Y If marriage is not a failure there

regard In wliieli I lie wedding t in” is
held. Kren the jeweler has a scnii-
coiiteinptMoiis way of presenting the
tray of plain gold hands and a tant

which lie hunts or whistles sofllv lint
none the less significantly, as he
makes a note of the initials to he in
scribed. The very young brides
wear tlie yellow hands, hut in swell
ciie.lcs young married ladies have the
bravado to lay aside the emblem <>l
undying love as soon as' the honey
moon is over.
Among the older wives the ring is
discarded altogether, and if you in
quire about it the matron will calmly
tell you it’s such an unfashionable
piece of jewelry to be obliged to wear,
and as a result the young lady daugh
ters in the family are married with a
seal ring, not one of which can he
procured for the paltry I”, the price
of the yellow band. Kmcralds, rubies
and turquoise, set in small but bril
liant diamonds, are popular as wed
ding jewels, and not a lew bride
grooms have wedded their ideal with
a marquis of diamonds. A bride ol a
month ago was married with a ser
pentine ring, composed of two snakes

ladies out of forty, all attended by
their husbands, wore the plain gold
band. There were clusters of dia

stones by tlie quart, but the single
trio displayed tlie simple yellow hoop.
(irass widows find the band par
ticularly obnoxious, and those gay
and festive wives who have a few
more links of freedom than is whole
some never give it position outside ol
the jewel casket. At ilte resorts and
in social gatherings one hears fre
quent outbursts front the young and
innocent society men who protest
against what they consider misplace

“Don’t the people criticise me lor ap

“Yes,wire; some of them do.”
“Well, Lige, if any one says any

It is said that "Lige” goes around
with the president at Deer I’ark to
keep the red bugs off. The red bug
is no respecter of persons: it would as
soon fasten itself on the calf of the
president’s leg as on a peasant. Great
ness is no guarantee against red bugs.
