While we are compelled to have our
supply of mistletoe shipped in from other
places, nevertheless we get it and it plays
no small part in Christmas festivities. In
fact it has played a leading part in Yule
festivities from time immemorial. Mistle
toe was borrowed from pagans and
Christianized by the lapse of. centuries.
Formerly it was not used for the purpose
that romantic youths have turned it to.
Even before the birth of Christ the Per
sians used it in their sacred rites and the
Indian priests in some parts of India still
incorporate it in their ceremonies. Scan
dinavian mythology would ont be complete
The Druids of England are the ones
from whom we get it. The Druid priests
descended from magi and wise men and
believed that the mistletoe was "all heal
ing. The gathering of the vine was at
tended by solemn ceremonies, and the ox
en used to haul it to the temples were
afterwards ' sacrificed." The Druids be
lieve in the plant's healing powers and
all kinds of healing potions were made
from it As civilization advanced and
superstition decreased the mistletoe lost
its religious significance, but not its popularity.

The use of ice for heating purposes is
one of the oddities of our modern civili
zation. Often it happans that a train
carrying freight from tha south to the
northern market encounters a cold spell
while enroute. If the tamperature goes
below a certain point, the perishable
merchandise will be ruined. But it has
been asserted that such a misfortune may
be prevented by covering the fruit cai
withacoat of ice a thing easily ac
complished by turning a iiose upon it and
allowing the water to freeze until the
whole vehicle is enveloped in a glassy and
glittering blanket. It may, indaad. bt
appropriately called a blanket, inasmuc'i
as it prevents the radiation of he it from
the interior of the'ear. The ice being a
good non-conductor, the warmth is re
tained and the fruit, or possibly it may
be vegetables, goes on Its way unspoiled
even by zero weathjr. Philadelphia
