Tbe trannition of the custom of using a
ring at marriages from barbarism and pa
ganism into tha Christian church was quit
as easy as tha adoption of tha forms of pagan
worship. It was probably taken from tha
pagans of Italy as a part of tha marriaga
ceremony. When the public betrothal final
ly became nearly obsolete, its evidence be
came the engagement ring, now used uni
versally, while tha use of a ring at weddings
at now peculiar to certain church organiza
tions. The position of the ring on the hand has
long bxeii a matter of difference. In early
times, by classical ancii'nta, the betrothal
ring was placed on the left hand and on the
finger next tha least, under tha impression
that that particular finger was more closely
connected with the heart than tha others.
In early Knglixh niarrinKee the ,-talibury
Manual" provided that the bridegroom was
to receive tha ring from the priest with the
three principal lingers of bis right hand;
then, holding the rilit hand of the bride
wttb his own left baud, he was to say, "With
this ring I thee wed." He then placed the
ring on her right thumb and said, "In the
nam of th Father;" then on the second
Anger, and sai.i, "and Son," then on the
third finger, and said, "and Holy Ghost,"
and filially on tlie fourth finger, aud saitL
"Amen," where it remain.!. Wearing the
wedding ring on the thumb was not uncom
mon during the reign of tlie first aud second
Georges, in which oition it is seen in con

In the English church the use of a ring at a
wedding ceremony is essential, it being re
quire.! by tlie rubric. The kind, size or qual
ity of the ring is not stipulated, and there are
on record marriages in England in which bed
curtain rings, church keys and even ring
cut transversely from a finger of a kid glove,
have been ued. Ho far as our invextigation
has eutcred into these curious but interesting
facts we do not remember to have seen any
raae in which the ring of a church bell was
The natives of Malalwr had a custom early
in th present ceutury, which, for the pecu
liar use of the ring in the marriage ceremony,
is very marke.L The l.rulo aud groom being
seated on a throue, tlie woman's neck and
head were decorated with jewels and flowers.
The groom's feet were washed with milk by
a youug relative, who also puts a silver ring
upon his to. The groom, as if to return the
compliment and go the young relation one
better, decorate the attendant's finger with
a gold ring, after which the ceremonies pro-
The Italians, always lovers of artistic or
namentation, used U-trotbal rings of silver

to represent sleeve, from each issued a right

the giving of tae betrothal ring was a public
Amoug the modern Greek peasants the
wedding ceremony is one of much form aud
little solemnity, there being much which Is
allegorical iu the performance. Two rings, a
gold and a silver one, are interchanged be
tween the contracting jwties, the ceremony
being concluded by both drinking wine from
one cup. In the regular ritual of the Greek
cburcli, which is the prevailing worship in
Russia, the betrothal ceremony was separate
inmi the marriage and was conducted by the
priest, who, after hleing a grid and a silver
ring, gave the gold ring to the groom and
the silver ring to the bride and rejieated the
form of the espousal, the rings being placed
ou tberhjht bun. N of the (arties. The grooms
man then changed the rings in order that the
bride would not feel the inferiority i:nplied
by the less costly material from a bich the
silver riug was made, as well as to indicate
the common ownership of property.
Till MOTHERS PLEASANT Dt'TT.
Iu Armenia the mother performs the pleas
ant duty of selecting a buland for her
daughter, and as she probably selected some
youug fe.low for whom she bud a fancy,
there was undoubtedly saved much of the ac
rimonious discussion which usually occurs
twtween a man and his mother iu law. After
the terms of marriage were agreed 1141011, the
bridegroom's mother, aircompanied by a
priest and two matrons, visited the bride and
gave her a ring as a token of espousal. They
were afterward married with a ring.
Iu Java, where marriage occurs at a very
tender ae, the courtship u carried on bv the
parents, the children not bring allowed to in
terfere, and a ring is given the girl as an e 1
duc that th engagement is binding. In
Iceland a large ring, variously formed of
bune, stoue, jet, gold and sliver, was used as
a ratification of engagement. It was large
enough to permit the groom to pass his four
fingers and palm through it, in w hich band
be received the bride's baud during the be
trothal. Occasionally these ceremonial rings
were placed upon the altar and there uaed.
This may be a modification of an old custom
prevalent in the Orkneys, w her th contract
ing parties joined bands through a perfora
tion or riug in a stone pillar.
In Ireland many of th asantry believe
that marriage without the use of a gold ring
Is illegal, and at one town, at least, person
kept wedding rings for hire. In Claddngh,
at Gal way, nuptial ring of very ancient
patterns are found among the fishermen's
wives, they having descended through many
generations as heirlooms.
In America the custom of giving rings to
indicate the betrothal, and their use at wed
dings. Is general, few churches rejecting this
silent emblem of a compact which should be
endless. It is a strange thing that custom
once established should follow down century
after century, aud become as widespread as
mankind tuelf. The use of an engagement
ring gives plenty of opportunity to the Jew
eler for judicious suggestion, aud Droeoective
I bridegroom should be urged in purchasing
any Jewel, to insist upou its nawleas purity.
A diamond la believed to be the favorite
gem, but as its sue with the vulgar is sup
posed to bear some proportion to the fortune
of the giver, ladies of delicacy prefer smaller
settings. John K. Allen In the Jeweler.
The lady Rent Collector.
Miss Octavia Hill, the English philanthro
pist, origiuated the "lady rent collector,"
w bo has since become a well known featare
In London poor districts. The lady rent col
lector, as a rule, takes charge of a "block" of
workingmen's dwellings. Hhe not only col
lects the weekly rent and keeps a watchful
eye ou sanitary arrangement, but she gener
ally "mothers" the whole concern, finds work
fur the boys aud place for the girls, cheers
up the overdriven wifs and dues her utmost
to keep the husband from the public house.
The whole system depends, of course, for its
success on individual character and power of
sympathy and discrimination, aud it was In
this that Miss IhV. excelled. New York Tel,

