"Wee. wee. wee!" cried Mrs. Woodchuck's children, and Tingaling and the

Are your sure those are your children?" asked Tingling.
"Sure!" answered Mrs. Woodchuck indignantly. 'Do you think I'd go .to
the trouble of bringing up my neighbor's? We have enough to do to feed our
selves." "No doubt that's true," said TIngaling quickly, "in fact, I may as well tell
you, Mrs. Woodchuck, that my little friends and I heard only today that your
husband Wally had put out the children to shift for themselves, as he wished
all the food for himself!"

He pretended not to see the people crowding into the room, and seemed
awfully surprised when the fairyman landlord shook his bells and said Ahem
quite loudly. .
"Why, I declare!" yawned Wally. "Did you get tired waiting for the sassa
fras for your tea, folks? I heard the children fussing, so I came upstairs,
was nearly asleep myself."
Tingaling looked stern. He knew Wally was not telling the truth.

I picked up the receiver of the phone

reported that he had gone out to try

hours lying on his stomach stuflyins
heavy books, and that Benjamin
Franklin led a toilsome youth. Th
young aspirant is taught to believe that
he too may becom a Lincoln or a
Franklin if he will only work hnrd

is endowed by nature with a preat

not so endowed, no amount of work
can make him anything hut a medi

only when you are really interested

find what interests you and then do it

A BURST OF PRECOCITY
which he most
By Frederic J. Haskin ,
NEW YORK, June 22. With chil
dren nine to twelve years of age writ
ing books and contributing to the
magazines, boys just out of college and
boarding school writing realistic novels
which cause sensations In literary cir
cles, and a dramatist in his twenties
setting a new standard for the Ameri
can stage, the English speaking world
is witnessing a remarkable display of
The first and best known of these
young wonders is the now famous
Daisy Ashford, whose book, attested
by James Barry to have been written
at the age of nine, has sold In enor
mous numbers. But Daisy Ashford
does not really belong to this group of
precocities, for her Jbook was written
long ago . and she is now a grown
woman. Furthermore, it sounds like
the work of a child of nine, and Is In
teresting chiefly as a curiosity. The
same is true of several child authors
who have sought to emulate her suc
cess, one of whom is publishing in a
leading American highbrow magazine.
Their work is undoubtedly remark
able for children, but it is not of any
considerable literary value.
A great deal more Interesting Is the
group of what might be called "boy
novelists" from seventeen to twenty
three years of age, who have recently
published works of realistic fiction hat
win the praise of the most conserva
tive critics. This group is. especially
appealing. For a long time the gray
beards have held the limelight in liter
ature or If not the graybeards at least
the mature. As the study of any bio
graphical dictionary will show, few
writers produce anything that attracts
attention before the age of thirty, and
few make much of a reputation or get
a wide hearing until they are near
forty. This means that a man gen
erally does not succeed In lmpresslns
himself on his fellows until he Is past
his youth. It means that In litera
ture as in almost everything else, this
is a world dominated by the mature
and the old, against whom youth
struggles for Its ideals and its desires
largely in vain. It has been pointed
out many times that old men make
the wars and young men fight them
It might be said with almost equal
truth that old men make the laws and
young people have to obey them, the
old generally being strong enough to
pet around them. It Is likewise the
old and the mature who fix social cus
tom and convention, and it Is the
young upon whom these restrictions
press most heavily. Every father is
bent on srfving his sons from the vices
enjoys, and every
mother seeks carefully to guard her
daughter from the indiscretions which
made her own youth romantic and in
teresting. All of us have a powerful
penchant for saving the other fellow's
soul, and the old indulge this penchant
constantly upon the young. .
This burst of youthful genius there
fore means nothing less than a revolt
of youth, and a successful one, against
the inhibitions which age has sought
to lay upon it. These young men have
demanded a hearing and they have
gotten it. They have told all the
world how the world looks to a human
insect who has just emerged from the
cocoon of a formal education and is
about to try his wings in the more or
less free air of civilized society. All
of them have a great deal to say about
the kind of education which the ciders
have provided for them, and all of
them have something to say about
love and marriage. Education and
sex are about the only things of which
they' have any experience, but on these
subjects their opinions are emphatic
Boy Geniuses Here and Abroad
The youngest of the boy novelists is
an English lad named Alec Waugh,
who has written a novel setting forth
his experiences in the British schools.
His book is commended by critics as a
really brilliant performance, and he
finds going to school on the whole a
barbarous and futile business. He
was only seventeen years old when his
book was written.
His fellow genius on this side is F.
Scott Fitzgerald who at the age of 23
has gritten a novel of life in a high
class American "prep" school, and at
Princeton, which has run through
several editions and attracted the wid
est attention. Fitzgerald"-? hero found
his school and college life amusing,
but he does not record that he learned
anything of importance there. He de
scribes Princeton as a delightful coun
try club where everything possible was
done to make a correct snob of him.
He also tried to get married but failed
because he had not enough money.
The girl with whom he fell in love
was the typical American debutante,
trained for nothing except the career
of a very pampered and extravagantly
kept woman. This recalcitrant hero
also goes to war and he does not like
war any better than he did love or edu
cation. He finds everything all wrong
and ends by becoming a socialist on
the ground that he has everything to
gain and nothing to lose by a radical
change in the existing order, of things.
A very similar book is that of
Robert Nathan, who takes life at Har
vard as his theme, and whose hero also
dabbles in marriage and radicalism.
He also finds human society to be
badly arranged and conducted.
All of this youthful literature sounds
the same note. Formal education, it
says, is a hollow farce and love Is a
mercenary fizzle. The same idea in
a slightly different form runs through
Eugene O'Neil's famous play, "Hon
zona." Although a few years older
than the novelists, O'Neil cannot have
been more than 23 or 24 when he wrote
his play, for he was a long time get
ting it produced. It Is the story of
an aspiring young man isolated on a
typical American farm. His hopes are
crushed and he is finally killed by the
routine of labor and the restrictions of
marriage. O'Neil joins Nathan and
Fitzgerald in saying that organized
society meets the youth of imagination
and ideals with a club.
Does Early Budding Btar Fruit?
It is a widely held popular idea that
the prococious young person is a weed
of rank and brief growth that he is
apt to run his course quickly. But
no scientific support can be found for
this notion. Francis Gal ton in his
sjudy of hereditary genius records
that a large number of the world's
great creative minds showed their abil
ity at an early age. Donaldson In his
"Growth of the Brain" says that an
early development of mental power
usually indicates also a capacity for
prolonged growth. These young men
have the very best of opportunities
for high and long-continued achieve'
merit. The greatest danger to which
they are exposed, so far as genuine
achievement is concerned, is that the
commercial publishing Interests will
thwart their development by inducing
them to do cheap and hasty work. This
is the process which has ruined more
writers in America than any other.
hat scientific literature we can
find on precocity and mental develop
ment also knocks a hole in another
popular idea that hard work will ac
complish almost anything in the way
of development. The authorities are
agreed that the quality of a man's
achievement depends far more on the
innate character of his brain cells than
on his education, training or effort
toward self-improvement. It has long
been the custom to point out to young
