A MARRIAGE MARKET.
Curious Customs Among ti
Penasnis of the Clpariptiiant's
Once a -ear, on the occasion
the feast of St. Peter and St. Pat
a market is held on the summniit
the Gaina, one of the Carpathia
mountains. 6,000 feet al.ove s
evel. at which al1 the marring
ble nmaidens of the region rout
Wbout assemble, that they mlay
wooed and won by the men of tl
neighborhood, who can afford
ta!;e unto themselves wives.
The preparations for this day o
cupy the time and attention of 1.
girls for months previous. Th
are collecting a dowry t hich tht.
hring with thelmi and cxhiiiit :t t
market. This is carefully .packc
in a richly-carvtd or guily-Ipinitc
lox, which is strspped on the :a.c
of the best h!orse the family po
A certain number of cattle an;
Lee-hives are also on exhliition i
tents (each expectant bride havii
her owii tent), over which mnctiL.i
of her famil3 preidel. hialf of t(
beasts and hives are pledged to d
fray the expenses of the im..rke
the other half go to the bridegroon
Then the iletn ptttie accompanic
by their fGt mil;es also, or by arilt
cratic patronls, 1t.inging with thei
whaint movable worldily possessioe
they own, and always a lovel
girdle of silver or gold, which
fastened around the brides wai
after, the selection has been mad
At the public betrothal, whie
then takes place .before the "he
mits of Gaina," handkerchiefs ii
stead of rings aire exchainged as
sign of betrothal. Girls whoatten
this market, with their d.w: i,.
seldom leave it without an a
tcndiint lover, for the market i
little more than a rendezvous f,
such couples as are prepared t
aninoence to th ic little t orl l14'
Those l:,i::ss wiho have nit,
