SCHOtASUCUS GETS HOSTILE Take's "Marriagable Girl" to Task for Faulty Speech—-Says She Talks Like a Trollop The flurry created by "Marriag able Girl's" letter to the Daily World still continues. The Seattle Times yesterday con tained an editorial on the Wenatchee matrimonial muss, and today the World is in receipt of the original letter, denouncing her as a devotee of. degrading slang, and intimating that she is the author of her own lonely misery. This letter, signed is here reproduced: Wenatchee, June Sth. To the editor of the World: Apropos ' A Marriagable Girl's" letter: Can anyone read such a letter, containing such a question, without reading the answer between the lines? This letter, a collection of slang phrases and pointless remarks intended to be witty, is in itself an open answer to the question. Dear girl, such language is enough to drive any man from you. Of course, you will say "that is not so," but have you not confessed that such is the case and asked the reason? Can you expect any rising young mac who expec/ some day to enter the elite of society to ally himself with one who uses the language of a trol lop, and that in the most widely cir culated sheet in th e county? You yourself, have given the reason plain er than any newspaper article can express, why you will continue in spinsttrhcod unless united with an undesirable. There is a saying, and a wise one, that, "In America every woman is a lady until proven other wise." Which way does your point less array of slang point. Not very long ago several Wenat chee men (I mean men, not boys) were commenting upon the marriage of a rather worthless character of the community, to a young lady. L. deplored the circumstances. N ad vanced the theory that possibly this was her only chance and G. quoted a verse which not only explained the foregoing but may also apply to your self: She could ramble 'round the wood lands, She could fence and she could box She could row upon the river. she could clamber 'mong the rocks, Sh e could do some heavy bowling And play tennis all day long. But she couldn't help her mother. For she "wasn't very strong." Dear girl, leave the slang to Rud yard Kipling and let us nope you: weak point is not just above you:' eyes. SCHOLASTICUS. HONOR 10 AN INDIAN, Monument Proposed For Inventor of Cherokee Alphabet. TRIBUTE OF HIS TRIBESMEN. Sequoyah, the "American Cadmus," Is to Have a Marble Shaft Near Mul drow, I. T.—Sequoyah Seal Incorpo- rated In Seal of Oklahoma. Scquoyah. inventor of the Cherokee alphabet, for which he has been des ignated the "American Cadmus" and "the greatest of all Indians," is to be commemorated by a monument, writes a Tulsa (I. T.) correspondent of the Chicago Post. It will be erected at Muldrow, in the Cherokee Nation, which is but a few miles distant from the lodge in which Sequoyah lived while a resident of Indian Territory. Tbe old house is still standing. The Sequoyah Monument association will raise the funds and have charge of the erection of the shaft. A large part of the amount needed has been guaranteed. The monument will be of native mar ble from the quarries at Marble City, with a base of sandstone obtained along a road near Muldrow which was much traveled by Sequoyah. The cost will be about $3,000, most of which will be subscribed by Cherokee tribes men, who hold the name of Sequoyah in reverence. The idea to erect a monument to Sequoyah was suggested in 1891 by J. S. Holden of Fort Gibson, but not until a few days ago did the enter prise take definite shape. Finally a meeting was called at Muldrow, and the Sequoyah Monument association was organized. Now it is believed there will be no more delay. But little is known of the history of Sequoyah. He was born in the old Cherokee Nation, in Georgia, about 1707. His father was a German trader named George Guist. and hia mother was a full blood Cherokee, whom tribal historians describe as one of the most beautiful and queenly of her race. | Sequoyah waa one of the first Chero keea to come to Indian Territory, ar riving about 1837, then an_ oM man. He remained six years, then- went wesj. He died in New Mexico in 1843.' His ■^c^ot^«^' :^m->mt^B^.m cafed. ■ •<■ -r; ■: . •. Sequoyan invented tbe Cherokee al phabet between the years 1822 and 1824. It consists of eighty-five charac ters. He first taught it to his little daughter, then to others. In 1831 the, Cherokee Phoenix, the first newspaper i of the Cberokees, appeared at New | Echota, Ga. By this time many of the Cherokees bad become familiar with tbe alphabet, and the newspaper was welcomed by the tribesmen, who were pioneers of civilization among the abo rigines. In 