A Choice Wind.

Dean Ramsay, in his "Reminiscences of Scottish Life and Character," relates this incident :— In one of our northern counties, a rural district had its harvest operations seriously affected by continuous rains. The crops being much laid, wind was desired in order to restore them to a condition sit for the sickle. A minister, in his Sabbath services, expressed their wants in prayer as follows:— "O Lord, we pray thee to send us wind, no a rantin', tantin', tearin' wind, but a noohin' (noughin ?) soughin', winnin' wind."
