LINGUAL SLIPS AND MISSES.
A German nuthor lias matlo n.
collection of metaphors, vvliioli lio
calls pearls of tlmujrlit. Smnu of
them mo worth quoting, if only us
a warning to high-flown orators not
to allow thuir iiiiigniluquoucn to lly
away with tlium altogutlior. "Well,
sir," cried an inspitcd democrat,
"burn all our ships, and, with every
sul unfurled, steer boldly out into,
tho ocean of freedom!" Even that
flight is surpassed by an effort of
Justice Miller live, who, in 1818, in
aspeech to tho Vienna students, im
pressively declared: "The chariot
of revolution is lolling along, and
gnashing its teeth us it rolls!" A
p.in-Genuanist mayor of a Rhine
land corporation rose still higher in
nn address to the emporor. lie
said: "No Austria, no Prussia, only
one Germany; such were tho words
tho mouth of your imperial majesty
has always had in its eye!" Prof.
.Tohnucs " Scherr, in n criticism on
Lcnau's lyrics, writes: Out of tho
dark regions of philosophical pro
blems the poet suddenly let swarms
of iong dive up, carrying farll.ishing
pearls of thought in their beaks."
A German preacher, speaking of a
repentant gill, said: "She knelt in
tho temple of her interior, and
proved fervently." The German
parliamentary .oratory of tie present
day affords many examples of me
taphor mixture; but two must suf
fice. Count Fraukenburg is the
author of them. A few years ago
he pointed out to his countrymen
the necessity of "seizing the stream
of time by the forelock;" and, in tho
last session, he told tho minister of
war that if ho really thought the
French were serions'y attached to
peace, ho had better resign office
and "return to his paternal oxen."
But none of these pearls of thought
and expression in Fatherland sur
pass the speech of the immortal
Josoph Proudhomme, on beign pre
sented with a sword of honor by the
company he commanded in the
national" guard of France. "Gen
tlemen," said he, "this sword is the
brighteot day of my life." London
Queer that it should be supposed
late dinners arc the particular at
tribute of the fashionable. Many
a fashionable family dine long before
6 p. m., lint there is not a laborer who
has his dinner befoic 7. His noon
meal is simply a lunch. The actual
dinner is taken when he is home after
his work is done. By the by, how I
detest the word workingman as ap
plied exclusively to one who labors
with his hands. The severest, most
wearing woi k in the world is done
by those who never lifted a shovel
or a hammer in all their lives. The
" workingman " is a noble boy, but
when he goes about with the impres
sion that nobody docs any work but
himself he is coming it much too
