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.
