Owen; a portion of Scripture was read by the Rev. D. H. Rees; and the' inaj-riage portion of the service was conducted by the Rev. J. Williams, who concluded with..prayer, after which the congregation joined in singing "The Voice that Breathed o'er Eden," At the close, the wedding party returned to Brynsyfi, where a reception was held; and later "in the dav the bride and bridegroom left for1 London.
