Her myriad voices cry through every

Certain flowers and plants have al
ways been set apart as sacred things,
and from tho very dawn of history we
hear of flower-decked altars and
wreaths of sacrifice. Tho heathen
temples were udorned with earth's
fairest blossoms, scattered on the al
tars, and twined around tho brow of
priest nnd ucolyte. The amaranth
bloomed In deathless beauty upon tho
Olympian heights, the myrtle was be
loved of Apollo, the rose, tho lily, the
mistletoe were favorites of legend and
myth. The flowers once sacred to
Freya, the spring goddess of northern
mythology, were chosen for their spot
less purity, In form nnd color. And
when heathen myth gave place to
Christian truth, these sacred treasures
were transferred to the Virgin, and be
came symbols of tho queen of hcuven.
So It Is that In every story of saint
or madonna we find either tho lily or
tho rose tho lily with Its fragrance,
us bending, bowing, waving hells,
seems to whisper of purity and wor
ship; the rose, with its faint and far
away odor, which seems to hint of
eternal hope. One might almost fill a
garden wPh flowers ull nuincd for the
Virgin Mary, generally because they
chance to blossom on Our Lady's days
(such ns the visitation, tho assump
tion, her birlh, baptism, purification).
There are lady's slipper, lady's mantle,
lady's fingers, lady's smock, lady's
tresses. Virgin's bower, or clematis,
begins to bloom In July, the feast of
visitation, and is at full bloom at as
sumption In August.
The lily was first found in connec
tion with the Virgin In the story of
her ascension to heaven, and it orig
inated probably In the second century.
According to this legend, It was three
days after the burial of our Lord's
mother that tho apostles visited and
opened her grave and found It filled
with fragrant, spotless lilies. Since
then these matchless flowers have been
called "Madonna lilies," or "flowers
of the Virgin." The common white
lily of our gardens, that blooms In
July, and Is the sweetest and most
graceful of nil flowers, might well be
called "holy." No one seems to know
Its origin. It Is never found wild In
Palestine, nor can we find Just where
It grows without culture. Hut we see
It In tho faded pictures of old Italian
masters and Netherland painters,
made long before the discovery of this
Nearly all of our great poets have
prslsed this flower. Chaucer and
Spenser speak of It as a mystical blos

The Georgians of Augusta are chuck
ling over a new story about Mr. Taft,
who drove out one afternoon to see a
Georgia planter. The planter's cook,
a very old woman, takes no interest In
public affairs, and she did not recog
nize the portly guest.
"What did you think of that gentle
man, Martha?'' the planter asked, after
Mr. Taft had driven off.
"Well, sir," old Martha replied, "I
can't say as I saw nothln' pcrtlckler
about him. He looked to me llko the
kind of mnn as would be pretty reg'ler
to bis meals." Louisville Times.
The Secret of Success.
The motto of succcbs was given In
this tale, told at a banquet:
A Swede among the miners In tho
west was noted for always striking
pay dirt. His fellows thought that
there must be some secret to the un
usual success of the Swede and ques
tioned him as to how ho always suc
ceeded In finding the spot where the
gold cropped out.
"Veil, Ay don't know ef Ay can tell
anyang 'bout dat," answered Ole. "Ay
only know dat Ay y list keep on dig
Bin'." Milwaukee Free Press.
But It All Came Out Right.
How a sister played a trick that
brought rosy health to a coffee fiend Is
in interesting tale:
"I was a coffee fiend a trembling,
nervous, physical wreck, yet clinging
to the poison that stole away my
strength. I mocked at Postum and
would have none of It.
"Ono day my sister substituted a
cup of Postum piping hot for my morn
ing cup of coffee but did not tell mo
what It was. I noticed the richness of
It nnd remarked that the coffee tasted
fine but my sister did not tell me
I was drinking Postum for fear I might
not take any more.
"Sho kept tho secret and kept giv
ing me Postum Instead of coffeo until
I grew stronger, more tireless, got a
better color In my sallow cheeks and
a clearness to my eyes, then she told
me of tho health-giving, nerve
strengthening life-saver she had given
me in place of my morning coffee.
From that time I hecamo a disciple of
Postum and no words can do Justlco
In telling tho good this cereal drink
did me. 1 will not try to tell It, for
oiily after having used It can one bo
convinced of Its merits."

stroyed. "There's a Reason."
