Titles of Commonwealths That Were
Suggested by Romance; Others That
Were Decidadly Prosaic.
Prom the Chicogro Chronicle.
George Washington delivered an ad
dress before the common couneil of New
? In 1784 in which he said:
* pray that heaven may bestow its
choicest blessings on your city; that the
devastation of war In which you found It
may soon be without a trace; that a well
regulated and benetlcial commerce may
enrich your citizens und that your state
at present the seat of empire?may set
such examples of wisdom as shall have a
tendency to strengthen the Union."
And from that day to this New York
has been known as the empire state.
Back in the early days, before America
as a nation began to make history, some
body wrote a romance and called it "Las
Sergas de Lsplanadlan," and somebody
h?niHf / ^ " ln rn th|a t^e a
beautiful pagan queen called Calaila liv
ing In a kingdom called California, fur
nished an army of amazonlans to Espla
nadian emperor of the Greeks to aid in
?,n8_,9onstantinople aS"lnst eastern
?n h i1?. land of Ule Pagan queen
was filled with gold.
Cortez, the explorer of later date, had
a. been impressed by this tale.
VI hen he set out upon his expedition of
adventure his mind was thrilled at tho
thought of new riches he was to acquire
and thus he called the land which he dis
covered on the Pacific coast California.
From that day to this it has been known
as the golden" state, and its people have
been nicknamed "gold hunters."
Tar Heels and Hoosiers.
It is an Interesting matter for investi
gation, this of how tho states of the
I'nion came to be called what they are
called today, the manner ln which they
acquired their various nicknames and
why their respective citizens are charac
terized by the more or less odious epi
thets that cling to them. In other words
} ??'ro ^ortil Carolinians called "tar
heels, citizens of Colorado called "rov
ers, Indlanians "hoosiers," or Mlssourl
ans pukes ?
It is recalling facts ln history to an
swer. In the first place, most of the
states which form this Union took their
names originally from the stream or
mountain that formed a conspicuous fea
ture of the territory, and these had been
Previously named by the Indians.
Ihe state of Colorado was named for
the river. The word means "red." As a
general thing Colorado streams are clear
Jmpid and reflect the blue of the heavens
and nature's green. But when mountain
storms arise there is rolled through these
disturbed waters quantities of red sand.
Hence the name.
Colorado was admitted into the T'nlon
the year of the centennial, and hence its
nickname, the "Centennial state." Its peo
ple are called "rovers," an epithet that was
called into being by the Pikes Peak gold
To Missouri, named for the river the In
dians called "Pig Muddy," and her people
is attached the reprehensible nickname of
"puke." This dates back to 1827. the time
when the Galena lead mines were drawing
people from all over the country. So many
of these came from Missouri that other
Missourians who had gone on before re
marked that the state had taken a sudden
Several years previous to this time there
had been a big exodus from these same
mines that had given rise to the nickname
.of the citizens of Hlinois or 'Tribe of
Men." A large party while boarding the
steamer at the Galena wharf was asked.
"Where ye going?" 'To hum," was the
reply. "Well," was the rejoinder of the
old miner, "ye put me in mind of suckers.
Thej- go up the riven In the spring, spawn
and all return down again in the fall." The
Iilinoisans became "suckers." The siate
is known ns the Prairie state on account of
its sweeping land.
Just why Tndianlnns are called "hoo
siers" is a matter that has not been en
tirely settled. In the earlier days the word
"hirsher" was a common western term for
a bully, and this is offered by some au
thorities ns an explanation of the term
booster. Others say that it is the result
of a contraction "of the question, "Who's
Towans, "drowsy ones," are hawkeyes,
because an Indian chief of that name onco
spread terror among travelers abroad in
his laud. Kansans have been Jayhawkers
since the days of the civil war, when the
guerrilla bands Inaugurated a lawless
method of warfare. On the other hand, as
if to atone for this unpleasant epithet, the
state has been dubbed the "garden of the
west" on account of its great jiroductlve
? ness.
j Denizens of the land where the blue
| grass grows, Kentucky, ure called "corn
crackers," because a rail with this peculiar
name is the game bird of that region.
Sometimes they are called "red horses,"
but nobody seems to know why.
When La Salle entered the Gulf of Mexico
ln ItSC! he founded the fort of St. Louis and
named It for Louis XIV of France and the
surrounding territory he called Louisiana.
The Inhabitants of this country originally J
weie French and Spanish settlers, and their
descendants even today are called Creoles. !
To Henrietta Maria, wife of Charles I of
England and daughter of Henry IV of
France, both Maine and Maryland are in
debted for their names. The latter is Mary's
land. The former was derived from Mayne, j
the name of the patrimonial estate of the
French prlncesS. People of this the lumber
slate are " foxes," both on account of the
abundance of this animal and because the
lives of many were passed in the woods.
Marylanders are "crawthumpers," a name
applied to lobsters by fishermen.
Massachusetts is the Indian name for
"blue hills." It Is the "bay" state because
It was once the "Massachusetts bay col
ony." and the people are "beans" on ac
count of the favorite dish which every one
knows is theirs. To say nothing of their
knowing considerable more than "beans"
Is the popular conception.
Michigan Is the "lake" state and tho
people are "wolverines." Minnesota, the
"north star," on account of the insignia of
Its seal. Its people are "gophers." the ul
lusion being to the honeycombed condition
of the state due to the small bodies of
Mississippi is the "bayou" state and Its
citizens are "tadpoles." Nebraskans are j
called "bug eaters." because a bird sc. j
named and believed to be of evil omen by
the rural population frequents that part of
the country. People living in Nevada are j
"sage hens;" in New Hampshire, "granite I
boys;" ln Vermont. "Green mountain
boys." in South Carolina, "weasels;" In I
^ irginla, "beadles;" in Wisconsin, "bad- 1
ners." I
New Jerseyites are "clam catchers," be
cause this is the principal occupation of the
poorer classes. Oliloans ure called "buck- I
eyes," because of the abundance of a tree
by this name, the nut of which bears a
strong resemblance to a buck's eye. North
Carolinians are called "tar heels." This
sobriquet gires back to war times, when
the people came out of the pineries to tight.
About the same time Tennesseeans wero
dubbed "butternuts" on account of the color
of the clothes they wore. "Gun flints" as
applied to the citizens of Rhode Island,
gites back to the I>orr rebellion of Is-p*
when the arms of this old desc ription were
pulled out fr..n, the garrets where tiiev
had lain unused for years.
r<xas is the "lone star" state because
t.iat was 1 he emblem of her flag before she
was admitted into the I'nion and Is s'ill

