[RI. G. Whito in New York Tlmei
I am asked *dhen it became the custom to
call married women "Mlsslz." instead of
"Mistress." 'I believe that it would be difil
cult to lix upon a time when this deplorable
change in pronunciation took place, and, In
deed, I am) very sure that the clipped and de
graded form of mistress made its way slowly
among tile folk who worn born to speak Eng
lish, and dhi not prevail until some genera
tions had passed away after it came Into a
certain vogue. In fact, 'mintress is not yet
absolutely driven from the field, for there are
people, both in England and America, who
discluim miMiz. )and cling to the old, full
sounding, dignilled mistress. But although
the question propounded to me cannot be ex
actly answerdl, It gives us a good occasilc to
glance at the history of our most commonly
us,4d titles of respect,
Mister !,, ilke ,miNsiz, a degraded form of a
better word, master, and master itself is the
product of a gradual decay of the Latin
magister, both words having the same mean
ing. Master, however, s1 not directly derived
from mngister. The Latin word, In the course
of those centuries which we call the Dark
Ages, dropped the g and became maister, or
muistre, in old French. In this form it passed
into old English, in which it Is fund always,
or almost always, written either with ai or
ay, and there is no room for doubt that the
pronunciation of the word was the same both
in England and in Fronce.
Our wretched little Missiz has the same no
ble descent as Mister. The feminine form of
emaister is maisteress, and the latter word
naturally soon followed the former into use.
At first it had a like application, and was
given to women who were really maistere+ses.
But it lost this elevation much sooner than its
masculine counterpart did. The desire to
please the vanity of women, sometimes called
chivalric, sometimes gallant, which has done
much greater harm, did some harm in leading
quickly to the application of this title to all
ladies-that is, all gentlewomen, who had no
other. Sooner than maister, too, it lost its a
both in pronunciation and in spelling. Mis
tress is a much older English sound than
Mistress was given as a title of honor to
young girls as well as to matrons early in the
sixteenth century, if not before that time. Of
its use in this manner in the time of Eliza
beth, Shakespeare's "Mistress" Anne Page,
In the Windsor comedy, is an example. Anne
Page was a more slip of a girl, but being the
daughter of a gentleman, she was "Mis
tressed." This use of Mistress prevailed until
about the reign of Queen Anne. Until the end
of the seventeenth century unmarried ladies
wire called Mistress-Mistress Mary, Mis
tress Betty, and so forth. As their mothers
were also called Mistress, the fashion makes
some confusion for the modern reader of old
time literature, particularly in the old Eng
lish comedies. In the dramatis persomne of
these there will be half a dozen ladies, all
styled "Mrs.," of whom some will be married
women, and others young, unmarried girls
It is not always easy to discover theexact po
eition of these ladies, even by their manners,
particularly when the Mrs. Is a widow.
Mis, as a title o rspet, Is the most
modern of the three common titles of our
day. Two hundred years ago It was a title

A gentleman who hlis lately visited the
wondierful and unknown catlon wais Inutr
viewed by a reporter for the Chronrl'h. Like
porhaps a hunldred others, he went to see and
ierhaps dtiewover the unknown beyond, but
Ils heart failed hiM, aed he wasr quIut satin
lied to hear related the strange stories of
those who had made bold enough to rea'h the
polnt uatnoti. 'Thls igetitlou wia told that
miners had brought out q1 artz picked from
the Oldeo of the canon, which contained more
gold than rock; that many of them believed
that its walls were made of such stuff, yet no
one was bold enough to pass on to ascertain
the truth, because of the stories told in re
gard to the canlon. One of these was to the
Sefflect that some ) ears tago two prospectors,
lured on by what they had found iup to the
second wall spoken of above, passed on and
never returned. Our informant declares that
there is no doubt but that two men passed in
search of gold, and that they never returned
Is a fact attested by those who waited anx
lously for their report. The Chronicle man
r suggested that they might have passed out
I through some opening in the canon as yet
I unknown, but this Idea was exploded by the
statement to our informant by those who
were left behlnd, that if they had lived they
would have certainly returned and reported.
Yet another story, and one which appals
the traveler, is to the elTect that the James
boys use this canon as a cover and hldIlg
place. One man has posltively asserted that
while prospecting upon the summit of a
mountain which overlooks the break In the
canon, that he saw an armed sentinel pacing
to and fro over the trail. At first sight he
thought the person to be a hunter, but as his
strange movements attracted his attention,
he made close watch, is sure that the man's
business there was that of a guard, and Is
ready to swear to not only this part of the
story, but that at one time he observed two
men there, and that he believes it was the
purpose of the second to relieve the first from
duty. Whether these stories be true or false,
one thing is certain, no man to-day can be
driven or coaxed for a greater distance than
about 300 yards through Half-Moon Canon.

Three romantic Kentucky girls recently hit
upon a better device for securing husbands
than by advertising. They lived on the banks
of the Ohio river, and agreed each to set a
bottle afloat containing a paper on which was
written her name and a promise to marry
whomsoever should find the bottles. One of
the girls has married recently the man who
found her bottle far down the river, the second
is engaged to the one who found hers at
Natchez, Miss,, and the third Is corresponding
with the finder of hers, who also lives at a
great distance from the point where the bot
ties were launched.
