Office at THE ORIGIN OF "FUDGE." Expression Now Ommon Is Not Easy to iVece. Where did that very common word "fudge" come from, and what does it really mean? The antiquarian''of tho Boston Journal sajft \he first appear ance of the word literature is the description of the cell of Lady Blarney and Miss Carolina Wllhelmina Amelia Skeggs on the Vicar of Wakefield's household: "But previously 1 should have mentioned the very Impolite be havior of Mr. Burchell, who, during this discourse, sat with his faeo turned to the fire, and at the conclusion of every sentence would cry out 'Fudge!' an expression which displeased us ail, and in rome measure damped the ris ing spirit of the conversation." Doe3 the word come from the provincial French "fuche" or the Ix German "futsch"? Or shall we trace it to the story of 1700 quoted by the elder D'Israeli: "There was, sir, in our times, one Captain Fudge, who always brought home his owners a good cargo of lies, so much that now aboard the ship the sailors, when they hear a great lie told, cry out, 'You fudge It!'"

When aa effort was made to rally the breaking line he noticed a backward movement among the men. "'Dn it, boys!' he cried, 'what are you dodging for? If I can sit on my horse and the bullets go over my head, they certainly can't hit you.' His presence of mind stopped the panic."New York Times. A Colorado Goose Story.
