In Beamsville, on June 5, Calvary Church was the scene of the wedding of Viola Anne, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Tosh, Arthur, Ontario, and Mr. Alec Henry Earle, son of Mr. and Mrs. J.H. Earle, Grimsby, with the Rev. D. Benson officiating.

Given away by her father, the bride wore a gown of white figured marquisette, her long veil caught to a headdress of orange blossoms. She carried red roses and lilies-of-the-valley.

The bridal attendants were: Mrs. Aaron Bast, of Kitchener, sister of the bride, wearing mauve sheer over taffeta, with bouquet of harmonizing sweet peas and lilies-of-the-valley; Miss Anna Earle, of Grimsby, sister of the groom, who, as bridesmaid, was in yellow, with similar harmonizing nosegay; while little Ruth Benson, of Beamsville, the flower girl, was dressed in blue net over taffeta, and carried sweet peas. They all wore matching headdresses. Master Melvin Bast, nephew of the bride, was ring-bearer, Mr. Lloyd Beamer, Grimsby, was best man, and those ushering were Messrs. Gordon and Harry Tosh, of Arthur, brothers of the bride.

Miss Mary Barreth, the organist, accompanied Mr. and Mrs. J. Cheshire, of Hamilton, who sang.

About 65 guests attended the reception afterward, the bride's mother receiving in a grey and white costume with pale mauve roses in her corsage, assisted by the groom's mother in black with touches of green, and corsage of pink roses.

The couple left for Muskoka and other northern points for a honeymoon, after which they will reside in this city. Going away, the bride, was attired in powder blue, with fuchsia shortie coat. The groom's parents observed their 30th wedding anniversary on the same day.
