Obsolete Words.
The number of obsolete words
that are to be found in Webster's
Dictionary is considerably larger
than people have any idea of.
The following letter, written by
an alleged poet to an editor who
had treated his poetry with de
rision, furnishes some idea of
them: 'Sir: You have behaved
like an irapediginous scroglo!
Like those who, envious of anv
moral celsitndo, carry their un
gicity to the height of creating
symposically fecund words which
my pollyniathic genius uses with
uberty to abligate the tongues of
the weetless! Sir, you have
crassly parodied my own pet
words as though they were tran
graras. I will not coascervato
reproaches I will oduce a veil
over the atramental ingratitude
which has chamferod oven my
indiscerptiblo heart. Iam silent
on the focillation which my co
adjuvanc3r must havo given you
when I offered to becomo your
fantor and adminicle I will not
speak of the lippitude, the ob
lopsy, you have shown in exacor
bating mo, one whose genius you.
should havo approached with
discalceation. So I tell you,
without supervacaneous words,
nothing will render ignosciblo
your conduct to mo. I warn you'
that I would yellicato your nose if
thereby could be perforined-if I
thought I should not impignorate
my reputation. Go! tacln-graphic
scroglo, band with your crass
inquinato fantors; draw oblecta
tions from the thought, if you
can, of having synchronically lost
the existimation of the greatest
poet since Milton.' And yet all
these words are to be found in
the Dictionary.
Origin of a Xame.
The popular notion that Amer
ica was so called from the-Christian
name of Amerigo Vespucci isr
it is Said, wholly unfounded, tho
name really being taken from.
'Amerrique, the Indian namo o
the mountains between Jolgalapa
and Libertad, in the provinces of
Choutales, which separate Iiako
Nicaragua from the Mosquito
Coast. The namo in the Maya
language signifies 'tho windy
country,' or tho 'country whero
tho wind blows always.' Tho
Christian name of Vespucci was
Alberico in Italian and Spanish,
and Albericus in Latin, but it is
subject to a great number of
variations, and the name Amerigo,
is probably an adaptation of
Amerrique, added to Vespucci's
namo to distinguish it (Amerrique
being a namo already known and.
applied to the New World) in tho
same way as we say now 'Chinese
Gordon' to distinguish this par
ticular Gordon by suggesting one
of his heroic feats. Vespucci's
claim to the discovery of America,
is put out of court by the fact
that he was in Seville when.
Columbus made his voyage. He
did, however, make two or three
Toyages to the New World later
on, and being a vain man and.
acquainted with map makers, ho
would be nothing loth to see his
name associated with the vague
splendors of the new continent.
