HOW PHRASES ORIGINATE.
Some of the phrases in com

Take, for instance, "There's
many a slip 'twixt cup and lip.."
This dates back to an ancient
king of the island of Samos, in
the Grecian Archipelago.
The king had planted a vine
yard, but one of his slaves, whom
he had ill-treated, predicted that
broken into the vineyard and
was doing great damage, says a
The king hastily put down his
untouched cup, siezed his weap

chase he was killed, so the proph

"Done to a turn" is said to
have originated from the mar
tyrdom of St. Lawrence. He

of Chicago. Under her able
direction Hull House has devel

Eusope, it is pointed out, there is a fixed
standard, which is not enly reliable, but
satisfactory to hopgrowers as well as to
hopbuyers. The whole question is dis

which has been prepared by W..W.
Stoekberger, one of the hop experts of
the department. ; '
to attend lectnres, debates and
theatrical entertainments; to
gain instructions in industrial
arts; to take part in its club life;
and to study literature, science,
history, civics, the languages
and the fine arts. Originally it
comprised only four rooms on

fame has gone forth over the
