Forty years ago when David Pag

Now educational ;publications, hay
in:reased to such numbers that we tin,
one publishing house advertising ul:
wards of one hundred standard work
on Te'ehing; while the number c
periodicals issued in the interests of th
profession of teaching in the Unite<
States alone is not less than seventy
five. By the teacher who lives in th
past rather than in the present, an
who is blindly following the beaten pat
marked out by the teachers of his eal
her years, without a thought as to th
wisdom of the methods or the poss
bility of any improvement, this statt
ment will probably be received with
certain degree of surprise, if not wit
absolute incredulity; but the live, pr
gressive teacher who has been earnestl
endeavoring to fit himself thoroughi
f)r the difficult and responsible work
his chosen calling by an intelligent ain
systematic course of reading in the lil
erature of his profession, recognizes it u
Some of these works have been wri1
ten mainly for the guidance of teael:
ers in ungraded country schools, b;
teachers of long and varied experiene
in the management of such schooh
Others are adapted more especially t
the work of graded schools: Some treul
exclusively of methods of teaching th
different branches of knowledge; som
of school governleIt, while others di;
cuss pedagogic principles in a genera
way leaving their proper application t
the judgment and skill of the teachei
and still -others, like Spencer, Payn
and Tate, discuss different phases c
the educational proble:n in the light c
science and philosophy.
All of these works pss points c
excellence, and the intelligent and dia
crim<inating teacher,knowing his want
will have little trouble in selecting wha
will be most helpful to himself.
Among educational periodicals, whil
s.mne are merely ephemeral in charac
ter, and others seem more devotei
to the interests of advertisers than c
teachers and schools, yet there is a larg
and growing number of journals whos
contents are su2h as no thoughtfu
teacher can peruse without benefit ti
himself and his school. They not onl:
contain the most advanced thought oi
education, and the latest and most ai
prov~ed methods of teaching, and dih
cipline, but their persual has a tenden
cy to expand and liberalize the mind c
the reader and give him broader an<
higher conceptions of his profession.
The reading of such journals con
stantly impresses the teacher with th,
fact that he is one of a vast numnber en
gage.1 in the s'ame noble cause, :i
cause of popular education; this wil
tend to give him a higher appreciatioi
of,the worth and dignity of his calling
inspire him with greater respect tor hi
fellow teachers, and thus promote tha
es,prit de corp.s hitherto so strikingl:
absent among teachers.
We intend fromt time to time to pre
sent brief critical notices of the mor
valuable wvorks on Teaching, and als
* of educational journals, hoping thereb;
to render some assistance to the younge
teachers who may be desirous of p)uI
suing a course of reading in the liters
ture of their profession.
At the meeting of the Teachers' As
* sociation in March the question wat
asked "Can an intratnsitive verb take a.
object?' This queiCstioni was answere<
affirmatively by several teachers pret
ent. In illustration, such sentenxces a
He runs a race, She sings a song &c.
were cited. It was held that the verb
runs and sings were intransitiv e an<
whenever they took anl object it had t'
have a siguitieationl kindred to that
tile verb, similar, we presumle, to th~
cognlate~ accusativeC of the Lathit.
In an article written subsequently w
brietly dliscussed the questioni and e.x
p)ressed the opinion that an intransitiv
verb cannot take an object, that th
verbs ruins anid sinigs ar.e transitive. an<
further that the objects of such verb
must not niecessairily have a meaning
kindred to that o,f the verbs. In pr<s
of our positionl we submitted such set
tences as, The htackmtan runs a hal

The main point at issue, however. is
whether an intransitive verb can take
an object. The teacher whose article
we are reviewing, evidently held the
opinion that it could, but judging from
the following language used by her
toward the close of her article, we infer
that she has modified her views: "We
e do not feel convinced of the position we
t maintained at the Teachers' Associa

intransitive or complete verbs, and if a
e noun (object) is to be definite, not %t all
necessary to the sense, then such an
- object is cognate or a noun of kindred

