BRUDDER GARDNER ON

BIG WORDS."

COMEDY NEGRO-DIALECT ADDRESS.

M. QUAD.

IT
T am once ag'in my painful dooty to speak to de members in

regard to de use of big words. It was only last night as I walked home from prayer-meetin' along wid Waydown Bebee dat he keerlessly obsarved dat de eliminashun of de elucidashun appeared to coerce de cohesion of de gratificashun. What on airth he meant I can't say, but I know he felt proud ober his flow of language. A week ago I was in a feed-store when Samuel Shin come in arter fodder for his old mewl. He didn't dun see me, an' as he laid down thirty cents he remarked dat de problematical disqualificashun had werry much embarrassed de unexpected arsimilashun. De feed-store man didn't fall dead, but I don't know why he didn't. Two days since, when Samuel Shin was axed if he believed de whale swallered Joner, he puffed out his chest an' replied dat his perversity of de sinnosity led him to articulate to de pomposity. If yo' was to ax him what he meant, he couldn't tell yo', but he's feelin' werry proud of them big words.

I ain't gwine to waste no time ober dis subject. Mebbe de strangulashun of de reservashun exceeds de placidity of de impecuniosity, an' mebbe de gratificashun of de realizashun limits de verbosity of de paralysis. As to dis I can't say, but I do know, an' I gib de members of dis club fair warnin', dat if dar am any mo' concentrashun of de consequentiality around yere I shall purceed to eventuate de diagram of de monstrosity in a way to particulate de effervescence of de ardusity. We want nuffin but plain words, an' words dat we kin all understan', an' from dis time on we shall eventuate de glorosity of de English language or maintain a consanguinity of calamitous configurashun,
