The Sopliomorites plan to deceive Maximillian. ID. Sopliomorites sing praises. 15. They speak of the ten silver talents. 16. Maximillian is deceived. 17. His conceit. 1. Behold it came to pass 011 a certain day in the year of our Lord eighteen hundred and ninety-two, a young man, who was called Maximillian, gathered daily with the scribes and people. 2. Now Ma.ximillian was of the tribe of the Freshites who were sojourners in the land of Emasee. 3. And he was a just man and righteous in his own conceit, but he had this little shortcoming. 4. And this fault, which is called conceit, worketh destruction to him which possesseth it. 5. Now, when the morning was come, a great band of Sophomorites, who were pub- licans and sinners, gathered upon the high- way and byway of the land. 6. And there came also upon the high- ways men of the tribe of Seniorites and of the tribes of Juniorites. 7. And behold the men of the tribe of Sophomorites gathered themselves together and whispered among themselves. 8. And they rejoiced thereat with exceed- ing great joy, but their joy was hidden. 9. And it came to pass, as Maximillian approached the gates of the Temple they raised their voices and saluted him, saying: 10. Hear, O ye Seniorites! Give ear, O ye Juniorites ! We will sing unto Maximil- lian ; we sing praises unto Maximillian the Fresh ite. 11. And Maximillian understood them not, and marveled greatly within himself. 12. And again they opened their mouths, and spake unto him, saying : 13. Behold wisdom is justified in her peo- ple, but the fool worketh his own destruction. Hail, Maximillian ! 14. But Maximillian understanding them not, spake unto them, saying: I know not whereof ye speak. 15. And they said unto him: Behold to- day thou art honored in the land. To-day thou art awarded ten silver talents for thy wisdom and thy knowledge of the flowers of the field. Hail, Maximillian ! 16. And again they said unto him : Go thou straightway unto the house of Samuel the professor, and receive the ten talents awarded thee. For they were deceitful men and sought his humiliation. 17. Then was Maximillian ' s heart swollen with pride, and conceit sat with his soul. 18. And he was much puffed up; and he went his way and spake not to the men of any tribe. CHAPTER II. Maximillian goeth to the house of Samuel. He is followed by the Sophomorites. He is entertained by the wife of Samuel. Samuel enters. Maximillian demands the talents. Samuel ' s surprise. Light comes to Samuel. His advice. Maximillian goeth away. The glee of the Sophomorites.

1. And behold when evening was come about the seventh hour he went to the Mount of the Vineyard. 2. For the house of Samuel, the professor, who was a wise man and a ruler in the land, was upon the jSIount of the Vineyard. 3. And certain of the tribe of the Sopho- morites, seeing him, followed him afar off. 4. And he went straightway unto the house of Samuel and knocked upon the door thereof. For Samuel was a judge in the land and knew all things concerning the flowers of the field. 5. And the door was opened unto him and he entered therein. 6. And behold the men of the tribes of the Sophomorites who had followed him came nigh unto the house of Samuel and sought after him and saw him enter therein. 7. And they went their way and reported all things unto the men of their tribe, and u nto the tribe of Seniorites, and to the tribe of Juniorites, and unto the tribe of Freshites. 8. Now, Samuel the wise man was not in the house, for he was farther up in the Mount of the Vineyard, among the fruit trees and the grape vines. For he would watch the fruit. 9. But the wife of Samuel received the young man kindly, and bade him sit. 10. And she spake to him concerning many things, and entertained him. 11. Now Samuel ' s daughter was also in the room. 12. But Maximillian answered only yea and nay, for his thoughts were upon the ten silver talents. 13. And it came to pass that Samuel en- tered the house and sat, and spake to his guest concerning the weather and many things. 14. But Ma.ximillian was silent, and mar- veled much within himself. 15. For he expected that Samuel would soon produce the ten silver talents. 16. But .Samuel spake only of the crops and other things. 17. Now Samuel was sometimes called .Samuel, and sometimes he was called I ' ro- fessor, but in general he was called Pro- fessor. 18. And after a little time Maximillian raised his voice and spake unto Samuel, say- ing: 19. Professor, I have come for the ten silver talents. 20. But Samuel was much bewildered and marveled greatly. 21. And he answered him, saying : I know not whereof you speak. 22. And again Maximillian spake unto him, saying : 23. I have come for the ten silver talents that have been awarded me for my wisdom and my knowledge of the lilies of thy field and the flowers thereof. 24. And again Samuel said unto him : Ver- ily, verily, I know nothing about this matter. 25. And he questioned Maximillian and learned from whom he had received the word. 26. And when he had heard that the men of the tribe of Sophomorites had given the word to Maximillian, he was filled with un- derstanding. 27. And light came into his soul and again he answered Maximillian, saying: 28. Go thy way with care, brother Ma.xi- millian. Happy is thy lot if the men of the tribe of Sophomorites have not seen ye enter here. 29. But if they have seen thee come nigh unto my house, thy ways will be hard and thy paths thorny in the land. 30. Straightway go thju out this back way, brother Maximillian ; be thou careful of thy speech. 31. And Maximillian ' s heart was hum- bled, and he went his way sadly. 32. But the men of the tribe of Sopho- morites published the matter unto all the land and unto the corners of the earth, and unto the four winds thereof. 33. And this was the manner of tlieir speech : 34. liehold wisdom is justified in her peo- ple, but the fool worketh his own destruction. Moral : The seeds of Sophomoric delusion germinate only in the fertile " •rounds of egotism and conceit.
