MARRIAGE IN MEXICO.
Ilo tin ICiiKitK'euuMit uiid Wedding
CereiumilcM Are Celebrated.
Tito .Mexican people are hoapltnbl to
h lault, always welootuluir their frleuda
even though they have not enough to
eat themselves. And they religiously
visit the sick, Including those who
have contagious diseases. They are ul
so addicted to public social functions,
the invariable mode of eutortalumeut
being the dance. They are fond of uiu
sic. though uot proficient in the art of
making it, probubly more from lack of
opportunity thau from lack of caDac
ity. The violin nud guitar are the usual
Instruments of music, the repertory of
the local musicians beltiir usually Urn
Ited to a few tunes which are in equal
demand for the dance and for the fu
Cue of the most interesting and beau
tiful of tho social functions is the ureu
dorlo. When a young man wishes to
marry he asks for the girl of his choice
or tho parents, not of the girl herself,
and if she is given the preudorio at
once follows, ushered in bv shootinc
and demonstrations of Joy. The bride
and bridegroom are publicly presented
to their future parents-in-law, after
which the company pass iu procession
in frout of tho couple, each ouo droo
plug a piece of money into the hands
of the bride. Then follows the inevita
ble dance. This public betrothal is con
sidered almost as biudintr as marriacre.
and I have heard of but one instance
in which the compact was not kept, the
recreant bridegroom iu that case being
visited with ostracism. The betrothal
Is usually followed by marriage just as
soon as the services of the priest can
be secured. The uiarriatre ceremony la
followed by a feast more notable for
the abundance of things to drink than
for things to eat and by the usual
dance. Indeed the festivities are often
prolonged for several nights after the
wedding. Southern Workman.
THE AGE OF STARS.
Color Aid the Astronomer In Mak
ing Hli Calculations.
As a star contracts from the sur
rounding nebulous matter from which
It was thrown off Its temperature rises,
and with this augmented heat occurs a
change both in the star's spectrum and
color. Redhot Iron is not nearly so hot
as white hot iron. By observing the va
rious changes in tint which tho metal
undergoes the fouudryman is able to
tell with considerable accuracy its de
gree of heat. A somewhat similar
method of gauging a star's temperature.
