Death of Mrs. W. H. Blats.
Mrs. Rebecca Blats, wife of Mr Wil
liam H. Blats, died at her home, 934
Cline street, Monday morning, the
24th, at 20 minutes to 1 o'clock. She
had been in poor health for several
months, but her condition was not re.
garded as serious until a physician
was called in a few weeks ago, and
found that she was suffering with a
pronounced case of pellagra; for
which there -seems to be no known
remedy. The latter part of her ill
ness she suffered a great deal, but was
patient and uncomplaining in her af
fliction. Mrs. Blats- was 52 years of
-age and had no children. ..She was a
consistent member of the First Bap
tist church and had a large circle of
friends in Newberry. The funeral ser

Dick Naylor, in Home and Farm.
The bombastic style of metaphor*
that used to amuse the young folks in
our good parents' time is not much'
in vogue today. It seems to have I
been supplemented by the slang expres
sions so popular of late years. There
was much amusement, however, to be
had from the old high-falutin expres-]
sions of our ancestors, although they
are sometimes made to appear quite1
ridiculoEs, as, for example, in the case1
of the pedantic young school teacher1
Iwho, with much dignity and show of
erudition. requested Miss Mary Jones
to "kindly curtail the superfluities of
the nocturnal luminary".
-As this high-sounding request wasL
too big a job for Mary's mind to as
similate, the pedagogue finally had to
give it to her n a smaller change by
asking her to snuff the candle.
"The Widder Thompson", who ran a~
boarding-house for some college boys,
sometimes had trouble in comprehend
ing the wishes of her bombastic board
ers. She finally "caught on". however,
to young Smithers' meaning when he
asked her to ''please circulate some of:
he alimentary viands in the vicinity a
>f my station," and passed him an as- tl
;ortment of edible preparations; but d
Smithers almost gave her -nervous 9
)rostration once. That was when the I
butt.r was out of his reach and the
bread was very dry.
"Iadam," he said, in his most per
suasive tone, "please be so kind as to
place within easy access of my digital
extremities the oleaginous concrete
essenc3 of lacteal fluid, with which to f
lubricate the staff of life."
Many of the older readers of Home
and Farm remember what pleasure
they used to get out of the old "con
versation cards." If a young man de
sired to converse with a young lady,
he would hand her a card bearing the
printed question: "May I have the
exquisite pleasure of revolving the
hub of my loquacity around the axle
tree of your comprehension ?"
Perhaps the young lady, to carry
out the spirit of fun and frolic, would
hand him a card reading something;
"The pendulum of your inquiry ocill
ates beyond the clock case of my men
tality;" or, in simple language, "I do
not unde'rstand you; you are beyond
One of the old conversation cards
was intended for the timid youth who
wished to accompany some pretty girl
to her home. It bore the question:
"May I have the extreme felicity of
escorting you to your domiciliary lo
cation?" The girl could answer yes by
handing him a card reading:
"My answer to your interrogatory is
contained in the comprehensive affirm
ative monosyllable," meaning the word
"yes," of course. "The co mprehen
sive ~ negative monosyllable, "no,"
could be used in case she refused his
"In the infinitessimal subdivision of
time", as the card language for "in a
moment", just as "that removes the
dilapidated linen from the infantile
tree," as equivalent to saying, "that
takes the rag off the bush."
To tell one: "You have the wrong
infantile porcine quadruped by the
auricular organ," simply meant: "You 1
have the wrong pig by the ear;" or, in
other words: "You have made a mis
Smithers' spiel about the butter was
sometimes varied into a rebuke for a
presumptuous "smart Alec," thus:
"You seem not to comprehend upon
which side of your staff of life the
oleaginous concrete essence of lacteal
fluid is disseminated," which simply
informed him that he did not know
which side of his bread was buttered.
Some of the flings of the old conver
sation cards were even more severe
and emphatic than the last named.
For example, if a. lady had a special
repugnance for some too persistent
gentleman, she could convey her sen
timents to him upon a card reading:]
"Please take your departure to the
reverberating echoes of heaven's ar
tillery;" or, in other words: "Go to
During the war a popular young
lady was passing the quarters of some
officers one morning, when she ob
served a young lieutenant of her ac
quaintance toasting a piece of bread1
upon the poinIt of his sword. She
naively /remarked: "I see, Lieutenant,
that you have the staff of life upon the
point of death/'
At a social gathering of belles and
beaux a .iealous girl, in speaking to a
young man about a popular maiden,
spoke of her as "that red-headed, p)op
"I think I should describe her duff
erently," her companion remarked.
"How?" inquired the girl.
"Why, I should speak of her as

truding optics, was the response.
One bombastic young 'man rather
ot the worst of his efforts to "im
press'' a group of loungers with his
superior knowledge when he pomp
usly addressed a negro butler some- I
what after this style as he drove up to
a livery stable:
"I say, hostler, extricate this quad
ruped from the vehicle; stabulate

ities a supply of cereal nutrition ade
luate to his equine demands, and when

approach of Aurora's golden chariot,
[will reward you with a pecuniary -
ecompense amply munificent for iI
our profesional care and attention."

Some of the most amusing efforts at
igh-falutin language have been got
:en off by negroes. A story is told by
:he Silverton (Texas) Enterprise about
i minister who, one hot summer after- -
aoon, was driving along a country
road. He became very thirsty, and
earing the trickling of a nearby

JUST A LITTLE GIFT.
the Present an Economical Duchess
Made to Her Rich Friend.
Recently when the wealthy Mlle. de
L. was to be married one of our good
luchesses had to m9ake her a present.,
lust a little present. The duchess
hought it would be useless to expend
nuch money for a person so rich. She
:hought if she would look througi her
rast mansion she would be able to find
>omething.y some trinket, to which
he addition of her card would give
;ufficient glory. She finally found in
ier writing desk an insignificant
ameo that she had once worn.
The following day she received from
ier young friend a letter of enthusi
;stic tianks: "Oh. you have been very I
oolish! This is too, too beautiful,"
"she is making sport of my little
resent." thought the good duchess.
Then came a second letter, this time
!rom the husband who was to be:
'How can we thank you? We are de
ighted! This will spoil us."
"The impertinent fellow!" said the
luchess. "He wants me to understand
:hat I have been niggardly."
Nevertheless she went to pay a visit
:o the R.'s before the marriage. There,
n the midst of her presents, exposed
n a most prominent place, she saw the
ittle cameo placed upon her card., An
)ld gentleman approached her. He is
i member of the Academy of Inscrip
ions and Belles Lettres.
"What a wonderful present you
fave given these children. Mme. la
Duchess," he said. "For forty years
we have been seeking for this very
.ameo. It is of the era of Trajan, and
