There is no part of the World so
interesting to Christendom as the
continent of Africa now is. Dr.
Livingstone, Barlli, Camming, 1)11-
Chaillu, and others had given it a
peculiar interest already, il-hen the
wonderful expedition Vi)f tk^'X'ew

success, gave to the topic the at-

At this time, therefore, the desi^
to know as much of Africa .is can j
he known, is very general, if not
universal among intelligent people.
'To supply this demand for knowl-
edge, the Union Publishing Com-

stone's own account, remarkably j
graphic, of his discovery oflhe true
sources of the Nile*; and Stanley's
full description of the singular
•• Land of the Moon" in Equatorial
Africa. With all this, th e book
gives an amount of interesting

True, the greeu-grocer may bundle

would not if he could. It seems
like tlie voice of his former self

something mournful in his tone.

comes the word. Part of the wed
always consisted of a ring, placed
upon the maiden's right hand, and
there religiously kept until trans-
ferred to the other huml at the hit-
ter's nuptials. Then, also, were
repeated the marriage vows and
oilier ceremonies, out of which
those-now prevailing have giown.
i he bride was taken "for fairer, for
fouler, for better, for worse, for
richer, for poorer,'' and promised
to be "buxom and bonny" to her
future husband. At the'endof the
li Hill ceremony, the-father of the
bride gave to his new son one of
his daughter's shoes, in token of
the transfer of authority which lie
effected, and the bride was at once
made to feel the change by a tap or
blow on the head giren with the
shoe. Rather a forcible earnest of
future happiness, one would imag-
ine. However, the husband took
an oath to use his wife well. If he
failed to do so, she might leave
him, but by law he was allowed
considerable license. He was
bound in honor to "bestow on his
wife and his apprentices moderate
castigation." We have nothing to
show what amount of castigation
was held moderate to the Anglo-
Saxon ; hut one old Welsh law
decided that three blows with a
broomstick "on any part of the
person, except the head," is a fair
alio.vanee, and another provides
that the stick be no longer than
the husband's arm, nor thicker
than his middle finger. Prior to
the seventh century a wife might
at any time he repudiated on proof
of her either being barren, deform-
ed, silly, passionate, rude habitual-
ly drunk, gluttonous, very garru-
lous, quarrelsome or very abusive.
