Which One Vas It That
TO what kind of flower did Jesus
refer wihen, in the sermon on the
mount, he spoke of the "lilies of
the field," which, though they neither
toiled nor spun, outdid king Solomon in
the heautv of their raiment?
It has been (popularly supposed that
the lily of the valley was the one meant.
That such nvas the case, however, seems
very unlikely if only for the reason
that this plant does not grow in fields.
It is peculiarly an inhabitant of ca-re-fullv
cultivated pardens, producins' its
little bell-like blossoms in shady corners.
Calla Not a Lily.
Xofc at all improbable does it seem that
Jesus had in mind the calla lily, which,
having originated in Ethiopia, was ia-milia-rlv
known in Palestine at the time
when the Savior lived. The Egyptians
used the roots of the plant, which is
verv prolific, as a .table vegetable. These
roots look somewhat like Irish potatoes,
and in swanps the calla grows so thickly
that the yield of single flooded acres is
Botanically speaking, however, the
calla is not a lily. Tulips are true
lilies, and so likewise are the leek, the
garlic and the asparagus. But the calla
is an "arum," and is. related to the jack-in-the-purpit,
as well as to the "ele
phant's car" plant commonly grown as
an ornamental. One notices that the
huge leaf .is not unlike that of the ele
Lilies have always had sacred associa
tions. Away back in. the dim ages of
the past, when the pyramids were build
ing, the Egyptian prfests chose the lotus
(a onember of the lily tfamily) as the
symbolic flower of their religion. It
was regarded as an emblem of the ile,
symbolizing the creation of the world
from the waters. In India Buddha is
fabled io have made 2iis entrance into

The lilies that appear in the paint

are not callas. They are of the fami
liar Easter lily type, and are easily rec
ognizable as the iladonna, or Annuncia
tion lily the latter name being given
to them because of the belief that the
angel of the Annunciation appeared to
the Virgin Mary on a certain wonderful
occasion with these lilies in his hands.
This kind of lilv, sometimes called
St. Joseph's lily, "was widely cultivated
in Europe in early historic times. It

of block s3Tstem operation. Under this
system the dispitcher never issues an

that station it must receive another or-

The Xorthern Pacific has found that
it can move its trains over the road in

Once the interstate commerce commis

recommend to congress that a law be en
acted requiring tae railroads to equip
their service with such appliances. This
will be fought to the bitter end, but
finally congress will adopt it, then the
railroads will fight it cut in the courts,
and after that will comply with the law
as graciously as defeat is able to do.
