Their Orthographical Mysteries Fen of'
Them Are Pronounced its Spelled. I
It is an oft repeated aoensation against !
the English tongne that spelling cannot be i
called a matter of "rule," for even in com
monplace words "ough" has half a doien
sounds separate and distinct; but when it
comes to surnames, as pronounced in Eng
land, confusion becomes woisceonfnnndivl
Where would one find an average intellect '
who would pronounce Alierstuvenny Aber
genny, and why should t he "classic race" I
df the world belie its k-tteis and be culled i
It will require a sweeping reform before
Brougham will have become, as it should
bo, 'Hrooin," and it is a question why the
scions of noble houses shou'd lie so careful
as to the pronunciation of ttieir names, but
where is the I'holmondely r r Marjoribanks
who is satisfied with anyth ng longer than
the clipped "Marshhanks ' and "Chum
ley?" How theC'olquhouiiS and Wemyss'
arrived at "fa boon'' and "Wcvms" will lie
a riddle to orthogra pliers f ir ages to come.
Of course, a large nun ber of British
houses claim Norman docont, and natu
rally demand a pure or half pure French
pronunciation. So the "licauclerks" and
"YVilloughhy Be Kresliys'' become in po
lite circles "Willoughby t)e Ereliys" and
"Beauclarcs;" but to ncco int for "Walde
grave" being "AValgruve," "St. John"
"Sinjin," or "St. Iger" "Silleger" is a
A large number of w-!l known names
change their o's into u's, mch as "Conyng
ham," "Monsim" and "1'onsonbv." while
"Blount" becomes "Bl nit" and "Du

names beginning with "Beau" alter their
pronunciation consideial Iy, for instance:
"D5 Beauvoir" c h.-nt.-. s to "De Beever"'
and the famous "Beau 'Limps" are all
"Beechams.-' Indeed, to take the peerage
through those names which spell them
selves are the exception, and the intellect
is stunned to find that "f iiarteris," "(flam

All colleges have distinctive "colors" as
well as "cries," and tluy are much more
useful. In football notches and rowing
races the college colors afford an easy and
pleasant method of distinguishing the con

fuse. Below is given a list of the colors

In an interesting -ketch of the mode of
life of the famous French painter, Bosa
Bonhcur, a recent riter says: "That Bosa
Boiiheur dresses in male attire has often
been commented it Min by her biographers.
The idea commonly obtains that it is her
usual costume. Bi t if you should meet
her in the streets of Paris you would see a
large, elderly lady, rather plainly dressed,
in black, her gray hair tucked under a
close bonnet ; and unless you were attract
ed by the peculiar t-trength of ber face and
by her piercing, attentive eyes, you would
not notice t hat she differed from tiny lady
in the passing crow 1. except thntslie wejirs
the red ribbon of -.he Begion d'Honneur.
But Bosa Bonheur at work in her home
does wear male cos ume.
" ears ago, when she was a young woman
and a studeiii, slu adopted it liecause it
gave her more freedom in her studies at
the menageries ano cattle yards. Dressed
as a boy she attra.-ted less comment and
attention from the hangers on of the sta
bles than if she h." 1 gone among them in
jietticuats. Kosa J Sonliciir appreciates the
good finalities of the blouse, and at work
now she stiil keeis to this easy garment,
having auued t- it the ordinary man's
trous.-1-s. which in ike her feet appear very
small, and also i, wide brimmed felt or
straw hat. In tl is dress she appears of
much lower statu -e than in woman's ap
parel, looks like a remarkably well
preserved middle aged man."
The Lunjruage f Color.
Iu the language of rolors, green- is em
blematic of hope, for the vernal regenern
tion of nature is t .-picnl of life after death;
blue denotes fui h, for it is the hue of
heaven; white ii- the color of innocence
end red is chosen to represent love, because
the heart's blood is of that color.

Jud.Te Hunter h.s gained quite a rep
titation for his severity on gamblers, but
this week we arc informed that a gen
tleman of that profession rather sur
prised the judge. He was charged be
fore the judge for gambling with cards.
"So you were playing cards for
money?" said the judge.
"No, sir; we were playing for chips."
"Well, sir, it's all the same thing; yon
got your chips cashed for money at the
end of the game, 1 suppose."
"No! Hows that?"
"At the end of the game I didn't have
any chips, yonr honor."
"You're discharged," said the judge,
and he snapped it out so quick that the
sheriff turned pale. Seattle Journal.
