As a rule, my countrymen, while at

A startling incident, of which Mr.

"I was in a most dreadful condition.

trying 'Electric Bitters;' and to my
great joy and surprise, tho first bottle

her ltsband's house for just cause,

THE DAYS OF QUILL PENS.
! An Accomplished S tionlmriNter's Won-
derful Effect In Flourishes.
The art. of cutting a quill by adept
"quill-drivers" was dying when I first
began schooling, says Notes and Quer
ies. Steel pens had been known for
some time, but were not in general
use. The goose quill pen died a hard
death as a commonly-used writing
tool. My first schoolmaster was a
first-rate hand at cutting a quill, and
he could use it with wonderful effects
In flourishes. It was his boast that he
-v iiii lut nisi ijuutj et a iau a
0v,t i i -.u ,
school book with name, age, date and
flourlshes-in which u-fro .nttod
wonderful swans and other birds in
such a fashion that none but experts
like himself could tell where the quill
pen was taken from the paper for a
fresh dip. My last master could
neither cut a quill nor use one with ad
vantage. Quills as pens remained in
use in some houses as the only writ
ing tool up to a dozen or twenty years
ago. Those who can cut a decent
writing quill are now few. People
used to ask for "a quill pen," or "a
quill," when they wanted a pen, and
both steel and quill were always called
"pens," buyers asking for fine or other
"nibs" or nebs." Nowadays nearly all
ask for "nibs" when they require pens.
The word "pen" has almost dropped
out of usage, except to express the pen
and holder combined. Persons in
variably ask for a box of 'nibs," ap
pearing to lose sight cf the fact that
"nib" or "neb" is a point and that the
points of pens alone are not to be had.
One would think that in these days of
much schooling teacers would define
"pen" from "point" or "nib," but.
they, too, ask for "nibs" when they
mean "pens." Children only know a
pen as a holder and pen combined.
They ask for "nibs" or "pen nibs," and
asked if they do not mean "pens," the
reply is: "No, nibs!"
