THE RITUALIST PRIEST AND THE ASS


A RITUALIST PRIEST meeting an ass, thus accosted her—” How durst thou presume to wear the sign. of the holy rood, seeing that thou art an unbaptized and unregenerate ass?”
 The meek-spirited beast replied—”Brother! God placed the cross on my back but I know not who placed it on thine.”
 Moral.—Self-imposed crosses occasion arrogancy.

FREDERICK JAMES BROWN.
