THE PITTSBURG DISPATCH, SATUEDAT, FEBRUARY 2, 1889.
And if the Woodchuck Sees His
Shadow We Shall Surely Have
SIX LONG WEEKS MORE OP WINTER
Some XoTel Facts About a. Much-Slandered
DANIEL WEBSTER'S PLEA FOR THE HOG
PTBITTEN FOB THE DISPATCH.!
To-day, February 2, is remarkable in two
ways: First, it is an important religions
feast, and second, it is popularly believed to
determine, through the instrumentality of
the groundhog, the all-important question
of whether the bitter winds and blinding
storms of winter are to continue for six
weeks longer or are to be now succeeded by
pleasant, spring-like days.
Concerning the origin of Candlemas and
the derivation of its name there is still con
siderable dispute. Some writers attribute
the institution of this feast to PopeGelasius
I. in 493. Others claim that it was origi
nated by Pope Vigilius in the year 636,
while still others state that it was first cele
brated in the year 642, during the reign or
the Emperor Justinian. Xearly all the
lathers of the church agree, however, that
like many other religious observances it was
designed by the early churchmen to replace
some heathen festivity occurring on or
about the same date, and thus to persuade
the newly converted Christians to abandon
an idolatrous for a Christian observance.
The ancient Romans were accustomed to
celebrate, at this time of year, a feast of
Proserpine, of which one ot the most im
portant features was marching in procession
with burning tapers.
FEAST OF PKOSEBPINE.
The word February (connected with Feb
ruare) denotes purification, and early in
this month the Bomans performed a cere
mony which was called the purification of
the people. "When the church changed the
Feast of Proserpine to Candlemas, it re
tained the procession and the burning of
candles and associated the occasion with the
purification of the Blessed Virgin. Bede
says "It is happy for the church to have
changed the lustrations of the heathen, held
mtne montn ot -bebtuarr, around tne neius,
for the procession with hallowed candles in
remembrance of that divine light wherewith
Christ illuminated the world, whence he
was styled by Simeon, a light to lighten the
Gentiles." The remark of Simeon alluded
to by Bede was also referred to in a procla
mation made by Henry VXLl in 1539, to the
effect that "On Candlemas Day shall be de
clared, that the bearing of candles is done
in memory of Christ, the spiritual light, of
whom Simeon did prophesy, as it is read in
the church that day. This feast is said by
some to take its name of Candlemas from
the number of lighted candles used in its
celebration, while others claim that it is so
called because on this day are consecrated
all candles for the ensuing year.
THE FEOrHETIC GEOUXD HOG.
From the very earliest ages and among all
peoples, this day has been regarded, as pro
phetic of the duration of winter, and as
singularly fruitful in omens by which its
prophecy may be read. AH are acquainted
with the popular superstition concerning
the groundhog. It is to the effect that on
the second day of February he emerges from
his burrow, where he has passed the winter
until now in a lethargic state. If the sun is
shining so that he can see his shadow he re
tires again to his hole and resumes his
slumbers for the ensuing six weeks, his
doing so being an intUlible sign that cold
weather will continue for that length of
time. If, on the contrary, the day is cloudy
and ihe sun invisible, he does not return to
his habitation, thus showing that winter is
at an end.
Familiar as is this legend, probably few
are aware that though the groundhog
(which, by the way, is not properly called
so, as we shall see hereafter), is an animal
peculiar to America, yet precisely the same
idea was associated by the ancient Ger
manic, Celtic and Gallic races, with other
animals, and that onr groundhog belief is not
only derived from pagan times, like the
Feast of Candlemas, but has existed since
the very infancy of the human race.
farcied by many as more honored in the
reach than the observance when it is stated
that the teacher is expected to spend a por
tion of this gratuity in the purchase of a
bowl of punch, with a gloss of which he
must regale each of his youthful benefactors.
There is an old Yorkshire superstition
that money or any article found on Caudle
mas Day cannot bring luck to its jiossessor
or be long retained, unless the strictest se
cresy is maintained concerning the manner
of its acquisition. If the finder mention his
good fortune he will soon lose what he
has fouud or it will entail ill-luck upon
him. In some of the western counties of
England it is customary to cut silver coins
into two equal parts and to give these
halves to friends and sweethearts upon
Groundhog Day, when they are believed to
exert some magical, mystical influence in
binding loving "hearts together. This ob
servance doubtless had its origin in the old
English custom of clipping the coin of the
realm, both as a convenient and ready
method of making change and for the pur
pose of enriching oneself with the small
quantities of gold and silver clipped from
the coins. This practice still obtains in
Mexico, as I found during my first tour of
that country some years ago. The Mexi
cans have a coin called a tlaco, whose value
is 1 cents. Desiring some of these coins
for convenience in making change, a Mexi
can will split a cent in half and glue one of
these halves to another whole cent, thus
forming a home-made tlaco, which passes
current all over the country, even the Gov
ernment receiving it as a legal tender for
WEBSTER AND THE GROUNDHOG.
Groundhog day formerly marked the
termination of the Christmas holidays,
which then began as early as October 31,
the night before All Saints' Day, or Hal
loween. But as the world progressed and
mankind found many new objects to occupy
their time and attention, the exigencies of
life imperatively demanded the curtailment
of the Christmas season to its present limits.
But of all the associations connected with
that much-slandered American citizen,
the Groundhog, and his day, there is none
which should be more familiar to all his
fellow countrymen than an anecdote of the
great Daniel Vebster, which, though known
to every schoolboy of 60 years ago, may be
new to the present generation of leaders:
A groundhog, or woodchuck, was caught
on the "Webster farm, and Daniel.thena
lad, besought his father to spare its life,
while his brother Zeke insisted it should
die. Their father said he would act as
judge, while his boys, as counsel for the
prosecution and defense, should make argu
ments for and against the prisoner, after
which he would decide his fate.
Zeke then made a powerful plea, and the
groundhog's doom was apparently sealed,
when Daniel arose, and in one of those mas
terly addresses, which afterward made him
famous, so worked upon his father's pity
and compassion, that when he had finished
the old man cried out, with tears streaming
down his cheeks: "Zeke! Zeke I you let
that woodchuck gol" F. EL "W.

