Would love and pity smother.

A Scotch minister Instructed his
clerk, who sat among the congrega

whistle if anything in her sermon ap
peared to be exaggerated. On hear

there were snakes fifty feet long,"
the clerk gave a subdued whistle. "I
should have said thirty feet." added
the minister. Another whistle from
the clerk. On sonsulting Thompson's

In Crimean times (says the "Tat

ing the plaid as an essential part of
the uniform. When the orderly came
to report the result, the colonel was
scandalized to find that only two of
his men favored the suggestion, "Ami
who are there two gallant Highland
ers?" he asked. "Ooch!" replied tho
orderly, "sure it's Corporal O'Brien
