At the parish church of Broadwater, Worthing, a few days ago, a strange contretemps occurred at a marriage ceremony. The clergyman was reading the service to the couple—the lady being about forty-five, and the groom, a widower for twenty years, about sevon yoars her senior—when suddenly the bride-cleot burst into tears and declared that the ceremony should not proceed, avowing that she had no affection for the man whom she had elected to marry.

He has ju3t vetoed the resignation of a member who assured him he had a safe seat and a good "successor."
