CHICAGO HI \ 1,1.(1 TO PKKVAll
Perhaps the audacity of a Univers
ity of Chicago professor was needed!
for the claim that Chicago ls destined
lo Bet the future standurd of Ameri
can speech. At any rate, Prof. Thomas
A. Knott of the Windy City university
makes Ulai very claim. And his ar
gument is plausible.
At present, says Prof. Knott, wc
have distinct dialects-the New Eng
land, the .New York, the Southern, the
middle western and the western-bul
we have no generally accepted stand
ard of spoken English. Literary per
lons may accept the Boston standard;
New York control of thc theatrical
business has served lo impress its
standard on the country through stage
speech ; but there is as yet nc. author
ity of usage and pronunciation ac
cepted by the whole country.
"There is a 'tendency," he says, "In
the middle west, particularly in
Chicago, where men of all dialec t? are
coming together, to form a composite
dialect throughout this section. And
lt is likely that when this unformed
compromise dialect has been more
uniformly established, Its standards of
pronunciation omi grammar will be
comn the standard of the common
place spoken language."
lt will not be a system of speech
imposed by any class of superior cul
ture. Much of the language of tho
farm, tho slum and tho workshop
"will become a part of the dialect of
the higher classes." It Is the common
people ithat build a language, rather
than tho cultured. The upper classes
?Imply tinner and carpenter the liv
ing speech, and try to restrain and
regulate lt, usually with poor Biiccess.
Prof. Knott even thinks that "ketch"
and "pertly" and "r?sale" and many
other forms for which cultured chil
dren rebuke their Ignorant parent*
are likely to bo recognized OB good
words some day.
J.t seems natural enough that the
final merging of dialects should take
place in and around Chicago, where
East, West North and South came
together, and thc melting pot of races
is always bubbling. Hut what a loss
of prestige for the proud old East!
OUR VACANT LAND.
There's still room in this country
for tho pioneer. Tho government
land omeo reports 279,644,000 aerea
still "unappropriated and unreserved,"
of which more than half luis been sur
veyed and ?B ready for entry. More
than 11,000,000 acres were taken up
last year by homestead and other en
tries and sales to individuals. At
that rate the remaining land will last
a good many years yet. And when lt's
all gone, there's 300,000,000 acree
more in Alaska.
Of course a great deal of this va
cant area ls worthless mountain, des
sert or swamp which man will in nil
probability never be able to utilize.
Nevertheless a good deal fo lt is thor
oughly worth taking. And many a

HILL NUMBER SIXTY
OF PECULIAR INTEREST
Duyiktrk, France,? Aug. 20.-(As
sociated Press Correspondence.)
Tlie present position at ililli 50, which
the British military authorities re
cently -admitted had lapsed hack into
German possession, is peculiar and ot
great' interest? . , : "T". ..,
The hill is really nothing but a
kfcjoll of gently. rJmng ground that '
forms the end of fae Klein^Zilicbeke
ridge. The German trenches, run
in a double (tier along the. crest and
upper slope, while the* "> british
trenches form an irregular Une along
the.edge of the lr,wer' slope. The
Gor'mariB aire at the top of the hill,
while the British are a little way up ?
the side ot it.
Tho whole face ot tho hill presents
a picture .of the wildest confusion.
Everywhere are huge craters, the re
sult of mine explosions on the night
of the British attack. Torn and gap
ing sandbags are scattered in profu
sion, broken rifles, odds and ends ot
equipment ot all kinds, smashed barb
wire, and a mass of other debris lies
in bewildering variety down the hlll
.stde, the whole half-hidden In tho
long.gress that has sprung up be
tween the trenches.
The trenches twist and .wind.In .a re
markable manner.' At pne point there
is an old communication trench run*,

and down this two barricades harre

and one on the Oer man side. Here*
the opposing forces coma within six
yards of each other. Between the
rival barricade.'! there stretches a
?hort patch of ground shut lu on eith
er band by the crumbling walls ot
the old trench.
At one spot a railway bridge spans
the British position, sind In the, cut- -
ting beneath it a targe pool ot stag
nant water has collected. Beyond lt
stretches the railway line, the rafts
torn and twisted, and partly covered
with the weeds growing beteen the
ties. The Une is under direct tire
from th?-? German lines, and to cross it
in the open would mean certain deaf a
