From Generation to Geonration. With each new spring New born it wakes, when every forest thing Unfurling is and buds are blossoming. In tones we know It speaks, that voice of immemorial woe.. ' That leaves should come. again-that: we should go I' " Ere the Greek sung, In words melodious, from the heart blood wronr, It leaped to life in prehistoric tongue., Grey ages toess Its fainting echoes the far chasm across, Bridging their ancient to our present loss.

Henderson, who, though he thinks and speake highly of Volapuk as a work of ingenuity, is nevertheless ot opinion that it has been formed on an erroneous basis. b What, he asks, was the use of Herr Schleyer evolving. his new language out of those r already existeing, and yet so pruning and.re ducing the words as to make them unrecog f nleableboth at eight and in sound? It is not to be expected that the majority of people Swill eat to work to master a vocabulary so wholly distinct from any with which they are acquainted. The task is too heavy, the labour too great. What is wanted is a language moxereadily recognleed and acquired by the dominant races of the world. Now, look at the Continent. The French, the Spanish, the Portuguese, and the Itali...
