    (From our own correspondent)
    July 20.
    Yesterday, the 19th instant, was practically a holiday among the farmers to this part of the Mary, when many from Greenwood, Greenhouse, Greenland, Olivegreen, Evergreen, and adjacent farms, to the number of about 70, wended their way to Goorah Farm to witness the celebration of the marriage of Peter Christian Andersen, a progressive farmer, to Catherine Maria, eldest daughter of Mr. A. Jessen, of Goorah dairy. The nuptial knot was arranged by Rev J H Hansen, of Maryborough, when all dispersed to enjoy themselves at rounders, skittles, and other games for a while. The guests were called to the marriage feast, where ample justice was done to the viands enticingly laid out by Mesdames Jessen, Wade, and Bundesen.
    Three relays having been discussed, an adjournment was made to a spacious new barn where the visitors tripped it merrily till daylight did appear. At intervals the new married couple were toasted, when congratulations and good wishes were expressed for their future welfare, for they are the kind of people who form the backbone of our country, sir, and it is a thousand pities we have not many more of the same kind of steady country farmers, who seem undaunted by floods, droughts, and vermin, and who work themselves up by indomitable energy, and do not wait to be spoon fed by any Government.

    OBITUARY
    MRS K. M. ANDERSEN
    Death after a short illness yesterday, removed a well-known and popular lady from the community, in the person of Mrs Katherine Maria Andersen in her 63rd year. Of a bright, cheerful personality and an open hearted and generous nature Mrs Andersen made a legion of friends in the city and district. Born at Goorah, in the Tiaro district, where her family engaged in farming and grazing, she had experience of the hardships of the pioneering days.
    After her marriage to Mr Peter Andersen she resided for a time in Tiaro and then helped her husband in his commercial activities in Maryborough. He husband died shortly after retirement from business about 11 years ago, and since then Mrs Andersen had lived in retirement at her home in Ferry Street. She leaves three daughters and two sons to mourn their loss: Messrs Anders Lars Andersen (Manager, Wondai Butter factory), Frederick Jessen Andersen (also of Wondai), Mrs A. S. F. Adams (Maryborough) and Misses Alice and Catherine who resided with their mother. A large family of sisters and brothers also survive, the brothers being: Messrs Andrew Frederick Jessen, Hans Peter Jessen, Sophas Jessen, Ludwig Jessen, Jack Jessen and one step-brother, Mr William Jessen. The sisters are Mesdames L. Bundesen, S. Wade, M. O'Leary, C. Lochran, L. Strenzel and the step-sisters, Mesdames E. Jones and Alice Quail. One son-in-law, Mr Arthur Adams, and two daughters-in-law, Mesdames A. L. Andersen and F. J. Andersen, also survive, as well as two grandchildren, Peter and Mildred Andersen. The funeral will leave St Paul's Church of England at 10 o'clock this morning for the Maryborough Cemetery.
