RED FOR MOURNING. I There can be no doubt but that in the Dark and I part of the Middle Ages red and not black was the favourite mourning colour throughout Europe. Even down to the end of the fifteenth century the change I from blood-red to black was not complete, though I black cloaks were worn over red clothing. In Abyssinia the mourning colour is a reddish-brown. In Turkey it is violet, a colour closely allied to red. It is a curious fact tha.t among the Maoris of New Zealand red is the hue of sorrow. In earlier times, mourners daubed their bodies with red juices when they followed a chief to his grave, and even the resting-places of the bodies were also coloured red.
