    • WEDDINGS.
      Rossow-Albrecht. 
      A quiet but pretty wedding was celebrated at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Gigler, Grandchester, on May 8 (writes our Grandchester correspondent), when Mr. Leonard Rossow (third son of Mr. and Mrs. C. A. Rossow, of Calvert) was married to Miss Bertha Albrecht (oldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H. Albrecht, of Blenheim). Pastor Vallett officiated.

      The bride was given away by her father. Misses Adela Rossow and Lena Albrecht acted as bridesmaids, and Messrs. A. Bliesner and Herman Albrecht as best man and groomsman respectively.

      After the ceremony the guests were entertained at a wedding breakfast. A number of useful and valuable presents were received.

      The future residence of Mr. and Mrs. Rossow will be at Tarong, in the Nanango district. [7]
