Our last question in wortl Rtudy April 17 had to do wilh words derivcd directly from the LfttlDi A continuous stream of these WOrdl llowed into our language during the fifteenth and six teenth centuries, starting from the aDiveraltiet, cloiaten and cour.s, aml disseminatcd by the wrilersand preach ers df the lime. In order to eall your attention to the great numher of words in eotMtant use whieh came to 01 in thtl wny, you were asked especially those of you who are studying I.ntin to think of i.s many words ns possible that are derivcd from the single Latlrj wor.l J'ucio, " to ruake," of whieh one form is factum. Xo onc has sent a list of inob words; hut one memhcr of the clttb quotea Swinton as saying that there are live hundred of them. Count ing in the words whieh come from Jio, the passivc form of fado (wbicb in clude all our words ending in Jy, like "certify," "glorify," etc), this can not be any too higb an cstimate of the numher; for Lynde's " Class-Hook of Etymology " mentlona 11"J words that come from facio, and ncarly all of these have leveral derivatives. Famil iar examples are factor, faetory, manu faeture, etc. And now, in leaving this subject of word-sludy, the Scrihe would urge upon every girl and boy the importance of cultivating the acquaintance of the Unabridged Dlctlonary. If you have not a copy in all your homes, it is to be hoped you have it for reference in all school-rooms. If not, lose no time in petitioning your town fathers for a copy to use there. No other uninspired book contaius betweeu its covers so much help of every kind suited to the needs of all. Let it be one of your am bitions sometime to have an ' Un abridged " of your own; and, if you make good use of it, the world can never gct far ahead of you in general knowludge. Please do not think that this is a special hobby of your Scribe. Others also are calling attention to the same subject. Doubtless many of you have the Sunday-School Time in your homes; and you may have noticed an arlicle, a few weeks ago, on " The Use of the IMctionary," whieh showed how much that was helpful and interesting in Bible study could be found in the Unabridged Dictionary, and one of the illuslrations given was a word whieh had already been assigned for you to study the word " tribulation," whieh the writer of that article said contains " a whole sermon, and one that can hardly fail to interestthe olderboys and girls." And now in one of the last numbers of the same puplication over half a page is given to another subject whieh we have been studying. It is a review of " Our Oldest Book about Hooks." This old book, entitled " Phllobiblon," was the work of Kichard de llury, who lived from 12S7 to 1345. It has just beennewly publislied, and indescribing it the readers of the Sunddy-School Timex are given this glimpse into the tiraes wlien it was written a glimpse whieh will seem quile familiar to those who have followed our studies thus far. Hefore Cbaucer had given dlgnlty to our language, the writer says, " De ISurv, as a malter of course, enshrined his gooil counsel in the everlasting I.atin of the churcli aml the universities. He recommended no Knglish books not that he despiscd things present, but what Knglish books were then wortli mentiouing? The tongue of Alfred and Caedmon, and the writers of the Chronicle, had loug been unin telliglble, wliile ' ron lug from the North, duotlle gold from the South' had not yet been compounded into our 1 Homan-Saxon-Danish-Xorman-English.' " Heturning now to the Klizabethan periotl, we have received the following answers to the remaining tpiestions of April 17: (-') The ehief literary works of Sir Pbllip Sidney were. the " Arcailia " and the Defense of I'oesy." (8) Blr PbUip Sidney was the idol of his times, as well as the espeeial pet of his queen morfl, perhaps, for liis ro mantic nalure thau for his skill in diplomaey. Yet here antl there one may 166 glimpses of great eourage and a certain dernocracy of spirit not often found iu that ag. Two instances showing these ehar acteristies are given by the writer of the aboveanswers, whieh may be briefly Btated. One is his " Uemonstrance " addressed to Queen Elizabeth againBt her proposed marriage to the Duke of Anjou. The other was a quarrel with the Earl of Oxford, arising out of n dispute at a tennis court, whieh would have ended in a ducl had not her nmjesty interfered and forbiddcn it. " When admonished by the queen of tho differ cnce in degrec between carls and gentle men, Sidney replied that, although Ox ford was a great lord by birth, alliance and grace, yet he was no lord over him." At the age of thirly-two Sidney was sent with a body of cavalry to assist the I'rotestants of Holland in throwing off the yoke of Spain, antl in a skirmish near Zutphcn, September 22, 158G, he was mortally wounded. "The anec dote rccorded of him in his dying moments, though it has been told a thousand times, must ever be rcpeatcd when Sindey'l character is considered. Afler he had received his death wound, being overeome with thirst he callcd for drink. It was brought to him im mediately; but the momenthc was lift ing it to his moulh a poor soldier was carried by, mortally wounded, who fixed his eyes eagerly upon it. Sidney, seeing this, instantly delivered it to him, with these memorable words: ' Thy necessity is yet greater than mine?' " We have received no correctsolution, as yet, to the question as to whether figures always tell Ihe truth. One boy writes, " Your ' women and ehiekens ' problem for ' the other hoys and girls ' is a complete puzzle to me. I can lind no solution of it whatever." AVe will givc the solution next wcek if you all " give it up." Hoping to lind somcthing of interesl to all, we will continue the method of having one of our questions eaeh weck on miscellaneous topics, and only two on the regular work of the Hill CotlDtry C'lub, and any one who would like to suggest topics or contribute questions to be considered in this connection will please do so. (1) What event is alluded to in the verses above on " The Tea-kettle's Sonc?" (2) Who isthe greatest dramatic poel iu Knglish literature? (:'.) When and where was he born? Address No. 18 South Loring street, Lowell, Mass. obcrtiscments. Tho Mysteriona Addition. This is a trick of ehildish