Midsummer magic nigh Idso Imer is ski chaps More than any Oiler Peason except halloween Fiji Mimi for its superstitions some of which Are of a yer highly fad Cifuni feature. Thus the believe that the souls of ii people leave their bodies on Midsummer ave and wander to the place where death Hhaux finally separate them from their tenement of Clay tence it has been suggested Aro to the Cummo of fitting up or watch no on i Nibi there would naturally be a a Trong Dej ii to it prevent the soul going on its dismal and melancholy errand. In connection also with this gush Asti Tiou notion May be mentioned a custom which formerly prevailed for \ Oung people to faint on this night and to sit in the Church porch under a a Lief that they Wuu id see the spirits of the persons of Liat Parish who would die in the course of the ear. Come and Knock at the Church door in the order and succession in which they would die. As s pc it of too of tie dread attached to this night we May quote a dutch proverb used by Thos who have been kept awake All night by Trout Sci of any kind quot we have passed quot st.

Hence our forefathers imagined Jha those who could obtain and Wear this Invin Tihle wed would be themselves invisible a to Lief of which Many instances May be found in our old dramatists. Thus ?, in quot Hinr in quot quot 11. 1 ridicules this idea in the following passage where he makes Gad Hill s3.y a quot a c have the receipt of Fem sced.

Season too has been regarded As specially propitious for love divination and on this account numerous charms have been practice by Young ladies anxious of gaining a knowledge of their future lot in the Marrie state. Among some of the most popular of served in by gone years we May include the following a i Hen toward evening girls set the or Niue in Clay upon pieces of potsherds in their houses Nick naming it quot Midsummer Man quot on the following morning As the stalk inclined either to the right or left so the anxious Maiden knew whether her Lover was Ukey to prove True or false to her. Some Vears ago a Small Gold ring was discovered in Yorkshire England which had for it device two opine lie lots joined by a True love knot with this motto above quot Ray sweetheart will or is the stalks of the Plant were Bent to each other in Token that the parties represented by them were come together in marriage. A Ain Kiki Cial Virtues were considered to reside in the Root of the Mug wort. Y Jung people sought for pieces of Eoal underneath it but which were in reality nothing More than dead roots. In addition to preserving the owner from various dangers such As lightning illness Etc., it was supposed that these when placed under the Piurow would pause the person to have Lucky dreams. Aupuni.

Thus our readers May recollect How Sam Lespeare makes Olivia speaking of Mai Vuia a seeming frenzy observe it it a Rex Midsummer a Duwe. One special feature of the Midsummer observances in Days gone by seems to have been the indeed from the account even by Jakob Gri Iran in his quot Deutsche myth Ogie quot i these would seem to have bin kindled in Ever countr of Europe Laius they were Light id in the Start ets and Market places of the at towns As at Paris Metz Etc. Occasionally also they were blessed by the Parish priest prayer and raise being offered until they had buried out. In England similar fires were kindled around which the people danced oftentimes leaping into the flames or throwing garlands of Flowers into them. In the reign of Henry Vii. They were patronized by the court and numerous entries Are to be found in the quot privy urse expenses quot of that Monarch by which he defrayed the charges in connection with them. In Ireland the practice is still kept up and we Are told that on a dark night the i effect of these fires blazing on the Hill sides at intervals of about a mile is quite an imposing sight. In the year 183 a riot took place at Cork in consequence of some soldiers a fusing to subscribe Money toward the fires which were to be lighted on Midsummer eve. These fires al has been suggested were termed quot bonfires quot Nipom their being conf Kosed of materials collected As quot Bons quot or gifts. It seems probable too that they Are a relic of the worship of Baal although some anti jurrians consider that they have reference to st. John the Baptist As being a Bright and shining Light and in some places then were called quot st. John a boarding school essay.

