That marriage is a lottery Is not
merely a figure of speech In the prov
luce of Smoleusk, ltussla ; It Is an
actual fact. There fuur times every
year a lottery is held, the capital prize
being a young country girl, with some
times a good dowry iu sheep. The price
of a ticket is about 85 cents. At a
single drawing 5,000 tickets are sold.
He who is fortunate enough to draw
the lucky ticket bus his alternative—
he may m any the girl If she pleases
him, also gaining thereby $4,250, in ad

the ticket over to a friend.

Everywhere over the dwellings of the
natives of the great central plateau of
Bolivia Is the grass cross. Charles
M. Pepper, the author of "Panama to
Patagonia,” states that he rarely found
a hut without this symbolism.
The cross, he wns told, was blessed
by the priest, and then it kept out the
rain, which at times is very heavy.
One old man, whose undoubted ortho
doxy was, at least, without a crust of
superstition, was asked if the crosses
really did keep out the rain.
“ Yes, if the roof Is a good one,” he
Tho minister of a negro church In

Some rare old porcelains and furni
ture were recently sold at a London
auction, bringing prices which attest
to the demand among the wealthy ior
tue fine art works of ancient days. T ue
most conspicuous were old Chinese
vases and beakers and Mandarin jars.
A pair of vases, of what is known in
China as the Hang-tse period, brought
a fraction under $20,000. The Chinese
beakers sold for $15,500. A pair of
Mandarin Jars brought $8,250, and a
pair o f Ky-I.in Jars $2,050. Four Chip
pendale chairs, however, made a good
showing against the curious art of tlie
East, and sold for $18,575, while n
Louis XV clock-case brought $1,800.

The cinematograph has demonstrated
Its usefulness to the science of medi
cine in more ways than one. Dr. W.
G. Chnse of Edinburgh used It to pro
cure films illustrating the convulsions
accompanying an epileptic fit. The
thoroughness with which the subject
has been pursued may be Judged from
the statement that the Sims exhibiting
epileptic seizures measure 1,550 feet
and contain nearly 23,000 minute pic
tures of attitudes assumed during the
convulsions. The value of such records
lies mainly In using them to instruct
medical students so that they may rec-
oguize the character of a fit when en
countered in actual practice.
