The young couple left ou the  Scolia, and not for a long lime has  there been such a large gathering  at lhe wharf. The boat was gaily  decorated with flying flags and  old shoes, the old-time ' token of  good luck. A- winter's grub-stake  in rice was showered on Mr. and  Mrs. McPhee as they ran the  gauntlet of their friends.
