bridegroom oriduavoring to force the ring on
to the bride's t humb; but there was juist a sus
picion that he had been nuikir.g merry before
coming to clu rch that morniiig. The same
excuse could i ot be offered for a bridegroom
from whom I could pet no word of response,
not even a sulky "I will." The situation was
becoming nnt embarrassing, when the soli
tary bi-idcmai I his sister casually observed:
"'K'sa littlo'ard of Varing, sir." The man
was stone deaf; yet they had not thought it
necessary to tell the urson. If the bride
groom understood not a word of the service,
wbftt did it matter?
TWISTING THE IlKSPONSKS.
But the ma-Tiage service from first to last
Is full of pitlidls for the unlearned man. In
some cases it iHjcomes painfully clear that the
contracting parties retwgni but few of the
words they are bidden to say, and merely im
itate the soirnd with such accuracy as their
imperfect knowledge will permit Tho words
"to have and to hold" ouifht to lie simple
enough, but, as a matter of fact, they are the
subjects of seme astounding blunders. I re
member ono hridegroom who had brought a
verycharmirg young bride to church, anil
perhaps regarded her as a thing of beauty to
be in his home a joy forever, rendering "to
have and to I old" an "to have and behold,"
Another, who possibly had some cause to
dread the fate of Mr. Cuu.llo, struck out an
entirely new version, and faithfully promised
"tohavoand to be told." "To love and to
cherish" is ar other frightful stumbling block.
"To love and be cherries." waa the nearest to
the original of many variations" popular
among tho males of that parish. The brides
were happy with the familiar rendering, "to
love cherries and to bay." "God's holy ordi
nance" trippul up many. "Holy orders" was
convenient, tnd perhaps conveyed the most
meaning. " Plight thee my troth" and "give
thee my troth" were, I imagine, words of
foreign soui d, anil I well remember one
young iK-rsoi, who was wedding a most vil
lainous look mj fellow, changing her senti
ment into "t hereto I give thee my throat."
There was, p.-rhaiis, an unconscious prophecy
wrapped up in that promise.
The words accompanying the delivery of
the ring aro, as everybody knows, the subject
of some ch iracteri-siic blunders. I never
heard some of the more elaborate distortions
credited to c juntryincn, but our people nobly
distinguished themselves over the clause
"with all my worldly goods I thee endow."
They never blundered so apUy as the fortune
buutor who, in wedding an heiress, unwit
tingly said, "with ail my goodly words I thee
endow;" tbi-y were content to produce a
similar soun 1 with a sublime indifference to
sense. "I thee and thou." "I thee do bow,"
"I thee allow," were tli most popular of
A C LOSE CALL FOR BIGAMY.
Cut nothing moreclcarly indicates the utter
lack of intelligence with which some of the
po;r regard the service of the church than
tho fact tha: once upon a t i.no I came upon a
youthful curate solemnly and devoutly
marrying tl e father of a bridegroom to the
mother of I. is bride in tho presence of their
own proper partners. The discovery was
brought aU ut in this way. It was Christmas
morning, a great time for weddings, since
Boxing day then remained for tho houey
mona Sev-n or eight coup), had given
notice, and the congregation was largo.
While ono curate registered the couples in
tho vestry another married them in
succession with such emlition as a
slight stutter would permit. The old
parish clu k, with his list of names,
railed up th s high contracting parties as the
turn of each came. I superintended the
whole proceedings. In tho vestry were two
young jieople being registered, whose names
were, let Uf say, Jones and Smith. Coming
around to the ehnnccl again one was a little
surprised t find the old clerk Inquiring
among the congregation for a Mr. Smith and
a Mrs. or SI iss Jones. When I next looked in
his direction he had brought up to the chan
cel steps a gentleman weil stricken in years
and dressed In a sleeved waistcoat. The
bride was a broad, comely woman, whose
turned up sleeves loft bare two monstrous
crimson arras, (tppress.ul by an uncomfort
able suspicion I hurried to tho vestry, and
there found tho young people, Jones and
Smith, just paving tho fees.
"Is your father herer said I to the bride
groom. "Yes, sir "
"Is your mother here?" to the bride.
"Yes, sir "
"JJow," taid I to .Tones the younger, "look
through th s door and tell me if that is your
father hem? married there."
"Well, sir," returned Jones, after a leis
urely iuspe aiou, "he's having it read over to
"Is your mother alive?"
"She's in church."
It was llie work of an instant to rush
around ami stop the service. Eut when the
people were dragged asunder, Jones, the
elder, in reply to an indignant inquiry as to
what he Meant by it, coolly replied: "Well,
he," (indicating the penitent clerk with a jerk
of his grimy thumb) "he told us to come
this way." That couple bad been charged by
mention of "the dreadful day of judgment,
when the secrets of all hearts shall be dis
closed," to say whether they knew any im
pediment why they might not lawfully be
joined together in matrimony; and they
heard it sUence. So did the wife of the one
and the husband of the other. I have often
wondered bow far they would have gone
without n monstrance. Perhaps the demand
for a ring would have precipitated tho crUis.

BLOWN FROM A GUN.
The Terrible Punishment Administered to
During the Sepoy rebellion of 185? -58 many
of the mutineers were blown away from the
guns. It was a terrible punishment, one
which bad lieen inflicted a century before at
the first mutiny of the Bengal army in 1764.
