The drawing room at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Walter S. McCall, at the Melbourne Hotel, was the scene of a very pretty wedding at seven o'clock, New Year's night, when Catherine Gladys Cameron, youngest daughter of the late W. L. Cameron and Mrs. Cameron of Simcoe, formerly of Toronto, became the bride of Mr. Bruce Wilbur Whitside, only son of the late W. Whitside and Mrs. Whitside of Simcoe, formerly of Delhi.

The ceremony was performed by Rev. Robert Campbell of New York, in the presence of immediate relatives.

To the strains of Mendelssohn's wedding march, played by Miss Whitside, sister of the bridegroom, the bride entered the drawing room artistically arranged with decorative and cut flowers, and was conducted to the alter and given away by her eldest brother, 
Mr. J. F. Cameron of Toronto...

The bridesmaid was Miss Margaret McCall, niece of the bride... The bridegroom was supported by Mr. Wm. L. Steacey of Montreal, formerly of Simcoe...

Mr. and Mrs. Whitside left later for a trip to Detroit and Chicago... On their return they will take up their residence on Colborne Street.

Guests present from out of town included:
Dr. and Mrs. Silcox of Hamilton,
James Bergen of Windsor,
Mr. and Mrs. Denholm of Blenheim,
Mrs. Reed and Mrs. Duncombe of Brantford,
