days the world breaks out Into a ehoul of
The history of the day Is both Interesting
and peculiar. Its name la derived from
that of tho ancient Anglo-Saxon goddess
of spring Ostern or Kostrc, whose festival
was celebrated about the time of tho Chris
tian Easter. It was SOO years after tho
death of Christ before the date of the cel
ebration of His resurrection wns definitely
settled by the church. The Jewish Chris
tians Indeed did not celebrate the resur
rection at all, but on the 14th day of the
month. In which tha 14th day falls on or
Immediately follows the vernal equinox,
which was the day on which the old Jew
ish feast of the Passover was celebrated,
the Jewish Christians celebrated the death
of Christ, to them tho Paschal lamb
(Christ having died, according to their
chronology, on the date of tho celebra
tion of tho Jewish Passover). Thus, the
Jewish Christians celebrated not the res
urrection but the death of Christ.
Tho Gentile Christians, however, were
not bound by any of the Jewish traditions.
Sunday being the lord's day to them,
they therefore celebrated the resurrection
of Christ on the Sunday following the Hth
day of tho moon of March, the day on
which Christ died. The Jewish Christians
thus celebrated the 14th day of the month.
irrespective of the day of the week, and the
oentilo Christians ceieorated a sunany, ir
respective of tho day of the month. If
this confusion had not been resolved by
the proper ecclesiastical authorities, wo
might havo been celebrating the dav nt
the present time, according to our Individ
ual rellirlous nredllectlons.
The early church was torn with bitter
aissensions regarding mis conuiut oi cus
tom as to the celebration of Easter. Var
ious attempts were made to fix a stable
day which would be observed by the church
ns a whole, but they all failed. Finally, at
tho council of Nice, A. D. 323, the question
was settled once for all. and the date now
observed throughout tho Christian world
was established. Raster day was then
fixed as the tlrst Sunday after that full
moon which liannens on or next after
March 21. If the full moon happens on a
Sunday, tnc lonowing ounuuy is iiaier.
Tho dav can tbereforo be as early as
March 22 and as late as April 23.
In Franco tho year began with Easter
Sunday until tho year 1M1 (the date. of
Shakespeare's birth), when Charles IX.
fixed January 1 as the first day of the year.
It was the custom of the early Chris
tians to salute each other with a kiss on
Easter morning nnd with the greeting:
"Christ Is risen." To this the response. "Ho
Is risen Indeed," was made. This custom
Is observed In the Greek church to-day,
especially In Russia, Many curious cus
toms and beliefs grew up out of the cele
hratlon of the day. In Ireland there Is a
legend that tho mm dances In the sky on
Easter morning. The game of ball used
to be the favorite sport, in which town cor
noratlons Joined, through their representa
tives, and until quite recently the game
was kept up at llury St. Edmund's by
twelve old women. ,,..,., .
In the North of England It Is the custom
for the men to parade the streets on Easter
day and claim tho privilege of lifting
every lady they meet, three times from the
ground, exacting the forfeit of a kiss or
sixpence each time. The ladles have the
privilege of doing the same thing by tho
men on the following day. In various
countries games are played with baskets of
eggs. In which tho players whose esss are
the hardest win the came.
Not every person knows why eggs nre
one of tho symbols of Easter, and why
they are so plentiful, It Is said that tho
use of eggs on this day grew out of the
fact that, no meat being eaten by devout
Catholics during the three preceding days,
'..irge quantities of eggs accumulated nnd
this bui plus was disposed of by coloring
them nnd allowing them to become tho
playthings of tho children. This custom,
of course, originated In tho Catholic church
but has been ndoptcd by nil civilized coun
tries of the globe.und there arc many varia
tions of the custom. Presents of fancifully
colored eggs are made in many places.
An Interesting fact In connection with tho
Easter season of lSO'i Is tha following: An
eminent French astronomer mado the state
ment a few weeks ago that on Good Fri
day, tho Friday before Easter and the day
on whloh Christ died, tho position of tho

Good Friday, or April 12, A, D. S3, the very
day Christ died. This statement rained
wide attention until Chicago astronomers
declared that It was incorrect, and that It
was Impossible for the planets to occupy

They declared It will take a trifle like 16,

a cross, It was begun about the year 7i.
Its most lmprrslve Architectural features
nre- lis twv Norman towers, WO feet In

beautiful chapter house. One of the tow
era contains a bell weighing 12,0(10 pounds
and the other a chime of eleven bells. The
Exeter cathedral Is situated In Devon
shire. The Ely cathedral Is located near Cam
bridge, England. The original edifice was
built by Peada, king of Mercla, In the year
0j.i, only a few years before the great Exe
ter cathedral. It was destroyed by tho
Danes at the time of the Danish conquest,
and was afterwards rebuilt in very nearly
its present form. Catherine of Aragon,
one of tho wives of Henry VIII,, nnd
Mary queen of Scots, were both burled In
the cathedral, but the remains of the latter
were removed by James 1, to Westminster
The most elaborate celebration In this
country will be in tho greatest American
cathedral, that of St. Patrick's in New
York. The Easter celebration In this ca
thedral costs annually $:'0.000. and Is wit