which is a playful allusion to the bowie

Oregon is the "webfoot" country because
t.ie ex.yssive rains in winter render its
climate sut h as only a web footed animal

habits of the early settlers.
The stones of the Rook creek bridge at
Washington, D. C.. aro named after the ave
nues of the city. The name "Pennsylvania"
appcsrs on the keystone of the bridge's
arch. This fact Is cited by some as the ex
planation of why the state, named aft^r
the most peaceful of all early American
settlers. Is called the "keystone state." But
a better explanation Is found In the circum
stances attending the signing of the Decla
ration of Independence. Six colonies had
cast their voto Ih the affirmative, six as op
posed to th^measure. John Morton repre
senting Penns3-lvaola, cast the vote that
broke the tie, and by so doing he gained for
his state the honor of being the "keystone"

Old Sol's Rays Have No Effect Upon
a Tanned Skin.
From the Chicago Chronicle.
There are certain arctic animals, dark
coated in the short summer, that In winter
turn pure white, thus matching the snow
covered landscape and escaping notice and
This change of color, this protection, ef
fected no one knows how. is wonderful, as
wonderful as a miracle, and yet a kindred
change of color, a kindred protection, hap
pens amons mankind every summer and no
body ever notices It. I
When the pale city people go out In the
summer sun of the seashore or the moun- |
tains the light attacks them fiercely, first j
reddening their skin, then swelling, blister- j
Ing and scorching It. If they kept in the
sun enough and If no miracle occurred the
light would kill them finally, burning oft
the skin first and afterward attacking the
raw flesh.
But a miracle does occur. The skin
changes from a pale color to a tan and on
this tan the sun has no effect. The sun
may beat on tan-colored skin for days and
weeks, but such skin remains always sound,
unblistered, whole.
Thus nature works a miracle. The white
skin Is suffering and nature, aware some
how that a tan skin Is sunproof, changes
to tan the white. How does she do this?
Where did she iearn that it was wise to
do this? No one knows. Only the fact of
the miracle remains.
To prove this miracle?to prove that It Is
not the hardening of the skin, but the
change In Its color which protects It from
sunburn?Is an easy matter.
Let a pale person, unused to the sun,
stain one side of his face yellow, and. leav
ing the other side untouched, go out-In the
bright summer sun for a couple of hours.
The one side of his face Is no tougher, no
more hardened, than the other, yet the un
stained side "will bo Inflamed, blistered,
while the tan-colored one will be quite cool
and unhurt.
Sunburn Is a miracle, a protection to man
kind, us inexplicable and as wonderful as
the miracle of the arctic animals' change in ,

