that a long cublegram was recently
sent from 1ondon concerning the ori-

cablegram the secret Is out and It l

should not be held responsible for the
vernacnhir of their brethren in tho
Western continent the word jazz he
admits. Is now as much n household
word In England ns In America. And
then be goes on to say that the word

groes. Now In the ioufh he tells ns.

ers Some unkind employers call It
"loafer-! tls." The white employer ac-
cording to the erudite Englishman In
the South has many thousands of ne-

quently many overseers. So not being
nhln to remember the mimes of nil his
foremen he generally names each man

lishman. Is a term of the highest es-
teem. Through the very human love
of abbreviation Jasper became "Jas"
