In which thta too common dlieaae can

will kill the bacilli of catarrh and pre
vent their growth.

THE TREE ON THE ROOF.
An Old Building Custom to Propitiate
tne Pagan Gods.
Did you ever stop to think why a bit
of ornament hi tbo form of couven
tlounUxed fruit grain or Bowers is al
most Invariably added to the gable of
a Gothic building and very frequently
to the gable of auy other type of build
ing? Do you know Why tbo lightning
rods of our grandfathers were branch
ed at tbe ends like little trees and why
tbe old fashioned 8caudluuvlun. Dan
ish and German contractors contrive
to fasten a branch of a tree or an oar
of com to the topmost pouk of a house
that bus progressed so far In the course
of construction that tbe rafters are In
placer Dsunlly the contractor laughs
sheepishly when be Is asked about the
matter, giving no other reason than
that bis fnther ulwaya provided tbe
blrda with some grain or offered them
a green braucb to rest tn.
The fact Is that the birds buve nctu
log whatever to do with the custom
It is purely religious In Its stgulQcuuce
and entirely pagau. It had its begin
ulng before Christianity was "Inflicted
oh the tmrlmrinus of the north." The
gable of a building was exposed te
both wlud and lightning, so the gods
must do propitiated. Kor Wotnn there
was a small evergreen tree and for
Tlior there wus it bunch of (lowers. . If
tbo favor of the god had been Invoke.)
while the house wns still . Incomplete
tho ceremony must be finished the duj
the house was done li.v the burning or
the llttlo tree or the withered flowers
Then a bunch of grain was tied to the
gable to feed the while horse of the
death god, so tl.nt he would hasten un
bis Journey without -'stopping at that
particular bouse.- Kt. Louis (Jlolte-Dem
