We regret to record the death which occurred suddenly early on Wednesday morning of Mrs. Mary Margaret BURGE, of Floriston, Queen-street, one of the oldest inhabitants. Mrs. BURGE, who was 82, had suffered indifferent health for some time, but on Tuesday was out walking. Following a heart attack during the night her death came unexpectedly to her many friends. Her husband predeceased her many years ago. She leaves one son and three daughters.



The marriage took place at the North Petherton Congregational Church on Saturday of Mr. Clifford Ernest ADDICOTT, youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. F. ADDICOTT, of Coombe Farm, Moorland, and Miss Freda Lilian Charlotte HILL, youngest daughter of Mrs. A. HILL and the late Mr. E. HILL, of Sunny Bank, North Petherton. The church had been tastefully decorated by Miss K. CLATWORTHY. Many friends were present at the ceremony.

The Rev. Leigh WALLER, of Burrow-bridge, officiated, and Miss R. WARREN, cousin of the bride, presided at the organ. The hymns, “The Voice that breathed o'er Eden,” and “Love Divine, all loves excelling,” were sung.

Given away by her uncle, Mr. H. W. CLATWORTHY, the bride was charmingly attired in a gown of ivory satin beaute, with embroidered veil and halo of orange blossom. She carried a shower bouquet of pink carnations.

There were four bridesmaids, Miss Edith HILL, sister of the bride, Miss Joan CLATWORTHY and Miss Josephine CLATWORTHY, cousins of the bride, and Miss Megan MATRAVES, niece of the bridegroom. The two elder bridesmaids wore ankle-length dresses of blue taffeta, with haloes and shoes to match, and the younger bridesmaids wore dresses of lemon taffeta.

Mr. R. ADDICOTT, brother of the bridegroom, was “best man.”

Master John PINCKARD presented the bride with a silver horseshoe as she left the church.

After the ceremony about 60 guests attended a reception at the Memorial Hall, and later in the day Mr. and Mrs. ADDICOTT left for Cornwall, where the honeymoon is being spent.
