ORANGE BLOSSOMS. On Wednesday last a very pretty ■wedding was celebrated in the Methodist Church, the contracting parties! being Mr Francis Boyland and Miss- Frances (Fanny) Smith (daughter oi Mr Paul Smith. The Rev. Mr Hunt officiated, and Miss B. White was organist. The bride wore the usual orthodox white satin veil, and was given away by her father. Mr Charles Horne acted as best man, and Miss Barbara Walker, niece of the bride, looked charming as bridesmaid. After the bride and bridegroom had been made one an adjournment was - made to Mr James Walker’s residence whert the wedding breakfast was partaken of, and. toasts and speeches occupied a pleasant hour or two. The happy couple left by the afternoon train for the Lakes district, accompanied by the congratulations of their many friends. GOOD BYE. A very pleasant function took place in the Methodist Church last week, the occasion being the presentation of a. handsome hanging lamp, and hearth-rug to Mrs R. F. Dawson, by members of the church on the occasion of her departure to take up her. residence in Invercargill. The Rev. Mr Hunt made the presentation, and spoke in flattering terms of the good work ami energy displayed by Mrs Dawson in matters connected with the church. Mr. W. J. Grant, on behalf of Mrs Dawson, returned thanks for the many good wishes of those present. BREVITIES. The first of the new season’s grain is coming to hand, so that grain stores will probably be busy 'for a month or two. The grain looks just as well as in former years. I noticed by the s.s. Mahenb on Monday an old Blul'fibe as a passenger, in the person of Mr H. Joosten. His many friends will be pleased to know that he is doing well in Wellington. The local brass band are gradually regaining some of their old members, though Mr W. Newman still holds aloof. Me Informs me that after hearing the best bands at Christchurch, he does not like to listen to an inferior combination. I would advise him to take up his old position, and use his influence to improve the combination. Our election for Mayor ttikes place next month, I hear there is likely to be more than one candidate. Our bowling club are in receipt of their colours —made to order —in the shape of nice new green coats, and the club look very nice when arranged in their costume on the green. Have you been to Christchurch ? It is almost unnecessary to ask any of of our residents. Anybody who is anybody has been there some time during the Exhibition.
