Freaks of Language.
A peculiar kind of blundering known
as "folk etymology" is responsible for
some of the queerest freaks of km-1
guage. Au easy example will make
this clear. Our American word "car
ryall" for a kind of vehicle is not a
cdmpouml of "carry" and "all," but a
slight distortion of the French "carri
ole," a diminutive car. The change
was made in obedience to the uni
versal tendency to assimilate the un
known to the known, to make words
u)ean something by associating them
vjltb others which they resemble in
sjpund. Often there is no etymological
relation between the words associated. also do some spring shopping.

words of Rose de Martial, whose story
has been sung by the poets of Ton-

belonged, and she was courted by the
lord of Castelnat, whose manor she
could see from her window. But. al
though she was beautiful and tender
