The education of the princes, under

"Then 1 advise you to investigate Ihe
matter at. once, (.'till the young man and
his pupils, and if everything is well I
will be oil' und never trouble you again."
The king thought this a very easy and
reasonable way of getting rid of ihe old
gentleman, and so he sent fur the new
professor-in-chief and for ihe princes,
who hud jusl returned, and proceeded al
once to ask questions
Well, the result may be conjectured.
Every trace of knowledge seemed to
have vanished from the boys' minds.
Indeed, they could scarcely read. Star
tled more and more, the king plied them
with every imaginable question. To
their own grief as well as his, they
found themselves absolutely ignorant.
"Leave tho palace!" shouted the king
to their dismayed teacher. "And. my
good sir, be pleased to resume your for
mer position as professor-in-chief, and
see what you can do for my poor sons.
I their, minds are not utterly ruinid,"
"Your majesty," said the old gentle
aiau, "I will accept my former position
in condition that this young man be re-
aincd in your employment, and be giv
,u equal honor with myself. We may
lolli be called professors, and there need
no no prol'essor-in-chief. I have learned
lo admire his ability, and regret my tin
fairness iu forcing him to teach only the
more stupid of your sons. We have
mill been using magic, and I propose
ue lay it aside from this moment, mid
proceed on old fashioned principles."
"I agree, my dear sir," cordially us
leiiled the former tulor, "for I fear that
;his uiagie learning is untrustworthy
To lie sure, it comes quickly, but il van
ishes as easily, I perceive. We have
now an opportunity to make a fresh and
lair start willi the princes, for their
knowledge is equal, since now liiey both
know nothing. I promise your majesty
lhat though their future progress may
be slower than the past, il will be more
L'erlain and sati.iiactory."
With this the two professors, the
young one and the old, retired from the
king's presence to consul! and form plans
together for I iie education of ihe princes
Having the rare opportunity of begin
uing again at thu start al ter so much ex
perience with the same boys, they
thought thill something wonderful should
he accomplished in the teacher's art.
And so it was: for the harmonious am
wise plans of the two professors, w ork
ing slowly but surelv lor inany yeari
gave tlie world two princes w hose mar
velous intelligence and wisdom were the
wonder, not only of Ihe kingdom over
which they came to reign jointly, but ol
One word to my h7.y readers and I
am done. Doubtless the fairy charm of
which 1 have told you may appear so
tempting on the occasion of your next
hard lesson that you will wish to try it
on yourself, undismayed by its sad re
sults in the case of the princes. Hut do
not venture. For everything depends
on moving the book from left to right,
hut whether it is from left to right of
the book, or from the left lo the right of
the scholar or of the teacher, I never
could learn Therefore, in iguorantly
operating on your Ives, you might
draw from your heads nil yon already
know, and that would be a pity. Amos
