merable of pagan gods and Druldlcal cus

stolen away to fairyland on that night and
the beliefs regarding the falrlea that have
sprung up since the Christian era and are
till springing up In the unspoiled parti!
The fairies have three great festivals
throughout the year May eve, or Besltanle
night; Midsummer ever, or 8t. John's eve,
end Hallowe'en, or Samhaln night. Hal
loween, according to the old Druldlcal dl
vision of the year, comes on the last day
of summer. Their name for It Samhaln
night means "summer's end." It is the
gloomiest night of the whola twelve months
to the fairy folk. The Fe-fiada, or spell
of enchantment. Is removed from all the
gentle (fairy) hills and rath as the last
bit of daylight fades, and all the fairies
come trooping forth to moorlands and
mountains to join In a mad revel with the
khost and witches and banshees and that
most demoniac spirit of all, the dreaded
If you have ever been In Ireland on Hal
luwe'en you will remember that all night
long the wind walls round the housetops
and makes a fearful moan. It Is really
not the wind you hear, but the great la
mcnt or Caoln that the fairies make for
the dead summer.
As the falrlea are allowed to leave their
hills, so mortals sre allowed to enter them,

the depths of the rath and brought back
wonderful tales of fairy palaces and gar
dens and the like.

tin Hallowe'en the leprechaun, the fairy
cobbler, leaves the thornbush under which
he has worked all summer, making and
mending th fairies' shoes, and hurries
Into the earth to stay till May day brings
him out again. You can hear the tap,' tap,
tap of his hammer In the long dusk of the
summer evenings; the worldly wise say tt
Is the woodpecker. As the fairies dance
every night all summer and as they are
said to wear their shoes out at one dance
the leprechaun Is kept busy till the last
day of October, when his long winter res

the v!rHs nd fairies may not go hungry,
I here Is Paddy, for example, who has
seen the fairies often. He lives by him
self in a wee thatched cabin with only his
geese about him, and every Hallowe'en he
brushes up his hearth until It Is spotless;
lie clears out the dirt from eaoh corner and
crack and then he stacks the turf on the
fire till the room Is bright from the light of
It. Out he pulls a small table from the
wall,: on which he spread a elotli and on
the cloth he puts a jug of milk ami an
earthen dish, of soda bread- This ia for the

Jamie tells his first story. It Is about
Cuchulalu, the champion of the Red

Jamie tells, was stolen away on Samhaln
night or Hallowe'en, by Fand, the daugh
ter of the king of the fairies, and taken to
the land of eternal youth where, to quote
Testes, "Nobody grows old and godly and
grave, where nobody grow old and crafty
and wise, where nobody grow old and bit-,
ter of tongue." Fand kept Cuchulaln as
ner mortal husband for a year, but on Uie
next Halloween, when the gate of Fairy

to earth, back to the hall where King Conor
and the Red Branch Knight were feaatlna-

too Imitative. For example:! took around
