ODO pf oar contemporaries relates the
following story of aninoidentof a young
disputant, who unconsciously sought to
annihilate Captain Matthew F. Maury,
in an argument on a scion ti fie question:
When Captain Maury, the distin?
guished savant, was in England, just
after the war, he was dining one day
with a distinguished party. Daring
dinner the subject of "induction" came
np, and a young gentleman, fresh from
the university, plunged enthusiastically
into the discussion, taking issue with
Captain Maury and arguing several
points with considerable warmth. Cap?
tain Maury, who is as modest ns be is
learned, skillfully and kindly parried the
argumentative thrusts of his young
antagonist by suggesting, in a mild way,
his views on the subject, which the
young university man strove to demolish
with his own opinions, dogmatically de?
livered. Alter dinner tho young gentle?
man's uncle said to bim : "I say, Charley,
what au ass you made of yourself at
dinner, to nrgue about 'induction' with
Captain Maury." "Why, my dear
uncle," said the astonished university
mau, "you don't tell mc that that little
mau was the greut Maury!" "It is quite
true," said his uncle. Whereupon the
horrified youngster, with admirable
frankness, hastoned to apologize tc
Captain Maury for having made such "ii
beastly fool" of himself, tho Captait
receiving his protestations with a smile,
and tolling him that there was no barns
done, adding, "You aro very young, mj
dear young gentleman."
