Meaning of Herzegovina. Herzegovina was picked out by Mark Twain as a typical hard word which a man might be proud to know how to pronounce, as he did himself. It would save a lot of trouble If we might call Herzegovina "the duchy," which Is all that the name probably means. Some have held that "the Herzegovina,' as a select few call it, is Turkish for "the land of stones," but the prevailing Tlew is that it comes from the Ger man "berzog" (duke), that title having been conferred upon the bolder of this country by the emperor in 1448. "Her sog" is our own forefathers' "here toga," army chief, the name they gave In time of war to the "alderman" of times of peace.

"No, I dunno. but I know I be a fearful age." was the only estimate that could be drawn from him. "All right; well try to get at it in another way." said the pedestrian, bringing out his pencil and notebook. "Now, how old were you when you left school T "I be nine, sur, when I finished schulinV "And whit did you do then?" "Well, I was boy fur Farmer Giles fur t fteen year." "And after that?"
