The Easter Hat as a Life Preserver
Whlls service was being held st on of
the churches an organ pipe fell on the
head of a worshiper, but a bonnet which
he was wnnrlng probably saved her life.
Scntcd one day near the orjtan,. ...
With her henil devoutly bowed.
An or (tun pipe foil on her
With t noise both sharp and loud.
It woke up the cnngroKntlon,
And they feared she had tnlten harm,
Hut the pipe bud struck on her bonnet,
Which protected her like a charm.
It prevented ell pain and headache,
Kor It was both big end soft.
And the pipe had no power to hnrm her
That fell from the organ loft.
Men havo sought the reason vainly
Why our sex wear turbnns large,
With velvet and fur o'erlonded,
And they've grumbled at the charge, '
It may be that death's bright angel
Has spared one life Just to show
That the saints approve In heaven
Of the hate on earth below.

EASTER EGGS ORIGINATED
IN A QUEEN'S COURTSHIP
By MINERVA SPENCER HANDY.
ryTIIEN Marguerite of Austria
l I wits In her youth nnd beau
rr ty she made a pilgrimage
to the south of France to
visit the shrlue of her favorite saint
Some say it was to pray for a young
and handsome husband. If so, her pa
tron saint kindly grunted the prayer
In advance of the petition. On her way
she stopped to rest for a lew days at
Uourg, a village on the edge of a deep
forest and at the foci of the majestic
On Easter Monday the people for
miles around met to engage In the cus
tomary Enster games. The young re
gent of the Netherlands from ber place
beside the chatelaine of the castle en-
Joyed the scene hugely. It was very
Interesting to watch the older men
shooting at targets and casks of wine,
the winner being allowed to put his
lips to the cask nnd drink his fill. But
when the young couples began to gath
er for the most exciting event of the
day then the princess grew enthusias
tic, for, you remember, she was young
and fair, nnd even queens dream
drenms of hnndsnine, loving partners.
The moment arrived foy the contest
One hundred eggs were scuttered over
the ground. A young mnn nnd a maid
en began the figure. While the on
lookers laughed it was a serious affair
for the dancers. The couple that could
skip over the eggs, glide between them,
twirl about them in all the varied gyra
tions of the dunce, without breaking or
cracking nn egg might mnrry each oth
er in spite of the opposition of their
parents. Each couple was allowed
three trials, and, the dance being suc
cessfully concluded, none dared oppose
While the merrymaking was at Its
height the sound of a hunter's horn
rang through the forest Soon appear
ed a company of horsemen in such
brllllnnt uniforms that the simple
peasants stopped In ' their dance to
gaze nnd wonder whom they might be.
At their bend rodo a beautiful youth.
dressed as only the nobles of the time
dared dress. lie sprang from bis
horse, bent a graceful kneo to the
chatelaine of the castle and requested
her hospitality. Of course the hostess
granted It at once, for this wrb Phlll
bert, tho handsome Duke of Savoy.
The dance, which the coming of the
duke hnd interrupted; was now resum
ed with grenter mWrimeut than ever.
After watching tho dancers Margue
rlto In Jest said, "I would thnt I were
one of those simple peasants and
might try the dance."
I'hllibert bowed low before the fair
regent and said, "Madame, will you
permit me to be your partner In the
dance that Is going on before usT
This was equivalent to an offer of
marriage, and, hcnrlng it, the crowd
became wild with enthusiasm. Cries
of "Austrln!" and "Savoy I" rang
through the air, and cheer followed
cheer. Marguerite graciously ac
quiesced, and tho handsome pair took
their place in the dance. A serious
task was before them. They must
dnnce around and around eggs, be
tween eggs, without breaking any. But
members of the royal families were
accustomed to the dance. The feet of
the royal lady were as light as thistle
down, whllo those of tho bandsomo
knight were graceful In the extreme.
When the danco ended not a single
egg had been touched.
Lore In those days was not long
In kindling. When the duke gnzed Into
the sparkling eyes and upon the glow
ing cheek of his partner In tho egg
dance be knew that the custom of the
country wasn't going to be broken.
And so It proved.
One year from tho day tho two were
married. Their guests were given sou
venirs of gold nnd silver eggs tilled
with spices which they called Knster
eggs. This cuHtom was continued on
each anniversary In memory of that
happy day In the forest when with
beating hearts they together tripped
tho measures of tho egg dunce. t
EA8TER, DAY OF UNIVER
This Is the dny, my brethren,
of universal joy throughout the
Chrlstiau world. Wo no longer
behold our altars covered wltb
badges of mourning to commem
orate the passion, crucifixion and
death of our Saviour. They ore
decked In gleaming white to cel
ebrate his glorious resurrection.
No longer does the "Htubat Mu
ter" or the "Miserere" or the
"l.umciitntlons," those plaintive
notes of the church, resound In
our temples. The "(Jlorla In Ex
celsls," with frequent nllelulns,
greets our euri once more. No
more do penitent multitudes
Ntrlkn their breiists In nngtilsh of
hea ii and follow their sulTerlng J
lli'iloeincr as he bears Ills cross
to Calvary, but lu spirit we ice
.Mary Magdalene nnd tho other
Marys, with the apostles, hasten

