TRUE ORIGIN OF
ST. VALENTINE'S DAY
It Is the fagh'in nowadays to speak
of many old customs that stilt sur
vive, although much diminished, as if
th-y wer to all li.ti?nts and pu-utses
already dead. Si. Valentine's day Is
nowhere observed. It is true, as much
as it was 200 years ago, nor even as
much as it was In the early recollec
tion of some of the elder generation of
the present; yet It is very far from be
ing extinct as a peculiar aud popular
holiday. In somo of the rural (J-tticts
of England it is still celebrated with
much quaint fidelity to tradition, and
even lu this country certain of Its well
known features are not likely to be
wholly abandoned, if ever, for many
years to come. Indeed, the social
prophet may well question whether St.
Valeutiuc's tlay may not. rather regain
much that it has lost through the at
trition of time and change by ti e natu
ral reaction that follows all positive
movements. The tendency toward re
newed respect for some social insti
tutions of the past that have fallen
into partial desuetude Is rather mark
ed. The dominant instinct of the
twentieth century thus far seems to bo
conservative as well as progressive.
Not very long aso it. was thought
that St. Valentine's day was given over
almost absolutely to the sorry wits
and their patrons who made it a con
venience for vulgar lampooning and
anonymous libel, but even then the
pretty sentiment belonging to it had
not been altogether lost, and since
then it has steadily revived. The proof
of the assertion is in the fact that
there is row a greater demand for
printed valentines of real poetic and
artistic merit than ever before, and
that those of the cheap, illiterate and
niHlIcloiiB type are comparatively lit
tle sought after.
So much that is within the reach of
ail has been written about St. Valen-
tine's day thut any article upon it
must necessarily be only a reminder
ot that which is already known. It
has been the theme of numberless
roots and antiquarians. After all,
nothing better expresses the spirit of
this festival, since, upon the extension
of Christianity, it assumed its modern
character, than the lines of that fresh
voiced English poet, tho Rev. John
Donne, wlm was contemporaneous with
1 In It. Bls'iop Valentine! whose day this Is;
All the ulr Is thy diocese.
And nil the chirping; choristers
And other birds are thy mrishloners:

cadia. This was a festival of seven
oiys, beginning in tho ides of Feb
ruary, or on the 14th or loth of that
month. It was called Lupercalia after
the wolf, lupus, which is supposed to
be associated in some way with Pan,
and was often represented by tho an
cients as a smybol of light and the
course of the seasons. Tan was the
killer of wolves and tho protector of
the shepherds who dwelt upon Mount
Palatine before Komulus and Remus
built their city there. Ily some, tho
name of the festival Is supposed also
to bear relation to the legend of the
miraculous suckling of the Roman
twins by a she wolf In a cave near
this spot. Part of the unspeakable
mysteries of the Lupercalia was cele
brated in such a cave. But much of
this inference is pure after-thought.
It does not affect In the least the
theory that the festival was begun as
a recognition of the prodigious powers
Choice by Lots.
Uuring the Lupercalia It was the
custom of the male celebrants to draw
from a box the names of young women
r.nd girls, possession of whom was thus
determined by chance. It was tho
policy of the early Church to adapt to
its own system those customs of the
pagans which it could not extirpate.
This method of mating or betrothal re
sisted prohibition and even substitu
tion. It is related that St. Francis
do Sales and other Christian pastors
put. the names of saints on the lots to
be drawn, in the place of those of
maidens, nnd charged the young men
who received them to imitate those
saints throughout the year. But while
they may have tried very hard to obey
this injunction, It appears that the lot
drawing, not in honor of Februata
Juno, but In honor of that which she
personified, continued in secret. The
"THE MARAUDERS" Louis Prion.
Church could not do otherwise than
tolerate tho custom, when tho name
of a patron saint was substituted by
popular fancy for that of Juno.
There Is no clear account of how
St. Valentine came to he made the
bit hop of the diocese of love, which
Donne so prettily describes. There
are several St. Valem.nes, and it is
not even known to a certainty which
of these owns the Invisible mitre.
The one who died a martyr at Home
under Claudius Is, however, most spo
ken of In this connection. Some
authorities say that he was the bishop
of a material diocese, and others thnt
he was only a presbyter. VA'heatley
writes that ho "was a man of most
admirable parts, and so famoiM for
his charity and lovo that the choos
ing of valentines upon his festival
took rise from thence." In this ex
planation, however, the causo is evi
dently mistaken for the effect. The
custom of choosing valentines was
already established, and chancing,
through its derivation from tho pngnn
festival, to fall upon the Ides of Feb
ruary, In which also occurred either
the birth or the martyrdom of St.
Valentine, tho appropriation of the
name to thnt custom was most nat
ural in view of his character.
Blessed be St. Valentine, and may
hit memory be kept green It looks
as It the wish was to be fulfilled, for
never was there a time when the shops
dUplnyetl a wider vnrh'ty of valen
tines. The lace paper heart and the
bouquet of verse are still gtxul form,
but gifts great and small of every con
ceivable atylo are permitted.
Heart-shaped bonbon boxes and
dainty recrptacles for my lady's pretty
things are to be had. Then there aro
heart shaped envelopes for lave notes
nd true lovers' knots In gold, silver,
gun metal and enamel. Tiny hearts of
enamel with a mirror on one side sur

