Cadman

(Anniversary)

 

GOLDEN WEDDING – Golden weddings are not common, and that of Wm. H. and Mrs. Cadman, celebrated on October 26th, was unusual even among the few.  The bride and groom, while aware of the day, were intending to spend it as not greatly out of the ordinary, the excitement of fifty years ago somewhat forgotten. But the family was of a different mind, for having all arrangements completed, they arrived during the morning with decorations for house and tables and with wedding breakfast all prepared.  The bride and groom were completely taken by surprise but lent themselves to the spirit of the occasion, and soon the home was charmingly decorated in golden yellow and the table spread.  The happy couple were the recipients of cordial good wishes and the darkness of  the weather could make no inroads into the sunshine of the happy gathering.  The family consists of four daughters, Mrs. (Capt.) Bloomfield, Mrs. Fred Allison, Mrs. W. R. Fretts and Mrs. T. M. Asselstine, all of whom with their husbands and children, were present.  Only relatives and a few close friends had been invited.  In proposing the toast to the bride and groom, their Pastor, Rev. C.W. DeMille, referred to their continued health, strength and youthful spirits and that their family were all alive and present.  Responding for his bride and himself, Mr. Cadman spoke of his surprise and happiness and expressed thanks for such unbounded good wishes.  W. F. Hall, Esq., a friend of over fifty years, spoke of the unusual happiness of an unbroken family, and all within easy reach.  He voiced the prayer of every one present, in his hope that as age was surely coming “at even time may there be light.” Each guest carried away as a remembrance one of the fifty golden wedding bells that had been part of the decorations.  If a tithe of the good  wishes are realized, years of peace are before the happy couple.

The wedding was a quiet one, only a few of the immediate friends of the two families being present. The bride looked charming in a beautiful blue cloth Eaton suit with white silk shirred waist, the handsome couple being unsupported by either bridesmaid nor best man.
