James Clark McReynolds, of Tennessee, who had been Attorney-General since the beginning of the Wilson Administration, was, on August 19, appointed Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court to succeed Justice Horace H. Lurton, also of Tennessee, who died at Atlantic City July 12. To succeed Mr. McReynolds as Attorney-General the President appointed Thomas Watt Gregory, of Texas, Assistant Attorney-General. Mr. Gregory had conducted some of the Government's most important cases, among them the investigation into the affairs of the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad.
The new Attorney-General was born in Crawfordsville, Miss., November 6, 1861, but he is a citizen of Texas, where he was admitted to the bar in 1885, and has long been prominent in public life. His vigorous prosecution of the anti-trust cases in Texas first brought Mr. Gregory national attention. At the beginning of the Wilson Administration Mr. Gregory was urged for appointment as Ambassador to Mexico, but the President secured his services for the Department of Justice, and when Mr. McReynolds resigned Mr. Gregory, his most prominent assistant, was promoted to Attorney-General. This was the first change in the Cabinet of President Wilson since its formation.
DEATH OF ADLAI E. STEVENSON.
Adlai E. Stevenson, who was Vice-President of the United States through the second Cleveland Administration and was a candidate for the same office on the Bryan ticket in 1900, died in a Chicago hospital on June 13, 1914. Born in Christian county, Kentucky, October 23, 1835, he was educated in Illinois, and practiced law there from 1858. He was elected a member of Congress in 1874 and in 1878. He served as First Assistant Postmaster-General during President Cleveland's first administration.
THE ANCIENT AND MODERN YEAR.
The Athenians began the year in June, the Macedonians in September, the Romans first in March and afterward in January, the Persians on August 11, the ancient Mexicans on February 23, the Mohammedans in July. The Chinese year, which begins early in February, is similar to the Mohammedan in having 12 months of 29 and 30 days alternately; but in every 19 years there are seven years which have 13 months. This is not quite correct, and the Chinese have therefore formed a cycle of 60 years, in which period 22 intercalary months occur.

Definite words are necessary for the expression of definite ideas, hence scientific terms have to be employed. A term has one definite meaning which does not change with time. The rush of affairs drafts words from their original meanings, as ships drag their anchors in a gale, but terms sheltered from common use hold to their moorings forever. The word let, for example, has drifted in 200 years from meaning hinder until now it means permit, but the term bisect has remained unaltered in significance for 20 centuries.
