When we visit a botanical garden

Some birds get very nervous nnd bo

other thing about this bird Is that it

Expression Now So Common, "Let
George Do It," Said to Have
Originated With Louis XII.
Many people go no further hack
than to the well-known play to nc
count for tho interesting little ejacula
tion, "Let George Do It." lis, senti
ment appeals to all of us strongly,
when wo wisli to shift a disagreeable
task from our own shoulders to those
of some other available person, whom
wo make ourselves bellevls Is more eill
clent perhaps we are lazy. Incident
ally, we may succeed also In making
him believe that be is the only person
for the Job.
It may chance that wo have tho legal
and ethical right to request George to
do it nnd that It Is tolerably certain
thnt George will patiently receive and
discharge the responsibility; or It may
be thnt we merely wash our hands of
the matter and with a shrug of the
shoulders proceed ou our way, roinarl
ing, "I can't. Let George do it."
However that may be, remarks the
Kansas City Star, the origin of tin
sentence Is this: Louis XII of France,
himself a strong ruler, was fortunnto
to have a prime minister who was a
clever executive and possessed of good
sense, George d'Ainhnlse. To him
Louis referred many of the most deli
cute and onerous affairs of the king
dom. Things turned out so satlsfac
torlly under George's manipulation
that Louis' slogan came to bo "Quo
