A Sheepish Compliment

LORD COCKBURN, the proprietor of Bonaly, was sitting on the hillside

with a shepherd, and, observing the sheep reposing in the coldest

situation, he remarked to him, John, if I were a sheep, I would lie on

the other side of the hill. The shepherd answered, Ah, my lord, but if

ye had been a sheep ye would hae had mair sense.
