The Anecdotage of Glasgow
Robert Kettle on the wrang side o' the head for tracts

THE late Robert Kettle, Esq., manufacturer, Glasgow, who was a warm advocate of temperance, or rather of total abstinence from all intoxicating, liquors, left a few tracts, advocating such principles, with a young lady friend. Calling at the same house a few days afterwards, he was rather disconcerted at observing the tracts doing duty as curl-papers on the head of the fair damsel to whom he had given them.

"Weel, my lassie," he remarked, "I see you have made use of the tracts I left with ye; but," he added, in time to turn confusion into merriment, "ye have put them on the wrang side of your head, my woman."
