Marriage of Viscount Lewisham and Lady Ruby Carrington. PRESENT FROM THE KING AND QUEEN. ROYAL GUESTS AT THE WEDDING. St. George's Church, Hanover Square., was filled with; a large1 and distinguished congrega- tion on Thursday afternoon! for the marriage of Viscount Lewisham, Sionl of the Earl and Coun- tess of Dartmouth, with Lady Ruperta Carring- ton, daughter of Earl and Countess, Carrington. The bridte', who ist generally known to her inti- mate friends as "Ruby," is tall, graceful, and very pretty, and she looked singularly charming in her wedding-gown of white s-atin draped with lace and a long train of silver moire, whilst a wreath of orange blossom, very picturesquely ar- ranged beneath her wedding veil, proved' most becoming. The bridesmaids who attended her were Lady Joan andi Lady Dorothy Legge, daughters of the Earl and Countess of Dart- mouth, Lady Alexandra, Lady Myee, and Lady Victoria Carringtoni, sisters of the' bride, and Lady Margaret1 Lasceiles, daughter of the Earl and Countess of Hare wood. These young ladiesi were all prettily dressed in pale rose pink satin, completely veiled by white chiffon, with delicate laüe insertions and little bows of pale pink satin baby-ribbon. Their hats had crowns of fur and brims of gripure lace, and looked most becoming. The officiating clergy were the Bishop of Lichfield1, the Rev. E. D. Shaw, and the Rev. David Anderson, and the service, which was fully choral, was, short and decidedly im- pressive. Princess Christian and her daughter, Princess Victoria of Schleswig-Hoistedni, honoured the ceremony with their presence, the former wear- ing a handsome toilette of a dark shade of Par- ma violet, with. some beautiful ermine, and a toquel al-so, trimmed with ermine. Princess Vic- toria was gowned in bronze-co 1 oured velvet. Mrs Dick-Cunyngham, who was in attendance, had a charming mouse-coloured costume, which suited her admirably. The Princesses were conducted1 to the seats reserved1 for them, and a few minutes afterwards the bride arrived lean- ing on the arm of her father. There were no pages, and she was followed by the bridesmaids. Viscount Lewisham, who was, attended by his best man, Mr Riddell. awaited Lady Ruperta at the chancel rail, the choir meanwhile singing a nuptial hymn. At the conclusion of the service the bridal party adjourned to the vtestxy, where Princess Christian and her daughter, the Earl and Countess of Dartmouth, and Earl and! Countess Carrington, all signed the: register. So densely crowded was the Church that it was almost impossible to distinguish guests from the ordinary spectators, and the brides- maids, evidently found it so too, for their stock of rose-coloured carnations were soon exhaust- ed. Lord Hasting a and his brother, the Hon.
Carnarvonshire Unemployed. The Committee appointed by the Carnarvon County Council to inquire into the question of the unemployed in the county met on Saturday, under the presidency of the Chairman (Mr Ellis W. Davies). Returns, had' been received shew. ing that in eight districts the number of unem- ployed registered was 655, but there were sev- eral districts from which no figures had been re- ceived. It was resolved1 to confer with the Chairman of the Surveyor's Committee upon the question of putting in hand work of a necessary though not absolutely essential character, and to appeal for subscriptions. A number of employ- ers wrote notifying their willingness to give pre- ference to residents of the county when engag- ing workmen. RELIEF WORKS AT RHYL. Mr Arthur Rowlands, Clerk to the, Rhyl Dis- trict Council, has sent the following appeal to owners of property and others in the district: "As there is much disttesis, in the town in consequence of many men being out of work, the Poor Relief Committee have made an anl peal to the Rhyl Urban District Council to suf- gest to owners of property the advisability of their joining together voluntarily to provide work, by causing their back roads, passages, and lanes' to be repaired1 and made good, with the view of adoption,. Many loads of clinkers may be had gratis for that purpose at the Elec- tricity Works:, in Victoria Road,. The Town Surveyor will be willing to afford assistance in carrying out the work. It is also intimated that the Council would be prepared to find public work for the unemployed to the extent of any money contributed for that purpose by any per- sons so disposed. I shall be glad to learn whether you are ready to do anything in the way above suggested,"
Salaries of Presbyterian Ministers. The Lancashire, Cheshire:, and North Wales Presbytery is taking steps with the view of se- curing a minimum salary of ^150 a year for the pastors of all the churches in its district. I.-
