Brewmaster the Knight,
A Needle and the Goat
.That Helped In
The Famous Bock Beer,
Many hnve often wondered where
the term "bock" beer originated and
thu meaning of the same. The records
of tho city of Munich. Bavaria, contain
the follow Inn explanation of the sub
jut: The Duke Clulstoph and his broth
oi, Albrecht II, were one day sitting
li the banquet hall of their castle. In
thtlr company was u HrunsvvlcU
knight, nnd the thiee vv lilted the time

ccutt blew cry. The knight took n
drop drnught of the beer and then, ic
placing the bumper on the table, slur
rlngiy remarked "Huh! That stuff Is
id better than blown lnegnr!"
Drewmaster Ordered Out,
At this the two noblemen bccnnio
uglily cniaged and ordered the brew-
master to come before them fortliwlth.
Tney berated him fiercely for having
i"t before them a beer, which he con
Biriered his best, but which wns held
to be so Inferior by the knight from
Hrunsvvlck. Thereupon tho brewmas
tcr In mingled tones of humiliation
mil rngc. turned toward the knight.
nnd cried out In a loud tone: "If. at
the expiration of one year from this
liy you will again come to Munich
end bring along a keg of your beer I
vvli'l produce n beer that 111 point of
f.unllty will surely surpass yours.
SI ould I fall In this jour Grace may

nils the Ilrunsvvlcker laughed loud nnd
long, and readily ucqulesccd to appear
at the time mentioned, and, as an dull
r itlon of his good faith, he deposited a
f rfelt of 200 florins.
A Great Day, This.
At last tho day to decide the contest

the couitynid of the castle was beau
