On Sat., Oct. 1st, at noon, at the home of the bride's sister, Mrs. Eva Burke-Lamb, the marriage of Miss Ella Burke to Mr. Arthur Zavitz was solemnized, Rev. F. C. Elliott officiating.

The house was beautifully decorated for the occasion with golden rod and autumn leaves, the ceremony taking place under an arch of red, green and golden maple boughs.

The bride wore a lovely gown of white silk batiste with French valenchennes and maltese lace trimming and veil of Tulle fastened with rose buds, and she carried white roses and carnations.

She wore, too, a handsome sunburst of pearls, the gift of the groom, who also presented the pianist with a beautiful ivory fan.

The only attendants were two little nephews of the bride, Norman and Theodore Lamb. 

Mrs. P. Geo. Pearce played the Lohengrin and Mendelssohn wedding music and after the ceremony Mrs. Elliott sang "O Promise me."

After a sumptuous wedding dinner Mr. and Mrs. Zavitz left on the six o'clock train for Toronto, the bride traveling in a suit of navy blue satin cheviot.

Among the many beautiful gifts were a handsome mantel clock, a teacher's bible and a purse from the groom's church and school in Trossachs, Sask.

Mr. and Mrs. Zavitz will reside in Kingston.

Among the guests were the Miss Zavitz and Mr. Zavitz, of Watford; Mrs. Buckberrough and Mr. Blaine Buckberrough of Brantford, and Miss Edna Buckberrough of Winnipeg.