E. G. DUN &. CO. RATHER DISSATISFIED
TO TEACH TEACHERS.
There is a German proverb, certainly as
old as the German nation, which is familiar
in some form, to the people of every Euro
pean country to-day, and tells a tradition of
the badger which is identical with ours con
cerning the groundhog. It runs as follows:
"The badger peeps ont of his hole on Can
dlemas Day, and when he finds snow, walks
abroad, but if he sees the sun shining, he
draws back into his hole."
Another old German proverb, also well
known in some form to the people of many
other nations, is to the effect that the shep
herd would rather see the wolf enter his
stable on Candlemas Day than the sun.
Bnt that much talked-of American citi
zen, the groundhog, is not a hog at all, us I
have already hinted, but a rodent, of the
marmot family, wnose zoological name is
arctomys monax, and whose common name
is woodchuck. He is found in all parts of
our country, from Hudson Bay to South
Carolina, and as far "West as the Eocky
It is his habit of burrowing in the ground
and the hog-like voracity with which he de
vours his food that have secured tor him
the appellation of groundhog. The hole
from which he emerges on Candlemas Day
is deeply dug in fields, on the sides of hills
or under rocks in woods. His subterranean
home is very complete, having several apart
ments and entrances. He burrows in a
slanting direction. Upward at first, with a
view to keeping nut the water.
A CUNNING ANIMAL.
The so-called groundhog has all the cun
ning of the rodent family, of which he is so
honored a member. He generally prefers
elevated locations for his home,
that he may have a clear view of
any approaching danger. As a still greater
precaution of safety while basking in the
sun or running about in search of food, he
posts some of his family or friends as senti
nels. They are very vigilant, and their
sense of hearing is remarkably acute. "When
one raises the cry of warning they all in
stantly take to flight. Being too cunning
to retire to their hole if there is any chance
of being tracked to it, they conceal them
selves among rocks or underbrush, and are
careful not to reappear until long alter all
possibility of discovery has banished.
Thongh their flesh is coarse and rank, it is
sometimes eaten, and their fur is also used.
They subsist upon plants, fruits and vegeta
bles, being especially fond of certain varie
ties of clover.
Or the superstitions, omens and folk-lore
of Candlemas or Groundhog Day, there is a
great store. They pertain not only to the
weather, but to many other things beside.
AN OLD SCOTTISH RHYME,
as old as any of the Highland clans, thus
alludes to this occasion as an omen of the
future duration of winter:
"If Candlemas Day be dry and fair.
The half o' winter's to come and mair;
If Candlemas Day be wet and foul
The half o' winter's sone at yule."
An old English rhyme deals with the
same subject as follows":
"If Candlemas Day be fair and bright
Winter will not take its flleht:
If Candlemas Day bring snow and rain
Winter will not be seen again."
In many parts of Scotland it is still cus
tomary to Kindle, as night draws on, the
"Candlemas bleeze," or blaze, a bonfire
composed of furze, when that can be ob
tained, or in the event of its absence of some
other kind of wood.
Another old Scottish custom, still ob
served to some extent and one which many
a poor American pedagogue would rejoice
to see introduced into our own country, is
for all pupils at school to make presents of
monev to their teachers on the morning of
Candlemas Day. But this custom will be re-

