1IOW A ?APE I IS MADE.
"Pray, how is a paper made ?"
The question is easy to ask,
But to answer it fully, my dear,
Were rather a difficult task;
And yet in a bantering way,
As the whip-poor-will sings in the glade,
I'll venture a bit of a lay
To tell how a paper is made.
An editor sits at his desk,
And ponders the things that appear
To be claiming the thoughts of the world
Things soiemn, and comic, and queer
And when he has hit on a theme
He judges it well to parade,
He writes, and he writes, and he writes,
And that's how a paper is made.
An editor sits at his desk,
And puzzles his brain to make out
"Telegraphic" so squabbled and mixed,
It is hard to tell what it's about.
Exchanges are Iving around,
While waiting dispatches delayed,
He clips, and he clips, and be clips,
And that's how a paper is made.
An editor out in the town,
In search of the things that are new
The things that the people have done,
The things they're intending to do
Goes peering and prying about,
For items of many a grade;
He tramps, and he tramps, and he tramps,
And that's how a paper is made.
And all that those workers prepare,
Of every conceivable stripe,
Is sent to the printer, and he
Proceedeth to stick it in type.
His lines, all respecting his will,
In slow-moving columns parade
He sticks, and he sticks, and he sticks,
And that's how a paper is made.
In short, when the type is all set,
4Ld errors cleared up more or less,
'Tis "locked in a form," as'they say,
And hurried away to the press.
The pressman arranges his sheets,
His ink gives the requisite shade,
Then he prints, and he prints, and he prints,
And that's how a paper is made.
I NAMELESS GOVERNESS,
A sunset on the sea, the blue

radiance, and a girl standing'

tender, smiling lips-a girl scarce

And while-she stood there, Den

handsome youth, who love~d this
brown-eyed girl better, far better,
than over his life.
Who she was, this lo'vely, am

all that could be gathered was
that seventeen years before a wo
man, young and fair, had come to
the cottage of .Denzil Orme's
father, and had aske'd shelter for
herself and her dark.eyed baby-a
shelter that was freely given-and
the poor young mother had died

you know how we shall miss you
at the fairm ?'
'Only for a little while, Decnzil;
for I will come back to see you so
often that you will barely miss me
at all. Mother will miss me most,
'Mother miss you ngost ! Eve I

Eve-I cannot let you go ! Eve'

'Oh, Denzil, Denzil, 1-1 am so

'I mean it, Eve. I love you,

pale, then with an effort he re

them, broken first by Denzil

Without a word she unfiastened
the dainty cluster, then, raiSing
them to her lips, she kissed them,
and laid them in his hand.
A little later Philip Fenton
came down to the sea-shore
handsome, haughty Philip Fen
ton, whom this girl first idealized,
then learned to idolize with all
the fervor of her heart.
'I am going early to-morrow,
Philip,' she said.

The smile on her lips deepened
o one of scorn as she read, for

JUDOE PRESSLEY AS AN ETYMOL
o1ST.-During the court last week
one attorney referred to another's t
speech as being "lengthy," quali

"if such a word is good English."
Judge Pressley remarked, "It is
not good English. You bad as s
well say 'breadthy' for broad as
'lengthy' for long."-Newberry e
In spite of the eminent authority
on the law, we bog to differ with
the Judge and to say that the em:
ployment of the word is in strict
compliance with lexicographical
sanction. It seems to us to be
rather 'gratuitous for a Judge to
pass sen tence upon words from 8
the bench in view of the. graceless
ness of ad captiandum-(Sic) crit

and the Judge did right to con
demn it as "not good English."
It is not enough that the Crescent
should say that "the employmenq
of the word is in strict com
phance with ioxicographical sanc
tion." We cannot consider that t
argument as sufficiently strengthy
-a word we coin for the especial
uco of the Crescent. "Lexicographi
cal sanction" is not the bighest
law of good English, and the
Crescent must look over and be
yond its "Webster's Unabridged'

