The Anecdotage of Glasgow
A Glasgow Rev. Doctor and a tipsy man in a tramway car

A TIPSY man one day got into a tramway car in Glasgow, and became very troublesome to the other passengers, who were so much annoyed that it was proposed to eject him.

Before leaving, however, he looked around with a scowl of contempt upon, and muttered some angry words with regard to the other passengers; but shook hands warmly with the reverend doctor, to whom he paid a rather left-handed compliment in his parting words:

"Good-day, my friend; I see you ken what it is to be drunk !"
