members of the family and the do
mestios. This state of things was
often a nuisance ; but the old ser
vant, however troublesome and in
efficient, was so thoroughly rooted
in the households of past days that
there was scarce a possibility of
getting rid of him. A Mr. Erskine,
of Dun, had long groaned under the
impertinence of one of those re
tainers, and had almost determined
to bear it no longer, when walking
out with his man, upon crossing a
field the mastor exclaimed, "Thero's
a hare." Looking at the place,
Andrew said, coolly, "What a big
lee, it's a caut." Quito angry now,
Mr. Erskine plainly told the old
domestic that they must part. But
the tried servant of forty years, un..
ablo to conceive the possibility of
his dismissal, innocently, asked "Aye,
sir, whare are ye gaun ? I'm sure ye
are aye best at haie." This auec
doto is paralleled by the instance of
a coachman, long in the service of a
noble lady, who fairly gave him
notice to quit, and bade him
go at once. The only satisfac
tion she got was the quiet an
swer, "Na, na, my lady ; I
druve ye to your marriage, and I
shall stay to drive you to your bu
rial." The cool assurance with
which these old domestics look upon
themselves to protect family inter
ests sometimes led to ludicrous ex
hibitions. While a Mrs. Murray of
Abercairney was dining at a friend's
house, one of the family noticed
that she was looking for the propor
spoon to help hersolf with salt.
The old servant, Thomas, was mo.
tioned to, but he would not notice
the appeal. It was repeated in a
more peremptory manner: "Thom
as, Mrs. Murray has not a salt
spoon," to which he replied most < m
phatically, "Last timo Mrs. Murray
dined here we lost a salt spoon."
One more story, to exhibit the ready
wit observed among Scotch servants.
A baby was out with the nurse, who
walked it up and down a garden. ".Is
it a laddie or a lassie 9" said the
gardner. "A laddie," said the maid.
"Weel." says he, "I,m glad o'
that, for there's owor mony wvomen
in the world." "Hee, man," said
Jes, 1"div ye no ken there's aye
mais sawn o' the best crap ?"
Some of the most curious of Dean
Ramsay's recollections relate to the
convivial habits which obtained in
Scottish society fifty years back.
In those days, no one was allowed
to shirk his liquor, no heel-taps
were permitted, and glasses had
the stems knocked off so that no
shuffling tricks might be played
with them, and that they could only
be put down empty. A Tird of the
~ old school expressed himself with
indignation at 'the charge brought
against hard drihking, that it it hias
actually killed people. "Na, na," lie
protestod, "I never knew anybody
~killed wi' drinkid4, but I hae ken
some that died in the training."
We are assured by the author that
an accompished and worthy gentle
woman actually took pains to culti-.
A vats habits of drinking in her sons,
holding that all young men should
be trained to carry liquor discreetly.
Accordingly, she dadly put before
the young laird a certain quan~
tity of wine, which he was obliged
to swallow, whether he would or no.
This calls to mind the similar prac -
tice half a century ago in Ireland, by
which fathers used to tell their sons

TOTAL ABSTINENCE SAVINGI WINE TILL It
There is a curious story about some native
wines wvhich are extensively advcrtised nowa
days, and have only recently been put upon
the market. Dr. Unmderhill, the well-knmown
gape-grower of Croton Point, died in 187r.
..ome oflhis heirs entertained temfperance
views of such extreme kind, that they were
unwilling to allow the stock of wines then on
hand to be sold or any more to be madc.
The grapes have sometimes becen sent to
market, and sometimes left to decay upon
the vines. It is only now that the other heirs
have succeeded in arrngping for a settiement
of the estate nnd the sale of the wines on
hand. Ameng these is a wine of thc vintage
of 1864, describe d as a " Sweet Union P'ort,"
but suggesti'ng the Imperial Tokay more
than any other Europecan wine, and being
wholly unlike any other wine of Amnerican
growth. Its purity, age and mellowness are
remarkable, and both physicians and wine
fanciers have a specil Interest in it as the
oldest native wine now accessible in any con
siderable quantity. The whole stock is in the
hands of' the well-known wholesale grocery
house of the Trhurbers.-N. Y. Tr~Iu,s
Nov. 19t, &27.
The above speaks for itself, but we would
add That this is the pure juice of the grape,
neither drtagTed, iguored nor waternf; that it
has been ripened and mellowed by age, and
for medicinal eor sacramental purposes It is
unsurpassed. It can be obtained from most
of the leadIng Druggists throughout the
United States, and at wholesale from the
undersigned, who will forward descriptive
pamphlet, free of charge, on application.
