Ora Samuel Gray tells a story of
the "failure'' of one lecture course
that Is worth another:
A few years ago, In one of the
smaller New England villages," a min
ister and a high school principal ar
ranged' for a lecture course for the
purpose of making money to secure
new books for the public library.
The list of talent secured from Bos
ton bureau included three concert
companies, a lecturer and an enter
tainer. The concerts had already
been given, and on the afternoon
when the lecturer "was to appear In
the evening, a farmer, who lived out
In the country, said to his wife, "I
don't believe I care to go to the lec
ture tonight. Lectures are usually
terribly dry." "That Is Just what I
thought," was the reply. "I had a
good deal rather go to bed than hear
a dry old lecture, and we will throw
our tickets a,way and stay at home."
The old man went out to the barn
in do his chores, humming a tune,
happy td think that he was not ob
liged to hear a "dry old lecture" that j
About half' an hour after that, the!
two boys who., worked on the farm
came Into the house for supper and
while they were at the wash stand
the lady of the house sald:"Boys,
you know that we have the finest lec
ture course down at the village that
you ever heard of. My husband and
I have been going, but you boys
have been sd good that we decided
that if you will promise to work
hard all next summer, we will stay
at home tonight and let you have our
tickets and go. ' How generous peo
ple can be with things they don't
want. The boys hurried with their
chores, put on their Sunday clothes
and walked three miles and a half to
the village and found their places In
the town hall. .
The lecturer spoke that night on
the possibilities of por boys. He said
the men who had made America
great, the men who had led our civi
lization up the steps of light and lib
erty, were born, not Iu the great
cities, but on the hills and In the vil
lages of the country towns.
Tom and Charley sat there with
eyes and ears and mouth wide open,
drinking In every word .the lecturer
uttered. Finally when the lectur
er said "Good-night," the boys start
ed up the long hill to the farm
house. 'They walked a mile without
saying a word. At the top of the
hill Tom said, "Charles, what are you
thinking about?" "Oh, I don't know.
What are you?" "I was thinking
about what the man said down at
the town hall tonight. I have mae
up my mind I am not going to work
out all my life on an old farm for
$10.00 a month. I am going to be
somebody sometime," said Tom. "My
folks are dead and I haven't any
money: but If those other fellows
in do all the things he said, why
n't we do something?" The next
jiornlng the boys returned the course
ticket to the lady and thanking her
for the plensure she had given them,
and then procceeding to their work
on the farm.
In the spring, when the last num
ber of the lecture course was given,
the principal of the school was com
pelled to tell the audience that, In
stead of mnklng money for the libra
ry, the lecture course has lost four
teen dollars and fifty-five cents. Af
ter the entertainment a number of
the men gathered around the old
stove In the village store, and sat on
nail kegs and soap boxes, and laughed
about the minister and principal be
cause the lecture course had lost
fourteen dollars and fifty-five cents.
The consensus of opinion was that
the lecture course had been a fail
ure. At a meeting of the Ladles'
Aid Society, the next day, the verdict
of the "store conrt" was confirmed.
There are two sides to most stories.
This Is no exception for on the 23rd
of June, 1903. Tom and Charley re
ceived the degree of A. B. from one
of tho largest universities on the
American continent, and as far as
they were concerned the lecture
course was no failure.
