viktui: or a lisp
! Ill Wince of Tract Icing lliiglldi
An exchange tells n story of n girl
who has ncquircd n new accom
plishment. A pretty girl sat between two
young men in a lfifth avenue stage.
Opposite sat the girl's mamma.
The young men were insisting, the
young woman was hesitating.
"I really caun't thay," she
laughed. "Athk mamma."
Said mamma: "Have you not
forgotton that engagement with
"Why, to be thure!" Then to
the young men. "I promilhed
thitlitcr to go with her to thwim
intng thchool thith nwftcrnoou."
Just then the stage stopped and
two middle aged women got out.
"What a pity," remarked one,
"that such a pretty girl should
have an impediment in her speech."
"Impediment!" repented the
other. "Why, that is the fashion
able lisp. My niece told me about
it the other day after I overheard
her iufprming a young man that
she had had 'thuch n gay time
" 'My dear,' I asked in some
alarm, "what in the world is the
matter with your speech?' think
ing perhaps she had broken off a
tooth or burned her tongue or
something like that.
" 'Why, auntie, nothing is the
matter,' she answered, blushing a
little. 'It is the fashion, you
know, to lisp a little. All the girls
are doing it.' ,
"That very same day I called on
a friend, whose daughter was mar
ried in Easter week, nud to my
astonishment I noticed a slight
lisp, so slight that it was hard to
locate or define it, running all
through her talk. I was so fascin
ated and interested in trying to
make out how she did it that I
kept her talking all the time, star
ing meanwhile at her mouth.
"I had about come to the con
clusion that occasionally she gave
a little twist to the end of her
tongue, sending it against her
lower teeth, when she broke off
" 'Why do you thtare at me tho
today! One would think I wath a
picture or a bit of thculpture.'
" 'I'm so interested in what you
are saying,' I replied, hastily pul
ling myself together.
'Not for worlds would I have
told her the real reason for my ob
sorption, for I found out long ago
that most people who set out to
follow a new fashian or practice an
effectatiou don't particularly enjoy
being taxed with the fact.
'I noticed in my friend's case
that she managed her lisp much
more fetchingly than my niece. It
was not so childish, so broad; it
was shaded more delicately, and,
even if serving no other purpose, it
certainly attracted attention to a
very pretty mouth.
"That afternoon I started out
make a round of calls and before
night I ran across many cases of
the lisp, and since then I never
enter a restaurant or a shop or
even a public conveyance, like that
Fifth avenue stage, without being
reminded of the new fashion."
A woman who is actively socially,
who has two growing daughters to
keep her up to date and who has
traveled much, gives this explana
tion of the lisp:
"It is the outcome, I think, of a
desire to counteract or soften the
epidemic of broad English pronun
ciation which has prevailed in the
highest fashionable New York
circles for the last few years," she
said. "Not long ago an English
man said to me that when the New
York girl went in for Knglish pro
nunciation and inflection she could
out-English the English. And she
"At one time a good deal of fun
was poked at the American twang

London, Nov. 9 "Do you cspcr
nnl?" or, more properly rendcied,
"Cu vi parolas iuteinacie?" is be
coming quite a common question
in Loudon since the conclusion of
the international esperanto congress
The congress has caused quite a
boom in the baby language, and the
esperantists arc taking every ad
vantage of it.
Hawkers in the streets arc briskly
selling a little red book entitled
"How to Speak Kspcranlo, the
Auxiliary Language of the Na
tions." It costs a penny and con
tains the full grammar and quite
an imposing vocabulary It pre
dicts that the student will be able
to learn the grammar in an hour,
read the language with facility in a
month, write it with facility in two
months and speak it with facility
in three months.
The elevator boy, Ercckleton, of
the Law Land Company in Surrey
street, who, owing to his fluency in
esperanto, was taken to the Bou
logne congress, is now the envy of
all of the other elevator bovs of
Loudon, many of whom are enthu
siastically studying the language.
Mr. Sexaucr, the Secretary of the
Rritish Esperanto Association, is in
daily receipt of hundreds of letters
which come from all parts of Great
Ilritain and Ireland written by per
sons anxious to learn the language.
A large proportion of the applica
tions arc from teachers, but the
letters nre written by people in all
walks of life.
It is now computed that there
arc 250,000 persons in the world
who can speak the language, and
many thousands more who are
studviuiz it at the nrcsent time.
An Attack or Croup Warded Oir.
"Our little girl, two and one-half
years old, woke up coughing with
the croup one evening recently.
We happened to have some of
Chamberlain's Cough remedy on
hand and gave her two doses of it.
She went back to sleep and woke
up next morning without a trace of
cold. It is certainly a great medi
cine," says A. J. Luginbill, editor
of Star, Villa Rica, Georgia, U. S.
A. An attack of croup can always
be warded off by giving this remedy
as soon as the croupy cough ap
pears. It has been in use for'many
years and has never been known to
fail. It contains no harmless drugs
and may be given to the smallest
child with perfect confidence. For
