The most interesting" subject we have to
handle to-day is that of carpets, and none
can be more opportune. Indeed, the carpet
question is a good deal more important than
any other domestic matters of the dy, now.
Hut, after all, a great deal of this worry the
housekeepers indulge la on this question can
be saved them if they vi ill carry their wants
to H. J. Gii.i.EX. It is needless to say that
everything in this lino cau bohadatliii.i.KN'.",
nor is it necessary to catalogue his stock. He
has gone into the carpet trade better prepared
than ever to meet all requirements of, the
trade; and it is morally certain that from his
stock, the largest and most complete in the
city, every want can be supplied.
But having the stock does not always solve
the entire problem. Most people when they
want u carpet "want it bad." The house is
all torn up; everything must be in disorder
until the carpet is down; life is always a bur
den to the whole household until the carpet is
down. The chief causo of the delay is get
ting the carpet made. In the busy season this
always drags, and not only customers but
the house itself has been annoyed to death in
the busy season by the sheer inability to till
orders with any degree of satisfaction. This,
by the great number of sales inude since the
season opened, had become already so very
unsatisfactory to Mr. Gillen that ho was com
pellert to seek a remedy, and of course he
found it, ono tluit lorevcr cnus delay, una
puts it in the power of the house to tell to a
minute when a carpet can belaid; and not
only that, but has made it possible for him to
repeat the feat accomplished this week of
inttimi, mukhifj and Uiijimja hirye lirustch car-
jxt within t)i hmir ajtir tht order vn bjt!
something never before accomplished here
and possibly by no other house in Ottawa!
The fact is Mr. Gillen lias secured a carpet-
sewing machine, which sews the heaviest
moquette or the thinnest ingrain. It not only
sews faster but better than any hand sewlug.
By its use all carpets ordered in the morning
can be laid the same day, and parties from
the country can leove their orders on ar-
riving and after doing their other trailing can
take their carpet home early the same after.

lie will readily see the advantage of such a
condition of things, and should the more ap
preciate it since carpets will be made and
made better than they can be by hand, with
out extra expense for the next 00 days. All
.ire invited to call and see this novel piece of
machinery and examine the work it does.
In connection with the carpet stock the
house is showing now a large line of all

The store was literally covered aud packed
with these goods, and such an array of hand
some Parisian flowers, elegantly trimmed
goods, laces of all descriptions, &c, made the
exhibition one well worth viewing. The open

A private entertainment was given in Turn
Hall last Sunday night by the actors' section
of the Turn Society. The name of the play
produced on the stage was "The Thunder
storm iu the Mill." The best part was in the
hands of C. Hentrich, but the others did well
and were rapturously applauded. After the
curtain fell in the last act the chairs were
removed, and all enjoyed themselves dancing.
These entertainments are to be kept up fort
nightly. The one last Sunday night was the
finest the society has had iu many years.
Those Americans who understand the tier
man language, and would liku to attend
should apply to the committee on invitations
for tickets, as no one will be permitted to
attend outside of the society, who has not been
specially invited.

SciiKEEii-WvLiE. Married on the evening
of April iiJ, at the residence of the bride's
parents, Mr. K. W .Schreeb, of Ottawa, to Miss
Jauette, eldest daughter of Mr. W. V. Wylie,
of Waltlniin. At S o'clock, the hour appointed
for the ceremony, the bridal party was ushered
into the cast parlor to the strains of Mendel
sohn's wedding march, Miss Jessie presiding
at the piano. The parlors were tastefully de
corated with )lunts and flowers. Under an
arch, festooned with evergreen, the bridal
pair took their places, Mi.-s Fanny Jones and
Mr. John Wylie, brother of the bride, being
attendants. After a few appropriate words the
Rev. Mr. Leard pronounced them man and
wife. The friends then passed around to of
fer congratulations and good wishes, after
which the company repaired to the dining
room, where they were bountifully enter
tained. The bride was elegantly attired in
golden brown silk and brocade velvet, with
natural flowers. The bridesmaid wore brown
cashmere, with velvet applique trimmings.
About sixty guests were present, among
whom was Uncle John Carrie, from England.
The occasion was doubly interesting, being
the wedding anniversary of the bride's pur
ents. The number of beautiful uud costly
presents displayed gave evidence of the great
regard lu which the bride is held by her
relatives and friends. A beautiful silver wa.
ter service wus presented by the church in
which she lias been organist for several years.
After a very pleasant evening speut in mu
sic and social enjoyment, the bridal pair left

rent year. The nest day the board met at
the same place, settle ! in full with P. Looney
who turned over to his successor, Mr. Mc
Permott. the sum of $1,979.83. This was
the largest amount ever turned over bj any
treasurer of the board at the completion of
his term of office. During the past ten yean
$300 was the highest amount paid over by
any out-going treasurer. These facts show
Mr. Looney up in the most favorable light,
and is a record that the township may well
be proud of as coming from eneof its officers.
