LIFE IN HOLLAND.
THE CURIOUS MATRIMONIAL CUS

An Iron Social Itule.
A marriage by proxy, or, as it Is called,
"marringo by the glove," is prevalent in
Holland, and is brought about by the fact
that mauy of tho eligible young nieD after
having finished their education depart for
Dutch India to engage iu some lucrative
commercial enterprise or to accept a position
iu this eolouial service. The scarcity of
marriageable white ladios in that clime in
duces the would lie husband to write to a
friend in Holland, disclosiug his wish for a
The friend selects a willing young lady,
gonorall,) one with a substantial dot and
otherwise conforming closely to specifica
tions of tho letter. A photograph of the
favored one is inclosed in tho return epistle,
After the lapsio of a few months, a soiled left
baud glove, . ith a power of attorney, la re
ceived from tho far away bachelor. The
friend in Holland marries the selected bride
in precisely the same manner as if he were
the actual groom, and the young wife do
parts in the next Indian mail steamer to
bring happiness to the lonely one in tho far
east. A marriage of this description is as
biuding as if the bridegroom were present,
and is never repudiated. Jf either party to
the glove marriage should die before meet
ing in India the survivor would share the
property of deceased in accordance with the
Tint wife's legal position.
The laws in Holland in regard to the legal
position of the wife are very much behind
the age, aud the husband can do about as he
like3 with the person and the property of hid
helpmate. The laws arc silent as to the wife's
claim on the husband, but lawyers have told
me that this apparent void in tho law book is
caused by the invariable devotion of the IIol
iai.djr to his home and its inmates. Love for
home, wife and children is nowhere more
thoroughly illustrated than in the ' KeUiej-Intul.-,
and eases of neglect to provide In
every possible way are very rare in the land
The wives and daughters of the lower
classes try in everv wav imaginable to aid
the husband and father in procuring a liv
ing. Iu summer vou will observe hundreds
of them on their knees in the public squares
armed with a thi-oe inch spike weeding the
grass blades from between the stones, for
which they receive twelve cents a day.
Others are engaged in w heeling sord into
outward bound merchant ships, to be used
as ballast. You will see a woman Dushin? a
wheelbarrow, containing about 200 pounds
of sand, up a broad gangway inclined at
least iu) degs., at a gait simply wonderful
considering that the wheeler is of the weaker
sex. You will often meet a small procession
on tho tow path of the river Amstel, oonsist-
ng or motner and two or three children.
harnessed to tho tow lino of the canal boat,
very much in the manner cf American
males. They hang, as it were, In the harness,
and their swinging regnlar walk proves that
a great part of their lives has been passed in
tms way. n hen the boat comes abreast you
feel like using a rope's end on the father of
? tmi.y, who, placidly smoking Li3 pipe.
sits in tho stern steering- the vessel, but your
anger will cool when investigation shows
that if he took to the tow path and allowed
his wife tho helm, ell damages fo- collision,
etc., would have to be paid by him.
TLIE RAILROAD WATCHAVOMAS.
You cross a railroad track and casting a
glance along the iron path, a woman, dressed
id red tunic and glistening helmet, waviug a
white signal nag, catches your eye. She is
the watch woman at the crossing. At every
railroad in Holland this position is filled by
a woman, and railroad oiiicials have assured
me that no accident has ever been caused by
a watch woman's carelessness. They receive
twenty guldens ($S) per month. A. man
would require double that salary and might
get intoxicated once in awhile. Distinctions
in privileges between married and single
women are so thoroughly established here by
social custom as to be observed in the every
day associations of the seses. A native will
readily discover whether the couple walking
on the street iu front of him are married or
not, tins discovery being rp.ado easy by the
strict adherence of tho populace to the ancient
custom compulsorily introduced into the
country when under the iron rule of "AJva
the Bloody." An unmarried woman always
takes the right arm of her escort, while the
married one selects the left side of her hus
band. So deeply has this custom entered
into the life of Hollanders that at a church
wedding the bride enters the edifice on the
right side of the groom, the wife returning
on the left side of her husband when the cere
mony has been performed. No unmarried
iady can dream of going to church, concert
or any place of public assembly without the i
escort ot parents or male members of her
family. She cannot take a walk, pay a visit
or go shopping unaccompanied by her
mother or other chaperon. Until the be
trothal of the young lady has been announced,
she remains the sola charge of father and
litolhcr, and she makes acquaintances only in
the presence of a third party.
Unmarried daughters in that country are
chaperoned to all plao;?3 of amusement.
Evon dancing parties are Interspersed with
singing, recitations, etc, for the amusement
of tho eiders of the faaiily, who sit around
the tables, sipping their coffee, wine or other
favorite beverage, while the young people
dance. Here th young must make tho best
of their opportunities, for when it pleases the
parents to eo home the daughters alo quit
the gayeties of the ballroom. Amsterdam

