Home life In Greece, particularly lu
Athens, Is peculiar. It might almost
be said that there Is no such thing.
In Mr. Duckett Ferrlmau's book on
"Greece and the Greeks" the manners
ami customs of tho picturesque Hel
lenes, which are little known to the
average English reader, are described
ai length. Mr. Ferrlman states that
the Greeks do not know anything
about the art of making a home.
"One may meet with exquisite clean
llness,” he writes, "with beautifully
embroidered bed linen scented with
r-cemary, but never with what we
mean by cozlness. The Greeks are for
less In tliclr houses than we are, and
when they are at home they appear to
spend most of their time In looking
out of tho window. They nre not given

houses. It Is not that they are nig
gardly, for they will gladly entertain
you at a restaurant at far greater cost
to themselves. But it does not enter
Into their Ideas to ask you home to
dinner, even after an acquaintance of
“ They do not ask each other, so It
can hnrdly be expected that they
should make an exception in the case
of foreigners. The cafe is a second
home to them.
There they meet
friends and gossip. That Is one reason
perhaps why they dislike country life.
“ It offers no alternative to the home:
there the hearth Is the social center,
while In town It Is the cafe. In Atheus
those who do not own the house they
dwell In seldom remain long In the
same abode. Two or three years Is
quite n long tenure.
make n point of moving every year.
“ The imposing facades of Athenian
houses conceal, for the most part, a
bare and comfortless interior, and a
well kept garden Is rare. A garden Is
not made In a year, and a person who
changes his residence every twelve
mouths does not want to be troubled
with much furniture, nor Is he par
ticular ns to Its arrangement, seeing
that It will be carted away In a few
“ Home life lias no resources tor the
Greeks, as It has for us. It alTords
them little o cupntlon and no amuse
ment. They lllce to eat and drink In
crowds, where there Is noise and move
ment. Their Instincts nre too gregari
ous to allow them to appreciate the
domestic Intimacy which we prize.
“ The day chosen for mnrrlage In
Greece is usually Sunday, but the day
o f all days In the year Is the Sunday
preceding the Christmas feast. It is
not fashionable now to be married In
church. In Athens the ceremony takes
place in the house of the bride's par
ents. A temporary altar Is set up In
the middle of the room.
“ At the conclusion o f the ceremony
tho priest and the couple Join hands
and walk three times round the altar,
tho guests pelting them with comfits.
Tho most Important part of the cere
mony Is the crowning of the bride and
bridegroom with wreaths of orange
blossom; hence n wedding Is popular
ly called ‘the crowning.'
“ Love marriages nre rare exceptions.
Tho match Is made by the parents and
relatives rather than by the parties
principally concerned. There nre cer
tain established usages which, though
not legally binding, nre not to be con
travened with Impunity.
“Then It Is considered wrong for
brothers to marry until their sisters
have been wed. Again, girls must
marry In order of seniority. It would
not be right for a girl to be married
while she had an elder sister who re
mained single. The men of a family
are thus naturally anxious to see their
sisters set Heel, and ns a dowry Is In
dispensable Its provision Is often a
matter of serious anxiety and the fruit
of great self denial on the part of the
brothers If the parents nre dead.
“ There nre eases In which brothers
have remained unmarried for years
and have devoted all their hard enrned
snvlngs to the dowries of their sisters.
Among the poorer classes emigration
Is resorted to, not Infrequently solely
with tills object, and many a dowry
