iDOESING THE GRAYE
ORtGIN OF THE CUSTOM OF' PLANT
ING TREES IN CEMETERIES.
From Periods of Remotest Antiquity Last
Restins Places Bare Been Thus Marked.
Varieties of Foliaffa Most in Favor and
the Significance That Attaches to Them.
Men have always given much thought to
the subject of death, and mourners for tho
dead have striven in many ways to show the
depth of their dovotion to their departed
ones by fitting outward manifestations in
their homeb, in the sight of the public, and
about the graves. The grave is so naturally
a place of despair and gloom, and the thought
of corruption goinjr on beneath the surface
of the earth has boon so revolting to sorrow
ing hearts that they have been glad to bring
such ornaments around the place of burial as
would bo signs of grief and yet bo beautiful
and, where possible, suggestive of the hopes
that look beyond the grave.
AX AKCIEXT CUSTOM.
The association of particular plants and
trees with the person of tho dead, and the
abode of death is so far back in the history
of man as to seem one of the fint instinctive
ideas of the human race. There are allusions
to it in the most ancient writings and rec
ords. Ono of tho oldest trees thus mentioned
was a tree of life which grew at tho side of
the road that was passed over by the souls of
the depai ted, and the fruit of that tiee was
the symbol of eternal life. It is probably a
remnant of this old belief that sometimes ap
pears in folk lore tales, where the fruit is
called tho "apple of life."
Way back upon the oldest Assyrian inscrip
tions is probably the earliest representation
known of this troo of life, and although it is
very common among the inscriptions, gener
ally guarded by celestial genii, and some
times also worshiped by royal figures, yet
no one has been able to ascertain its exact
meaning, except that Babylon in its earliest
that is, anti-Semitic days was its special
place of honor, the old nmeof Babylon, Tiu-tir-ki,
signifying "tho place of the tree of
In Greek legend not merely trees but plants
and flowers are connected with the departed.
In the Elysian fields that is, in that part of
tho domain of Pluto where the souls of the
good dwell whole plains were said to be cov
ered with asphodels, the very flowers which
the Greeks and Romans iere accustomed to
placo on the graves of the departed as sym
bols of the futuro life.
Sometimes in the early Christian days the
previous usages of tho inhabitants appear in
local customs, as in France, w here those who
prepared the dead for burial were accustomed
to scatter in the bottom of coffins beneath the
corpse seeds of various plants, probably of
those which they were expected to live upon
in the now life twyond the grave.
The ancient Egyptians were in tho habit
of burying bulbs of flowers and wheat with
their dead, in the belief that tho body was
coming to life again and could sow these
for uso in that now life. Some of theso
kernels of wheat, after being kept for thou
sands of years in the mummy case, have been
planted by tho finders and have produced
wheat very much liko that which is still
grow n in Egypt.
The belief in futuro oxistence probably led
to the custom of planting trees on or near
tombs, especially tho cypress, which was re
garded as a typo of both life and death. Tho
tree growing over the grave was also con
sidered an emblem of the soul, become im
mortal. The bay, according to Sir Thomas Browne,
was originally adopted as a symbol of tho
resurrection, because when to all outward
appearance it is dead and withered it will
unexpectedly revive from the root and its
dry leaves assume their former vividity.
Evergreen tre, whoso growth is like a
pyramid or spire, whose top points heaven
ward, are emblematic of eternity; of theso
the arbor vital and cypress aro tho most fa
vored. The weeping birch, tho willow and Aus
tralian casuarina, with foliage binding to
the earth, find their natural places in church
yards as emblems of human sorrow.
TjIK yew tiike.
Tho yow tree has been considered an em
blm of mourning from an early day. The
Greoks adopted it as such from tho Egyp
tians, tho Romans from tho Greeks,and tho
Britons, after Cissar's invasion, ffom the
Romans. Through such associations, for so
long a period, the yew acquired a meaning
of sacred symbolism which everywhere
made it an ornament of consecrate! church
yards. Hcnca it is very seldom cultivated
elsewhere, although its wood is very valua
ble. It is a little singular that huch a strong
growing troo as tho yow should havo main
tained its placo in England after tho Satons
came in, for one of their peculiar supersti
tions was that the trees prey upon tho bodies
of the dead who rot beneath tuoir shade. At
ono time it was the universal custom to carry
branches of tho yew tree in the solemn pro
cession to tho grave, depositing them be
neath tho body.
In Wales we havo tho evidence of anothor
superstition in the custom of planting tho
mountain ash, or rowan tree, in the grave
yards as a protection against evil spirits, bnt
uot with tho usual idea of the funeral t: ee.
Tho walnut tree, whoo shade is said to pro
duoo death, is in some countries a funeral tree,
and both the elm and the oak axe connected
with the grave by their indestructible quali
ties, on account of which they are used to
this day for coffins, just as the ancients used
thf cypress and tho cedar.
The tree, as bsing lung of life and as ever
pointing upward, has been connected w ith
graveyards from the beginning, but a deeper
and more tender symbolism has been attached
to tho shorter lived and moro beautiful
fiowors, which, in many hues aud varied
forms, havo been so woven into the history
and lejends of all the nations of the world.
Their uso in connection with the dead began
way back in tho times when records w era
first made, and with tho first tales of human
existence mention is made of them.
The ancients planted the asphodel nnd the
mallow around the tombs of the deceased, be
lieving that their seeds gave nourishment to

