Oh, if you haven't got money,
of course you'll have to work some
to get an education. That's the
beauty of it. Your father rather
lielieves, my son, that work is a
good thing. There's discipline in
it. It keeps you busy, and that
keeps you out of a lot of trouble.
If you are working for a thing it's
a pretty good sign you want it and
will value it and use it properly
when you do get it. The education
you have to work for is the best
kind. I have two loys in mind
now. Both came from the same
county went to school, in fact, in
the. same town; yes, same school.
Both had fair schooling as schools
went in those days. Boy number
one was sent to school by kind par
ents. Boy number two went to
school himself, somehow. 'He had
kind parents, too, but they were
poor, I reckon. Anyhow their boy
went to school, wasn't sent. He
fed horses, chopjied stovewood,
and lighted the town lamps to get
money. Prcmemlicr well hearing
how that when he applied for one
of these jobs the man said "Why,
Will, that's a nigger's joV
And the man said that he never
felt such a rebuke in his life as he
got from Will. Will looked hurt
at first for just a Hooting moment,
and then looking grand and strong
he said, "I can do anything a nig
ger can!" he didn't say any more
words, so the man told me, but his
looks seemed to add "and I can
do it a sight better!" He got the
job and did it better and kept on
going to school. Oh, no, he didn't
go through college and rise up to
be a great orator; not that.
Boy number one is now doing
service in one of the highest and
best equi pied penitentiaries in the
country for robbing a bank he was
working for of $40,000. Boy num
ber two is now a good citizen in n
substantial North Carolina town,
right good at helping poor boys
who don't mind work, his counsel
