He used to say that most fine given
names were ruined by abbreviations,
which was a sin and a shame) ' "I
myself, he said, "am one of six
brothers. We were all given good.,
old-fashioned Christian names, but
bit those names were shortened Into
mcanlnglesf or feeble monosyllables
by our friends, t shall name my
children so that It will be Impractic
able to curtail their names."
The Williams family. In the course
of time, was blessed with five child
ren, all boys. . The' oldest was named
nfter the father William. Of coarse,
that would be shortened to "Will" or
enfeebled to "Willie" but.wait! A
second son came' and was ehlstened
Willard. "Aha!" chuckled Mr. Will

speak the 'full name, of each of these
boys in order to distinguish them."
