St. Valentine's Anniversary Is
Celebrated Today.
Snppoaed Origin of the Custom of
Giving: Presente Febrosrr 14—
Oltferont Stylee of Valentino
Cards Appeal to Different Classes
of Humanity—A Few Things Seen
and Heard In Seattle Stores.
THIS Is Bt. Valentine's day-the day
when all lovers protest anew their
vows of fidelity. It is merely A
custom, and It Is a noticeable fact
that the observation of this day,
like Halloween, Is dropping out of vogue
more and more every year. There was a
time In the colonial days, in deyd even
earlier than that, when this oay was
celebrated with all due reverence to St.
Valentine; but In these modern days It Is
rapidly dropping out of style.
In other days, between New Year's and
February 14, it was the duty of a'l young
men and women to make favors for their
sweethearts. If ue good St. Valentine
could compare his work then with the
majority of the presents given nowadays
he would presumably be much disappoint
ed. The holiday Is still observed in a gen
eral way. Young women entreat the mir
ror and the mystic bowl to reveal the
likeness of their best beloved, as they
do on Halloween. The holly and mistle
toe reign supreme at all valentine enter
tainments. But now, when the art of
printing, lithographing and manufactur
ing ingenious devices has resolved itself
down to a question of a little paper, a
little senseless, vapid rhyme on paper,
and almost no expense on the pafFof the
giver, 8t Valentine's day Is scarcely con
sidered. In this city vendors of valentine
favors are reducing their stocks year by
-•*. ->*.
GT. VALENTINE, as nearly as may be
learned bv the world's historians, was
a bishop supposed to have been beheaded
at Home In the rejen of the Emperor
Claudius. It is said he was a man full of
love .»nd charity toward hla fellows, and
that the custom of choosing valentines
took its rise from his admirable virtues.
Other historians derive the feast of St.
Valentine from the fact that a number of
birds select their mates this day. hence
the human race attempts to emulate the
example set by the feathered kingdom.
Another authority says that it arose from
the feast of Lupercttlla, In ancient Rome.
In February, at which time the names of
young women were placed In a box and
selected by young men by chance Later
the form was cuanged and an equal num
ber of young women and young men's
names were placed In the l»ox and chosen,
and the couples were called one another's
valentines. Kach drawer also made his
partner a small present of some kind.
In lAter days, however, it became a
question of iove. A young man made his
sweetheart a present of lanes. Jewelry or
garters, and If he was fortunate enough
to stand highest in the young woman's
affection, she also presented him with a
present of a similar nature. Still later thn
custom developed Into presents of one
another's handiwork In ths colonial days
of this country favors wero made ot paper
and ribbon, cunningly contrived Into var
ious patterns by the giver, those of hearts
and curpida being most common. At the
present time the situation is a little hard
to figure out. Valentine presents signify
ing hate and malice as well as love and
reverence are common enough. Take a
few Instances:
THKRK Is the schoolboy or schoolgirl.
* aged say from 7 to 14. This piece of
humanity naturally hates the teacher and
takes the greatest pleasure in sending
horrible colored woodcuts with a slander
ous verse inscribed beneath. School
teachers may consider themselves
lucky if they are afflicted with less than
a dosen of theso misdirected epistles And
still it is only In keeping with the natural
hatred the youthful heart has tor its super
iors in authority. They send the atrocious
missive and imagine they are doing some
thing clever thereby. They little know
that the teacher expects the cart aturea
and spends less time looking them over
than the senders do iu preparing them
No class of humanity Is so deluged with
such things at valentine time as the
school teacher.
To the youthful mind no time In the
year offers such an opportunity of grst
i ify;ng malicious hatred. It may be a oru
' panion. a alster, a brother, a relative. I:
[ matters not. the hideous <.trds, valued at

tell the sender except by the handwriting
: and this is always carefully disguised