1843 the Cherokee Advo cate, the first newspaper In Indian Ter ritory, was started at Tahlequnh, the historic capital of the Cherokee na tion. It was printed in Cherokee and English. When the separate statehood move ment was started in 1895, the conven tion which met at Muskogee to draft a constitution for the proposed state to be made of Indian Territory selected the name Sequoyah for the common wealth. The name Sequoyah was sug gested by the following eulogy, writ ten by J. S. Holden. which appeared in the Fort Gibson Post Oct. 15, 1904: The Cadmus 6f his race— A man without a peer: He stood alone—his genius shown Throughout a hemisphere. Untutored, yet so great; Grand and alone his fame— Tes, grand and great, the future state Should bear Sequoyah's name. The Sequoyah seal has been incor porated in the seal of Oklahoma, and the constitution to be submitted to the vote of the people Aug. G includes sec tions from the Sequoyah constitution. Strange as it may seem, Sequoyah was an illiterate man and could not speak English. QUEST OF HALL OF FAME. Dr. Roux Heads List, With Edison Third and Roosevelt Eighth. Pittsburg and Chicago Halls of Fame must look to their laurels, says a spe cial cable dispatch from Paris to the New York Herald. A Parisian even ing newspaper is conducting a contest among its readers to determine the real celebrities of the world. Dr. Itoux, director of the Pasteur institute, heads the list, followed by Mme. Sarah Bernhardt. But Mr. Edi son, an American inventor, is a close third, with M. Santos-Dumont fourth, while Mr. Roosevelt is eightJi. Mr. Roosevelt and Mr. Edison are the only Americans on the list, which, however, contains no Englishman and no German. Pieces of a Boat For Souvenirs. The racing shell in which the Cam bridge university crew beat the Har vard crew last year will be cut into sections and each member of the Eng lish crew will receive one as a me mento of the victory, says a London cable dispatch to the New York Sun. The coxswain will receive the stem. Each oarsman will receive the section from his stretcher to the end of the carrier of his sliding seat. The bow will be kept as a trophy by the Cam bridge university boat club. Future Intemperance. According to Arthur Symonds, "there is more drunkenness in a book than in all the vineyards of France." (From a report of a future police court case: ''Prisoner said he was sorry, but it had I'i-eu his birthday, and. one thing lead tog to another, he had taken a para graph too much.")— London Globe. Great Musician's Eccentricities. Polls were the idols, after his he loved instruments, of Domenico Dra gonetti, tbe king of the double bass. He had a huge collection of these pup pets dressed in various national cos tumes, and wherever Dragonetti went the dolls were sure to go. That was only one of this eccentric genius' pecul iarities. Jle would never play unless his dog were in the orchestra, and no body would have got a note out of him unless he had been permitted to sit in the orchestra next to the stage door. This was a precaution to enable him to save, his wonderful instrument in case of fire. The instrument itself he brought from the monastery of St. Tietro when on a visit to Vincenza. and when he died he bequeathed it to St. Mark's, Venice, to be used at solemn services.—London Standard. A Queer Coincidence. While a serial story was running in a certain magazine a lady in Johannes burg wrote to the publisher asking whether Christian Lys (the author's norn de plume) was assumed or not. She herself was a Mrs. Lys, who was trying to trace an ancestor of her late husband, who was a descendant of Joan of Arc. Mr. Brebner, tbe author in question, wrote assuring her that his pen name was a family one, his forbears having come from Aberdeen. Strangely enough, it came out that her family came also from Aberdeen and their name was Brebner.—Pall Mall Gazette. Silence and Science. Before it was determined scientific ally that smoke Is waste. "ioke was fixed as the final indication iind proof of prosperity. Today a smokeless chimney means nothing less than thrift and good management Similar ly we now hear that noise is proof of urban life, progress and activity. We may answer that noise Is loss as surely as smoke Is waste. Decreased comfort Is loss and noise decreases comfort. Disturbed minds are loss through a re duction of mental force. But these and similar consequences are indirect loss. There Is direct loss also. A rat tling car means worn bearings and a short lived vehicle. Otherwise rail roads would not spend so much on their roadbeds, and they would run trains at higher speed.—Detroit Free Press.
