Took the Cake The custom of wearing a wedding veil Is tine of the most widely adopt- ed In the world. Ixmg years ago a bride went lo Ihe marriage ceremony with her hilr hinging over her face, and U Is'from Ihls custom thai tho wedding veil is lo have originated. Eating a special cake at weddings is a custom lhat is very ancient. The early Romans broke a cake over the brlde-'s head as a symbol of plenll- fulness. In the Middle Ages hund- reds of guests were entertained at wedding which lasted several days. A huge jilte ot .small, richly- flavored cakes were heaped at the head of the table bflora the bride and groom. After kissing each other over Ihem for luck, these cakes were broken Into squares over the brldo's head, and were Ihen scrambled for by Ihe guests and tarried away to bring luck. Alter a time Ihe Idea was con- ceived of making the cakes In one mass and Icing them, and that was the first wedding- cake. The custom of throwing a shoe af- ter the- bride for luck Is a survival of an old Dlble custom, when a shoe was taken off ps a token thai cer- tain rights of possession were sur- rendered. At one time women were 'considered the property of tholr father or nearest male relative, and a Saxon husband hung a then -a symbol of a prominent place In the bride's home. Why "Best Man" lu the East, still, a Jewish father, on the marriage of his (laughter, pre- sents a shoe to tne bridegroom as u token tho I he yields up his rights In her.' In "early days when force reigned 1 v supreme, Ihe Anglo-Saxon lover pro- cured his bride by simply lying in Even In this dull, materialistic age Church will be held at the lake on there aro lew to whom e. wedding ThursdjV nf A 10VCly tO 5lll> OVCr SheCr _-f pictured here. henna colored duvciyn. not conjure up some memories, sweet or bitter, and Intermingled iVnes and romance, Answers.

An Interesting decor- ation is revealed In the broad bands of angora that distinguish Its fronts. These are made In a lovely shade of gray thai accords well with Iho russet tones of the cloth.

As the lady sometimes was pursued by her friends, the-lov- er -'would generally have a friend to hch) him draw them off In another direction, or to fight them. This frjen'd Is probably tho origin of "best man."
