In n letter to tho editor of tho London
Chroiiiolo O. Bernard Him w writes:
I should havo thought, now that wo
hrtvouu academy of lot tors, that it might
rnseuo us from tho gcutlcmen.who occa
nionally write to you to ezptniu how
Knglish should bo written. Somo timo
ago you let loose nu unhappy creature
to whom como competent person hud
incautiously poiutod out n common
blunder in the urn of "nnd which."
Not understanding tho matter, ho began
nccusing overy writer in whosa works
ho could discover "nnd which M of
writing bad English. With your per
mission, I havo extinguished him, and
ho has not siuco been heard of. Thero
was somo cxciiso for that poor wretch,
because tlioro unqucstionablaia n wrong
way of using "nnd which," but for tho
"split iufinitivo" pest thero is no excusu
nt nil. Thero is nothing whatever to
mislead him except his own nature. If
any man wcro to object to a split indic
ative such its "I greatly regret," or
n split suhjuuetivo such ns "I should
greatly prefer," or n split imperative
such as "come slowly up," what news
paper would wustt) an inch of space on
his foolish ignornnco?'Aud yet thiH split
iufinitivo uousuubo is taken qnito seri
ously by editors who nro nulllcicutly
good writers to ropeutodly uso it thorn
Tho iufinitivo is n mood in which tho
position of tho adverb cannot possibly
produce ambiguity; consequently tho
order of tho words ia not a matter of
grummnr, but of stylo, of which thu oar
is tho only arbiter. Tho car often do
mauds tho split iuiluitivo nud will havo
it in spite of nil tho silly people who do
not know what stylo means.
When theso iufiuito insects nro dis
posed of, yon will no doubt bo nttacked
in duo courfo by tho oven moru impu
dent impostors who, though they pro
uounco tho word "color" so us to rhyme
with "dullor," nnd never hear it nnd
nover havo heard it nud never will hoar
it pronounced iu any other way, from
timo to timo pretend to bo shocked
when it iB spelt without n "u." I trust
you will nlways insist on these nui
sances definitely stating whether they
prouoimco it or "honor" or "neighbor"
or "favor" or "bchuvior" so ns to
rhymo with "onr" or "poor," us tho
cako may bo, or whether thoy aro morely

In either case you will bo justified in

Away back in tho seventies, during
tho famous deadlock fight en tho civil
rights bill, tho question of tho adjourn
ment of congress was under discussion
ono Saturday afternoon. Ben Butler,
that born wit, had stepped over to Sara
Randall's desk for n privato consulta
tion. Bntler favorod a Sunday session,
whilu Randall opposed it vigorously.
"Bad as I um, 1 havo some respect
for God's day," said tho famous high
tariff champion, "aud I don't think it
right to hold n session ou tho Sabbath."
"Oh, pshaw!" responded Butler.
"Doesn't tho Biblo say that it is lawful
to pull your ox cr ass-out of tho pit ou
tho Subbath day? You havo 73 abscs on
your hido of this house that I want to
got out of this ditch tomorrow, aud I
think I nm engaged in a holy 'work. "
"Don't do it, Butler," pleaded Ran
dull. "I havo some respect for you that
1 don't want to loso. I expect somo day
to meet you iu u better world."
"But you'll bo thero, as yon nro

"Dooms to rent for light housekeep

Wo rro prouo to look upon those
humhlo housekeepers ns beings without

upon tho terra flrma of society is so

yon may catch a ruy from tho smilo

Mnrrlr.sm In Southern India.
Tho inhabitants of southern India

Thero nro nlways two marriage cere
monies, ho sayc, one taking place when
tho betrothed ones nro mero infants
nnd tho other when the bridegroom
takes his wife to his own homo. At tho
infant murriago ritos two brothers of
tho boy plnco him on uu elephant nnd
tako him around to givo him n glimpso
of tho city whom ho uud his bride nro
to live, nud nt tho tT.mo time tho girl's
mother is doing her sharo by siugiug to
tho littlo ono a mnrrijgo song.
At tho filial marriugo tho mother-in-law
lends the young husband by tho
liooo into a room, where his friends uud
relatives cro uwalting him, uud, amid
tho loud nolso of tamtams, tlio shrill
whistle of pipes aud tho roaring of

Sho gives tho men present nn opportu

man but her husband may look at her

time, her husband must commit sui

Three heifers and a bull mado up tho

"they were black, Wade and whito und

sent to Capo Ann, and in 1609 thirty
more. In 1030 about 100 were itnoorted
"for the exclusive use of the colony of
Massachusetts bay." During tho bamo
year 103 were sent from Llollaud to
New York, so that by the yoar 1030
thcri wero a good many hon.l of

Tho Church of St. Mary Woolnoth,
which stands out conspicuously at the
King William street coiner of Lombard
street, London, was closed ten mouthi
ago, nnd it is clear from tho statemont
of the rector that tho step was not
premature. It has been his unhappy
lot to bo of ton Rtartled in the courso ol
his services by a loud yot muiHcd
sound, evidently issuing- from the
vaults under tho church. As these
vaults aro now "hermotlcally scaled,"
the phenomenon may well havo ox
cited the imaginations of timid mem
bers of tho congregation. Mr. Ilroohe,
Aowever, rocoguized tlio noises only
too well. They wero causod by tho
falling of leaden coffins, sometimes
from the height of ten or twclvo feet,
in consequence of the mouldering
away of the coffins of oalt and elm ou
which they had been piled. It would
be well i tho evils of this relic of tho
barbarous system of intramural inter
ment had ended heiv. Unfortunitely
thi process of "hermetically sealing,"
according to Mr. Brooke's uvidenco
before, the consistory court of St.
Paul's Cathedral, has been anvthin?
but "hormeticul." Mr. Brooke de
