The one which incline
The sad soul to ibe gay

Which dawns on our viow
Again and again:
"Important if true."
AVhen the weather man writes
Of a 'blizzard to come;
"When a prophet recites
A story so glum;
.AVihn panic and strife
Are declared overdue
How the phrase brightens 'life
"Important if true."
The men whom we trust
Are alleged to be knaves;
You hear them discussed
As monopoly's slaves.
Uiut amid each tirade
We take courage anew
As the sign is displayed

powders In the standing space be-

PHRASES I USE
'KICKING THE BUCKET" AND
'HOBSON'S CHOICE' ARE CEN-
THE CORRUPTED BUMPER
Covering Offenders With Tar and
Feathers Originated in Time of
Crusades "Dun" Was a Col ector
in Reign of Henry VII.
If there is any one thing that t.he
average man would be willing to wa-
ger was of American origin it would
be t he practice of dealing with offend-
ers by covering them with a coat of
tar and feathers.
This punishment was instituted
long before the I'nited states was
ever thought of and before this con-
tinent was ever discovered. In the
time of the crusades Richard Coeur
le Lion and I'hlllp Augustus two
of the crusading kings agreed upon
the penalties that should be inflicted
for infractions of discipline.
Among the punishments provided
by their code were that whoever kill-
ed another crusader was to be cast
alive into the sea or if no water
was 'lit hand should be burned alive;
that whoever wounded another should
have his hand cut off; that who-
ever stcruck another should be duck
ed three times into the sea and
whoever stole from another should
"have warm pitch 'poured over his
head which should then be 'powdered
with feathers and the offender
should afterward 'be left abandoned
on the first shore."
When we speak facetiously of
some one for whom we have no
reverence as having "kicked the
bucket" we employ a phrase that
would seem to be a piece of latter
day slang but as a matter of fact
it dates 'back to Old Kngland when
about the year 1725 one Holsover
hung himself to a beam while stand-
ing on the bottom of a bucket and
then kicked the bucket away. Al-
though at first used only in cases
of suicides it has been applied in
the course of years to any death
Then there is- the good expressive
phras( "skedaddle" meaning to de-
part hastily along the line of least
resistance. This expression first ap-
peared In tlie I'nited States after the
battle of Hull Hun when many sol-
diers "skei'vldleil' to the discomfit-
ure of their commanders and for
some time the word was supposed
to be an invention of the soldier
hoys. However an antiquarian has
recently found in an old version of
the (New Testament printed in Ire-
land years ago this phrase: "For
it Is written I will smite the shep-
herd and the sheep of the flock
shall lie squedad ol.'
