I feel my life has just begun," the groom, William WALLACE, a retired coalminer, replied.

Asked about a honeymoon, Mr. WALLACE said they would be busy with household chores in their neat weatherboard cottage for a while, but might go away later. "It is too hot just now for a honeymoon," he said.

Some Old Timers
" Battler " writes:--
In the last two days two of the city's very old-time residents have gone to the Great Beyond. Mrs. BARNES, the mother of Mr. Tom BARNES, of Messrs.TUCKER and NANKIVELL, died at the great age of 94 years. The lady was also the mother of the late Mrs. R.G. TUCKER. Mrs. BARNES landed at Melbourne in 1853 and came onto Rockhampton in the early sixties.
Tom BEVIS, who used to be the best known man about town, has also "painted" his last scene. Tom BEVIS, who was born in England, arrived in Rockhampton in 1862 or 1863, and was 91 years and 6 months at the time of his death. He was early connected with the Scandinavian Hall, a free-for-all music hall erected on the corner of Denham and Little East Streets. Tom must have been a pretty tactful manager to be able to handle the rough crowds who used to frequent the hall. The visitors comprised both sexes--and it was no trouble to buy into a row.
BEVIS used to sing old-time songs, one favourite among the people being the " Blue Tail Fly." For some time after Tom was known as " Billy BARLOW." he was naturally gifted and was clever as a signwriter and scene painter. He painted the scenery at the School of Arts and the old Theatre Royal, and he also used to handle all the posters for the travelling companies. In those days Mr. R.G. TUCKER'S [senr] place of business was at the corner of Denham and Alma streets. Tom BEVIS used to paint the names on the coffin plates. BEVIS could have written wonderful theatrical history of early Rockhampton, as he was associated with all the old companies from the 60's down to the 80's. He was always rather reserved and in latter years very deaf, which made him irritable. He spent a lot of time in the School of Arts. He is the last link with the old theatrical profession of the early days. BEVIS married in Rockhampton at the age of 21 years and leaves a family of five children.
