Young - Young Wedding
A large congregation witnessed the marriage of Phyllis, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ambrose Young, of Gadden's Marsh, this town, and Llewellyn, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Young of Upper Island Cove. The ceremony was performed in St. James' Anglican Church by Rev. W. H. B. Gill. The bride entered the church to the strains of the Bridal Chorus played by the organist, Mrs. George Forward. She was given in marriage by her father and was dressed in a light brown costume, with blue accessories and she carried a bouquet of mixed flowers. She was attended by her sister Phyllis and Louise Young, sister of the groom, both wearing red costumes, with white accessories. The groom was supported by Warrick Young, brother of the bride, and Albert Drover, a long-time friend. Following the ceremony the bridal party motored as far a Birch Hill, Bay Roberts, thence to Upper Island Coved where the reception was held in the school hall, with some one hundred and fifty guests in attendance. The happy couple were the recipients of a host of good wishes and numerous presents. They will make their future home in Upper Island Cove. We join with Mr. and Mrs. Young's many friends in wishing them all that is best in the years ahead.

William Barrett
- News was received here on Monday, October 1, of the death at Sydney, Nova Scotia, of William Barrett, a former resident of Spaniard's Bay. He was seventy-six.
Although Mr. Barrett left here many years ago he never lost contact with his old hometown and seldom missed a year that he did not visit here. He was twice married and his second wife, the former Mrs. Julia Bishop, survives him. He is also survived by one daughter, Gertie (Mrs. John Mercer of Sydney) and one sister, Mrs. Eugene Coombs of Upper Island Cove. Mr. Lewis Bishop of Sydney, Mr. Drover Bishop and Mr. Henry Bishop of Spaniard's Bay were stepsons.
Mr. Barrett will be remembered by many, especially those from around Conception Bay, who made his home "a home away from home" during their stay-overs while waiting for boat connections at Sydney. Recompense he never sought nor accepted as he always was proud of the fact that he could give assistance and accommodation to his Newfoundland friends.
He tried hard to be, and was, a friend to everybody who knew him. May his soul rest in peace.
