Two politicians were exchanging ideas regarding the rewards for public service. “The rewards that i most desire,”said the First Politician, “is the gratifying, is the gratitude of my fellow citizens. ” “That would be very gratifying, no doubt, “said the Second Politician, “but, alas! in order to obtain it one has to retire from politics. ” For an instant they gazed upon each other with expressible tenderness ;then the First Politician murmured, “God’s will be done! Since we cannot hope for reward let us be content with what we have. ” And lifting their right hand for a moment from the lottery fund and public treasury they swore to be content.
