The marriage belli were ringing at Toowoomba last week. The occasion was the union of Mr. William R. Robinson and Miss Fanny Harris, daughter of Inspector Harris. The Rev. Jones tied the knot, and a great crowd looked on. The bride was attired in cream satin, with cream brocade skirt, and Spanish lace trimmings. The skirt was draped in orange blossoms, and the neo-gamiste also wore a wreath of orange blossoms. The Misses Harris and Misses Robinson were bridesmaids, and Georgie Baynes was " best man "- no, not best, but second best. Southport was chosen for the honeymoon.

Another very lamentable case of drowning occured, in the Bremer River, yesterday afternoon. About half-past 3 o'clock the four sons of William Oldham, the well-known bootmaker, of Ellenborough street, were, with one or two other little fellows, fishing in the river in the vicinity of the railway bridge. Little James Oldham, aged nine and a half years, pulled off his boots, and, unnoticed by his elder brothers, began, as it is thought, to splash about in the shallow water at the edge of the bank. At all events, the anglers were startled by seeing the boy struggling in deep water, and it is thought that he got out of his depth when attempting to reach a stick that was floating up with the incoming tide. The deceased's eldest brother, who was a short distance away, at once rushed to the spot, but as he could not swim, all he could do was to hold out a piece of wood for his brother to grasp. This did not reach the little fellow or he was too flurried to catch hold of it, and his brothers were horrified by seeing him drown a few feet away from them without being able to assist him in any way. The cries of the drowning lad and the witnesses of the affair attracted Mr. C. W. Rich, of the Custom house, whose son, Douglas Rich, aged sixteen, ran to the river-bank, and, on being informed of what has transpired, immediately plunged into the river. In the meantime, one of Mr. Oldham's sons had told him of the occurence, and he lost no time in getting to the scene of the accident. With him a young fellow, named Michael Ryan, who resides opposite the old railway station, proceeded to the spot, and jumped into the water. A large number of persons allege that he found the body, and took it out on to the bank ; while others affirm that it was Douglas Rich who discovered and rescued the corpse. Be that as it may, the lad was found almost ten yards from where he was first seen in the river (between the large pillars of the bridge). A crowd of people soon collected round the place, and, under the direction of Dr. Channing Neill, various means were resorted to for some considerable time to restore respiration, but all efforts were unavailing. It was hoped by many of those present that life had not departed, for the boy could not have been more than five minutes in the river, but at length all were compelled to admit that their exertions had been futile, and the body was sorrowfully carried up the street to his bereaved father's residence, where, a few short hour's before, the lad had been enjoying himself with the rest of the family. The deceased was the fourth son of Mr. Oldham, and his funeral will leave his late home in Ellenborough-street at 4 o'clock this afternoon.

Very considerable regret was expressed in town early on Saturday morning (says the Rockhampton Bulletin of the 28th ult,) when it became known that Mr. George Gibson, one of the owners of Withersfield station and formerly manager of Gordon Downs Station, had died overnight. Mr. Gibson has been in failing health for time past; but a residence of several months in Rockhampton seemed to work a change for the better. A fortnight ago he left for his station, intending to be away only two or three days; but the Journey by rail, and thence to the head station by road, proved too much for him and on his arrival there he felt very much exhausted. On Friday morning, however, he started for Rockhampton; but on the way down, and when near his journey's end, he became suddenly worse, and at one stage unconscious. The train reached town at half-past nine o'clock, in the, evening, and about half an hour later?at the Railway Hotel?he breathed his last. Mr. Gibson was an old resident of this part of the country, and had a large circle of friends, by whom his death his death will be very regretted. He was a stepson of Mr. F.N. Beddek, once Clerk of Petty Session at Rockhmapton, and brother of Mrs. A. F. Wood, of this town. He was was also related to Mr. Johnstone, Police Magisstrate. [Mr Gibson was related to Mrs. D.] Connor and others of Mackay. Ed. MER.

MRS. RICHARD SOLWAY.
We regret io have to record the death of Mrs. Solway, the wife of Mr. Solway, of Nowra Hill. Mrs. Solway was ill only one week, and died on Wednesday last of pneumonia. She was a very old resident of the district, as also is her husband, and was well known and much esteemed by neighbours for her kind and benevolent disposition. She was a most affectionate mother, and was strongly attached to her family, several of whom are grown up and occupy respectable positions in society. In all the deceased had led an exemplary life. She was a consistent member of the Roman Catholic Church, and the large cortege that followed the remains to the place of interment at the Roman Catholic cemetery on Thursday was sufficient evidence of the esteem in which the deceased was held by a large circle of friends and acquaintance. Much sympathy is expressed for Mr. Solway and family in their bereavement.

