N. McIntyre, Napanee, were waiting.  The ceremony was performed by the Rev. E.

BURLINGHAM - EVANS - Mr. Roscoe Burlingham and Miss Rossie Evans were married at the home of the bride’s parents in the forenoon of Wednesday, June 5.  Rev. Mr. DePencier of Wellington, tied the knot in the presence of only the immediate relatives.  They left on a wedding trip to New York City and expect to return to Wellington about the first of July to spend a couple of months after which they will make their home in Toronto.  Mr. Burlingham represents A.M. Thorne and company of Toronto and is easily the handsomest and one of the most popular travellers on the road.  His bride is a daughter of Mrs. W. H. Wright of Wellington and in her wedding dress, a going away suit of brown with hat to match, looked the pick of the village belles.  Congratulations to Mr. Burlingham.

BUTTER - BROWN -  On the  4th inst., at the residence of the Hermance Brothers, Adolphustown, by Rev. A. C. Chambers, Mr. Alexander Butter to Sarah J. Brown, all of Adolphustown.  “Though they started, adrift from bachelors’ hall, On the choppy and changing sea of marriage,  Let none that an evil omen call., Or the promise of future bliss disparage;  For Alex just did the thing up Brown., When the solemn bridal vows he uttered;  And Sarah, in getting him all for her own, Knows well which side of her bread is Butter.”

 

Married - At Adolphustown, on Feb 4th, Mr. Alex Rutter to Sarah J. Brown, all of Adolphustown.
