Then the whining school-boy, with his satchel,
And shining morning face, creeping like snail
Unwillingly to school.

To see the virgin mind her book,
Was but the master’s secret joy
In school to hear the finest boy.

Swift.—Cadenus and Vanessa, Line 550.

SCORN.—But, alas! to make me
The fixed figure for the time of scorn,
To point his slow and moving finger at.

Shakespeare.—Othello, Act IV. Scene 2. (The Moor to Desdemona.)

SCOTLAND.—Stands Scotland where it did?

Shakespeare.—Macbeth, Act IV. Scene 3. (Macduff to Rosse.)

Burns.—Cotter’s Saturday Night, Verse 19.

SCOTLAND.—O Scotia! my dear, my native soil!
For whom my warmest wish to Heaven is sent!
Long may thy hardy sons of rustic toil
Be blest with health, and peace, and sweet content!

Burns.—Cotter’s Saturday Night, Verse 20.