trifle for an opera bag If the young

are the puffy utile hearts of silver and
gold designed to hold a powder puff

In England and Scotland and the
countries colonized by them St. Val
entine's day retained all through the
Middle Ages and down almost to the
present a more typical character than
rt did elsewhere. In Austria and Hun
gary it is a festival of flowers rather
than of love billets. Young girls who
wish for a husband cast flowers into
the Danube, and if they are borne
steadily down the stream, without
meeting with serious obstruction, the
omen is held to be auspicious of
speedy marriage. In some parts of
France the eve of St. Valentine's day
is called the Feast of the Torches;
but the celebration, which, indeed, is
sometimes held on the first Sunday of
Lent. has. apparently, a closer his
torical relation to that period of ab
negation than to the patron ot lovo's
courtship. The torches that, are jused
are made of twisted straw, and are
brandished In the air by those who
carry them, while at the same time
peculiar rustic dances are performed.
A Philological Theory.
Antiquarians have drawn from phil
ology a means of explaining in an alto
gotner different way the name of tho
festival of Si. Valentine. It Is well
known that in many languages one
letter of the alphabet may easily be
substituted for another through popu
lar error in the spelling of particular
words. It is suspected by some that
the name Is primarily derived from
the Latin "vale," which Is equivalent
to our "farewell," a salutation that
was placed at the end of letters; but
a largo number more Ingeniously find
its source in the lathi "valens," vali
ant, gallant. According to them. In
passing from the Latin into the Nor
man French this word took a "g" in
lieu of the "v," and a logical develop
ment of it was the noun "galantln." a
lover of women. As gallantry and
vallance, in another sense, aro syn
onymous, it was easy for "galatln"
to become "valantan" or "valantln."
It is pleasant to leave all these con
jectures aside after simply passing
them l.i review, and to determine,
merely for the delectahlo purposes
of the Imagination, that we will join
with Charles Lamb and other most
worthy dreamers In regarding St. Val
entine as a real bishop, who has a
very charming mission In connection
with the love affairs of humanity.
Thus does the inimitable Lamb apos
trophize him: "Like unto thee, as
suredly, there Is no mitred father In
the calendar. Thou comest attended
with thotiRiinds und ten thousands
little Loves, nnd the air Is
" 'Hrtislil with the kiss of rustling wings'
The writer oftenest quoted for a
characteristic description of the old
manner of observing the right of St.
Valentino is Mlsson, a French travel
er. "An equal number of maids and
men get together," ho says; "each
writes their true or some feigned
name upon separate billets, which
they roll up and draw by way of lots,
the maids taking tho men's billets and
the men tho maids; so that each of
the young men lights upon tho girl
that he call his valentine, and each

Many superstitious were embroid
ered on the original St. Valentine tra
dition, and some of them are held in
honor even to this day. One Is found
In this most curious extract from a
young woman's diary, published in
an old-time English periodical:
"Last Friday was St. Valentine's
Day and the night before I got five
bay loaves and pinned four of them
to tho four corners of my pillow, and
the fifth to the middle; and then, if
I dreamt of my sweetheart. Betty
said we should be married before tho
year was out. But to make it more
sure, I boiled an egg hard, and took
out the youk and filled it with salt;
and when I went to bed, eat It shell
and all, without npeaklng or drinking
after It. We also wrote our loveis'
names upon hits of paper, and rolled
them up In clay, and put them into
water, and the first that roso up was
to be our Valentine. Would you think
