THE PRESIDENT'S NEW WORD.
Re Get It From Pr.taam PraetaCS Stos
Ahoat mm Old Kentucky Kegm.
President Cleveland has a new word.
When any one comes to see him on a
matter of business now. he says, "Well,
now, let's ' 'spnte' about it " He got the
word from a story Professor Proctor,
the civil service commissioner, told him
of an old negro down in Kentucky who
was very powerful in theological con
troversy and was looked up to by the
colored people of that section as the
ablest exponent of the Scriptures, white
or black, they had ever seen. The old
gentleman had worsted all debaters,
and, like Alexander, sighed for new
worlds to conquer. Professor Proctor,
with a party of friends, happened to
visit the plantation upon which he lived,
and while they were sitting on the pi
azza one morning the great controver
sialist appeared with a pair of horn
framed spectacles on his nose and a big
Uible under his arm. Shuffling np to
the steps, he took off his hat, made a
low bow, and in a most dignified and
respectful manner said:
"Good mawuing, good mawning. I
done come np to eee if any of you all
white gennennens nd like to 'spnte er-
bous der holy Scriptures dis mawning. "
llio president was very much amused
by the story and has clnng to the word,
which he now uses freely at cabinet
meetings and in social as well as official
conversations. Chicago Record.
