Miss Hilda Slayter, one of the first class passengers saved from the Titanic was coming back to Canada on the Titanic to marry Mr Reginald Lacon, one of the big ranch owners of British Colombia, and son of the late Hon. Mr. Lacon. Miss Slater, who is a Halifax girl, and a sister of the captain of Queen Victoria's private yacht had been in England and France visiting among friends and incidentally collecting a beautiful trousseau in view of her coming marriage to Mr. Lacon. The trousseau will of course be lost, but we may well imagine that the coming bride will be none the less welcome for that.
