There is a Beautiful scotch Ballad,6y this title that 1 lever saw bul once in my life built made a very Strung impress Ion on me. As the Ballad is not to be found i will Endeavor to Tell the Story in Plain prose. The Liard Oflinn in Galway was one of the richest landed proprietors in Scotland. Besides his lands and dwellings he had flock Sand herds and a Good Etore of Gold. Moreover hew Risa Man of frugal and parsimonious disposition 80 that the gentlemen of Galway avoided his company and the whole icon retry Side cried shame of him. Nevertheless his riches grew and increased to a mighty sum and there was no telling what a a a is of treasure he had snugly concealed. Quot the Laird a Flynn did not marry till late Iri life arid his wife died within a yeat after their marriage she left hit one child i son who was Tho Joy and plague of his existence. Though naturally of Noble Ana generous1 temper a tips wild reckless and extravagant. A seeing and hearing Bis father Ridick Jed every Day for his miserly temper nod Babits he resolved Rit ail eve eats Riotto be like Hiro and spent All he could Lay. His bands upon among Low and dissolute compaction id drinking Rind.1 riotous living a so True is. It. That one extreme often reduces another. 1 was in vain that his father remonstrate with him be Only grew worse and worse As he a grew older and thelaird of Lim Lay on Bis death bed. He Hadout Livel All his near a relations and be bad no for ends so Tufit he was in a manner oblige 1 to leave ill Bis substance to Bis sop and besides next to Bis Gold be loved his prodigal heir. Previous to his Deab he called the heir of Linn to Bis led Side and spake thus to him a my son when my lips Are Coldin death and my Tongue silent in the grave castors. And All 1 have got together in dissipation and extravagance. Nevertheless do not wish my son to live a beggar. Therefore give heed to my Only dying command and if you disregard it May a fathers curse cling to Jou. You know the upper chamber of my House in Kipple Ungar. It Isnow locked up and. I have thrown the key . have isl both Gold and land when you have not a Friend who will lend Youa Hawber and when you Are actually suffering for a crust Tori please your hunger break the door open and you will Fiad a certain Relief but if you open the room before that time i say ago in May a fathers curse cling to you a a with these words the old Man fell Back on his Pillow and died. The heir of Linn did not Grieve Long for his Parent. He soon threw open his House to All Comers. His forests fell by peach thence his chimneys were always smoking a Hundred men Sal daily at his Board and he bought him horses and hounds and Lent Money without counting to his dissolute he be aisted and drank and gamed and if he could not gel rid of his substance fast enough in All these ways he took Noc Arfe of , but gave up the guidance of them to a Bailiff or Steward named John of the Scales who was a Knave und a notorious usurer. John cheated his master in various ways and put More than half his rents and moneys into his own pocket. A Ai last what the heir of Linn a father had foreseen came to pass. His Money was All gone and he had no Means of keeping up his excesses except by Selling lands but there was no one Rich enough to buy them except John of the Scales and every one knew How lie Catete by his Money. I he Young Laud Vas in desperate want of Cash to his gaining debts und was moreover heated with wine when his unjust sle Waid offered to but his estate.1 it was a hard c Case but after much reluctance he agreed upon the bargain. A give me your a a old Good John of the Scales and my lands shall be yours forever,1 said the heir of Linn. Then John counted Down the Good yellow Gold and a hard bargain his master had for it. For every Pound that John gave the land was Well Worth three. The last Money went like the first and the heir of Linn was a beggar. He first went to the Bouse that had once been his own but there Ivas no feasting going on in fire was out the dinner table was , and All was desolate and a a Smul. A Here a sorry cheer a said the heir of Linn. John would not give him a Penny but told him to go to the friends he Hod spent his Money upon foolishly. He did so but it Good. Some oath crib pretended. Not to know him and not one would and him a Farthing or even offer him a dinner. So he wandered about forlorn and hungry fur two Days for work he could not and to beg be rvs ashamed. Al last in extreme mis pry he Bethought himself of his fathers dying words. A i have not sold the old House in Kipple Pringar yet a a for no one will buy it. A will go and break open the upper my father told me i should Iod Relief there and perhaps he meant it should proves i will be a Wier and belter Man than i was and not a Jaste it upon to the House he went then anti broke open the chamber door. He found Relief indeed. There was not up and read ill a Alt Grac. Only Relief fur ing in the room excepting a High Stool and Dizig Coly o apr it a Halter hanging from a Hook if the ceiling. He looked Ese words l is wretch and Wanton fool you Are Stiim d forever. This is file those who waste their a in Havedon. Behold then i know How a twill be with you. A you j Pul he rope ground your neck jump will spend All the eur Stanet of your an j from the Stool land save your family the disgrace of ending a beggar. A a very excellent counsel,1 said the heir a find of i mriss a i their hang or Sta we a Thirsk ill take my fathers advice1 Rind hang. It is the shortest death of the so he mounted fastened the Halter round his neck and kicked the Stool from under hit. But Tho heir of