven of them, and it was a goodly sight indeed to see these brothers and sisters together and the proud look of the white haired father as he sat among them. Those present were Mrs. Wilson, of Fairmount; Mrs. Green, of Rome; Mr. Will Quillian of Atlanta; Mr. Chapel Quillian and wife, of Cass, and Gus and Capers Quillian, of Cartersville. There were five grandchildren present also, Mr. Virgil Wilson, of Fairmount, Mrs. Green’s sweet little twin children, Helen and Stella, Bethel Quillian, Mr. C. M. Quillian’s little boy. There was also present one great grandchild, little Nell Sellers, of Atlanta.

There were several handsome and useful presents given Mrs. Quillian and Gus, among them were a nice rocker from Capers to his mother, a handsome dressing case from Miss Jennie and Capers, and a nice smoking jacket to Gus from Mrs. Quillian. Mr. Quillian gave Gus his pocket Bible he used to carry with him everywhere, and which was an heirloom in the family. We know this gift was appreciated. We hope they may live to see many more such happy anniversaries.
