We venture to pr(diit that tile an

reeted with the livellest satisfaction
by a largo majority of the people, in

The Tin, Wood, Leather, Cloth, lIlver
and Gold Weddings.
[ the Bazar.)
Fashion has established the custom
of late years of celebrating certain an
niversaries of the marriage, these being
named as follows: The celebration at
the expiration of the first year is called
the cotton wedding; at two vears comes
the paper; at three, the leather; at the
close of five years comes the wooden;
at the seventh anniversary the friends
assemble at the woolen, and at ten
comes the tin; at twelve years the silk
and fino linen; at fifteen the crystal
wedding: at twenty the (friends gather
with their china, and at twenty-five the
married couple that have been true to
their vows for a quarter of a century are
rewarded with silver gifts. From this 1
time forward the tokens of esteem be- I
come rapidly more valuable. When the
thirtieth anniversary is reached they I
are presented with pearls; at the for- I
tioth come the rubies, and at the fiftieth t
occurs the glorious golden wedding. i
Beyond that time the aged coupls are i
allowed to enjoy their many gifts in t
peace. If however, by any possibility t
:hey reach the seventy-fifth anniver- I
nary, they are presented with the rarest e
sifts to be obtained at the celebration e
)f their diamond wedding. In issuing k
he invitations for celebrating these an- t
liversaries, it is custolhary to print v
hem on a material emblematical of the u
iccasion. Thus, tin, wood, leather, d
loth, tinfoil, silver and gold paper are v
irought into use. Those who accept
uch invitations and partake of the tJ
lospitalitles of host and hostess are ex- ti
ected to contribute to the collections a

The sovereign remedy for all ailments
is shampooing, and he who inherits the
trade is blinded in his childhood for the
sake of modesty. Shampooers are in
constant demand ; at almost every cor

teeth as a tribute to the husband's
honor. Notwithstanding, in all towns,
except at seaports frequented by for
eigners, the public baths are used by
both sexes in common; and when dis
tress comes upon a family, the daughter
who aids toward their support by making
use of her allurements is commended as
dutiful, and without reproach may after
