A The Yuletide Log. custom at one time preval ent in England and still observed in sonsc of tho northern districts of the old couiitry is that of place- ing an iuiuionso log of wood — sometimes tho root of a great tree— in the wide chimney place. This is often called the Yule log and it was on Christmr.s eve that it was put on the wide hearth. Around it would gather the en tire family, and its entrance was the occasion of a great deal of ceremony. There were music and rejoicing, while the one au thorized to light it was obliged to have clean hands. It was alw ays lighted with a brand left over from the log of the previous year, which had been carefully preserved for the purpose. A poet singj of it in tliis way. With the last years branding Light the new block, and For good success in his spending On your psaltries play That sweet luck may Come'while the log is a-tending.
