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

There |sn‘t one thing at this time to
Indicate who the man will be No
body knows It has quit raining

put down as a fact The dampness
Is now all confined to the Repub

Its silence on the dry Issue, is very

on anew Victor Record
Anew Victor Record by Melba is anew chapter in the
musical history of the world.
“Sweet as the voice of Nellie Melba” is a musical proverb.
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.
Go to your nearest Victor dealer today, have him play for you the new Melba record or
any other Victor music you wish to hear. He will also gladly demonstrate to you the various
styles of the Victor and Victrola—slo to S4OO.

Important warning. Victor Records can be safely sad satisfactorily played only with
