MUZZEY M UCH has been related of the spiritual observances of merry old England at the Eastertide, and too little told of the culinary achievements that tickled the palates of peasants and eourtlers alike on that great feast <Jay, writes Marion Butler In the Chicago Tribune. Not only were these Easter dishes intriguing in appearance and taste, Jiut they were made doubly fascinating by folk ceremonies that attended them. Nearly every day of the old English Easter week had Its own special dish and unusual practices to go nlong with It. Tuesday was, and still is in some sections, known as "Pancake day." Although the term "Shrove" was originally de- aived from the Anglo-Saxon "scrl- ian," meaning to levy a penance, the English epicures evidently Invented a most delightful way of paying up, for on tills day It became traditional for every family to bake thick, mealy pancakes, flavored with sherry, and serve them sizzling hot for' breakfast. Maundy Thursday was the day on which the kings of England used to distribute baskets of food, known as "maunds," to the poor. These were especially coveted for the fine, white bread that they contained, loaves such as those being rare delicacies of that time. James II was the last sovereign to perform this ancient ceremony with all the elaborate church rites that attended It. Good Friday fairly abounds in curious legends and customs connected with hot cross buns. In the early hours of Good Friday morning, Englishmen used to be abruptly torn from their pleasant clumbers by the great hue and cry of the bun vendors, who paraded the twisting, narrow streets of the towns, pushing their unwieldy bun carts before them, and chanting from dawn to dusk the familiar, old refrain: "Hot cross buns I One a penny, two a penny! Hot cross buns!" Since modern warming contrivances were unknown in those days, these vendors had a difficult time keeping their wares hot. They carried them In large wicker baskets, such as we still use on wash days here. The buns were placed In layers of flannels to keep them warm, and then covered over with an outer cloth of white or green. It is related that the bun vendors of old were also extremely cautious In the manner In which they handed out the buns to customers, permitting only one hand to slide gingerly beneath the covers in drawing out their wares, thus allowing only the smallest possible breath of air to penetrate Inside. The hot cross buns of yesteryears were much more crisp and crunchy than our softer modern ones. They also were more highly flavored with spices, and had a sticky coating of brown sugar. So favorite a dainty did these pastries become with the English, that more than two hundred years ago In Chelsea two royal bun houses sprang up, waging the bitterest of "bun feuds" over the all-Important question of which baked the beat buns.

In that region, where mosquitoes are thick, explorers frequently saw "monkeys with high fevers" drop out of trees and die, dozens of them, victims of yellow fever. Fortunately for Brazil cities, the jungle mosquito that bites monkeys and gives them yellow fever keeps away from cities. The fight against disease-bearing mosquitoes and rats would keep men busy. If they were not busy already killing each other In war. Edward VIII, new king of England, visited the magnificently luxurious ocean steamer Queen Mary In Glasgow, then went from house to house, knocking on doors, visiting some of the worst slum dwellings In all his kingdom. Later, talking to Lord Melchett, the king put the problem of England, this country and the whole world in these few words: "How do you reconcile a world that has produced this mighty, ship with the slums we have jusli visited r I SUNDAY International II SCHOOL •:• LESSON-'- By REV.

Heaven knows how many thousands of pounds it is actually worth. The Koran Is said to have been written by a highly educated Jew, who suggested Ideas to Mohammed, the latter being unable to write. It Is possible, however, that angels, supposed to . have revealed divine truth to Mohammed, also taught him to write. EGGS AT EASTER 'TpHE use of eggs at Easter A time follows a custom of greatest antiquity, the egg having been considered In widely separated pre-Christian mythologies as the symbol of resurrection. It Is probable that the Christian church adopted and consecrated an earlier custom. The egg is generally regarded as the symbol of spring, life and fecundity of nature. "Hot Cross Buns! One a Penny, Two a Penny! Hot Croos Buns!" inal Chelsea Bun House. Popular taste seemed to shift, ut intervals, from one to the other. Both occupied large, frame buildings with covered counters, stretching along their fronts. People used to travel miles on foot and horseback, getting up at the first flush of dawn on Good Friday morning, to eat fresh hot cross buns there, or to buy them in square, black boxes to take back home. Although the Christian sign of the cross has been Imprinted upon these hot cross buns for many centuries now, they were really products of pre-Christian times! Egyptian priests used to sell buns In front of their temples, compiling small fortunes from these strange "admission tickets." In primitive England, pagan tribes rudely mixed ceremonial buns of I coarse grain and water as an offer- ling to the coming of the spring "sun, an event which they celebrated at wild festivals. With the coming of Christianity, the clergy waged warfare against this pagan practice, but met with such scant success that they evidently decided to make the best of a bad bargain by converting the buns Into Christian symbols through the holy mark of the cross. Another strange kind of bread, baked by old English cooks on Good Friday, was a loaf of very hard biscuit dough, having the sign of the cross perforated in it, The peasants carefully hung these loaves from their cottage roofs, leaving them there until Good Friday morn- Ing of the following year as special talismans to protect their homes from fire. In the dark, superstitious -lays prior to modern medicine, to these curious loaves were attributed the healing powers of the family doctor of modern times. Whenever an Illness fell upon them, these devout peasants of long ago would dissolve small hits of the bread In water, and drink It wJU ns much faith In Its curative qualities as we would have In