Tyl HE history of Christmas tree
tfl W I I1H11PA prtollria flit' tntih thn
mists of antiquity. Some
sny Its origin is connected
with the legendary Tree of
Time, Ygdrasil, the great tree of Norse
mythology, within whose roots and
branches heaven and earth are bound.
Some say the custom may be traced to
the Egyptians who, nt the time of the
winter solstice, decorated their portals
with branches of the date palm.
To a Scandinavian legend may per
haps be traced our custom of illum
inating the tree when darkness comes.
Among the Greeks, Christinas is known
as the feast of lights.
To people of different localities to
day the term Christmas tree may moan
flr, spruce, pine, cedar or even mag
nolia., for cuch particular region makes
use of the most suitable species that Is
to be found near its markets. In the
vicinity of the mid-west, a short-needle
pine found in Michigan and Wiscon
sin may be used. On the 1'nciflc const

AN OLD CHRISTMAS CUSTOM
Village Boys In North England Re
produce Play That Is as Old
as the Race.
N THE North of England
some of the oldest of our
Christinas customs are still
faithfully observed. One of
the quaintest is that of the
village boys who call themselves "The
Mummers." At Christmas time they
perform a l'.ttle play that is as old
as the English race.
There are three chlct characters
St. George, resplendent In silver-papered
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 beginning of the piny It Is
announced that the countryside is be
ing laid waste by Beelzebub. Various
minor characters make an appeal for
deliverance from the monster's sway.
Then St. George bursts upon the scene.
A fierce battle takes place, In which
he slays Beelzebub, but is himself
badly wounded. "At this point the Doc
tor rushes In with a bottle, which be
places to the saint's lips.
"Tnk sooni o' -mah nlCf-nnn dahn
thy tlff-tnff," he prescribes. So George
drinks and Is cured.

are so old that neither the hoys nor
