Philadelphia 915-925 Seventh St. Washington E All ARMENIAN COURTSHIP WINNING A BRIDE IN THE SUL TAN'S DOMINIONS. Mother of Would-Be Groom Takes Initiative?Family All Mixed Up in Proceedings. Vaii iTurkey) Correspondence Boston Transcript. The custom of this land is for the mar ried sons to live with their families In llie house of their parents, all the wives being subject to the will of their mothers in-law. Therefore, it is almost always the mother who first suggests to the son that it is time for him to bring a bride home, since it is the mother who desires a lielper in the housework and a daily companion. Unless the young man has plans to go away for education or busi ness he consents with a little urging, flat tered at the prospect of being the head of a kingdom of his own. For the groom and bride are considered a king and queen who found a new kingdom. Then the mother tells the washerwoman or milk woman that they want to find a suitable bride. Perhaps the mother has iu mind a daughter of a good family and sets these women to make discreet inquiries as to this girl's qualities, if they report lavoi ably she collects some well-trusted woman friends to go and examine the girl. The Examination. This ordeal is very thorough. They make her thread a fine needle to see if her eyes are good. They look at her teeth and examine her as they would a horse lor any imperfections. If she is big and strong, is never ill, is a good bread-maker and sewer, and incidentally agreeable to look upon, she is recom mended to the mother. At this point the son is informed that a good girl has been found. Having no acquaintance wuh any girls except his sisters, he readily leaves the 'preliminaries to his elders. Now is the time for the equivalents of candies and American Beauty roses. These being scarce, Cupid's stock-in-trade is a square ?>t sugar wrapped in shiny paper, procur able at all the provision stalls tor five vents. No one thinks of eating them, the sugar being in/erior and unclean; In fact, I believe the same gay squares are hand rd bark and forth, as need requires, year In and out.

It produces any harmful af fects whatsoever. SOCIETY FOR PREVENTION OF SICKNESS. E. BERLINER, Secretary, mil M ?-oSu.tf,46 making a request without a present and the poverty of the people are responsi ble for this custom. This suqare of un eatable sugar, wrapped in shfny green or red paper decorated with flowers, is sent by a poor woman to the young lady's family with polite regards, and a request that Mr. So-and-So be allowed to call. This somewhat vague message carries a very definite meaning and the girl's par ents know that one of their several daugh ters will soon become engaged. The Meeting. On the appointed day the young man and some of his family come to the house, are ushered into the best room, where the man of the house receives them with "Vyelcomes, a thousand welcomes." After a season of small talk and long silences the tinkle of glasses outside sets the wooer's nerves on edge, for the door opens and he gets the first sight of her, who conjes in sedately, bringing tea, chaperoned by her mother. There is no formal introduction, but the young man knows intuitively that It is she, his in tuition being aided perhaps by the bangles, necklaces and general dressed up appearance, also by the fact that no other young girl presents herself. Three cups of tea are served,, during which in terval the young man makes his decision, and as she offers the last cup he slips a ring on her finder. If he is not pleased he gives an old worthless ring, being ashamed to give nothlnn. makes a hasty departure, and a day later sends word that he doesn't want her! But if she is fat enough and slow enough he will be pleased, as he requires no exhibition of vivacity or cleverness. In fact, a girl who is quick to laugh or prone to speak in company is dubbed bold, and looks far and long for a husband. Nothing could be more dummy-like than the Armenian girl in the presence of her wooer. She barely raises her eyes to mumble an an swer to a question, and sedulously keeps all expression of any kind from her face. If she must rise or walk it is with great deliberation, and if a smile flickers a minute on her face It is followed by a stern melancholy which leaves you won dering if you dreamed of the smile. The Engagement. Giving the ring Is the preliminary en gagement. Later, at the groom's initia tive, a day is set when all relatives and near friends are invited for the formal engagement. This consists in giving fur ther gifts to the girl, a gold watch and chain or necklace, or something of the sort. The friends do all the rejoicing and eating, while the bride sits in honor, neither conversing nor smiling. Some times guests stay late into the night, the men to dance and sing and the women to gossip. The engagement is made legal by chosen friends of the bride and groom taking a silver box containing a ring, the whole wrapped in a silk handkerchief, to the head priest to be blessed. Here the names are registered and the .properly blessed rlnK is carried by the priest to the bride-elect. So they plight their troth, with no real acquaintance and al most never any love between them. The Soul as an Atom. From Current Literature. In bringing forward his idea that the soul is an atom. Dr. John Butler Burke, the physicist, warns us against Identi fying this conception with "the crude materialism of flaeckel." It is a theory which Dr. Burke says is not so "far fetched" as the spiritualism of Lodge. It Is only the monad of Leibnitz, he avers, in a modern dress. "It empha sizes the Insignificance of magnitude in space." It is possible, suspects Dr. Burke, that human souls, "like vortex brings in the ether fluid," may move through space, approach and react on one another, as when Incarnate thoy can become conscious of each other by ethereal disturbances, such as those of light and heat and so forth. When dis sembled, might they not likewise ard perhaps more freely becomes conscious of a still greater variety of sensations from the vast complex of ether disturb ances. in their perfect freedom, a con sciousness produced by the harmonic vibrations of the most 'perfect and da rightful kinds?the music of the sphere.; a* of old? Trial of Calvin Johnson for Schultz Murder Tuesday. FIFTY TALESMEN CALLED Attorney Machen Hopes to Acquit His Negro Client. WBIT OF ERROR IS GRANTED New Trial Probable in Damage Suit of 7. H. Trimyer Against W., A. ft Mt. V. R. B. Special Correspondence of The Star. ALEXANDRIA. Va.. May 22, 1909 Everything Is In readiness for the trial of Calvin Johnson, one of the four negroes held for the murder of Walter