Threw Wooden Shoes at Bride.
In the shower of missiles hurled
after the wedded pair something
struck tho settlement worker with
stinging force. "What on earth!" she
exclaimed; then quickly added: "A
wooden shoe! Who ever heard of
throwing a wooden shoo at a bride?"
"Most overybody who has attended
weddings In this part of town has
heard of it," said the officiating curato.
"It is the custom here to throw wood
en shoes because at some time In her
life nearly every bride has worn a
pair. For the present generation they
wore not her Sunday shoes, nor her
evening dress shoes, nor even her ev
eryday street shoes, but around tho
house and maybe to the nearby shops
In rainy weather she has clattered
around often enough In wooden shoes
to Justify having a pair thrown at hor
for old time's sake."- Boston Herald,
