...Wedding Bells

On Wednesday last at the residence of the bride's father. Mr. A. Seed. Miss Minnie Seed of Tregarva was united in the holy estate of matrimony, to Mr. Marvin W. Colton of Regina. Rev. J. A. Carmichael officiating. The marriage took place at 3 o'clock p. m.. and the afternoon was passed very pleasantly by singing, recitations, extemporaneous addresses, music on stringed instruments, mouth organ, etc. After some two or three hours had passed away pleasantly in this manner, the next thing on the programme was the rattling of china, the lengthening of extension tables, the tender footsteps of the fair domestic's as they hastened to load the tables with the luscious viands, and the next event, second in importance to anything that had transpired as yet, was the participating in the sumptuous repast which had been carefully and artistically provided by the ladies.

After dinner had been served, and while the guests still remained seated around the table, J. W. Ridd made a few congratulatory remarks respecting the bride, and proposed that the guests present convey their congratulations and also their best mattes to the bride and bridegroom by drinking a cup of tea to their honour. This was done, after which Mr. Colton heartily resounded. Mr. Isaac Sutton then proposed that the congratulations of the guests present be conveyed to the ladies, and that their health be drunk in tho same manner. This was done, and Mr. A. Daykin was asked to respond in behalf of the ladies, which he did in a very gentlemanly manner. After , dinner was all over, the party again engaged in music, singing, recitations &c., until an unknown hour, after winch all returned to their homes, feeling, that they had enjoyed themselves to their utmost capacity, but none more desirous that another wedding should occur the next day, as rest was the most desirable. The bride was the recipient of some very handsome presents.
