In the lake land f northern Kn gland
there la a well-known case of a. r
that has been kept up for three genera
tlona.. When It accidentally wnt out
th householder went to soro wood cut
ters who had righted their fir from hla,
says th London Dally News, . and
brought back their fir to hi own
hearth In order that he might possess,
as It were, ths seeds of hla ancestral
flro. Undoubtedly thl arises from ths
old belief that the house fir I derived
from - sacred source. Then there are
many house fir whloh are .kindled
from ceremonial flrea one a - year.
Thua at Burghaad all th flrea are
lighted from the "burning clavle,' and
kept alight continuously during t be
year. It being considered lucky to keep
th flam from the . cluvl all tha rest
of th year. This clavle waa lighted
first ef all at a fir of peat mad by
youth of th village who wer sons of
th original Inhabitants. Ivery strang
er was rigidly excluded from tn cere
mony and peat only could be used. '
Th ceremony takas placemen New
Tear's v, and after th clavl haa been
kindled on youth after another bear
it In triumph around the. bounds ef ths
village. At certain houses and. street
corner a halt la mad and a brand Is
whipped out of the burning clavle and
thrown among the' crowd, who aagsrly
catch ita ember and from them kindl
th flrea on their hearths. . Finally th
remains of tb clavl are placed In the
center hollow of a pile of atonea, called
tha "durle," and tba remaining embers
are distributed to the villager, all pf
whom attend the eeremonr.
... anothercurloue feature of th tibrv-
anc Is that th long nail wbloh fasten
th staves of ths clavle Is mada of Iron
by thai village smith, but tha hammer
must be a round atone. Such Importance
ia attached to th ceremony that it the
bearer should stumbl daring th per
ambulation of. the village it is looked on
as a dire calamity, foretelling disaster
to th plae and certain death to th
'bearer in th coarse of th next year.
Thar are quit a number of cere
monial flrea lighted on St John the
Baptist's ova. In Nottinghamshire part
of th Tul log Is kept till th follow
ing; year, to bo burned upon the next
Cbrlstmaa eve. Th method Is first to
put a bit of last year's log into the fire
place and burn It than th fresh log
muat be put on th fir and allowed to
bum for a little while. It ia tben taken
off and burned a little every' night nntll
New Tear eve, when it la put on tha
fir and consumed, with the exception
of a portion which is kept in th houee
tintll next Chriatmss day. It ia be
lieved thst tha observance of this ous
otm will "keep the witch away."
In Cornwall the practice obtain of
resorting 'to the hearth and touching
tba crave!' (the mantel atone acroaa tha
head of an open chimney) with th fore
head, and easting- into the fir a hand
ful of dry grass or. anything .'picked
up that will burn. TMb-J1 form of
"hearth sacrifice Is regarded as the
most effectual means of averting any
impending evils of a mysterious nature.
All thee oustome. In -various ways,
are derived from the sacred character
with which our ancestors Invested fire.
