"WiiiD "Wbsteun Lingo" is what
one of the Eastern papers calls most
of the common errors in newspaper
English. But it is in an Eastern

Thr New York Tribune quotes Eu
gtme Hale's old schoolmaster, down
in iSraine, :is saying that some of the
farmers' boys who wore better clothes
than Eugene, used to laugh at him.
Some of those same boys are now
oking out an existence on fifty acres
of clay and sw:imp land, while Eu
gene Hale is a United States Senator
drawing 5,000 a year salary, and the
husband of a lady whose estate will
soon be valued at a million and a half
of money. The mora of which would
appear to be that if boys want to
grow up and make their fortune by
-marrying rich wives, .ithoy should
wear poor clothes and get the other
lyys to laugh at them.
Tun question as to the origin of
the cyclone has assummed a practical
phase in Missouri, one of whose citi
zens litis sued a fire insurance com

struction of his house, for the reason
that cyclones are produced by elec
tricity and not by wind; that electric
ity, is the same as lightning, and
his policy insured his house against
destruction by lightning.

George Alfred Townsend made
Ochiltree the butt of ridicule in one
of his "Gath" letters, and spoke of
