times and be at i-lied.
When asked f..r an explanation the
yoiuitf lady would of course, evade the
tibjti-t and lanh niixt sweetly at
what she would inn entiy call a joke.
I'.ut the secret is out and it has
come to the ears of the young men.
Now the fun will be on the other side.
It i a new craze, this turninu of
ritiKS on the fitters of young men by
their ladv friends. Where it came
from no one kn'.ws; why the Bids
have all taken it up they, of course.
an not explain themselves. They
think it U just too lovely, that's all.
There is a firm down town which
employs a large number of yotinit men
md women, and much time is wasted
there during tlie day by the practice
of this craze. Recently one of the
employers discovered what it all
meant, and now there is a sign post
ed conspiciously in the room which
reads : "Any employes caught prac
ticing the ring-turning business will
be immediately discharged."
I asked a member of the firm what
it was all about.
'Why it's the craziest thing you
ever heard of,-' he said. ,-T1ij idea
is this : 1 f a young lady meets k young
man with a ring on his finger she is
to turn the ring two or tfirec times.
Then with another the same thing.
mid soon until she has ttirnei ring
to the extent of twenty-four times.
Then the next thing to do is to
look Tor a nmrriel person, male or fe
male, wearing a marriage ring.- Thi:
ring site is to turn twice, and the
next man she shakes hands with will
be her hu.-band.
"Crazy, isn't it?" said the dignified
employer with a laugh, "nut mat
sign there lias put a stop to it in this
place. The time we have lost through
it would amount to days."
I asked one of the young ladies if all
this was true. After some hesitation
he admitted with blushes that it
"Of course you girls only do this
is a joke ?" said I.
"Oh, no," replied she very seriously,
"we ail believe in it. Why, I know of
a young lady myself who married the
very man she shook hands with after
turning the marriage ring. It comes
true everv time."
"ll!)w about yourself?"
"Well, I'm waiting patiently for the
young man, whom 1 shook hands to

to join her friends.
