Mantiwill-1Another item for which I’ve completely lost track of ye data. Almost surely from the Chicago Tribune, has kind of an 1890s vibe, what with the outhouses and all.


  1. What’s the deal with this expression “in no wise ” , as in she “is in no wise affected” by blah de blah.Were writers who used it dum-dums from simpler times , or is it some kind of high – toned language that a schlub like me can’t grasp? And if the latter , in what sense is “wise ” applicable?

    • I say that all the time. It’s a perfectly cromulent expression.
