Garden c Tips By the Morning Glory Garden Club THE STORY OF THE PASSION FLOWER The Passion Flower was named by the early Spanish and Portuguese missionaries who found the flower In their travels through Mexico and South America and saw in it a representation of Christ's death and passion. Represented in the parts of the flower are the crown of thorns, the nails, five wounds, ten apostles, the brands of the persecutors, the scourge and pillar of the cross. A column rises from the center of the flower, on top of which are three stigma resembling nails, which are taken to be the three nails with which Christ was nailed to the cross. A small portion of the column beneath the stigma, known as the stylus, is thought to represent the sponge which was dipped in vinegar to moisten his lips, while protruding from the stylus are five stamens suggestive of the five wounds. The main portion of the center column, which is a light green color, is taken to represent the pillar of the cross. The base of the column is encircled by the crown of thorns. Supposedly there are 72 filaments which, according to tradition, correspond to the number or thorns in Christ's crown. The crown of thorns is surrounded by purple colored radiating digitate leaves suggesting the hands of those who scourged Him while the lash with which Christ was beaten at the pillar is represented by the coiling tendril which shoots off from the stem. The ten petals of the flower, five white and five purple, are suggestive of the apostles, omitting Peter who denied and Judas, who betrayed. The .three under leaves typify the resurrection on thefthird day, or are suggestive of the three days spent in the tomb. The plant leaf with three points is taken as a symbol of the Most Holy Trinity, or resembling the head of a lance used to pierce the side of Christ. The seed pod represents the world which Christ came to save and the spices prepared by the holy women are supposedly found in the delicate fragrance of the flower.

Diamonds play an important part in our everyday life. The cherished wish of a young man to present his loved one with a beautiful engagement ring or wedding band is one of the happiest occasions in the life of two individuals. Many famous large diamonds helped shape the course of our history. The Kohinoor (Mountain of light,) the most - famous diamond had a long and fascinating history. For centuries it was believed to have been endowed with great imaginative powers, and that he who owned the Kohinoor ruled the world despite the fact that its possession endangered the life of its owner unless the owner was a woman. This perhaps is the reason why it is now mounted in the crown 6'f the queen of England. The discovery of the world's largest diamond was very thrilling. The Cullinan or "Star of Africa" as the story goes, was found in~1905 by Mr. Fredrick Wells, manager of the Premier Mine. As he was walking through the mine at the end of a day's work he saw a shining reflection on the wall that appeared to be a large diamond crystal. Because tricks were a common occurance among the employees of the mine, he thought that perhaps someohe had planted a. large piece of glass in the blue . ground and was waiting to watch his excitement. After making the proper tests he realized that he had found the largest diamond in the world, weighing 3J106 metric carats. There are four factors by which the value of your diamond is determined. They are the color, clarity, cutting and carat weight. These provide a ruler by which the value of your diamond can be accurately measured by reliable and well trained jewelers in Gemology. At Wood Jewelers we have a wide selection of diamonds in various shapes, col6rs; styles, and any price range to meet your needs. , - "•'.. •"."•'' " . . - v ••'• •. \\ •• • • Ref: Gemological Institute of America .
