by Hpring Ins not ct had time to lose
anything of its refreshing .splendor to
the almost tropical hum of old Sol's

with nature. The business man is
satisfied with himself and the rest of
the world, because of the stirring im

by the touch of home-feeling manifest

memory a chord which the touch of
human voice can ring into the sweetest

hilarious mirth. I he very streets tell

all men. The aloha that your noble
Hawaiian palms would the more ap
propriately tell forth, we hae to speak
with "Christmas hush,", the wattle

all the same, the sentiment is there

lime Ch rial mil In Arir In llir lllilr).
A very interesting volume might be
written on the yule rites which still
exist in the primitive house-communities
of the Serbian highlandcrs
inhabiting the Hlack Mountains in
Montenegro 'says a writer in Frank
Leslie's. A visitor to the ancient town
of Risano, in Dalmatia, in the week
preceding the great Christmas, will find
it thronged with Cnvoscian, Montene
grin and I Icrrcgovinian peasants from
the neighboring mountains, making
their lliristmas purchases, and com
pleting their preparations for the festi
val. These preparations arc begun on
the sixth Sunday before Christmas
the " Pokladc, or carnival-day before
the Christinas fast, when every possible
kind of meat dish is set on the tabic
Supper ready, they take a morsel of
each kind of food and a bit of bread
for each member of the family, and set
them out on the roof of the house.
Evidently these morsels were originally
set out as family olTerings to the house
spirits. 1 he explanation, however, at
present given is that they act as a charm
against witches and uncanny spirits
who fly about like sparks at night.
In the same way they smear their
faces, breasts, hands and feet with fat
or oil before turning in for the night, as
a protection against the "Moras";
young girls, that is, who during sleep
nave me power ot going lorth as night
mares to suck the breath of sleepers.
A great deal of meat is always eaten
this evening, and the youths even get
up in the night to finish their meal,
which it is a reliuious dutv to entirclv
Next day no one must eat. " or the
spirits would shoot them with arrows."
On the morning of this, the first day of
the Christmas fast, even' member of
the family is very careful to rinse out
his mouth with water, lest even a scrap
of meat should stick to the teeth. The
house-elder now looks out some ani
mal pig, sheep, goat,- or fowl to be
fed up for the Christmas feast during
the whole time that the fast lasts.
Rich and poor alike do this, even the
poorest families buying a, chicken if
they have no stock of their own, as it
would bca terrible misfortune not to be
nble, as they say, " to make the knife
bloody for Christinas."
On "Tuchni dan," or "slaughter
day," the third day before Christmas,
the animal thus set apart is slaughtered
by having its throat cut, is cleansed,
and hung for Christmas morning.
A writer in Macmillan's Magazine,
who visited Risano, and was admitted
into the family of a local "pope' far
up the Hlack Mountains with whom he
spent the festive night, gives an enter
taing account of his experiences and
observations. He says:
"As the hour for the Christmas
feast drew near, the 'Christmas guest'
came to the door. Among these
mountaineers, and, indeed, among the
Serbs generally, it is a universal cus
tom for each family to choose some
goodly youth of their acquaintance as a
droppcr-in for the Christmas Day fes
tivities. He is called the ' Polaznik,'
and where strict rites are observed no
one except this chosen guest visits the
umiiy on Christmas Day. Our polar
nik proved to be a sturdy youth of
some fivc-and-twenty years, who, as he
approached the threshold, cried: 'Christ
is porn I' and scattered some corn
from his hand inside the dwelling
house. Welcome I ' replied the house
mother, who stood at the door to meet
him ; of a truth he is born.' and threw
a handlul of corn in his face, .as she
had done before to the bringers-in of
the yule-logs. The polaznik now ap
proached the ule-fire. and takinc un
the remains of the chief log, which was
not yet burned through, knocked it
against the cauldron-hook above, so as
to make the sparks fly, sa)bg,ashe
did so : "So may our donuchui have
alt good luck and happuw, and may

