These clippings were saved in a book by my great-grandmother Sarah Elizabeth
(SELBY) AGAR, or perhaps by her mother, Eliza (BELL) SELBY. Unfortunately,
most are not dated and I do not know which newspaper they were from.
However, I suspect that many of them were from The Alliston Herald. I will
type them just as they appear -- spelling mistakes, punctuation and all!

Each posting here represents one page (one side) from the book.

residence of Mr. and Mrs. James R. DICKSON, Victoria street, when their

charmingly attired in cream taffetta silk, trimmed with embroidery chiffon
and all-over lace to match, and carried a shower boquet of roses, carnations
and maiden-hair fern. She was attended by Miss Francis DAWSON, who was
attired in cream taffetta silk, trimmed with shirred chiffon and Russian
chiffon, and carried a boquet of cream roses and pink carnations. The groom
was assisted by his brother, Mr. Britton KERR, of Stayner. The ceremony was
performed by Rev. J. J. FERGUSON in the presence of the immediate friends of
the contracting parties. The happy couple left for a trip to Toronto and
other points.
