I think I know who put my utice to i hat
Fob Wine Drinkers.?Joaquin Miller
tells thus how he he.sseci; them mating
wine in she oid country :
"When I wa~ living in I ah , on tbe shores
of the tVdtialic, I went np into the moun
tains among the peasant-* to live and learn
their habits of life. Tho poor or laboring
people are the ier.i people of any laud. The
rich are all alike. The poor people are the
character of tbe country, and then it is a
theory of mine that the Bweetest fl >wers
grow cloeo 10 the giotn.d. These peasants
were winemakerH. Their splendid dark
women climbed the steep mountains and
carried the grapes down in greut ba-kete on
iboir hacks ; tlicn tbey emptied il-.ese bas?
kets into a great, round, flit tub or vat,
then they go mto this ?;!!?>?? shallow tub, in
their short, red petticoat, with naked brown
feet ; then they join bands and begin to go
round and round sieging und laughing as
tbey go. They wero : rending out the
wine. They were black-eyed and beautiful;
they were tight hearted and happy ; they
had clusters of b ack utid abundant hair
ever their ?houldorg; they showed the pret
tksf white teeth in the world &?> they lified
their happy faces and circled round and
round, and trampled the grapes until tbey
stood knee-deep in the wins At fhet I did
not like to drink this wine, because I did
not think it was clean. But I afterwaida
watched them at their work more closely,
and saw with pleasure that they invariably
and always washed their feet?that is, after
they got done treading out the wine."
Thk Wedding Ring Fingkr.?Tbe ori?
gin of wearing the wedding ring upon the
fourth finger of the left hand has been much
disputed, even from very ancieot times. A
reasonable inference from tbe custom of
wearing ringo generally on Ibe fourth fioger
as a matter of convenience is giveu by Ma
crobius, a Latin author of the fifth century,
who soys: "At first it was both free and us
ual to wear rings on either band ; but after
that luxury increased, when precious gems
inn rich insculptures were added, the cus?
tom of wearing them ou the right hand was
translated unto the left ; for, that hand be?
ing less employed, thereby they were best
preserved And for tbe same reason they
placed them on this finger (the fourth) for
the thumb is too active a fioger and i-; too
commonly employed with either of tbe reet;
the index or forefinger was too naked, and
the middle and little finger they re?
jected as extremes ard as too big or too lit?
tle for their ringt; and of all cho-e out tbe
fourth, as being least used of any, as being
guarded on either side, and having iu most
this peculiar condition?that it cannot be
extended alone and by iitelf, but will he ac
companied by some fing r oo either side."
