. The language of flowers: or, Floral emblems of thoughts, feelings, and sentiments ... Flower language. MOCK ORANGE. its substance. The Druids had a sort of adoration for a weakness so superior to strength. This master of the oak appeared to them to be equally formidable to men and to gods. Balder, son of the goddess Friga, was invulnerable through her powerful conjurations. His principal enemy, however, discovered that she had overlooked the Mistletoe, and during the fight of the gods, he came to the blind Heder, and desired him to aim at Balder, presenting him with a piece of the plant. Heder hurled the branch, and Balder fell lifeless. Thus was the invulnerable son of a goddess killed by a Mistletoe branch thrown by one blind. Such is said to be the origin of the reverence shown to this shrub by the Gauls. Longfellow sings of this, " Balder the Beautiful is dead, is dead. ***** All things in earth and air bound were by magic spell Never to do him harm ; even the plants and stones ; All save the Mistletoe, the sacred Mistletoe ! Hasder, the Wind old god, whose feet are shod with silence. Pierced through that gentle breast with his sharp spear, by fraud Made of the Mistletoe, the accursed Mistletoe !" MOCK ORANGE (Philadelphus coronarius).—FRATERNAL Affection. One of the Ptolemies, Kings of Egypt, made himself worthy of the highest.regard by the love he showed for his brother. A kind of syringa has been consecrated to his 140.
