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
' 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;

Tbf Great Destroyer.
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.

by the best people in the United
States and leading physicians, offers
