'.BAKER i CO., DorcWcr, Kass, A Notion That One liay Id KeTen Mutt Be Bad Some of the Things to Avoid on Friday Other Belter It a Lucky Day. A belief in the ill luck of certain days of the Year existed very early in the history of the world. The earliest nations have left records of such beliefs. Classical authors abound in allusions to these days, which were marked in old Itoman calendars by a black cross. From being few in number during the year, they increased until the path of the eunerstitious was beset with minute direc tions as to what must be done this day, what was to be avoided on that dav. or what was fatal on certain black days of the year. At some unknown time during the middle ages there grew up a notion that one day of the week in particular was to be given a bad character, by reason of which any important undertakings, such as journeys, weddings, business enterprises, etc., were certain to succeed badly if undertaken on this day, known in our calendar as Friday. No su- perstit.on has probably affected so many people as this. To this day thousands firmly believe in tne ill luck of any Friday under taking. Persons without superstition on any other point will resolutely adhere to their belief as to this particular, and quietly avoid rriday undertakings. There seems to be no question that this superstition is entirelv Christian in its origin, and has particular reference to Friday as the day Christ suffered on the cross. It became a custom, moreover, to aser.be other biblical events of a sinister nature to that day, and certain manuscripts of an interesting kind exist in European libraries, recapitulating these unfortunate happenings, assigning them to Friday, aud prescribing increased penance or abstinence on that day. PROBABLE SOURCE OT TITE BEUE. It is probable that the source of these as sertions concerning Friday was the Jewish Talmud and other Jewish writings. These make similar statements regarding these early events in the history of man. The fathers of the church iteiretuated the legends, and monkish copyists transmitted them to posterity. U his unlucky character still clings to Fri day in most Christian lands it is curious that it should also bo true among tho Brah mins ot India. It is the Mohammedan Sun day, and is not therefore an uniucky day with Mosiems. It seems to have been a luckv one to t he ain'estors of the Brahmins, for it is reconti that tiie Mogul Emperor Aunurg zebesaid: "Oh! that my death may happen on I'rid:iy. for b.ssed is he whs dieth on that day!" The things to be avoided on Friday are not so generally agrmi upoa as tho character of the day. it most European countries mar riages consummated on tnis day of the week are sure to be unhavmy ones, and are rare; but Germany and Scotland are exceptions, it being tnere considered a lucky day to wed. In Lancashire, England, it is even thought a bad day to win a bride, and the swain who goes courting on that day is apt to receive rough treatment from other swains. Some times he is treated to acharivari, or serenade, with tin pans, horns, etc, until he pays a money tone it. Journeys were rarely undertaken on Friday during the last century in many European countries, i ney were sure to be uniortunate in tueir termination, according to the superstitious. This phase of Friday's unpopularity par ticularly affected sailors and tishermen. That it is far from extinct even today appears from many instances of the unwillingness of sailors to sail on tnis day. In very many places tho uailsand hair were never cut on Fndav. but in Holland it was believed tha you would never have the toothache if you trimmed the nails on that day. A work published m England in IbSl says this was tuen deemed an unpropitious day for bleeding.physickmg or for a journey. An old adage says, "Sneeza on triday, give a gift." it was also disastrous to sing on this dav. "Smg on Fridav, weep on Sun day." The ill luck of the day was some times, however, changed to good fortune. It is deemed an excellent time, in the Dortb of England, to put on new clothes for the first time, English milkmaids thought Friday dreams unusually ominons. Many persons reverse the rule, and declare that this is to them a lucky day. Dickens said that it was fortunate for his undertak ings, most of which were successful when begun or ended on Friday. It has been claimed as a lucky day for America Columbus discovered land on that day, the Pilgrims landed on the same day, and Washington was born on Friday. It is only in late years that a custom smacking somewhat of superstition has been changed, that of executions on Friday. New York took the lead in this respect, but it is still hangman's day in too many states. The prejudice against Friday is, of course, in tensified in the case of Good Friday. Until quite recently no blacksmith in the north of England would drive a nail on this the an niversary of tho crucifixion. No edged tool was used in Yorkshire, nor was it anything but unlucky to wash clothes on that day. It is alleged that a woman was hanging out washed clothes as Christ passed by on his way to Calvary. She flirted the clothes in his face, and Christ not only declared her ac cursed, but also pronounced curse on any one who should choose this day for a similar task. In one place, it is asserted that the clothes washed tins day would be spotted with blood. Many shoemakers would abstain from work on this day because of a similar curse pro nounced on the Jew, Cartaphilus. In Devonshire, it was thought a good day to plant crops, and m other places to com mence weaning children. Eggs laid on triday will, it is said, never decay, and will, if eaten, cure the col In north Germany, it was said that if it rained on Good Friday, the turf would be parched up three times that year. An elder bush bung up in the bouse on that day would preserve the dwelling from danger of lightning. It was also said that caterpillars would increase if the garden was visited on that day. Jiy entermg the church, however, and quitting it before toe blessing. any one could obtain the power of seeing witches, and so avoid them. Portuguese sailors have a custom of dress ing their ship in mourning on this day, and of scourging aud hanging an effigy of Judas at the yard arm. F. IS. B&ttett in St Louis Globe-Democrat. HER LIFE.

