Some Quaint Examples of That Coun
From Vie Leeds Mercury.
I do not think the people of Yorkshire are
ts remarkable for wit as they are for quaint,
dry humor; and this latter is generally of a
very grim sort. In an essay on the “York
shire Dialect,” in Nugea Literaria, the Rev.
Richard Winter Hamilton writes:
“A week had scarcely elapsed since my
arrival (in Leeds) before I determined on an
excursion to the Moravian settlement at
Fulneck. Ignorant of the way I spoke to a lad
%vho was breaking stones by the side of the
road, in a common but unmeaning manner,
‘Where does this road go to?’ With con
tempt on his face at what he thought a
foolish question, he, halt with the air of a
chum and half that of a rogue, said:
“Go, nowhere; I have kawn it for more
nor ten year, and it nivver stirred yet’
“A little out of countenance, but not out
of temper I said:
“ ‘Whither shall I get to if I drive along
“ ‘To Pudsey, sure; follow thee nose, an
aws as plain as a pikestaff.’
“Thinks I myself, if such be the cub,
what must they be who whelped him? If
such be the eaglet, little more than callow,
what is the region of his sires?”
Later on, on the same day, when he sat
down to his dinner in a humble cottage, the
worthy dame, wishing him to say grace,
“We are all ready, will ye start us?”
He then received tne difficult direction, to
“make himself agreeable.” They afterward
asked him to “ranch to, and bide no invit
ing.” He decided that so far as he was con
cealed, for the time, it was a hopeless case.
But he loved all this when he had learned
more of the people.
A gentleman walking in Sheffield found a
poor boy crying most bitterly.
“What are you crying about,” he in
“All ray brothers and sisters can say what
they like to father, bud if I say aught, it’s
poison. I nobbud called father an old ewe
face, an’ he knocked ma danna into’t ass
hoyi, arnongt’ cowks. Egoyl If me an’
my brothers doan’t mind, father will soonin
bet’ maister on us.”
Here the word nobbud occurs: Chaucer,
in his “Wife of Bath,” has—
But that I pray to all this company
If that I speak after my fancy.
As taketh no agrefe of that I say,
For mine intent is not but to pay.
That is nothing but.
Tho following story was commonly told
when I was a lad. A certain young lass in
Horton was very sick, and supposed likely to
rlie. Soon all her relatives and some neigh
bors gathered round her bed, and one of
them asked her if she had anything on her
mind or anything she would like to say be
fore she departed. Raising herself upon the
bed, and looking round on them all, she
“There is only one thing that has troubled
me. anil I have always been very unhappy
ahout it. and that is that I did not eat more
plum pudding that day aar Sal were wed.”
I have always had the impression that she
got better, and did not die at that time.
In the village of Clayton, near Brad
ford. there formerly dvelt a man named
Nathan Bently, who was an inveterate wag.
In the same village there lived an old
Peninsula veteran who eked out his small
tension by hand loom weaving. He lived in
j. cellar dwelling, under what is now, I be
lieve, the Crown Inn. This old man used to
lioast that no man could come over him or
ii ap him, so Nathan resolved to try what
.vitJd be done to lower him down a peg.
"ow, Nathan went every day to Bradford
with milk in the morning, and one day he
noticed that there was a good-sized pool in
the road in front of the dwelling of Hains
worth, the old soldier. On returning about
noon he stopped the horse and cart at the
spot, and began to fumble in his pockets;
and finally he sent the horse home with the
cart, alone. He then knelt down by the side
of the muddy pool, and, doubling up his shirt
sleeves, began groping in the mud with his
right hand. Hainsworth saw this and his
curiosity was excited. Then leaving his
loom, he went up to Nathan and asked him
what he was looking for. Nathan told him
he was looking for a sovereign and begged
Hainsworth to help him to find it. He then
searched for about twenty minutes in the
muddy water* with Nathan on the other
side, until a large crowd had gathered
round them, a thing easily managed in a
village. At length Hainsworth said:
“Nathan, where abaats did ta drop thy
“Nay,” Nathan replied, “I’ve noan dropt
no sovereign; I'm nobbud seeking one.”
