W. D. Ilowells, George
William Curtis and nil the other famous
men of today look back to the time
when they shouted, "Ah, you April
fools!" with as much enthusiasm as, ac
cording to their writings, did Dean
Swift, Cen Jonson and the other great
wits of bygone generations, when they
bad reached their years of mnidiood and
But neither tho one nor the other, nei
ther the celebrities of the Nineteenth
century nor tho celebri ties of the centuries
that have gone before, know anything
about the day wliero it came from, how
it originated or why it was ever cele
brated, and. being celebrated, why it was
handed down to us just us much an in
stitution as is Christinas or Easter.
Learned writers Iiavo dissected it in
gravo volumes and gay; they have delved
deep down into iiutituiity, exhausted
reams of paper, burned gallons of mid
night oil, worn away scores of .pens iu
every ago trying to trace tho origin of
that day with its queer customs, but in
vain. Whether it camo from France
into Germany and from Germany into
England, or just tho reverse, not a sin
glo one of tho students who has probed
the subject is nblo to say. Chambers,
Brand, Hook, Grimm, all searched care
fully for u trace of its origin without
meeting with a reward for their labors,
and the learned scholars who flourish
now have been equally unsuccessful, un
til the conclusion is forced that tho
greatest "April fool" of all is tho day it
self a big joko that has been fastened
on the world for hnndredsof years with
out rhyme or icuson.
All sorts of theories by all sorts of
people aro put forward to account for
tho practice, but at tho critical moment
all tho writers hedgo and wind up by
saying that "no positive authority can
be found to warrant this deduction," or
something else to that effect.
Sim "PICKUD up" a watch. .
One author suggests that it probably
originated in Frauco during tho year
1501, when tho New Years day win
changed from April 1 to Jan. 1. This, hu
gues. loft tho former dato without sig
nificance, '-a burlesque, an absurdity,
and it was concluded to celebrate it
thereafter in an absurd fashion." From
France, ho thinks, tho custom might bu
traced to England uuil thenco to Ger
many, but ho is very careful not to undertake-
this task of tracing himsdlf.
Another fauv.mt thinks he can dato the
custom back to Biblical times, and opines
that it had it) origin iu tho aimless wan
derings of Christ when ho was scut to
and fro between Herod, Pilatoand C.iia
phas; but lileo the other ho studiously
avoids details, contenting hiiiuelf with
the general assertion of his belief. Prob
ably the most reasopablo suggestion of
all is that tho btrango observance was in
troduced into Europe from Hindustan,
though here, as elsewhere, tho connect
ing link is vague. But it is certain that
u similar custom prevails to this day
among tho Hindoos. Their Hull,, termi
nates on the lllst of March, and on that
day it is tho practice to send neighbors
of! on nil sorts of fool's errands.
The greater tho hardship and disap
pointment involved the greater is the
general satisfaction of all tho victim's
fi lends and acquaintances. Anything
and everything is permissible as a "joko"
on this occasion, and no redress, by
courso of l.av or ntherwlso, is possible.