A young husband wastes all the years of his early married life in a hard and at times vain endeavor to keep his ambitious young wife in the same social status or "set' which he married her. The years that should bo the gathering yeaiu of their life, when the home should be secured and the basis laid fdt a competence that may supply the needs of a growing family, these are the years usually spent in an exhaustive attempt to keep up the social follies and "fads" of the day. There follow discontent and irritability, for, say what they may, it takes more than the usual state of grace attained by men to keep them saintly in temper when they are over their ears in debt Then follow troubles innumerable, and we are told by those who ought to know that marriage is a failure. The man. true to his hereditary instincts, says: "It's tho woman r and the woman keeps up her tra ditional reputation for being a perpetual con tradiction by retorting: "It's the man." It is certainly a strong argument in favor of the institution that there are men brave enough to answer the popular conundrum by saying: "Ask my wife," and women confi dent enough to reply: "Ask my husband." It does not seem to have entered the minds of those who argue that marriage is a failure that if it is a failure there is one palpable reason for it, viz: that it is because the men or women are failures. Certainly there are some economic reasons that may enter into this problem A young man whoso love has not run away with his mathematics can easily see that marriage would be a disas trous failure for him if he should marry youncr woman who anuuauy costs her fat nor more than he himself can earn in a whole year. Tne youn; man of today who is ambitious to attain the moans of his highest development, who wishes to make the best of his powers for bimsoir and the world, seldom marries uutii that aim is assured. For Cupid is not. so often blind as the ptet and the novelist would have us believe. In fact, he is becoming an exjwrt accountant. lie knows that the mod ern Psyche dweiis in a nouse owned by a landlord or a landlady. He knows, unfortu nately, that sbe lives upon sugar aud pota toes and beefsteak instead of tha nectar of roses, and as for her robes sbe is certainly not clothed with modesty or with a garment More simplicity in toe home life, less strain ing after social effects, more living on the part of young married people for each other, rather than the demands of society, and es pecially tne elevation of the home above the dictum of society, would at least go far to ward solving the popular conundrum.

Bat.timobb. Md., Jan. 30, 188T. I have been a sufferer for six years with catarrh, ulcerated sore throat and rheu matism of the chest, from blood poison.

There is trouble among the colored folks down in the Twenty -eighth district, says The Americns iOa.1 Republican. A young buck fell in love with a damsel and asked permis sion to marry ber, but was given the cold shoulder by the gin's father. Xothing daunted, he made arrangements to run away with her, but before the knot could be tied the old man apeared upon the scene with a shotgun and fluslied the whole cover bride. bridegroom, parson, attendants and all. He then took the bride-to-be home and tied her up in his cabin, after which he loaded his shotgun with buckshot and barred the door. and swears that he will break up that picnic at any cost At last account the would be benedict hod gone oil to summon a posse of bis friends to assist him in whaling the old man into submission and to carry the girl off by force.
