Miss Ada L. A. Murcutt, F.R.S.G.S., well known in Australia as traveller and organiser for the Woman’s Christian Temperance Union, and as a most able and attractive speaker and lecturer, was married on March 1 to the Rev. Arthur T. Robinson, M.A., of Correstoga, Summerland, British Columbia, Canada (says the “South Australian Register”). The ceremony was performed by the Rev. Dr. Spencer in the first Baptist Church, Vancouver. On the previous evening an illuminated address and a silver tea service were presented to the bride by representatives of the local option workers of the province in recognition of her splendid services to the movement as organiser and speaker during the past year. It may be added that some years ago Mrs. Robinson laboured for a considerable time in Western Australia in the cause of temperance and the emancipation of women.
