A PHILOSOPHIC MISSIONARY - DION CHRYSOSTOM

THE girl then rose and brought from another hut sliced service-berries, medlars, winter apples, and bursting grapes from a noble vine and placed them on the table, putting a fresh frond of fern beneath. Soon the youths came driving the pig with merriment and laughter, and with them came the bridegroom's mother and two young brothers. They brought fresh bread, a dish of eggs on wooden platters, and baked beans. The woman kissed her brother and niece, and sat down by her husband, saying :` There is the victim which he has long been feeding for the marriage, and the wheat-flour and barley-meal are prepared. The only thing we want perhaps is a little wine, and that we can easily get in the village.' Her son had taken his stand near her, looking at his uncle, who said with a smile, 'There's the fellow who is delaying us. Perhaps he wants to fatten the pig still more.' The youth said, ` She will burst with fat ;' and I, to help him, went on, 'Take care or the bridegroom will grow thin, while the pig is being fattened.' ` The stranger is right,' said his mother ;` he is already thinner than his usual self ; and the other day I noticed that he woke in the night and went out of the hut.' 'The dogs', he broke in, 'were barking, and I went out to have a look.' 'No,' said she, 'you were walking up and down, out of your senses. Don't let him distress himself any longer.' And she threw her arms round the girl's mother and kissed her, who said to her husband: ` Let us do what they wish.' It was decided, and they fixed the wedding for the third day, and invited me to wait for it. I did so with pleasure, reflecting on the lives of the rich and their marriages, the matchmaking, the inquiries into property and pedigree, the marriage portions and dowries and promises and deceptions, the agreements and settlements, and finally the hard words and hatreds that often arise in the marriage itself. I have recounted this story not idly, nor, as some may perhaps think, for talking's sake. I wished to put before the eyes of any who care to see it an example, from my personal knowledge, of the life and existence
