We doubt that George Ade would accept this definition. The slang which Mr. Ade writes is the language of informality. Perhaps some would define it as the lan guage of democracy. It is an instinctive rebellion against Goold Brown and Shake speare and the tiresome poets whose lines seem to be especially beloved of the com mon school educators. It is the street opposed to the academy. In some cases it is the wild growth of an uncultivated mindand in other cases it shows a mind indulging in comfortable negligence.

The only time Mr. Ade need blush is when he hears some of the lyrics in one of his musical comedies. The subject of this sketch was born in Kentland, Indiana, February 9, 1866 and it is worth noting that his father was an English immigrant engaged in the banking business. George was graduated from Purdue University, Lafayette, Indiana, in1887. Immediately afterward 13