LOST IN THE MOUNTAINS.
Some six years ago, while connected with
a botanical establishment in North Carolina,
I had business for tho firm, that carried me
into the neighborhood of the far famed Black
Mountain range, ily errand accomplished,
1 lingered in tho vicmity for a day or two, in
order to do a httle prospecting on my own
I had long been desirous of making the
ascent of ilount ilitchell, that heavenward
Eoaring "Monarch of the Blacks," rendered
doubly interesting because of its superior alti
tude and of its pinnacles enshrining tho dust
of its intrepid discoverer the story of whose
tragic d&ith has so often been repeated.
Having spoken of this intention to the
mountaineer with whom I was stopping, be
advised my going round to the Buncombe
county side, and there procuring a guide to
make the asceut with me. as there were bri
dle paths cut from that direction. However,
ho went on to say, if I did not care to take
all this trouble, he could procure a guide for
me on this side, although, he cautioned me
that I would find the route exceedingly rough
and not a little dangerous.
Now, this idea of talang a guide with me
was one I did not relish much. Indeed, it
was tho very last thing I wanted to do. I
was young, self reliant, and full of the spirit
of adventure. "Besides, I wanted something
to brag about among my youthful friends on
my return, and what better could I have
than that I hful made an ascent, alone, of the
gloomy Blacks? Perhans, also, I might dis
cover a new peak, porhaps oven ono of su
perior altitude to the towering Mount Mitch
ell, and thus hand my name down to poster
ity along with those of Dr. Mitchell, Gen.
Clingman, and other famous explorers.
Filled with these thoughts and aspirations,
I procured a generous lunch from tie wife of
my mountaiueer, and under pretense of going
to spend the day and night with an old trap
per, who lived five miles away on the Caney
river, I set oft at daybreak the next morning
on my adventurous journey.
I had made close inquiries in regard to the
various foot paths up the mountain sides,
and had, as I thought, the correct bearings
of the route I ought to pursue pi etty well
fixed in my mind. Indeed, the peak I de
sired to reach was in full view of my friend's
front door, and I was of tho opinion that by
keeping an eye to the direction I would have
but little trouble in reaching it.
I had been repeatedly told of the almost
impenetrable forests of baLam that covered
the upper portion of these Alpine like peaks,
but in my ignorance supposed it would be
quite easy, in spite of tho dense growths, to
trace out the footways.
My host had informed me that it was good
ten miles from his door to tho summit of
Mount Mitchell. Being blessed with a capi
tal pair of legs and well accustomed to using
them, I had calculated that by starting at
daylight I cotdd easily make the trip to the
summit and back to one of the nearer hots
of the mountaineers by early nightfall, any
how. But that I might be the better pro
pared in case I had to camp out, I provided
myself with a blankot and a box of matches.
The former I wore in a roll strapped across
Even in the light chestnut forests that cov
ered tho lower slopes I had much difficulty in
finding my wiy. In many places the trail
was barely traceable. More than once I got
completely turned around, and found myself
doubling bad: upon my own footsteps.
I had never before been in the balsam
thickets. Had I been, I am candid enough
to adnut that I would never, with all my love
of fume and adventure, havo set out alone oa
what very soon I came to realize was a most
foolhardy undertaking. The dense gloom of
the balsams h.ui but littis more than en
veloped me, when I began to wish I had taken
the old mountaineer's advice and have gone
round on the Buncombe county side, ami as
cended by the bridle patbs, bio any other
civilized mortal. Not only did tho almost
impenetrable forests reach avay on everysid,
but underfoot in every direction stretched
great beds of sponge like moss, into which my
loot sank, often above the ankle, and yet left
In vain I looked for tho least sign of a path.
Not one was auywbero visible, not even the
trace of a human being. It was wife ex
treme difficulty that I could now make my
way through some places at all, for the bal

growing low to the ground, form almost im
I liad not gone very far when I discovered
that it wouki be simply madness to continue
on my way unless I could come across a path
of some sort. On trying to retrace my stops,
I found, to my utter dismay, thai I had lost
all know ledge as to nty bearings. Iwassocam
pleiely turned around that I hadnt the least
idea of the direction whence I had entered
I sat-down for a moment to think over fl
situation. I was assuredly lost, and what
was worse, I hadn't the least knowledge of
my wbereoboutfa. If I could get a look at the
sun I thought I might have some idea of the
course I ought to pursue. But the dense,
dark f oliaje of the balsams excluded even a
ray. aud although my watch show ed me that
it was fast neanng noon, tho light about me
was httle clearer than that of twilight.
Af tar resting a half hour or so I started off
again, with the determination tx keep in as
straight a coorso as I could possibly jndge.
Added to the dillicuUy I had previously ex
perienced of making my way through the
densn, overhanging boughs of the balsams, I
now encountered another, and, in many in
stances, a far gi eater. This was from the
numerous dead balsams that had fallen
against the others, and in some places com
pletely barred my W3y. I had repeatedly to
craw 1 upon my hands and knees, xad often to
throw my body flat upon the ground and
wort my way through. I bod proceeded a
mile or more in this manner, asnear&Xcold
judge, when I came suddenly upon a fciad of
clearing, apparently made by the uprooting
of several large trees in a storm. Here I was
enabled to get my first glTr" of the eun

