with a sad burden a white wo

their preparation the same care is
used that a druggist would exer

April v as iiiinieil from the I. it iu
word aperite, which inonii- tootieti.
for then the earth begins to open
and the grass and the Mowers to
spring np ami Ihe little leaves to
come forth lioin the buds mi the
trees. 'I he old Anglo Sa..is called
it Ouster or r.iisler month. Ihe
Hutch called tt grass mom ii. The
foolish custom of April looting pen
pie still prevails in many eniinti u s
aiming theyntiug people. Its m igm
is unknown. Sum- say tt is a ii-iie
of an old heathen festival. S.. un
say that ill the middle ages lliej
acted a piuy l iken from Ihe lile nt
Christ, where he was sent Imm
Atiuius toCaraphas and from Pilate
to Herod, ami so an April lonl is
one w ho is sent all about on an
errand, as. for instance, for soim-
pigeon milk, or for a book giving
the history of Adam's grandfather,
or to stop a horseman and tell htm
his saddle girth is m buckled,
meaning unbuckled, so he gels
down to buckle it and they rim oil
and shout April fool. The Hindoos
practice the same thing, but their
All Fools' day is the :11st of March.
My folks killed a snake in the
(lower jut today and In-fore 1 knew
it our mischievous school jjirl hud
foiled it nil the front steps and
everybody who came cried .ml.
Here's a snake," while the chil
dren watched from the window.
I he snake was dead, out the lools
were alive. My w il'e was siM iiding
the day in the country aud know
ing her horror of snakes they tele
phoned her. Snuke iu the flower
pit and grandpa is afraid to go out
and kill him. He says you told
him to stay in the house. h il
must we dof She answerel
promptly, "Kill him! Let jour
grandpa go out und kill him and
look for his male." She always
insists that every snake has a mate.
Mavlie it has but they don't gi
about together, liven the mother
leaves her voting ns soon as they
are hatched or liorn and they have
lo shilt for themselves. Some
snakes are oviparous and lay eggs
and some are viviparous and are
born in their mother and come
forth from her mouth, lint nil
snakes are horrid creatures aud the
curse that is uion them Is a strong
proof ol the Hcriptures. '-And I
will put enmity between thee- ami
the woman (that is, my wife) and
between thy seed and her seed. It
shall bruise thy head ami thou
shidt bruise his heel.''
When my wife came home they
showed her the snake ( it was n
striped garter snake), and told her
we couldn't find its mate, but I am
zoing to put this one back iu a day
or two aud kill him again for a
mate but I II bet she won t go In
that pit any more this summer.
But there are won things than
makes. I want to know who
startel this late move to idolize
and ovate the memory of Henry
Ward Beecher in New York. It
has been forty-four years since he
sent old John Brown to take the
arsenal at Harper's Ferry and raise
an insurrection among our negroes.
