The Methodist parsonage,
Curries, was the scene of a very pretty wedding at 6 o'clock on New
Year's Eve, when Alice Niobe, youngest daughter of of the late Mr. T.
Bowman and Mrs. Bowman, became the bride of Harold Grant Austin, eldest
son of Mr. and Mrs. F. H. Austin of Woodhouse.
The bride looked charming in a
gown of white satin, trimmed with pearls. During the signing of the
register Miss Ida Caldwell played Mendelssohn's wedding march.
After congratulations and best wishes for a long and prosperous life, a
sumptuous wedding dinner was served at the bride's home.
Since living in the vicinity the
bride made many friends, who surprised the couple during the evening
with a miscellaneous shower. The gifts were both numerous and useful,
amongst which were several substantial cheques.
Mr. and Mrs. Austin left for
points south to spend a short honeymoon, the bride travelling in a suit
of brown velour with a picture hat to match.
