"Sterne gets a «ood d^-al of praise for
the origination of this sentence, but it
was originated, as a matter of- fact,

French proverbs published In 1504 we
find, 'Dieu mesure le vent a la brebis

The cultured periods of Egypt may be

The development of Peruvian civili

successive periods, would result in a
stratification of cultures representing
between 2,000 and 3,000 years. About
the year 1000 B. C., at the time when
Solomon built his temple, the early
Americans in Peru reared their mighty
structures to the glory of a creator god.
Civilization in America would beyond
all doubt have worked itself up to a
high plane at some time and might
have accomplished alone a peculiar
but certainly brilliant development
without the Intervention of European
civilization.—Professor Max Uhle in

The Foot Astray,
William F. Cody was once relating a
story which concerned an Indian who
had met with an accident In a Buffalo
Bill show. It was necessary to ampu
tate the Indian's leg, and in the de
scription of this operation Cody was
interrupted frequently by a young doc
tor who Injected technical and medical
terms into the straight vernacular of
the scout. He was irritated, but ig
nored the doctor. "A few days after
the operation," continued the narrator,
"the Indian learned that bis leg had
been buried. With a whoop be leaped
from his bed and jumped upon the doc
tor with both feet."
"Jumped with both feet after an op
eration?" shouted the doctor, exulting
in his exposure of the great scout's ab
surd story.
"I said upon the 'doctor with both
feet.'" explained Cody, "In order to
distinguish him from the other hospital
physician, who had only one foot, hav
ing put the other into people's affairs
so often that he lost it."
The Way Home.
When the bishop of Truro, Dr. Gott,
was dean of Worcester bis absent
mindedness was so notorious that he
earned for himself the sobriquet of
"Dean Fbr-Gott"
On one occasion he bad Invited some
friends tp dine with him. On their ar

hour, he suggested that in the Interval

Uke to walk through the grbtthds.
After spending about a quarter of an
hour In admiring the floweta, shrubs
and greenhouses they suddenly came
upon a door in the garden wall.
"Ah!" said the dean to his astonished
guests. "This will be a much nearer
way for you to go home than by going
baca to the front!" And, forgetting
his invitation, be opened the door and
bowed them out.
Offensive Cravat.
A good story of Whistler and his pe
culiarities is told in the Free Lance.
A gentleman went to Whistler with a
letter of introduction and sent up his
card with the letter. The servant pres
ently brought down the card with a
note in pencil on it—"Who is the great
est painter?" The visitor promptly
wrote "Whistler" and was immediate
ly shown upstairs. An amusing scene
followed, arising out of the fact that
the visitor was wearing a red necktie.
Whistler declared it interfered with the
color scheme of his room and "put him
off" a picture he was painting in quite
a different "key." Finally he obliged
him to take off the offending cravat be
fore he would condescend' to exchange
another word with him.
