In Holland, says a Scotch paper, marriage by próxy is allowed. This is the so called "marriage by the glove," and is nsually put in practice by a Dutohman who is sojouruing abroad aud, ■wanting a wife, is too poor or too f ar off to return home for one. In such a case he writes home to a lawyer, who selects one comformable to the requirements of his cliënt. If the gentleman approves, he next sends the lawyer a soiled left hand glove and a power of attorney, ■which setties the business. A friend marries the woman by proxy, and she is thereafter promptly shipped off to her new home.
