    • Newspaper Article - Wednesday, October 11, 1905 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Married Fifty Years - Mr. and Mrs. Henry B. Clark Celebrate their Golden Wedding - Fifty years ago, Monday, the 9th day of October, in the village of Asheville, Chautauqua County, Henry Brown Clark, of this village, and Miss Adelaide Williams, of that village, stood before the marriage altar and to the solemn wedding vows as recited to them by Rev. Beramus Bemis. They soon took up their residence in this village where Mr. Clark was then, as he is today, engaged in the mercantile business. Both were popular among a large circle of friends and they at once took their place among the foremost of our residents and with faithful regard for the best interest of the social, church and business life they have filled the long years of half a century with its usefulness in the community, devotion to home and helpful support to all that has to do with making their hometown better. The completion of the fifty years of wedded life was celebrated, Monday evening, and in response to beautiful invitations, painted in gold, the home was filled with guests from the appointed hour, eight o'clock, until midnight. The home was a perfect delight for its abundant floral decorations and tasty trimmings in green vines and autumn leaves. Mrs. Clark wore a becoming dress of black voile and Mrs. Betts wore black net over black silk. The guests passed through the dining room door to a scene brilliant with electric lights and a row of wax candles in brass candlesticks upon the center table. The decorations of this room were green vines and golden blossoms. From the table to the chandelier were white and yellow ribbons forming the appearance of a Maypole. Refreshments were served by young ladies and the delicate and delicious preparations were greatly enjoyed. In the upper hall part of the Ross orchestra, of Syracuse, a harp and violin, rendered sweet music during the evening. The company was eminently happy in the privilege of social intercourse and the exchange of friendly greetings. The gifts were a dazzling collection of choice tokens, mostly of gold or golden character. They included a gold clock in a dome, which has almost perpetual action in that it is supposed to run four hundred days. The other gifts included a gold headed cane, a gold framed chair and a gold dollar coined in the year of their marriage. The groom presented his bride with a golden oak china closet Mrs. Clark was assisted in entertaining, besides her daughter, Mrs. Francis P. Betts, by Mrs. George W. Douglas, Mrs. Sarah S. Allen, Mrs. Charles Stoddard and Mrs. Z. R. Evans, who opened and closed the way to the dining room by use of a white ribbon.
