NEW YORK LETTER
New York, Jan. 11. At one of
the uptown high schools there is
a teacher of French who is a
French woman. She speaks En
glish perfectly, except that she
has not the idioms of the lan
guage, and for information in this
line she sometimes asks the girls
in her classes.
The other day she asked one of
them what might be a good idio
matic equivalent for "I under
stand." The girl, being a bad, bad
girl, replied: "I get you, Steve."
The teacher pondered a mo
ment, then said: "The 'I get you'
sounds well, but why the 'Steve'?"
The girl lost part of her nerve,
and backed up on the Steve. But.
ever since she and the other girls
have been filled with glee as they
overhear their, teacher convers
ing with the principal or some
other teacher, and ever and anon
sweetly murmuring: "I get you."
A woman saved a kitten's life
on 3d av. a few mornings ago and
good and mad it made her, too.
The kitten fell out of a third-story
tenement window and landed in
the woman's hair. The kitten
wasn't hurt a bit, but at least 500
people arrived inside of 30 sec
onds to find out what all the yell-
ing was about.
