Three Cailoo.i Words.
Filibuster, frecliootcr and buccaneer
are words curiously interrelated. The
French and the English sea adventur
ers once made common cause against
Spanish settlements in Mm? new world,
and all three of these wards came in
time to describe the rude sea soldiers
who despoiled the Spanish main and
the towns upon the coasts of the Span
Ish ixjssessions. Filibuster is said to
be the result of an attempt to make a
French word of freebooter, and the
English borrowed it back from the
French because it sounded less frankly
brutal than the English word.
Ituccaneer ' was originally French in
form, and it meant at first one who
hunted the boucan or wild cattle and
hogs of the West Indies: then one who
made jerked meat of their flesh, and
finally, because this meat was used to
provision the ships of the sea rovers, a
filibuster or freelootcr.
ROCK ISLAND. ILL:
Uv'ntlnK the Wild Boar.
In Germany the boar, hunt occurs an
nually. Trained hounds are held In
leash until the lair of the boars Is sniff
ed, and then they are let go. Off rush
the bristling lieasts. They run fast,
and the faster they skip along the wild
er and "madder" they get. Sometimes
thev are shot, but the correct style of
killing is to use a long spear or a short
stvordlikc knife. The hunter spies his
boarship speeding along in an almost
straight line, blinded with rage and
ferocity. Bending over sideways to the
earth, the siiortsnian thrusts his spear
dull end downward in the soil and the
sharp iHilnt slanting upward and turn
ed directly to the boar's path. Straight
on the wild hog rushes, and with all
the impetus of his long flight heplungesj
upon the spear point and there, impaled,
dies a bloody death'.

"Ieh dien," the motto which belongs
to the Prince of Wales, is usually
translated "I soryc," and tradition has
it that It was taken by the Black
Prlnee from the royal helmet of the
blind king of Bohemia, who was killed
ou the field of Crecy. 14 is a notable
fact, however, that the late Dr. Wil
liam Ibne. professor of English litera
ture at Heidelberg, rejected this the
ory. He held that the motto was of
Welsh origin and took Its rise at the
time when Edward I. presented his
newborn eldest son to the Welsh chief
tains at Carirarban castle as their fu
ture sovereign. He held the child up

over which you have no control it is
obvious that worrying- will not help
