"This year, for your sake and mine, I took'the radical Step' of looking the matter up, aud as my valentine.to you, let me tell you a few things aibout Valentino's Day. In tho llrst place, the reason no one ever tells us clearly about the origin of tho celebration and why it is called St. Valentine's Day Is that no one knows. There aro two Valentines for.whom this honor has been claimed. The first is Saint Valentine, a pope of the early church. He was a most holy and austere man and was cast into jail for his faith during the Claudlan persecutions. While ho was there he cured tho jailor's daughter of blindness; subsequently ho was beaten with clubs, then beheaded. The other Valentine was a bishop. 'The chief thing known about him was that he choked to death on a llsh.bone. For some reason people afflicted with epilepsy pray for him. Any possible reason why either one of these men should be chosen for the patron saint of lovers no one has been able to find out. '">ers no The celebration itself probably comes down to us from the old Roman times, for in tho month of February festivals were held to Juno o7!he an iri an rVm° ° f ^ ^^^ ^ ^ "^ b ° y " l ° draw t^o naiw The Christian fathers disapproved of this custom and tried to Induce the young men to draw tho names of saints instead. The idea was tha? each young man was to imitato tho virtues of the saint whose nam« he drew m connection with this custom, it is supposed that Saint Valentine somehow got mixed up with the day which npw bears hlg nam« There are many traditions c onn e °ted with the 14th, of February is that it Is the day on wbi.-.h birds choose their mates Hence lug of names by the young men. According to an old English custom the man or maid who «r«*< member of the opposite sex by being the first to say, "Good mowoV 'tis St. Valentine's Day." could claim a sHt. "»v»r°w, us Another idea was that the first woman seen by a man on that and vice versa—was to be his valen tine or sweetheart. ' Of course, the immortal Pepys has some interesting little to contribute.
