is grammatical, and if editors do oocas
ionly take the liberty to coin words that
would shock Richard Grant White it is no
more than the best of scholars have done
and tne good service that the press is do
ing for the language far out balances tho
harm done. The local column of tho

chapel at Michigan in times which lie
says arc now happily past says: "Why, it is
not so very long since they who cared to
repeat the Lord's Prayer were obliged
to watch and sometimes to light, while
they piayed. A stray missle was liable at
any time to linil its way into their neigh
