The average person takes pleasure in calling attention to errors in spell ing or grammar in signs. The mis takes furnish them a temptation to dis play their knowledge that is hard to resist. "Every now and then," said a local haberdasher, "I tix up a window sign with a misspelled word or an er ror in grammar in it. Dozens of people drop in to tell vie where it's wrong. Of course I act surprised and thank them. Then the chances are I sell them something." At it Kansas City theater there used to be an advertis ing curtain which bore the word "ver sus" spelled "verses." The word at tracted more comment than many of the acts .lid. It made people talk about the theater, and in the theatrical business to get the public to talking about things is the first step toward money making. So many people be gin to bother the bouse manager about t ie misspelled word, however, that he : aally bad to have it changed.—Kan- s is City Times. A Very Frrlnnlve Order. The Order of the Swan is a unique decoration. It has nothing to do with "Lohengrin," but was founded In 1443 by Elector Frederick 11. of Branden burg, surnamed the "Iron Jawed." Of all the orders of knighthood this is most remarkable, inasmuch as only one solitary member In Europe is en titled to wear it, and she is the wife of tbe reigning Prussian monarch— the German empress. The insignia Is very beautiful. It consists of a gold chain set with diamonds, alternated by a ruby heart to which is suspended a medallion of the Madonna and Child and to which in turn Is suspended a silver swan surrounded by v ring or frame of exquisite pearls. With this goes a superb s'ar to be worn on the left shoulder. Should tbe empress become a widow she would be compiled to relinquish the insignia and her membership of the Swan to the present crown prin cess. This order has been worn in turn by the wife of every sovereign occupying the throne of Trussta since 1-14:?, and it is nn object of Intense pride in the royal family. The term "greenhorn originated In this way: The pioneers of the west were much given to hunting deer. It was a fact known to early settlers that when the horn of a fawn began to grow there was a ring of green hair around the spot. It was considered a disgraceful thing for a hunter to kill a fawn, a cruel act, and the killing time was regulated by the growth 'of the horn. There was a sort of unwritten law that no one should kill a male fawn before its horn could be seen. A person who was so unthoughtful as to kill a deer under the proper age was called a "greenhorn." He was so named because the young horn of tbe deer and the hair around it were still green. The use of the appellation gradually spread until It was applied to all raw or inexperienced youths or persons easily^lmposed upon. *i SulliAan Seetenced for 3 Years Oral Sn Uivan was sentenced this morning of Judge -'tfiner, to serve n thr?e years term ia the itate pen itentiary.

Groat U irii-rM T.'ot C«r*<-< t TCrlteTS. There Is not a single great author in our literature in whose works numer ous errors have not been pointed out or thought to be pointed out. They are charged with viola ting rules involving the purity if tut the permanence of the language. A somewhat depressing in ference follows from the situation thus revealed. The ability to write English correctly does not belong to the great masters (•;' our speech. It is limited to the obscure men who have devoted themselves to the task of showing how far these vaunted writers have fallen short of the ideas of linguistic propri ety entertained by their unrecognized betters. As tt result of these critical crusades there is no escape from the dismal conclusion that the correct us,. of the language is not to be found in the authors whom every one reads with pleasure, but Is an accomplish ment reserved exclusively for those whjm nobody can succeed in reading at all.—Professor Thomas R, Louns bury in .Harper's Magazine. a Peer Man of Mutton. A "poor man of mutton" is a term '■ applied to a shou'.der of mutton in j Scotland after it has been served as a ; roast ut dinner and appears as a broil : ed bone at supper or at the dinner nest : day. One of the former earls of 8., | popularly known as "Old Bag," was j Indisposed at a hotel in London. ' When oau morning the landlord came : to enumerate rue gooa tningb h» Ms j larder and to prevail on his guest to j eat something, his lordship replied, i "Landlord, I think I could eat a morsel jof a poor man." This, together with i the extremely unprepossessing appear- I ance of his lordship's countenance, is ; said to have so terrified poor Boniface that he fled incontinently from the 1 room and tumbled headlong down stairs. Names of Gnn» on Men-of-war. "In the olden days," remarked a vet eran sea captain the other day, "the custom obtained of giving names to the guns on men-of-war. "In the case of the United States frigate Chesapeake the principal guns bore distinctive names, as follows: Brother Jonathan, True Blue, Yankee Protection, Putnam, Raging Eagle, Viper, General Warren, Mad Anthony, America, Washington, Liberty Forev er, Dreadnaught, Defiance, Liberty or Death, United Tars, Jumping Billy. Rattler, Bulldog, Spitfire, Nancy Daw son, Revenge, Bunker's Hill, Pocahon tas, Towser, Willful Murder. These names were engraved on small squares of copper plate."—Washington Star. Late details of the earthquake In India in April show that the calamity was one of the severest on record. The disturbed region was 520 miles in length, with a width not less than 360 miles, more than the area of the Brit ish kingdom. It is reported that this earthquake was felt at Bombay and at Calcutta, respectively 890 and 1,020 miles from the center of the disturb ance, in which case the area in which the commotion was perceptible nearly eauals the area of all Europe.
