The Word "Jolly."
'On tlie adoption of the word "jolly"
Into the Engllsli.it had tthe meaning of
'beautiful, as it lias ninoiig tlie French
today.   The  I_ngli_h 'dramatist  Heitu-
imont (ft'the sixteenth 'century speaks
'���f our first mother its"'.lie jolly Eve."
iln time, however, it <_ttnc to mean lii-
llurious, regardless of physical beauty.
But thia hitter meaning is probably
the right one after all, as tiie word
j doubtless comes from Yule (Yu-le), the
1 pagan Christmas, go to speak, for be it
j known mat what wc now observe ns
I Christinas day wns a heathen holiday
! 'called Yule, and the Yule festival was
'one of noisy demonstration.
Q_ule -iadeed means noise or outcry,
