MARRIAGE AT THE FRIENDS' MEETING HOUSE.—On Wednesday last, in the presence of a large number of relatives and friends, a marriage was solemnised at the Friends' Meeting House, Queen's Road, between Thomas Walter Pumphrey, Summer Hill Grove, Newcastle-on-Tyne, and Emily Knight, daughter of Joseph Harrison Knight, of Leeds. Pray having been offered, the contracting parties made the usual declaration, after which Mr John Stansfield, registering officer, read the certificate of marriage. The certificate having been signed and witnessed, addresses were delivered by Mr. Thomas Pumphrey and Mr. John Stansfield, and Mrs. Richardson. After the conclusion of the ceremony the wedding party partook of breakfast at the Wells House. The bride wore a dress of pale primrose, and carried a bouquet of white flowers. The bride and bridegroom left during the afternoon for the south of England en route for the Channel Islands, where they intend spending the honeymoon.

When the sheriff and his attendants arrived, they found two English gentlemen—Mr. Martyn Pumphrey, Stockton-on-Tees, and Mr. Arnold S. Rowntree, of York—in the yard. District-Inspector Ewart inquired if they were Pressmen, and, receiving a reply in the negative, requested them to go outside the cordon drawn across the entrance to the yard, as none but Pressmen were permitted to advance further. Both immediately left the yard, and were joined later on by another Englishman, Mr. Thos Nesbitt, of Manchester, who with his wife also came to witness the proceedings.

That First Cafe

Mr. MARTYN PUMPHREY, of the firm of sugar millers, of which he is one of the principals at Thornaby-on-Tees, has sent me an interesting note on the first cafe in Newcastle.

Glasgow, he observes, justly claims to be the Mother of Tea Rooms, and he ventures to claim for his native Newcastle the title of Father of Cafes—meaning grocery cafes as distinct from tea rooms run by bakery confectioners.

"In 1887," he places on record, "Pumphrey's Cafe was opened at 44, Cloth Market, where it was my privilege to roast the first pound of coffee in the window for my father, Thomas Pumphrey."

Death of Mr. M. Pumphrey

The death has occurred at his home, Meadowcroft, Nunthorpe, Middlesbrough, of Mr. Martyn Pumphrey, in his 77th year.

A year or two ago he retired from the firm of W. and M. Pumphrey Ltd., sugar millers, and was well-known in the trade. He leaves a widow, four sons and one daughter.

He was the youngest son of the late Mr. Thomas Pumphrey, the head of the firm of Thomas Pumphrey and Sons, grocers, of Newcastle, with whom he served his apprenticeship
