poetry translation. We suspect him, as we have sometimes suspected others, of attempting his luck in Spanish on the ground of a knowledge of Latin-no doubt a good foundation, but needing some work on top. Readers may remember the story of the Englishman who had a few hours' wait at an Italian junction and decided to have a look at the town. To a porter, who attempted to follow him with the luggage wherever he went, he said: "Requiescat in pace. Resurgam." So much for too great reliance on a knowledge of Latin.
"Seacoal" might have gained first place but for failure to find the right subject of levanta; he says the cry that wells up in patriotic souls; in Spanish this would have been el grito que se levanta; the subject is la comprobacion. Many competitors joined Seacoal" in this errorGerona, Borderer,' H. S. W.,"" A. F. D.,"" Esther," "G. M. A.," and everyone in Class II except A. J. O.," and "Chardonne."
J. E. M." did not fall into this rather tricky snare, but she slipped down over nos hacían el análisis y nos acusaban las faltas, thus: who made for us the analysis of ourselves, and consuelo y animo, counsel a very little more care would have put " J. E. M." at the top.
"Gerona " writes very good English, but he slightly lost the meaning in yet from abroad came also-the phrase was correct without yet; and el desaliento inicial is not the innate weakness.
"Blackheath" missed the point in tambien del extranjero, at the same time . . ., and in vacios, vanity. We noticed a rather curious point in his translation: our actual conduct for la conducta presente. It is very natural to use the Spanish word actual for present, but we thought it unusual in English; but here we have "Blackheath" reversing our ideas, and his opinion has weight with us. This must be looked into.
"Borderer missed the point in tambien del extranjero; he omits tambien altogether. And como son is not how they are, but what they are; this is the difference between ser and estar.
"H. S. W." introduces another mistake: hispanofobia becomes fear of Spain; in this he is joined by "Esther," "A. J. O.," Yendu," and "M. E. G.," while "Bodley" calls it Spanish sensitiveness. We were amused at "Als Ob's" home-grown Hispanophobia.
We were sorry to see Chardonne" take a lower position than his good English deserves, but he lost the way over scepticism as regards the past, and thought it meant absolute disappearance of individuality, and we did not like several renderings, for instance tambien, all the same, and desaliento inicial, awakening terror.
Esse quam videri" always produces a fluent English passage, but in this case it is not quite true to the original; qué pueden hacer is not what they may become, nor is excep ticismo, exceptionalism, and this reader has overlooked the fact that the passage refers to the history of Spain, and should not all be put in the present tense.
We thank "Esse quam videri " for her letter and for her kind thought in always trying to submit her work in typescript. We are glad she likes our choice of poems even though she deplores their frequency!
From last month we held over a letter from "H. S. W." With regard to the merits of nom de guerre and nom de plume he queries: "Is the latter ever admissible?" and asks us for a pronouncement." We avoid pronouncements because, whenever we have ventured on one, someContinued on page 826)

thing was sure to crop up and upset our own theories. Still, we have an opinion on this question of pseudonyms, and can best express it by quoting from two first-class dictionaries, thus:
"Nom de plume, lit. pen-name, a name assumed by a writer. De Quincey, Trevelyan, and others."-Oxford English Dictionary.
Therefore nom de plume is accepted in English.
"Nom de guerre. Nom que chaque soldat prenait autrefois en s'enrôlant, et fig. sobriquet donné par plaisanterie."-Littré et Beaujean.
Hence, nom de guerre is right when we intend to use the French expression, and either can be used in English.
We were amused at Mr. Knight's letter. He (" Hippeus") calls his prize "a pleasant shock." The right spirit is to be confident in one's power to win.
A Prize of Two Guineas is offered for the best Translation into English of the following passage from "Die Kopierpresse," by Fritz Müller-Partenkirchen:
Ich kannte einen namens Kagel, der war im Holzhandel tätig. Als Junge nahm er mich an Sonntagen mit und erzählte mir von Holz. Das sei der edelste der Stoffe, sagte er. Es wachse wie ein Mensch, es weine wie ein Mensch, es sei unsterblich. So reich und tief sei keine Wissenschaft wie die vom Holze. Zehn Jahre müsse einer lernen, bis er seine Wunder auch nur oberfläclich kenne. Holzbegeistert kam ich heim. 'Vater," sagte ich, “ich habe mich entschieden, ich werde nur ins Holzfach gehen!"-" Aha, der Kagel," sagte der Vater. Weiter nichts. Das weitere sagte ein Jahr später der Herr Kagel selbst, als er uns mittels Druckrundschreibens mitteilte, er habe ein Gürtelgeschäft eröffnet und ersuche bei Bedarf.
