An unusually pretty house wedding took place on the 12th inst., at "Spruce Lawn," the home of Mr. and Mrs. Harry Paskins of Rockford, when their eldest daughter, Lizzie Christeen, became the bride of Wilbert Ellis Howard, son of William Howard of the same place, Rev. J. Cavers officiating.

The bride was charmingly gowned in white crepe de chine, satin trimmed with pearls. She wore the customary veil and carried a bouquet of Ophelia roses and maiden-hair fern.

The bride entered the drawing-room on the arm of her father, as the strains of the wedding march were played by Miss Pearl Scott of Hamilton, cousin of the bride. The ceremony was conducted under a beautiful arch of maple leaves and snowballs. Little Miss Emma Irvine accompanied the bride as flower girl.

The groom's gift to the bride was a gold wrist watch, to the pianist a cameo pin, to the flower girl a gold locket and chain. The bride was the recipient of many useful and beautiful presents.

After the ceremony, about 50 of the guests sat down to a dainty repast. After the good things were disposed of, a number of the guests spoke oof the high esteem in which the young couple are held and wished them many happy years together.

Mr. and Mrs. Howard took the train for Cleveland, Ohio, amid a shower of confietti. On their return they will reside on the home farm at Rockford.
