Yankee Nomenclature.

We observe that some of our contemporaries are fling into the habit of calling the late fields of our story by Yankee names. Thus, they say "Fair Banks," instead of "Seven Pines," and "Fort Darling," instead of "Drury's Bluff," Now, we descate this habit. The Yankees have no right to names to our fields, and we hope none that give will be accepted. "Fort Darling," in- It is Yankee all over; fantastic, baseless, poted, and in most abominable taste.
