More than 400 years ago Mother
Shipton's prophecy was made. Her
wonderful book has leng since been
cut of print.
The following, which is known as
•Mother Shipton's Prophecy," is said
to have been first published in 1488,
and republished in 1641. It will be
noticed that all the events pred.cted,
except that of the last two lines, have
already come to pass.
Carriages without horses shall go,
And accidents fill the world with woe;
Arour.d the world thought shall fly
In the twinkling of an eye!
Water shall yet wonders do,
Now strange, yet shall be true.
The world upside shall be,
And gold found at root of tree.
Through hills man shall ride.
And no horse or ass be at his side.

Mother Shipton was born in
Knavesborough, says tradition, and
was generally regarded as a witch,
the popular belief being that she sold
he* soul to the evil one in return for
the power of lifting the veil shroud-
ing the future. Although universally
believed to be a leader in black art,
she died quietly in her bed, and in the
church yard near by a headstone bore

With the matin'-time delight,
W hen the sun is gettin' stronger
And the days are gettin' longer,
An' the fish begin to bite.
Seems as lazy,

As a feller
When his evenin' chores are done,
Where's he's goin'
With his fishin' pole, all right,
When the sun is gettin' stronger
An' the days are gettin' longer,
An' the fish begin to bite.

That'll grip 'you jest like this;
Can't outgrow it,
Don't you know it?
Then you don't know what you miss. |

Well, you're wishin'

When the sun is gettin' stronger
An' the days are gettin' longer |
An' the fish begin to bite.

Her prophecies shall still survive,
And ever keep her name alive."
It is said that each morning in her
life was signalized by the utterance
of some remarkable prediction of
weal or woe to her neighbors or her
country. To Henry VIII. she foretold
his suppression of the monasteries,
his marriage with Anne Boleyn, Wol-
«ey's downfall and death, and the
fagot fires of Smithfield. To Elizabeth
she also made equally true • predic-
tions, and also to King James. It is
iecorded that in her last public utter-
ance Mother Shipton gave forth the
following prediction, which has been
thought to have reference to the

American citizen, "Our Mothers" are
a source of deepest love and inspira-
tion—upon whom must fall the
greatest sacrifices. To our mothers
we owe our patriotism, our religion,
our best aspirations.
It is especially fitting at this time
that we pay tribute to the mothers
of America. Therefore, I, R. L. Wil-
liams, governor of the state of Okla-
homa, do designate and set apart the
second Sunday in May (the 13th) as
Mothers' day, requesting that the
people assemble on that day in their
homes, churches or public places,
and by appropriate ceremonies pay
a tribute of love and reverence to
the mothers of our country.
Given under my hand and the great
seal of the state this, the 30th day of
April, in the year of our Lord, one