A Court Dress in England.
The one article of court dress alone calls
for the exercise of all one's intellectual posv
ers. Like lira. Todgers' gravy, it calls for
anxiety and a sense of responsibility that
threatens one with prostration. No man,
save a play actor or a circus rider, or an
ocean swell known as a naval officer, or an
army revolver, known as such at Washing

A Cradle of Palm Leaves.
There is a tribe in the palrn region of tha
Ama?qn that ci adk-3 the 3'Oung in palm
leaves. A single leaf turned up around the
edges by some native process makes an excel
lent cradle, and now and then it is made to
do service as a bath tub. Strong cords are
formed from the sinews of another species of
palm, and by these this natural Udtiio is

The Armies of tho Future,
At a meeting c-f tha members of the Rova.1
TJuited Service institution held recently a
paper was read by Col. IL M. Ilozier on the
equipment and transport of modern armies.
Col. Ilozier called attention to tho present
attitude of foreign nations, with largo bodies
of cavalry watching each other on epcls side
of frontier lines. In any future war be be
lieved that theid would be an increased num
ber of engagements between cavalry, and
that by their means much damage would bo
done at an early period of any war to roads
and railroad? : hx$ these cavalry engagements
would never bo decisive of tho war, and
victory would depend upon which side would
be able to bring up infantry rrith the
greatest rapiditA. Th;:; iuvolved railway
transportation. There were now everywhere
in foreign lauds fortresses commanding tho
lines of railways, and at tlw first opening of
war uon tho continent no doubt a dash
would be made at these fortresses to prevent
them being victualed for any lengthened
period. They must be prepared to strike
quick blows, and within & shore time of the
outbreak cf hostilities. They must reduce
the weight to be carried by every soldier aud
by every horse; they ought not to handicap
the soldiers by making then; carry enormous
weights. Nest, they must have a very effi
cient railway corps, able to repair railways
in advancing, and to break them down when
they were not wanted Thirdly, they must
do without camp equipment and tents, be
cause tney would not be able to carry them
in the future.
The face of the country everywhere in
Europe had changed in the seventy-five years
which had elapsed since tho last great war;
and there wa3 no longer the necessity for
such measures to encamp the fighting men as
formerly were absolutely necessary. He ad
vocated the soldiers wearing a gray dress in
time of war. The kit must bo reduced in
weight to about thirty-eight pounds, instead
of fifty-two pounds, which it was at present.
Men should carry not more than thirty
rounds of ammunition at a time. Favor
had been shown to taking infantrv into
on horseback, but then one man
out of every four would be required to
hold the horses and he recommended the sub
stitution of Irish cars each car drawn by
Tour horses, and carrying fifteen armed men.
With regard to tho arpis carried by a cav
alry soldier, he recommended that a triangu
lar sword bo substituted for the present
form, because ia fighting a man always did
moro damage by thrusting than by cutting,
and that a pistol should be substituted for a
ca: bine. The revolver, he thought, was not
a useful weapon for a soldier to carry. The
weight which the horse ought to carry should
bo lightened as far as i-ossible. " I,ondon

