An liin. keeper close by, who had frequently en

tracted many traveler! to his house by puttiug
up tbe sign of the Cock. The landlord with tbe
new sign was much discomilted at seeing many
of bis old customer! deposited at his rival's esta

Isige, red letters, under the iiortiait of the
bishop, "Ibis is tbe old Cock."
