An Interesting Wedding

ADAMS — CRAGO. — An interesting wedding was celebrated on January 8 at the home of Mr. and Mrs.W. H. Crago, when their eldest daughter, Sister Bessie Crago, was married to Dr. Charles Goldsbrough Adams, of Inverell. Both the bride and bridegroom have seen active service, and both were decorated for meritorious services during the war. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. C. A. S. Woodhouse (Methodist). Miss Kathleen Crago (sister of the bride) was bridesmaid, and Mr. J. Alford, of Cowra, was best man. The bride was attired in a coat and skirt of Saxe blue crepe-de-chine and wore a soft grey hat, lined with blue and trimmed with a French posy. The bridesmaid's frock was of maize crepe de-chine, and was worn with a burnt straw hat trimmed with shaded roses veiled in brown tulle. Dr and Mrs. Adams will leave for Scotland at the end of the month.
