THE Scandinavians, comprising the inhabitants of the lands of Norway, Sweden and Denmark are of one race, yet each leads a distinctive national life. Each of these three countries has its own institutions, customs, sports and pastimes. They have many characteristics in common, and are as a rule, whole-souled, thrifty, industrious and good-natured. Although sober-minded, they readily give themselves up to innocent pleasure. In person, the Norwegian is a big blonde Hercules, raw-boned and strong.

The Norwegian Country Wedding is a pretty institution. The bridegroom on the wedding-morn mounts his steed which bears a bunch of flowers and a garland on the neck. He with a whip in his hand and a nose-gay on his blue jacket, mounts, and with an escort of friends starts for the home of his bride. At the entrance of the parish where she dwells a triumphal arch has been erected, and here a salute is fired from the guns which the friends of the groom carry. The wedding guests have gathered under the arch, and now lead the groom to a meadow owned by the bride's father. She lies hidden here behind the sheaves. When the groom finds her, the jovial company proceed to the house, where the ceremony is performed.

Fishing is not only a sport, but an industry in Norway, and the fish which are caught form a staple article of diet for the fisherman's wife and family. The peasant milkmaid is a picturesque figure in this land. She is to be found everywhere, and the products of her dairy are most dainty and appetizing.

Wooden shoes or sabots are much worn and the peasant who makes them is an interesting figure in every village.

While the Norwegians are not graceful, they are most devoted dancers, and spend night after night, often till broad daylight in that enjoyable exercise.
