Times are better than in the beginning of the winter.

Mr. Burke purchased a yoke of oxen from Mrs. William Howell on Tuesday and a pair of fat oxen and a cow from Mr. David Clem a short time previous.

When the news of the death of Mrs. McConnell, relict of the late Alexander McConnell, (formerly of this place but who for the past few years has resided with her daughter Mrs. Geo. McMahon, Lake George), reached here great was the sorrow felt by all. Mrs. McConnell was born and reared in this vicinity and from the date of her marriage till a few years previous to her death always resided in Burlington. The deceased was the mother of a large family but only three survive the aged parent whose kindness and gentleness endeared her to the hearts of all. Several of the great grand children of the deceased, grown to manhood and womanhood, reside here. We offer our deepest sympathies to the relatives of the deceased and feel the force of the words "Blessed are the dead that die in the Lord."

An occurrence which might have ended disastrously happened recently at this place. Mr. Whitman Brown of Harbourville was passing through en route for his home; his horse suddenly became unmanageable and endeavored to throw its driver to the road and run away. It succeeded in the last and proceeded to cover the ground with parcels that were in the sleigh. After running some distance, Mr. Brown, who is noted for his coolness and good management of horses, succeeded in stopping the now thoroughly frightened steed; nothing was injured.

Wedded in Boston:

A very pretty wedding took place in the first R.P. church on the evening of Feb. 24th by which Mr. Frank B. Magee, son of George P. Magee Esq., of Lower Church St., Cornwallis, and Miss Marjorie Borden, daughter of Daniel S. Borden Esq. of Town Plot, N.S., were united in marriage.

Long before the hour set for the ceremony the large audience room of the church was thronged with friends of the contracting parties who came to see them embarked on the sea of matrimony and to wish them God-speed. Promptly at 8 o’clock the wedding party entered the church to the strains of the wedding march played by Prof. Shaffer. The bride looked lovely indeed in a beautiful gown of mode shade trimmed with lace and ribbon of a darker shade. She wore a bonnet of Bride’s Loses, and carried a bouquet of the same. She was accompanied by her sister Miss Marie Borden, who wore a dress of cadet blue trimmed with velvet of the same color and white and gold embroidery. She carried a boquet of violets.

The groom was supported by Mr. J.B. Baxter of Port Williams. After the ceremony, which was performed by the pastor of the church, Rev. Samuel McNaugher, the bridal party repaired to the elegant suite of rooms which the groom had prepared for his bride at 592 Columbus Ave. where they held a reception. The numerous and costly presents testified in a very substantial way to the esteem in which they are held by a host of friends, who all wished them much happiness in the new home, which has been formed under the most auspicious circumstances.

Mr. and Mrs. Magee will be at home after March 1st at 592 Columbus Ave., Boston.
