      St Mary's Catholic Church, Batlow, was the scene of a pretty wedding on Wednesday, February 23, when Violet, fourth daughter of Mrs. V. O'Grady and the late R.

Fathers Hanrahan, of Tumbarumba. and Cochrane, of Tarcutta, were also present.

Miss Kathleen O'Grady, sister of the bride, was bridesmaid, and wore a pink bouffard old world frock of stitched net and ribbon, with a halo of stiffened tulle, and carried a bouquet similar to the bride's.

      During the Mass the choir, with Miss Monica Kelly at the organ, rendered the Loretto Mass, and during the signing of the register Mrs. L. C. Wooldridge sang an 'Ave Maria.'
