STALE WORDS PLEASE SOME
Many Writers Seem to Take Great De
light in Using Threadbare Phrases
at Every Opportunity.
There is a style of mind which can
not express itself except in stale and
threadbare, words and phrases, re
marks a writer in the Knickerbocker
Press. The more ancient and outworn
the language, the better it pleases
such folk. To them all brides are
blushing, all banknotes crisp, all citi
zens prominent. To them the by-and
by is ever sweet: their tomeL are
musty, their decorations tasty and
every fire is a conflagration if not a
holocaust. J. Pluvius makes rain for
them, their sun is Old Sol, their fui
ture dim and distant and their tomb
silent. "Bids fair" makes them chortle
in glee. They are best pleased. too,
when they can clap quotation marks
around a word or phrase, to set it off
with the unction that n:akes , born
gossip's Inflections a torture to manly
itroiaides was the name Gelett Bur
gess gave to these unhappy fragments
of languiage, ove(rworked until their
savor has gone from thenm. But Bur

a bromide, si:, e the bromide have

Barrie, in the days when his style
was forming, dreaded this failing. Ar
tistic sensibilities as keen as his
shrank from the trite. In his room
he kept only a few books. One of
them was Bartlett's "Quotations."
When, in his writing, a phrase or line
came tripping off his pen that seemed
to him to have been said or heard
before, he turned to Bartlett. If he
found it listed there, among the "fa
miliar," out it went. He was a writer.
WALKING FERN GROWS HERE
Is Native of the United States and is
Found as Far West as State
The walking fern, some specimens
of which have been installed at the
Children's Museum-of the Brooklyn
Institute, is a native of the United
States. It found in certain localities
of the eastern states and westward to
Kansas, usually growing on moss-cov
ered rocks, or near the bases of cliffs.
Because of its peculiar manner of
growth, it has been given Latin names
meaning "fruit-dot" and "rooting leaf,"
writes Miss M. 8. Draper in the Chil
dren's Museum News.
The fronds, when fully developed,
are from six to twelve or qfteen
inches long, their tips reaching down
Into the moss or crevices of the rocks,
where they develop young plants of
two or three tiny fronds. At a later
stage, a mass of fine rootlets forms
and holds the little rosette in posl
tion. After several months, the long
frond to which the little plant is at
tached becomes withered, and the
young fern sends out fronds which
produce new plants. It is said that
in a few years a single plant under
favorable conditions will develop into
a whole colony.
Divorces in Canada.
Canada's divorce court is never en
tered except by members of the
wealthy class-and not frequently by
them. Only four to six divorces are
granted in Canada annually. There
is no record of a poor man ever get
ting a divorce in the Dominion, it is
said. The average cost of a divorce
In Canada is $2,000 and the decree is
granted for only one offense-marital
aidelity. The legislature at Ottawa
appeints a divorce committee eah
selon and all cses are settled by
this committee. There is no appeal to
a divorce action. Those living in the
western part of the Dominion have
to pay much more for a decree than
these living in the east because of the

THE JAPANESE GARDEN
By LEONARD HESS.
She had prayed as fervently as the
boy's own family that he might re
cover, and, perhaps, during the crisis
her voice had been raised in a fervor
surpassing that of all the rest. So
when the boy's sister informed her
that the boy would pull through and
that he was, in fact, already out of
danger, a smile of triumph flickered
on her lips and she turned her eyes
heavenward as if his recovery had
been a special dispensation of Plrovi
dence for her alone. The boy was
twenty-two; she was thirty-eight.
Her slight figure pressed on its way
through the crowds. lHer brow. usual
ly clear and serenel under the hair
streaked with gray. was now furrowed
and under her large hat her eyes
shone Irightly. What gift should she
send Larry lioldln for his convales
cence? lIe was fond of reading-hut
almost everyonle would send books.
Slthe peeped from window to window,
perplexed by the search. At last her
eye lit on a Japanese garden and she
gave a gasp of delight as she came to
a quick conclusion, which left logic
quite prostrate behind her. She was
very partial to Japanese gardens; so
Larry must he partial to them, too!
A sleek little Jap bowed her into the
cool recesses of the shop. dimly green
with the leaves of multitudinous small
plants. She looked about her and
then selected her garden. Larry had
always talked a great deal about the
She was the friend of Larry's oldest
sister, and Larry himself was very

