In country towns any rurooroftae ealatence of such a rela tion between a young man and a young woman meets with the most In dignant denials, even If the wedding day is set. Secrecy seems to be con sidered necessary element of happl ne In the betrothal of the country couple.

This conduct would erera suitable when the betrothal has Wen brought about by parent, bat it is scarcely consistent with the American atyle of love making. The lover who did not take and tie tnaijen who did not give love'a seal to the engagement would be lacking' in real sentiment ami artior, it aecnia to me. But prudence and ro mance would both demand that the Illusion of the relation be retained throughout, and that the mystery which hangs about the maiden should envelope her to the altar.