The Easter girl will wear a tiny
bunch of pottles very much on the or
der of a man's boiiloimlero pinned on
the lapel of bur coat. These flowers
will be madt of ribbon.
Here is a tested recipe for the hot
cross buns for Knster:
' To one cupful of scalded milk add
one-fourth cupful of sugar, two ta
blespoonfuls of butter and one-half
tenspoonful of suit. When it is cooled
enough not to hurt the yeast cake
that Ib, about lukewarm add one-half
of a yeast cake dissolved in one-fourth
cupful of lukewarm water. Also add
three-fourths of a tcaspoonful of clnna
mun and three cupfuls of flour and one
egg well beaten.
Mix these well before adding a half
cupful of rnislns and currants mixed.
The rnislns should be cut up and
stoned, of course. Let it rise carefully
covered like any buns or rolls over
night If for breakfast In the morning
shape the bung like large biscuits, leav
ing a spnee of nn Inch for them to
spread, and let them rise well.
Brush them over with beaten egg
and bake about twenty minutes. When
cool make a frosting into the form of
a cross on the top of each or else cut
a cross In ench Just before baking
nnd scatter sugar on when serving
them. A glaze of milk nnd melted but
ter enn also be used wiped over with
a bit of soft cotton cloth when they are
Just ready to take from the overt.
FACTS ABOUT EASTER.
Many Customs Are Ancient and Come
From the East.
The custom of putting on uew clothes
for Easter is very ancient nnd is com
mon to the great festivals of nil reli
gious. On the central feast of the Mos
lem year It is considered absolutely
necessary for every man nnd womun
to wear new clothes.
The "Easter dress" nnd the "Easter
hat" of modern times, so widely adver
tised by our city mcrchauts are there
fore not In any way an Incongruity,
but emphasize the oplrlt of the day
quite as much as the "Easter egg,"
which is supposed to typify the germ
of a resurrect Ion of life,
So that ns nil nature Is renewed nnd
regurmenled lu the spring It Is lilting
that mankind should follow. Unable
to renew the body, man does the next
best thing nud dons new garb.
The name Easter, according to tho
Venerable Bede, Is heathen In Its ori
gin, so called after the Saxon goddess
Eastre, who was worshiped with pe
culiar ceremonies in the month of
April. In the eastern church it Is call
ed I'ascha or the holy 1'asch, which
will be observed in . the. Russian and
Greek churches this year on April 14,
the Jewish pnssover falling on April 22.
In the second century there was a
great dispute between the Asiatic and
Latin churches regarding the proper
date for the celebration of the resur
rection of Christ. As far as the Latin
church was concerned, it was settled
once and for all at the council of Nlcaea
In the year 324. The fact thnt the an
cient British church, when Augustine
landed, observed Enster nccordlng to
the Eastern custom,! urged as a rea
son for believing that Grent Hrltalu
received her Christianity from the east
nnd not from the west, from St. John
rnther than from St. refer, from Antl
och nnd not from Home.
Tho early Christian emperors cele
brated the day by setting prisoners
free nnd by scattering gifts. It was
"Dominica C,audl"-the day of Joy for
all people. The popular Easter hymns
nre from I.atln sources. "Welcome,
Happy Morn, Age to Age Shall Say,"
was written by Kurt mutt us for the
Eastor worship of tho abbey of St
Croix. "He Is Ulseu" is nn old Ambro
sial! hymn which has been sung In the
Milan cathedral for many centuries.
"Jenus Christ Is Itlsen Today" Is of un
known origin, although probably from
a Latin source. It appeared first In
English In the collection by Tuto and
llniily. As In the case of Christmas,
we n ro Indebted to Charles Wesley for
a good Easter hymn, the one beginning
"Christ the Lord Is Itlsen Today."

NOVEL EASTER FAVORS.
Rabbite and Chickens Easily Mad Out
Do you want to make peanut rnbblU
or chicks for Enster greetings? If to
It Is very easily done.
For the rabbit's cars and tall use lit
tle pointed bits of paper, which can b
glued on. Sometimes you will find the
rabbit already has a tall nnd you will
not need to supply one. The rabbit
will stand up very easily after you
huvo given him his feet, because there
are four of them. Tho feet nnd the
eyes are madu from mutchos or tooth
picks. The Utile chicks need only feet and
eyes, but ns they havo only two feot
they will not stand us easily as the
rabbits. To make them stand easily
lake a plecu of u visiting card an
Inch or less square nnd when you
give the chick bis feet push them u
llrst through the curd. This will give
III i s t a Unit foundation to stand upon,
ami you can either semi hi m this way
or, If you wish, you can paste thH
piece of card to a larger piece or to the
bottom of the box you send him In. If
you are careful you can put him Inside
of an eggshell.
