Valentine's Day Is a singular com
bination of things most wonderfully
unlike. The crimson thread of a mar
tyr's death twined with tha blended
gold and tinsel of sentiment, making
the anniversary of a tragedy turn In
to a day when love demands special
offerings and fancy has free play In
comedy or caricature. But all the
world loves a lover. This is as true
to-day, la this prosaic era and In mod
ern life, as it was when the poet of
the world Erst gave utterances to the
Many are the beautiful Illusions
that have vanished and died away
with the passing of old superstitions;
still there remain a lew to cheer the
hearts of vs old fashioned folk, and
Valentine day Is one of the bright
festivals that can never die. They
will say the world Is growing old;
that tenderness is out of date; that
sentiment has gone from life forever.
A modern legend tells us that in this
bnsy twentieth century St. Valentine
with Peter's leave, revisited tho earth,
thinking; to find youth and life and
love the same as of yore. But, oh.
he was a sorely dlsapiwiinted saint.
He found the girls too much absorbed
with fine clothes and hunting for rich
husbani!s; too full of club business;
too fond of admiration; tho boys too
full of athletics, and cards, aud cigar
ettes; too lazy to work for the be
loved one. In short, both girls and
ooa j forgotten their friend oi
other days; so what could the good
saint do but go back lo bis home and
vow to l.-ave them all hereafter to
take care of themselves?
But we will not believe the doleful
tale. Human nature has not changed
with the changing years, but is the
same today as yesterday. The H;h
of February comes each year In mock
at those who doubt. The charming
fancies that cluster around It have
come down throu-h the centuries, a
priceless survival from the childhood
of ihe world. Khorn of its religious
meaning, s.tdly neglected, nay, scorn
ed by those who worship at the mod
ern altar of money and "getting on
In the world." the birthday of St.
Valentliie. patron of love and mar
riage, will nut ir be forgotten by
those who hold In their hearts the
ouutaln of eternal youth.
