Clear The Court





AN Irish crier at Ballinasloe being ordered to clear the court, did so

by this announcement: Now, then, all ye blackguards that isn't

lawyers, must lave the coort.





DLI--SCOTCH CAUTION.



AN old shoemaker in Glasgow was sitting by the bedside of his wife, who

was dying. She took him by the hand. Weel, John, we're gawin to part. I

hae been a gude wife to you, John.--O, just middling, just middling,

Jenny, said John, not disposed to commit himself. John, says she, ye

maun promise to bury me in the auld kirk-yard at Stra'von beside my

mither. I couldna rest in peace among unco folk, in the dirt and smoke

o' Glasgow.--Weel, weel, Jenny, my woman, said John soothingly,

we'll just pit you in the Gorbals first, and gin ye dinna lie quiet,

we'll try you sine in Stra'von.
