NUMBER OF ENGLISH WORDS.
How Many Words Are There In
No one can say how many words .
there are in the English language, be
cause there are many words of doubt
ful standing. The ''Century Dictionary"
contains about 225,000 words, and the
new edition of the "Standard Diction
ary" lays claim to over 300,000. Of
these many are obsolete, and many
Others are rarely used. Science has
aded a vast vocabulary of polysyllables
that are scientific formulae rather
than real words. They have no place
ill general literature. The ordinary
English vocabulary may be said to
contain from 30,000 to 50,000 words, the
latter estimate being large. No single
writer of literature has used so many
W tne lower number named.
' Shakespeare, whose vocabulary is
larger than that of any other English
poet, unless it be Browning, used
about 15,000 words, while Milton,
whose range was narrower, employed
only about half that number. The vo
cabulary of the illiterate has been set
as low as 300 words, but this must be
exceptional. It is more likely that the
ordinary uneducated person uses from
2000 to 3000 words, while, of course
he Is familiar with several thousand
more, whkh he rei-OKuiKes in print,
but does not himself use. The common
estimate of the average vocabulary of
educated people is from 5000 to 6000
words, but In this case the number of
words which are not used is enormous
ly Increased. A well-read college
graduate should be familiar with per
haps 100.000 words, while tn the course
of a year he might not use 5000 of them
In his writing or conversation. Short
hand reporter, find about 2500 word
signs and contractions ample for rep
resenting the words which are com
monly used In public speaking. Classmate.

THE ORIGINAL REMEDY THAT "KILL8 THE DANDRUFF GERM."
Every school child should know that baldness it a
contagious disease, caused by a microbe. Prof. Unna,
of Hamburg. Germany. discovered that dandruff,
itching scalp, falling hair, and final baldness are
produced by a germ or microbe that passes from one
bead to another, where It burrows into the scalp and
by multiplying and extending deeper and deeper Into
the hair follicles, saps the life of the hair root and
, , IT TAKES YEAR8
to produce complete baldness, for the action of the
dandruff microbe is not constant in every case. It is
governed by predisposition, by the state of health,
by environment, but particularly by the endeavor
made to combat the growth and development of the
dandruff microbes, which can only be destroyed with
This new antiseptic scalp germicide is past the
experimental stage. It was made to destroy the
germ that causes dandruff and falling hair, and by
coaxing energy back into the Impoverished bulbs, It
enables the hair to grow naturally and luxuriantly.
Thousands of letters from physicians, clergymen and
laymen tell the same story of Its wonderful success.

rules for scalp cleanliness that the antiseptic qual
ities of Newbro's Herpicide make It the most de
