On Wednesday afternoon at 1:00 the house of our townsman Daniel Kellock, Collector of Inland Revenues, was the scene of one of those joyous social events which are so interesting to the old and young of our communities.  This was the marriage of the second daughter Alicia Kellock to Mr. George R. McCarthy of the firm Warren and McCarthy, hardware merchants.  The ceremony was performed by Rev. James Ross, B.D., in the presence of many friends of the bride and groom.  The bride was assisted by Miss Maggie McDonald and the groom was helped through the ceremony by John A. Stewart.  After the ceremony the wedding party sat down to a luxurious dinner after which the bridal couple took the east bound train for Ottawa and other places where friends of Mr. McCarthy reside.  The presents to the popular and youthful bride were numerous, costly and dazzling in their bounty and strange to say that as numerous as they were scarcely two articles were duplicated.  Mr. McCarthy is one of our most esteemed citizens of the younger generation and we congratulate him on securing so charming a bride.

The Gazette publishes the marriage of Robert Black, son of James Black, ex-Reeve of Ramsay and Phoebe Galbraith, daughter of the late Mr. Daniel Galbraith, M.P. Almonte.  The ceremony took place at Mrs. Galbraith’s residence and was performed by Rev. Mr. Grant of St. Andrew’s Church.
