III.IONS of followers of
the Christian faith over
the world are at this sea-
son making preparations
for the Easter festival,
the most important occa-
sion in the Christian calendar.
“If Christ be not risen from the
dead, then is our preaching vain,” said
Pao\ and the whole Christian struc-
ture rests upon the resurrection as Its
foundation. Without the resurrection
the hope of humanity Is gone, for only
in a living Christ Is there salvation.
The death and resurrection of Christ
are primarily involved in the keeping
of the Lenten season, which is observed
formally by the older branches of the
Christian church. The different
churches vary in their practices in
the observance of the forty days pre-
ceding Easter, but the spirit prompting
the observance Is the same in all.
Some of the Protestant churches do
not observe Lent, but many ministers
tlnd it a propitious time for evangelis-
tic effort, and In recent years some
very successful evangelistic campaigns
have been waged by Protestants In
the Inrge cities during the season of
The history of Lent has many inter-
esting passages. The severe rules of
the fast prescribed In the early days
have been greatly relaxed during the
eenturies, ns far as they apply to
Since the earliest times In religious
history fasting at times has been a
custom. The patriarchs had great
mournings and the ancient Israelites
had devotional fasts for the expiation
of sins. Moses passed forty days on
Mount lloreb in fasting and after
Israel was defeated at Al, Joshua and
the elders remained prostrate before
the ark from morning •'until evening
without eating. Christ spent forty days
in the wilderness in fasting, hut how-
ever prevalent the custom it does not
appear that either Jewish legislation
or Christ Himself, either by command
or example, ever designated any cer
tain period for fasting.
slon. ft "began with allowing In mo-
nasteries a draught of water to the
inmutes at evening after a duy of la-
bor. From this the much larger Indul-
gence was developed. The principle
that a small quantity of food, but not
taken as a regular meat, did not break
the fast, wus adopted by Thiuiaa
Aquinas, the celebrated Dominican
theologian, and in the course of cen-
turies taking of tood not to exceed
eight ounces became recognized as a
lawful custom of the church.' It took
the name of “collation” because It whs
first taken In the monasteries at the
hour at which the "Collatlones" of Ab-
bot Casslon were read aloud to the
' T '
meal. He was’ getting a bit older and
If they waited any longer he would be
So—this time nothing would happen.
Hut something did happen 1
For the third time, Just as It drew
near the moment for catching Chick
Chicken he was nowhere to be seen.
Nowhere at alL This time they made
up their minds to look for him—they
did not think of an accident or of his
huvtiig wandered o(T. But nowhere, no-
where could he be found.
Chick Chicken showed up again when
all was safe. Whether It Just happened
this way the family never knew; but,
anyway, they decided to leave ClUck
Chicken to spend the rest of his life
the barnyard—and. strange as bis
actions sound, ftils Is a true story.
In modern times the Catholic church
prescribes rules more lenient, especial-
ly for the working people who are not
prohibited from eating flesh meat ex-
cept on Fridays, Ash Wednesdays and
Saturday of lloly week, and soldiers
anil snllors in active service are dis-
pensed from ttie law of abstinence ex
ccpt on Ash Wednesday, and several
other holy days.
Aside from the fastir.g as tin ob-
servance of the Lenten season tlx
Catholic church conducts special serv-
ices at stated times and the funda-
mental doctrines of the church art
preached and other ceremonies carried
out. It Is the desire that all should
refrain from all pleasures during thi-
forty-day period and keep their mind?
and hearts upon spiritual things.
The other churches that observe
Lent dispense with the fast but stress
the period as i time for self-examinu
tlon and prayer, and recon-ecratlon
to Christ. Their members also dls
pense with ordinary worldly pleasures
during the Lenten season and observe
it us u period of extra religious effort.

THE MISSING CHICKEN
It Is certain, however, that the ex-
amples of Moses, Elias and Christ ex-
ercised a great influence upon the es-
tablishment of the Lenten season in, , .
the Christian church, and that obsm-! ™nl,‘ be waltinfi ,,Kht near the barn

It was time for ('hick Chicken to fur-

And so they went forth to entch
Chick Chicken. That, they knew,
would not be hard to do. He was al
ways right out In the barnyard, ready
to be caught, it seemed.
He was never afraid of any one and
he wouldn’t run away. Probably he

lic history and teachings, some inter-
esting facts are recited about this sea-
son, which, whatever its exact ori-
gin. has been religiously observed ev-
ery year lor at least 1,700 years.
The word Lent itself is a Teutonic
word, which has been in use since the
Anglo-Saxon period, and Is generally
used in preference to the Latin term
"Quadragesima," meaning the “Forty
days." The forty-day observance of
"Lent” is not mentioned hv the pre- j
Nlcene fathers, hut St. Athanasius of
Alexandria, after traveling over Eu-
rope wrote in 339 that a fust wus gen-
erally practiced in Europe and lie en-

As the centuries passed, there was
great diversity In the practices of keep-
ing Lent, hut from the earliest times
there was a prohibition against the eat-
ing of meat, and it was deemed espe-
cially pious to refriiln from euting eggs
or fruit with a hard covering. In t he
beginning there was no prohibition
against the “Luetlcinla," hut St. Greg-
ory In writing to St. Augustine from
England laid down the rule: "We
abstain from flesh meat and from all
things from flesh, eggs, milk and
cheese.” There were .-pedal dlspcn-
faniliy were out of doors, walking

Well, they would have Chick Chicken
this time. He certainly wouldn't be

But on the day of the dinner party,
w hen they went to entch Chick Ohlck-
