In tho days of their power and glory, and
by them, as their empire spread, it was In
troduced into various parts of Asia and
Africa. In tho latter part of tho Twelfth
century Itlclmril tho Lion Hearted, of Eng
land, with Philip of France, headed tho
third crusade for tho rescue of the Holy
IjUihI from the dominance of the Saracen.
At the siege of Aero 11 wounded knight In

pressed to his lips n "htr.iyngo frutte,"
whoso cooling juices eased his thirst. The
knight recovered, ami returning homo
from that losing but glorious eimpnign

Meanwhile tho orange was traveling
toward Europo by another route. As in
the case of the lemon its spread was duo to
the Arabs. They covered Syria ami Persia

Hercules scattered the seeds of the yellow
fruit on the fair and fertile plains of Italy,
Sicily and Spain. They called It "narang,"
and they cultivated rt moro for its beauty
than for its qualities as a table delicacy,
for the juice and pulp had n bitter taste.
The sweet orango was brought to Europo
from southern China by tho Portuguese
In IW8, and was know 11 as apfclsluu, or tho
apple of China.
So in tho Middle Ages tho lemon and
orange spread the fragrance of their flow
era throughout tlio civilized world. They
bloomed In fair Florence, where Loreno
the Magnlflccnt ruled and Hoccaccio wrote
his wondrous tales, and through their
leaves the scented breezes sought the gar
dens and fountains of the famed A 11mm

they became the fashion as the jears went
