n good many .as being too much of a drain

The Cherrier directory company have coui
meuoed the woik of compiling the now city
directory. McKsrs. Cherrier and tawi-, tho
genflinen now in the city, aro oxiierienced
men in thin bushier, nnd promlso to give us
a morn complete, handsomer and better dl
i ectory than we have yet had. The now Uiok
will contain at least 15,00(1 names, ami tho
magnltnileof tho task is easier imagined than
(Cardinal Maxzofami, the. Iliigulst who Is
wild to have known a hundred languages, do
dure that ho never forgot a word he had
onoe learned. This little instance brings to
mind tlio subject how to obtain a good vo
cabulary. Language to some fow (icoplo is a
gift, nnd it is to thoe win are not so gifted
whom wo refer. If we cannot find the
proper words to express our ideas how are
wo to go to work to learn a wordl We could
sit down and study Webster's unabridged but
still tho oonuection and association with other
words would not bo there. It has couin to a
-sad pass in this five America tliajt in order to
xpreuour feelings wo must usoMnoro or loss
fluug. Many jieoplo miy ''What could we do
svltJwut the word 'crunk P' Now before
Uiesv lind American people put this woul tq
it preeiit use wo were sat lulled with the
siord fuKsy, jiartlcular or disagreeable in lieu
theuKif. In Knglaud, where slung is an nu
linoun language, a ierson has no more idea
what )ou intend to expns when you say "J
should smile," than if you wero talking some
Hut to our subject. We know of no better
pluu of developing n good vocabulary than by
careful reading. Many young jieoplo too
many rend a liook just for the story, tho ex
citement. You nsk them how thoy liked the
book, nnd thuy s.iy "O, I think It was just
horrid, I wantwl hor to marry tho first fel
low." Thoy know nothing of the stylo of lan
guage that has been used, and frequently do
not know who tho author of tho lKok is Tho
troublo with umiiy studeuU is tho simple fact
that thoy do not know how to study, and
some ono has ventured to assort that a person
does not Kscs tho Kwor of absorption until
after thoy ai o twenty. In speaking of w ords,
w hy isn't It just as easy to s.iy "dllllcult" as
"haidf" Wolmva heard it said that it N
"hind" to learn lawn tennis. Wo didn't
know nny thing about tennis was hard except,
jM'rhaps, tho ground, tho net certainly is very
soft and pliable, nnd should a ball hit jou
you would scarcely know it. Whereas, it
may ho a "dllllcult" task to learn tennis.
No say ''A big collection ot littlo plonts."
Would not a "vast collection of smaller
plants" lie preferable f If wo would but study
our choice of language, making tho best of
what wo do know, many persons w ho pass as
stupid would make a better impression. Wo
do not mean to Bay that tho best writers
must uso classical words, mi coiifcmVi', the
finest expressions nro given to tho woild in
the simplest language. When a writer bo
comes labored in his language, put' ejnimjtlr,
"He witnessed tlio Swiss Maiden extract the
lacteal fluid from tho boviiies'1 it gives us tho
impression that ho milked cows all his life.
A certain friend attended college in one of
our eastern schools, where, tho students were
obliged to use n new word in conversation
with somo member of tho faculty each day.
Why could not this bo Instituted right in our
homo clirlol Try each day to add some use
ful word to our vocabulary, and In n mouth
notice tho result. Mingling with the moio
youthful visitors at the Cieto Chautauipia
during the past week and noticing the ex
tensive uso of slang nnd tho poverty ot col
loqulnl language has led to these remaiks.

the calf thought, perhaps, to get moro than

to interfere with tho imbibing process, and
bis peculiar actions attracted attention to
him. Whereupon it was discovered that tho
calf had iwallowed tho ropo, but failed to
muko a complete Job of it, as tho nooso was
hanging from ono corner of his month. Tho
nooso was laid hold of and a steady pull
brought tho ropo to light. Tho calf is suf

pleasure attending such a trip there comet
even now n better and more nttrnctlvn tlmo
to view tlio Hudson. 'TMtruoa moonlight

ly on Wednesday last I boarded tho now nnd
elegant steamer Allwny nnd liegnii a very
pleasant trip up the Hudson by dnyllglit.
The InkiU nf this lino carry n lino orchestra,
which during tho trip furnish delightful con
cert music, rendering new nud iiopulnr airs
and much of it being selections from the
latest operatic succes'e. Tho l Ido is n mng