F. Schultz, the Chicago artist, which will begin Tues day morning in the corporation court, Judge L>. C. Barley presiding. A venire of fifty talesmen has been summoned. Many are well known busi ness men. Impression prevails that the panel will be soon exhausted, as it is reported that many summoned have al ready expressed opinions which would be hard to change. Attorneys representing other negroes charged with the crime believe the entire day will be consumed in getting a jury. Should the present panel prove in adequate another panel will be summoned by Judge Barley from the bench. The effects of Schultz, consisting of one trunk and a dress suit case containing his clothes and other effects, recovered by the Washington authorities, are now in the possession of the police here. They will, it is expected, be used as evidence by the commonwealth attorney. Clothes worn by Johnson the night the murder was committed will also be ex hibited. It is believed by the police that stains upon them are blood stains. If a conviction is secured in the John son case it will signify that the state has a strong case against the three other prisoners and that all will probably be convicted. Attorney Lewis H. Machen has been at work for some time past securing evi dence. He expects to secure an acquittal for his client. So far as known there is no new evi dence to be submitted lurther than that adduced at the preliminary hearing in the police court. The most important witness for the prosecution will, therefore, be Henry Smith, who turned state's evidence and who testified that he was compeued to take part in the murder of Schultz at the point of a pistol in the hands of Pines. Immediately following the trial of John son, which will probably last five days, | the trial of Richard Pines will be com 1 menced. Pines will be represented by Attorney Aylett Nicol. Next will come the trial of James Dorsey. He will be represented by At torneys H. Noel Garner and J. Ranaall Caton. The trial of Smith will be the last to be taken up. Up to the present time no counsel has been assigned for him. Writ of Error Granted. A -writ of error has been granted by the state court of appeals In the case of J*ohn H. Trimyer against the Wash ington, Alexandria and Mount Vernon Electric Railway Company. This means that the higher tribunal will probably grant a new trial. Trimyer was granted damages in the sum of $2,500 in the circuit court for this city, Judge J. B. T. Thornton presiding, for injuries alleged to have been sus tained in an accident at Henry and Cam eron streets February 27, 1908. The rail road company, through its attorneys, James R. Caton & Son, at once appealed the case. It was today notified that the higher court had granted the writ of error. United States Commissioner R. P. W. Garnett this afternoon occupied two hours in taking testimony in the case of Martin L. Bray, who, it is alleged, recent ly made application for a pension and then refused to appear before the chief ex aminer in Washington in connection with his application. The testimony was taken before Chief Examiner Hall. It will be submitted to the department in Wash ington. The funeral of Mrs. Thomas O'Shaugh neBsy, who died at her home at Bailey's Cross-roads Friday, will take place at 2 o'clock tomorrow afternoon from St. James' Catholic Church at Falls Church. Burial will be made in the cemetery at that place. A business meeting of Fitzgerald Council, No. 450. Knights of Columbus, will be held at St. Mary's Hall Wednes day night next. Following the meeting I a social session will be held. Several members of the order will tomorrow go to Washington to witness the exemplifi cation of the third degree. Odd Fellows' Initiation. At a meeting of Potomac Lodge, No. 38, Independent Order of Odd Fellows, held last night at Odd Fellows' Hall, the second degree was conferred upon four candidates. Harmony Lodge of Wash ington will pay the local lodge a visit Friday night and confer a degree. Arrangements have been made for a meeting of the executive committee of M. D. Corse Camp, Sons of Confederate Vet erans, which will be held Tuesday night next at Lee Camp Hall. The object of the meeting is to perfect plans for the next regular business meeting. Rev. W. F. Watson, pastor of the First Baptist Church, will take for his subject at the morning services tomorrow "The Secret of Power." At the evening services his theme will be "Self-destruction." Owing to the rain the game of base ball to have been played this afternoon between the Episcopal High School team and Woodberry Forest was postponed. Mrs. Irma V.

Passport for the Interior?Lump of Silver and Small Change. From the Shanghai Mercury. Passports are esEential to any traveler proceeding into the Interior and are sup plied at the various consulate:-., Ours were issued at the British consulate and in size they looked like small ensigns cov ered with Chinese characters, and in these a good deal was set forth both for our protection and for the Chinese. Stu dents being regarded in China as essen tially a class to be respected, the Chinese being nothing if not literary, we were classed as "men of learning," and those with whom we came in contact were in formed that ?b long as we were within their gates courtesy and attention were to toe shown us. On the other hand, if we made ourselves objectionable In any way we were not to be cast into prison, placed In a box with torture awaiting us or other Incidental Chinese attentions, but we were to bo taken with all possible speed to the near est British consul and have our punish ment meted out according to British law. But money difficulties in China are not trifling. Dollars?that Is, the sliver dollar or tael?ceases to be current after Ichang, so that it is necessary when traveling long distances into the interior to take a draft on one of the Chinese banks. The compradore at the Chartered Bank at Hankow saw to this for us and presented us with the amount required by a draft on the Shansi Bank and Its branches in provinces through which we are travel ing. Hupeh silver dollars were also taken, which at Ichang and beyond could bo converted into "shoes." A "shoe" is a lump of silver from which pieces must bo chipped as we proceed on our journey. Lastly a quantity of cash, a cash being a brass coin with a hole in it. a thousand being equal to about half a crown, would be forthcoming for Hupeh dollars, moot cumbersome but necessary coins for Hay ing ouolles, boatmen and innkeepers. Mothers' Day. From tbe Houston Tost. "Are you going to celebrate Mothenf day?" "Of course." "Going to wear a white rose and go to a picnic?" "Yes." "Is your mother going?"
