    The room was nicely decorated by the friends of the young couple, a wedding bell being suspended over the bridal party. The bride, who was given away by her father, looked very nice in a gown of rich cream Japenese silk. The blouse was made with a transparent yoke of rich silk Maltese insertion, and small painted spaulettes, edged with silk ruche sleeves, puffed with deep cuffs and trimmed with bands of rich Maltese insertion. The skirt, falling full with a deep fringe at hem, and slightly trained, was also trimmed, was also trimmed with a rich Maltese insertion.

    The bridesmaid were Miss Sophie Thomsen, sister of the bride and Miss Vera Bargenquast, sister of the bridegroom. The best man was Mr. Hermann Bargenquast, brother of the bridegroom, and groomsman, Mr. Albert Thomsen, brother of the bride. After the ceremony the bridal party, led the war amid a shower of rice and rose leaves, to the large booth erected near the house, where the wedding breakfast was partaken of.

    The large table was laden with all manner of good things, and a large number sat down, making quite a spectacle. The beautiful three-tier wedding cake in the centre, setting off the whole scene.

    After the breakfast the quests were asked to charge their glasses, and a very neat little speech, the father of the bridegroom proposed the health of the newly wedded couple. Mr. Bargenquast, on behalf of his wife and self, thanked all those who were present for all their many good wishes. Over sixty guests were present, and after the breakfast amused themselves in different ways until evening, when dancing was indulges in
    until the small hours of the morning.

    The presents were valuable and numerous, among the number being a handsome cheque from the bridegroom's parents. The bridegroom's gifts to the bridemaids were to Miss Vera Bargenquast a ring; to miss Sophie Thomsen a brooch.

    Mr. and Mrs. Bargenquast left by train for Maryborough, where the honeymoon was spent. The travelling dress was a violet cloth trimmed white speckled white silk braid and violet buttons.

The church was beautifully decorated with gerberas and roses by friends Of the bride. Rev. Father Healy officiated at the ceremony. As the brjde entered the church on the arm of Mr P. Cox, who subsequently gave her away (owing to the absence of her father), she looked charming in a gown of heavy white georgette, with fully fashioned sleeves, pintucked to mould into the figure, the skirt having godets , and panels of lace, which fell to the floor in grace full folds. Her sweeping veil was of embroidered tulle, worn cap fashion, held in position with a coronet of orange blossoms. The bride carried a trailing bouquet of eucharist lilies, roses and maiden hair fern, tied with white satin streamers to which was attached a silver horse-shoe. White gloves and shoes completed the bride's toilette.
    Miss Eileen Egan, a close friend of the bride, attended her as bridesmaid, wearing an ankle length frock of pink kabe crepe, faggoted at the neckline with open frilled flared sleeves. The skirt was pintucked to mould into the figure with godets in the skirt, which fell into tiny folds at the hem. She wore hat, gloves and shoes to tone and carried a bouquet of pink roses, gerberas and maiden hair fern, tied with pink satin streamers.
    Little Miss Mary Matthew attended as flower girl, and wore an ankle length frock of blue georgette, trimmed on the skirt with narrow blue ribbon. She wore a blue tulle veil, held to the head with a coronet of tiny blue forget-me-nots and carried a basket of sweet peas, carnations, and forget-me-nots. The bridegroom was at tended by Mr. "Bill" Egan as best man.
    After the ceremony the guests motored to Crowe's Cafe, Childers, where the reception was held. Mrs. Matthew received the guests wearing a smart frock of figured kabe crepe, with accessories to tone. Her posy was of pansies and asparagus fern. She was assisted by Mrs. J. Bargenquast, wearing a frock of figured sheer romaine with hat and shoes to tone, also carrying a posy of pansies and fern. The chief attraction of the beautifully laid tables was a three-tier wedding cake, which was purchased from McDonnell and East Ltd., Brisbane. Mrs. A.
