A little note for fun

- Excuse me Sir, I am living in this house on the fifth floor. Would you be so kind to accompany me in the elevator?
- Well... Certainly Miss... Do you have a problem?
- Oh no, not at all, Sir! But the elevator is forbidden to unaccompanied children.
- Well... Certainly Miss... But may I ask you how old you are?
- Seventeen years Sir.
- Seventeen years!
- Yes Sir; the law asserts that I am a child until eighteen years. You know, my parents brought me up in the respect for the law, Sir.

(Praecor)

FROM THE EFFORTS
WHICH THEY HAVE MADE

THE SAGE MARVELS TO REAP
