Aki!,vmi;d to Swear Alone.?Why is it
that the most blasphemous oaths arc
always in a crowd? The profane swearer
would not dare to go to his private cham?

Ho trembled. Afraid to take another
step, he fell on his knees and cried,
"God be merciful to me, a sinner."

a young lady by calling her a gentle
lamb, said "She is one mutton as is
