"Sammy" Qwho has what Prof. Owen calls the aesthetic sensej blushes crimson and shifts
in his embarrassment from one foot to another until he meets the glance of our prodigy. Thus
inspired he skilfully evades and answers:
"Mit den Lippen sprechen wir."
The Doktor no less surprised by the ingenuity as by the correctness of the answer ventures
to ask another.
"Was tun Sie mit den Handen ?"
But this was too much. "Sammy's" aesthetic sense got so much control of him this time that
he disclained to give such a prosaic answer as before, and his confusion and the pleasant memories
aroused prevented any other. For once our prodigy failed.
The Doktor, already repenting for having tried to make too much of a good thing, made
ample apologies which we can not here recollect, but ends with:
"Sic mogen sich setzenf'
Sammy intelligently obeys.
The Doktor, looking at his watch, hastily resumes:
"Herr Klein! Gehen Sie an die Tafelf' '
The Herr addressed, if not understanding the words, could not doubt the sweeping gesture:
and starts toward the board.
The Doktor Cagain consulting his watchj, "Schnell."
Herr Klein halts.
The Doktor shouts: "Scheller, Schnellerf'
Klein fwho takes Prof. Mecklinj has logic enough to feel assured that if he wasn't meant
to stop, he was to go on. This he does hastily. The Doktor seeing such an unusual sign of
intelligence is satisfied and so says: ,
"Setzen Sie sich! Das ist genung!"
Herr Klein, only understanding the first part, looks doubtfully toward the Doktor and then
toward the floor, but finally resolutely and defiantly goes to his seat, and sits down there.
Now the Doktor begins to give the class an interesting German account of how grain is sowed,
thrcshed, made into bread, etc., but Herr Miller, who comes from the outlying districts, interrupts
and blandly but courteously informs the Doktor that the field is first harrowed and then planted.
Seeing that the class was not appreciating his efforts, he began the last part in the recitation.
Up to this time, the Doktor led the conversation. Now the Doktor leaves it all to the class
to ask one another questions and converse.
Herr Spotts was to open the conversation. Noticing the far-away look in the eyes of Herr
Klein, he asks:
"Herr Klein, wie heiszt sie?"
Taken unawares Herr Klein in a rapturous tone begins, "sie heiszt-," but suddenly realizing
the reality of things saucily replies, "Was ist das zu you?" fthe Doktor has become engrossed in
an illustrated German magazine, and is oblivious to the errors of his young hopefulsj.
In turn Klein asks:
"Herr Miller F., bist du hier?" 4
"Nein! Ich bin da!" Csarcasticallyj "Herr Pryce, wie spat waren Sie aus last night."
tThe Doktor's smile broadens as he regards the beauty of the picture from all angles. Either
