WIVES WHO NEVER SPEAK. The Corean woman who speaks or even nods on her wedding day im mediately becomes an object of ridi cule, and loses caste. Neither threat cor prayer must move her, for the whole household is ever on the allert to catch n sinicle muttered syllable. Her period of silence often lasts for * week or more, and when complete silence is broken, she only used her tonguo for the most necessary uses.

Some sixty yours ago a Mrs. Jones & native of Pennsylvania, undertook, .or a wngcr of thirty pounds, to re turn mute for the first month of her tnarriage. Iter husband, not being in the flccret, left her only to return later, when- he was apprised of the tcrJl reason of her silence. A Brue .el's couple, named Dupont, quarrel ted so bitterly on their wedding night chat, the wife vowed that her husband ihould never hear her voicc again, fits entreaties wont for nothing,...
