MARRIAGE IN PERSIA.
Curious Customs Accompany th. W.«k
Marriage in Persia is a quaint
business. The happy pair aro not
allowed to see each other until they
are formally betrothed, and this
takes place in the presence of a
mullah. The lady appears with her
face thickly ranged and powdered
and her eyebrows painted; it ia
therefore difficult to see what she
is like. She is not allowed to speak.
.At intervals she is presented with
jewels, lumps of sugar covered with
gandy strips of gut paper, or, in
some cases, gold leaf, and sugar
eaady molded into the form of
bowls. A burst of music announces
the arrival of the bridegroom. The
room is «t once cleared, every one
retiring into an inner room. Frdm
behind curtains the women watch
the groom, seated on a thronelike
chair, receive gifts and eat Sweet
meats. -After some dancing and
■moking the men go oat and the
womenfolk come in again.
A smart Persian wedding may
extend aver a weak. On the last
day of the ceremony the bride, who
has been treated as a sort of out
cast, is conducted by a near relative
to a room where she undergoes
further and more elaborate decora
tion. She then vetarns to the gnest
room and her dowry is laid b«fore
her in trays. The dowry often com
prises such queer things as cheap
and highly colored oleographs,
gandy vases and bird cages, and
there are also useful honsehold-ar
Having kissed the hearthstone of
her home, she is given bread, salt
and a piece of gold, and thus equip
ped and closely veiled she is lifted
on to a gayly adorned donkey and,
accompanied by -a circua-like pro
cession of friends, goes to her fu
ture home, where her husband

some authorities, among the prim

opinion of the danger attending it.
after sneezing made a short prayer
to the gode, as "Jupiter, help me."
The custom is mentioned bv Ho

rabbis and others, and is found, it
is said, among various savage peo
