"The eats," "a perfect brick," "the
gift of gab" and other such phrases
have been given a clean bill of health
as perfectly pure English and have
been extended a welcoming hand into
the Anglo-Saxon language by Mrs.
Mary Green Conklin, Radcliffe student,
author and playwright. Following is
a partial list of the phrases Mrs. Conk
lin calls good slang: The eats, bad
lot, played out, go hang, jolly good, all
in, buckle under, going to the dogs, at
sea, go against the grain, pitch into,
gift of gab, chip of the old block, ter
ribly cut up, scrape acquaintance, had
an affair, don't care a rap, white
washed, getting on fast, a perfect
brick, made a hit. Mrs. Conklin de
clares that certain slang is not only
permissible, but very acceptable, force
ful and worth while. She insists that
slang can uplift as well as debase a
language. It is the vivid, typical slang
of "the street that keeps a language
alive, in her opinion.
Beecher on Blindness.
It would be a dreadful thing to me
$o lose my sight, to see no more the
faces of those" I love, nor the sweet
blue of heaven, nor the myriad stars
that gem the sky, nor the dissolving
clouds that pass over it, nor the bat
tling ships upon the sea, nor the
mountains with their changing lines of
light and shade, nor the loveliness of
flowers, nor the burnished mail of in
sects. But I should do as other blind
men have done before me: I should
take God's rod and staff for my guide
and comfort, and wait patiently for
death to bring better light to nobler
eyes. O ye who are living in the dark
ness of sin! turn before it is too late
to the light of holiness, else death will
bring to you not recreation, vbut retri
bution. Earthly blindness can be
borne, for it Is but for a day; but who
could bear to be blind through eterni
ty? Henry Ward Beecher.
Architect of His Own Fortune.
Prof. Arminius Vambery, the world's
most famous orientalist, who celebrat
ed his eightieth birthday not long ago,
was a tailor's apprentice as a lad, and
received no education other than that
he was able to pick up. His father
was a poor Jew, and the boy had to
work his way. At eighteen he had
already mastered four European lan
guages, in addition to Turkish, and
then became a private teacher. His
long life in the Orient gave him per
fect command of many tongues. At
Constantinople- he was counselor to
Abdul Hamid. He is proud of his low
ly origin, boasts of the many books he
has -written, cares little for wealth, but
is said to be unusually susceptible to
flattery. For years he has been pro
fessor of oriental languages at Buda
pest. Yankees at Work in India.
A hundred and fifty miles from Cal
cutta, in Kalimati, stands the first
steel and iron power plant ever con
structed in India. This enterprise was
projected by a wealthy Parsee,
planned by an American engineer from
Pittsburg and executed by another
Pittsburg man, with the assistance of
native labor only. Among workmen
were Bengalis, Punjabis and Sikhs, for
whom a town accommodating 25,000
was built in the midst of a jungle. The
equipment of the plant includes three
horizontal turbo generators of the
Zoelly type, capable of developing
some 4,000 horse power, which is used
to drive the machinery of the Tatia
Iron and Steel company. Edison J
Harvard at Play.
A great joke was played upon Presi
dent Lowell of Harvard at .the recent
banquet for the Harvard football team
by the Boston alumni. A student, clev
erly disguised and speaking broken
English, was introduced to the "prexy"
&b "Herr Baron von Keppel," just over
from Germany. President Lowell lent
himself to" the foreigner's entertain
ment, recalling other distinguished
foreigners who had shown interest in
the university. When the stranger
asked: "What time do they chase the
eats on board?" the president prompt
ly recognized him as a Harvard man
by his university English. Evening
Lightning Uncovers Lead Mine.
Lightning recently uncovered a lead
mine on the farm of William Thacker
in Baxter county, Arkansas. The bolt
struck a hickory tree, ran into the
ground and then divided into six
branches, digging ditches about three
feet deep and eighteen inches wide.
The longest ditch is 150 feet in length
and the others vary from twenty Ao
forty-nine feet. At the end of the
longest ditch is a hole two feet in di
ameter and two feet deep, from which
a considerable quantity of lead ore
was thrown out, one piece weighing
four pounds. Kansas City Journal.
Life In Fire and Ice.
The human organism is able to bear
degrees of heat and of cold that are
astonishing. Sir George Nafes and
those who accompanied him on his
arctic travels endured during 48 hours
a temperature of 79 degrees below
zero. Fish, reptiles and insects may
be frozen without evincing any igns
of distress, provided that the change
be effected gradually, and subsequent
ly return to their ' normal existence
without evincing any 111 effects. Har