Jacob Astliey, were among those who conducted the guests to their seats., both being first-cousins of the bride. BEAUTIFUL DRESSES. Some very handsome toilettes: were to be seen, and once again furs of all kind played a very prominent part. Purples: of various shades, wine-coloured1 reds, grenat, gooseberry-green, and champagne-coloured cloths were much en evidence, and there were a few, but not very many, velvets to be noticed. Countess Carring- ton looked extremely well in a gown of sapphire- blue chiffon, velvet, with a sable boa round her shoulders-. Her hat was of beaver of the same colour as her gown., and trimmed with blue fea- thers and' flowers. The Countess of Dartmouth also looked extremely well, dressed in. golden- brown chiffon velvet and a toque to match, in which, pale pastel-blue played a prominent part. A beautiful brooch; of pearls: and diamonds was worn on the' centre, of her bodice. The March- ioness of Ormonde, who, is staying in London for a little, while wore a toilette of silver-grey panne, with, a cape of chinchilla, and a grey and silver toque, in which, pink rose si were nestling. Lady Hallingdon, an aunt of the bride, was ai- m/ired in a striking costume of amethyst-colour- ed chiffon: velvet, the bodice being trimmed with chiffon of the same shadte, and lighter flowers worn in an. amethyst-coloured toque. With her came the Hon. Rhoda Astley, who looked, pretty in a white cloth coat and skirt, with a White toque trimmed with grey feathers. Lord, Chey- lesmore was accompanied bv Lady Cheylesmore, wearing a dark green gown, with some nice sables and a very smart toque. Countess Tol- stoi was: in rose colour, and she, too, wore some lovely furs. The Hon, Lady Tryon was: in sil- ver-grey brocade -and a grey bonnet. The Countessi of Ancaster wore chinchilla with a claret-co-loured, gown, and her daughter, Lady Nina Willoughby, was in brown. Viscountess Downe had a fur cape over a dark coloured costume, and Louisa Lady Hillingdo-n was attired! in black relieved: with some fur at her neck. Her daughter, the Hon. Mrs. Law- rence, wore a smart costume of dull grey-green cloth, and talking to, her might have been seen Lady Louise Loder, who was in. white cloth and sable. The Hon. Mrs- William Cavendish wore heliotrope, and brought her daughter, who was in pale blue. Lady Beatrix Wilkinson wore- a coat and skirt of pastel blue cloth trimmed with white embroideries, and flowers: in her toque, and Mrs L. V. Harcourt looked smart in elec- tric blue rriiroir velvet trimmed with steel, and a toque to match, whilst others present in the Church included Lord Hillingdon, the Earl and Countess of Harewood, the Hon. Edward Stan- hope Lady Frances Legge, Colonel the Hon. H. and the Hon.. Mrs Legge, Mr W. H. Gren- fell, Lady Barbara Yeatman-Biggs, Viscount Colville and the Hon. Margaret Colville Lady Juliet Duff, the, Hon. George Monckton-Arun- dell, Lady Victoria Dawnay, the Hon. Mrs Harry Lawson, Lord and Lady Middleton, the Marquise d Hautpoul, Mrs Frederick Hartmann, and many others. After the ceremony a large company repaired to S3) Prince's Gate, where Countess Carrington held a reception. Nearly all the guests: who had been in the Church were present, including Princess; Christian, and! Princess Victoria of Schleswig-Holstein. The house was decorated with white flowers, principally chrysanthemums. Lord and Lady Lewisham stood in the drawing- room receiving the congratulations of their friends as tlhey arrived, Round the room were shown the various weddiing presents, those from the Royal family being exhibited in one little case by themeslves, but the ruby and diamond pendant from the Queen was not on view, as it I had been packed for travelling. The Duke and Duchess: of Connaught's gift was: greatly ad- mired. It ocnsisited of a grey enamelled smell- ing-asits bottle, and at least five or six other I members of the Royal famiiv also sent gifts. In a much larger case were shown several superb pieces of jewellry that the bride had received from various members- of the two families. From Lord1 and1 Lady Dartmouth came a very high tiara of diamonds:, which should prove very becoming to the youthful wearer. A riviere of diamonds and rubies set in gold was pre- sented by Viscount Lewisham. The Earl and Countess Carrington's gift to their daughter was a beautifully-designed diamond flower, the centres! of which were sapphires. Mr Alfred de Rothschild presented the bride with a true- lover's knot of diamonds: from which fell a large pearl. The tenantry of Patshull and other places- belonging to the Earl of Dartmouth sent beautiful silver gifts, and the Earl of Carring- ton's tenantry also presented the bride with many charming presents,. Viscount and Viscoutess Lewisham left short. ly after four o:'clock for Cromer, the bride's go- ing-away dresisi being of a very becoming shade of rose, colour, with feathers! of the same shade
