A very pretty June wedding took place at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. W. W. Smith of Mount Pleasant, on Tuesday, 4 Jun 1901, when their daughter, Lena, was united in marriage to Mr. Fred Little of Chicago, only son of Mr. A. M. Little of Waterford.

During the playing of the wedding march by Professor Andrews of Brantford, the bride entered leaning on the arm of her father. The contracting parties then took their places under a beautiful arch of flowers and the wedding ceremony was performed by the Rev. Mr. Burtch of Villa Nova, assisted by Rev. Mr. Gallup of Mount Pleasant.

Miss Winnifed Tobin of Waterford and Miss May Tuttle of Brantford acted as maids of honor.

After the couple had been pronounced man and wife the guests to the number of about 40 sat down to an elaborate luncheon provided by the Gibson's of Brantford.

After the health of the bride had been proposed and responded to in a neat and humorous speech by Mr. Fred Little, the chairman, Mr. Gallup, then called upon several of the guest for speeches and a very pleasant half hour was spent after which the young couple were driven to the T. H. & B. station, accompanied by a number of their young friends, amidst showers of rice and their good wishes.

They took the four o'clock train for Buffalo, where they will take in the Pan-American and other attractions of eastern cities.

The newly married couple were the recipients of many useful and costly presents showing the high esteem in which they are held by their friends in the community.

Mrs. Fred Little will be at home to her friends on Wednesday the 12th inst., at the residence of Mrs. A. M. Little, Waterford, after which Fred and his young wife will leave for the west to make their future home in Chicago.