One of Many Unexplained Incidents in
Seaman's Life.
From Century.
Back on the quarter deck Medbury was
telling a curious story.
"Two years ago," he began slowly, with
the hesitation of a man who feels moved to
confidence against his better judgment, "we
were running up the Straits of Singapore,
when it suddenly came on thick. We were
close-hauled and ha*l just about wind
enough for steerageway, and we had the
foghorn going and were keeping a sha.-p
lookout, for we were right in the track of
shipping, and you know how vessels drift
together In a fog. no matler which way
they were heading before it thickened up.
Well, we hadn't heard a peep all day. and
toward night it seemed to be lifting a little,
when I heard the man at the wheel give a
little cry, and. looking astern, there, not
a cable's length away, was a dingy, rav
eled-out Portuguese brig slipping right
across our wake.
"They hadn't made a sound, and they
didn't even then, though our old man got
black In the face with cursing them for
thiir sins. There was a black-whiskered
old fellow, with his coat collar turned up
about his ears, at the wheel, but he scarce
ly looked our direction; only once he wag
ged his beard at us and threw one arm
over his head in a funny way, and then
squinted aloft again, paying no more at
tention to us than if we'd been so much
seaweed. But just forward the forerlgging
there was a row of sallormen leaning over
the rail, and their eyes followed us like a
lot of beady birds' eyes till the fog swal
lowed them up again.
"Well, the day after we reached Singa
pore the old man came aboard In a brown
study. He said he'd heard ashore that
there'd been a lot of dirty weather knock
ing about the straits, and a Portuguese
brig called the Villa Real was forty days
overdue. Well, she stayed overdue, and
not a splinter or spunyard of her ever
came ashore."
He paused a moment to relight his pipe
and then added: "On the stern of the Por
i tuguese brig we had seen, in big white let
ters a foot high, was the name of Villa
| Real."
Relics Found of the Finest Nature
Worshiping Shrine Known to Man.
From the Geographical Journal.
Richard N. Hall, who has given eight
years to the study of the ancient monu
ments In southern Rhodesia, says that none
of the hundreds of ruins lias been more
than partially explored. Many Important
ruins have been seen only by casual trav
elers, and the work of unearthing only a
part of the great Zimbabwe area would be
more than the labor of a lifetime. Still,
researches have made great progress In the
past few years. There are In Rhodesia no
less than .'KM) distinct ririns and groups of
ruins. Only a few scores of these are en
titled to rank as "ancient." . The larger
part of them probably do not date back of
the thirteenth, fourteenth arid fifteenth cen
There is overwhelming evidence at the
Great Zimbabwe of the ancient civilization
and arts poss. >1 by the builders of the
earliest period. The Zimbabwe temple is
the linest and most intact example of a
nature-worshiping shrine known to the
world. Its construction points unmistak
ably to some knowledge of geometry and
astronomy on the part of the builders. It Is
quite certain that- even the cruder method**
at Zimbabwe of applying this knowledge,
which was common to the ancient Semitic
peoples, were Imported from the near caa'
and did not originate in southeast Africa.
The right of ascension of the sun. tha
heliacal rising and the meridian p:-issag< 1
of stars, are l? lieved to have been noted at
Zimbabwe. These ancient builders were
also past masters in the science of military
defense, the walls showing that the builders
were military strategists of the highest or
der. Their gold ornaments, flnely designed
an dengraved. could not have been the work
of an uncivilized people, and the hundred*
of ancient gold mines show that they were

shoots, patches and pockets with marvelous
cleverness. It is estimated that from thesis

Japanese Gold Fish Fnrms.
From the Geographical .V'H^azfue.
Although the goldfish occurs in a wild
? tate in Japan, It is probable that China
some 4m) years ago furnished the stock
from which the wonderful varieties of Japa
nese goldtish have been bred. It Is re
ported that in feudal days, even when
famine was abroad in the land, and many
people were starving, the trade in efoldtish
was flourishing.
The demand at present appears to be
without limit, and the output shows a sub
stantial increase each year. Many thou
sand people make a living by growing gold
tish for market, and hundreds of peddlers
carry the rtsh through the streets and along
the country roads in wooden tubs sus
pended from a njioultier bar.

High Morals.
From the Pilgrim.
There are no manufactories in the coun
try. Each home is a factory and every
member of the family a hand.
Shoes are made from goatskins. 1 he
Ions stocking, worn over these in wading
through the snow, are knitted by the wo
men and children, and even the beautiful
broadcloth comes smooth and perfect from
the hand loom found in every house.

tume doi-s away with the necessity of fa- 1
ion book*. Young girls who are about to be
married need take no thought as to "where
withal shall they be clothed." When they
array themselves in the wedding garments
of their ancestor, two or three generations
remote, they are perfectly up-to-date In
the mat er of attire.
This simple life Is conducive to a state
of high morals, higher, probably, than in
any other part of the world. There is not
a i.rop of liquor manufactured In the Island
anil for Che 7N,<X"' population thete is but
one policeman. There neither a j'lil nor
any place of Incarceration for criminals,
nor yet Is there a court in which a high
crime could be tried.
The percentage of crime Is ?o small that
it does not warrant the expense of keeping
up a court. When a criminal trial becomes
necessary the offender is taken to Den
mark to answer to the law for his misdeeds.
The women are among tho most advanced
In the world. Their Woman s Political
league has a membership of 7.out), and they
enjoy more civil rights than the women of
almost any other country, having a v ilea
in all elections save that for members for
their legislative body.
