The Origin or Humbug.
Edward Nathaniel Lewer, who was
all his life connected with the Lon
don Stock exchange, and died on
May 7, 187(5, aged eighty, once said
in all seriousness that during the
Napoleonic wars so much false news
or pontics and army movements
came through Hamburg that any
thing that smacked of the incredi
ble was received with the derisive
phrase, "That's Hamburg." whence
is derived by corruption the word
"humbug." If the woid does not
date back beyond the period referred
to, it seems a more reasonable deri'
vation than the very labored one we
get in Webster's Dictionary. Notefl
A remarkable instance of the ten
dency to change and even mutilate a
word in order to give it a familiar
and suggestive appearance is found in
the expression "jerked beef." which
is a ready English substitute for
"charqui," the Peruvian word for
meat cooked in smoke, or "jerked."
Such a liberty taken with a foreign
word may readily be pardoned when
so happy in result, but the necessity
for changing "lustrine," a French
word for silk, into "lutestring" may
be questioned, seeing we have many
words, such as "luster" and "lus-
trous," from the same root But
there is no accounting for fancies,

A Place for a Rigger Man.
Rev. Dr. Boyd tells a delightful
story against himself in his reminis
cences. It is of the senior wrangler,
who, when the parson told him of
his intention to leave Edinburs-h for
the highly desirable incumbency of
St. Andrew's, naively said: "Bless
me! are you going there? Why,
that's a place for one of the first men
in the church!"
