Sunday and registered at the Palace
Getting ready for tho Easter Monday egg-hunt In Grant Park Atlanta. Tha
park gates have been closed for tho morning and men are driving about
tho grounds scattering thousands of candy eggs In all directions. At a
certain fixed time the gates are opened and the children pour In to search
for the treasure.
HE origin of Easter la lost
In antiquity: The flr8t.tra.co
.of It Ib as a!" pagan rite
celebrated la Tionor of
Eastre the Saxon goddess
of spring. Then it became
identified with the Jewish passovor.
and about 08 A. D. was Instituted as
a Christian festival.
There are many quaint customs in
celebration of Easter in countries
where superstition still holds sway
over the .minds of the people. In
Spain Portugal and most of South
America Judas the betrayer plays
a prominent part in the proceedings
of Easter and Holy Saturday Is a day
which is devoted almost entirely to
maltreating his efilgy
. Execution of Judao.
On Good "Friday the Bhopkeepers are
busy all day selling Judases of every
size and shape by the dozens to men
Women and children; and on the fol-
lowing morning the whole community
is transposed into a place of execu-
tion. Ropes are stretched across the!
streets from house to house and on
them are strung JudaBps tilled with
straw and gunpowder black and very
ugly as they sway In tho sunlight.
A few minutes beforo 12 o'clock;
there Ib n hush over all the place and;
then as tho church bolls toll out the
noon hour a suddeuifrenzyrieizett-tUe;
people and every Judas is cut down
and hurled Into flames amid wild
shouts of rejoicing and pandemonium
In Cuba and other Spanish-American
countries there is a curious cus-
tom which almost outrivals those ot
other places. At an appointed hour
on Easter morning the cathedral
doors are thrown open for the resur-
rected Saviour to pass out. This is a.
waxen figure of Christ (with open
wounds exposed) seated upon a
draped platform beneath which may
be seen the legs of the score of monks
who carry it Following is a long line
of priests bearing crosses and many.
This odd procession passes down
the aunlit street until at a given point
it is met by a second figure borne on
the shoulders of four priests. This
represents a woman dressed In the
most gorgeous finery. It is Mary Mag
dalene coming to meet her Lord after
Like tho Biblical 8tory.
There is a sudden halt of both fig
ures and then Mary turns and has
tens away the elRht legs beneath
galloping furiously in order that It
may' be seen how fast tho ropentantj
one is hurrying to spread tho news of
the risen Christ. As Bhe goes she Is
met by a third figure decked in yel
low satin and crowned with gold and
this Ib the Virgin Mary. The two
pause and then turn to meet the ad-
vancing Saviour. When they do reach
him they bow repeatedly and then
the procession solemnly returns to tho
church passing through rows of sol-
diers who aB they enter Its doors
ilre'A salute and tho muslo ends with
a great flourish.
In this modern and progressive
world this quaint custom seems most
primitive but the glamor of it all
brings such jpy to these people that
a sojourner with them at this season
cannot but bo impressed with their
' Tho ceremony of holy lire within
tho Church of the Holy Sepuloher
Palestine Is a very'remarkable prac-
tice and one against which the pope
vigorously protests but the Greek
church declares it is an annually re-
curring miracle. On Holy Saturday
with the church crowded almost to
."""fauTfocation all lights are extinguished
and ono of tbo Greek patriarchs opens
the service by circling three times
around the sopulchor followed by tho
bishops (all of -them clad in rich
robeB) all praying fervently that the
firo may be sent down from heaven.
Tho Blessed Flame.
Tho Patriarch then ontors the sep
ulcher alone and for a moment all
Is dark when suddenly through b
holes in the wall light appears and
tho priests standing in front of them
hand In candles. These they receive
again lighted and they are sent by
chosen messengers to Bethlehem Naz-
areth and all over Palestine. As they
pass through the congregation to the
church door there Is a mad ruBh to-
wnrd them each member of tho vast
assemblage striving to light hla can-
dle with the blessed name.
There is legend of a" crusador from
Florence who finding himself ono
Easter at Jerusalem joined tho throng
who lighted their tapers at the sa-
cred flame within tho Holy Bopulcher
church. Anxious to bring this baclcj
to hlB natlvo town unextinguished to;
protect it from the wind he rode tho
whole of tho land Journey on a don-.
key with his faco to its tall.
The devil tried but unsuccessfully
to blow it out and on his arrival
home tho taper was still alight.
Thereupon he presented it to the city
of Florence only claiming as his priv-
ilege to be the first to take n light A
from it on Holy Saturday.
Another of Palestine's practices is
the pilgrimage on Monday of Holy
week to the River Jordan. At the Pil-
grims' ford are congregated thousands
and tens of thousands of Christians
who in the gray light of dawn pour
down upon the river on foot and
horseback straining every nerve to'
get to th e waters quickly where upon
arrlvlng.jtbey splash In- dipping them-
B.elyes three times in honor of the
Trinity. After filling bottlea and
flaskB with the consecrated water
they .hasten afway. f.
