They will i iall with joy the following letter upon i he same subject. The particulars here i set down will be new to most of us, and i highly instructive to students of philology: "A vocabulary of Esperanto consists of 'root words,’ to which one must add the proper grammatical ending to give the svord its sense as a noun, an adjective, m adverb, as the case may be. Thus, suppose we take the root ‘bon’—which on tains the idea good, and add to it the idjective ending A. We then have bona, ho Esperanto work for good. Suppose we tdd tlie noun ending O to the same root; he result would be bono, in English, a good.’ Again, suppose instead of either >f these endings we added the adverbial 2 to this root; the result would be bone, \hieh in English would be well. But to rive further modification of the root idea, here is provided a series of prefixes and lufTixes—about 40 in ail—which are used n conjunction with the grammatical end ngs. Thus, if we continue to use the oot bon, we can make its meaning just he opposite—that is, bad—by adding the trefix *mal’ to it; ‘malbona.’ (Mai in the ame way changes the meaning of any oot to which it is affixed, but does not ontain in its meaning any sense of bad tess. For example, alta means in Eng ,lish high, malalta means low.) Out of this oot we can make a verb by adding the t;ffix ig to it, thus, bonigi, meaning in English ‘to make good,’ the suffix ‘ig’ laving tlie property of adding to the root dea a sense of causing or making, and he letter T being the ending for the in initive of the verb. As this is merely o give you an idea of the construction f the language, I shall leave the satis action of your further courtesy to that oint—if you have any—to your own 1n tiative. ESPERANTO.” Curiosity and the desire to go further pto the examination of the wonderful method which is to make the whole world f one speech go without saying. Early San Francisco ‘‘Can you tell me in what year the city f San Francisco was laid out and incor orated? My grandfather was a “forty 'll cr,' and I have always heard that the arty that went out with him were pio eers. My neighbor is positive that they fci n<3 a town already built and that it was han Francisco. Who is right? . , “BEN J.

No Longer the Custom “I come to you in my perplexity, is it ever proper for a young woman to take a young man's arm in public places? "LACE.! if by "public places” you moan the . street, It is not now the custom for men ’ and women to walk arm in arm as rtir grandparents thought right and proper.
