Custom of Erecting Cairns Abova
Bodlts of Dead Was Common In
In I'aleollthlc times, before the At
luntlc burnt In at Gibraltar, baud of
white men often came down from
what la now Hussla. They followed
the Kuilne river, along the present
bed of the Aegean sea, skirting to the
west of a luke that washed the shores
of Crete and entered Africa near what
Is now Tripoli. They were savage
men who carried atone axes, stone
tipped lances, and huge maces. Their
eye were blue, they had long beards,
end wavy red. copper, or sandy hair.
They brought their fumllles with them,
whole groups trudging on by wood and
Horses to them meant only animals
to be killed and eaten, never to be
tamed or ridden. When one of their
loved ones died the whole group
stopped and together they heaped a
cairn of atone and earth above the
body. The custom of building funerul
tumult wa common In their native
Russia. That land la still dotted by
Innumerable burial kurgans, extending
eustward far Into Klherla. In Egypt

thatched cottage reputed to be dot)
years old, and haunted. The tenants
told him that on the first night of
their occupation their dogs showed
the greutest reluctance to enter the
bedroom. Ultimately one was per
suaded t sleep there, and In the mid
dle of the night he awoke and growled
furiously. Still, growling, he ad
vanced with bristling hackles toward
n old Jacobeun cupboard in the cor
ner. Obviously there was something
uncanny shout. "What did you do?'
asked my friend at this point.
"I stuck the bishop of London s
picture on the door." said the inla
tresa of the house, triumphantly.
"That did It."

Hut the term probably originated,
not from this far-flung custom, but
from a man named fireen, who con

his custom to meet the lawmakers at

"MARRIED TO THE' ADRIATIC"
Picturesque Ceremony Thst Was Held
. of Great Importance In Old
A picturesque ceremony performed
annually in Venice In the time of the
doges was the "Marriage of the Adri
atic," a rite symbolizing the dominion
of the city over the neighboring sea.
It was Instituted in 1177 to commemo
rate a great naval victory by the Vene
tians over Frederick Rarharoasa, It la
recorded. I'ope Alexander III in this
year presented a ring to the doge of
that day, and ordered his successors,
every Ascension day, to cast a similar
ring into the Adriatic, promising that
the bride so espoused should be a du
tiful as a wife to her husband. The
first ceremony was performed on As
cension day of that year.
The doge and his suite, accompa
nied by many citizens, proceeded to
the Island of Lido, In the Adriatic. Ar
riving there the doge first poured holy
water Into the sea and then, taking
the ring from his finger, dropped It into
the oceun, saying: "We espouse thee,
a sen, In token of our Just and perpet-
uul dominion." Solemn high mass was
then celebrated, and the ceremonies
concluded with a great feast.
Ruche His Destination.
The steep stairway called "Break
neck' Steps," connecting the upper
and lower towns of Quebec, has been
the scene, according to old Inhabitants,
of Incidents both tragic and ludicrous.
One approaches this stairway (even
with Its Twentieth century Improve
ments) In tight-lipped apprehension,
writes a recent visitor to the French
Canadian city. But In the old days,
at the height of Its dangerous career,
to reach the bottom without accident
was an achievement.
The tale Is still being told of the
gentleman who tripped on the sec
ond stop, fell, but slid to safety,
bearing on his back a lady, who at
his tripping had also tripped and
in her plight clutched the gentleman's
knotted tippet. At the bottom of the
stairway the gentleman politely doffed
his hat and said:
"Pardon me, madame, but this is

Peculiar Indian Custom,
It Is an inviolable covenant within
the Navajo Indian nation that after
the marriage a son-in-law must never
set eyes on his mother-in-law, and vice
versa, a mother-in-law must never see
her son-in-law. The daughters-in-law
are not mentioned.
According to Navajo tradltloas, a
Knvflto rlrl Is considered the property
of her parents until ahe nmi rhas. Trior
to her marriage a contract is maue ue
,n the father of the girl und the
destined bridegroom. When a Navajo
woman marries she becomes free and
may leave her husband for sufficient
cause. A warrior of one clan must
marry a maiden of one of the 51 oth
ers, and vice versa. The descent of
the clans is pii sed along by the fe-
Mason and Dixon Line.
The Mason and Dixon line, in Unit
ed States history. Is a line popularly
regarded as dividing the slaveholdlng
from the uon-slaveholding states. In
reality, it ran for more than one-third
of Its length between two slave States,
Maryland and Delaware. It was run
by two English engineers, Charles
Mason aim Jeremiah Dixon, between
the years 1704 and 1767, for the pur
pose of settling the disputed boundar
ies between Maryland on the one side
and Pennsylvania and Delaware on the
other. The work wus done with such
skill and accuracy that a, revision In
1849. with Instruments of much great
er precision, disclosed no error of Im
portance. All Must Make Sacrifices.
