Now, tho other gods ami goddesses on hearing of the ? lentil of Haider, who was a great favorite with them, pray? ed that out of the love they bore him lie might bo restored to life. Thus when this came to pass mistletoe, instead of being an cmhlcti of death, became the emblem of lovp and as such was given to the goddess of love to keep ami guard, while every one who passed linder the hough she held in her hand was ex? pected to salule her with a ten? der kiss.