reaching Albany at (I o'eloslt for Hiippor; din

On tho way up wo stop at arIoui
K)lnts, t. i West Point, Nowliui gh, Pough
kcesIo, Catsklll, Hudson and Ilhtiiebock, tho
latter licing tho homo of lovl P. Morton, the
ropubllran candllato for tho vice presidency.
Mr. Morton's beautiful summer icsldencois
to lw seen near tho river and affords n lovely
view of tho entire surroundings. Tho house
and grounds aro lieautifully located on an
eminence, with a largo lawn Inclining to
ward tho river's front. When told of his
nomination Mr. Morton was at homo and Just
previous to tho an ivnl of tho lioat had re
ceived many congratulations by telegraph,
not only fioni American honorables but frjm
onesnbrond na well, including tho messago
from the Plumed Knight.
Arriving ot Albany we ato a hearty supier
and began to seo what could lie Hceu nf New
York's festlvo capital. Tho stato houso Is
located in tho immediate, business vicinity
nnd Is an Imposing structure built on a hill,
tho highest portion of tho city. It was during
tho ovenlng, whilo standing near the hotel
wniting for n friend, that the llrst Llncolnlte
I had seen since leaving home, met my gaze,
and this was nono less than Mr. A. S. Ray
mond. Ho wnsaei-ompnnled by his brother,
Itev. Mr. Raymond of Albany. Mr, A. H.
sal's Saturday for Euroto. Can't say that I
am particularly infatuated with Albany. It
Is not by any means a slow town, but Its old
eastern ways and the staid customs of tho
ooplo remind mo much of Philadelphia.
There are two opera housed here, neither ono
being as nloo as the cosy Funke in Lincoln.
Next day about noon I left for Troy and spept
but a'fow hours there," ItTlsbutsovdii miles
distant nnd considerably smaller than Al
bany, but in general appttaraurcs, forllfeand
enterprise, I prefer it to tho capital city. The
streets are wider and liettcr paved, they have
excellent street railway facilities nnd a very
commodious railroad station. Tho stoamer
lines on the Hudson aro a great factor in the
transportation of goods to and from tho city.
Tho principal manufactures of Troy arethoso
of shirts, collars and cuffs; this in fact bcii'g
the largest market for this kind of goods in
America. Tho well known " K. & W.' col
lars and cuffs aro tnado here, also tho Crown
In and of shirts, cuffs nnd '-ollnrs. Aside from
these, numerous other similar and smaller ex
tabllshmciits of lesser popularity nre scatter
ed about Troy, and it is here also that tho
finest laundries of tho land nro located. The
Troy laundries aro known tho world over
and no other city has tho rcputntiuii-for such
excellent work. Tho headepmrters, for Jaun
dry machinery is also located iwtv.
IjitoJn the afternoon via tho Delaware fc
Hudson cunnl company's Saratoga limited, I
left Troy to pay a short visit to America's
foremost watering place nud summer resort.
It w us my llrst tlmo in Saratoga and from
tho time of my an ival until I reluctantly do
parted I had nothing but n pleasant time.
Tho city hns a very refined npiiearance, tho
structures aro generally grand nnd ImjiosiiiB,
tho principal buildings lieiug tho hotels.
These In huge numbers ndorn the piinclal
portion of tho city. Tho season which hns
just oened promises to lie the Inrgest ever
experienced by Santoglaus nnd ' nhvudy
Ithousnnds of plea&uto seekers nro on thu
I ground, although tho summer festivities will
not begin far a week yet. Saratoga dm lug
tho olf season (w inter time) has it population
of about l!l,000 nud nt the helghth of thu sea
son at least 40,000 visitor? from all part of the
worm are in tlio city. I lie spi lugs mo our
ing out their usual quantity of excellent mill
oral waters and thu liottllug establishments
aro busily engaged shipping orders to all
parts of tlio country.
Leaving Saratoga I returned to Troy via
rail and at night took tho steamer. City of
Troy, for Now York, arriving there next
morning. Tho rido from tho Springs to Ti oy
h n very inteiestingone. Tho lino winds
through u thickly settled and very pretty
country, affording a pleasant viow of nature's
own work, about which so much hns lieon
written. Tho tlmo between Troy and Sam
toga is just ono hour and thu train being
mado up of jmrlor and day coaches makes tho
trip not only comfortable but luxurious ami
interesting. Arrived in Now Yoi k Saturday
morning and today, Monday, flud myself
again in the City of Brotherly Love, where
after several days recreation w ill leave with
n party for Atlantic City tobathoacain in tho
. briny deep and upend n few days at tho re-

tho Wild West

a short time. He has a ploasaut and neatly
furnishod tent on the grounds, for uso while
at Krastiua boforo and after tho performau

fi lends. Ho crosses thu ferry every day and
is luxuriously quaitered at tho Hoffman
House in Now York. Jlr. Cody has had
much hard work in tho last few years and
says that after his season In Philadelphia,
which commences next month, he will take
tlmo to recuperate. He is looking as healthy
and hearty as ever but the work shows on
him. Co ly is n Jolly good fellow nnd e ery-