It must be borne In mind that tho young
American and Canadian of tho moro edu
cated class thoroughly despise farming, him
tho sentiment is echoed among those Hons of
tlio soil who are, or think they are, too
"smart" to plow and sow. Land there has
no prestige, no attraction of tho kind it has
in this country. This feeling against farm
ing is partly genuino ambition and partly
mero vulgar snobbishness, and tho provincial
press is continually noting ami deploring its
existence. The rural "buck" beyond the At

can friends havo for farming, and
fuils, though ho may bo foolish, to agree
with the latter that a position behind the
counter of an ironmonger's or bootmaker's
shop is a haven of bliss. It would bo quite
superfluous to discuss tho comparative merits
of these opposing points of view. And this
tor tho excellent reason that, even suonosin?
the young English emigrant were less stiff
necked in tho matter, the great rush of com
petent natives for inferior urban situations
already exceeds tha demand.
TO LA.BOH ON" THE t,A.'D.

them expensively, and then send them : ;i jss

eopie who, ia tho first place, do not look at
lire witn quite the same eyes that wo u.,e,
and in tho second, havo little notion of the
interior social economy of this country, and
the hopeless competition that exists. If
America had vacant desks to offer to the
sons of our upper and upper middle class, no
doubt these would bo sought with eagerness.
Dut even the tolerably influential American
or Canadian knows well thnt, if ho had the
deepest interest in securing tho most humble
posts of this kind for half a dozen English
lads from Rugby or Ilaileybury, ho would be
at his wits' ends to accomplish the task.
Nor again could the American by any pos
sibility i-ealizo tho singular aversion to in
door work and the actual pleasuro in phy
sical toil that by a sf range law animates such
f. Lu-go proportion of our educational j-outu.
The cry of "What shall wo do with our
boys?" is, as we Lavs said, as rife as ever
among tho parents of tho upper aud middle
clasiee, who for years havo been bringing
into the world far moro children than they
could reasounblj' expect to float in their own
class in life. Ncr is it any good pushing
downwaiild in this countiy, for there the
well bred seeker for work meets not only an
army of small clerks hustling and jostling
ono another to a living, but in addition tc
them the inevitable, ubiquitous Teuton.
Poor as are tho prospects of tho gentleman's
son without brains, mone3'' or interest, a hiih
stool in such a sphere, even if it could be
won, what is it? Fifty pounds a year, the
disadvantages without the advantages of a
great city, a constant struggle to keep the
nap on the coat and tho loaf in the cupboard,
inferior companions, bad air, bad tobacco
and music halls.
THE FINAL OUTCOHE.
English people who look upon the cleaning
out of pig styes as a horrible degradation,
but riding on a mowing machino a perform
ance not unworthy of a gentleman, would te
regarded by an American farmer as showing
signs of softening cf tho brain. Tho perfect
republicanism of tho farming community
beyond tho Atlantic, which so often irritates
the English gentleman emigrant of capital
who becomes proprietor, stands in good stead
those who have to work for others. Tho lat
ter, at any rate, havo no material anxieties.
They may go, within certain limits, almost
where they choose, and making certain of
food au4 lodging and sufficient wage. If
their lot is cast among a class socially lower
than that in which they were born, it is pro
portionately kinder hearted and less likely to
leave them in the lurch in case of unforeseen
misfortune. If the physical work is hard,
there is a large proportion of English youth
to whom physical toil is infinitely preftrablo
to mental labor and deprivation from fresh
air. Sometimes this is only fancy and a
youthful excuse to bo rid of books, but often
it is. perfectly genumo and will stand tne test
Social sentiment is deeply adverse to such
a lino of life, but, after all, what a trifling
thing i3 this when placed upon the scales with
bread and butter and an average degree of
happiness. If there are more gentlemen, to
use an ambiguous phrase, brought into the
world than can be maintained in a soft
handed and black coated state, demand nd
supply must assert themselves. For the youth
who has no intellectual hankerings and
whose chief delight is in his physical powers,
ono can imagine many a worso fate than thai
be should be absorbed into that immense and
industrious clu-ss who till tha soil of the
American continent. He will be none the
worse for Lis gentle rearing if he have tact
and sense. Even if he lose his superficial
graces and become almost unrecognizable in
the course of years from the ordinary work

what harm is it? Is there any special happi
