THE INDEX. Is the crop early or late ? Well — I can hardly say. I think it ' s late, but then I guess You can grow it either way. The profit ? Then he names a price That would riches quickly bring. Not quite so much, the Prof, replies, Just half would be the thing. At every question asked of him, A plucky guess he ' ll make; Both pleased and happy will he be Should his answer chance to take. And so it goes from day to day, No lessons perfect said ; Each fellow with gigantic gall Depends on Fortune ' s aid. But when the day of reckoning comes. Their marks at last they see ; We fear that some unlucky guessers In the tureen will be.

EXASPERATION. And now that autumn ' s come again With its winds that wildly sweep, And its fallen leaves so bi ' own and sere That beside the roadways heap. The Junior doth his great coat don, And taking up his cane, Up the Botanic path he toils, With sighs and groans of pain. But when in Sammy ' s room he sits. He stares with vacant eye. Or else some playful deviltry Is planning on the sly. Perhaps some novel slyly hid Helps pass the time away, Or he may chance to study up On lessons for next day. A sudden start; his name is called; His dreams all rudely break. And all at once he ' s wondering How big a flunk he ' ll make. Er — well — er — yes the soil is light, And sometimes heavy too. And — well — I think the fact is, that Most any soil will do. (54)
