The Bute Wedding Dowry. ———— After carefully investigating the claims of the six candidates for the Bute wedding dowry this year, the Mayor of Cardiff (Alderman Robert Hughes) has decided in favour of Miss Caroline Harvey Virgin of 17, Rose-street, Roath, who for nine years has been in service at Aberdare Hall. Miss Hurlbatt, the principal, gives Miss Virgin an excellent character, and states that she has never had reason to complain of her work or conduct. The successful appli- cant, who is 23 years of age, is the eldest of four girls, and her father being occasionally ill and out of work, she, for several years, gave her earnings, after making small deductions for clothes, to her mother. Her fiaued is Arthur James Oram, of 56, Ruby-street, Roatb, who is 28 years of age, and a retailer of coal. The dowry was instituted by the late Mar- quess of Bute on the occasion of his silver wedding. His lordship gave 21,000 to be in- vested, the annual dividend arising out of the fund to be given to a girl of the poorer class, who shall be domiciled in Cardiff, and whose marriage might be facilitated by the receipt of such a sum. The dowry averages about 230. When it is presented, the mayor, or someone deputed by him, must read the first eleven verses of the second chapter of St. John, relat- ing to the marriage in Cana of Galilee.
