The custom of Uaster egg rolling Is
probably derived from the practice In
churches during the Middle Ages for
priests ami choristers to Join in a game
of catching the eggs which were thrown
from one to another each player being
exictted to catch
Children first assembled In the Presi
dents grounds for the purpose of rolling
their Ujster eggs down the erdant slopes
on Laster Monday 1S0J shortly after the
garden ot the Executive Mansion was
laid out The Only other place where
the custom Is still perpetuated so far
as can le ascertained la at the estate of
the Marquis of Hertfordshire In Eng

Eery boy doubtless can recall his ex
ploits In - picking eggs at this season nt
the year and can discourse learnedly on
the relative merits of a guinea and a leg
horn The game of picking eggs which
is as popular In England as In this coun
try consists in each boy holding in his

lather gently until one breaks This Is
the loser and becomes spoil of victor to
the owner of the stronger egg Nothing
Is more elating to one thoroughly Imbuid
with the spirit of the sport than a vic

ward during which time their children
buy themselves as many eggs as tliey
cari ami stain them with a red color in
memory of the blood of Christ Some
tinge them also with green and J ellow

sport consists as In this country In
striking the eggs one against another and
the egg that first breaks It won bj the
owner of the egg that struck It Imme
diately another egg Is pitted against the
winning egg and so they go on till the
last remaining egg wins all the others
Father Carmeli in his History of Cus

the following days iiard eggs painted of
different colors but principal red are
the ordinary food of the season In Italy
Spain and Provence says he where al
most eery ancient superstition Is retain

In a praer written by Pope Paul V
for the ue of England Ireland and
Scotland the following passage occurs
Mess O Lord we beseech thee this
th rrealure of eggs that It may become

Eggs wen- oldentl cheaper at this
season of the year in the reign of Ed
ward I of England than that of his pres
ent successor Judging from the follow
ing item In the accounts of E tstr Sun
day taken from the Roll of tho ex
penses of the household of IS Edw I
Tour hundred and a half of eggs 18
pence The purpose of the King In
ordering so man eggs on this tiiy was
to hue thm stained or covered with
gold leaf and distributed to the members
of the roval household
In Anglesey North Wales the children
go from houbo to house from Monday
until Saturday in Easter week announc
ing their presence by means of a clapper
so that the door may be opened to them
If no eggs be In tho houq the youngsters
are glad to receive compensating coppers

A Good Lesson for Good
It Is a lesson in economy Economy that spares
the purse but not through the curtailment of worth
We are glvir this week a convincing demonstra
tion of the peerla sness of Saks made Clothing An
object lesson tnat is more eloquent than words Because-
it banishes every prejudice that can exist
against tailoring ready for delivery That is what
Saks Clothlng is The highest degree of sartorial art
Recognized as such by Its legion of wearers admitted
ot course reluctantly by Its contemporaries
It is not like ready made Clothing Its production
In accomplished differently Consequently the tesult is
different It Is made BY US and exclusively for us
except for three or four other leading firms who want
to maintain our standard
Sum up in the most critical view and but one con
clusion Is possible that it is the FINEST CLOTHING
How easy for us to guarantee
How reasonable that we should multiply surely by
four times the Ciothing sclllnir of any other store
