Mrs. Ross had one arm splintered and other injuries; Mr. Ross had his collar bone broken, several teeth knocked out, one arm badly cut and other injuries.

Alice B. Elliot - Harold E. Noyes:

Yesterday afternoon, at three o'clock, in the Methodist Church in this town, Alice B. Elliot and Harold E. Noyes were united in marriage by the Rev. R. S. Barker, Rev. Mr. G. W. Clark of the Congregational Church assisting. The friends and relatives of the bride and groom filled the little church to almost its capacity before the ceremony began.

As the old-time strains of Lohengrin's Wedding March, played by Miss Bernice Godfrey, sounded from the church organ the bridal party marched slowly from the back to the arch of autumn leaves at the altar where the two ministers were waiting.

Six ushers were followed by six bridesmaids, and maid of honor; then came the bride, on her father's arm, preceded by the flower girl. The groom and best man came down the opposite aisle, joining the bride and maid of honor under the arch.

The double ring ceremony was very beautiful and was participated in by both ministers.

The bride was attired in a white satin gown, set off by filet panels and wore a wedding veil caught up with orange blossoms. The maid of honor wore peach-colored crepe de chine and a picture hat to match. The brides maids and flower girl were attired in rainbow colored organdies and carried staffs. William Elliot, a brother of the bride, sang a solo, "Oh Promise Me," accompanied by Miss Katherine Barker on the piano, after the blessing of the minister had fallen on the young couple.

The bridal party were: Miss Nanette MacLaine, Hyde Park, Mass., maid of honor; Roland Noyes, brother of the groom, best man; the Misses Gertrude MacLaine, Hyde Park, Mass., Jean MacKenzie, Goshen, N. Y., Margaret Noyes, Hampstead, N. H., Marion Noyes, Isabelle Thompson and Greta Myers, Hampton, N. H.,. bridesmaids; Dean Merrill, Clayton Johnson, Wallace Blake, Robert and William Elliot, Hampton, and George Emerson, Hampstead, ushers; and little Margaret Noyes, Hampton, flower girl.

The bride was the recipient of many beautiful and valuable presents from a host of friends, both in Hampton and from out of town. The presents were on display at the home of the bride preceding the wedding. The bride's present to the groom was a Masonic charm and the groom presented the bride with a necklace of pearls.

An informal reception followed in the vestry.

Relatives of the bride and groom were present, from Hampstead, Haverhill, Atkinson, Hyde Park, Everett, and Peabody, Mass., Goshen, N. Y., and Wiscasset and Kennebunk, Maine.

Mr. and Mrs. Noyes stopped at Hampton Beach last evening and today will start on a tour through Maine.
