On Monday afternoon the wedding bells were again set ringing. This time it was our old friend, M.C Stott, who was to be made happy in the pos- session of a better half. The ceremony was performed in the Wesleyan Church by the Rev. S. Stephens. The bride, Miss Duggin, is a recent arrival from England, reaching Port Darwin by the ss Airlie on Friday. A good crowd gathered at the church, and after the nuptial knot had been tied the happy couple were treated to showers of rice and cheers as they left the building. Mr. McPherson gave the bride away,
whilst Mr. E. Holmes acted as best
man. A large wedding party assembled at the residence of Mr. McPherson, and the health of the bride and bride- groom drunk in 'fizz'. The guests
were entertained at a breakfast after which dancing was indulged in until the ' wee sma' oors.' The happy couple left for their home at Burrundie by the train; on Tuesday morning. M.C. Stott is a well-known figure in the Territory, having been connected with the N.T. police force for the last six- teen or seventeen years, and during that time has proved himself an able and efficient officer. We wish both
Mr. Stott and his bride nothing but joy, and we are sure the bridegroom's many friends here join us.
