LATIN PROSE. Examiner-Rev. Dr. A. F. R. HOERNLE. 1. Quid ego vitium ortas, satus, incrementa commemorem ? Satiari delectatione non possum, ut meæ senectutis requietem oblectamentumque noscatis. Omitto enim vim ipsam omnium quæ generantur e terra, quæ ex fici tantulo grano aut ex acino vinaceo aut ex ceterarum frugum ac stirpium minutissimis seminibus tantos truncos ramosque procreat. Malleoli, plantæ, sarmenta, viviradices, propagines nonne ea efficiunt, ut quemvis cum admiratione delectent ? Vitis quidem, quæ natura caduca est et, nisi fulta sit, fertur

ad terram, eadem ut se erigat, claviculis suis quasi manibus, quid est nacta, complectitur : qnam serpentem multiplici lapsu et erratico ferro amputans coërcet ars agricolarum, ne silvescat sarmentis et in omnes partes nimia fundatur.

2. Omnium ætatum certus est terminus, senectutis antem nullus certus est terminus, recteque in ea vivitur, quoad munus officii exsequi et tueri possis et tamen mortem contemnere. Ex quo fit, ut animosior etiam senectus sit quam adolescentia et fortior. Hoc illud est, quod Pisistrato tyranno a Solone responsum est, quum illi quærenti, qua tandem spe fretus sibi tam audaciter obsisteret, respon. disse dicitur, Senectute.

Sed vivendi est finis optimus quum integra mente ceterisque sensibus opus ipsa suum eadem, quæ coagmentavit, natura dissolvit. Ut navem, ut ædificium idem destruit facillime qui construxit, sic hominem eadem optime quæ conglutinavit, natura dissolvit. Jam omnis conglutinatio recens ægre, inveterata facile divellitur. Ita fit illud breve vitæ reliquum nec avide appetendum senibus, nec sine causa deserendum sit, vetatque Pythagoras injussu imperatoris, id est, dei de præsidio et statione vitæ decedere. Solonis quidem sapientis elogium est, quo se negat velle suam mortem dolore amicorum et lamentis vacare.
