My father grew worse and weaker daily, and", unknown to tho doctor, we got him to try Alhlophoros. Verysoon tlicre was an improvement, the pains al most immediately ceased, and there was no longer any cause to keep the doctor in ignorance "of what be was using. We told him it was Athlophoroslhat he was taking, and the doctor told him to continue its use, as it was what ho wanted, and so it proved, for he ha never been troubled with rheumatism since. J. AV.

The egg, symbol of unreveuled life, in all ages aud every country has been tbo subject of poetical niytbs and legends. In France and Germany the custom of offer ing eggs at tbe Easter festival is so old that its origin is lost. Tbe Russians and Jens also give Easter eggs, while the Persians pre sent tbem at tlio beginning of tho now year. With tbe Romans tbe year commenced at Ea;.ter, ns it did among the Franks under tbo Capets. Mutual presents were- bestowed, and as the egg is tbe emblem of tho be ginning of nil tilings, nothing better could be found as an offering. Tbo symbolic meaning is not to be misunderstood. Eggs ore tho germs of fecundity and abundance, and wo wish our friends all tho blessings contained witbbi its slender shell when wo otter the gift, whoso fragility represents that of happi ness bcro below. In some remote districts of Franco it is still 0'istomnry for tho priest of tbo parish to go round to ouch bouso at Easter mid bestow- on it bis blessing. In return ho receives eggs bolb f lain and painted. . The idea of lubricating imitation eggs in sugar nnd pasteboard is of comparatively lnod !i origin, and ire? brought into life by tho genius of trade. In botU Franco and Germany their manufacture is au important source of truflle. In Paris, tbat city which Bcran.?er says is "full of gold nnd misery," tho splendors of tbo Easter eggs are almost fabulous. Once a Parisian bouso furnished, as a present for tbo infanta of fcpain, an egg which cost nearly Cl.tOU It was n wonder in its way. It woo formed of whi to enamel; on its insido was engraved tbo gospel for Easter day; and by nil ingenious mechanism a little bird, lodged in this pretty cage, sang twelve airs from as many fasbionablo operas. Tbo designs for Easter eggs in Paris arc nioro numerous than tho flowers of tho field, and more nnin.no nnd beautiful than the dremi'.H of n barbaric king. Eggs, eggs every where eggs unbroken, eggs opened und re vealing wonders within, eggs transported on tho shoulders of fairies, eggs -docoratcd in every conceivablo stylo and made of every conceivable material. . 41 fffe( OSTERA, GODDESS OF SPR:SQ. When ICaster Cornea. Easter Sunday conies this year on April 10. "Easter ihiy is always the first Sunday after the full moon which happens upon or next after March 21, nnd if tho full moon happens upon a Sunday, Easter day is tbo bmidav after. iuisistno ruiing which regulutes leister, called by tho church the festival of the resur rection originally tho festival of tho Pass over the iKusovcr including tho wuole inter val between the crucifixion of Christ nnd his resurrection. Originally there was a feast of tbo Lentonic goddess Ostera, the goddess of spring (whence comes our Anelo-h-axon Eisteil. The festival was introduced by riparatonr fasting, homo fasted one day, Mmo two, some forty hours, that is the forty hours dur ing which Jesus was supposed to have lieen a tenant of the tomb. Later tho time was ex tended to forty days, in imitation of Christ's fntof forty days in the Wilderness. Hence camo Lent, which, in its present form, em bracing a pertl of forty days, cannot be traced back beyond the end of the sistli cen tury.

