It is often almost impossible for an
American to secure tho papers necessary
to make a European marriage valid, es
pecially in (iermany. The lovers are fre
quently obliged to wait until they can
repair to somw less inquisitive laud,
where a priest or lc?al functionary will
Jonsent to unite tbn without asking
iuparfluous question When the con
tracting parties are themselves Euro
peans, the formalities are probably for
midable enough, for besides the actual
marriage papers thero are settlement
papers and various preliminary docu
ments to be drawn up. But if you are an
American of course yon aro a suspicions
character, and yon will find it even
doubly difficult to marry tho girl of
your choice. Yon must first prove your
right to live and breathe and have your
being, and your bride must prove her
right to live and breath and have bcr
being, and your father, and your moth
er, and your brido's father, and your
bride's mother must also prove that they
were born in due time and have lived
irreproachably ever after, aud in case
they no louder exercise the functions of
living, breathing aud having their be
ing it must be shown that thev ceased
to do so in a sober and godlike manner.
All this and much more must be set
forth in & quod crat demon strandum
fashion by means of documents beforo
von will bo allowed to bend your neck
to the conjugal yoke.
The truth of these remarks was illus
trated a few weeks ago in Berlin, when
the happiness of two young Americans
hung for a long timo in the balance un
til Gerniau authorities finally consented
to let them join hands and hearts. The
young man was an Egyptologist and
fonnd it necessary to be in Egypt at a
certain time. He hoped to take liis bride
with biiu, but almost npto the last mo
ment he was uncertain whether he
should have a bride to take. For months
he had been trying to bring about this
marriage, but the requirements of the
German law were enough to drive even
a man accustomed to the complications
of the Tel-el-ch-Manah tablets to de
spair. The bride had lived formerly on
the other side of the world, and as there
existed in the cautions German mind
the possibility that sho might have gone
through the marriage ceremony on some
previous occasion it was necessary to
publih tho banns weeks beforehand, not
only in the Berlin papers, but also in
the journals of her native American
town. Both parties wero obliged to se
cure certificates of the birth and bap
tism of themselves and their parents
and to furnish an epitome of the family
histories down to uutn. There is a ru
mor that testimony wns even demanded'
as to the number of times certain rela
tives had been vaccinated and the suc
cess of the operation. The young wom
an's father had died when away from
home, and it was rather difficult to sat
isfy German authorities as to the man
ner of his taking off. Finally all the
papers arrived, and tho couple repaired
one day with their friends and witnesses
to the office of the local functionary in
whose hands their happiness reposed.
Tho legal functionary, f course, had
witnesses on his side. Tho Germans
never transact any business except in
the presence of witnesses. If yon quar
rel with the guard on a railway train,
he immediately summons another guard,
not to settle tho dispute, but to witness
it. They put their two solemn heads to
gether, shake them at each other and at
yon, make copious notes of tbo facts
and finally take themselves off. This
bridal couple and friends wero silently
surveyed by tho baud of witnesses.
Then tho brido was placed in ono chair
and tho bridegroom in another at a re
spectful distance. The papers were pro
duced. The bride told all about herself,
and the bridegroom told all about him
self, and the friends and witnesses told
all a bo nt both of them. The mother of
tbo bride assured the assembled com
pany that this roan was not insidiously
defrauding her of her daughter. The
company began to breathe mine freely.
The bridegroom heaved a sigh of relict
The tired bride moved in her chair
wearily. But tho legal functionary was
not going to lot thein off so easily. He
shook his head over tho papers, pursed
up his lips and then turned on the
whole crowd and asked them fiercely for
their passports. Of come no one bad
such a thing about Mm, so the jaded
bridegroom had to rush off in a drosky
to secure as many aa were necessary.
Meantime a German couple appeared.
Their papers, of course, were all right
The German bridegroom took possession
of the American bridegroom's vacant
chair, and the American bride, who, by
this tinio, waa almost in tears, yielded
her seat to the German bride. By the
time they had been safely launched upon
the sea of married life the passports bad
been found, and the Americana again
took the chairs and were finally made
man and wife, to the satisfaction of the
legal functionary, themselves and their
That wasn't all, of course. Tbey bad
to rush off, after the legal functionary's
fee bad been paid, to do honor to the
ordinary conventionalities, array them
selves in festal robes and be married
again by a minister who spoke the Eng
lish tongue, shake hands with their 600
friends and catch the first train for

that a simple remedy for removing the

preliminaries of organisation mill be
determined, tbe membership of the

gone into tbe Western league,
having an 8-elub league. ItT-ck-lord