A NASTY ACCIDENT.
A PAINFUL accident befel Mr. W. H. Shard, a farmer of Anthony, yesterday afternoon. He had been on the top of a hayrick, and, having no other means of getting down, went to slide off, forgetting for the moment that a hay-fork was standing by the side of the stack with the prongs in the ground. He came down heavily on the handle of the fork, which inflicted a penetrating wound in the lower part of the body. The injured man was brought to Ipswich by last night's train, and conveyed to the Hospital, where he is at present under treatment.

DEATH OF MR. W. H. SHARD.
IN our last issue was recorded a serious accident to Mr. William Henry Shard, a farmer, of Anthony, who came down very heavily on the handle of a hay-fork while descending from a rick last Monday afternoon. He was admitted into the Hospital the same evening, and on Tuesday evening, shortly before 6 o'clock, he died. We understand that the handle of the fork penetrated his abdomen to an extent of about 8in., causing a laceration of the intestines. Mr. Shard progressed as well as it was possible under such serious conditions until about 5 o'clock on Tuesday afternoon, when symptoms of failure of the heart made their appearance. Dr. Thornton, who was present at the time, did all that could be done under the circumstances, and remained with him until he died. The occurrence is the more regrettable in that the deceased leaves a widow and eleven children, most of them of tender age. Mr. Henry Shard, father of the deceased, is a farmer at Goolman.

CRACK - SOLWAY.
A very interesting, though quiet, wedding (writes a correspondent) took place on Wednesday last at the residence of Mr. John Clish, State School, Plainland, when Mr. Alfred Crack, of Laidley, and Miss Sarah M. Solway, of Kingswood Farm, Mutdapilly, were united in the bonds of holy matrimony, the ceremony being performed by the Rev. A. Taylor, of the Primitive Methodist Church, Laidley. Mr. Clish gave away the bride, and Mr. Walter Solway (brother of the bride) acted in the capacity of best man, the bridesmaids being Misses Daisy and Dot Solway (sisters of the bride). For the occasion Mr. Clish's best room had been most tastefully arranged and decorated with many large and small handsome bouquets of most beautiful flowers culled from the schoolgarden. The bride looked attractive in a costume of handsome cream brocaded satin, plain skirt, bodice with gathered chiffon yoke, trimmed with frills of same, edged with bebe ribbon ; sprays of orange blossom, and sash of chiffon, finished at the waist with pretty carbon buckles. A beautifully embroidered veil and pretty coronet of orange blossoms completed this becoming costume. She also carried a magnificent bridal bouquet, prepared by Mr. Clish from white flowers gathered from the school garden. The bridesmaids were attired in pretty little frocks of white muslin trimmed with tucks, insertion, and lace, white satin ribbon sashes, leghorn hats, trimmed with scarves of silk, gracefully caught up with daisies. They also wore beautiful gold brooohes, which had been presented to them by the bridegroom. Among the ladies who were present at the ceremony were Mrs. Clish, sister of the bride, who wore a dainty white muslin gown overslip of eau-de-nil, bodice tucked and trimmed with pretty insertion, collar and belt in contrasting shades of green silk, stylish toque of green and black straw trimmed with lace and ribbon and soft shade of pink roses ; Mrs. Cooper, navy blue costume trimmed with white silk, black and white bonnet trimmed with lilies of the valley ; Mrs. Crack (mother of the bridegroom), black cashmere trimmed with black satin, bonnet to match ; Mrs. James Crack, cream liberty silk, with becoming white velvet hat trimmed with white ostrich plumes ; Mrs. Taylor, black costume ; and little Miss Nelly Cooper, in a pretty frock of pale green nun's veiling. After the ceremony the company repaired to the dining-room, where a most sumptuous repast had been spread, which reflected the greatest credit on Mrs. Clish, who, with the assistance of Mrs. Cooper, was responsible for the production and laying out of all the good things with which the table was laden. Judging by the appreciative way in which the various appetising articles were sampled, the cooks must have been highly gratified. When the attack on the edibles had considerably eased off (and that took a considerable time), Mr. Clish, in a neat and humorous speech, proposed the health of the bride and bridegroom, which the company drank most heartily. The bridegroom suitably responded. Mr. Taylor proposed " The Bridesmaids ;" and Mr. Charles Crack " The Parents of the Bride and Bridegroom." " The Host and Hostess" was proposed by Mr. Taylor, and Mr. Clish replied, after which the company arose to make room for another relay of guests, who must have been glad to take their places. About 3.30 p.m. the happy couple left en route for Brisbane and Southport, being driven by Mr. James Crack to the Laidley Railway Station, and accompanied by the bridesmaids as far as Laidley. Two buggy-loads of the bride's and bridegroom's relatives and intimate friends also went to Ladley to bid Mr. and Mrs. Crack " bon voyage." The bride's travelling dress was of fawn cashmere, tucked bodice, yoke of light green silk, also tucked, and edged with green velvet ribbon and guipure insertion. She also wore a very pretty hat of white straw, trimmed with tulle glace ribbon and ostrich tips, gold ornaments, and bandeau.
On arrival at the Laidley Railway Station, it was found that a large company of the bridegroom's companions and acquaintances had there assembled, determined to send him off in their own way. Showers of rice were much in evidence, and the loud report of a fog-signal as the train moved away announced that the happy pair had fairly started on their honeymoon trip.
Among the presents to the bride and bridegroom were the following : - Household requisites, by Mrs. John Solway (mother of the bride) ; handsome lamp, by Mrs. Crack (bridegroom's mother) ; wardrobe, Mr. and Mrs. Clish ; cheque, Messrs. Walter and William Solway (brothers of the bride) ; cruet, Mrs. Charles Crack ; album, Mrs. James Crack ; silver salt-cellar and jam-dish, Mrs. Cooper and Mr. William Gooderham. The dresses and hats of the bride, bridesmaids, and the bride's sister (Mrs. Clish) were designed and executed at the firm of Messrs. Cribb and Foots, and reflected the greatest credit on Miss Brissenden in respect of the dresses and on Miss Ford in regard to the millinery. The wedding-cake was the production of Mrs. Clish, and, though not got up externally so elaborately as the regulation wedding-cake from the confectioner, was, internally, the perfection of excellence.

