Cochran. The arrangements for the wedding were charming in their simplicity and only relatives and a few close friends witnessed the ceremony. As the guests were assembling an organ recital was given by Miss. Hermoine Biggs.

    The Bishop of Washington. Right Rev. James E. Freeman, a lifelong friend of the bride's family, who officiated at the marriages of the bride's sister, Mrs. Newbold Noyes, and four of her brothers, performed the ceremony.

    The bride walked to the altar with her father who gave her in marriage. Her wedding gown was lovely, fashioned of ivory satin on graceful princess lines, the bodice designed with a bertha of rose-point lace and long, fitted sleeves. The long train was bordered with rose-point lace and orange blossoms, and her rose-point lace veil was arranged softly about her face. She carried a shower bouquet of white orchids and lilies of the valley. The lace used on the gown and the veil 1 were worn by the bride's mother and her sister. Mrs. Noyes, at their weddings. Newbold Noyes, jr., young nephew of the bride, was the train bearer.

    The third secretary of the British embassy. Mr. Michael Wright, was the best man.

    A wedding breakfast for the small company attending the ceremony, followed at Pine Pillow, the Summer home of the bride's parents. Sweet peas and gladioli were used at the house. Mrs. Ewing, the bride's mother, assisted in receiving guests, wearing a gown of peach-color lace with a hat to match. Later in the day Mr. Stone and his bride left aboard the Ortolan, the yacht of the bride's parents, on their wedding trip. They will be at home later at 1762 K street, this city. Mrs. Stone's going-away costume was a dark blue traveling suit with a hat to match.
