and she promptly moved over on top

As the conductor approached the
following dialogue took place:
"Two," said Maria, handing over
"One?" ho questioned as his eyes
searched the seat.
"Madame, I can only accept fare
for one. Your size has nothing to
do with it"
"Sir; would you insult a lady?"
"Never, madame. But where's the
pasaenger you wish to pay for?"
Maria gave over an inch or two

Marriages in China are celebrated
at the hom of the bridegroom, not
of ths brido, says a writer in the
May Wide World Magazine. Before
quitting her own house the bride is
arrayed in her best dress and jewels,
her hair is elaborately arranged and
she wrars a large hat. A mantle is
then thrown about her head and a
red silk cloth is placed over her face.
Her mother then puts her in a gilt
sedan chair, used only for weddings,
and locks her in, giving the key to
one of the attendants, who delivers
it to the bridegroom when the pro
cession arrives at the lntter's home.
No priest or magistrate officiates at
the marriage. The happy pair, the
bride still veiled, enters the ances
tral hall together and bow three
times to the family tablets, after

which arc two cups of wine nn of
fering intended to propitiate the an
cestors of the family. They next en
ter I he reception chamber, where the
husband removes the veil and mantle
from his wife, seeing her face, per
haps for the first time. The guests
and friends then enter the room,
gaze upon the blushing bride and
convey their felicitations to the
happy pair. A wedding banquet is
held in the evening, at which the
bride, very tactfully, pays especial
attention to her pnrciiis-iii-law.
