afternoon Mr. James Christopher Fiango
and Miss Sarrtli Kelley were married at
the chapel on the rancheria. The corn-
niony was performed by the Rev. E.
Graham , and the occasion was remark
able as being the first on which two In
dians ever were married hero areording
to Christina ceremonies. The bride was
attired in a rieli velvet drosswith orange
blossoms at her throat and in her hair ,
and the groom wore a neat suit of black
diagonah They wont through the cera-
mony without a break , evidently having
practiced it all beforehand. The church

ceremony there was a general kissing all
the way around among the Indians , and

Marriages Among Victoria's Subjects.
The marriages registered during the
year 183. ) , says the Queen , numbered
100,715 , giving a rate of 11.4 persons to
every 1,000. This is the lowest marriage
rate since civil registration began , and is
equaled only once , in 187 ! > . It is often
often supposed , and it has been st.Ued in
works of high authority , that marriages
increase as the price of teed diminishes.
Tills is certainly not true at present in
this country ; and , indeed , the registrar-
general states that the marriage rate has
of recent years varied , not inversely , but
directly with the price of wheat ; and
this statement lie illustrates vvitli a table
in which ho sets down the marriage rate
for the twenty-six years up to the unto of
this nook , together with the value a head
of the population of the United Kingdom
in exports and imports , the average price
of wheat a quarter , and ( during eighteen
years ) , the amount cleared at the Bank

