CALLS FOR NEW DICTIONARY
New York Newspaper C.ondemnv the
Present Ones as Cumbersome
Like many books called classics,
which we speak of reverently and
never look at, the dictionary of our
language seems to be falling into dis
use ; we seldom consult it. If a strange
word “swims into our ken” we regard
it as an impertinence or we use it as
a kind of game; we argue about it,
discuss it, and perhaps write to the
newspapers for a definition, but we
don’t consult the dictionary.
Perhaps the reason for our neglect
is that the unabridged dictionary is
too cumbersome and it gives too many
meanings, though thin papers cut the
ordinary bulk. Simple words therein
are found to be both noun and verb
(spelled alike), and sometimes they
have more than a dozen distinct mean
ings. This is disconcerting. There
may be room for a dictionary with the
obsolete and archaic words left out, a
true Twentieth-century dictionary that
he fool proof.—New York Herald.

CONCERNING THE NEW TOOTH
Seemed to Mary Louise a Possibility
That It Might Not Be White *
With the possible exception of her
debut in the world of elocution, when
she “spoke a piece” from the teach
er’s desk at “last-day exercises,” the
greatest single event in Mary Louise’s
life was the loss of her first tooth.-
She was seated at the side of her Aunt
Evelyn, pensively exploring, with an
inquisive little pink tongue, the gap
left by the missing incisor. Suddenly
she broke the silence:
“Aunt Ebhie, I wonder what color
my -new tooth will be when it comes
“Why, white, I suppose,” replied her
aunt, puzzled at the question, “Why?”
“Well, you know,” answered Mary
Louise with a sophisticated raising of
her eyebrows, “you know grandma
has a gold one!”
It is usually the girl who never had
a proposal who blasts of having jilted
a number of men.

NEVER KNEW FEAR
“Dad” Ross Typical Gun Fighter
of the Old West.
First Acquired Fame as Coach Guard
in 1867, and Added to It Later
by Routing Train Robbers.
Aaron Y. Ross, “Dad” Ross, “Hold
the-Fort” Aaron h ,x was variously
called, and he was familiarly known
throughout a large part of the West,
although he was born at Old Town,
Me., this old guard of stage-coach
days, who recently died in Ogden City,
Utah, in the home of his daughter, and
surrounded by all of his children.
Born in 1829, he fought Indians and
repulsed the attacks of robbers on his
bullion car, in true 1922 movie man
ner, only, in his case, it was the real
thing, as the old man who passed
away quietly at ninety-three lived and
moved and had- his being in some of
the roughest spots of a rough West.
An of the Wells-Fargo publi
cation contains a brief sketch of the
career of this old guard of the early
stage-coach and pioneer railroad days.
In 1856 he went in a sailing vessel
to California. Later in the same year
he was looking for gold in Sutter
creek, and he followed mining as an
occupation in California, Oregon and
Idaho until 1867, when he became
stage driver and guard for the Wells-
He was on his route between Fort
Benton and Sun river in 1867 when
25 Indians swooped down upon his
coach. Ross defended the treasure
and lives under his care with shotgun
and pistol. After a running battle of
several miles, the Indians withdrew
less five of their number, who were

Baker, with his gang, rode up to the

ing Water River route, and command
ed Ross to throw up his hands.
answered with cold lead and the out
law and his companions retired,
severely wounded. Aaron Ross also
had another encounter with a bandit,
this time accounting for Jack Davis.
In killing this well known highway
man, Ross saved the driver of his
coach. This was on an overland
stage route through Nevada.
In 1883 “Hold-tlie-Fort” Aaron left
San Francisco as guard of an express
car containing SBO,OOO in gold bullion.
At 7 o’clock in the morning at Mon
tello, Nev., the train was attacked by
a band of robbers who uncoupled the
other cars and ordered the engineer
to pull the express car up the track,
Ross busied himself fortifying the
doors of his car with boxes, trunks
and packages. Finally commanded by
Hayes, the leader of the gang, to sur
render. under threat of being burned
out of the car if he didn’t, he said
he’d s?'e the gang in *‘a hotter place”
than they .would make by burning the
car before he’d 9 surrender. At the
end of a five-hour battle the old guard
was still in possession of the car and
the treasure, although the former was
almost reduced to kindling wood by
the rain of bullets. One robber was
dead and three were wounded. The
gang retired, the train was connected
up and continued to Ogden. Tho four
remaining robbers were captured
south of Great Salt Lake and were
returned to Nevada and given sen
tences ranging from 20 to 40 years.
One thousand dollars in gold was
given to Ross, who also received a
$650 watch, specially made, and en
graved with his name and a brief rec
ord of his deed, the award in recogni
tion of his bravery being accompanied
by a letter of praise from the general
superintendent of the Wells-Fargo or
There had been a severe thunder
storm in the night, and old Mrs.
Cocker had, for a wonder, slept
through it., Usually she rose, lighted
her room, dressed herself and sat
down in a chair, whose legs were set
in glass tumblers.
Intead of being grateful that she
had not been aware of the storm, the
old lady was filled with wrath when
she heard of it the next morning.
