I By Dr. James P. Kinard of Winthrop
College Will. Be Offered 'the
Board for Adoption for Use
In Public Sdhools.
The following criticism of Dr. Kin.
ard's book was printed in the State,
Dr. Kinard is a Newberrian and hi
book has met with favor by teaclierF
who have reviewed it.
If the pupils now in our public and
private schools do not, learn the grain
Imar of their language and somnething
about writing and speaking it easily
and correctly it will not be the fault
of the book-makers. In an era dis
tinguislhed by its masterly disregard
of authority of every sort and for ite
egregiously bad English, when even
the graduates of our universities can
not write correctly and sinewy idiom,
we witness the phenomenon of a flood
of books designed to teach the correct
use of our language. It is to be ques
tioned wlhethier this is mere coinci
dence, whether the' books are coming
as a response to the demand that the
users of English be held to stricter
responsibility, or whether there is any
relation between the slip-shod writing
of the day and the multiplicity of
guides. It may be, after all, that the
confusion in th'e present usage of
writing and speaking English may be
due to the multitude of counselors,
which is proverbially held to be per
But that there are being published
many excellent guides to the writing
and speaking of our language there
'can-be no doubt. One of these is thig
little ''English Grammar for Bb
ginners." The preface says, "it is a
real grammar fQr beginners''-but
the order of the words in this short
sentence leaves' the reader in doubt
as to its meaning. Is it a ''real gram
mar,'' or is it for ''real beginners?'
What is meant seems to be that it is a
grammar really for beginners. The
following ''points'' are especially no
''[t is a real grammar for begin
''It. contains an unusually large
number of illustrative sentences.
''By arranging the illustrative sen
tences in parallel columns, and in the
general development of each sub
ject, the author has made an effective
use of the inductive method.
"In complex and compound sen
tences a helpful combination of anal
ysis and short parsing" (is 'short
parsing' good English? Does not
the author mean the parsing of short
sentences or phrases; and should he
not say so?) "is made by the use of a
system of simple diagraming."
The principal value of th grammar
is, we think, its very admirable meth
od, which is thoroughly practicable
and yet is designed to gain and hold
the attention of the pupil. The lan
guage 'is taught as an harmonious
whole from the very beginning, whieb
is (lie proper way. For instance, on
the very first page the pupil is given
some insight into the nature of the
unit of English speech, the sentence
a thing that some of our ''popular"
-writers have difficulty in recognizing.
This practical method is maintained
throughout, and makes the book one
of time most valuable little text-books
on the subject that we have seen.
A very useful chapter is added on
the use of ''shall'' and ''will,'' and
''should'' and ''old' Readers
of the daily papers will recall the re
e ent discussion of thme error of Presi
dent Roosevelt in the use of ''will'
for ''shmil'' making three or fomi
blunders in the course of a short let
ter. This is one of 'thme crosses of
English idiom, and should be studied
as soon as possible. The real, dis
tinction between ''shall'' and ''will'
-practically the same as that betweer
''should'' and ''would'' is not of ape.
cial difficulty, but it is difficult tc
blend precept and example in off-hand
speech. The illustrations given make
the different usage very clear..
In typography and in arrangement,
not less than in subject Anatter aind
-the tremendous wvealth of apt illustra
tion, the book is excellent.

No Kowtowing For Him.
They tell this one on former Gov.
George Hoadly, of Ohio:
Once upon a time, in the midst of a
campaign, Mr. Hoadly was to deliver
a speech at a little town in the great
an( glorious Buckeye state. When he
reached the one hotel the town boast
ed lie walked up to the register and
wrote his name. The proprietor-head
porter-steward--head- waiter depot
runner was behind the desk in his
sleeves, his hat on the back of his
head, and a cigar stump held between
his teeth. When the visitor had put
down his John Hancock, the factotum
turned the register around, read with
out the flicker of an eyelid the name
there written, wrote ''10'' beside it
with a lead pencil, and said:
''You kin jest take yCr grip right
up that stairway there an' back down
the hall clean to th' end. Yer room's
right on th' left hand side of th'. hall,
in th' corner-number 10.'
With considerable astonishment
and not a little injured dignity Ohio's
chief executive pointed to his name,
smiled faintly, and said:
"I am George Hoadly."
''Yep; I notice,'' said the rustic
without turning a hair. ''An' yer
room's right there at th' end of th'
hall-number 10. Can't miss it.''
With more hauteur, and almost
quivering with outraged importance
the guest said impressively:
"I am George Hoadly, governor of
the state of Ohio!''
Turning, then, with a look of exas
perated impatience on his face, the
hotel man exclaimed:
"Well, what d'ye expect me t' do