simplieity. deending upon an elementary arith metieal principle. You take a handful of coins, or other small objects, and invite another person to do the same. Tell him to privately look at his coins and tell whether the numberis odd or even. Request those present to observe that you can divinc his most secret inten tions, and, as a proof of your ability, state that if this number is odd, you will add enough to give him a handful, and make his number even, or if his number iB even, the total shall be odd. Hequest him to drop his coins into a hat whieh is held over his head bo that you can not know how many he has; then drop in a quantity from your own bandt Then ask him to count the coins, and the number will be odd or even, as you predicted. The secret lies in the fact that if you add an odd number to an even number, the result will be odd. You have only to take care, therefore, that the number you add shall always be odd. 1 have seen a boy puzzle a large company of people with this little trick, and even the shrewdest of them failed to guess the reason why. Exchangi . A Strange Nestling. King Alfred weut out to hunt one day with his horses aud hounds, and as he and his huntsmen were riding through a wood they heard a ery that scemed to come from a tree that grew over a rock near at haud. So the king sent one of his men to the tree to see what made the cry. The man went to the tree, and, olimblDg into it, found a great eaule's nest of sticks in a fork of the branehes; but, much to his astonish ment, he saw a little child lying at the bottom of the nest. It was warmly wrapped up in a puiple cloth and had golden bracelets on its little arms. So he took it up gently, and descending ihe tree, carried the child carefully to the king. Alfred waB as much sur priseil as his man was, but he sent it home to his palaee, givine orders for it to be well taken eare of by the women. As the cblld had been found in a nest it was called Nestling, antl was known by that name afler he grew up to be a ItrOOg man and distinguished himself, for no one ever found out whose child he was or who had put him in the eagte'l nest when he was a baby.

COMUIBeiOMEH TaNMEB htl grantcd a pension to Frederiek Sehweigcr of Lime Rock, Penn. Theolalmant, white in Washington, in 1805, contracted a UOld whieh resulted in neuralsjia and fjoally in total bllndnets. Ile flled a olatm for a pension some years ago, whieh was njeeted by Commitstoner Blaok on the ground of fraud, A iub (equent invcsti:ation,however,showeil, it is sa'd, that tlie elaim was not in any sense a fraud, but entirely meritorious. Hence the pension. The elaimant will receive 118,000 arrcars and 872 per month hereafter. Last week Assistant Seeretary llus sey rcndered a decisinn in the ease ot ( harles U. Ararnum, late sergeant in Company II, Twenty-elghth Maine, who appliedfor a reratingand Inerease of pension, allesiin; total diaablltty, The adverae decuion, from whieh an appeal is taken, was based solely upon the opinion of Ihe medieal referee that the comblned disabllltiei of ihe claira ant did not result in lneapacity for the performanee of any manual labor, and that he was then in reeeipt of the full Bmount of pension to whieh he was en titled under the law. The merit of the elaim was not dlscusaed. The aaeistanl seeretary, in his opinion, says that the question as to whether tlie elaimant was totally Incapacitated for perf orming manual labor by his eombined disabili ties, whieh are all accepted as of serv ice ori;in, was not neeessarily a purely medieal one, but was also a question of faet, to be determined by the weight of evidence, and not by the professional opinion of the medieal referee alone. The preponderanee of the evidence in this ease is found by the assistant seere tary to sustain the allegations of the elaimant, aud it is ordered that his pen sion be rerated. Assistant Skckktauy Bcssey ren dt red an itnportaut declsion in the pen sion ease of Mary E. MeNeil, widow of Alexander MeNeil. The ease involvcs the important question of "line of duty," and Assistant Seeretary Hus sey's interpretation of the law wilh respeet to it is even broader and more liberal than in the Ammerman ease. The elaim was originally rejected upon iheground that the soldier ineurred his tnjuries, whieh are alleged to have re sulted in his death, when not in the line of his military duty. It appears from the stateinent that the aoldier re ceived the injuries while engaged in a friendiy wretling-match with a com raile. There does not appear to have been any rnulice or bad blood about the atTair, and the injury seems to have been purely aceidental. Mr. Hussey says: " He was at the time in eamp, where his duty as asoldier required him to be, and indulging in a harniless and innocent athletie sport of a friendiy character he was not aeting in violation of any of the rules and regulations of the serviee, nor disobeying any com manda l his luperior omcera, nor con ducting himself in an uuseemly or un-soldier-likc manncr, nor doing any thlng oalculated todisturb or tranigresi military diicipline and good order. The government placedthe soldier and his oomrade in the position where it was hoth natural and proper for them to in dulge in such athletie sports and exer eise, wilh the eonsent of their eom mandins offloera, and I oondder that it would now be an altogether too nar row and teehnical view to hold thal an accident retultins tberefrom, under the eircumttancea of this ease, would he ineurred out of the line of duty, and therefore not pensionable." For these reasons the fornier deeision is reversed, and the conimissioner of pensions is direeted toplace the name of the widow on the pension rolls. In ipeaking this deeision Assistant Seeretary lius sey said that he was of the settled opinion thata soldier is in line of duty, withlo the nieaning of the pension laws, when hc is not engaged iu violating any order, army rule. or regulation, or violating any instruetion of his luperioi officer for tbe pollee regulation of the eamp. $100"Bewr4$100 The readers of this paper will be pleased to learn that there is at least one dreaded diseaso that scienee has been able to eure iu all ifs stages, antl that is eatarih. llall's Catarrh Curo ia the only positive eure now known to the medieal fraternlty.
