An event of interest took place recently at the home of Isaac Rush of Norwich Gore, when his daughter, Flossie Ellen, became the wife of Ross Wilfrid Slaght, a young farmer of LaSalette. The ceremony was performed on the verandah of the bride's home in the presence of about 60 guests.

Miss Rush made a charming bride in a dress of white georgette crepe over white silk, and carrying a shower bouquet of sweet peas and gladioli. She was given away by her father and attended by her sister Cora, who also looked well in a dress of maize georgette crepe over satin and carrying a bouquet of sweet peas.

Little Miss Evelyn Armour, niece of the bride, dressed in white shadow lace over pink silk, and carrying a basket of sweet peas, acted as flower girl. Alex. Slaght, brother of the groom, acted as best man. Miss Ethel Oatman of Tillsonburg, played the wedding march and other music. Rev. Mr. Ottowell of Otterville performed the ceremony.

The young couple motored to Brantford, accompanied by about 20 of the young guests. After a short honeymoon at Buffalo and Crystal Beach, Mr. and Mrs. Slaght will reside at LaSalette.
