Each person melts some lead and pours it through a wedding-ring or key

into a dish of water. The lead will cool in various shapes, supposed

to be prophetic. Any ingenious person will interpret the shapes, and

furnish much amusement for the listeners; thus, a bell-shaped drop

indicates a wedding within a year; a drop resembling a torch or lamp

signifies fame; a pen or ink-bottle, that the future companion is to

be an author; a horn of plenty, wealth; a bag or trunk, travel; etc.
