      about 78 years of age and had been farming on the Endeavor River for more than 40 years. He had been a member of the Cook Shire Council for a number of years and had acted as
      chairman for several terms. Of an honest, upright and independent nature, deceased proved that farming could be successfully carried on in the Cooktown district. He leaves a wife and a grown up family of sons and daughters to mourn their loss.
      The funeral left the Methodist Church at 10:30 this morning for Jansen, his late residence. The Rev. Lanham was

    On Wednesday afternoon at 4 o'clock, the Methodist Church was crowded to
    witness the marriage between Miss
    Martha Marie Roseler, eldest daughter
    of Mr Dinegots August Roseler of Palmer Road, and Mr Soren Jensen of Endeavor River. The ceremony was conducted by the Rev J. Daniels. The service was of a very bright and interesting character throughout, the choir singlng a very appropriate hymn, and a very pretty wedding march by Mendelssohn was played with great skill by Miss E. Green. The church had been very neatly and tastefully decorated by the young ladies of the choir, the chief feature of which was a marriage bell, designed and decorated by Miss Dean. On the previous evening the members of the
    choir met in the church for the purpose
    of making a presentation to Miss Roseler, in view of her approaching marriage, the present consisted of various ornamental and very useful atrticles. Miss Roseler leaves the church of which she has been a very zealous worker for some years, accompanied by the fraternal regards and best wishes for future happiness of her co-workers.

    ATHERTON, Nov. 28. A pretty wedding was solemnised at the Church of England, Atherton, to-day, when Greta Dorothea, daughter of Mrs. Ward and the late Mr.
    H. Ward, of Atherton, was married to Henry Charles Jensen, of Cairns. The Rev. Bro Peyton, performed the ceremony. The bride was given away by her brother, Mr. H. M. Ward, and maided by Misses Agnes Bock and Gladys Neary. Two tiny girls, Lorna Johns and Gwennie
    Andrews were sweetly pretty flower
    girls. The bridegroom was supported by Mr Robert Ward, brother of the bride. The wedding took place at 11 a.m. The bride looked extremely graceful as she entered the church on the arm of her brother. She wore white duchess satin beautifully trimmed with pin tucks and inlet with angel skin lace. The Eliza-
    bethan corsage with full sleeves was
    of angel skin lace. She wore white
    satin shoes and hose. Her veil, which
    was embroidered tulle was lent for the occasion by Mrs Forrester, of Herberton. It was gathered to her hair with a wreath of orange buds and bloom. She wore a choker and earrings of cut crystal, and carried a big bouquet of white roses, carnations and asparagus fern tied with satin streamers. The two
    bridesmaids wore pale blue mariette
    frilled over satin, with tiny puff sleeves and wide skirts. Blue mittens and wide blue picture hats of fancy straw finished with velvet fowers blue crystals and white velvet shoes made their costumes most attractive. The flower girls wore Victorian frocks in pink mariette frilled from waist to toe. Their hair was banded with pink velvet flowers and their baskets, trimmed with pink carnations, Dorothy Perkins roses and fern. The bridesmaids carried carnations and roses in pink and
    white. Mrs E. H. Ward mother of the bride, wore mastic georgette becomingiy inset with ecru lace and worn with a big mastic straw hat.
    After the ceremony the wedding party adjourned to the upstairs dining room of the Dorothy Café. Pink roses and fern were arched over the three-tièr wedding cake and finished with two big white wedding bells.
    The four-tier cake was made by Mrs.
    Ward and iced at Grainger's. Roses
    and gladioli massed in vases made
    up the rest of the table decorations.
    At the conclusion of a dainty repast
    a short toast list was dealt with, Mr.
    I. R. Crouch presiding.
    After the singing of grace and the
    honoring of the Loyal toast Mr. J.
    McConnell proposed the health of
    "The Bride and Bridegroom" with many pleasant references to the young couple and many good wishes which were echoed by the whole of the company which sang "For they are Jolly Good Fellows" with enthusiasm. The groom responded. Mr.
    Jensen then proposed the toast of
    "The Bridesmaids". Mr. R. Ward responded on their behalf . Mr Andrews proposed The health of "The Mother of the Bride" and Mr H. M. Ward, responded. Mr. C Nielsen proposed the toast for "The Parents of the Bridegroom," who were unfortunately absent. Mr. L. R. Crouch, before asking for the final toast, said: "Ever since I first came to Atherton I have known the Wards. I think a great deal of Mr. Jensen's judgment. Sometimes when we are enjoying ourselves at these functions we are apt to forget the sacredness of the step that is being taken. It makes us feel very pleased to think that these two young people have
    decided to undertake the difficult
    journey of life in this happy way.
    May life give them the best."
    Mr. J. R. Malcolm, proposed the
    toast of "Absent Friend"".
    The cutting of the cake concluded
    the breakfast. Before leaving for
    Cairns the bride changed into an
    elegant frock of royal blue elephant
    skin crepe with a smart hat of straw,
    a handbag and shoes to tone.
    The honeymoon will be spent in Townsville and Sydney, and the couple will reside in Cairns on their return.
    The bride's gift to the groom was a pair of gold sleeve links, and the groom presented the bride with a white cut crystal choker and earrings.
    From the bridegroom, the two little
    flower girls received gold bangles;
    Miss Gladys Neary received a pretty
    handbag and Miss Agnes Bock, a
    crystal necklet.
