Eden." The bride, who was given

in the drawing room, were unusually
numerous and costly., To enumerate
them, Mr. Editor, would make
too great a demand on your space.
They amply demonstrated the esteem

Later in the evening, Mr. and Mrs.
Parker left, amid showe'rs of con-
tetti, for their new home In the Blayney

by the Rev. J. B. Penman in a compl'mentary
speech, and was suitably
acknowledged by the recipient As

departure of such a lady will be very
