PUPILS U8E NEW FORMS OF
WORDS IN PREFERENCE
TO THE OLD.
A New York City principal, Van
Evrle Kllpatrick, head of Public
School No. 52, has jnst completed an
Interesting pedagogical test of the effect
of simplified spelling on children.
Mr. Kilpatrlck's conclusions are that
the simplified rorm or many woruB
recommended by the Simplified Spelling
Board is the natural forpi for children.
Of hia test Mr. Kilpatrlck
"On October 24, I gave a spelling
test to all pupils in the last fire years
in the course In Public School No. 62.
To these children I gave from the
Simplified Spelling Board's list the
following ten words not yet commonly
Drest, dropt, fixt, lookt, mist, kist,
lupt, nipt, stepl, stopt.
"An examination of the papers
showed some interesting results. The
tendency of the children to end the
words In the above group In "t" was
C 2-7 per cent. This tendency varied
In the different grades. In the lower
grades the tendency to end these
words In "t" was much stronger than
In the "th and Sth years where there
was no tendency to use this form, as
the children had learned to use the
"ed" ending. I found In the 4th year
on Italian hoy, who evidently was
used to phonetic spelling of Italian.
v;ho spelled 90 per cent, of these
words with the't" ending. Most significant
of all. however, was the fact
that 21 5-7 per cent, of these wofds,
or nearly 1-4, were- missed on account
of the failure of the children to double
the consonants In spelling them with
the "ed" ending.
"As a second test I gave the following
ten words from the Simplified
Spelling Hoard's list:
"Ax, bark, color, draft, center, gipsy,
mama, mold, pigmy, omelet."
"1 found that fit 5-7 per cent, of all
the pupils used these simplified spellings.
The tendency to use the more
anomalous spellings was most marked
in i no an nnn Rin years, a iuci which
seems to Indicate (hat constant trainins
lias overcome the natural tendency
of the children to spell simply and
to avoid the superfluous letters. It j
It unnecessary to say that apparently
the expenditure of time and energy to
overcome the natural tendency of the
child, which. In Itself, Is logical, Is a

PLENTY OF GOOD TIMBER TO SELECT
FROM FOR THIS IMPORTANT
Among the mitnv stibfecto o!
political controversv this wlntet
none promises to be more spirited
than the election of a president o!
the State Senate. Out of the thirty
Senators corn posing the tipper house
of the West Virginia congress, between
twenty-four and twenty-five
of them want to be president. Those
who are not openly hankering for
such honors are the Democratic Senators.
who recognise the facr that
they are hopelessly In the minority.
There will be five or six of them
about the same number as In the
Senate two years ago. and th?v will
not struggle for preferrment, at

body of men, barrlne their political
proclivities, says the Parkersburg
Among the Republican aspirants
may be mentioned 0. S. Marshall, ol
Hancock county, who crime very
near getting It two years ago anil
who would make a fine presiding
officer. Senator Marshall enjoys the
enviable distinction of being almost
an exact counterpart In personal ap
penrance of Mark Twain. He also
possesses other qualifications, an,I

| If he were a resident of Marlon, along
with his other qualifications he would
j have a cinch. As it is. he will give
his competitors a lively hustle,
j Senator Alex. McVeigh Miller, of
[Alderson, on the Greenbrier, side of
the river, is another possibility, and
a strong one. He is one of the
ablest members of the Senate. In the
same side of the State is Senator
lohnson, of McDowell county, who
was distinguished two years ago by
his pistol toting bill, which sought
to put the carrying of firearms on a
license basis. He is a good speaker,
and would hold the reins gracefully
if elevated to the senatorial driving
seat. These are only a few of the
| many members of that august body
who would not flinch If the presidential
hnnnrs were tendered tltetil.
Senator Forman, of Grunt county.
Senator McKown, of Roane, Senator
Colconl, of Kanawha, Senator Mont!

Senator Gartian, of Wood, all have
claims which coulil not be lightly ignored
