A man applied to the college for a
coat of arms and was asked If any of
his ancestors had been renowned for
any singular achievement. The mau
paused and considered, but could recol
lect nothing.
“Your father?” said the herald, aiding
his memory. “Your grandfather? Your
great-gra ml fa t her?”
“No.” returned the applicant. “I nev
er knew that I had a great-grandfa
ther or a gra ml fa tiler.”
“Of yourself?” asked this creator of
dignity.
*1 know nothing remarkable of my
self.” returned the man, “only that be
ing once locked up In Ludgate prison
for debt I found means to escape from
an upper window, and that, you know,
is no honor in a man’s scutcheon.”
“And how did you get down?” said
the herald.
“Odd enough,” retorted the man. “1
procured a cord, fixed it round the
neck of the statue of King Lud. on the
outside of the building, and thus let
myself down.”
“I have it.” said the herald. "No hon
or! Lineally descended from King
Lud. and his coat of arms will do for
Sou.”
