writes : “I beg to call your attention to Jolin Fiske's The Beginnings of New England,' at page 230, where he says: • In Eliot's Bible the word which means a great chief—such as Joshua or Gideon or Joab—is Mugwump. 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.

“ Most of the examples of mispronunciation
you have published are taken from the speech of ignorant persons. At a recent meeting, however, a well-known bishop. and a noted banker agreed in mispronouncing the word consortium. Webster and the Century dictionaries both give kon-sor'shi-um.”
(The Standard Dictionary, however, pronounces the word kon-sor'ti-um, and ile eminent gentlemen named may, after all, have “looked it up.”)
“ 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.”)
“A quarto edition of a Connecticut county history states that

“ An advertisement in a daily paper asked for a second-hand osculating fan." “ In a mission school
class was reading, by verse, the parable of the ten talents. One little chap laboriously read, • I feared thee because thou art an oyster man.'
“ A Mexican friend who speaks excellent English said to me that something - happened in the winkling of an eye.' That isn't what we say,' I said to him, but it is a great deal better than what we do say.'”

Full Speed Ahead!
“The Royal Road
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?
A compact summary of the Life Story of the World in chart form. The set comprises six graphic charts 13x19 inches, printed in red and black on strong, high-grade paper and neatly bound in durable, heavy brown cover. On the back of each chart is a complete list of authoritative books covering the subject matter. What They Will Do for You
They enable you to discuss with authority the development of any phase of Science and Invention, Literature, Laws and Customs, Philosophy and Ethics, Drama, Architecture and Art, the important contributions made by each nation and their influence on modern life.
