GREAT MEN OFTEN SMALL. "t
What They Lack In Stature They
Make Up in Intellect.
Don't be ashamed of being small
of stature. The finest brains are of
ten found in the heads of little men,
says the Baltimore American. Alex
ander, Napoleon, Uladislaus Cubital
is. the pigmy king of ,Poland; Char
acus, the wisest counsellor that was
about Saladin, the great conqueror
of the east; Marius Maximus, Mar
cus Tullius, and to drop down to this
" day and generation. Alexander H.
Stephens, Stephen A. Douglas, Jay
Gould, Samuel Spencer, Senator
Knox, Abe Gruber, Phil Sheridan
and a host of others all were small
men;_yet, as they say in the Bowery,
they got there.
Alypius of Alexandria, a most ex
cellent logician and philosopher, was
only one foot and five inches in
height. Augustus Caeasar exhibited
in his ,plays one Lucius, a young man
twenty-three inches high and weighed
seventeen pounds; yet he had a
strong tenor voice and could sing like
a nightingale. In the time of Theo
dosius there was a pigmy in Egypt so
small of body that he resembled a
partridge; yet he exercised all the
fuactions of a man and could sing
merrily. He lived to be 22. Julia,
niece of Emperor Auguetus, had a
dwarfish fellow of the name of Cano
pas, to whom she was much devoted.
He was twenty-eight inches high. An
dromeda, a free maid of Julia, was
of the same height.
Just about a hundred years ago, in
Wurtemburg, at the nuptials of the
dukeQ of Bavaria, a great pie was set
upon the table. On being opened out
stepped a dwarf, armed cap-a-pie,
- girt with a sword and having a spear
in his hand. He walked around the
table in a swashbuckled style, sword
drawn, and caused the greatest
amusement and interest.
There was a little fellow in Italy
who was carried around in a parrot's
cage and exhibited for money. He
was only thirteen inches high. A
Frenchman of Limonsin, with a for
+ mal beard, was also shown in a cage
for money. He was about fifteen in
e hes high. At the end of the eage
was a little huteh into whic~h he re
tired. Whien the house was full he
stepped forth and played a tune on
Going away baek--without sitting
dowp-Jeffrey Hudson was the won
der of his age. His father was a
batcher, stout and of good height,
and his mother was a large woman.
At the age of eight he was sixteen
inches in height. The Duchess of
Buckingham adopted him. She cloth
ed him always in satin. At a royal
* feast he was served in a cold pie,
* walking forth in complete armor. Be
* ing presentea 'to Quebn Henrietta
Maria, he offered her much amuse
-merrt. The king had a gigantic por
ter, William Evans. In a mask ball
at court, Evans hauled out of one
* pocket a long loaf of bread and out
of the other little Jeffrey. This
dwarf was employed upon a delicate
mission to France as ambassador. On
his way home he was captured by a
* Flemish pirate. His captivity is the
subject of a poem by Sir William
Davenant. entitled "Jeffredos.'' He
* lived to be 60 years'of age.
It's a wonder ba'bies don't learn
to swear before they can speak asC
a' reaction against the kind of lan
guage that is talked to them.