York will preside at the celebration and
will bo assisted by fifty priests.
The preparations for the celebration of

the usual elaborateness. Tho celebrations
In the Catholic and llplscopal churches will

THE I.ANtilTAOH III' Tlt.tlli:.
Words mid Phrases Tint Don't Describe the
Things They Are Applied To.
Tour cloth is better than that," said
tho tailor to the customer, placing two
pieces of worsted diagonal side by side.
"What's tho difference?" asked the cus
tomer. "Well," said the tailor, "the other la
good part cotton."
"And mine's all wool?" ashed tho cus
tomer. "Yours Is mostly wool," replied the tailor,
looking at the customer with evident sur
prise at his Innocence, says the New York
The cant phrase "all wool and a yard
widu" has coma to mean half cotton and
twenty-seven Inches wide. Some persons
believe mat tne uurercncu ooiwecn pnratu
and fact Is to be attributed to the hlgn
tariff on woolens and worsteds, but such
discrepancies run through all branches of
trade, whether they ate affected by the
tariff or not. Every real thing has come
through modern Ingenuity to have an ad
mirable counterfeit bearing the real thing's
name, and so meaningless have names te
como In trade that the retailer sets the
counterfeit under the name of the real
with little or no consciousness of untruth
fulness. Mule customeis fall to understand
this, and are outraged on discovering that
the thing does not torretpond to Its name,
but women who are born shoppers lone

Women Judge not by the name, but by tho
price, the fed," nnd otlirr Indications to
which men arc blind. It was dlscovtred a
rew years sign that many Imported Pllks
were made with only a small percentac
of real silk, along with clay for weight
and so.ip for luster, while American man
ufacturers wore tummy nut the real thing
nnd finding It despised.
There Is n regularly recognised set of
substitutes' In every department of trade,
Just as the druggists hac substitutes that
are made lo serve when some unimportant'
Ingredient Inn prescription is not nt hand.
The word porcelain has actually lost Us
true significance, save, perhaps, irvthe nr.o
arts, and cooking utensils nre glibly sold as
"porcelaln-llnrd" that have merely an In
ner siirfa.e of coarse, glazed clay. A
Philadelphia!! Invented, a good many years
ago, a sort of while nlass for lamp shades,
and called It hnt-cast porcelain, and now
many forms or white glass ate sold ns
IHircelalh. It has ceased to be iv He, be
cause all the world knows that the term
Is purely conventional.
The phrase "antlipie oak" has gradually
come to mean, in the language or the
cheap furniture makers, stained ash, or
even poorer material, and the rug Import
ers have contributed to trade the verb "to
antique." with Its past participle "anti
qued," the form commonly used. "Mahog
any" will soon mean In the language of
the cheap furniture trade any wood naln
i'd Into distant Imitation of new mahogany.
Of course, the latter. In turn, Is stained to
Imitate old mahogany, and Is sold as such.
Celluloid has become a counterfeit fur al
most anything, and Its- protean devices arc
immeasurable. It goes as often as not as
Ivory, and doubtless there nro Rhopkeepcrs
that sell It as such with no tense of fraud.
The terminology of the hardware trade
Is in a chaotic state by reason of tho way
In which counterfeits have obtained cur
rency. "Steel hatchets," made of cheap
Iron, are sold at 23 cents, and the substitu
tion of Iron for steel runs all through the
trade. The merchant gauges his custom
er and olTers the counterfeit or the real as
the case scents to demand, without any
sense of dishonesty. Electroplated iron
goes for bronze and cast lion goes for
wrought Iron. The fraud Is so transparent
to any one buying with bis eyes open' that
It scarcely seems worth quarreling about.
The merchant acknowledges the nature of
the counterfeit when pressed, and takes no
shame In the acknowledgment. Perhaps
home of them never see the real thing and
are Innocent of even constructive fraud.
When It comes to leather goods the same
system of counterfeiting prevails. You may
get what Is technically called an "alliga
tor skill" traveling bag at any price you
wish to pay, but no man with an eye In his
head Is ever deceived by the transparent
dev ce, and the dealers deem it mi Innocent
trick to pleuso purwms in search of what
they cannot buy.
You find the far East side shops a gro
tesque mimicry of fashionable shops in
Ilro.idway nnd Fifth avenue. Things hi tho
latter arn reproduced In counterfeit In the
former at prices to suit customers.
It is possible to tiimlsh an East side
house and clothe ail East sldo family In the
queerest counterfeits of, tho articles that
go to furnish a fashionable home nnd clotho
ts inmates. The thing long ago ceased to
bo a reprehenhlblo fraud because It was too
transparent, unit when tho East side cuiln
mer wishes the real thing ho iays the real
price without grumbling. The language of
tr.ailo has ceased to be a lie and has be
como a huge Joke.