Ijirge Shipment of Ulnl.
Mr. E nile Scbeuerman shipivd at one time
nearly S 000 birds of several different varie
ties to New York, from which place they
will be utported to Euroie. The shipment
yesterds y comprised sea pigeon and several
varietio of terns, varying in size, the largest
being alout the size of a common pigeon and
the sma. lest about a large as a martin. The
prevailing color of these birds are white
and pea i in light and dark shades, the poiuts
of the wings and tails being tipped with
black. These birds are killed on Sand aud
Pettiboii islands, where they are partly pre
pared bj seven girls employed by Mr. 8cheuer-
man. 1 bey are then shipped to this city
and the finishing touches are put on accord
ing to tl e most approved methods known to
the tax derniists, by Mr. Scbeiierman and
bis assis ant, Mrs. Nannie Campbell.
The birds are prepared whole, retaining all
the neatly of the plumage. These birds are
for use n the milliner's art, being used to
adorn t .e bats and bonnet of fashionable
ladies. Some are dyed, while othersare used
in their natural plumage.
In rcponse to questions, Mr. Scbeuernian
said he I. ad been eugaged in this business for
nearly t so years, with much success. There
are only two other persons engaged in the
business in the south, one having headquar

man wh) had formerly been connected with
the Smi-hsonmn Institute. The business of
mountir.g birds for sale was not a sucres.
He had mounted a great many, but there is

The American CUsnat.
At the opening of the British association's
geographical section President de Winton
pointed out that "the effect of climate upon
race is somewhat remarkably illustrated by
the physique and nerve power of the present
race of Americana. " Two centuries ago they
were the same race as the English, but now
the contrast is marked. Our climate, ac
cording to the eminent geographer, has given
Americans "an individual stamp," and bas
made a perceptible difference in tha outward
semblance even in this short space of time.
This interesting not of the pronounced ef
fect of climate on race deserved more prac
tical elaboration than OoL de Winton had
time to give iU Great Britain has an insular
climate with a low barometer, which is re
laxing to the human frame. It has been
well said that in a heavy atmosphere the ele
phant would become a comparatively active
animal, while in rarefied air be would become
dull and heavy. In America atmospheric
pressure averages higher than in England.
The climate is continental, with more of ex
hilarating sunlight and more of the element
of cold, which, within certain limits, la ad
judged by all physiologists to be a powerful
tonic and a therapeutic agent of muck value.
In fact, the chief characteristic of our cli
mate is the excess of it nerve stimulating
properties, which in the colder parts of the
country ten. Is to exhaust overworked, ill fed,
ill clad and anemic people. But, on the
whole, the Anglo-Saxon race has not suffered
