When the IIopI maid leads the man
of her choice lo the tribal altar, she
does so in the midst of elaborate cere

Nor does she yield this ownership
when she weds. On the contrary, the
house, the fields and ail the property
save the h'rds belong to the wife.
This, ns will lie seen, greatly facilitates
the Hop! method of obtaining a di

husband she simply takes his saddle
from her floor and tosses it out through
her door, and the divorce is completed.
