The Fable of the Youth Who Went to
College and Came Back.
Once upon a time there was a
young man who felt that he should
like to own great flocks o f learn
ing and knowledge, so he left his
paternal roof and took up his
abode in a city that boasted a
State University. He was accom
panied by his ancestor’s check
book and a determination to be
come an exceedingly wise man.
Four years worked wonders for
him. He learned to talk Esper
anto and write Greek. He learn
ed how to measure the distance
between the planet Jupiter and
Peoria, Illinois. He learned how
to play football and to fox-trot.
And he forgot how to plow corn
and to chop wood. When com
mencement day came ’round he
was the most honored man in
school. And why not? He knew
more about transcendentalism than
a ward politician knows about
shaking hands. He could orate in
a manner that would have turned
senators green with envy. He
could find more values fo ra simul
taneous quadratic equasion than
his professor in mathematics. The
old college president sent word to
his home folks that they owned a
remarkable son and that the col
lege was proud o f him.

Commencement over, this very
embodiment o f knowledge started
out to sell some o f his services to
the business men in those parts,
but greatly to his surprise and
even greater to his consternation,
he met with very little success. It
seemed that the business men he
visited wanted a man who could
sell goods rather than one who
could find new freckles on the sun.
In fact, most o f them were un
aware the sun was freckled. Sev
eral o f them told him so.
And it came to pass that he was
forced to go back to the farm and
