1. Translate into the vernacular specified in your application :

(a) Asoka attached the greatest importance to the atmost possible promptitude in the administration of justice, and to the readiness of the sovereign to hear complaints at all times and in all places. His views would still meet with general approval from the natives of India, who prize very highly readiness of access to their rulers and set no value whatever upon regularity of procedure. Asoka announced to his people that he was ready at any place and at any honr of the day or night to receive and redress complaints. No more popular announcement could be made by an Indian sovereign, although to the Western mind it seems unpractical. When Asoka adds to the announcement the emphatic declaration- I am never satisfied with the adequacy of 'my exertions or the promptitude of my decision of cases. Work I must for the the public benefit, and the object of all my exertion is simply to discharge my debt to living beings, so that I may make some of them happy in this world, and that hereafter they may attain heaven'-- he is entitled to be believed. The immense trouble which he took to propagate his teaching proves both his sincerity and his habit of industry.

(6) When Hercules was in that part of his youth in which it was natural for him to consider what course of life he ought to parsne, he one day retired into a desert where the silence and solitude of the place very much favoured his meditations. As he was musing on his present condiand very much perplexed in himself as to the state of life he should choose, he saw two women of a stature larger tban ordinary approaching towards him. One of them had a very noble air and gracefal deportment; her beauty was natural, her person clean and anspotted, hor eyes were cast towards the gronnd with an agreeable reserve, her movements

and bebaviour full of modesty, and her raiment as white ag snow. The
other had a great deal of health and beauty in her countenance; she
endeavoured to appear more than nsaally graceful in her mien. She
cast ber eyes opon berself and then turned them on those that were
present to see how they liked her, and she often looked on the figure she
made in her shadow.
