Among the items unavoidably crowded out last week was oue concerning a f amily reunión on the occasion of the ninetieth birthday of Mrs. Sarah Laraway, of Salem, on August 13. There were present on that occasion forty of her sons and daughters and their children, whose aggregate ages were 1,33H years or an average of 33 years. The söns present were Hascal, of Northfield, Jackson, of Jackson, John, of Salem, Alanson, of North Branch. The daughters were Mrs. Gouldsborrough,. Mrs. Fenton and Mrs. Chase. It goes without saying that the reunión was a very pleasant one. Although ninety years old, Mrs. Laraway is in full possession of all her faculties, reads a great deal and does not use glasses. She was born in Séneca county, New York, and was married in 1821 to Jonas Laraway, with whom she settled on the farm where she has since resided in October, 1829. The farm is situated on section 36, of Salem. Her husband died twentyeight years ago.
