Village Boys In North England Re.

|N THE North of England
some of the oldest of our
Christmas customs are still
faithfully observed; One of
the quaintest ls that of the
village boys who call themselves "The
Mummers." At Christmas time they
perform a little play that ls as old
as the English race.
There are three chiot characters
St. George, resplendent In sllver-pa
pored armor, and brandishing a
wooden sword; Beelzebub, who Is, of
course, the famous dragon; and the
Doctor,- who wears a battered top-hat.
At the boglnning of the play it Is
announced that the*countryside ls he
ilig laid waste by Beelzebub. Varions
minor characters make an appeal for
deliverance from the monster's sway.
Then St. George hursts upon tho scene.
A floreo battle takes place, In which
he slays Beelzebub, but ls himself
badly wounded. At this point tho Doc
tor rushes In with a bottle, which he
places to the saint's Ups.
"Tnk soom O' mah nlff-nnff dnhn

drinks and ls cured.