Fudge to pass sentence upon f
vords from the bench." A Judge ~
s not a school master to teach the '
>ar good English, but .it is meet a~
~nd proper in him, especially ei
rhen, as in this ease, he is asked if d
word is good English to give his '
pinion as a scholar. The best ti
udges of law have always been b
udges of good English. Black- g
tone is as high an authority in si
nglish language as he is in En- r
~lish law. We are glad to see'
gain Judges on the bench who a)
ow what good English is. A ni
cw years ago good English was w
nknown on the bench in Soutb 01
aroli na, and the Judges knew as p
ittle about the English language fr
s about English law. WVe then sc
eard a Republican Judge sp)eak of ot
ome evidence as "ominious." rThe ti
ame Judge, in charging a grand in
Lry, spoke to them of some public i;
ificers who were not "fitten for tU
heir office." "
Judge Pressley is not the first s&
outh Carolina Judge who, while B
itting on the bench, cultivated in
teaue and was ready on oc- t.
asion to correct the mistakes of
rembers of the bar who offended
gainst the Queen's English.
udgc Wardlaw, for example, was
ot only a learned jurist but a
areful scholar, who took as mueb
ains to be pure in his Ecnglish as
o be accurate in his legal know
,dge. While no Judge ever lis
ened more attentively and pa
iontly to the argument of coun
cil, his ear was quick to catch the
ianner as well as the matter. A
urist in English himself, he de
cghted to observe the niceties of

se nor mispronunciation of words
We differ also from the Beau
)rt Crescent in Supposing that the
brase "to differ with" is correctly
sed in the paragrah we quote.
rood English prefers "differ from"
t such a sense. The Beaufort
ritic will understand us when we
ay we differ with Judge Presslev
rom the Beaufort Crescent. We
iigbt criticise our Beaufort critie's
wn English still furtber, but al
eady our article is rather long,
r as he would say, "lengthy." We
vould only ask if it is not rather

ittle judicial ple;s,ntry ? Let the
ench and the bar have just a lit
1 fun to relieve the tedium of the
ourt room and bring a gleam of
unshine into "the dusty purlieus
f the law."-Abbeville Press and
We clip froq the Press and
a very interesting dis
tssion which has arisen upor an
biter dictum of Judge Pressley as
o the good English of the word
lengthy." The Judge holds: "It
3 not good English. You had as
vell say, breadthy for broad as
engthy for long." So reports the
Tewberry Rerald. To which the
3eanfort Cres.ent takes exception,
Sit is in turn criticised by the
"rees and Banner. Wo do not
retend to be & belles-ilettres ex
uisito, yet, without. desiring to
e a "lengthy" advocate, we con
end that there is very good au
hority for the use of the word.
Whilst Webster is far from being
onsidered good'authority in South
larolina, he, however, accredits
'reorge Washington with the
brase, "Lengthyi periods." Gi b
on says - "For more lengthy and
riginal dissertations," &c. Lord
~yron says: "Murray will send a

ngthy additions," &c. Jefferson
~ys - "These would be details
>O lengthy." Pope is accredited
ith the use of the word "length
l," now obsolete. When Judge
ressley' observes tbat we migh t
s well say "breadtby," he loses
ght of the fact that mere anai.
,or the want of it, has no c'on
-oIling force in the English lan
nage. T he Press and . Banner
Jlls into the same error whilst
ery properly stating that the
oglish is a language depending
a authority. Again, "lengthf"
es not convey the same mean
gas "long." Lengthy means
znoderately long-not -merely
aig. The English use the word
ongish," which is another mnodi
3ation of tbe word long. From
.ere analogy there is no reason
hy we should not say "lengthy"
well as "handy." We are in- t
ined to think our word "long" is
arived from the Latin "longu~s," ~
bilst our word "length" is from
te Anglo-Saxon "length," and
