- 'Ajuperatitloas to Flowers,
The Egyptians regarded the frail ane
mone as a symbol of sickness. The tha
gin-nut plant of Madagascar is believed
by the natives to be a divine plant, given
to be a test of the rightfulness or
wrongfulness of an accusation. Among
the flowers of ill-omen can be mentioned
the poppy, which ib regarded as the sym
bol of death the twin-sister ot sleep.
The marigold is excluded from fortunate
flowers, and is looked upon with suspi
cion. The crocus, the peasants of Aus
tria say, must be plucked only by Tiealthy
young girls and men, as it tends to draw
away strength. The four-leaved clover
has been given wonderful virtues,
yet the finder of it will have bad
luck. It is a Silesian superstition
that flowers must not be laid on the bed
of sick persons. No child, in West
phalia and Thuringia, is permitted to
wreathe itself in flowers, or it will die
soon: and in the East it is said that if
they are so used, such flowers will soon
die. The Germans say flowers must not
be laid on the mouth of a corpse, since
the dead man may chew them, which
would make him a monster one who
draws relatives after him. To dream of
white flowers prognosticates death. If
one throw a rose on a grave, it will
waste away. The sudden budding of
white rosebud is a sign of death
in the nearest house. The rosemary,
in many lands, is strewn on graves,
In Shakspeare it is said, "There's a rose
mary for you that 8 for remembrance.
In many lands rosemary is used as a di
viner of love affairs. In Austria the
saffron has an ill-omen, while in the East
it is an omen of good destiny to one on
whose grave it blooms. In Egypt the
rose was the emblem of silence; also
in Greece, where it indicates that se-
cresy in which love acligbts. J ne rose
also appears on Roman shields to indi
cate the silence of strategy. The Ara
bians say there is a garden of mystical
roses now lost and buried in the desert.
The Chinese plant roses over graves.
The Greeks bad a legend that the red
rose was changed from white by the
blood of Venus when she trod on its
thorn. The Turks claim it as a version
that it was changed to red by the blood
of Mohammed. In Germany there is a
superstition that if the rose is steeped in
water on Christmas eve, it confers the
power of divining the events of the
coming year. Another Greek legend is
that the rose sprung from the bath of
Aphrodite. In Germany it is said that
the rose unlocks the treasures concealed
in fairy castles. A white rose blooming
in autumn denotes an early death; if a
red, an early marriage. It . is said a red
rose will not bloom over a grave. In
Posen the "rose apple" is carried
by the country maiden in her bosom
to keep her lover true. In Germany
they throw rose leaves on tha fire for
good luck. ' Another curious snyinK in
Italy, France and Germany is "that
if a drop of one's blood be buried under
a rcc bush it will bring roty checks."
The Lotus is still eaten by the Bedouins.
The lily of the valley was referred to by
the Savior. The water lily bas been held
sacred in pant ages, and has been invest
ed by poets with significance. In Spain
the lily has been credited with powt-r to
restore those who IfXve been transform
ed into animal shapes. Many believe
that it is a cure for venomous liu s. 1 he
snow drop bas been regarded as
a sacred flower in France, because
it gives the first sign of return
ing nature by piercing the snow.
The life everlasting, is also a flower
given over to superstition. In
swabia, they believe, if pulU-d in a cer
tain time of the year, rolled in a white
cloth and worn against tha naked breast
it will be bullet-proof. A number of le
gends are eonneoiiJ -ah the strawberry.
Of the clover, it is said in the Tyrol, if
you put it ander your pillow jou will I
dream of yonr beloved. The foor !
leaved clover protects Jou from witcbe. '
lecially in the dark.. The violet has
reputation in the East; it is there con
nected with mystical religion., Mohamcd
loved the violet. In Germany it is used
as a cure for ague; it i ued
a 'a cosmetic. ; The primrose
is called the key flower, and refers to
opening hidden treasures. Tho aloe is
surrounded with sanctity in tho East; it
is planted on tombs. In the East it is
believed that the oloe blossoms once In a
century. The chamomie, ; vervain,
daisy an thistle, ore also regarded with
someveneratiop. The cactus, ' and all
night-blooming flowera, are much vener
ated in Mexico and Russia.
