THE CHILDREN'S FRIEND.
"a bcxdlk or TOVi ns had rtnco ox nis BACK, AND KB LOOKED LIKE A PEDDLER JUBT OPEKIKO UIS BACK." THE ORIGIN OF CHRISTMAS. The ISIh of Oaeember Vh Originally the Roman ffatarnalle. The celebration of Christmas M the birthday of Jesus la nulvenuil among Chriatlana of every sect, and aa such It la regarded throughout Christendom aa the aweeteet, bolloet of all holiday. And with the long mooted question, la Deo. 20 the anniversary of ChrUt's blrthf we have nothing to do. For It matters nothing whether It was on this particular dale that the Christ Child first lay to Bethlehem's lowly manger. This U the day that has been ac cepted and will be celebrated to the end of time. It- will be of interest to most readers, however, to note that It was not until the Third or Fourth century that the present date wna agreed upon, and that Jan. "1, Jan. 0, March 20 and Sent. 20 were variously observed during the earlier centuries by various bodies of Christians. The fixing of the date seems to have been accomplished by Julius I. who presided as popo or bishop of Koine from UU7 to ooi A. li. Christmas Is not alono among Chris tian holidays In being the follower of somewhat similar holiday among the pa gans. In Rome It was called the Satur . naliii. And the observance of the winU-r feast, now Christmas, was not confined to the Komans. The holiday appears to have been kept by the Scandinavians, the Persians and toe Phoenicians, anil per haps by many other people. All these na tions worshiped the sun, under one form or other, aa the giver of all life. Each gave the deity a dilferent name. At Rome he was worshiped under one of the characters attributed to Saturn, the father of the ods among the Scandinavians as Odin, or worten, t.ne turner or Tiior; witn tne vet- iansos Mithras, probably the same as the Irish Mlthr, and with the rtiajniciaiia Lis name was Baal or Bel. All these nations chose about the same date for this fesst. Thta is supposed to have been caused by the feelings of (le . light cxiieritiiiced shortly after Deo. 21, be cause the days then begin to lengthen Then the sun begins his upward conrso, And spring and summer are approaching. For somewhat similar reasons the pagans of old hold a great midsummer feast at or about June 21, ' The midwinter festival of the Sottir- . nalla was observed for several days in the most unrestrained manner; every body feasted and work was quite sus pended. Kven the slaves were allowed complete liberty for the time lining. Laurels and evergreens were everywhere displayed, the samo as now, and gifts were leWhauged, and there were especial greet ings (or the season. lit the north these rejoicings were carried on iu some what ruder fashion, but were en tesvd Into with not less hearty enthusIiiKin. Fires were everywhere kin dled, both indoors and out, in honor of 'Odin and Thor; tho Druids gathered the 'sacred mistletoe, and both men and cattle . were sacrificed to the savage divinities. The ancient Persians also burned immense bonfires at this season, and between them and the Druids of western Europe some sort of relationship existed. In the later days of the Roman emplro the feast of the Saturnalia deteriorated into' a gross debauch so gross, indeed, that few historians have cared to defile their pages with its dotnllu. It was for the purpose of counteracting the evil influences of the Saturnalia, to the celebration of which the young of both pexes were very prone, that the early Christian teachers In Rome sought to -adapt tho rites of heathen rejoicing aud render them mibservleut, instead of an .tARonlstic, to tho cause of religion. Cer-tf-niu forms of amusement wero forbidden And others not so gross were substituted, but it was a long timo before the people and the clergy were of one mind regard ing the olwervances of Christmas. . In Britain there were other .modifica tions. To the modified Saturnalia were 'added first some of the Druldlcal rites and superstitious, and, after the arrival of the Saxons, some of the ceremonies of the ancient Germans and Scandinavians. Of these were the burning of the Yule log and the superstitions regarding the mis tletoe bouh. ' In Eimliitul the burning of the Yule log takes place Christmas eve. In feudal . times the bringing In of the jHinderous ihlock and burning it on the wide hearth il the great chimney of tho baronial hall was observed with the greatest rejoicing". ITbo dragging of the Yule from the forest to thocastlu was an elaborate ceremony t itself, and as it passed, every wayfarer raised bis bat, for well he knew that lis llanie would light up scenes of feasting mid foridveness of old wrongs, and that all would be welcome, i The following quaint ditty, apropos of the Yule, is siipimeed to have beeu written during the reign of J lenry VI: ' Welcome be thou, heavenly Kins; y W, taint, burn on ihbt morning; ; Weiouftie, ler whom we shall sing; Vt'elwime Yule- VOIcnme be ye, Kteplicn and John!

What tbe oaauo of paralysis, tliia groat destroyer of health and life, is, do physician or icientist bns yet been able to kcouratoly dotormiDO to tbe satisfaction of mankind, and it is ttamllT true that this disoase bo coiuinir every duy more prevalent Medical men ear that it is brought on sometime from ono cause and sometimes from another! but tbe fact that casea of paralysis are of al most daily occurrence at the Hot Serines and other resorts for the treatment of blood and skin diseases, would seek to indicate that the con tinued use of strong mineral poisons is a creat factor in producing this much dreaded soourtfe. This, of course, would proonDiy not nappen, provided these strong mineral mix tures were always administered under tbe . eye of a competent physician. But when compounded into nostrums tbe consumer does not know bow large a dose of these, poisons be is taking and consequently runs tbe risk of being liable to all tbe dangers of an unwise use of mineral medicines' Persona, therefore, pufjfering from blood poison or skin troubles, wbo do not consult physicians, should be careful of these corrosive medicines. Swift's Specific, which is endorsed by the best people in the United States and leading physicians, offers to all nn infallible, harmless, regetable remedy for this class of diseases.
