Railroad Klocfcadc Iludcil.
St. Paul, April S. The St Paul
and Sioux city branch of the Chi
cago and St. Paul railroad, was
opened at uoon to-day through to
Sioux city, having been blockaded
since February 3d, and this after
noon trains were able to run
clear through. Large amounts of
freights have accumulated.
Jackson, Mich., April S. A
desperado named Lynch, in the
penitentiary, knocked down the
keeper and with three fellow
prisoners attempted to escape.
He was shot three times, by the
ruard who discovered him, and
killed. The rest made little re
sistance. The lcad-LorK.
"Washington-, April S. Demo
crats and republicans alike de
clare that they don't intend to
abandon their position in the
senate. Two hundred and sixty
five nominations await action, and
five treaties. It is stated that
there is some probability that
the republicans will go into exe
cutive session to confirm the most
important nominations some time
next week, but should an attempt
be made to seleet certain men for
confirmation the democrats would
probably resist and insist upon
taking nominations in their proper
Jobn Brown' Widow.
New Yokk, April 8. The
widow of John Brown, of Harper's
Ferry fame, is in Washington seek
ing government position. A Bos
ton special to-day says that a sub
scription has been opened in her
behalf at Use office of ex-Senator
About twenty-five or thirty men
came down from Olympia yester
day en route to the Yakima river
rejrion to engage in driving log's
on that river to provide timber,
ties, etc., in aid of the construction
of the Northern Pacific railroad in
the direction of the sound. They
tvere engaged in this occupation
last year, and expected to renew
their contracts this season. Gen.
Sprague met them in this city and
sent them back, informing them
that the company will do no
driving on the Yakima this year.
Several indications point to the
fact that the present managers of
the Northern Pacific railroad are
not j-o confident of winning in
their present contest with so
powerful an antagonist as Villard.
A gentleman of intelligence from
Tenino informs us that the people
of his section have little hope of a
western terminus of the Northern
Pacific railroad at the sound, at
present at lejist. In its "Wall street
gossip, the New York "World of the
22d has the following to say on the
subject: "The Northern Pacific
project of issuing the remaining
$1S,000,00 has a verv strong
flavor of speculation about it. A
very large short interest has been
cultivated recently in these stocks
and the impression now is that it
was this unissued stock that was
being sold, and that this issue
comes in very handily to save
hose who had sold short. The
jstock went off when it became
generally known that this block
had been added to the stock, which
at its best will not be able to
represent a paying road for more
than a small part of the year."
Statistics recently submitted be
fore the commercial club of Boston
show that the value of the manu
factured products annually turned
out by Massachusetts is 6000,000,
000, 'against 100,000,000 of all
other productions of that state".
One among the many neatly printed
ami vory interesting pamphlet which
wc found upon our table for review
whun we returned to our sanctum
last Sunday, is a report of the fifth
annual meeting of the Washington
Territorial Teachers institute, con
vened in Seattle August 17th, 1SS0.
The first thing to attract the attention
is the elegance of the work, a fine
sample of the Art Preservative, from
the office of Sir. J. E. Clark, Olympia,
feecretary of tlie Institute. The
pamphlet contains one hundred pages,
literally cram full of sensible ideas,
valuable to tlie fraternity of teachers.
Wc regret tliat we have room for an
extract only from the address of Mr.
lv. C. Kerr, of Port Townsond, upon
the subject: Word Building:
One of the most magnificent edifices
on this continent is Girard's college,
in Philadelphia, built entirely of white
marble; its snowy walls, its massive
'columns, its marble stairway, its roof
of stone and glass, make it a perfect
' model of architectural beauty and use
fulness. Suppose now that the pro
fessors there, whenever they wanted
anything in the college, instead of
going in by the doorway, should pull
a block or two of marble out of the
wall, and go in that way and keep
doing this all thoir lives would you
not say that they acted foolishly?
Well this is just the way we get our
knowledge of the English language,
under the present system of instruc
tion. Webster and other lexicograph
ers have built a magnificent structure
out of the English language, and every
time wo want a new word, we tear the
whole side out of that grand building
just to sec how it is spelled and
The broad open gateway into this
palace is the knowledge of the radical
or root words; but we unwisely per
sist in trying to climb in some other
way. To give an illustration of our
subject, we will take some words in
common use; take the word heart
The ancients believed that the heart
was the seat of sense and reason; and
it may be for what wo know it acts
queerly sometimes. Well, thn Latin
name for heart is cor, or cordis. Ac
means to, con, together; dis, separate;
re, again. Hence
Ac 1 T'eldine the heart to; agreement.
oa I cord i BMrts together; unity, or UarmoBy.
Dig ( w" j hearts separate: disagreement.
Kc I Uoptitnpen the heart acam: to re-
, . member.
1 the heart or center.
Cor dial heartily, with the heart.
( date J heart shaped.
There are many other words from
the same root, as according, concord
ance, discordant, recorder, courageous,
etc, etc., but these are enough for
the illustration. After yon have
learned the root, you will always know
this word in its different drewes, wlier
evor you meet it. Have your pupils
learn wqrds in this manner; let them
define, or gie yiHi:yms for the
words, and wriu- s-eiiieiiee with these
words in them, and they will nm be
come very jroticieiit in the English
language. P.: jHrrhaj; ome uf the
pupils may think thetto words t hard
for them; then let us take up an easier
word.. Call up one of your pupils,
Johnny, you will have four or five
Johns in your school-room and toll
him to write his name upon the black
board. Then define it for him; toll
him that John means "the gracious
gift of God." Now let us see how
many words we can form out of this
word John. Find how it is spelled
and pronounced in the different lan
guage. En?litli John. Stmnish J nan.
Danish Jan A clc-li Evan, Owen
German ilans. French -Jean, Zuan.
Russian Ivan. Italian Giovaiia.
Mcin Scotch and ap in Welch is
equivalent to son in English. Yille is
from the French and means a town.
Kin means little.
John's son Johnson the son of John.
Johnstown where the Johns live.
Littlejolin a small man named John.
Johnny diminutive of John.
St. John a good or holv John.
Jack diminutive of John.
Jack's son Jackson son of Jack.
Jacksonville where the Johns'Iive.
John km, or Junkin a little John.
Jenkins a little John.
Junkinson, Jenkinson son of John.
McJunkin son of John.
Jon or Jones old way of saying John.
Jonesville where the Johns live.
Evanson John's son.
Evansville where the Johns live.
Ap Evans -Bevens son of John.
McOwenMcGowen John's son.
San Juan St. Johii.
There can be :ts many words formed
out of Hans, Jan, Ivan, Juan, etc
By this time the boy begins to think
there is no end to the words made out
of his little name. Now have we any
little girls named John They will
think not; but really we have some
little girls called John, only wc do not
pronounce it in that way. Jane, Jean,
Joanna, Jean, Joanne, Jennie, and
Joannotto, are all feminine forms for
John, and moan "the gracioiis gift of
God." We have mairy Johns among
the girls. There are many phrases in
the English language dorived from
John; such as, Jack in boots, Jack at
all trades, Jack-o'-Lantom, Jack in a
box, and many others.
Now, the other words of the Eng
lish language arc like these; many
words are untied from the same root.
Whenever the pupil has learned tins
root, or radical, he has learned all the
words built or formed out of this root.
These radicals arc the key that un
locks to us this magnificent structure
called the English language. As there
arc only about one thousand of these
radicals, and as it is much easier to
remember one thousand words than-it
is to recollect one hundred and four
teen thousand words, this must be the
easiest, the shortest and the best way
of learning the English language.
