Showing What an Enthusiast Will Do

Many a c.untry laborer will do much

did an enthusiastic navvy with whom
Dean Hole once came In contact.
This man, having obtained the posi

himself the possessor of a barren grav
el pit as nn apology for a garden. The
dean, who knew the spot well, visited
it some twelve months after the man
had taken possession. and the sight
which met his eyes astonished him.
"Was it a mirage I saw upon the
sandy desert? There were vegetables.
fruit, bushes and fruit trees, all In
rigorous health. There were flowers
and the queen dower in her glory."
'"Why.' I exclaimed. 'what have
you done to the gravel pit?
- -Lor' bless yer.' he replied. grin
ning. '1 hadn't been here a fortnight
afore I swopped it for a pond."'
A further Inquiry elicited the fact
that this most ardent garden lover
had, after an agreement with a neigh
boring farmer. removed with pick and
barrow his sandy stratum to the depth
of about three feet and wheeled it to
the margin of an old pond. which had
been gradually filled up with leaves
and silt. The rich. productive mold

Antiquity of Nicknames
The origin of the word as well as
the exact date of appearance of the
custom of "-nicknamiing" is unknown

most venerable chronicles, for upon
diving into ancient history we have no
trouble at all in proving that Plato
was called the "Attic Bee" and Socra
tes "-Old Flat Nose." There isn't the
least doubt but that many of our sur
names come from nicknames applied
to our ancesto~rs, such, for instance, as
"Dollarhide." -'Oxenrider." "Bright."
"Lghtfoo." "'Walkingshaw," "-Red
bead." "Longman."' "Locngfellow." etc.

depends the possibility of nervous
