J. E. Cbeatham, Prin. t Townville, Dec. 8. Siller Weddin;. Editors Intelligencer: One of the most brilliant social events of the sea son was celebrated on Saturday after noon, December Otb, at the hospitable home of Mr, and Mrs. H. J. Armstrong in the village of Lowndesville, the oc casion being the twenty-fifth anniver sary of their happy union in matri mony. The delightful occasion was d y an - nounced by the conventional ced in nil ver print, and at the appointed hour the home of the devoted husband and wife WPS filled with loving friends and relatives. Many were the regrets of absent ones who were unable to attend. All nature seemed ic harmony with the occasion. Instead of a cold, dreary, winter's day, the hours were calm, bright and sunshiny, indicative of the host and hostess who so cordially re ceived 118. At 3 o'clock the guests were invited into the large and spacious dining room. Here, even the Entoure was more than satisfied. The large room was elaborately decorated with ivy, palms and ferns, the. color scheme, silver and white, being carried out. The long table groaned under its weight of turkey, ham, salads, celery, olives, pickles, etc., etc. After this course, beautiful women delicately gave the "finale*' of delicious cakes, creams and syllabub. In the midst of such scenes, with the soft glow of the candle shedding its light upon all, no doubt many bethought themselves in the very presence of Hymen, in the midst of the first nuptials. Many tasteful and handsome pres ents were given to Mr. and Mrs. Arm strong to remind them of the high es teem in which they are held and to cheer them on during the remaining milestones of life's journey. We wish for them, that although at the resurrection there shall be no re lation of husband and wife, and nc marriages snail be celebrated but the marriage of the Lamb, yet then shall be remembered how men and women passed through this state, which is a type of that; and from this sacramental union all holy pairs shall pass to the spiritual and eternal, where love shall be their portion, and joy Bhall crown their heads, and they shall lie in the bosom of J ecus, asa in the heart of God, to eternal ages.
