The bride wore an elebrocaded silk, made in gant the latest style, in fact we could say as they fawn-colore- d do of brides nowadays, she was elegantly gowned."; Brother McDonald wore the usual dress suit, and there were many warm and hearty expressions of good will and esteem." The calt for the banquet hall came and the guests wereushered upstairs where in the spacious apartment five long tables were arranged for the large part . At the head of the center table were the guests of honor and President Josenh F. Smith and the family of the honored couple.

President Joseph F. Smith pronounced the blessing "upon the abundant feast, and a spirit of unity and good fellowship pervaded the gathering. After the banquet tables were cleared away and a sort of program of exercises in charge of Bishop C. W. Nibley, opened with singing a hymn and a brief address from President Joseph F. Smith who in a very happy manner expressed his good feeling for Brother and Sister McDonald and pleas-u- re at having them his gue3ts on such an auspicious occasion. Bishop 0. F. Whitney recited a verse as a prelude to his remarks: 6 'tis not when riches and spiendor surround us, lhat Inendship aud friends can be put to me test, but when affliction's cold presence hath bound us, We find which the hearts are that love us the best.
