she was driving down a remote country lane, Alice noticed that her car was
behaving strangely. The engine made a terrible rattling noise and smoke was
starting to come out from under the bonnet. Alice stopped the car to see if she
could work out what the problem was. As she was lifting up the car bonnet, a
deep voice from behind her said,
‘If I were you, I’d change the spark plugs.’
Alice looked around her, but couldn’t see anyone in sight. There was a large
brown horse with a white star on its forehead. It was looking over the fence at
‘I’m imagining it,’ she thought to herself and took another look at the engine.
But once again, as soon as she turned her back on the horse, the deep voice
‘It’s the spark plugs, I’m telling you.’
Again, she turned to find no one in sight apart from the brown horse. By this
stage, Alice was feeling quite unnerved, so she got into the car again. She
drove the car slowly to the next village where eventually she found a mechanic.
Feeling slightly foolish, she explained about the problem with the car and told
the mechanic what the horse had said about the spark plugs.
‘And you say there was nobody around except a horse, when you heard this?’ asked
‘Not a soul!’ replied Alice, ‘Just a big horse.’
‘Was it a brown horse with a white star in the middle of its forehead?’
‘Yes, that’s right. It was.’
‘Oh, I wouldn’t take any notice of him, if I were you. That’s old
Brownie. He doesn’t know anything about engines. He always says it's the spark

Before you read the text, read the following comprehension questions.
1. What were the colours of the different kinds of
tickets that Tom had?
2. How did Tom get the tickets?
3. What do you think the expression ‘his tongue was tied’ means?
4. How many verses of the bible did they think Tom had learned?
5. What question did the judge ask Tom?
Now read the text and answer the questions.
There was only one thing that was missing in
order to make Mr. Walters' ecstasy complete, and that was a chance to deliver a
Bible-prize and find a prodigy for everyone to see.
Several pupils had a few yellow tickets, but none had enough. He had been asking
around among the star pupils. He would have given anything, now, to have that
German boy back again with such a good brain.
And now at this moment, just when hope was dead, Tom Sawyer came forward with
nine yellow tickets, nine red tickets, and ten blue ones, and demanded a Bible.
This was a thunderbolt out of a clear sky. Walters was not expecting an
application from this boy for the next ten years. But there was no denying it,
this boy had the tickets and they all looked valid.
Tom was therefore elevated to a place with the Judge and the other places of
honour, and the great news was announced. It was the most stunning surprise of
the decade, and the feeling was so deep that it lifted Tom up to the judge’s
altitude and hero status.
Now, the school had two marvels to look up to in place of one. The boys were all
eaten up with envy, but those that suffered the most were those who realized too
late that they themselves had contributed to this by swapping tickets with Tom
for the wealth he had obtained by selling the opportunity to paint the fence.
These children despised themselves, as being the victims in a nasty trick.
The prize was delivered to Tom with as much enthusiasm as the teacher could
manage under the circumstances, but it lacked truthfulness. The poor man's
instinct told him that there was a mystery here that could not be known. It was
simply ridiculous that this boy had learned two thousand pages of biblical
wisdom on his own. A dozen would be pushing things to the limit, without a
Amy Lawrence was proud and happy, and she tried to make Tom see it in her face,
but he wouldn't look.
She wondered why, then, she was just a bit upset. Then a small suspicion came
and went, then came again. She watched. A quick glance showed a lot and then her
heart broke, and she was jealous, and angry, and the tears came and she hated
everybody. Tom most of all (she thought).
Tom was introduced to the Judge, but his tongue was tied, his breath would
hardly come, his heart shook, partly because of the awful greatness of the man,
but mainly because he was her parent. He would have liked to fall down and
worship him, if it were in the dark. The Judge put his hand on Tom's head and
called him a fine little man, and asked him what his name was. The boy
stammered, gasped, and got it out:
"Oh, no, not Tom, it is……"
"Ah, that's it. I thought there was more to it, maybe. That's very well. But
you've another name I suppose, and you'll tell it to me, won't you?"
"Tell the gentleman your other name, Thomas," said Walters, "and say sir. You
mustn't forget your manners."
"Thomas Sawyer, sir."
"That's it! That's a good boy. Fine boy. Fine, manly little fellow. Two thousand
verses is a great many, very, very great many. And you can never be sorry for
the trouble you took to learn them because knowledge is worth more than anything
there is in the world.
It's what makes great men and good men. You'll be a great man and a good man
yourself, some day, Thomas, and then you'll look back and say, It's all owing to
the precious Sunday-school privileges of my boyhood. It's all owing to my dear
teachers that taught me to learn. It's all owing to the good teacher, who
encouraged me, and watched over me, and gave me a beautiful Bible, a splendid
elegant Bible, to keep and have it all for my own, always. It's all owing to
being brought up correctly! That is what you will say, Thomas, and you wouldn't
take any money for those two thousand verses, no indeed you wouldn't.
And now you wouldn't mind telling me and this lady some of the things you've
learned, no, I know you wouldn't, because we are proud of little boys that
learn. Now, no doubt you know the names of all the twelve disciples. Won't you
tell us the names of the first two that were appointed?"
Tom was pulling at a button-hole and looking sheepish. He blushed, now, and his
eyes fell. Mr. Walters' heart sank within him. He said to himself, it is not
possible that the boy can answer the simplest question, why DID the Judge ask
him? Yet he felt obliged to speak up and say:
"Answer the gentleman, Thomas. Don't be afraid."
Tom still stayed silent.
"Now I know you'll tell me," said the lady. "The names of the first two
"DAVID AND GOLIAH!"
Let us draw the curtain of charity over the rest of the scene.
