Courting. --Dr. Brown, of Hadington, the author of the "Self Inspecting Dictionary," was so youthful that his courtship lasted seven years.--After six years and one-half year, he summoned all his courage for the deed: "Janet," said he, as they sat one night in solemn , "we've been acquainted now for six years and meir, and, I've ne'er gotten a kiss yet; d-ye think I might take one, in a bonnie girl"--"Just as you like, John, only be becoming wi' it." "Surely, Janet, we'll ask a blessnk I might take one, in a bonnie girl"--"Just as you like, John, only be becoming wi' it." "Surely, Janet, we'll ask a blessing." The blessing was asked, the kiss was taken, and the worthy divine, perfectly overpowered by the blissful sensation, most rapturously exclaimed, "Oh, woman! that it is rude, let's return thanks" Six months made the pious couple man and wife, and, added his descendant, who humorously told the tale, a happier couple never spent a longer and more useful life together.
