REALLY NAMED FOR STATE
Mississippi River Steamers Originated
Cognomen That Has Now Be
On the Mississippi river In olden
days the passenger steamboats were
very ornate affairs, vying with each
other in garish glory. One owner hit
on the Idea If naming his steam
boat's cabinets instead of numbering
them. So ho named them in honor of
the states of the Union, each having
above tho door tho gilt title of somo
state, the big central cabin being
called tho "Texas," after the largest
state. Other boat ownera took up tho
idea, and thus the word cabin wa&
gradually alternated by "state" room.
For years the best cabin was still
known bb the Texas. Then that
sobriquet died with the ebbing glory
of tho old river steamers. But the
word "stateroom" became Incorporat
ed into our language, nnd In time even
broke into the dictionary, as does
many another catch phrase. Not one
person in a thousand who occupies a
stateroom know-B the term onco meant
"a room named for a state."