SUICIDE AT RYDE.
An elderly man named William Mackay Johnston, who had been staying with a friend at Ryde, was on Saturday found dead in a paddock some few yards from the residence. Near him was an open, razor, while his head was found to be almost severed from the body. The matter was reported to the police, and Mr. MacNevin, P.M., of Parramatta, held an inquiry into the circumstances. The deceased had, it appears, come from the country about Christmas time, and prior to his death had been extremely despondent. A finding of death from injuries self-inflicted, while suffering from temporary derangement of the mind, was recorded.

OUR LAIDLEY LETTER.
(From Our Own Correspondent.)
Orange Blossoms.
August 2,
Another of those very interesting and picturesque German weddings eventuated here yesterday. The actual ceremony took place at the Hatton Vale Lutheran Church, and was performed by the Rev. M. Millat, but both bride and bridegroom belong to North Laidley, where their respective families have resided for a great number of years. The bridegroom, Mr. Charles Loose, is the youngest son of Mr. John Loose, while the bride, Miss Minnie Bliesner, is the third daughter of Mr. Adolph Bliesner, the two families occupying farms adjacent to each other at North Laidley. The wedding was rendered the more interesting as only a short time ago the couple acted as bridesmaid and best man at the wedding of the former's brother to the latter's sister. At the wedding yesterday the party formed a pretty group. The bride wore a cream muslin costume, trimmed with white and yellow ribbons, her handsome embroidered veil being surmounted with the orthodox orange blossom wreath. Her two bridesmaids, Misses Lena Bliesner and Annie Kanofski, were attired in white muslin dresses, the former wearing a blue sash and trimmings, while the latter appeared in corresponding trimmings of cardinal. The groomsmen were Messrs. August Bliesner and John Kanofski, brothers of the bridesmaids,and they looked very taking in their gay vari-coloured ribbon decorations and orange-blossom favours. The church is about 11 miles distant from the residence of the bride's parents, where the festivities were carried out, but the journey thither and back was soon accomplished.

