THE MARRIAGE OF MADAME PATTI. Madame Patti was married on January 25 at Brecon to Baron Cederstrom, of Sweden, among many manifestations of popular rejoicing. The wedding party left Craig-y-Nos Castle soon after nine o'clock, and thence drove in the brilliant sunshine to Penwyllt Station, where a special train was waiting to convey the party to Brecon. Many of the villagers, among whom Madame Patti is a great favourite, had I assembled in the vicinity of Penwyllt Station, and gave ringing cheers as the lady and her friends entered the train shortly after half-past nine o'clock. A few minutes after ten o'clock the special train steamed into the station, and a moment later the party alighted. The station had been gaily de- corated, and the mayor, town clerk, and corporation had assembled on the platform. Madame Patti was attired in dove-coloured satin, with cape to match, and mauve bonnet. She carried a bouquet of orchids. After a brief welcome by the mayor the party was escorted to the carriages. Previous to the arrival of the train the band of the 3rd battalion South Wales Borderers had been playing patriotic airs, and it now headed the procession, which was formed in the following order First carriage: Baron Cederstrom, Baron Rolf Cederstrom (the best man), the Mayor of Brecon, the town clerk. Second carriage: Mr. and Mrs. Wilhelm Ganz and Miss Woodford. Third car- riage: Miss Ganz, Miss A. Ganz, Mr. Harrison, and Mr. W. A. Hart. Fourth carriage: Miss K. Bauer- meister, Mr. Thorndike, Mr. E. Rube. Fifth carriage: Madame Patti Nicolini, Sir George Faudel Phillips, Bart., and Lady Faudel Phillips. Around the bride's carriage marched an escort of the fire brigade. The vicinity of the station was densely crowded, and as the bride emerged from the station and entered her carriage ringing cheers broke forth, to which Mdme. Patti, who looked radiantly happy, bowed repeatedly. The procession passed up Free-street, the Bulwarks, High street, and Wheat street, the whole of the route being decorated with Venetian masts, from which hung festoons and streamers. In due course the procession arrived at the church, at the entrance to which the bridal party were welcomed by the local magistracy. The interior was crowded with privileged visitors. Here the ceremony was performed, according to the ritual of the Roman Catholic Church, with the omis- sion of the mass. The bride was given away by Sir George Faudel-Phillips. Hymns were sung during the service. The ceremony over the procession re- formed and proceeded to the station, the Baron and Baroness Cederstrom this time being in the leading carriage. A moment later they had entered the saloon, in which the wedding breakfast had been prepared, and punctually at 11.30 the train steamed out of the station for London amid ringing cheers. The bride and bridegroom left England next day for the south of France.