Tho gravo Hindostune.su for onco relax
their oriental rigor aud shout, "Ah, you
April fools!" How tho observ;"jco could
liavo found its way in tho early days of
limited intercourse to general favor iu
Europe is not by any means clear, but
for want of u belter explanation this
way of accounting for tho day is most
Iu Franco records aro found of it at
an early date, and it is set forth that a
"young woman of noblo parentage"
tried in tho latter part of the Fifteenth
century to iuo tho occasion as u scape
goat for her sins. It seems that, like
inuny another young lady of "noble
parentage," this particular young pcrton
had an itching palm for other people's
property. Onco upon u iiino her cupid
ity got tho better of her discretion, and

house to find the stolen watch, which
the "noble" young lady insisted had been
lost. After n weary search the messenger
found tho hidden timepiece, and then
tho imdaeiouj prisoner called tho occa
sion oace more to her rescue, statlug
that she had merely intended to inako a
poisson d'Avril of tho messenger. But
tho stern magistrate turned tho tablo3 by
sentencing her to dur-,mco vile, thero to
remain until tho following April 1, as a
poisson d'Avril. This poisson d'Avril,
by the way, is a peculiar foaturo of the
French April Fool's day, tho Gauls, for
some reason that is as obscure as tho
history of tho day itself, dropping Iho
fool and substituting instead poisson,
making it an "April fish" instead of an
Tho French, with true polish, never
observed tho day with harsh practical
jokes, but across tho channel, and partic
ularly in Scotland, the April fool always
had a pretty rough row to hoe. Like
the Hindoos, tho Scotch found their
greatest delight in sending some coulid
ing and not overbright fellow on an aim
less and indefinite journey. Sa enthusi
astic did the Scots becotno in this sport
that for several hundred years a Tegular
couplet lnis been in vogue for tho uso of
April fool jokers, running:

In England, as in America, tho day is
chiefly sacied to tho uses of the mis
chievous small boy. But otio or two
great April fool sells have become his
torical. Tho most famous of all was the
hoax played on the arittocr.icy by a wag
who issued cards iu April, 1S0O, admit
ting tho noble ladies and gentlemen of
London to "tho Tower to see tho white
lions washed.'' It was an overwhelming
success, as far as calling tho invited
guests out by hundreds went.
Tho elder Sothern played n similar
trick on the swell society peoplo of New
York. He issued cards anonymously to
an amateur operatic performance which
was to be "very select." Tho Academy
of Music, according to tho invitations,
had been secured for the occasion. Tho
elect turned out in swarms. Arrived at
the academy they found a sign announc
ing that becaiD-o of u disagreement with
the owners of the theater tho perform
ance had been transferred to Wnllaok'n.
Ile-entering its equipages society was
driven to Wallack's. Thoro the same
kind of a noticostared them iu tho face,
and they were requested to go to the
Union Square. From tho Union Square
they were sent uptown again to the
Standard, where finally they found a
sign pointing out the fact that it was
All Fools' Day. Then thero was soma
strong languago on the part of tho male
members of society and exclamations
of graded fervor irom tho ladies. It
Irauspiied bomehow that Sothern was
the author of the joko, and ho was over
afterward rigidly boycotted by hi3 vic
tims. Chauucey 31. Depow was an invoterato
practical joker in his youth, though ho
always was careful that his jokes should
bo harmless. April Fools' Day was n per
fect feast for him, and tho "oldest inhab
itants" of "Onr Chauncey's" birthplaco
at Peekskill tell all sorts of hair raising
yarns about the famous orator's annual
pranks on that occasion, Moro door
bolls were "ham strung," clothes lines
tied in knots and strange noises created
in strange places iu neighborhoods where
Chauucey happened to bo than have
been known or heard of sinco.
Mr. Depow, when questioned as to tho
accuracy of theso reports, admitted with
a knowing smile that thero might bo
"soinuthing iu them," but added that ho
never iudulged in the practice now.
IJTT1.E CIIAUNCKV AT 1113 l'HANKS.
David Dudloy Field, the venerable
dean of the American bar, is another one
of tho famous iiieu who was fond ot a
joko on All Fools' Day when ho was a lad.
"Wo plswd all sorts of pranks on one
another," iir. Field said recently, "but
never mvo .iplished anything iu the
April fool Jumlhat is calculated tost.rnd
out iu history. As wo grow older wy
had to drop all that sort of tiling and
attend to business, for Now Euglaud
parents were rather strict disciplinarians
in those duyii."
"Hob" iunerholl, too, recalled lively
April fool l iios when ho was a boy, as
did tho oilier well known men who wero
seen, llui ..una of them had over gono
into the thing with the cold blooded cal
culation t.iat characterised Sothsm's
great "aiuataur opara" joke.
