PORTY-8IX MARRIAGES A DAY. A VotbI Dr«too Custom with M mmj Plf tüNsqu« mod Mirthful FsBtWBfl* The peasants of Brittany and their quaint dress and customs have long furnished rich material for the artists and writers who flock thither in sum mer. It is in the winter, howev er, when the painters and frivo lous Parisians have flitted homeward, that a unique ceremony takes place in tb-> picturesque commune of Plougastel. Since time immemorial, says the Mew York World, it has been the custom there not to marry during. Advent, and ■o early in January each year there is a day eet apart for the wholesale wed ding of those who have succeeded in arranging their affairs of the heart during the holy season. The pumber of couples united on these occasions is generally above a score, but the record was broken this year when forty-six were married in a single day. There is no better example of the proverbial thriftiness of the Bre tons than this custom. The fami lies of the young people com bine and secure from the inn keepers a considerable abatement in the cost of the eatables and drinkables which are consumed in large quantities after the ceremony. A great number of people from neighboring towns are al ways present at this annual knot-tying, which is made exceedingly attractive by the picturesque costumes of the par ticipants. The maidens wear white opps from which stream long, bright colored ribbons. Their dresses are trimmed with gold fringe or yellow satin, and they wear light green or greenish yellow aprons. Abont the waist is bound a gold-fringed sash of bine silk. The men wear short trousers of brown cloth, round jackets of va rious shades of blue, worsted oelts of the same color, green vests and black hats ornamented with white and blue ribbons. The religious ceremony is proceeded by the civil one at the Mairie, or town hall. At this, in order to conform with the French law, it is necessary to read to each ccuple that lengthy portion of the code which relates to marriage. The strain npon the voice of M. Nicole, the mayor, was so great at the last occasion that he was compelled to devote two entire forenoons to the forty-six couples. After the ceremony at the church the newly wedded pairs, observing an ancient custom, proceed in a body to a shrine of great antiquity outside the village, after which they scatter among the wine shops of the town, where feasts have been prepared for them and their guests. This year the accommoda tions were insufficient, and many ate in tenta The fetes which follow the wed dings last a week and are marked by a vast consumption of food and drink, the singing of Breton songs, and general mirth and jollity. For generations none of the inhabi tants has ever married outside of Plon gastel, for he or she who seeks a mate in the world beyond the narrow bounds of the commune is condemned to per petual and complete ostracism Notice.