OBITUARY
One of the best and most loveable old natives of the Hawkesbury, in the person of Mrs. Maria Cobcroft, relict of the late George Cobcroft, passed away at Wilberforce on the 5th instant, after a short illness, The deceased was 86 years of age, and had spent the whole of her life in the Hawkesbury district, living some time at Colo, and for a lengthy period at Wilberforce. She leaves a numerous line of descendants, including eight sons and daughters, 54 grand-children, and 17 great grand-children. The late Mr. George Cobcroft died some 20 years ago. The name of the late Mrs. Cobcroft was synonymous with all that was good and praiseworthy, and perhaps no family is more respected in this district than the Cobcroft family. They have been associated with the Hawkesbury from its earliest settlement, and it is a name that is known and venerated throughout New South Wales. The subject of this notice was one of the finest characters in the district, and go where you will you hear the same story: "She was a grand old soul, and will be missed by scores whom she has befriended and helped." And so she was, and died as she lived - an honest, charitable, Christian woman. There was none of the namby-pamby sort of religion in her; she made no outward show of her good works, nor sought praise for what she did. She cared not what people thought of her, and never offended her own conscience in order to gain popular approbation. Her life was a grand example to all, and those who knew the bright-spirited, big-hearted, benevolent woman loved her best. She has been laid to rest, and though she had been permitted to live beyond the allotted span, general regret is expressed at her death. She had a family of nine, one of whom (the late Mrs Andrew Stephens) pre-deceased her. Those living are : Mrs. Paul Bushell, Mrs. John Turnbull (Wilberforce), Mrs. W. J. Farlow (Freeman's Reach), Mrs. F. E. Barker (Moorbank, Liverpool), Mrs. George B. Johnston (Wilberforce), Miss Maria Cobcroft (who has always lived at home, and was deeply attached to her mother) and Messrs. Samuel and John Cobcroft, of Wilberforce. All of these are well-known throughout tbe district, and are worthy descendants of the good woman. The burial took place on Wednesday afternoon of last week, and a very large concourse of people assembled to show their respect for the deceased and her living relations. Messrs. G. Nicholls, J.P., G. Greentree, J.P., F. Stubbs, and T. Bowd acted as pall-bearers. The cortege proceeded to the pretty Church on the hill, and a service was conducted therein by the rector, Rev. W. S. Newton, M.A. Miss L. E. Buttsworth played the "Dead March" as the mourners entered the Church, and again as they came out.
The minister took occasion to refer to the beautiful life that had just closed, and to her noble and self-denying character, putting her Christian life forward as an example for all. He then announced that the departed lady had expressly asked that her favorite hymn "What a friend we have in Jesus," should be sung at her funeral, and the choir rendered it with feeling. The last sad rites were performed at the graveside by the rector, and the funeral arrangements were carried out by Mr. R. W. Dunstan, of Windsor.

DEATH OF MR. XAVIER SCHEKOSKE.
A Wondai correspondent writes under date of the 30th ultimo: - This death will be a surprise to many of your readers. Mr. Schekoske was born in Germany, and was two years of age when he came with his father to Queensland. He had spent the prime of his life as a farm labourer, and was known to many people in the West Moreton district. He was also a member of the Lowood Volunteer Force. After marriage to the second daughter of Mr. G. Steele, of Glamorgan Vale, he had settled down on a portion of his father's farm, known as Valentine Schekoske's farm, at Glamorgan Vale, and there he engaged in farming and dairying. In 1901 he selected a much larger area of land in the rising settlement of Wondai, where he followed farming and dairying pursuits, in the course of which he had to face a lot of difficulties inseparable from pioneering in a new centre. Some five months ago he was taken ill, and entered the Brisbane General Hospital, where he remained for over six weeks. Being then considerably better he paid a visit to some of his friends in the Ipswich locality, and then returned home, but again became seriously ill, and was taken to the Marybrough General Hospital, where, three days afterwards, on the 13th of August, he died, at the age of 35 years, leaving a widow and five small children to mourn their loss. Mr. Schekoske, who was a very hard-working man, will be greatly regretted in this neighbourhood, having been a member of the committee of the Mondure North School, in which he took a keen interest.

THE LATE MRS. SUCHTING.
On Wednesday evening, the 11th instant (writes a correspondent), a memorial service was held In the Christian Chapel, Vernor, in connection with the late Mrs. F. Suchting (an account of whose death appeared in your Fernvale letter of Thursday last). There was a large attendance of friends and sympathisers, the building bring packed, marked attention being paid throughout the whole of the service, which was conducted by Mr. W. L. Jones (Evangelist of the Churches of Christ in West Moreton). Hymns appropriate to the occasion were sung. A short address in German was given by Mr. F. Aderman, sen., who made feeling references to the sterling qualities of the deceased lady as a church member, and to the assistance she rendered as a singer. In closing his remarks he exhorted all present to practice all the virtues possessed by the deceased. The evangelist took for the basis of his remarks I. Cor. 15-55 ("O, death, where is my sting? O, grave, where is thy victory ?"), and in a very solemn manner spoke of the uncertainty of life, and reminding his audience that death was no respecter of persons, and that when the summons came all must obey. Yet to the Christian death was but the portal to those mansions aboveā€”a stepping-stone to the life beyond, a gate-way into the presence of the King. He urged his hearers to obey the precepts of the Lord, and to prepare for eternity. Their sister had left them, but they mourned not as those without hope. They could all be victorious over sin from within and without and through Jesus our Lord. After singing the hymn "Will you be ready when the Bridegroom comes ?" a very impressive service was brought to a close. 
RIEK, Wilhelmine Augusta (I1886)
