A Small Glass

THE manager of a Scotch theatre, at which F.G. Cooke was playing

Macbeth, seeing him greatly exhausted towards the close of the

performance, offered him some whiskey in a very small thistle-glass,

saying at the same time, by way of encouragement, Take that, Mr. Cooke;

take that, sir; it is the real mountain dew; that will never hurt you,

sir!--Not if it was vitriol! was the rejoinder.
