THE GREAT M'EWEN.
This Remarkable Blan Will Make This
City a Visit.
ProfesBor McEwen's exhibitions of the
occult power, of mesmerism and hyp
notism, which will be given in the Vogt
opera house next week, will nndoubt-
edly be instructive, enjoyable and mirth
provoking. Prof. McEwen has displayed
his powers in nearly all the principal
citiea of America, and in no place has
be failed in having crowded houses.
Prof. McEwen has hundreds of testi
monials from leading professional men
all over the country, and there is little
doubt that one coming with sucli rec
ommendations can be other than a first
class artist in bis especial line. During
the time that he "performed in Reed's
opera house in Salem and Cordray's in
Portland, the press and the people went
wild over him, and there is little doubt
that the same will be the case in our
city. . His performances are genuine,
clean, elevating and wonderful, and are
worthy of our very best patronage.

ENGLISH GOOD ENOUGH.
There Is Seldom Any Reason for Em
ploying Foreign Words.
Is there any reason for vising' a for
eign language when the idea can be ex
pressed with equal clearness, brevity,
and1 force in our own. Anslo-Saxon ? Is
there any sense in saying1 that a man
has $1,000 per annum when we mean
91,000 a year? Why should we say that
the people of the United Stales drink"
on an average every 'year so many gal
lons of distilled spirits per capita when
we mean so many gallons each, or, we
may say, a head we may add that the
words per capita are a solecism, mean
ing by heads. If we are to use Latin in
the premises, we should consult cor
rectness and say per caput.
What earthly . reason for calling a
popular hymn and tune book "Laudes
Domini?" It sometimes happens that
there are ideas conveyed by a foreign
word which hardly have an equivalent
in English. In these cases it is perhaps
permissible to borrow the foreign word
or phrase. For example, we possibly
have no single word which is the equiva
lent of the French persiflage. That,
however, has been adopted into our
dictionaries and may be considered an
English word of French parentage.
But does mauvis honte express any
thing not conveyed by false shame?
And is sang froid anything more than
cool blood? "
The use of foreign words and sen
tences is peculiarly inappropriate in
inscriptions which'are to be read by the
plain people. When the friends of the
departed Dr. Goldsmith appended their
signatures to a round robin begging
that the epitaph upon the poet might
be in English, and when the czar of
literature, with wonted absolutism,
said : "An English inscription would be
a disgrace to Westminster abbey," he
was wrong, as positive people are very
apt to be. Of the millions who have read
with delight "The Traveler," and the
'Deserted Village," and "The Vicar of
Wakefield," how small a fraction of one
per cent, are those who know aught of
any language but English? "
When the fathers and mothers, the
sisters and sons of the men who died
in the war for liberty and union read,
with dimmed eyes, upon the monument
erected by grateful countrymen the
story of the virtues and sufferings of
their heroes, it is hard that they should
be confronted by a Latin sentence which
reminds them of their ignorance of
classic tongues. It is possibly well
enough to have a Latin or Greek in
scription in Memorial hall of Harvard
university, for those who read it can
look as tf they understood it, but what
reason for putting over the memorial
of Col. Shaw and his black soldiers the
Latin motto of the Cincinnati, which
mocks his surviving comrades and sons
of those who fell at Fort Wagner with
their enforced illiteracy? As if to add
to the-, infelicity, of the situation.
scholars tell us that the inscription is
not even good Latin. " Reliquerunt
omnia conservare rempublicam" should
be 'ut conservarent rempublicam." The
neighboring monument on the common.
ere6ted by the state of Massachusetts
to the heroes of the war, bears, fittingly.

FOLDING FURNITURE. :
IPnrnlafalnsra of a Rrdroom That May
. Be Packed In a Box,
The old sayinsr about living in a band
box may come to be a reality befort an
other decade, for now the complete
furnishings of a sleeping- or sitting-
room, may be packed m a box six leet
long by two and one-half wide and a
little more than, two fpet in depth. A
clever Englishman is the creator of
this folding furniture. With it persons
traveling will not be obliged to lament
the absence of their own beds and bed
ding, but may carry such, things with
them as personal baggage.
One of these boxes contains a wasn-
stand with tiled back and shelves un
derneath, a dressing bureau with a
swinging mirror, a oane-seated chair
and one rug upholstered cbnir, together
with bed, 'bedding, draperies, a toilet
set, and a wardrobe of comfortable
size. This furniture is made of well
seasoned hard wood. Each part fits
into its place and fastens without the
aid of nails or screws. In the dressing
bureau drawers, for example, the bot
tom is drawn out and the sides fold to
gether. What a boon this furniture
will be for frequent movers who are
never satisfied with one place for any
length of time, while the camper out
may carry his home with him.
The amount of sulphurous acid in
