A 9-year-old boy was once asked the

The father had been unable to ans

"A Boy of Ten." His son had picked
up the questions in that gloom which

glibiy recited the answers which his
father was unable to bring to his
Nothing had been Mid at home
about father being a moron. That
subject had been avoided by mother
and Aunt Susie who was a dinner

the boy's mind.
Here were printed questions which |
his father could not answsr and he 1
coud answer himself. The questions j
were marked "tor S boy Of 10." He 1

Then when the boy learned through
the lecture of some visiting pundit

the man who had carried him in his

The man who had taught him his A

to snap psychology.
The head waiter at the Gran. Coi
fax says that all men born since 1895
are "morons" but that is a more or
less selfish point of view. The pub-,
lie is more concerned with men who
were born before that time.
I,et us see what a "boy of ten" in
these days does know. In the first
place he can tell the "greatest com

denominator," greatest common divi

He can tell who has the best bat

Jack Dempsey weighed at Boyle's
Acres, who killed Cock Robin and
Stanley Ketchell, how many buffalo
skins Buffalo Bill had on his over
coat, the date of the armistice and
the age of the kaiser.
On the other hand his father drifts
along with a little hit of knowledge
which allows him to know a few drab
facts, such as the rent of *.he apart

life insurance company and the pre

balance and appurtenances concering

clothing, both for children and for

Father says the test is unfair, but
is willing, as always, to give the boy
the best of it. Father says "that if
he had a chance to "brush up
