HOW TO SAY THEM. Taking pity on Its readers, the London Dally News generously throws a little light upon the dl^cult question of the pronuncia tion of those curious groups of consonants which the Poles persist in regarding as mat ter-of-fact place names. The following list ot instructions, If carefully followed, will, we are assured, enable the reader to pronounce the names from the eastern theatre of war with all tho ease and vigor of a native: 'The Polish campaign suiters under the dis advantage ot abounding in names of places which cannot easily be pronounced and re membered. This disadvantage Is not reme died by the fact that in the bulletins trans mitted from Russia the Polish way of spell ing is very often discarded In favor of the Russian, which, boing based on an alphabet different from the Polish, proceeds on purely phonetic principles. For Instance, the Polish ?Kallsz' becomes the Russian 'Kalish,' and the Polish 'Szczerkow' becomes the Russian 'Shtcherkov.' Thus the reade...
