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 (• Inviting their friends to their 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 many years. “ 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. Many people 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 months. “ 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 comes to a Greek maiden from across the Atlantic.” W h a t W a s L a c k in g .
