life's joys and sorrows. "The bridegroom

joined Iiim. A low.table was placed be
fere llieni, 011 which were cups, bellies
and a double spouted vessel, full of
sake, a kind of rice beer.' On a stand"
near by were figures of a tortoise, emblem
of lung life: a - sir tree, emblem of
strength. un<l a blooming plum tree, for 1
beauty and prolifiencss. As soon n?
the guests were seated a .stand was
placed before each, and a typical Jnjut'- ,

bride waited upon her future mother
and father-in-law, ami at the close she
and the bridegroom drank alternately
from the double spouted vessel uatji it
was candled.
"One of tiie side dishes was boiled
chrysanthemum petals, garnished with
vinegar sauce: another was uuisitrooius

Cucumbers are a favorite food i:i
Japan, and. fresh or pickled, they lire
found on (lie table the year round, in
many ways the Japanese go about,
things in exactly the opposite way to
what we do. For Instance, in the
building of a house the upper stories
and roof are completed on stout seal'- s
folding, and then the first story and v
foundation arc filled in from below. t

Daring crimes are often committed
by children in Loudon, and only Sttotland
Ynr<i Is aware of the fact.
Youthful offenders are rarely caught
in tfio net of committing even slight
offenses. or. If they are. a tolerant,

Girls are mostly taught pocket pickng
and bow to steal trifles from shop
howcases. Members of both, sexes are *

Boy burglars are trained in a very
mple manner. It is argued that most ,

Accordingly the juvenile Bill SIkes

iok. The hoy is required to practice *
Ith this rope, throwing it in much the ?
me way as a lasso would be up to n ^

When the lassoing Is acquired to the n
liner's satisfaction the lad is next re- ^
ired to shin up the rope -without disiging
the hook from the sill. This re- *
Ires a great deal of practice, and ?
