Al any rata, long year ago, before
the greater part of English history
wa acted and written, tha country
laasea and lad of England believed
that all the saucy sparrows, singing
larka and brown partrldgea plighted
their troth on St. Valentines day, the
1 to or February.
Yaleatlae a Martyr.
Little I known of the patron aaint
of lovers beyond the tradition that the
holy Valentine lived and Buffered
martyrdom In tha thirl century. It la
told thai tha aalnt effected tha cure
of a blind girl, whose father bad been
charted by Emperor Claudius with the
conversion of St. Valentine to Chris
tianity. Through prayer and faith the
saint worsted the pagan and converted
him instead. For this the good aalnt
of sweethearts wa led to the block.
It I difficult to trace the relation
between bt life and tha custom that
honor It by observance. Perhaps in
merrle England, whence spring so
many of tba olden rites, St- Valentine's
day found It origin.
Not wishing to be shamed by the
