In (lie Hook of
l.ovltlcus. ', li o
leaut was to last
tsevcit days, ami
on tho first day
Hit' people were to gather houghs or
cedars and willows of tho hroolts. It
may ho from this custom that tho
present day decoration of churches
with greens and vegetables arose,
IIci'oclottiH mentions this autumn
custom of thanksgiving, and Homer
Wiltes that "cakes and lumps of
dough tluown at the head of tlio unci I
llclal victim formed a part or the
Uieek offerings to Apollo, tho sun-god.
at the feast of tho iugiitlieilng."
In anciont times Apollo received tho
honors of the harvest festival, hut tho
rustics uncritical to Yucttna, the god
doss. Images of Vneuiui woro mado
of t.trnNv, wheat, harloy nnd rye, nnd
were carried ahout with Hinging und
cheering. Kvon now In l'nghinil Im
ages made of strnw crowned with flow

called Ceres the goddess of agricul
ture. Apollo was formerly worshiped
lit lltli.'iln, and tho Mny-jiole is a
pretty telle of those days. They dec
orated ft with garlands to welcome the
northwatd coming of Apollo tho sun
at whose appearancu the Mowers
and fruit begun to grow.
Various customs, all containing thu
Mime Idea, havo prevailed In different
countries. In Scotland, when tho
reapers havo finished their work, a
small package of com, culled tho
"Corn Lady," Is hung up In tho house.
The ancient ICgyptlnus offered sacri
fices and mado offerings of corn and
wlno to I.elth, tho mother of tlio sun.
AVhent, according to both nacted and
secular history, was I ho most Impor

mode of harvesting It Is Interesting
JueU.uI of tho usual method Hie reap

of corn. It was carried in hags to tlio

out by oxen. Sometimes tho wheat

always employed to separate the
wheat from tho straw.
What is known ns "the shouting of
the churn," comes down from tho time
when Apollo was worshiped In Kng
land. Tho churn or kern means nilng
or circle formed by several persons
holding hands. The word churn also
HlgnlfloH n rhaplet worn around tlio
hand or carried suspended on n polo
In proce3sioii. So "tlio shouting of
tlio churn" means tho merriment that
always accompanied wearing a chaplot
or dnncing In a circle.
Another old custom Is tho "keinp
ing" of England, in Scotland called "n
moll." Moll Is sometimes spelled
moleo, which Is better, as n melee,
or low, often resulted from contend
ing for leadership In dispatching tho
last day's work in tho field. I'ach
t caper left n handful of tho harvest
iiucul, and tho bonniest lass was ul
lowed to gather these handfuls and to
maku out of them n "com btiby." 'fills
was brought homo in triumph, n-t up
In tlio feast, nntl preserved for iho re
mainder oi tho year. The lass was
called tho harvest queen. SoiiioKuich
Instead or being initdo Into a doll tho

"In ovorythlng give- thanks" Is not
ouly a ilfiltteoua demand which ('oil

anything, wo cannot linyo full confi

"I am now SO joaru old, and three

only help for 1110 was to go to a
hospital and be operated on. I tiled

not get much help. During this time
sores appeared which changed to a
