Webster's Dictionary has been the constant authority in The Herald office for more than thirty years; indeed, it was the first book ever called in aid, and has remained to the present day where it was first installed as an authority that has never failed. Webster's International Dictionary has tho endorsement of representative authorities all over the country. It maintains itself over and above all dictionaries, and bids fair to do so for generations to come.—The Herald, Dubuque, November 0, 1805. Where there is a will there is usually a lawyer.

For the last flvo or six years nearly all women, whether old or young, have given a certain amount of time to different sports. Schoolgirls have been trained In every way that would best develop their figures and add health and strength to their lives, and their older sisters who are out of school life and busy with society affairs find time to give a few minutes every day to healthful exercise.

Fashionable women as well as club women have sought, out every art, science or amusement that would aid nature In increasing health, and by that means add beauty to tho face and form. During the summer months the maidens and women have many sports to amuse them and various ways of exercising. The last two summers golf has stood side by side with the bicycle among the outdoor pleasures of the fashionable set, and the • delights of tennis were known to a large number of girls. But during the winter time there have been few ways by which the women and girls could take exercise. The pleasure and excitement of ice skating has had a great hold on society women this winter, but then it is only to be ha^ for a few days at a time, and one never knows when it will end". So the fashionable world, or at least the fminin part of it, has taken to fencing, for the sterner sex of Chicago have used the swords for many a year. It is probably owing to them that their wives, sisters and sweethearts have taken to' the scientific sport of fencing. The writer having been invited to attend an exhibition saw some interesting bouta. The hall where the young society women received their instruction was high up in one of the sky scrapers, and the room was one mass of curiosities to a novice. The walls were hung with dozens of swords, some In sheaths, others without. Masks of every kind hung on the wall and shtelds that looked like jackets made out of mattresses, to fit all sizes of people, were hanging on pegs. Benches were along the wall, and pa the lessons had not commenced, one or two of the pupils were seated awaiting the arrival of the others. When these entered the yoom they would pass _.._„ feisiid wfifl % Children itt fialf 61 tlU§ y6flft§ w6—— .— *-- -»- !6f thg vlolfent 6*etdlfeiS, lttd H&d |«et braided find fanned ift 6 6Wt8 fenBt Btf till fia{) 0! the heck.

It is hard to keep one's balanc< without falling down at first. The font were very light, the point being cov ered with a button, so that there woulo be no danger of an accident, for thej are so sharp that they would otherwise pierce the body like a needle. The young women first took the posl tion of "attention," the feet at righi angles, the head erect, the right arm and foil extending downward to the right, so that the button is about four inches from the floor, the left hand hanging down naturally, the poise oi the body so that their profiles were to ward each other. This was tho posl tion of attention, after which they raised the arm and foil, extending them toward the adversary, the hand being opposite the eye. They then swung the foil around to the left side of the body until the foil was hel d horizontally across the hip, the right hand being reversed, nails downward, and the point of the foil pointing backward. When "on guard" the left arm fell backward behind the head to a curved position, the hand being slightly above the head, the right hand being brought down to the height of the chest on tho right side, about eight inches from the body, keeping tae elbow well In, the point of the sword being directed toward the opponent in line with his'eye. The limbs were bent by separating them at the knee without moving the feet and the weight of the body shifted entirely to the left leg, the right foot being advanced a short distance and let fall in a direct line from the left'heel toward the opponent, and this position was called guard. Then commenced the advance and retreat, which consisted of a series bi steps taken very rapidly, the right foot always moving first. In the retreat the left foot always moved' first, followed by the right.
