Yours truly, COMPANY. le "B"-Double Doors. THE OKICTiY OF BOODLE. ITS  ANCESTOR   CAME   OVER   WITH THE  DUTCH  OF   NEW  YORK. IU G�u  is tlit.� same as our boodle. It iidiU that, although tho two words uto probably onmiml 1 hobtune/'boodlo" may bo a corruption of tho word caboodle, This, however, ia not a tcimblo hyj>ot hc-j*, as cuboodlo is itf-clf a corruption mi^iu^ from the old New Kngluud >l:iii^ phrase, '"Lit and boolle," M^ijifyJn^ tin* wliilo Jot This was tho original form, and tho tmu&furmuUun into '"kit and caboniliu11 naturally grew out of a niad desire for alliteration in bound. HOW UULMliS USUI) IT. Tho Seventeenth century uau of tho word buddlo is iMustrutod in Murk hum's "Uoolc of Honour: ""Men curiously and carefully cho-hu out from all tho 'huddle' and maxso of grout ones for their approved, wisedomo." The meaning hero is tho whole. Oliver Wendell Holmes, in the "Autocrat,11 has tho following: "Ho would like to have the whole .boodlo of them (I remoustratod against thU word, but VUe professor said it was a diabol-tsh good word), with their wives und children, ithIpwrecked oa a remold Wand." Hero "again tho word ilgniflca the whole Jot, Although it in a "vile word," as I'oloniUs would say, it Is still a "diabolisu good word." It is � not tt nice word, but wben tho "Autocrat" was written, some thirty-five years ago, was �till In good Btandiug. Among eriumiaht tho word seems to have been first used by couuU-rfeiU.*rs to bigulfy the BpurioUB coin. Tho "Dictionary of Slang, Jargon and Cunt," published In Loudon, 1880, says tho word is used in the Unitad Status among thieves to denoto only counterfeit coins or bills. Technically it is never used to denote genuiuu money used for uefa-rious purposes, Tho "boodler" a ho who cwrios tho counterfeit or "queer" money, while the "shover" is ho who pauses it off. "At the first sign of trouble tho boodlo carrier vanishes, leaving nothing to criminate hJs companion rogue." Among confidence intm of the species called in some places "Mag's men," tho word is used to denote a roll ot paper skillfully rolled lu and covered by a greenback or bank note. The roll is used in their confidence games. Among gamblers "boodle" Is sometimes used to (h'^-noo the pile of coins gathered in by the winner of the game. H seems pretty certain that the word iias been und Is thus used among criuilimb i:lt these technical muauiugs. lu iisevti m .ito "boodle" is dutlned as "money fruit ;u iMiriy obtained in public bervico, cspormlly money given to or received by olUclala in britiery or gained by collusive contracts, apjJuiiitMii'nts. �ta, by extension, gained from cheating oi tmykfnd," And ugaiu: "booty, profit, per-quisle, plunder, commonly used with tvgurd to government contracts, etc., by which the public ttje cheated." It Is also pretty well agreed that the word hi this uonsfi is of American origin. The ^Pictionary of Bluug, Jargon und Cant," bo-lore referred to, quut**: Two* Vauketi tkiodlo oucu, I swore. Uut It is WuUoy Jioodlft uow. Which sounds mi though written bj *u Anierlcuu exile in Cutuuitk Cut though It* JUrMrfrffP -wtela uw U allowed it tws W- I corno iioincsticatea in oilier k;:his. Uut whii'o tho word as wo have ft is thus identified with tho cant of criminate, it still remains to t;Uoiv how tho criminals got it. TUC DUTCH WORD. "Boodle" agrees in pronunciation with tho Dutch liocdel, signifying estate, possesion, inheritanco, household goods, stuff, from which, so The Century Dictionary says, it may have been takeu in tho Elizabethan period in the general senso of tho "wholo lot'' or wholo property. There is also a German word beutel, signifying a purse, which corresponds, by the way, with the word buddlo of tho same sense some Lira cm used in England. There is a Friesic word budel, denoting an estate, especially a bankrupt estate, and thero is also another Dutch word buldel, meaning a pocket. The old English bottel, signifying a bundle, is probably of tho same family. All theso are cognate words and are either different forms of the same word or are variations of a common root. It is not probable that the New York criminals, among whom � tho word "boodle11 is first found, got it from \ an EngH.sU source. Tho meaning of "huddle," I as used by Markham, or of "boodlo," as used | by the Autocrat, was not sufficiently fruitful of criminal suggestion to thieves and cotm-terfeiUTH, all hough etymologists would find liule difficulty in establi-htng a family relationship U'Lvveeu tho 'boodle" of Ilolmtvi mid the ''boodlo'' of city councihnon and other gentlemen of easy virtue. But thieves are not troubled with etymological niceties. They take what they find, words as well as boodle, and tho New York criminal probably found in tho Dutch boedel, which came to Now Amsterdam with tho Hollanders, a word which survived amid political und linguistic transformation, preserved its meaning, "stuff," and finally found its way into the criminal vocabulary and took on the technical moaning we have seen. From this, like a river lost underground, it ornerges when it Is wanted, considerably soiled, it is true, but still a most useful member of the family philological. An examination of the Dutch Influence In New York will probably strengthen this hypothesis of tho origin of "boodle" us wo uso It, The word "stoop" will be called to mind by many, "Blickey," signifying in Now York and New Jersey � tin pail; "hockey," denoting a vessel mad* from a gourd, a Dutch word used only in New York, while "boss," another significant word originating In New York city politics, is probably only another form of tho Dutch baas, signifying master or overseer. Thero are, however, English words which muy be the parent of this latter. Altogether it seems reasonable to believo that the Dutch boodle, wondering from its homely me* and put to the evil service of thieves and counterfoitei-s, has returned like the prodigal son to tho company of Its respectable brothers. The uso to which we have put the word is one to which it has boon fitted by 1U long experience among the criminal chiibes,-Ht.

