Killing an Unfaithful Lever.
When a Japanese girl has been
slighted by her lover she revenges her
self according to the following quaint
custom: In the dawn of the early
morning she rises and puts on a white
robe and white clogs. Round her neck
she hangs a small mirror, which falls
to her breast, and on her bead she
puts a metal crown with three points,
each point bearing a lighted candle.
In her left hand she carries a small
fgure of straw or rags-supposed to
represent her unfaithful lover-and
this she nails to one of the sacred trees
surrounding the family shrine. She
then prays for the death of the man.

she will pull out the nails which are
