WEDDING BELLS. - A large assembly of the friends and relatives of Mr. and Mrs. James Flett, gathered at their fine residence on the afternoon of Wednesday, 27th inst., to witness the marriage of their daughter Mary, to Mr. Wm. Green. The interesting ceremony was duly performed by the Rev. Mr. Kinnon of Fenelon Falls. The young couple was ably assisted through the trying ceremony by Mr. David Green, brother of the groom, and Miss Jennie Flett, sister of the bride; the latter was elegantly attired in beautiful wedding apparel and was to all appearance the flower of the flock. After partaking of a sumptuous repast of the many good things provided for the occasion. The happy guests retired to the parlor where all enjoyed themselves immensely with music and singing, while some indulged in friendly games. Everybody wore a countenance of happiness and each one's cup of pleasure was swimming full, with merry voices and peals of laughter, the fleeting hours sped by unnoticed by the happy guests. No little credit is due Mr. Chas. Pogue who showed great skill and activity in handling the violin and bones. Mrs. John Northey also deserves special mention for her kindness in rendering much good music for the occasion, especially for the perfect rendering of the Wedding March, during which the bride was supported to the altar leaning on the arm of her father. Mrs. John Devitt also ranks among the first class musicians of the day, as she cheerfully gave some fine selections on organ and violin. The happy company broke up at a late hour and retired to their respective homes, after wishing Mr. and Mrs. Green every success and happiness in their new sphere of life. The following are some of the gifts presented to the bride and will show to some extent the manner in which she is esteemed by her many friends. Her absence from the old home circle will be sorely felt, as she is one of those daughters of whom any mother may well feel proud of. Still 'tis gratifying to know that the young couple are likely to become permanent residents of this locality. They are now enjoying a visit among their friends in Mariposa.