Quot what 0stage did Paul pay on his of Vej Listie to the c orput lilians quot a Brooklyn burials of Voltaire. Foreseeing it very contingency he had confided a plan to his Nephew the abbe Mignot whose Benefice was the Abbey of Sei Lieres at the Little Village of quot rom Iliili on the Seine a Little More than a Hundred Miles from Paris. Keeping the death a proof ibid secret the abbe with a few tested friends had the family Carriage t Rej ared and the body propped up As if it were Voltaire in he. In Titis Way the journey was Perfo nned and the body safely deposited in the Church. The declaration was produced and the unsuspecting curate carried out the burial rites. Barzily was the business done when an express came from the Bishop warning the curate that if he had Anching to do with the burying of the body or if he should permit it in consecrated ground he would suffer the most rigorous penalties and they were not Light for such an offence. But he had the authorization of the abbe Mignot the declaration of the deceased and showed that he was irresponsible. The controversy was carried no further. For thirteen years the body remained peacefully in the sepulchre while the leaven of Voltaire s teaching was working the revolution overturning feudalism dethroning Kings and giving men bom in the purple the Chance to Drain whose Dregs had for Ages been the cup held to Mankind s lips. Then when they had come to to Weir own the people decreed through the National Assembly that a fete Day should be appointed and that the remains of Voltaire Khouja be brought to Paris and deposited in the pantheon in which the great and heroic alone were to find be culture. A great car Twenty feet High adorned with All the funeral splendor that the Painter David could invent brought Back in stately stand eur the remains that had been spirited from Paris thirteen years before in secrecy and terror. Millions of i it eople followed the car. In Paris the whole City met it and the Bier rested for the night on the nuns of that ver Bastile that Voltaire had passed eleven months in nearly a Hundred years before. But As in life he had no permanent rest so in death Voltaire was not to be unmolested. In 1814 among one of the first acts of the unlearning and a forget Tang bourbons was the Clandestine opening of the Tomb and the in ominous removal of the Bones. They Wert placed in a sack carried to the Remote outs Lurt of the City and Flung into a ditch dissolved in Quick Lime and covered from knowledge of the world. It was for a Long time a dead secret. The Tomb being opened in the reign of Louis Napoleon in 1864, to place the heart in the coffin it was found Emp and the torn gradually became known by the boasting of the Bourbon sympathizers and documents preserved in the Royal school songs. One May 8<mrch through a dozen of the pop Idar collections of sunday school music without finding As Many Hgt tons whose poetic Quality would entitle them to admission in any first class newspaper. The books for that matter Are made not so much to sing from a to sell. Two or three persons who have won somewhere a local reputation for musical skill Are employed to grind out tiie quota of tunes words for which have been Wrin to order by professional verse writers whose sole a Taun a ions for the talk Are a Little idea of a tto and a Curtmn Knack at i Iliae. Hot Tufi Quentlyn indeed tiie music is written first and the verses Are made to suit it. When yet a find a Good tune said some one to the water the other Day quot take it Toswell write and kind of a pan Jroud Wani for Fyna when the work is finished and the whole vocabulary of precious metals and stones has been search a for an appropriate title it is thrown upon the country and sunday schools Are left to find out for themselves what wor Ess Matin al it Contons. It is because to song books Are so generally worthless that try Are so Short lived. We amp a tits few tui in a Iem that Are Worth singing have been once hemmed and practice for a time the Little Charm which they once possessed is gone the Book ceases to be useful and a new one is demanded. This process of course is satisfactory to those who get up the books since it mates a continuous demand for new publications. The sunday schools Are flooded with trash and the flood is deeper and the trash is poorer each year. It b a me question what is to be done about it. Llie danger is that by the use of such ditties and jingles As the children Are comi it Elled to sing the feeling of reverence in worship will be utterly wiped out. A song of Praise to the almighty should be full of de Vout sentiment expressed in a decorous by poetic manner. The time which carries it should be of a character in Harmony with the spirit of Praise. Instead of this the words Are too frequently of the same metrical Jingle As quot Oats peas Beans and Barley grow quot and the tune matches it admirably in the last five years there has been a woeful falling off in the Standard both of ditties and tunes. The writers who seemed to have acquired the largest measure of popular favor have to a certain extent run out of material As an elderly spider runs out of cobweb. The difference is that when the spider reaches this Point she stops spinning but that the makers of ditties Anc jingles keep on trying to do something. The age of the Earth. In a recent lecture at san Francisco. Professor William Denton gave several striking illustrations of the Earth s age. First he said we had evidence of the Earth s great age in the tiny particles of soil beneath our feet. The great Trees of California with from 1,350 to 2,350 annual rings of vegetable growth reveal the fact that these monarchs of the vegetable world were saplings when Nebuchadnezzar was born. The great fallen monarchs of the Forest has been estimated to have been 4,<x 0 years old and grew from seed propagated by older Parent Trees and these in Lum from grandparents whose crumbled dust forms a Rich vegetable Mold to nourish their younger progeny. How Many such generations occurred no one can Tell. But older than All these Are the glacial Beds. When these slowed to Weir was Over the surface of North America and scan Mavia they planed out mighty Beds and Gro Imd and polished Down the uneven surface of a former a. In this Remote age the coast of new gland was like that of Greenland at the present Day. For geologists will place the glacial period at less than 100,000 years Aco. But we could Oback still farther. In the tertiary strata of Jal Fomia has been found what Are called the earliest human i Mains Ever discovered. These existed Many Many thousand years when on half of new Jersey one third of Virginia a of a Texas and great Brit Ain were under water. The Mediterranean sea was then double its present size and the Culf of Mexico extended to Ohio. A Large Art of California was under the bed of the Pacific Ocean and water then extended Back to the Foothills of the Sierra Nevada Moi gains. But older than this period and formation was the underly stratification of Chalk still older was the triassic and older yet the new red Sandstone. Older yet was the carboniferous formation. Then further Back was the old red Sandstone such As comes to the surface in parts of Scotland again still lower the older silurian then the der Laurentian seen at the surface in Western Canada and older yet than All these the unite or great ted relying Rock the Parent that thrusts itself up As the Backbone of continents cutting through All others to show us on the surface what is below. What an Infinity of time must have passed away in the successive formation of these Rocky layers Sullivan. Sullivan is one of the most attractive of the Many charming villages on the Rock bound and picturesque coast of Eastern Maine and is destined in the not Distant future to become a watering place of some note As Well As an important mining Centre. Although possessing Many inherent attractions its chief claim to ment As a summer resort lies in its unrivalled location. Few indeed Are the spots so Well of awed in this respect. Situated at the head of the Beautiful and romantic Frenchman s Bay with less than ten Miles of Clear Blue water Between it and bar Harbor it commands what is undoubtedly the finest View of the Hills of mount desert to be found anywhere on the coast. Here also May be found every facility for the Best of but a iting fishing and kind Retreat ions and amusements Wale the drives in the Vicini Are unsurpassed and excursions of a few Miles into the Merior win take the visitor to an almost unbroken wilderness where the most Superb Trout and All kinds of game Are abundant.

