The origin of the pretty custom
of placing the wedding ring upon
the finger of the bride seems to
have sprung from the Egyptians,
who presented the bridal ring as a
token of intrusting the wife with
all the husband's property. The
custom was adopted by the early
Christians, and thus it has reached
us in the present day, when the ring
is placed upon the bride's finger
with the words, "With all my world
ly goods I thee endow."
Kings, however, have had other
associations besides those of mar
rying and giving in marriage. Some
Roman rings were hollow and filled
with poison, obviously for the pur
pose of suicide, a crime then con
sidered a virtue. A modern in
stance of this carrying death upon
the finger is that of Condorcet, who
when arrested by the notorious con
vention tore the jewel from his ring
and drank the poison which lay in
