TWhy, we never hear of a marriage there at all, but often do we hear the tinkettling going on in our town, and sometimes,too,when we hardly' expect it. ' Speaking to iyounig man from Balmattum, when: the above-mentioned paragraph came under my notice, he said, in a half-and-half tone, "I expect some of them will be going shortly."
