offended priest, liow dare you insult me and my lioly
])rofession in such a manner? Eeturn the watch instantly
to the owner. — I have already offered to restore it, and
lie has refused, therefore 1 beseech you to take it. —
Cease to insult me, said the abbé, you should have offered
it again. — I have done so, replied the thief, and he
declares he will not receive it. — In that case, said the
lioly father, 1 can absolve you; but I strictly enjoin you
not to commit any more thefts. — Soon after the departure
of the penitent, the curate discovered that his own watch
had been stolen from a hook where he was accustomed to
hang it; and he then perceived that the thief had offered
it to him, but he had refused to accept it.
Virtue in hmhle Life.
During a campaign in Germany, in 1760 (seventeen
liundred and sixty), an officer, who was out with a foraging
party and could not find any corn, saw a cottage at some
distance; he approached, and having knocked at the door,
an old man, with a white beard came out and asked what
lie wanted. — Can you, said the officer, show us where
we can find some forage for our cavalry? — Yes, replied
the cottager, if you will wait a few minutes I will conduct
you. — They set off, and in about a quarter of an hour
arrived at a field of corn, which the officer perceiving,
said: "This is exactly the thing for us." — Come a little
farther, said the old man, and I will show you some
better. — He then led them to a field of oats where they
immediately filled their sacks; but the officer said to the
old man, Why did you bring us so far? the other field
of corn is better than this. — It is true, replied the
honest cottagcr, but that does not belong to me, and this
does. — You are a truly honest man, said the officer;
and I will take care that you shall be paid for the oats,
we have taken.
