A CONVERSATION BETWEEN TWO
COLLEGE GRADUATES. a 1
Blaof In the Months of Men Is Bad Enoneh,
hnt Alien Well Bred Young Women Are
Addicted to the Habit It Becomes Abso
Dear girls, avoid slang. There are so
many reasons why you should not use
it, and only one excuse in its favor that
I have ever heard from any reliable au
thority! Here it is:
Oliver Wendell Holmes, in one of his
racy breakfast table talks, says: "Don't
think I undervalue the proper use and
application of a cant word or phrase. It
adds piquancy to conversation as a
mushroom does to a 6auce." That this
is the idea most young people have
when they firt 1k,TiU to use it all will
admit, but tnlorluuately it is like mod
erate drinking in its tendency, so insin
uating in its growth as a habit, and they
become 60 "addicted to it" (to follow
out the simile), that it seems impossible
to mako themselves intelligible without
it. I have heard young ladies (?) talk
ing who seeuv-d to liavo an entire vo
cabnlnry composfd of slang which
would be as utterly unintelIi;riblo to a
well bred Eirli::b f-r Scotch girl as
Chinese or Grwi.
To qnot:' the v.vifr;inxhilosophcr again:
"These expressions coma to be algebraic
Ej-mbols of minus which have grown too
weak or indolent to discriminate. Thev
nro the blank checks of intellectual
bankruptcy. You may fill them up with
whatever idea you like. It makes no dif
ference, for there ?.ro no funds in the
treasury upon which they are drawn."
That of coarso is very severe, but 1
have often heard quite clever and well
educated young ladies using those odious
"blank checks" to such an extent that
r.ny one not knowing them intimately
might readily have supposed their "in
tellectual bank" empty.
I wonder what Dr. Holmes would have
thought of an actual conversation be
tween two young ladies in good society,
so called, who sat behind me in the grand
stand at a baseball match last summer.
I can give it almost verbatim:
"Say, Jen (abbreviated form of Jennie;
'life is too short' to use the whole of a
person's name), who is the 'fly' looking
snide' in the yellow striped 'get up':' "
"Oh, 'come off the roof!' To pretend
yon don't know Cob. (C. O. B. are the
young gentleman's initials wittily con
verted into 'Cob.') After the way you
'went for' him at the ball la.t week!
You can't 'stuff me with that kind of
gag, Miss Innocent."
"Oh, ia that Cob? lie must be 'off his
nut' to 'rig' himself in such a 'swazger'
"Oh, Jen, look at Cob now! He is hor
ribly 'rattled.' Mabe (short for Mabel)
'slung a glauc e' at him, and he lo.- t Lis
head as well as his base."
"Is she 'mashed' on Cob;"
"Ha, ha! 'Poll :own your vest. Do
you think Mabe is :Y her base?' She likes
him 'to trot h"r round' and "stump up the
needful' for ice cream, etc., but she likes
Alf Jones l; t: f-r 'all the same-es.' You
can 'bet your sweet life' sin- won't inarrv
"Look at LimiKiw. 'You bet" he's 'hus
"Get thre. P.:!" "Rnduigore!" "That
was a "boss" run!" r.nd so on ad fiuitnm.
ad nauseum. All this in a perfectly audi
ble voice, stud they were seemingly un
aware thit fat re was anything vulgar cr
r.t of tl;" usual m their conver-.ti'.on.
Probably 1 here Wi-.s not, and yet thus-1 wo
young ladies wore coll-ge graduates and
were pos: e: s: 1 t more i han average abil
ity. If you think this descriplinn exagger
ated, listen critically to the nest un
restrained conversation between two
voting ladies whom you know to l
guilty of uaing slang freely. I fancy I
hear you say. "But I never could tilk
lake care! Just as conn-
oeni ones as you r.ave Degun py ur.v.g a
