A good report.

--A story is told that a Lieutenant was promenading in uniform one day and approached a sentry, who challenged him "Halt! who comes there?" The officer, with contempt in every lineament of his face, indignantly exclaimed "Ass!" The guard quickly replied, "Advance Ass, and give the countersign."--Carion.
