    Notes 
    • MOFFATT-HODGE/POLLOCK-HODGE--The marriage of Mr. William Grieve Moffatt of Hamilton, son of Mr. Frank Moffatt, John Street, this town, to Miss Annie Marguerite Hodge, was solemnized on Wednesday last at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Hodge, at 26 Brighton Row, Eagle Place, was the scene of a very pretty double wedding this afternoon at 1 o'clock when their 2 daughters were united in marriage, Miss Annie Marguerite to Mr. William Grieve Moffatt of Hamilton, and Miss Teresa Gertrude to Mr. John George Pollock of Paris. They were unattended. Rev. Andrew Imrie of Immanuel Baptist church performed the ceremony, the bridal couples standing before a bank of ferns in a large marquee which had been erected on the lawn. The brides were both exquisitely gowned. Miss Annie in cream silk, with chiffon and applique trimmings, and carrying a shower bouquet of carnations and smilax, and Miss Teresa in a becoming gown of spotted Swiss muslin with valenciennes trimmings, and carrying similar flowers as her sister. They also wore bridal veils of lace, with a wreath of lilies of the valley. The two little flower girls, Marjorie Bowden and Freda Burton, and the four ribbon girls, Ruth Peachey, Doris Smail, Twilla Doris, and Stella Reynolds, were all in white silk and looked very pretty. Luncheon was served on the lawn and the usual congratulatory speeches were given. Many out of town guests were present, Paris, Hamilton, Toronto, Ingersoll, Palmerston, Wingham, all being represented. Both Mr. and Mrs. Moffatt and Mr. and Mrs. Pollock took the train for Toronto and other points east. The brides' going away gowns were almost identical both being of blue ladies cloth, with pretty hats to match. After the honeymoon trip is concluded, Mr. and Mrs. Moffatt will go to Hamilton, where they will reside and Mr. and Mrs. Pollock will come to Brantford, where they will be at home at 26 Brighton Row. The presents were very numerous being of the most beautiful and expensive nature and are a criterion of the esteem and affection in which both young couples were held by their unusually large circles of acquaintances

      The Second Case of Smallpox Discovered
      The victim is Wm. Moffat, who is employed at the International Harvester Company's works.

      A second case of small pox has been discovered in the city and it is quite likely now that the history of this second case is known that others will follow in its train. This second case comes form the boarding house of a woman named Kitchen at 182 Hughson Street North. The victim is WM. Moffat a foreman in one of the departments of the International Harvester works. The man was off work for three or four days last week feeling ill and on Friday a rash and pimples broke out on his body and in his throat. Following the appearance of the pimples he felt better and went to work working on Saturday and Monday with the disease in its papular stage. He then again saw his Physician and was at once isolated in the boarding house. The disease devolved rapidly and last night after an examination by the medical health officer it was quite clear that he had smallpox. He was taken at once to the isolation quarters.
      Moffat is a young man and unmarried. He was never vaccinated and he is now suffering from a moderately severe attack of the disease. The inmates of the boarding house-eight in all- have been isolated and vaccinated. Twenty five people who had their meals in the house have all been vaccinated and are under surveillance. It is important for the health authorities to tell how many people have been in contact with Moffatt during the time he had the disease and was working. He mixed with the men at the Deering works and in the boarding house and rode on the street cars to and form work. All the authorities can do is wait developments. In the meantime all the employees of the Harvester works are being vaccinated and such precautions taken as will detect the decease quickly if it appears again. Some of the men at the works refuse to be vaccinated and this is causing hard feeling in the works. In fact there is a good deal of complaining among the English speaking men in this industry over the foreigners who are employed there. They say that if some of these foreigners had smallpox it would be impossible for a physician to know it owing to the amount of dirt on their bodies.
      The health authorities are preparing at the isolation quarters to meet whatever epidemic may develop and a tent has been erected for additional patients. Dr. Langrill says that this second case could not have been an outcome of the first the incubation period being too long for this to be. The germ is located in the works somewhere he thinks and may never be located