THE WAITOMO CAVES. Oeserlpttou of a V1�U to Wonderful Mew Zealand Cavorus, I11 a report to the surveyor general of New Zealand Mr. Thomas Humphries gives an In-tonisMig dobcripttuu of a visit which be and tt wn.ti! party made lu Juno last to tho .Vul-11 .'.<-� j,ive*, Klug Country, In the North Island vt Mow 2#ealaud. The Waltomo river, a tributary of the Walpa, which pawee through of Auckland in a direct line, though it is about twentv mUtw furihor.bv r�U nnti mad. ine caves are about ten mnes rrom utoro-hiuiga railway station. The country around Is undulating. A quarter of a mile before the caves are reached tho Waitotno, of about twenty feet in width, is seen emerging from the tide of a hill, under which it lias meandered through limestono caverns of various sizes for about twenty chuins. A light canoe can be taken uloug the river through the caves to within a few chains of its egress, where further progress is barred by the roof coming down to the water. At the entrance to tho cavern the stream is 8 feot deep. The natives have never had the couruge to enter, Tho entrance to tho cave, 80 feot wide oud 20 feet high, is in tho face- of a cliff. It is beautifully arched, with numerous moss and lichen covered stalactites. In a canoo tho visitor is taken lu, DO fe*;t from the entrance, und landed on a hilt covered b^ncli. Bytheuid of candles-for o!l is now dark - he (hid* himself among ponderous .-;talaeiitu�, iito 0 feet thick, reaching from tho roof,-C feet high, to within 1 foot of the ground. Everywhere, all over thoesteusivt* mid intricate caverns, aro seen titalacli'-es and stalagmites r-f immense size, in vast numbers, with marvelous beauty of form ami color. At one place tho dark vault was studded w ith thousands of glowworms, giving tho vault tho appearance of a starlit sky. Facing down tho left bank of tho stream for 1-10 feet, over a largo deposit Kit by the Hoods, the party eroded it by means of a foot bridge. From tho entranco to tho bridge tho cavern averages 00 fret broad and from 120 to 30 feet high. After crossing tho bridge a sharp turn to tho right is made up a stoop iuclino for a distance of 70 feet to the foot of a 10 foot ladder, which leads to a narrow passage 4 feet wide and 15 feet high, tho entrance to the "grand caver.n." Here is the bottom of the "well," a narrow shaft running up to another series of caves over the lower ones, where it is again met with in the gallery above. The well is 4 feet across, perfectly true, as if made by human hands, und it* sides beautifully marked with horizontal streaks, formed of lamina tod limestone. In tho grand cavern Is an immense mound of material evldcutly fallen from the roof. Beyond the grand cavern the roof rises and forms two domes, one 60 feet high. High up, 40 feet, is the untratice to unother cavern. Beyond the dome is a Budden fall, the roof lowering so much that the visitor has to stoop. The length of the grand cavern, at the end of which the stream is agoiu met with, is liSO feet. It varies hi width from 16 to 40 feet, and from 20 to 60 feet in height. Up to this point the color is a dull brown and a light yellow; but in the upper galleries, u0 feet above, thero are alabaster and Parian-marble-Uke tceues of unsurpassed loveliness. Twenty foet above tho grand gallery U tho "organ gallery," so called from the appearance of tho great stalagmitlo mass 160 feet from its entruueo, rising tier upon tier, Hue the front of an organ with marble pipes. From the grand gallery the main gallery above is reached by a ?;5 foot ladder, and 00 feot ivloug it the "well" h reached. Heno it is U foot in diameter, with smooth tide.-* of hard limestone, and the sound of moving water below. This is 45 feet above where it was first nsn. Fifty foet along from the upper well ii n "fairy grotto," and through un archway 30 feet In length the "banquet chamber" is reached, whore tho surveyor und his friends found a hot dinner had boon provided by the natives who own the caves. At tho end of this chamber it tho White terrace, a stalagmitlo mass rising in a writs of terraces. From this the upper eutrance to the caves is reached, high lu a wooded cliff, 00 feet above und directly over the lower entrance, Mr, t Humphries dosciibes in glowing terms other' galleries and caves, but i.hla may sutllcu to sfcow that, nothw'thttanding tho destruction of tho Itotomahanu terraces, New Zealand has still pleuty of wonders.-Science. wise mau will neglect to prepare hit wed until the (Uy be wants to pluut or how, Neither will he low any but tho best and ti� purest wedt y"-~fUV-L WEIGHT HmSTRY HEGWEE, MONEY to LOANI On Property in all parts of the City or Oouuty.