THE WORDS WE USE.
Does an Average Man Use 00 Words of
[George Fleming in Literature.]
At an educational meeting held in
this State a few years ago, the conduc
cdtor, a noted professor, made the follow
e idg statement: "The best educated per
son in this room will not use more than
S600 or 700 words." He also assigned a
t smaller number to persons of limited ed
e ucation, stating that an ignorant man
e would not use more than 200 or 300
words. I had before 'seen statements
l of similar import in public print, and to
test their correctness I began an inves
. tigation of the matter.
e The subject was brought anew to my
' mind by observing an article in the
f Chautauquan some months ago, in
which Professor Bancroft remarked:
f "It has been estimated that an English
farm hand has a vocabulary limited to
300 words. An American workingman
t who reads the newspapers may com
mand from 700 to 1,000 words. Five
C thousand is a large number, even for an
- educated reader or speaker." This as
i sertion is much nearer the truth! than
I' that of the institute conductor men
e tioned. For the benefit of those who
Smay be interested, I offer the' results of
1 my study on the subject. An intelli
3 gent person can make the same exami
7 nation, and will arrive at substantially
1 the samte results.
-I took Webster's high school diction
- ary, edition 1878, containing 434 pages
- of vocabulary, and examined each word
f in the book. I made a note of those
Iwords which I supposed I had used at
some time either in speaking or writing.
- I counted the primitive wdrds and
a those derivatives whose meaning is
- most at variances with the primitive.
SThus, count fright and fruit, but not
i frighten, fruitful, frightfully nor fruit
1 age, fruiterer, fruitful, fruitfulness, fru
, ition and fruit-tree. I omitted most of
s the compound words, especially when
t the com;ponent parts directly indicated
Sthe meaning, as milk-pail, meeting
house, rag-muan, but counted those
- whose signific'ance was not directly
e indicated, as crowbar, quicksand, tin
3) foil. As the result of this examination,
7 I had 7,928 words, which, I think, I
r myself have used.
There were 419J in A, 528 itt B, 750 in
C, 455i in D, 23.5 in E, 369 in F, 279 in G
286 in H, 330 in 1, 81 in J, 49 in K, 290
-in L, 476 in M, 144 in N, 217 in 0, 71.5
in P, 55 in Q, 397 in 1R, 954 in T, 47in
1U , 148 in V, 202 in W, 23in Xand Y,
and 10 in Z.
Had I counted the various deriva
tives in common use, it is probable the
number would be nearly double.
2 To mxake a further test of words at
m ny command, I spetnt about two hours
in writing from memory words in A.
I was able to note down ->37 words that
I could use if occasion required. This
is thirty-five per cent. mtore than I had
counted from the dictionary. Should
the, same proportion hold good in all
ethe letters, it would follow that I can
recatll front mtemory 10,700) words, all of
wihich aIre famtiliar.
I made another count, and came to
the conclusion that I could give a fair
definltit of at least 25,000 words in
tha t book, and wvould understand their
sinfcto in a p)rinited a'rticle or

experimetnt with myself. Every well
informted man will be as competent, if
not miore so. Eithter professor mient
tionted will have a more extended vo
cebularv than I have.
t I then took at random, in thte same
- dictionary, a page int each letter, and(
r counted the words in very comimon use.
SOn twenty-four pages there were 25
such~l words. This would give 3,300
Swords ini use by persons of the most
'ordinary intelligence. None of these
C lists include any proper names.

Common people use from 3,000 to

\Ve speak f,r our branch of
the trade at this time and (
it applies equally as well to
all trades and professions in
the town and county. We
are not selfish. But we want
that we are prepared to do.
It is not too much to say that
our work is equal to the best.
We can print anything and

a word about the
Steam Power '
which we put in last spring.
It is a small beginning, and
should .ot be despised. The i
first steam printing ever done
in Newberry was in our estab
lishment, and it's still goingD
on. You know that steam D
power is much more satisfac
tory than hand power in any D
enterprise where power is to
be used. Our power is pro.
duced by a novel piece of D
mechanism in the shape of an D
engine no bigger than' a stove!
Come in and see it in opera-,1

and anything else you need l
that we have not mentioned.
We guarantee satisfaction in
every particular. We put
