This is the l.i-nteii -ea-oii a
season which is observed with I In
greatest .solemnity by all the Chi is
tian churches of the world except
by some id' the independent deiioin
illations of 1'lngland and the I'nited
States. l!y none is it more rigidly
kept than by the Lutheran Churches
of the North of Europe.
For at least twelve hundred year-,
and probably much longer, this
fa-t of forty days before Easier has
been kept as it is ob.-eivcd in.w.
1 u t the institution was not e-'ab-li.-bed
at once in its present form.
E.i.-ter. the feast ot' the Resurrec
tion of .lesus. corresponding with
the .lewi-h Passover, was kept from
t he very earliest age of Cln is! un
ity, and a dispute about the date ol
celebrating it was one of the caii.-e-(d'lhe
separation of the Ea.-tcin
and the Western Churches the
Cri'eek and the Roman.
It is not known when the i u-ioin
of fa.-ting before Easter originated,
but it is refeired to in the writings
ot Sr. Irena-us, who lived in the
ton rt h century, as already ancient.
It is possible.that it was observed
to some extent by ( 'hri-t i.ins who
had seen ,ind heard the Apo.-tles.
but of t his there is no record.
It seems certain, however, that it
began with a fast of one or two
days, and was gradually lengt hetied.
There are passages in the woiks of
the Church Fathers urging Chiis
tians to prolong the oist and thir
ty six days, t he tent h par! o;' a ear.
is suggested as a proper duration.
The CI reek 'h in ch ult i m at eh adopt

which is the period of Ecu; in
In the Rom. in Church. and the
Cicnnan Churches of the Reioima

each of the two fasts of Moses upon
Mount Sinai, to the fast of Elijah

.Jezebel after the .-laughter of the
prophets of Iiaal. to the fast pro
claimed at Nineveh when donah
preached to that city, and to the
fast ol our Lord when He was'
tempted in the wilderness.
E'-nt which originally meant
unfiling more than springtime
was formerly kept with gloat aus
teiity, not only m Ireipient attend
ance upon religious services and in
a cessation of all amusements and
recreations, but in abstinence from
food. In luona.-tei les. particiilaily.
the bust was a i eality. The inmates
abstained liom animal food, and
partook of very little food of any
kind befoie .-un.-er. One meal a
day was the rule lor Lent, but it.
was relaxed for Sunday.
It was forbidden to mairy. to
celebrate birthdays, to perfonn'
plays, or to engage in any festivities
during the Lenten sea.-on. Good
Christians were and they still are.
in most churches which keep Lent
expected to go to a church service
every day. and to be more liberal m
their charitiesthan at other seasons.
Some of these regulations have
been partially relaxed in modern
times. Physical necessity has re
quired that laboring men and wo
men .-hall be. to sonic extent,
exempted from the obligation to

generally, as laid down by the Ro

Edith Sheiman was a long time
recovering from the terrible ordeal
through which she '.ad gone. It
in i v be doubted v. bet her any ie

borne to he cottage of Dudley's
widowed mother, where eveiy at

In the afternoon sue had .-o far

Dudley carefully avoided leli-iiing
to the cloud that had come between
them, and only inquired as to her
condition of body; but toward
night, when Mr. Spargin. perfumed,
and as polite as ever, called to pay
his lespeets, then Edith flashed up.
"Ned." said she, drive that man
away, so that he wil! never show
ids face to me again."
Dudley was glad enough to do it.
Taking the dapper young gent leman
by the collar, he wheeled him about,
and then and there indicted such a
chastisement upon the thunder '
struck young fop that, baflled. cha ;
grmed, and enraged, be left ltiver '
ton as fast as his horse could carry .
him. and was never seen there;
When Dudley returned to the:
room and informed Edith of what ;
he had done, she laughed, and a
moment later burst into tears. '
Are you sorry!"' he asked, feel
ing something ol his old re-ent- !
"Yes; sorry that you didn't pun
ish him more than yam did. Have;
you seen father.'"
'Yes: he has been here twice.1
and seeing that you were all right,
has gone off to attend to his lum her.
Rut what meant those tears just
now.'" inquired the lumberman,,
with no little curiosity.
It was a long time before Edifh
would tell: but gradually it came

Mr. Spargin sprang out of the house. !
