.; v : v Agnes, . ;:
The Greek word agos, signifying
a matteic. of religious awe, gave the
adjective aggos, .meaning sacred
pure, and iC in turn, names the
tree whose twigs the Greek ma
trons strewed on their beds during
the festival of Demeter, which the
Romans called Agnus Castus. .
Incidentally, the Latin word for
lamb is agnus, and since this ani
mal was used for the sacred pur
pose of sacrifice, Agnes comes by
her .heritage of purity and sanctity
logically.
One of the first women to bear
the name of Agnes was the gentle
Roman maiden whose martyrdom
named the Church of St Agnese.
It Is said to have en built by
Constantino on the sifft where she
was put to the utmost proof and
retains an old mosaic picturing
her clad only in her flowing hair,
being dragged along by brutal sol
diers. Another ancient church
covers Vie catacomb where she
was Interred, and the story goes
that .while her relatives and pil
grims who came to pay their bom-
age were weeping there one day,

that by watching and fasting oa

cover ' their fate in marriage, by
praying nine times to the mooni
ana lasting mree eves in succes
eion, they could secure whom they
would. Keats, in his exquisite
poem, 'Tne Eve of St. Agnes,
iers to this superstition:
"They told -her how upon St Agnes'
eve.
Young virgins might have vis
ions of delight .
If ceremonies due they did aright:
As, supperless, to bed they most
retire,
And couch supine their beauties,

Nor look behind, nor sideways,
but require .

all that they desire!"

waa soon aroused and put 'on the

declared that when they got back

and of the Mayflower celebrations.

Interest in genealogy is meas
ured with mathematical precision
by the New England Historical
Genealogical society at its head
quarters here. This society has
the best genealogical library in the
country. Stocked with many valu
able old manuscripts - and rare
books, this library is a court of last
resort to which people hunting fam
ily records come from all over the
country, and even from abroad.
A Library of the eDad.
Because its library is so widely
and steadily used, the society con
siders it a reliable place to take
statistics on genealogy. Every
person wbo visits the room is re
quired to register at each visit and
every balf hour a count is taken
of the readers. These records are
kept year after year. They prove,
what is known hi a general way,
that ever since about 1845; when
Americans began to acquire wealth,
popular interest in genealogy has
been growing steadily,
At first the popular demand for
ancestors was restricted to the
very wealthy, but gradually less
affluent families went hunting for
themselves. The genealogical so
ciety, mentioned has a record of
some '800 family historians, of whom
about SO are professionals, and the
rest are amateurs interested mainly
In the history of their own families.
Of course this is not a complete
list of the persons who devote
their time to genealogy, and there
are many more who are interested
in it as a hobby or side-line.
The big fact which the average
American would like to prove re
garding his family past is that be
