"Girls and boys in said Mr. Takaki, "are restricted in their court- ship, much, perhaps, like they are in France or England. There is no holding of hands, kissing or strolling along moonlight paths, telling your heart's choice that life without her would not be worth the living. "While things are not so bad as they were five or ten years ago, they are annoying enough to an enthusiastic young couple who are just as eager to spoon as any Yankee girl or boy you ever saw. I should say that now par- ents and cuildren in Japan have about an nq.ua! part in arranging marriages. Formerly the children had nothing whatever to say, as a girl's husband was picked out for her and that set- tled the matter, whether she liked him or not "Of course, even now a girl or boy wouldn't care to wed without tne con- sent of the parents of both, which prevents possibly many unsuitable matches. When a youth falls in love and picks out a girl, he calls on her, but always when her parents are at home." Naturally" under such circum- stances the courtship isn't very long. "We have a strong sentiment in Ja- pan to family honor pure 'and. spotless If a girl doesn't suit the parents of rier, sweetheart, either phy- sically or in regard to the higher edu- cation which we are demanding now, IHey tell their son and that ends it. He picks put. some one else. In the feudal days of-Japan husbands were frequently chosen for young women, the latter never having seen the youns to, thier, marriage. That is all changed I believe much more satisfactory results all around.