where there has fceen a marked improve

and shoes, in lumber, and to some extent in
hardware. At Chicago and St. Paul there
are some gains. At St. Joseph there has
been more activity, and prospects for spring
trade are good. There is a fair volume of
merchandise moving at Boston, but no un
usual activity. Elsewhere business is less
active, St. Louis reporting it to be only
"holding its own." At that city, however,
some 32,300 tons of Jig iron have been sold,

The unseasonable -ureather is complained
of at New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburg,
Detroit,Chicago and Galveston, and a share
of the backward trade is reported due to it.

prayer. In the hurricane of excitement fol

at his house that this had been a lifelong cus

Bnt Thinks the Gobble of the South Penn
Will Improve Mutters.
Nett York, February 1. E. G. Dun &
Co.'s weekly review of trade says:
Dissatisfaction with the state of trade is in
creasing, and there is general complaint as to
collections. But increasing confidence in the
new agreement of railroad Presidents tends to
support better prices for securities. Swelled
by speculation in stocks and in products, the
clearings through the banks show a much
larger volume of business in January than for
tbe same month last year, and for the last week
a gain of 17.7 per cent at all cities and 13.7 per
cent outside of New Yoik. During the past
week the public has bought and stocks have ad
vanced on the average Sill per share. The
causes of improvement arc: First, the general
assent ot railroads to the inter-State agree
ment: second, the closing of the South Penn
sylvania controversy; and, third, investment
demand for bonds and the better class of
Wheat has declined 1 cents for the week,
witb sales here of 24,000,000 bushels. Fairy
tales about stocks on hand are still circulated
by interested parties, but are met by heavy
shipments from the farms, and sales by farmers
who grow tired of waiting for 51 60 wheat
Corn and oats have stiffened a fraction. Oil
has risen c, with sales here of 6,600,000 barrels.
The cotton market has not changed as to
rices. Coffee Is only Jc stronger, and sugar
i unchanged, witb leaf firm and In good de
mand at auction. Prices for butter, cheese and
eggs have b,een depressed.
The market for iron does not Improve. Phila
delphia reports sales of 15,000 tons Southern,
and prices are about S17 for No. L against
$17 60 for Northern. Bar iron is more active
with prices not improved. Sales of steel rails
at Pittsburg are reported for 326, and an
Eastern mill has sold for Chicago delivery at
$30 GO, equal, to $27 at mill. -Coal is dull, and
the mines working short time. Copper declined
sharply, Madbb selling at 16c Tin was weaker

THE SCHOOL BOARD LOSES
In That Snlt Wherein Ono of Its Directors

Judge Gripp has finally rendered his de
cision in the case of Porter & Kelty vs the
School District of Coraopolis. The verdict
is for the plaintiffs. Mr. Cornelius, attor

This is the suit which is said to be com
plicated by the discovery that Director
