lad's future was to be shaped, and finally
went for advice to tha village sage, who
at one time had been a part of the selfish,
striving 'world, and who left It scarred
and shaken, but full of wisdom. And tha
saga told the perplexed father how to de
termine his soh' future and tha father

sage In' sore perplexity. v
