LADNER, B. C, OCTOBER 29, 1904.
CREECH CORBETT.
On Thursday evening last Rev.
T, Oswald, with the assistance of
dipt. J. W. Rogers, successfully
logged an unusual kind of nautical
reckoning, by uniting, on board
the s.s. Victorian at Guichon, two
youthful hearts, and thereby log*
ing a knot while not in motion.
The happy couple were Walter H.
Creech, of Victoria, and Miss Mabel
Bella Corbett, of Surrey. Capt.
Rogers gave the bride away, while
Mr. and Mrs. Creech of Lndner
supported the bride and groom respectively.
The wedding took place in the
cabin iu the presence of the officers
of the Victorian and the train
crew. After the wedding ceremony, all hands were piped to a
sumptuous repast which hnd been
prepared in the dining room, and,
needless to say, mil justice was
done to the delicious viands prepared for this auspicious occHsion.
The balance of the evening was
spent in song and recitation and
toasting, the Captain proposing the
toast of the evening���Mr. and Mrs.
Creech���which was heartily responded to.'
Mr. and Mrs. Creech will reside
in Victoria and carry with tbetn the
very best vwishes of all who know
them.
