FRANCIS-DOBLE.-From the Canning-

ton Gleaner we take the following:-One

of those interesting social events which

sets society circles astir, took place in St.

Mary's church, Sunderland, on Wednes-

day afternoon at 2 o'clock, the occasion

being the marriage of Mr. David Francis

of Derryville, and Miss Cora A. Doble of

Sunderland. Long before the hour for

the ceremony to begin the church was

packed with invited guests from Mon-

treal, Toronto, Hamilton, Cannington,

Sunderland, and other places. The

church was tastefully and beautifully

decorated with flowers, etc., for the event.

At two o'clock the bridegroom and his as-

sistants, Mr. G.A. Rex of Wycliffe Col-

lege, Toronto, and Mr. John Doble,

brother of the bride, took their places at

the altar, and were immediately followed

by the bridal party, and, as the bride,

leaning on the arm of her father, marched

to the altar of bymen, looked perfectly

charming in her wedding costume. As

the party proceeded up the aisles of the

church the choir sang the hymn, "The

Voice that Breathed O'er Eden." The

bride wore a handsome and elegantly

trimmed dress of cream silk and plush,

full veil, orange blossoms, and carried a

magnificent bouquet of roses. The brides-

maids were Miss Madill of Toronto, niece

of Mr. Frank Madill, M.P., for North

Ontario, and Miss Beatrice Branning of

Uxbridge, and were dressed in cream

henrietta cloth and carried a bouquet

each of roses. The maid of honor was

little Miss Lula Doble, sister of the bride.

She was tastefully dressed in cream silk

and plush, and carried a beautiful bou-

quet of lillies of the valley. The mar-

riage ceremony was performed by the

Rev. B. Bryan of the church of Epihpany,

assisted by the Rev. A. Carswell, M.A.,

of Cannington. After the ceremony had

been completed the party drove to

"Maple Grove," the beautiful residence

of Mr. and Mrs. Doble, where a grand

reception was held, after which the in-

vited guests sat down to the wedding

breakfast. The tables were laden with

everything that good taste could suggest.

Many were the compliments extended to

the young couple. Among the guests

present were the following:-Mr. and

Mrs. Madill of Toronto; Mr. McKenzie

of Montreal; Mrs. Brabezon of Toronto;

Mr. and Mrs. McCully of Toronto; Mr.

and Mrs. Chas E. Francis of Cannington;

Mr. and Miss Rooney of Uxbridge; Mrs.

Wm. Francis, Derryville; Mr. and Mrs.

Jos. Ruddy of Gravenhurst; Mr. Jas. Glen-

dinning, MLA, and Mrs. Glendinning of

Vroomanton; Mr. and Mrs. Jos. Thomp-

son of Sunderland; Mr. and Mrs. Albert

Francis of Derryville; Mr. Jas Doble of

Sunderland; Mr. and Mrs. John S. Braba-

zon of Sunderland; Mr. W. Francis and

Miss Francis of Derryville; Miss Eliza

Raynard of Scott; Mr. Thos. Ruddy of

Victoria Corners; Mrs (Dr) McDermott,

of Sunderland; Mr. and Mrs. R. Edwards

of Derryville; Mrs. Jas. Ruddy, Mr and

Mrs. David Purvis of Cannington, and

others. The presents were both costly

and numerous, and were a token of the

esteem in which the bride was held by

her many friends and relatives. The

Sunderland citizens' Band drove to the

house after the marriage and serenaded

the company, and also escorted them to

the evening train. The usual supply of

rice was on hand, and the young couple

will ever remember the occasion. Mr.

and Mrs. Francis took the six o'clock

train at Sunderland for Montreal and

other places of interest in the east. They

expect to be away about two weeks. A

large number of the guests accompanied

them as far as Blackwater. - THE WARD-

ER joins with their many friends in wish-

ing them long life and prosperity.
