feels that it would be far wiser to send some
thing useful, so that the gifts may escape tha

stored away in trunks or deposited in tha
vaults arid safes of banks.

who had negotiated or favored their mar
riage. The custom of sticking coins on the
bridegroom's forehead hi common to several
Eastern races, among 01 tiers to the Turco
man, and Muors of West Bnrhary. The
bridegroom on these occasions is placed within
a circle of dancers, and tha guesu aud by
standers, wetting small coins, place them on
his foreheaiL All the money thus collected is
added to the dowry of the couple. As the
roins are put on tho bridegroom's forehead
the attending servants shake them off into a
basket, which is placed in his lap, his eyes
being meanwhile shut, and the name of the
donor and the value of the gift are announced.
orVE AKD TAKK.
With modern Arabians the bridegroom
makes the bride presents, which are sent a
day or two before the nuptials. As soon as
the bride reaches the bridegroom's house she
makes him presents of household furniture, a
spear and a tent. The marriage contract
among the Persians stipulates for the settle
ment of numerous presents, iu addition to a
certain sum of money. If the bridegroom is
in moderate circumstances he gives the bride
two complete drewes, a ring and a mirror.
Be also supplies the furniture, carpets, mat,
culinary utensils and other necessaries for
their borne. Presents are exchanged between
the bride and britlegnvim on the eveuing be
fore an Armenian wedding.
The introduction of the Chinese method in
the United States would revolutionize the
present etiquette in respect to present mak
ing. With the Celestials the family of the
bridegroom make presents to the funuly of
thebndeof various articles a few duvs be
fore the day fixed for marriage. The pres
ents generally consist of food, a nvk and
ben, the leg and foot of a pig, the leg of a
gnat, eight small cakes of bread, eight
torches, three pairs of large red candles, a
quantity of vermicelli and several bum-hes
of firecrackers. Two or three days liefore
the time died for the wedding a red card is
sent by the family of the bride to that of the
bridegroom, stating the quantity of furni

Swedish brides ul to receive from their
friends a pig, sheep or cow, and from the

the wealthier class the couple sat on a raised
platform under a canopy of silk on their
wedding day, and their presents, consisting
of plate. Jewels and money, were arranged on

The fee for the officiating priest at a wed

filled with a highly seasoned mince of differ
ent kinds of meat, and also a bottle or two
of brandy. Every guest at a Norwegian
wedding brought the bride a present. In
manv parts a keg of butter was the usual
gift, and if tiie mnrriage took place in the
winter, salted or frozen meat was offered.
Among the early Germans money was given
to the bride s relatives on tus wedding day,
but this usage was not followed ir the mar
riage happened to be an unequal one. Men
of rank who had lost their wives, hut had
children, in order to avoid burdening their
states, married low born women. who, bring
ing no fortune, were not entitled to dower.
In suob cases the husband gave bis wife such
gifts as a pair of oxen for plowing, a har

The morgeiigahe, or morning gift, was
probably founded ou the custom of the hus
band making presents. At first the morgen-
f-abe was a present made by the husband to
his wife on the morning after his marriage.
Sometime It was a cbum of gold or a jewel,
and at others a portion of the husbaud's for
tune. Formerly such a present was given at
every marriage, but biter only at the wed
dings of the nohility. This custom was often
carried to great excess, the bride having the
privilege of asking for any urn of money, or,
In fact, anything that she pleased, and which

The weddings in Wales were characterized
by several curious customs, among which the
''Bidding" was one of the most interesting.
The richer people sent circular letters to the
guests by a paid bidder or iuviter, in which
letters it was stated that any donations would
be thankfully received. In later vears the
custom of sending bidding letters was so com
mon throughout Wales that the printer, kept
bidding forms in type, New ork ritar.
