Miscellaneous articles on the same page:

There have been few prettier wedding ceremonies in the Pretoria Cathedral than that on the occasion of the marriage of Mr. Fred MURRAY, of Volksrust, a brother of the Natal Minister of Land and Works, with Miss Essie MACARTHUR. The latter’s circle of friends in Pretoria is a very wide one. “H. B. Pretor” tied the nuptial knot, being assisted thereunto by the Revs. Llewellyn and Dunbar, Mr. Allen presiding at the organ. The bride, who was given away by Mr. Percy Field, looked lovely in a cream broche satin. The petticoat was covered with tulle embossed with orange blossoms, and flounce of Swiss lace. The train was also trimmed with tulle and lilies of the valley. She wore a diamond locket, and carried a magnificent bouquet, both the gift of the bridegroom. The best man was Mr. Advocate Krause. The bridesmaids were Miss Birdie Schweizer (niece of the bride), Miss Meintjes, and Miss Emma Krogh, who were attired in cream bengaline, flowers and fichu of Swiss lace, coloured sashes and black lace, picture hats, with coloured flowers. They wore gold curb bracelets, and carried beautiful bouquets of heath and Cape wild flowers, both the gift of the bridegroom. The flower-girls were Miss Lassie Field and Miss Lily Knobel, who were dressed in white silk Empire gowns, lace picture hats. They carried baskets of flowers, and wore gold bangles, also the gift of the bridegroom. The house party consisted of Mrs. Schweizer, Miss MacArthur, Messrs. Fred and Gill MacArthur, and the Hon. T. K. Murray, brother of the bridegroom. The bride’s travelling dress was blue serge, with pink waistcoat, and hat to match. At the reception after the ceremony a large number of friends assembled to wish the pair a happy future. The toast of the day was proposed by the Bishop in his happiest vein, the Hon. T. K. Murray doing similar duty for the hostess.
Amongst the numerous guests were Sir J. and Lady de Wet, Mrs. Paul Nel, Mr. and Mrs. Jeppe, Mr. and Mrs. Allen, Dr. and Mrs. Knobel, Mrs. Krause, Mrs. Little, Mr. and Mrs. Evans, the Bishop and Mrs. Bousfield, Canon Fisher, Mr. J. P. Hoffmann, Mr. and Mrs. Meadway, Mr. and Mrs. E. F. Bourke. The numerous presents included a set of Royal Worcester china from Bishop and Mrs. Bousfield, a set of Honiton lace from Sir Jacobus and Lady de Wet, silver salver and quilt from the Hon. T. K. Murray, silver fruit dish from Mrs. Nelmapius, delf ware panel from Judge and Mrs. Ameshoff, case of spoons from Mr. Leo. Weinthal, and a large number of other handsome presents.

At the Lyceum at present under the direction of Messrs. Henry E. Abbey and Maurice Grau, “The Queen of Brilliants” introduces a succession of the most brilliant spectacles. I hope I shall not seem to poach on the preserves of “An Old Stager” if I mention that it is reported that £5000 alone was spent on the beautiful dresses. One has scarcely time to notice the various enchanting costumes separately, there are such an amazing number of them. That two South African favourites, in the persons of Mr. Avon-Saxon and Miss Zoe Gilfillan take part in the opera, causes the performance to become doubly attractive to South Africans, many of whom, now visiting England, have had an opportunity of hearing these artists in Kimberley, Pretoria, Johannesburg, &c. Mr. Avon-Saxon’s fine song in the second act was received with genuine enthusiasm.