The Marrlagci of Conslnw.
Science : From the physician's point
of view , tlio evidence ! from the animal
world is impoi tant. Hero there is almost
consensus , that , while the olToct of "In-
nnd-in brecdlli" is to intensify points , in
the long run it is opposed to vigor of
constitution. It is to be remembered that
every breeder takes care to exclude any
animal with any known morbid ten
dency , while , on the contrary , in the
genus1 liomt ) , as Dr. Clouston remarks ,
tlioro seems to bo a "special tendency for
members of neurotic families to inter
marry.11 Tho'result ' of this will bo that
in some portions of tlio population tlio
ollspringof such marriage will sltow tlio
nvil results of it to nn unusual extent.
And thus vv.o lind that in rural and espec
ially in mountainous districts , .vriicrc
the population is small and IliH
comparative amount of idiocy is
tuuu elsewhere. Statistical i
tlouIs inadequate on the subject ;
the motion to include it in the
census returns of England
was rejected "amidst tlio scornful
laughter of the house , on the ground that
the idle curiosity ot speculative phllosr >
pliers was not to bo gratified , " In Franco
the returns have jrivou nso to various
estimates ( varying from 0-10 to 3 } or 3
per cent ) of the frequency of consanguine
ous marriages. Mr. ( } . It. Dnrvvlu came tote
to the conclusion that in London 1 } per
cent of all marriages were between iirst
cousins , in urban districts 2 per cent , in
rural districts i.'J per cent.
If , now , wo ascertain the ratio of idiots
and Insane patients that are the ollspring
of such marriages to the total number of
patients in the asylums , wo will have
some means of estimating the results of
consanguinity. From quite nn extended
scries of records it is concluded that the
ratio just referred to In the idiot asylums
is from il to o per ccnt.henco "lirst cousin
marriages , at any rate , are to some ox-
tout favorable to tlio production of Idiot
children.11 But this conclusion must bo
tempered by the consideration that in a
number of cases of Idiocy and imbecility
other causes for this condition are pres
ent ; and this consideration leads Dr. A ,
Mitchell to tlio opinion that "under fa
vorable conditions the apparent ill ctt'ects
of consanguineous marriages were fre
quently almost nil , while if the children
were ill-fed , badly housed and clothed ,
the evil might become very marked. "
From such facts and liguros wo may con
clude that lirst cousin marriages should ,
as a rule , be discouraged ; out that , if
close scrutiny reveals no hereditary
weaknessneuroticor otherwisetho banns
need not invariably be forbidden.
Wedding nines in Vo Olden Times.
Jewellers1 Weekly : It was a pretty
custom , long ago , foi lovers to exchange
rings. The gentleman did not have to
spend a months' income for n pretty
trinket for which ho got no return , but
ho also were and cherished n souvenir
fiom his sweetheart. Chaucer describes
a heroine as giving iier lover a ring on
which were engraved suitable love mot
toes , and receiving a like ono in return.
Shakespeare makes more than ono allu
sion to this custom. In the "Two Gen
tlemen of Verona,11 Julia gives Porteiis
a ring , saying , "Keep you this remem
brance for thy , Iulia's sake11 To which
lie replies : Why , then , we'll make ex
change ; hero , take you this. "
A "gimmal" or linked ring was then
invented which gave still greater force
and significance to the custom. It was
made of a double and often tnnlo link ,
which turned upon a pivot. It could be
opened , fallowing tluco rings. A small
hand was attached to cacliouterrin g ,
which , when closed , caused the hands to
clasp , inclosing a heart which was af
fixed to the central notched ring. It
was customary to break those rings
asunder in a solemn manner over the bi
ble. It was always tlono in the presence
of a witness , who kept the centre ring ,
the bcthrothcd couple reserved tiio two
outside links. When the marriage con
tract was fulfilled at tlio altar tlio three
portions were united and the ring used
in the ceremony.
An Abrupt Matrimonial Offer.
Boston Budget : The following story ,
concerning a Boston hotel man anil his
estimable wife , comes to the cars ot the
Sauntcrcr and is a unique contribution to
hjincneal lore. Tlio gentleman is noth
ing if not severely practical in many
things , and notably in his opinion of the
matrimonial relation. When lie made up
his mind to got married , lie took a rather
short cut to the consummation of Ids" de
termination , and , addressing the lady by
her Christian name , voiced his proposal
in the following unique style : "I con
sider maviiago a purely business transac
tion ; there is no love or nonsense about
mo ; now , with this understanding , will
you marry me ? " .
Such a frigid wav " of putting this all-
important query "appreciably lowered
the temperature in that vicinity , for a
lew minutes , at least , and the lady is not
to bo blamed for the immediate "No"
given in answer. "Very well , " said Mr.
Icicle , "suit yourself. " The lady , evi
dently regretting her hasty negative ,
immediately retracted witli , "Yes , I
guess i will have you , " and Cupid , hav
ing completed his task , packet ! his
quiver and hastened to a warmer climate
to get thawed out , leaving "IVo souls
with but a single thought , two hearts
that beat as " well , as they always
did , each thumping away on its own ac >
No Longer Fashionable ,
Kissing the bride at a wedding Is no
longer fashionable , so tlio clergymen
who ollieiates at society weddings in
futuie will miss the labial perquisite. "In
deed , " saj's the latest ; book on ctiquotto ,
kissing in public is no longer permissible
in good society , and a reserved and re
fined womanhood has been long in re
bellion against this usage without having
abolished it until quite recently. This
public may bo her own invited and wel
comed guests , but all the same she ob
jects to being kissed in their presence ,
and very property. Indeed , few brides
are willing to have their veils raised and
thrown backward until they have left the
church. Tills , also , is in excellent taste. "
Another old favorite is also gene ,
"Thank yon ! " lias ceascil to bj etiquette.
Head tlio new rule : "A gentleman al
ways lifts his hat when ottering a service
to a lady , whether ho is acquained with
her or not. It may bo the restoration of
her dropped 'kerchief or fan , the receiv
ing of her money to pass it to the cashbox -
box of a car , the opening of her umbrella
as she descends from a earriage all the
same ; he lifts it before he otters his .ser
vice , or during the courtesy , if possible.
She bows , and , if she chooses , she also
smiles her acknowledgment ; but she does
the latter faintly and she does not speak.
To say "Thank you ! " is not an excess of
acknowledgment , but it has ceased to be
. * * * When
etiquette. a gentleman
accompanies a lady upon whom such an
attention is bestovved , ho always lifts his
hat and "Thank "
says , you !
Tiio etiquette of the street lias not
changed much. Between intimate
friends it ! H immaterial which bows first ,
but in all other cases it is the lady's place
to rccogin/.o the gentleman , and it is his
prerogative to respond. "A carefully
bred lady will novev be capricious in her
public recognitions of gentlemen , nor
will slio bo demonstrative. Self respect
withholds her from expressing any private
Bontimcnts of dislike in her public greet
ings , although she may refuse to rccog-
ni/o an acquaintance for good and snlll-
cient reasons. Her recognitions will bo
fully polite or they will not bo made at
all. " Even though a lady be ollended
toward a gentleman , ho mu-.t not pass
without raising jn's eye ? . Etiquette per
mits a gentleman when driving and ho
can not touch liis hat to make a cordial
bow. If riding in the saddle , ho may lift
his hat or touch its rim vv.ith his whip.
