    • DEAR--TRONC.
      A PRETTY wedding was celebrated at Mount Marrow Farm, Kirchheim (at the residence of the bride's father), on Wednesday, the 16th instant, the contracting parties being Mr. Joseph Samuel Dear, second son of Mr. Samuel Dear, of Ipswich (but lately of Ma Ma Creek), and Miss Bertha Tronc, third daughter of Mr. Henry Tronc, of Kirchheim. The marriage ceremony was performed by the Rev. R. H. S. Hay, of Laidley. The bride, who looked charming, was given away by her father, and was neatly attired in a cream voile up-to-date costume, made at the establishment of Messrs. Cribb and Foote, of Ipswich. Instead of wreath and veil she wore a hat to match. The two bridesmaids, Miss Von der Groeben and Miss Annie Tronc (sister of the bride), looked remarkably well in their raiment, which was very appropriate for the occasion. The bride and bridesmaids also each wore a gold brooch, the gift of the bridegroom. Mr. M. Tronc, brother of the bride, acted in the capacity of groomsman. After the nuptial knot had been duly tied the happy couple were stormed with showers of rice from their many well- wishers, and the room was soon strewn with the grain in great profusion. With many very willing helpers the wedding breakfast was laid in one of the capacious buildings, and soon a start was made to sample the eatables which were so tastefully prepared and arranged on the large tables, around which the bride's and bridegroom's relations and many friends from the districts of Ma Ma Creek and Ipswich were seated. The room was adorned with greenery, which lent an exceedingly picturesque aspect to the place. The toasts usual on such occasions were all duly honoured, the Rev. Mr. Hay presiding. The bride and bridegroom were the recipients of many useful and valuable presents, which are as follows :-Mr. and Mrs. Kelleher, beautiful tea-set ; Mr. and Mrs. Haley, silver butter-cooler ; Mrs. Groeben, set butter-dishes ; Mr. L. Tronc, silver cruet ; Miss A. Tronc, pair vases ; Miss Tronc, bed valence &c. ; Miss Qualischefski, bed valence, &c. ; Mrs. A. S. Philp (Gatton), clock and half-dozen dessert-knives ; Mrs. A. Philp (Ma Ma Creek), lamp and vegetable-dish; Mr. Tessman (Nanango), silver cut glass pickle-jar ; Mrs. S. Dear (Ipswich), half-dozen knives and forks ; Mr. H. A. Tronc, Singer sewing-machine ; Miss Beattie, vase and jelly-dish ; Miss Weigand, fruit-dish and butter-dish ; Mr. and Mrs. J. F. Rea, silver and gold jam-dish ; Mrs. Tronc (Marburg), sugar-dish and butter-dish ; Miss E, Tronc, two vases and tea-pot ; Miss A. Muller, cruet ; Miss A. Kroger, table linen and fruit-dish. The Misses Poulsen's present took the form of money, as did likewise those of Mrs. Althaus, Misses Krebs, Messrs. W. F. Retchlag, J. Hoeffler, and J. Schlect. Mrs. J. D. Philp (Ma Ma Creek), presented a toilet-set and dozen tumblers ; Miss A. Weigand, tea-pot ; Miss B. Weigand, butter-basin ; Mr. J. Kroger, half-dozen knives and forks ; Mrs. and Misses Klupfel, jam-dish, cruet, and biscuit-barrel ; Miss Forrie Foster (Ipswich), fruit-stand ; Miss Muller (Nanango), two vases and two glass butter-basins ; Mrs. Bassett, two glass butter-dishes ; Mr. Bassett, pair of canaries ; Mrs. Purdon, half-dozen china cups and saucers ; Mr. and Mrs. Lutz, silver pickle-jar and vase ; Mr. C. Cronin (Ipswich), carving knife and fork ; Mr. and Mrs. Pollock (Ma Ma Creek), silver butter-knife, silver jam-spoon, and silver pickle-fork, all enclosed in an elaborate case. In the evening dancing was rigorously indulged in, the last batch of guests leaving the place just as King Sol was making his appearance over the horizon. On the whole, a more agreeable and pleasant time would be hard to find. Everything went like clock-work from beginning to end ; consequently, one and all departed with pleasant thoughts. The bride and bridegroom have since taken up their residence in Whitestone, where the usual vocation will be followed. [5]
