Christmas Carols Have Background Origin of \Silent Night,\ for Example, Was Unknown For Tears. GROVE Mrs. Leon Auitin, Correspondent All during the Christmas season, beautiful carols are sung, and many of these carols have interesting etorlea behind them. Probably no carol is eo universally known and loved as the simple Ger- man song, \Silent Night.\ For years its origin, was unknown, but it was thought to date-back centuries. A few years ago, it was found that this carol was produced in 1818. The poem was written by Joseph Mohr, an assistant priest in Obern- dorf, in South Germany, and the melody composed by Franz Gruber, a schoolmaster. On Christmas Eve of that year, it was sung in the church at Oberndorf. A guitar furnished the accompaniment because the organ was out-of-order. Twenty years or eo later, a family of strolling singers from the Tyrol added it to their reper- toire, and in 1S40 it was printed in Leipzig. Another Christmas carol with a story it? \Good King Wencerslas,\ who was a real personage, the King of •Bohemia from 928 to 935. The story of the song, as written, related a kind deed that the king performed for a poor peasant, and the miracle that followed. It took place on December 26, the feast day cf St. Siephen, the first Christian martyr. . The song ends with the drawing of a moral, \Ye who now will bless the poor, shall yourselves find blessing.\ When these Christinas carols are sung, they keep alive the spirit and expression thalt sUrred many folks that have gone before, and the countless numbers that will follw. Infants' and children's dres3ea will soon carry tags stating ches'l and \ length measurements a3 well as the j size by age and style number, accord- : ing to a new policy of the trade.
