MATRIMONY IN JAPAN.
Tha Way MstcHoi Arc Arranged by
Olio Taiiiuia. us we will mil our
young gentleman, is about twenu
years old. lie is an up to da to Jap
anese and ha put oil all thoughts
of iniitrinion v until this compara
tively late date for .la pari in or
der to linihh his university Undies.
Now, however, he hag linishetl his
training and has intimated to hid
father, us a dutiful son should, that
he would like to marry. That is all
ho is required to do at present. It
is the business of his parents to
take the next steps.
Orio's father presumably has
some quiet talks with his wife on
tho subject and then betakes him
self to a professional matchmaker
or go-between, a discreet man of the
world, with a good deal of insight
into human nature. For the sake
of his own reputation and future
the go-between usually docs his
best to please all parties.
Sometimes, in the east as in the
west, love laughs at restraints, and
somebody or other conveys a hint
to the marriage broker that a meet
ing between Mr. A. and Miss B.
might not be unacceptable to both,
in which case his task is easy. Usu
ally, however, he takes time to look
around him. and he in turn how
indispensable the ladica are in these
matters consults his wife. At last,
after carefully "considering the olli
cial and social position of the per
sons and families interested, he sug
gests that n certain Miss Chrysan
themum would make u most desira
ble bride for the "learned son of
the honorable house of Tamura."
Once more Orio's father consults
his wife and sundry other relations
and, having no fault to find with
the go-between's suggestion, in
structs the latter to proceed. The
marriage broker's next step is to ap-
firoach the parents of the young
ady he has in view and arrange a
formal appointment for mutual in
spectionit is known as the "look
at each other meeting" between
the prospective bride and bride
groom at tho house of tho bride's
father and in the presence of that
gentleman and the go-between him
self. Tho meeting usually takes the
form of a conventional tea party,
at which the prospective bride does
the honors. It is perhaps unneces
sary to add that she does not wear
her oldest clothes on this occasion.
ITcre for the first time in their lives
the young lady und Orio set eves on
one another. . Etiquette forbids
them to speak to each other, but
nevertheless they are doubtless very
busy "taking stock" of the other's
appearance and manners. Wide
A Disappointing Disoovery.

Cakes as Love Lettens.
. The Hungarian gypsies use cakes
as love letters. A coin is baked into
the Bweetnioat, which is then
thrown at the lady as she passes by.
If she cats the cake and retains the
coin all' is well, but if she should
fling back the silver it would be fa
tal to the lover's r hopes. Among
the savages of the Arabian desert
the girl is approached without cere
mony while pasturing her Hocks.
She resists strenuously, attacking
her suitor with sticks and stones.
If he succeeds in driving her into
her father's tent she is his. but if
she should resist him lifelong dis
grace would be hid portion.
Antiquity of Bells.
The art of bell founding is un

Saxons are known to have used
bells in their churches, although
probably but email ones, for the

WEDNESDAY WEED DAY
Continued irom gage one
the day will have a side issue, the
cleaning up of the alleys, hut as "Al
ley Day" would not sound very dig
nified for. the city, it was decided not
to include it in the title of the day.
Many of the alleys nhout town,
not only in the business, but in the
residence portion as well, could stand
a few hours work with the rake and
wheel barrow. Against feud's and
along the edges of buildings, the po
lice have noticed many accumulations
of paper and rubbish which will be
dangerious for the public safety on
the Fourth of July, when an exploded
fire cracker or ii falling sky rocket
would set off the heaps of waste like
so much tinder. Not only do we need
the side streets and alleys cleaned
for protection against (ire, but also
that the city may appear at its best
when it is crowded with visitors from
the surrounding towns and country
who will pack the city on the big
gala day which is approaching. It is
hoped that riattsmouth" will be "The
wededliss und spotless town" by July
On' that day the chief of police will
receive orders to nmke the rounds
of the business houses and make a tour
of inspection up the alleys to hut
if the Mayor's not inc has been complied
with and to ascertain whether the un
noticed parta of town arc ina fit and
safe condition for the coming cele
bration of the Fourth, so the firemen
will not have to be on their jobs all
tho day. The Mayor has done his
part in ordering the day, let the people
get busy that the weeds may be as
scarce 'm Plattsmouth as street lights
are in Weeping Water.