From a marvelous and most interesting book, called "The Spirit of tho New Testa ment," wo tako tho following description o tbo first Eastor tbut dawned upon tho world: That a strnngo power waa at work, even in the darkness of Calvary, is shown by tbo events which caused even a superstitious feel ing to seizo on many of .tlio Jows. Tho Homun centurion hhnself had been strongly impressed with tho ttrange man whoso ma jefity of spirit was something more than philosophers bad ever realized. And there was a reactionary sentiment among tho crowd, who returned homo, whispering to each other willi a feeling of self reproach, Only tho priests failed to interpret this voice- loss language. They wero satisfied. Hut for thorn tho future finished what tho present had begun. Failure and defeat aro written on tbo lives of thoso who mako themselves strongholds of opposition to a work conse crated to humanity on which nlono is or can lie inscribed tho word victor.y. Judns luul died by bis own hand; Herod's ambition was frustrated by exile; Pilato was disgrnewl aud bunisbcd;Caii)has was removed from tho im perial ofileo of high priest, nnd Annas was finally murdered by a mob in Jerusalem. And many of those who insulted nnd soutrht to humiliate Jesus, ovon in bis depth of afflic tion, suffered themselves at tho bauds of tho very power into which they bad engorly de livered biin. Moreover, oven tho cross strango to relate, had been tho ancient and sacred symbol of life throughout all nations. There B au avenging angel which follows men in the results of their own evil deeds, Tho Sabbath of tho Passover, the great festival, was at band, and tho thoughts of thoso at Jerusalem wero speedily turned to other themes, and tbo events connected with their own lives. Before it dawned tbe body of Jesus, ascertflinc J to bo lifeless by tho Uoman guard, was delivered by tho con sent of Pilato to Joseph of Arimathea. This man. who was not only wealthy, but a inonv bur of tho sanhedrim, bad never given bis consent to tho extreme measures of tbo coun cil, and was influenced by tho great band of guardian spirits which had surrounded Jesus to dovote a tomb, hewn in tho rock, to tlio burial of tbo body. It was new, it bad never Leon sullied by the influence of corruption, and it was necessary for tho work to Do out wrought within its still and silent chamber. Wrapped in a clean cloth, and surrounded with fragrant spices, tho body of tho crucified was speedily deposited within tbo rock and tbo mouth was dosed by a well fitting stone. Two women, who bad shed many bitter tears, found a momentary consolation in witnessing that at all events the burial of the man they loved had received some honor The site of the true place of burial u, of course, entirely unknown, but over the sup posed spot now rises tbe Church of tho Holy Ccpulcbre. Some of the priests went to Pilate and had a private interview with him. "We request,'': said they, "that a guard shall be sent down to this tomb until an inter val of three days has elapsed, for if you re member, that imposter said he should rise again, and in order to prevent his followers deceiving the people and stealing tho body, which would be more disastrous than ever. we wish to have the place watched." Pilato rejoined that they could do just as they pleased; so, accompanied by some sol diers, these keen willed persons, ready for all emcrg'encies, and confident to regulate tho universe itself, repaired to Joseph's garden, sealed tlio stone at tho mouth of tbo tomb, and appointed a watch to remain by its side. Weuro well n ware that the modern school of critics bos expended endless energy upon tho slight apparent discrepancies which they represent, completely invalidate the evi dence in behalf of what is popularly known as "the resurrection." Wo may boldly sny, that if tbe real conditions under which the ancient records wero written were known, they would create astonishment at tbo accu racy with which tho main facts are told. The discrepancies of detail are precisely such ns occur every day in tho relation of any par ticular fact. Some will omit this detail; oth ers will add that. A: may be correct, olid tho central reality stands out clear in tbo midst. And now wo como to tho consummation of tho mission of Christ. His birth was spirit ual, and his organization revealed its higher law ; all through his lifo he had been mani festing the gifts and powers of a spiritual type of humanity, and dealing on nil sides death blows to materialism in every form; and in bis death, so far as ib could be death, was per mitted in order that it should illustrate, for nil time, tho sublime fact that the spiritual man can escupo tho disintegration of the body. After such a fearful ordeal as crucifixion, t'ao spirit of Jesus bad recoiled from tho earth sphere, and passed intp the world unseen of mortal eyes, but his body, wonderfully spirit ualized, both in its original nature and by waves of triumphant suffering, had vital elements in every parliclo, and in tbe dnrk 1U'E3 nnd still reposo of the intended grave, it liy, not as a corpse, but as a deposit of phy sical elements sufficient to render tho spirit of CUrist visible on bis return. What was no longer necessary to him was dissipated in tho atmosphere, m:d tho remainder absorbed in bia spiritualized body. It was the demonstra tion of a higher hiwof immortality; and it had never before been revealed to tbo world. It was this idea of spiritual perfection which Christ sought in vain to impress on bi-i au diences; it explains all bis words; it dissolves every mystery ; it illuminates bis whole life. Tho knowledge of a lifo after death bad been understood on earth long before, and accepted by its greatest thinkers. Hermes Trismegistus, Plato, Socrates, Cicero, bad ail taught it, and somo of theni knew it was a fact. It was believed in ancient Egypt, in Persia, ia India, among tbo old order of tbo Druids, and the Pharisees themselves. Tho first thing the devoted women saw who loved Jesus with all the affection that woman hood bestows on fino nnd strong manhood, and who believed in bmi from f!it t? In' was the vision of an angel. They bad no need to roll away the stono to convey the -spices within, lor it was done. First one of IbcM beautiful Rpirits was seen; then two. And they were a sign ofan caster then and ono to come. The one seen first spoke, nnd said, "Do not fear. You seek Jesus, the Nazarene, who has been crucilled; be has risen; ho is not here; look witlunr They knew tho work, and they knew all its events, nna eveiy stage or it Well might Jesus t,ay he was surrounded by a legion of angels. Go nnd tell tho others that ho is going into Galilee, where ho will bo seen as ha foretold. Do yon not remember tbat ho spoke to you of all these tliingsf' Fear of this umiMial fight fell upon all. Tho iowcr was so creat that the guard bad fallen down in n sort of trance, and tha Erst Impulse ot tho women was to fly from tho 6por Mary Magdalene, however, remained, and was still iu tears, beeauso she saw tha cave was cmpt3", and could not discover the body.

"I ascend unto my Father and j our Father, and my God and voiiruod. On tho apiioaronco oi some ot his old com panions, wlio could hardly believe the facts, ho met them with a word f welcome. "Do not fear," said ho; "tell the others, and they shall see mem ualileo." The difficulty was to obtain credence for an account so strango, and until they had seen him themselves there was a natural feeling of skepticism among many of them. Aftor Potor had hhnself investigated tho ompty gravo in tlio rock be returned homo more lull of astonishment thau of tbo satisfaction aris ing from joy. Meanwhile tbo soldiers who hnd been placed on guard recovered, and finding the rock tomb open, and no one there, or anywhere present, rocallod their strange vision of nnsrcllo presences. Fearful of tho conse quences to themselves, they repaired to cor tniu members of tho sanhedrim, under whose orders tliey hud acted, und told the literal truth. An immediate council was bold, and it wus resolved to husu up the stor-, both for tbo sake of tho men and their own priestly interests. Any publicity would only have stirred up a renewed interest in tbo martyred Nazarene.
