WEDDING BELLS.

Murphy-Fitzpatrick.

St. Mary's church was the scene of

a pretty wedding on Tuesday morn-

ing last, when Mr. Hilary Fitzpatrick,

one of the most popular young men of

Ops township, was united in marri-

age to Miss Julia Murphy, of this

town, and daughter of the late Pat-

rick Murphy, of South Ops.

Long before the hour appointed for

the marriage a large number of the

relatives and friends had gathered at

the church. The bride entered with

her brother, Mr. P. J. Murphy, and

was attended by her sister, Miss

Bridget Murphy; while Mr. William

Fitzpatrick accompanied the groom. At

8 a.m. the happy couple were indis-

solubly united by Right Rev. Mgr.

Laurent, after which followed the nup-

tual mass. The costume of the bride

was "au fait," being a stylish gown of

brown lady's cloth with novel chamois

trimmings. She wore a charming hat

of brown velvet, caught up with ef-

fective steel buckles and finished very

stylishly with grebe and ospreys. The

bridesmaid wore a very becoming suit

of light green, with hat to match.

After mass the bridal party with-

drew to the strains of a wedding

march, well rendered by the organist,

Miss Minnie Corkery, and with the

many guests proceeded to the resi-

dence of the bride's mother, corner of

Mill and Melbourne-sts., where, after

cordial congratulations, a sumptuous

wedding breakfast was served. Toasts

were proposed and heartily responded

to.

At 10.45 the bride and groom were

accompanied to the G.R.R. station,

where amidst showers of rice, they

took the east-bound train for Montreal

and other eastern points. The many

exquisite and costly gifts presented

to the bride,k some of which had been

sent from Toronto, Kingston, etc.,

amply proclaimed her popularity and

are a tangible recognition of her well-

known amiability and sweetness of

character. The Post joins in extend-

ing the customary felicitations and

good wishes.