Linn was not to die so. The Board in which the Hook was driven gave Way with his weight and he fell to the floor with a she wer of Gold Coin Aboul his ears. I will not say that he Felt no pain in his neck the next Day Bill at the moment Heck a mainly Felt none. Joy rushed to his heart lib a torrent at Riesing himself rescued from death and Beggary. The space Between the ceiling and roof contained an enormous treasure on the upper Side of the Board from which he had thought to hang himself,.ivas fastened a letter addressed to him. He hastily Tore it open arid read us dear son�?1 know your character and that no expostulation or advice can warn Yori from Ellie desperate courses you Are pursuing. Nothing but misery sharper than Feath can cure you. A if therefore your misfortunes and sufferings should by so grievous that Vou Pacler death to enduring them i have some hop that of will not rashly encounter them Nairi. You have Nade the trial take my Jolil redeem your land become a Wise and better the heir of Linn did not leave the spot without putting up a prayer la heaven for the soul of the Parent whose admirable Wisdom bad discovered a Means of raising him from Beggary and despair to affluence and of weaning him irom the follies and vices which had disgraced his character. To evince his gratitude he resolved to mind Bis life a re in Ihu via v for nid aed Becotte All a fathers heart could wish. But first lie thought lie would make one More trial of his false j friends on whom he had wasted his ,.his substance and his character. He therefore kept his newly discovered wealth a Secrel till he Beard that John of the Scales was going to give a great and that All the lords and ladies in Galway would be there. When the heir of Linn entered his Fol Here Shalt it was crowded with richly dressed gentlemen but a was in beggars rags. He appealed to the Charity of the company saying that he was starving. To Ione he said Yoa have feasted at my Board a thousand times will you now Derby me the crumbs that fall from your own?1 a Tolu nothern to gave you a fair Steed and trappings a to the thjrd�?1 Lent you a thousand pounds and never asked you to repay me a and so on to All the rest of the but instead of remembering his favors they reviled him and called him spendthrift b9ggar, All manner of vile names. Some said it was a shame that such a wretched object should be suffered to them Rind one to whom More than All the rest his purse had always been open Allrid on his servants to thrust him out of doors. But one took his part. If was or. Richard Lackland a poor younger son of a wealthy gentleman. He stood up and said �?~1 never ate at the Board of the heir of Linn i never Rode his horses or shared his purse or received favors of him to the value of a tabbing. But what then he Susa worthy gentle if Ian when he had the Means. 1 have twelve Gold Nobles and that is All i own in tie world and Here Are eix of them us the service of the Man Vav Hose hand was never shut to the poor and As 1 us a gentleman no one shrill Lay hands on him while i Wear a a glad Man was the heir of l no to find one Man worthy in be his Friend. He Jook the six Nobles and advanced towards Scales who was standing at the end of the Ball attired Jin gorgeous apparel a a you at Lea?,1 said the heir of Linn a ought o relieve Iny necessities for you Are growing Rich on my ruins and i gave you a Good bargain of my lands.1. Then John of the Scales began to Fri vile Bim and to decl re that he had Given much a Norire for the lands than they were Worth for his extortion before so much goodly company. A nay a nay said he to the heir of Linn a if you will but return Tome the half of what i paid for your father s estates you shall have it Bock again.�?T. A perhaps i May fire Jfe a has who will lend me the sum said the heir of Linn. A therefore give me a Promise under your hand and Seal and 1 will see what can be Dorte John of the Scales knew that few peo pie in the country had so much Money even if it were n common thing to amp lend Money Toa beggar and he had just seen what Reliance is to be placed on friends in such i Case. He had not the least idea that the heir of Linn would Ever possess a Hundredth part of the Sun. He therefore called for pen Ink and paper and sat Down before the company and wrote the Promise and right Scop finely gave it to his former master. Then the heir of Linn strode to the window and opened it and took a Bugle from under his tattered Gaberdine and Blower till Tho joists and rafters Shook with the Din. Presently a fair troop of servants Rode up Well armed and mounted leading a mule with thai Tjaden with treasure. They dismounted and brought the Gold in the Hall. A my fathers land is my own again cried the heir of Linn joyously and before the company bad recovered from their astonishment he counted out to John of amp a Scales the Sura he had just agreed to take. Then his servants be said Scourge the Viper out of the House of Linn with dog and it was done. The company then crowded around him congratulating him on recovering his Patrimony and excusing their own neglect and ingratitude. He said to them. A Caitiff slaves dogs begone pollute the Fri roof my House no longer. If be enter my grounds regain will Bave the servants Loose the hounds upon you a Quot 1 to master Lackland he said a come to my arms come Ito my heart my Friend my brother live in my House arid share with the heir of lion in All things.

He would keep Pace with the Kings Chariot in a car drawn by barn door fowls. He also amused the King s guests As they sat at table by causing when they stretched out their hands Zitto.
