ON ITS WAY TO SCRAP HEAP
Dialect Known u "Pennaylvanli
Dutch" Bids Fair Soon to Be a
Thing of the Past.
"Pennsylvania Dutch," that curloui
combination of German, English anc
Yankee, which since Revolutlonarj
times has developed In parts of Penn
sylvania and Ohio, Is going Into the
discard. For more than a century II
has been growing just as language!
always grow, with use. It has cor
rupted words, made words, created
forms, one mlRlit sny a grammar ol
Its own. It has not, It Is true, pro
duced a literature. But It has been th
speech of a considerable number ol
persons in their homes. It long since
ceased to be recognizable as German,
and English It never was. In It, stu
dents tell us, are mingled German,
English, Welsh, French and even Gae
"Pennsylvania Dutch" has been 'the
dialect of those German disciples of
Peter Menno who came to America,
some of them In pre-Revolutlon days,
seeking religious liberty and political
freedom. Some of these went Into
Ohio during Revolution days, others In
to Canada, some as late as Civil war
uted to Isolation. And they were large
ly an agricultural people.
Now the word has gone forth among
the Mennonltes that It Is no longer
patriotic to speak "Pennsylvania
Dutch," and as fast and as thoroughly
as possible these unbelievers In war are
discarding the speech of childhood and
home associations. The task Is not an
Impossible one to them, since all or
nearly all of them have had some ex
perience in the common schools. From
among them 8,000 young men have
gone overseas to flght the oppressors
of their ancestors and the barbarians
who threaten their own liberties.
The banning of "Pennsylvania
Dutch" Is an Impressive object lesson
to all Americans. Let's all resolve to
speak English. Detroit Free Press.
Russia Is printing from 600,000 to

take and prints "kopecks" for rubles,
It doesn't matter very much.

home, although he himself had died
from the effects of a wound received
In an encounter with an enemy ma

about to die, he propped himself up
In such a way that the rudder bar and
control lever were kept in position,
carefully calculated the distance back
to camp and arranged the machine so
that It would volplane safely to the
ground after his soul had departed.
His plans were successful, and when
his horrified companions hastened to
him they found In his pocket a note
book In which wnsthe information he
hod been sent to obtain "at all costs."

DR. A. L. HOWARTH
Dr. A. L. Howarth is the asso
ciate executive secretary of the
$105,000,000 Methodist Centen
ary movement for rebuilding the
world, with headquarters at
Portland, Or. Dr. Howarth is
one of the most brilliant preach
ers in the northwest and during
the Centenary campaign his ev
ery Sunday has been occupied
with demands for addresses. As
executive secretary, he super
vises the business details of the
vast Centenary plans in the
Portland area, which consists of
the state of Washington, a large
part of the state of Oregon and
calls for living Christianity and doing
Christian things, rather than preach
ing Methodism. Great community

will be healthy amusements and
where the church buildings will be

churches in the country $11,000,000

make the country church a real factor,
building cross roads churches, making
allowances so that the rural church
can get the best of pastors and pay
them a salary that will Interest them;
educational work in the cities; help
pastors to get a living wage.
Twenty-five million dollars will be
expended in the next five years at the
rate of $5,000,000 on direct war recon
struction work equally divjded be
tween Eurqpe and this tountry. Close
on $3,000,000 has already been spent
by the sending to Europe of the first
Methodist mission ship. Perhaps
there were Bibles on board, but there
were a great many more plows and
tractors. That great ship was loaded
to the gunwales with everything that
could help a people to rebuild.
