Written for The Globe:
The mystery of mysteries Is life.
Birth, air and sea teem with Its my
riad forms: the year wanes and the
world's green mantle grows sere and
dead; individuals and generations of
men and animals pass and are gone,
bt out from its great Inexhaustible
reservoir the vital force continues to
How, recarpeting the desolate fields
and bringing into being new- forms
and new individuals as fast as the old
ones die. What and whence is this
marvelous thing called life?
Prom the first men have asked this
question, and have given to Its eluci
dation all of the ingenuity of discov
ery and all the power of intellect they
could command. By some it is be
lieved to be a special creation, each
time It appears, by a direct flat of the
Almighty, by some simple manifesta
tion, under fixed law, of the great
energy that animates and controls the
universe; by some, though ' attempts
to demonstrate it have proven always
In vain, that it was," and still may be,
spontaneously generated from matter.
Others believe that its original germ
fell from the earth from some other
body. Back from one hiding place to
mother, still more secret and remote,
It has beeji hunted by eager pursuers,
but in vain. The most prying curi
osity, the most patient Investigation,
are still baffled and eluded.
"Flower In the crannied wall
I pluck you out of the crannies;
Hold you here root and all in my hand
Little flower but if I could under
stand What you are root and all, and all in
all, ' -;:
I should know what God and man is."
Earlv in the history of men it was
oercelved that whatever power It was
that caused life it was the greatest
nower. the one to be propitiated, and
the phallic worship found in most an
cient races was a primitive attempt to
draw near to the sources or life by
defying what seemed to be its creative

began to see a symbol, and find a hope
of .renewed life for themselves, there
sprang up in many countries the oh1
servance of n spring festival, which
among us Christians is known as Eas-!
' According to the Century Diction
ary the name is derived from Eastre
-)r Ostara. the Anglo-Saxon Goddess
of 'Spring, to whom the fourth month.
nril was dedicated. In the early
tthurch, the ecclesiastical chronicles
?ay, there was no observance of festl
als. but Easter was adopted and
-hanged, partly from a pagan festival
md nartlv from the Jewish Passover,
'0 suit the peculiarities of the Chris
Man faith and the belief in the resur-
ection of Jesus. There was at first a
bitter controversy between the Chris
ians of Jewish and Gentile origin as
'o the time when Easter should be
celebrated. With those of Jewish an
tecedents the day of monLh was all
mportant, while all of the others lali
emphasis upon the day of the week
This led to confusion and dissension,
vnd the diversity was finally ended by
'he decision of the Roman Church
that Easter should fall on Sunday; it
was not, however, till after a long
-terlod that all discrepancies ceased.
The rule that now prevails is that
Enster day Is the first Sunday after
the fourteenth day of the calendar
moons, which happens on or next after
March 21. After 90.0 years a fresh dif
ference as to time of the festival be
tween Roman and English churches,
due, to the fact that the latter refused
to adopt the Gregorian Calendar. In
1752, however, this was done, and
Easter is now celebrated the world
over on the same day, except in the
Greek Church, where the old style is
adhered to. making it nearly two
weeks later.
Among many curious Easter ob
servances which have come down
from a remote past none Is more gen
eral than the use by children in their
play on Easter Monday of colored
eggs. It is of very ancient origin'.
TYUrtiLil 5
The Egyptian regarded tho egg as a
sacred emblem of the renovation of
life, and the Jews took it from them,
using it as a type of, their departure
from the land of Egypt, and It was al
ways on the table at the feast of the
Passover. In Persia presents of col
ored eggs were exchanged on their
New Year's day as an emblem of the
renewal of things. Just when their
use in the church began is not knowif,
but they were regarded as shadowing
forth the promise of Immortality, and
at first were all stained as a reminder
of the blood that was shed at the Cru
cifixion. In a roll of the Household
under Edward the First of England,
is found the following in the expense
account of Easter Sunday: "Four hun
dred and a half 'of eggs, eighteen
pence," surely a liberal supply at a low
rate, and in our present day would
cause the Nashville produce exchang
ers to emit divers scornful protests.
Mention of the game of breaking of
eggs is made by travelers at an early
date in Mesopotamia, and the custom
of rolling them has existed in Eng
land for many a generation. Few
children who play with eggs .on Easter
Monday have any idea of its signifi
cance, or from how far in the, past
the custom has come down. Very
many of the old usages have disap
peared, but there Is something pleas
ant in the sentiment that keeps up
few like the egg games of Easter Mon
day, April Fool's Day,' and Valentine's
Day, which maintain a walning exis
tence. :
The observance of Easter as the fes
tival of life renewed Is not likely to
fade away. It typifies a hope un
quenchable in the human breast of a
better life beyond,' and it teaches that
just as the vigorous young forest
springs from the decayed trunks of
ancestral fallen trees, and pushes as
piring roots Into sunlight, every hu
man life, feeding upon the past, trans
forming even its own discarded and
burled evil into wholesome susten
ance, may expand and grow upwad
into regions of the soul, where the
shadows never fall.
