Clusters of fragrant frangipanni de- corated the altar and guest pews in St. Augustine's Church, Hamilton, yesterday morning, when the marriage was solemnised of Mr. Alfred Morton and Miss Eleanor Park Pechey. The bridegroom is the son of Mrs. J. G. Rowland, Sydney, and of the late Mr. Mor- ton, London, and the bride is the sec- ond daughter of Mrs. Richard Galley, Ascot, and of the late Mr. W. W. Pechey, Toowoomba. Canon J. B. Arm- strong officiated at the ceremony, and Mr. Stanley Hobson, of Toowoomba (uncle of the bride), presided at the organ. The bride was given away by her step-father (Mr. Richard Gailey), and she wore a gown of point d'esprit net mounted over bridal satin and arranged with a V-shaped yoke of Honiton lace which had been worn by her mother at her wedding. The skirt was very full and was composed of triple tiers finished with ruchings of lace. Her hand-made veil of Venetian applique lace was lent by Miss Atherton Griffiths (Toowoomba), and she carried a shower bouquet of frangipanni and stephanotis Miss Kathleen M'Cullough who was the only bridesmaid made an effective foil for the bridal white in her frock of ninon in rose pink tonings. The bodice was finely pin tucked, and the skirt fell in a full flare from a moulded hip line. Her large hat of pink straw was caught beneath the brim at one side with a pink rose and she carried a Victorian posy of pink rosebuds. Mr. Edward Pechey (the brides brother) was best man. At the conclusion of the ceremony a reception was held at Burlage, Ascot, where Mrs. Richard Gailey received the guests wearing a frock of fawn mariette, patterned in a floral design in coral and fashioned with a collar and godets of plain fawn material. Her hat was of coral straw caught with feather flowers at one side and she carried a posy in coral tonings. The decorations in the reception rooms and on the luncheon tables were carried out with pink begonia and rosebuds. The honeymoon will be spent in a motor tour to Sydney, via the Northern Rivers, and the bride's traveling it was of marine blue Marocain, showing a white blouse, finished with an applique design in gold and brown.

Drowning at Landsborough.
A sad case of drowning occurred two miles from Landsborough about 7 p.m. on March 25. Mr. H. Wrigley, in company with Mr. Harrison, was returning home from Landsborough, and when they arrived nearly at their destination, a creek only dividing them from the former's dwelling, Mrs. Wrigley was waiting on the opposite side of the creek, and she tried to persuade her husband to remain where he was until the water subsided. To this advice he paid no attention, and divesting himself of part of his clothing he went into the creek and attempted to cross, hut unfortunately was drowned in presence of his wife. The body was recovered the following morning early, close to the bank, in very shallow water. No attempt appears to have been made to save him, Harrison stating that he could not swim. The unfortunate man was buried in tho afternoon. He was well known in the district, and an expert swimmer. He leaves a widow and seven orphans, ranging from 11 years to three months, to mourn their loss. They are left almost destitute. A meeting was held on March 26, at 8 o'clock, at Mr. Jolly's hotel, to consider the above case, and collections were made, amounting to £11 8s. 6d. A subscription list has been started, which will be kept open till April 9 to enable all those who were not at the meeting to subscribe.
