REMARKS ABOUT WORDS.
USE OF SOME
Popular Error Concerning tha Origin ol
Many Form of Expression Common
Mistakes Which Could Ito Avoided by
an Occasional Look at a Dictionary.
"Now, boys," said a Sunday school teacher.
"who can tell me whore tho rest of the peo
ple were wnon Pfonh mid bis family went
into the ark J"
"I knowl" exclaimed a young nowsboy.
"Where were thcyr
"In de soup I" he answered.
The answer was not perhups exactly what
the teacher expected, but it described the
situation of humanity at that time In a style

To be."chicn in conversation is an attribute
much admired in either the man or the
woman of society. A generous sprinkling of
slang is permitted to enliven the small talk
of the hour, and a new phrase that is sug
gestive is welcomed with positive delight.
The latest that falls on the ear with some
what odd effect is "in the soup." The ex
pression is an elongated form of the hitherto
popular "left." The unsuccessful suitor, the
defeated political candidate, the "exploded"
financial venture, the overturned market
basket; in short, mishnnsand disappointments
of all kinds, are described us "in the soup."
This phrase, which is etinpnsed to be novel,
savors strongly of the. old expression "in a
pickle," or "in a stew." The. use of the new
term promises to be as widespread and Insting
as the older on, tilling as it docs a long felt
want In the English language.
BLAND IH A KKCIIUTrXO OFFICE.
Thero is, of course, great objection to the
use of slang in conversation, especially as a
"steady diet," but ono of our most prominent
writers has deuoraimited slang as the recruits
of a language, and the conclusion would ap
pear correct from tho avidity with which the
public accept an applicable term and use it.
A glance at hundreds of words in use at the
present time justifies tho above assertiou.
There are many words, such as kidnaping,
boycotting, hustling, etc., which are received
aa valuable additiou to our laugnaga. Dude
and boom are two very comprehensive words,
which will be found in future dictionaries.
By the way, an item is going the rounds
credited to The Boston Herald, and speaking
of "boom" as a "New American word, proba
bly suggested by the boom of a cannon," We
expect to And more reliable information than
that in a Hub journal, published In the Athens
of America. They might as well try to trace
Ito derivation to the boom of a schooner. The
fact U, it comes from a logging term, a boom
being a mass of logs rushing down stream on
a spring freshet.
One of the very latest additions to our
vocabulary of slung terms is the expression
"onto your curves." This originates from
the baseball field, and when you try to bor
row a five and a man tells you ho is onto your
curves you will know what he means, for a
Jaisman tuat is onto the curves of a pitcher
is the one that hits the bull for a four-bagger.
The word "whiskers" is a wonderful thing.
For some inscrutable reason tho great Ameri
can public have decided that the word
"whiskers la irresistibly comical, and the
poorest comedian can introduce it into the
flattest song and score a hit, especially if
anything is hinted at about the breeze sigh
ing through, etc. Even the most remote
allusion produces a singular effect, and an
audience has been thrown into convulsions of
laughter on hearing a man tell of "letting
the wind tamper with his chinchillys." Pat
Roonoy is the supposed sponsor of the word,
and it has a high jwsition in the theatrical
msCSE Or OKDLNARV WOKDS.
A short time ago the word "potwalloper"
was used, and a school teacher objected to it
as slang. The ono who used it contended
that it was Queen's English, and referred her
to any dictionary. A glance at Webster's
showed the word there and defined as "a
voter in certain boroughs in England where
all who boil (wallop) a pot are entitled to
vote." A similar term in this country is the
"mattress voter" of New York, L e., men
who ostensibly live at two or three different
places about election time.
This ignorance of tho correct meaning of
-words is more universal than one would sup
pose. Should you ask a person the meaning
of "transpire" be would say it meant "to
happen," and' it would bo very hard to make
him behove it also meant "to sweat." He
would be positive that if is you who are
wrong, thinking you have the two words per
spire and transpire mixed up. But when
they hunt up tho word they will be con
vinced. Ask a person the meaning of "livid"
and they will say "pale, ghastly;" they are
surprised that it means block and blue.
The word "lurid" is also very generally
misunderstood. The proper interpretation
of the word is very different from ite real
meaning. When we read of a lurid sky as
from a tire, we think it generally as bright
red. The word "lurid" meons ghastly, pale,
A great many other instances could be
cited of the misuse of words. The above
Instances will show yon what little reliance
can De piaeea on any impression one can
have of the meaning of a word. A small
dictionary glanced at occasionally will do
much to correct these erroneous impressions.
The industry of drying and "evaporating1
fruit in theso days fl of infinitely greater
magnitude than it was in the days when our
mothers used to paro, "quarter and core" and
string up apples by passing a cotton cord
through the pieces with a darning needle and
hang the festoons about the kitchen or around
the stove pipe in an upper room: or when in
summer raspberries and currants were ex
posed to the sun in plates and the drying pro
cess finished on papers or clean boards. One
of the greatest centers of the dried fruit In
dustry today is Rochester, N. Y. Within
radius of forty miles from the city ore over
1.(500 evaporators in operation, with capa
cities varying from twenty-flve bushel to
1,000 bushels per day. During the fall and
early winter about 30,000 people aro employed
in these establishments, earning from $5 to
13 a week. The product during 1SU7 was
about 80,000,000 pounds of dried apples alone,
requiring 5,000,000 bushels of apples, and the
drying process took 13,000 tons of cool Each
10U pounds of apples yields about twelve
pounds of dried fruit. The parings and cores
are used as the basis of apple Joules, so that
no fruit is wasted. Great quantities of dried
apples are shipped to Europe every year.
It would appear that only the stamp of
foreign approval were needed to make the
work of American artists properly appreci
ated by their own countrymen. For since
Benjamin Constant, the eminent French
painter, bos pronounced George Innesa ,4the
greatest landscape paintur in the world" it Is
said that certain New York dealers hare
hastened to secure particular pictures by
that artist, and furthermore have offered to
take all that he will paint for a year to come.
Of American oratory the general standard
seems to me very high, says Goldwin Smith;
far higher than the general standard of ora
tory iu England. All tho good speakers nave
thoroughly got rid of spread-eagleism. Eli
job Pogram, liko much else that Dickens no
doubt truly described in his day, belongs to
the past Even the best of American orators
is apt to make you feel that be is speaking for
effect. This, perhaps, is the penalty of tha
early training in elocution, which otherwise
gives great advantages, especially in point of
delivery. Neither Mr. Bright nor Mr. Glad
stone ever makes you feel that be is speaking
for effect. His sole aim appears to be to
produce conviction. Another point to be
noticed with regard to American oratory
is the immense demand which It makes upon
the power of the voice. To make himHf
heard in the house of representatives, In a
nominating convention, or in one of the enor
mous halls commonly used for political meet
ings, a man must have the lungs of Stentor.
The consequence is that politics are in danger
of being dominated by the mere power of
producing a volume of sound, which bears a
very slight relation either to wisdom or In
tegrity. Macmillan's Magazine.

on encountering a Rock Island married
man, whose wife is a friend of hers. She

THE average "silver polish " is a strong chemical compound, that

it with Ivorv Soap and hot water; use a soft brush for cleaning the
chased and ornamental work, then rub with a dry chamois, and your
silver will be as bright as new.
