Folklore) or On. of th. -Ancient Feait
Days TOalch Falls In F.braary.
If weather folklore is to bej believed the!
second day cf February, otherwise Can
dlemas, is a c ntical day, for there is a tra
dition, which obtains in most parts ot
Europe, and which finds expression in this'
country in thu following quatrain:
If Candlemat day be fair and bright.
Winter will 1 ave another ftitrut:
But if Candkmas day bring clouds and rain.
t inter u gui . aiiu wiu not come atfaiu.
. Or, as the S :otch put it: '
If Candle nas day bo fair and clear, j
There'll bj twa winters in the year.
While yet a jother Euglish couplet says:'
When tho wind's in the east on Candlemas day
There it will st ck to the second of May. ;
With this d.iy all Christmas festivities
should come lo an end. Merrick's "Hes-
perides," so often quoted, has several
things to tell us as to ceremonies for Cao-
dlenuis notalily, that now are we to taka
down nil the I oily and mistletoe, the rose
mary ana bay, with which we decorated
i ... -i .
our uuiura aj iurisimas. Another cer
emony to bo observed is to "kindle the,
Christmas brand, and then until sunset
let Jt burn," being careful, however, to
Keep a portion of it with which to "teend"'
(i. e., light) th j log next Yuletide. In con-:
elusion, to remind as that the time of
Christmas feasting and good ch'jer is over,
End now th white loaf and the pie,
And let all t ports with Christmas die.
Candlemas has beea observed by the
Roman Catholics as the feast of the Puri
fication of th Virgin Mary; it is the day
on which all candles for use in the church
during the ensuing year are blessed (hence
its name). Candles so blessed were once
supposed to r oHsess a virtue sufficiently
puwrnui io int;nieu away Uevils and to be
a charm against thunder and lightuing.
This religious ceremony was prohibited in
Enl'tiid by an "order of the council" in
In ancient days it was found conven
ient to adapt ancient feast days ami holi
days to the list of the church, and Candle
mas seems to have been one of them, taking
the place of tli.) hiperciilia of the Romans.
Venerable Med j says: "It is ha ony- for the
church to have changed the lustrations of
the heathens, I eld in the month of Febru
ary ai-ou ml tin fields, for the processions
with hallowed caudles in remembrance of
that divine light wherewith Christ illu
minated the world, whence he was styled
by Simeon a luht to lighten the Gentiles."
Although this day is generally .uowu as
Candlemas day, it is also known in differ
ent places by several other names, as Holi
day of St. Simeon, Christ's Presentation,
and in the north of England it is called
Wives' Feast Lay. ,
Tho Lotus Eaters.
According to Homer, the lotus eaters
were a people v-ho lived on the northern
coast of Africa visited by Ulysses in his
wanderings, an 1 who endeavored to detain
his companions by giving them the lotus
to eat. Whoever ate of this fruit wished
never to depart The Arabs call the fruit
of the lotus the "fruit of destiny," which
they believe is to be eaten hi paradise.
The lotus is a s lrub of two or three feet
high, audits fruit, which is produced in
great abundant e, is a drupe of tho size of a
wild plum, wl ich has a pleasant sweet
taste. The name lotus has also been given
to several beat it if ul species of water lily,
especially to the blue water lily and the
Egyptian water lily. In the mythology of
the Hindoos anil the Chinese the lotus, as
a flower, plays u distinguished part. The
Hindoo deities of the different sects are
often represented seated on a throne of its
shape, or on tae expanded flower. The
color in southern India is white or red. the
last color fabled to be derived from the
blood of Siva when Kamadeva. or Cupid
wounded him with the love arrow. It
symbolized the world, the meru, or resi
dence of the r:ods, and female beauty.
Among the Chinese the lotus had a simi
lar reputation and poetic nieauiiiK. being
especially connected with Buddha, and
symbolizing fen. ale beauty, the small feet
of their women being called kiuleen, or
"golden lilies." .
That Common Word "Average. '
After a fair tr inslation of its old French
body, "aver," into English, only "horse" is
found, and the word becomes "horsage."
The change tends to confusion, but none
the less, explains Golden Days, "horsage"
and "average" are identical, since in the
old time French an "aver" was a horse. It
was also a horse in the Scotch dictionaries.'
and in one of Hums' poems, "A Dream," be
alludes to a hore as a "noble aiver."
In olden times in Europe a tenant was
bound to do cert tin work for the lord of the
manor largely in carting grain and turf
homework, and in the yearly settlement of
accounts the lust proportion of the large
and small work performed was estimated
according to the work done by "avers"
(horses); hence our common word "aver
age." Thing StiitI About Women.
Following are what some French writers
have said about women:
Woman is a charming creature who
changes her heart as easily as her gloves.
A woman forjrives everything but the
fact that you do not covet her. A. de
