A pretty event took place at the residence

of the bride's father, Mr. Chris. Switzer,

Sunderland, on Wednesday, Feb. 8th. The

happy young couple who linked their lives

together were Miss Venie Switzer and Mr.

Samuel Collins, only son of Mr. Lewis Collins

of Scott township. At half past 2 o'clock the

bride, leaning on the arm of her father, entered

the drawing-room, attired in a beautiful gown

of pale blue cashmere with silk, lace and

guimpe trimmings. She wore the orange

blossoms and was accompanied by her brides-

maid, Miss Ella Lowes of Omemee, who was

dressed in a similar gown. The beautiful

wedding march was skillfully played by Miss

Ada Baker, cousin of the bride. The groom

was supported by Mr. Fred Dure. Rev. S.

W. Dean of Sunderland performed the cere-

money. Afterward a wedding supper was

served in the dining hall. At 5 o'clcok, amid

showers of rice, and bearing the good wishes

and congratulations of all, Mr. and Mrs.

Collins left for an extended tour to eastern

cities, and on their return will reside in Scott.

Sunderland has lost in Miss Switzer one of its

finest young ladies, highly esteemed for her

winning ways and charming manners.
