NOTES FROM RANDOM

DURING the winter many of the people of Random have been employed in cutting wood for Mr. N. Gardner of Foster’s Point. Several schooners have been built and others repaired during the winter season.

FISHERMEN are now getting their traps, etc., ready for the fishery season. There is a sign of fish, and prospects look bright. The slate quarries are affording much employment. The people are now prosperous and attribute their good fortune to the policy of progress of the Bond Government.

A NEW Anglican Church is in course of construction at Hodge’s Cove, and friends in St. John’s contributed liberally; a hundred dollars was raised in the city. The Rural Dean, Rev. G. N. Field, recently paid a visit to this Mission.

A PRETTY wedding took place at Northern Bight., The contracting parties were Mr. W. J. Cooper of Grate’s Cove and Miss Lily Ann Churchill of Northern Bight, daughter of the lay reader. The bride was attended by Miss Laura Benson and others. The groom was supported by Mr. William Churchill. The bride was charmingly attired in white. After the ceremony a repast was partaken at the residence of the bride’s parent. The happy couple have taken up their residence at Grate’s Cove. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. A. G. Tulk, the Incumbent of Random.
