ST. VALENTINE'S DAY.
In somo manner tho most mis
ohiovious little god of mythology
got tangled up with ono of tho
mo9t austere Baints in tho Christ
ian calendar, with tho result of
giving us St. Valontino's day.
The Roman feast began in Feb
ruary of tho 3rd century, boing
celebrated in. honor of Pan and
Juno. An incident of this feast
was tho drawing of lota by tho
Roman youth of tho names of
maidens who wore to ,bo their
companions for tho succeeding
yoar. Our early forefathers
found it impoHsiblo to do away
with tho old pagan superstitions
of tho people, contented them
selves with modifying and adapt

sideration from the levors of tho
20th century. Tho true genii
of tho day for the god of love
will bo a complete and varied
assortment of hearts and darts
and everything supposed to sym
bolize tho tender passions.
It is a day that keeps alive an
appreciation of romanco and sen
timent, that tends to keep the
heart ever young, and is woll
worthy of the observance that
sighing lovers and anxious maid
ens can give. It serves to lift us
all for a moment's breathing spell
from the stress and turmoil of
the strenuous lifo and slacken

great activity in tho work of
winding up tho affairs of tho Fivo

tho Senate a proposition to ro

alienation of the lands of Indiana
except in tho caso of' landV'al

proposition will bo pressed on the
ground that such legislation will
be necessary on account of in
creased immigration and a cor
respondingly increased demand
for agricultural lands. It is also
