O P. Machine In Chicago NOAH WEBSTER MADE MISTAKE “Convention” Is Not a Noun, But Verb, Meaning “To Get” By C. T. SCHERMERHORN. CONVENTION HALL, CHICAGO, June 10—Noah Webster, publisher of dictionaries, made an awful mess of the word "convention." He de cided it was a noun, and then died, leaving it to us a noun, when It Is no such thing The word convention, In its full Coliseum meaning, is a verb, full of action, and means "to get." It means first, to the friend from your own home town, "to get" a pass, "to get" In It means to the delegates to get "up,” “to get" the chairman's eye. and "to get” the floor. All the newspaper men here want this convention "to get" through. The purpose of the candidate Is "to get" tim other fellow. Convention, In a Chicago sense, means for a very few men, "to get" off to one side to name the nominee, while the delegates go through the motions Just the same as If they had some thing to say about it. The convention has now reached the stage of nominating speeches which do not cut any figure, but which have, of course, been care fully prepared, ’ carefully rehearsed, and carefully censored a few dozen times and must be delivered, be It ever so painful to the other fellows. Tgese nominating speeches come in mighty hands here, because they will fill In while the party lenders are over in the Chicago club decid ing on the man the delegates are to vote for The national convention of 11* I♦> Is not being held in the Coliseum — It Is being held In the Chicago club. It consists of a mere handful of men whr* have their hands full of Theodora Roosevelt, and what they are trying to dw the present time is to get him off their hands. It is no easy Job, but rest assured they will do it . Roosevelt Is said to he on n Tteace program that is now being dis cussed. which suggests to most everybody in Chicago that the doc tors have been successful in getting him under the influence of chloro form There has been absolutely no pro gress made in the direction of a sat Isfactory candidate since Monday There |sn‘t one thing at this time to Indicate who the man will be No body knows It has quit raining here That much at least can be put down as a fact The dampness Is now all confined to the Repub lican platform for 191**, which, by Its silence on the dry Issue, is very wet.

The capture of her matchlessly pure notes in a fresh flow of beauty is an event of genuine importance to those who cherish genius. “Songs My Mother Taught Me,” an exquisite gypsy lyric by the Bohemian Dvorak, is worthy a place among the “Melba classics” to be found only on Victor Records. In this cameo of a song Melba’s art shines in all its crystal purity and tenderness and freshness. It is a song which every true appreciator of beauty will surely wish to ada to his library of Victor Records. “Song* My Mother Taught Me” (Dvorik) Nellie Melba Victor Red Seal Record 88485. Twelve*inch, $3 Melba sings only for the Victor. She is one of a mighty company. Practically every great artist and entertainer of this generation has, like Melba, chosen the Victor as the only instrument capable of reproducing his or her art with unswerv ing fidelity.