A battalion of Sepoys had seized and impris
oned its English officers and vowed it would
serve no more. A strong hand arrested the
mutiny at its beginning. Twenty-four Sepoys
were tried by a drum head court martial,
found guilty and sentenced to be blown away
from the cannon.
On the day of the execution the troops were
drawn up, English and Sepoys, the guns
were loaded, and the prisoners led forth to
suffer the terrible penalty.
The word of command was given for the
first four criminals to be tied up to the muz
zles of the guns. As the men were being
bound four tall, stately grenadiei-s stepped
forward from among tho condemned Sepoys,
saluted tho commander, Maj. Hector Munro,
chief of the Bengal army, and asked that as
thoy had always held the post of honor in
life they might bo given the precedence in
death, as it was their due. The request was
granted. The grenadiers ware tied to the
guns and blown to pieces.
A murmur ran through the Seoy battal
ions, who greatly outnumliered the English
troops, and it seemed as if they were about
to rescuo their companions, the twenty con
Tho officers of the native regiments ap
proached Munro and told him that their men
were not to be trusted, as they had deter
mined not to permit the execution to proceed.
The chief knew that on the issue of that
parade for execution depended the fate of the
The English troops were few and there was
scarcely a man among them not moved to
tears by the fearful death of the four grena
diers. But tho commander knew tbey could
le trusted to defend the guns, which, turned
upou the Seixjys, would defeat any attempt
to rescue their comrades.
Maj. Munro closed the English on to tho
battery the grenadiers on ono side, the ma
rines on the other and loaded the pieces with
grape. Then he sent the Sepoy officers back
to their battalion and gave the native regi
monts the word of command, "Ground arms!"
They know it would be madness to disobey
in presence of the loaded guns and laid down
"Right about face! Forward march 1"
was the nest command.
Tha Sepoys marched a distance from their
grounded arms, and the English soldiers, with
guns, took ground on the intervening space.
The danger had passed away. The native
troops were at Munro's riorcy, and the execu
tion went on to its dreadful close. The sacri
fice of a few lives saved thousands. Kayes

Contest for a Husband.
An edict from the empress appeared an
nouncing that Yeh-hon-na-ta, the daughter
of the Manchu brigadier general, Kwei-siang
(younger brother of the empress), had toen
selected as the consort of the youthful em
peror of China, and that two girls named Tata-la,
daughters of Chanshuh, a Manchu vice
president of the Pekin board, aged 15 and 13
years respectively, had been chosen for the
harem. Tho emperor's marriage will take
place, according to present arrangements, on
the 23d of next February, a time which the
Astronomical board has ascertained, or at all
events has declared, to be propitious.
The process of selecting the emperor's con
sort is interesting. After two inspections, at
considerable intervals, the number of candi
dates was reduced to thirty-one, who are
daughters of mandarins of above the fourth
rank, and, of oourso, of Manchu extraction.
Theso thirty-one young ladies were conveyed
in carts to the palace on the night of the 27th
ult., or rather in the early morning of the
2Sth, at 2 o'clock. They entered by the
"Gate of the Southern Sea," which they
crossed in six boats, and wore conducted to
tho palaco, which thoy reached at 3 a. m. A
splendid banquet was then spread before
them, after which they were ushered into
the presence of her majesty the empress
dowager by groups of four and fiva It may
interest the ladies to know that her majesty
wore on one occasion an apricot yellow
silk long dress, with a black velvet jack
et. Each girl carried a tablet bearing her
name and ago, also the name of her father,
lanncr, etc., which was presented to the em
press while the girl stood before her. After
some interrogations, and in no few cases even
monitory words for having continued to shave
the forehead, her majesty formed her opin
ion of the candidate, which, when unfavcr
ablo, was signified by handing the girl's
tablets to one of the eunuchs with the order
to present the rejected aspirant with a roll of
silk. The girl with the silk was then taken
back to her cart, never more to participate in
the imperial matrimonial comjjetition.
The selection of a new empress inflicts a
serious burden on many poor mon whose
daughtere are eligible and must be presented,
but who have little means to defray the ex
penses incidental to Journeying to Pekin and
frequent visits to the palace. Most of them
pray to be put out of their misery at the
first inspection, and those who survive to the
lost and are then rejoctcd are really to bo
pitied. North China News.
An Indian Legend.
The early Indian tribes who inhabited
Mount Deeert believed that the Garden of
Eden was situated at that spot, and accord
ing to their legends, when the white man
gave the name of Eden to one part of the isl
and, it was only coming to its own again.
Strange as it may seem, the primeval father
of the Maine red mau was a youth with
golden hair and eyes like tho hazelberry, tall
and of great beauty. The Eve who came to
him Just when his loneliness was getting un
supportable first appeared coming through
the clouds. Hor first exclamation at seeing
him was the Indian for "Oh, dear I"
She at once cutoff his golden locks and
began to weave them into a strong cord,
growing larger as she proceeded. At a sug
gestion from Monicho, the god of evil de
signs, the man took the cord from her and
bound her with it, when she ceased growing,
but did not stop working. The next thing
she did was to bend down a tall, green stalk
near her and gather from it its golden seeds,
which she made into bread, being thus the
discoverer of Indian corn. The couple, after
teaching their children how to raise and use
this grain, were translated to the constella
tion of tho stars known as the Sickle, whence
they watch over their earthly home. Lewis