the scientifically prescribed medicine or tonic of today! Good news for tree growers, fruit trees or others. You may get rid of insect pests by hammering the trunks of trees with a riveting machine, such as Is used In driving rivets in city skyscrapers. A California -inventor patented the process. This writer proposes to try It on a New Jersey orchard at the earliest possible moment The riveting is said to loosen the Insect pests, after which It is easy to wash them oft with a strong spray of water, no chemicals needed. To save the tree from injury, It la probably desirable to put several thicknesses of old automobile tires or tubes between the bark and the riveting machine. There Is plenty of money In this country, billions of it, Jesse Jones will tell you, but It Is not circulating, as unhealthy for money in u country as for blood In your veins. You know the strange, perhaps true, story of a man who unwittingly passed a counterfeit $10 bill. It went through the hands of ten individuals, paid for $100 worth of goods, and came back to the man who originally passed it. He identified and destroyed It. One hundred dollars' worth of debts had been paid, nobody was any the worse. Money is a queer thing. Origin of Eaiter Bonnet The Easter bonnet originated In the popular superstition that to wear a new bonnet for the first time on Easter Sunday was to be assured happiness In love during the year. DARKNESS OF CRUCIFIXION *TpHE "darkness over all the •*• earth" at the time of the crucifixion could not have been caused by an eclipse of the sun, for the reason that It occurred just after the passover, at the time of full moon, and an eclipse can only occur when the moon Is between us and the sun, or at the time called "the dark of 'the moon." Do not give "living toys" to your Children for Easter presents. Many parents and friends thoughtlessly give children helpless living creatures, easily hurt—live chicks, or newly hatched ducklings. ' The helpless creatures are roughly treated, mutilated, fortunate if they happen to be promptly killed, by children that know no better. The hard-working, Intelligent Swiss nation is said to be disturbed by the prospect of another war as by none other. Every Swiss under fifty la armed, trained and ready. Even in the big war nobody tried to invade Switzerland—too much ha-d climbing, and the conqueror would not know how to run the hotels, even if be acquired them. The immediate business of this country is to find some way of, controlling flood waters—probably »ot impossible. C King Features Syndicate, Inc. The supreme test of Christianity Is the fact of the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. It matters little what Jesus said and did while alive if his body remained in the grave. If he did not come forth in triumph from the tomb, then all his claims are false. On the other hand, if he did arise, nil his claims are true. Fortunately, there is no better authenticated fact in all history .than that of the resurrection of the body of Jesus Christ. I. The Empty Sepulchre (vv. 1-3). 1. The coming of women (v. 1). As an expression of affectionate regard for the Master, they came with spices for his body. This was a beautiful expression of sentiment, but showed their lack of faith. If they had believe'd his words, they would have known that his body could not be found in the sepulchre, 2. What they found (vv. 2, 3). When they came to the sepulchre, they found the stone had been removed. How the stone was to be removed greatly perplexed them on their way, but on their arrival they discovered that their difficulty had already been met. They found the stone rolled away, but they found not the body of Jesus. For them to have found his body in the sep- ulchre would have been the world's greatest tragedy. The empty tomb spoke most eloquently of the deity and power of the Son of God (Rom. 1:4). II. The Message of the Men In Shining Garments (vv. 4-8). 1. "Why seek ye the living among the dead?" (T. 5). This question has been reverberated through the centuries since it was uttered by the angels. 2. "He Is not here, but Is risen." Jesus had made all these matters quite plain. He had told them that the Lord must be betrayed and crucified and that on the third day he would arise ngaln. If they hat: given heed to his words, they would have been relieved of their perplexities. III. The Women Witnessing to the Eleven (vv. 9-11). Their thrilling testimony concerning the empty tomb and the words of the angels appeared to the disci pies as Idle tales and, therefore they refused to believe. IV. Peter Investigating (v. 12). While the testimony of the worn en seemed as idle tales, Peter was not of the temperament to dismiss the matter from his mind. There fore, he ran to the sepulchre. Upon close investigation he found the linen clothes lying In such a waj as to prove the reality of the res urrectlon. V. The Convinced Disciples (rv 13-35). 1. The walk of two discouraged disciples (vv. 13-15). Ernmaus was seven and a half miles northwes of Jerusalem. Just why the dls clples were walking this way we may not surely know. The topic o conversation as they walked wa the tragedy of the cross and tho resurrection rumors. If they had believed what Jesus said about his coming forth from the grave, they would have been expecting to hear just such reports as were circulating. 2. The unrecognized companion (vv. 10-24). a. Who he was (v. 10). While they reasoned together on the wonderful events of the past few days, Jesus joined them on the journey. b. Ills question (v. 17). Perceiving their sadness and perplexity, he sought to help them by calling forth a statement of their grief. This question surprised them and caused them to Jump at the conclusion that he was a stranger In Jerusalem, for the condemnation and crucifixion of the great Prophet of Nazareth were so recent and notorious that no one who had lived In Jerusalem could be Ignorant of them. 3. The Scriptures opened (vv °> 31). a. His rebuke (vv. 25-30). H e re . buked them not for their unbelief of the strange stories that they and Pattern 787 Just a bit—but a telling bit—of decoration is all that's needed today to make our household linens smart And so, simple cross stitch brings color and life to humble tea-towels which make dish doing a pleasure rather than n duty.
