MARRIAGE OF MR. J. B. TAYLOR

A first-Class [What is that?—Ed. S. A.] matrimonial event (says a telegram from Johannesburg, dated March 10, to a Kimberley paper) came off at St. Mary’s this morning, when Mr. J. B. Taylor, Pretoria, member of the House of Eckstein, led to the altar Miss Mary Gordon, daughter of Dr. Charles Gordon, M.D., of Pietermaritzburg. The weather, though by no means brilliant, was at any rate a great improvement upon that of a few days previous, and did not absolutely debar the youth and beauty of the Camp from sporting the smart frocks which had been specially made for the occasion. The wedding took place from the residence of Mr. H. A. Rogers, which had been temporarily enlarged by the addition of a couple of annexes for the occasion. The Church was thronged as it had never been thronged for such an event, long before eleven o’clock, the appointed time of the bridal party’s arrival. Mr. Taylor arrived to the minute attended by Mr. Bettelheim and Mr. Eckstein. The bride appeared about half-past eleven, on the arm of her father, her single bridesmaid being Miss Taylor, sister of the bridegroom. Two little nieces, Phyllis and Dorothy Rogers, were likewise in attendance. The bride was robed in a sweet dress from Duncan’s of Cape Town, the skirt and bodice of which were composed of cream merveillieux, veiled with chiffon, with broad chiffon flounces at the base, a train of handsome brocade fell from the shoulder, and there was of course the usual spray of orange blossoms. The wedding veil, of Honiton lace, had been worn by the bride’s mother on the occasion of her marriage. Miss Taylor wore a charming dress of brocaded silk, pale heliotrope, with pink trimmings. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. F. H. Fisher, assisted by the Rev. J. Darragh. The party afterwards adjourned to Mr. H. A. Rogers’ residence, where the usual toasts were honoured. The cake was a chef d’oeuvre in art of this description, and elicited universal commendation for the makers, Messrs. Dix and Son, of Capes Town. Shortly before one o’clock the newly-wedded couple left amid a shower of favours for Irene Estate, where they purpose spending their honeymoon. The bridegroom’s presents to the bride included a silver-mounted dressing bag, gold watch and chain, diamond and sapphire ring, diamond aigrette, diamond and sapphire bracelet and diamond bracelet. The bridesmaids received a gold bangle with monogram “J.B.T.,” a present also from the bridegroom. The presents were very numerous.

ATTEMPT TO ROB THE NATAL TREASURY

A most determined attempt was recently made to rob the Colonial Treasury in the Court Gardens, Pietermaritzburg. P. C. Edwards, when on his round of inspection, discovered that an attempt had been made to burst the door, and also to force the bars of one of the windows. A heavy crowbar, sharply pointed at one end, which belongs to a tank close by, was found in the vicinity of the building, and had evidently been used. The windows are all firmly barred, and the bars are let into a sill composed of cement. The thief or thieves first chipped away the cement from the bottom cross-rail which connects the bars together, and getting the crowbar under it attempted to force the whole out of its position. He evidently spent a good deal of time in the effort, but failed to effect his purpose. He then appears to have attempted to remove the whole sill by extracting a brick at the side; but this was also too much for him. An attempt, it appears, was next made to burst the door, first by forcing the crowbar in at the side and then by lifting the door by using the crowbar as a lever at the bottom. In this latter performance the operator broke a piece out of the floor and also out of the door. Whether he was disturbed at this task by the police is not certain, but from the appearance of the door it is very likely he was, as had he persevered he would certainly have effected an entrance. The remarkable part of the business is that a large number of Government natives sleep in huts in the immediate vicinity of the premises, but none of them seem to have heard the burglar at his work. The police have the matter in hand, but have not succeeded in capturing the culprit up to the present.

Miscellaneous article on same page:

Professor Octavius Charles Cogan, of Grahamstown, gave the last of a series of three performances on the slack wire at the Royal Victoria Hall, Waterloo Bridge Road, on Tuesday evening. The professor, who claims to be the champion balancer of the world, was loudly applauded for the skilful manner in which he went through the various feats. The principal one, a decided novelty in its way, was a tug-of-war between the performer and, failing a member of the audience, an employe. Cogan balanced himself on his airy pedestal, his opponent, who stood on the ground, doing his utmost, by means of a rope, to pull him off the wire, but without avail. Since leaving South Africa in May last, Cogan has been traveling through the provinces, Ireland, and America, and will return shortly to the latter country.

Miscellaneous article on the same page:

COL. PENNEFATHER.  This distinguished officer is likely to have a novel privilege—that of reading what the papers had to say about him on the assumption that he was dead. The report of his death we hope and believe is quite unfounded. Commenting upon the rumour the Observer says:--“News is now reaching us from Mashonaland by way of Zanzibar, but it should be remembered that whatever news reaches Zanzibar must necessarily have a Portuguese flavour. The most striking item of news which has come to hand by this channel is that Colonel Pennefather, the Commandant of the British South Africa Company’s police, is dead. The reason assigned for his death is hardly intelligible, viz., that he was worn out by constant journeying. South African travel alone does not kill. And we may not altogether unreasonably entertain a lingering hope that the news is to be received with as much caution as the periodical announcements which we receive from our own people at Suakim that Osman Digma is dead. Colonel Pennefather was a fine, soldierlike officer, thoroughly acclimatized to South Africa, and possessing great power of command over both whites and natives.”

William Thomas Thorne, Postmaster at Fourteen Streams, has been remanded on a charge of embezzling considerable sums of money.

A man, named James Jagone, committed suicide at Johannesburg by jumping off the Doornfontein Bridge on to the Spring tramline below. The cowcatcher carried him several yards, and his mangled body was discovered soon afterwards.

A force of police proceeded from Kimberley to Wesselton and arrested nine men, who were conveyed to the police station and charged with incitement of breach of the peace. Six were released on bail of £10 each, but three were refused bail, and were kept in custody. They were found guilty by the Resident Magistrate, but let off with a reprimand.
