      (From Our Own Correspondent.)
      April 23.

      Our English Church was the scene of a pretty wedding last Wednesday when Miss Clara Holzheimer, eldest daughter of Mr. August Holzheimer, of Maroondan, was united in the holy bonds of matrimony to Mr. Sankowsky, of Laidley. Rev. J. Prankerd officiated. We hope the Rev. gentleman did everything in orthodox order, for this is his first attempt at tying matrimonial knots. Miss D. Sankowsky and Miss Lydia Holzheimer carried out the duties of bridesmaids, while the groom's brother, Mr. E. Sankowsky, acted as best man. The bride was attired in a very becoming gown of white lawn, profusely trimmed with real torchon, with a veil end orange blossoms. The church was beautifully decorated by a number of young ladies, under the direction of Mrs. David Walker, and it was thronged with spectators. At the end of the ceremony the guests, numbering over 30, drove in buggies to the residence of the bride's father at Maroondan, where the breakfast awaited them. This was a brilliant function, many speeches and toasts being given. The afternoon and evening were spent in games and musical items, the party not breaking up till a late hour. The bride and groom left by train next day for their new home at Laidley. A considerable number of presents were received, conspicuous amongst which were those given by Mr. and Mrs. Holzheimer, Mr. E. Sankowsky, Mrs. H. Randel, Miss Flo. Randel, and Mrs. Walker. [7]
