PYLE NOTES. A REJOINDER TO "OBSERVER." TO THE EDITOR. SIR,-I take my pen in hand to commiserate with the versatile authors of the article re Pyle races on their great misfortune in having been excommunicated from polite and grammatical society by inserting that unlucky sentence which grated on Observer's" ears, and made him com- plain bitterly-so one could think by reading between the lines-that he had to breathe the same air as them. I can fancy him putting his thinking cap on his bead, a Tennyson pipe on the table beside him, and adjusting his spectacles (with a microscopical lens) to a nicety, so that he could detect the slightest trespass on the time- honoured rules of grammar. It is most touching to think of him there all alone, repeating over and over again the good old school tune which begins with I am, thou art, he is," and philosophically shaking his head when he finds out that, in rail- way parlance, certain persons have wilfully, and with malicious intent, struck out a new path for themselves. It is, indeed, most affecting. He sometimes, in a paroxysm of grief, gets up, and frantically rampaging about the room, tidying carpets and falling over chairs, yells out—" Shade of Shvespere that I should live to see the laws thou didst honour and embellish, even when thou were playing marbles, ruthlessly cast aside by a pack of countrified upstarts, who know as much about grammar as they do about the teachings of Confucius Having sat down and fanned him- self with the coal shovel, and mopped his face in the table cloth, also clothed himself in a sack of potatoes (minus the edibles) like an old-time Jew, the question crops up-how to make the sinners aware of the fact that one of the greatest philoso- phers of the age has (like Captain Cuttle) made a note of the great sin they have committed, and has decided to publicly announce the same with the aid also of a Johnson's dictionary and an elementary grammar, to logically refute it to the satisfaction of all. With Pyle Notes as a medium, he has done so and now, with a pensive air, you can see walking about the pretty, dirty streets of Pyle none other than—" Observer." Perhaps you expected the exiled gentleman to be in that position, but, alas, for wicked human nature nobody seems to notice Observer's" patriotic attempt to enlighten our darkened minds. I must now leave him to the tender mercies of the warm winter days we now enjoy, and crave his permis- sion to subscribe myself as his debtor,— FRANCIS BACON.
