The Doktor finally gets impatient Cwe cannot blame himj but seeks for a justification of his next step, when he recalls that famous German proverb. With a brightening countenance he says: "Zeit ist Geld!" The class is almost vanquished by this wisdom, but that most brilliant wit of all South Easton, Hen Miller F., shouts, but "Schweigen ist Gold." The Doktor's sense of justice recognizes the truth of this, and himself vanquished addresses Miller R. with "Setzen Sie sich !" Miller mechanically sits down Qthis expression being understood by all not so much by its exact meaning as by the movement which habitually follows itj. The Doktor now seemed to be looking for a more hopeful case as he scanned our countenances. His glasses must have been blurred for he mistook for a pure German one the Pennsylvania-Dutch countenance of Fegley, whom he called on with an air of confident assurance: "Herr Fegley-Ist der Winter kalt oder warm?" - Fegley's answer, in pure Allentown dialect of Penna.-Dutch, is omitted by the express request of the Doktor. That excellent man, mastering his rising disgust with admirable self- control, hastened to the door and opened it as if to let out the air polluted by such a language. Recovered, he returns and mercilessly vanquishes the unsuspecting Fegley by looking him sternly in the eye, and contemptuously pronouncing these magical words. "Das ist nicht Deutscli !! " ' Fegley, humbled, meekly ventures to sit down. The Doktor, nodding his approval of this last action, resumes: "Herr Ketchleclge, Wann gehe11 Sie zu Bett? " Misintcrpreting the question our elongated hero answers, "Neinl " The Doktor misunderstanding the answer shouts: "Auf Deutsch! Auf Deutsch! Sie miissen Deutsch spreehen, nicht English! " This avalanche of Teutonic philosophy Cfor such we suppose itj almost stupefies our hero, who looks blankly at the Doktor, who being also compassionate kindly explains what is wanted, and Herr Ketchledge inspired by that prodigy, Laird, answers: "At bedtime. The Doktor was so confounded to find such wisdom in one who hails from Easton that he wholly overlooked the English answer, and for a couple of moments was speechless. Finally he recovers just in time to catch the class napping. He exclaims! "Herr Spotts! Schlafcn Sie?" Herr S. Cmeeklyj-"ja." ' The Doktor-"Warum?" Herr Spotts, who is at a loss for an answer, not knowing whether the word signified why, which, wherefore, or what, eventually answers: "Ich Weiss nicht." The Doktor now began to launch out into a tiradc against the class but, seeing in DeWces, who is eager to shine, a last hope, he calls on him. "Herr DeWces, Was tun Sie mit den Lippen?" 312