HONOLULU, HAWAIIAN ISLANI
with the same log struck the cmlier.
below, saying as the sparks flew again :
1 Kven so may our our brotherlhc
domarhin have oxen and cows, and
goats nnd sheep, anil all good luck I'
Having done this, he laid an orange,
and upon it a small coin, on the end of
the log, which the clom.tchitza prompt!
took possession of. In return for this
til ft she presented the polaznik, when
he left, with 'char.tic' and 'n.vakc,'
the leggins and socks in use among
these mountaineers, and with these a
Christmas I0.1I or 'pogatrh.' The polaz
nik now, according to immemorial cus
tom, asked his host, the domarhin,
'how Christmas had come to him, anil
whether he was jncrry ? To which,
the housefather replied; "Christmas
has come as a kind guest- never bet
ter, my brother ; all have chough and
all are merry,' The ncw'-conimcr now
exchanged the kiss of peace with every
mcuiDcr ol the latmly, and then the
stools were taken fom their lurkini'
places, and Ihu, polaznik, taking his
seat beside the hearth, was pledged
iitlt wine and r.tki to his heart's con
lent. "The domachm now took the
roasted carcass of the Chrisimas sheep,
and muttering a prayer, drew forth his
hand-jar, or sword-knife, and with
sonic dcxtctous blows cut it into more
manageable joints. He had need to be
a skillful swordsman, since to have
broken a rib would have brought some
calamity on the household. In place
of a table sacks were spread over the
straw-strewn floor, as on the preceding
night, and on these, liesidc some good
haunches of the ' pechive,' or Christ
mas roast, the house-mother set bacon,
potatoes, and the Christmas unleavened
bread. This a round flat cake with
a round hole in the centre, from which
spoke-like ornaments radiate towards
the circumference, so as to make it
look somewhat like a wheel. In the
round hole in the centre they placed
here a simple glass of wine, but in more
well-to-do Risano I saw small Christmas-trees,
hung with ribbons, tinsel,
and sweetmeats, stuck in the central
hole. Inside the cake was placed a
a coin which was to bring luck to
whoever got it with his portion. He
sides this 'chcznitza' or Christmas
bread-cake, the house-mother set on the
table a wooden bowl filled with corn,
and in this the domacliin set three wax
tapers lighted from the yule fire.
When they were getting low, he sopped
a small piece of the unleavened bread
in wine, and with this extinguished
the flame, afterwards religiously de
vouring the sodden mnrscl.
"Utir uttie lamiiy party the men
first, be it understood Jell upon the
Christmas sheep with the zest of meir
who had not tasted flesh for forty days.
When the first edge had been taken
ofT the appetite, the domacliin rose to
propose the toast of the day 'with all
the honors,' as they say. To witness,
however this Christmas feast at its
best, I may be allowed to transport the
reader awhile to one of the large house
communities in the mountains above
Pctrovatz, in Northwest Hosnia.
"There, in the middle ol dinner, the
house-father gets up, and in many
parts, in Montenegro, for instance, the
first toast is a religious one the
Nativity of Christ, 'the Patron Namc-
giver ot all house-lathers." This is
evidently only a Christian survival of
the practice of drinking to the divine
ancestor of the family, and it is observ
able that the wheel-shaped bread cake,
or 'kolatch,' is broken in honor of the
toast at the same time as the mead is
drunk a distinct memorial of a time
when it was ,set out for the ancestral
spirit. Holding out his 'potijer,' or
cup, a name used elsewhere to signify
the sacramental chalice, the domacliin
drinks 'to the fair honor of the holy
nativity of Christ, who thus miracul
ously came among us and made us
joyous, that we may long await Him in
health and leasttng, and that He mav
aid us and every Christian brother.'
The next toast is the 'Krsno line,' the
'name of the patron saint,' who again
represents the divine ancestor of pre
"In the Crivoscian and Hosnian
cottages the food must on no account
be cleared away after the Christinas
meal. The remains of every kind of
dish are left for three days on the sacks
which serve the place of table the
house spirits must be given time for
their repast and the straw is left
scattered over the earth floor of the
huts till 'Little Christmas,' or New
Year's Day, vvhich concludes the feast.
"In the villages above Pctrovatz.
and elsewhere, a field laborer wakes
the children of the household early in
the morning of 'Little Christinas Day,'
before dawn, when they and he together
clear the lloor ol the Christmas straw,
take the 'kolatch' cakes, and a rone.
and proceed with these to the thresh
ing-floor. Here they scatter the straw-
all around the pole to which the horses
who tread out the com arc to be teth
ered; fix a 'kolatch' cake, the central
hole ot which is ready to receive the
pole, on the top of it, and tie the rope
to it. I he children now take hold of
the rope and run round and round
over the straw, neighing, the husband
man driving them as if they were
horses. This goes on for about an
hour, till the children are tired and
leave off, when the rope is undone, the
'kolatch' removed, and all return to the
house. Next they go to the stall
where the oxen are sleeping, and the
husbandman fixes the 'kolatch' on the
horn of the 'eldest ox'; if he now
throws it olTit is of good omen to the
household, and the oxen, esiiecially,
will be strong and lusty. A bit of the'
'kolatch' cake is now broken off and
given to the oxen to eat, and the child
ren run to the husbandman, neighing,
and asking for oats to make them
strong; on which he gives them, too, a
bit ol the same bread-cake.
"It would be easy to add a variety
of suggestive customs and formulas to
this short account of the Christmas
rites as still practiced in the primitive
households of the Serbian branch of
our Aryan family; those, however, here
collected, may perhaps suffice to con
vey a correct idea of thw true character."
