Of all the men, both young and old,'

one-tenth of them knows why iie' places
the- ring on tho ring linger of Jtho, left
hand. Of coure. the 'answer' could
bo: "I'jverybody'e doln' It." Tlio cus
tom of placing the ring upon the fourth
finger seems undoubtedly to owe Its
origin to the fancy that a special
nerve, or vein, ran directly from this
finger to the heart. Mitcrohlus, In his
Saturnalia, alludes to the belief In the
following words: "Because of this
nerve, tho newly betrothed places the
ring on this linger of his spouse, as
though It were it representation of the
heart." This Information, he asserts,
wns derived from an Hgyptlan priest.
People of Japan Loath to Embrace
Faith Introduced Into the
Country by Korea.
Buddhism was Introduced Into Japan
by Korea In the year 5152. It was first
embraced by the higher classes, partic
ularly In scholarly circles, but the
lower classes still clung to their old
faith of Shlntolsm. The doctrines of
Buddhism were written In tho Chinese
language and tho believers offered
their prayers In that tongue. '
At one time Buddhism made such
Btrldes as to become the state religion
In Japan, but the people still opposed
It with a determination of upholding
their own Shlntolsm, until the states
men and priests Invented ait Ingenious
way of explaining and Interpreting the
religious principles of Buddhism.
They adopted the theory of monothe
ism lis well as polytheism by saying
that there Is only one supreme power
which Is personified In the form of
various gods and goddesses, according
to tho different countrlus and different
The principles of Buddhism and
Shlntolsm were thus reconciled and,
In order to convince the popular mind
of this theory, Kmperor Shomu pa
tronized a movement to erect a large
bronze statuo of.Dalhutsu or Buddha
at Nara, tho statue being conmlotod
In tho year Tftt after I t years of cast

lit; fell lonesome and homesick amid
now scenes until ho became Interested
In ro8umedschool duties. It was two
years latu when ho graduated Into
a higher eilucatlomil phase. Tho Im
pulse came upon htm to write to his
little friend of old, proudly telling of
being awarded recognition as tho
youngest nnd most proficient qf his
class. The smoldering fire of his
early love was fanned Into vivid Hume,
when he received a pretty girlish note
In reply, full of little nothings, but
showing that Hlllo had not forgotten
It became u great pleasure to Ber
tram to thus begin a correspondence
that alleviated the tedium of the four
succeeding years. The mutual mis
sives never went beyond the bounds
of friendship, but It was a fond mem
ory for Bertram to picture the Idol,
of his boyhood dreams grown Into a
young lady, nnd when she sent him
her photograph he treasured a second
prized memento of bis only love ex
perience, the first being the lozenge,
so surreptitiously, but consolingly
passed to hint that memorable evening
In the long ago.
The day that Bertram Morris oh
tallied his diploma as a member of
the legal bar, thus equipped to meet
the uiaturo responsibilities of life, he
received u letter from Elbe glowing
with pride and pleasure over her own
graduation Mit the seminary at Uock
ton. She told of a pnrty that was to
be given In her honor. "And what do
you think?" she wrote vivaciously, "It
Is to be at the hoine of Kleanor Dwy
er, don't you remember, Bertram,
when wo last met and where we were
the same good friends that we are
now? Of course you can't come all
that way Just to sou me. but Klennor
Insists she shall send yon an Invita
tion, anyway."
Tho same arrived. A legacy from
an aunt hud given Bertram a favorable
Income, and there was no question of
sparing the money for the trip he at
once meditated. lie voted It ir favor
of fate that was reassuring, as at the
patty during tho evening lit' and Kllle
found themselves In the same retired
niche wjiere their early mutual liking
had found Its birth. Their eyes met
ln mutual comprehension of the situa
"Is It not strange?'' spoke Kflle. "It
was six years ago that you and I f
"Were boy and girl, In this sunm
spotT' added Bertram, leaning closer
towards her. "I wish to show you
something, Kllle," and from an lni"M
pocket, wrapped In a fragment of silk,
he drew forth nnd revealed tho "1
love you" lozenge he had preserved
through the years.
Kllle blushed untl fiuttered as he
caught he baud In his own. "I asked
you a question then," whispered Ber
tram. "Do you remember, dearest?'
he pressed. "I ask It again now."
"Tlu answer men is tne answer
now," whispered Kllle, her fair face
half averted because o) confession
and emotion.
Ami tne long ueterreii kiss was
given and taken, a sure pressgo of the
union of two loving hearts In thc'iieur