Liot tip least Atta Active feature connected with i Sullivan Are the mules. Here May be found the finest and most extensive mining works East of the Rocky mount. Sullivan is quite a bus place just at tiie present time. The Granite Jaames Are doing a targe amount of work and men a in Astaire demand.

Speaking of his anti masonic views thur Low Weed says quot of course fifty years have softened All Liose feelings. I can Verv Well see How the men who were in the masonic movement might have Felt it a duty to punish one like Morgan who violated a solemn obligation when he exposed the secrets of free Iasoni. I have often talked with them upon the subject and they have admitted to me their intense conviction that Morgan deserved punishment. My connection with anti Mason re quot began with the writing of a paragraph for the paper which i owned in company with my partner. I noticed the disappearance of Morgan and the allegation that be had been made away with by the free masons. I said that it Behoved the free masons to find out whether their Brethren had been indicted and if possible to discover Morgan and restore him. The very next Day our paper began to suffer from the withdrawal of patronage. Papers were stopped and advertisements taken out until ruin stared our paper in the face. 1 told my partner i did not wish to ruin him.

I borrowed $400 of two gentlemen and started a new paper called the a tit masonic inquirer. In eight weeks i had a Large circulation. It turned out that i had the whole Counti with me. Quot during this time quot continued or. Weed quot my personal relations with the masons were Friendly. When j came into the taverns where they were in consultation the conversation was not stopped.
