- A very pretty June wedding took place

Thursday of last week at the residence of

Mr. Wm. Walters, Wellington-st., when

his eldest daughter, Blanche L., was mar-

ried to Mr. J.W. Lyons, G.T.R. train

despatcher of this town, the officiating

clergyman being the Rev. S. J. Shorey,

pastor of Cambridge-st. Methodist church.

The bride was very becomingly gowned

in cream grenadine silk with trimmings

of chiffon and moire ribbon, and carried

a large boquet of Marechal Neil roses. The

bridesmaids were Miss Cora, sister of the

bride, and Miss Frankie Lawrence, of

Campbellford, the former wearing a pretty

dress of organdie muslin, trimmed with

green, with large boquets of red roses, and

the latter a dress of the same material,

trimmed with hellotrope and carrying a

boquet of blush roses. The groom was

ably supported by Messrs. W.R. Widdess

and P.G. Burgess. The house was very

prettily decorated with honeysuckle fes-

toonings, interspersed with roses, and a

bank of foliage plants almost filled one

side of the room. After the ceremony the

guests, about fifty in number, sat down to

a dainty wedding repast, after which the

bride held a short reception for the mem-

bers of the Cambridge-st. Methodist church

choir, of which both the bride and groom

were members. The presents, consisting

principally of silverware, dainty china and

fancy work, made an elaborate display.

The happy young couple left, amid showers

of rice and old shoes, for the west by the

6.10 train. On their return to Lindsay they

will take up their residence in a cosy home

on Colborne-st. Among the guests were

noticed the following from out of town:

Mr. and Mrs. Lyons, Sunderland: Mrs.

Crawford, Toronto: Miss Easton, Toronto:

Miss Lyons, Markdale; Mrs. Crofton and

son, Toronto.
