MARRY TO BECOME MEN.
ir Korea Males Are Locked Upon as
Children Until They Wed.
The Koreans marry very young, gen-
erally between the apes of twelve and
fifteen. For a woman to reach twenty
without marrying is considered a ter-
rible thinj^ A peculiarity of these
weddings is that they w.ouid appear lo
be a matter of interest to every one
except the parties mostly concerned,
who often see one another for the first
time on the wedding morning. This is
because in a Korean household the
boys are kept apart from the girls, the
father and the sous occupying the
front of the house and the mother and
daughters living in the rear of the es
tablisbmeut. Moreover, in their social
life the boys are not allowed to mix
with the gentler sex.
The parents and friends arrange the
match in accordance with their own
interests, aud if both parties agree and
the_bargain is concluded the formali-
ties are of the simplest. There is no
religious ceremony aud no legal con-
Early on the wedding morn the best
man arrives to tie the bridegroom's
pigtail In a knot on the top of his head.
This not only remains forever as an
outward and visible sign of his condi-
tion. but entitles him to wear a hat /or
the first time in bis life and to be
treated as a man and enter public life
He may be a mere child, twelve years
of'age, but lie has no longer any right
to play with his boy friends and must
choose his associates among old men.
tli' lias now all civil rights and is
expected to behave accordingly If. Ai
the contrary, a man is unable to afford
the luxury of a home and a wife, he
may rea< h the age of fifty, but he must
still wear his pigtail down bis back,
has none of the advantages of citizen-
ship and is expected to play with kites,
marbles and such like. Any folly he
may commit is excused in the same
way as the naughtiness of a child who
is not responsible for his actions
The wedding ceremony itself is most
simple The whole function consists of
a procession when the bride and bride-
groom are conducted by their respect-
ive relations to a dais There they are
put face to face and probably, as al-
ready stated, see each other for the
first time. They merely glance at one
another, then bow, and the knot is tied

health have nothing to do with each |
other. The physical exercise that
causes the former is. however, con
ducive to the latter, for it makes a man
breathe deeply, sets heart pumping
more vigorously, aids his stomach and
intestines to digest better, distracts the
mind from care and promotes sound
sleep. But great muscular strength
often exists with poor power of resist-
ance to disease:
The most obvious proof of this is in
the resisting power of women. Wom-
an's vitality is greater than man's.
She resists starvation better; she is not
so susceptible to cold or heat; she can
stand a greater loss of blood; when
poisoned she is more likely to recover,