at my watch. It wns now past 2 o'clock, aod

side of this peck, I had now some httle idea
as to my whereaboctB. It was utterly cse

to attempt to reach Mount Mitchell that day.
This peak was not even in ssjjht. aud as far
from me, I now realised, as whec I had first
begun the ascent of the ranjre. My mere
sensible and decidedly safer plvi was to try
to find my way back to my late best's cabin,

my way Tnrougb tnCm. T seemed to be going
up all the time, rather a steep incline at that,
which made my task the more arduous.
Every now and then a huge rock would loom
up in front of me. Sometimes I bad to clnnb
directly over the top of these, and again to
make my way cautiously around some dan
gerously projecting ledge.
The handsof my watch pointed to 5 o'clock,
and I had been for nearly three hours again
wandermg in the balsams, as hopeleasry per
plexed as before, when, just as I had fallen
forward upon a spongy bed of moss, utterly
despairing, I caught the sound of softly fall
ing water. I had eaten nothing since my
early start of the morning, with the excep
tion of a small piece of corn dodger and fried
bacon, the mountaineer's inevitable daily
diet. So great had been my distress of mind
for tho past six or seven hours, all thought of
hunger had been completely driven away, al
though I had long ago beoomo aware that I
was suffering terribly from thirst. The sound
of the trickling water therefore reminded
mo again, and mo6fs forcibly, of this want. I
soon found the tiny stream, making its way
from a fissure in the huge rock near where
I had thrown myself.
My thirst slaked, and a small portion of
my lunch partaken of, I was preparing to
start off once more on what I now realized,
only too painfully, was a hopeless sort of
wandering, when a thought struck me with
sudden hopefulness. I would follow the
coarse of the stream.
Surrounded as the range was with numer
ous large watercourses, nearly every one of
which had its source near the summits of the
peaks, I did not doubt that this tony trickle
was the head waters of some one of the nu
merous creeks in the valley below. I had
much difficulty at first in tracing ont the
thread bke How of water, but gradually it
grew more and more distinct, till, finally, I
had all that I could do to maintain my foot
ing upou the slippery rocks and roots along
Very soon my further progress was arrested
by what seemed to bo the edge of a precipice
of no small extent,' for the water fell with
considerable sound to what I judged was a
pool below. The rododendrons, or mountain
laurel, fringed its' edges with a thick tangle,
while above the great balsam firs interlocked
their boughs. -
I was cautiously .approaching the edge of
tho precipice for the purpose of glancing
over, when a treacherous rock gave way
boneath me, and the next moment I felt my
self plunging downward with that horrible
sensation ono experiences when falling into
space. Itfy feet struck the water, when, with
a sudden terrible shock, I felt my further
Stunned and rendered senseless as I was, for
tiio first few moments, by tho terrific force
with which my downward plunge had been
checked, it was some little time era I recov
ered sufficient consciousness to take note et
lrry- surroundings and of my own situation.
Whon I did I discovered that in falling the
roll made by my blanket had caught in the
bare, projecting spur of a dead balsam that
lay top downward in the pool. It was a veri
table monarch of the forest, with huge trunk,
gray with ago and almost braoohleBS. What
was now the upper portion, with the roots at
tached, rested securely against the topmost
edge of the precipice, while the other end was
buried deep in the pool. The pool itself was
about twenty-five or thirty feet across, and
of considerable depth, as I judged by its dark,
still looking surface.
Toimbnckle the straps that held thoblani.et
across my shoulders was tho work of but a few
moments when nce I had recovered posses
sion of my faculties. Leaving the blanket
and straps to take car of themselves, I scram
bled upon tho balsam, after considerable ef
fort, and with great difficulty, fwr I was stoll
suffering from the shock of tho fall and
made my way by means of tfre boary trunk
to the top of the precipice.
It was now after G o'clock, and the dense
gloom of the balsams had so deepened tbat I
could scarcely see how to make my way
through them. Realizing the utter foolhard
iness of attempting to do aihing further
towards finding my w-ay out through the
dense night that was now fist settling down,
I selected the dryest and most sheltered spot
I couM find near to the stream, aod balding
a fire of the dead balsam bougfes prepared to
spend the night.
The next mornini: about 11 o'clock, after
many hours again spent in what seemed but
.useless effort, I struck a distinct trail. Fol
lowing it with no great diftlcalty, I soon
reached the hut of ono of the mouniaineers.
