THE CONFESSION DIDN'T WORK.
Bat It Made Him Forget His Sands
"This Sunday school precept business
is all very well in its way," says ex-Senator
Waller Young, of St. Joseph, "but
it doesn't always work in the rush of
practical life. When I was a boy I had
the prettiest notions about confessing
a fault, never telling a lie, and all that
sort of thing. One day I threw a rock
carelessly and it broke a large pane of
glass in the college building. Nobody
saw me. I could have escaped without
detection, but after reviewing all my
Sunday school precepts it occurred to
me that the grand and noble course for
me to pursue would be to call at once
upon the president and tell him how I
had accidentally broken the window
pane. It was a brilliant resolution, and
as I started toward the president's office
I could almost hear hiin 6ay: 'Bravo
boy, your manly conduct is worth a
dozen panes of college glass. Go thy
way, my son, and be more careful in the
future.' The president was a stern, dig
nified man, and I approached with a
great display of humility:
" 'Mr. President,' said I, 'I broke a
pane of glass just now, but I didn't go
to do it
" 'What's thatr he thundered, laying
down his book and freezing me with a
look. 'You did what?
" 'Broke a pane of glass in the chapel,
" 'You didl Well, young man, you
bring $1.75 with you tomorrow morning
to pay for it, or Til send the bill to your
father. Understand that, sir?
" 'Ye-ye-yes. sir,' I faltered.
"You bet I understood it. It meant
another humiliating confession at home
and a possible thrashing for my careless
ness. But it taught me a lesson. The
next time I broke a window glass I ran
like a turkey, and let the darned old col
lege find out who did it. And they never
caught me on another $1.75, either."
