Over-wise





IN a lecture-room of St. John's College, Cambridge, a student one

morning, construing the Medea of Euripides came to the following

passage:--



[Greek: All ouk arisophos eimi.]



To which he gave the proper sense,--



I am not over-wise;



but pausing as if he doubted its correctness,--You are quite right,

sir, observed the lecturer; go on.
