I Curious Custom Cvists in Some Port?

Itttf to Snysimn It,
They have a curious way of utilizing
wives anil daughters in some parts ol
Madras, says Golden Penny. If a man
wants money he puts these members ol
his establishment in pawn, and his cred
itor detains them until the debt is dis
charged. The custom varies in different
localities. In Nellore the Yerealls pledge
their daughters to creditors, who may
either marry them or give them away,
j and a man who has to go to jail deposits
his wife with another man of her tribe
j until his return. In North Arcot un
' married daughters are frequently mort
gaged, and become the absolute prop
erty of the mortgagee until liquidation.
In some parts men sell their wives
for sums of C5 or so, and have no fur
ther claim upon them.

Thus a man would he heard saying to
his wife when a heavy hilt had to be
met: "I am afraid we cannot manage
without it, myedear: we must pawr
Juliana;” or, supposing him to have de
posited his wife, he might say to his lit
tle child: "If you are a good girl, my
dear. I will give you n treat, and take
out your mamma.” Under such con
ditions children would become "pledges
of affection" In more senses than one.

“Mr. Brown is outside.” said the new

“Not on your life.” exclaimed the
