The young artist vet them all "under the book-' board" and transfem~ed them to can-i yes at his leisure. Everybedy knows that Millets was an "infnnt prodigy.' Did he not win the gold medal of the Royal academy when he was nine? At South Kensington hangs a glow- hag and masterly canvas entitled "Pi- zarro Seizing the Inca of PerU." How many boys of fifteen know anything of Pizarro or the Incas even if they happen to know the whereabouts of Peru? Yet Millets was only that age when he not only knew these things, but could realize them in splendid power in paint and ~get his tficture on the line at the academy, a~l be was only nineteen whel~he painted one of his supreme mast~teces, Judged by some to be the g~atest thing he ever did, "l,ordnzo and Isabel's," which is one of the treasures of th~ Walker Art Gallery of Llverpoob Holman Hunt was only twenty when he painted his famous ,,Eve of St. Ag- nes" and still little more than a~%0y when he painted his remarkable pic- ture which he called "Behold I Stand at the Door and Knock," but which is known to the world today as "The Light of the World," a replica of which can be seen in St. paul's cathedral.

The tired father of a restless boy orated as follows, not speaking to the boy directly, but doing it in his pres- ence: "tlow true it is that it is never safe to judge by appearances!" "Yes," replied the boy's mother, see- ing tlmt it was her cue and answering with another version of the cliche, "ap- pegranees are often awfully decep- tive." "And so arc i:~:::d:uate objects," con- tinsel th,, pater:'arailias with marked emphasis. "You would think, for In- stance, if you jnd;r:cd by appearances. that the heavy pair of school shoes I bm:~ht for James the other (lay was ~'.'o':,;: to last for more than three v,',,,:.l:s, wouhln't yoU?

An empty hemled duke once said to Thomas Carlyle at a dinner: "The British people, sir. can afford to laugh at theories." Carlyle, scowling, replied: "The French nobility of a hundred years ago thought that they could af- ford to laugh at theorists too. But a man came and wrote a book called 'The Soctal Contract.' This man was~ Jean Jacques Rousseau, and his book was a theory and nothing but a ,theory. The nobles could laugh at his theory, but their skins went to bind the see- -~-d edit.ion of the book."
