an Irish laborer toiling in the ditch
on a hot 11111mli's day, and, fetching
the bottle and a glass, refreshed Pat
with a glass of whisky. Pat was ex

it's just to me like inother's milk to
an infant." "But what woUld the
priest say," said the minister, "if he
knew that I was gi-ving you this
drink?" "Begorra, sor," said Pat,
"what would lie say now, but just
this-'Give hin another.'