who was fond of her, as she knew
well enough. Larry was in her
thoughts constantly. In the beginning,
she had felt toward him as toward a
young brother, but it was not long be
fore there came a subtle change, she
forgetting that she was thirty-eight
and he only twenty-two.
It was a shock to find how thin his
face looked on the white pillow. There
was but feeble strength in the hand
with which he clasped Celia Darrow's
"Hello. Celia-awfully glad to see
you !" He held her hand and gazed up
at her. "Thanks awfully for that."
He nodded toward a table at his side.
On the table stood the Japanese gar
den. with its dwarf trees and bridges
"You like itt" Her voice thrilled.
"Splendid! I've had It placed there,
you see-close, where I can always
look at it. I've been looking at It ever
since it came. How thoughtful you
She turned quickly away.
"You've been reading? Shall I read
to you now" ,
As she touched the book he went
"No, thanks; don't read. Just talk
to me. I'm always glad to have you
She dropped her eyes and struggled
with a button of her glove. Her
breath quickened. Larry's eye roved
to the Japanese garden. To herself,
Celia Darrow repeated over and over
his words, "rm always glad to have
you with me." They did not speak.
Every time Larry looked toward her
he smiled, and when it was time to
go she rose In a flutter, taking his
hand, a blush spreading over her pale,
"Thanks again, Cella," he mur
mured. "Do come in tomorrow I"
She dropped his hand and hurried
out, saying to herself: "He loves me;
he loves me!"
She returned to him almost every
day till he was well, and at every
leavetaking she said to herself: "He
A month later, she was reading at

were with Larry Holden. Suddenly,

When We Feared the Indians.
At a recent gathering of life insiur
ance men one of tile old tinmers exhib
ited a copy of a ipermit which.l had
been attachedl to a policy issued hl
1868. This permit real:

When a l,'itr forg';ottenll (uollil died

dred thousaind the entire villIaCe. after
having recovered from tihe sllhk. fell
to wondering whether the faded little
spinster, after having for sixty-three
years pinched and scraped and pllin
sewed just to keep soul and body to

fort from her eleventh hour opulence.
The state of little Miss Mittfleld's
mind was revealed when her next door
neighbor inquired what she should do
with her money - did she mean to
"Save it!" lier eyes flashed with
new found scorn. "Listen to me, t

Coffee With Milk.
For many years after coffee was first
drunk in Europe. says the Manchester
Guardian. no one thought of mixing it
with milk any more than the Turks
and Arabs do now. The use of coffee
au lait seems to date from 1687. Mme.
de Sevigne. writing to her daughter in
that year. said that a doctor much In
vogue "has taught us to mix sugar and
milk with our coffee. They make a t
most delightful compound, which will t
help to support me through the rigors
In a letter written seven years ear
her she had mentioned as an eccentric
proceeding on the part of Mme. de la
Sabliere that "she drinks milk to her
tea." Readers of "Unbeaten Tracks
In Japan" may remember that one of
the Alnus thought it disgusting that
Mrs. Bishop should drink milk and
pollute her tea with a fluid having so
strong a smell and taste.
Rip Van Winkle-Himself.
Joseph Jefferson used to tell a story
of his visit to a village in the Catskill
mountains. He was taking a cup of
tea in the hotel when he heard a negro
waiter giving a detailed account of
"Yes, sah." he continued. "Rip went
up into de mountains, slep' for twenty
years, and when he come back hyar in
dis berry town his own folks didn't
"Why." said the listener. "you don't
believe the story's truer!"
"True? Ob course it is. Why," point
ing to Jefferson. "dat's de man."
"There goes a man who boasts that
he has never bought a gold brick."
"Reminds me of the fellow who says
he has never told a lie."
"Yes. He reminds me of the chap
who says the upkeep of his automobile
is next to nothing."
"And he's in the same category with
the man who says he never was sick a
day in his life." - Birmingham Age
