Bridegroom Seized with Illness

Fish MarketOn Saturday another Dundee marriage party had a disappointment in store for them, the circumstances leading up to the postponement of the ceremony being of a peculiarly distressing character.A young man well known in cricketing and business circles in the city was on Saturday to have been joined in wedlock to a local lady, and a considerable party had been invited to assemble in a hotel in the city to give the pair a hearty send-off on their matrimonial career.

In the course of this afternoon, however telegraphic messages were dispatched to the guests cancelling the invitation the explanation being that the bridegroom was suddenly seized with illness during the night.

Under Fed School Children

Dundee Board and the Question
The question of providing food for under fed children at school came under the notice of Dundee School Board on Tuesday, when the members were again considering the new Education Bill. Rev Henry Williamson urged that they should call the attention of the government to the question and point out the necessity for something being done to see that children were not sent to school unless they were sufficiently fed. Mr John Harris proposed that they should ask that a clause should be introduced into the bill granting power to Boards to provide an allowance for the feeding of underfed children and that the teachers in the various schools should have a discretionary power in administering the fund.

A Row at the Tea Table

At Dundee Police Court yesterday John Petrie, Rosebank Street, a young man of 20 years of age was charged with disorderliness. His mother stated that on 3rd May last, while she was preparing tea he demanded to be supplied first and because she would not comply with this request he cursed and swore at her. Mrs Petrie afraid that he would ruin teatime for other members of the family reported the incident to the police.

Bailie Henderson said a little time to think over his misdeeds would do Petrie no harm and sentenced him to thirty days.
