Mr. Fiske in a foot-note adds that the word has remained in local use in some parts of Massachusetts and Connecticut all along, and in Illinois in 1840 a certain Democratic candidate for county commissioner was called the great Mugwump.

“ The danger of using the telephone in communicating unfamiliar words is seen in the case of a clergyman friend of mine who yielded to the lure of the press and gave his sermon topic in advance as Babylon the Great.' This refined gentleman was reported as planning to preach on * Baby on the Grate."",

(The ancient Greeks were without the telephone, but it will be recalled that Dean Swift made them responsible for a somewhat similar verbal mixup. Seeking to show the derivation of English from Greek, he said that a famous Greek ruler was very fond of roast eggs, so that innkeepers in Athens would call out when they saw him, “ All eggs under the grate.” This, says Swift, became corrupted to “ Alexander the Great.”)

The Royal Road

to Knowledge

Periods of unsettled conditions, changes and readjustments such as we are now going through are not new to the world.

The Charts of Civilization show that in the past such periods have always preceded good times, growth and prosperity.

As interpreted from these charts, the greatest era of prosperity the world has ever seen is just ahead,

What Are These Charts?

No Matter What Your Life Work You'll find these charts of real value. Business men, bankers, doctors, lawyers, educators, architects and builders, engineers, artists, sculptors, authors,

amatists, chemists, physicists, sociologists, students, in fact, men and women in every

field of human endeavor are increasing their earning power through the knowledge embodied in these charts.

Mothers find them invaluable for guiding their children's education.

Teachers and college professors use them every day, increasing their ability to instruct and enhancing their own prestige.

Students in colleges and high schools save time and effort by utilizing the Charts of Civilization.

Elbridge Gerry, a subscriber reminds us, did not sign the Constitution of the United States. In a picture published in The Outlook of October 6, showing part of a pageant celebrating the signing, he was represented as so doing. Either the pageant-maker or the photographer seems to have made a mistake in this matter, for the authorities agree that Gerry refused to affix his signature. Curiously cnough, one of liis objections to the Constitution was that “ treaties of the highest importance may be formed by the Presiilent, with the advice of two-thirds of a quorum of the Senate.” This apparently seemed to the Massachusetts statesman to savor of autocracy. Was he, in this, a prophet unhonored in his time?
