TALKED IN MUSICAL TERMS Policeman Shows Result of Long Duty at Door of Concert Hall. All amateurs are familiar with the musical term "s>Ticopation," but for the beneflt of the non-musical it mayt be said that it is a word relating to time or rh>'thm, the precise moaning of which will bo sufficiently Indicated by the story. A ctlebmted conductor was conducting a long series of concerts, and he had ohscned it was always the same policeman who was stationed at the near^t.dpor to the orchestra. Remarking upon this, he was informed that the oQlcer In question was becoming qnlto an expert in musical terms, etc., so long had" he been on duty insido the ball. However, one evening he was passing, and meeting biin accidentally in the corridor next night, the great conductor accosted him thus: "Officer," he said, "where were you last night?" Last night, director?" replied thei eop. "Oh, I was in sv-ncopation." In what?" gasped tho conductor. In sj-ncopatlon—off the beat, Bir,"1 replied the policeman.

The value of the Colonial shilling was gradually reduced from the Eng- lleh standard as tho result of per- sittont coin slipping. As early as 1642 Moasachusetts raised the rating of the Spanish dolfar to !)S and Connecticut took similar action tho following year. In 1CI5 Virginia raised the nitlng of tho dollar to 6s. In 1C52 Massachusetts established mint and began to coin Bhllllngs that were 22t4 per cent, higher than tho sterling standard. In 1683 the Spanish dollar, weighing approximately 17 pennyweights, was rated at Cs 9d, while Pennsylvania valued It 7s. The consequence of these variations In the colonies was that la 707 parliament passed an act pro- '\idiag that the Spanish piece of reals (dollar) should -not be valued at more than Gs, but Bullock tells us his "Monetary History of tho United States" that this law was almost universally Ignored. Finally New York and North Carolina settled upon a rating of 8s to the< dollar, and this valuation was gradually accepted and retained until our national monetary system was established. at Simple Spelling Move. A conference between represent!^ tlves of British and American societies to extend the movement for a simplification of English spelling has Just been held at University college In England, with a large number of profes'' sors connected with English nnlversl- tles, and the following from America: Dr. James E.