“Ah! an'nil seek thee, lad, some day.”
But Natlian had run off home as fast as
his legs could carry him. The old soldier
bragged no more after that.
In a village not far from the one last men
tioned, I knew a man called Tootal, and he
used to give out the hymns in the chief
chapel of the place. It was then the cus
tom, before organs and harmoniums were
used in places of religious worship, for the
choir, if there was one, to use the tuning
fork to get the proper pitch for the
tune. On one occasion, when Mr. Tootal
was about to give out the hymn, the proper
pitch was given him, but either through
careless or inattention he failed to respond
properly. The consequence was that after
a short effort the choir came to a full stop.
The leader then turned toward tho pulpit
“John, you have given out the hymn on
the wrong key.”
To which he replied:
“Whether I’ve given it out on tho wrong
key or not, ye’ve gotten into’t lock.”
On another occasion, during the reign of
George IV., a friend of mine entered a cnapel
in the v illage of Allertou, when one of the
deacons was offering up the prayer before
the sermon. After asking that the blessing
of heaven might rest on the then royal
family, he exclaimed:
“Lord bless his present majesty who sits
on the throne of England. Prepare him, I
pray Thee, to wear a crown in neaven, for
that knaws, Lord, at he wor nivver fit ta
wear an earthly one J”
Yorkshiremen are well known for being
plain in their language and this was suf
ficiently so, but quite characteristic of the
West Riding people.
In the same chapel, before they' had a reg
ular choir of singers, it was usual for some
one in the congregation to set the tunes, and
there were always one or two in the con
gregation who could be relied on for that
duty. One Sunday morning the one who
should have struck the tune hod a bad cold.
However, he tried two or threo times to
start tho tune from his place in the gallery,
but failed. He then shouted across the
rhapel to another man who sometimes of
“I say, thee, Jacky Wilkinson, thee set
the tune this morning, I cannot, for I’ve
getton a kittlin e’ me throlt.”
At which the people laughed, as a kit
tling in Yorkshire means a kitten. What
he meant was a tickling.
Before the introduction of instrumental
music into tho Dissenting chapels in the
West Riding, there was great disappoint
ment among the choirs nt its exclusion and
very strong devices were resorted to to mas
ter tho opposition. In the Tetley street
Baptist Church, Bradford, the following de
vice was bit upon: The musical portion of
the congregation anil choir formed them
selves into n hand and bought all the in
struments needed. On these they practiced
until they were all ready for tho attempt,
when they got pomeasion of the key of tho
school, where tnere was uu entrance into
tho chapel. On the Saturday evening all
the instruments were hicl away under the
'eats of the singeiV news, and when the min
irter gave out uie first hymn on Sunday
morning they were all dragged out and the
players played anil the singers sang, and
there was an end of the matter. The boss
viol won the Little, and all opposition in
tlie congregation broke down at once and
the enemies of instrumental harmony
heartily accepted the change.
Every one knows that the men of the
\Veit Riding are keen after money whej
they take that way, A young man, who
had been for some'time courting a young
woman, told his intended father-m-law that
he and Mary thought of “getting wed.”
“I think it’s time you did,” was the re
“ Aye, but how much will ye gie her?”
“I sal give her £1,000.”
“Nay, bud ye’ll gie her more nor that.”
“No, t shall not. Her sisters have £I,OOO
each, an’ she’ll hev’ the same.”
“Ah, bud yd forget that Mary’s the faalest
of the lot.”
He had chosen the plainest of the family,
the ugly duckling, in expectation that her
father would give her a large dowry to get
her off his hands.
Here is another similar anecdote, but it is
a woman this time. Not far from Brad
ford an old couple lived on their farm. The
good man had been ill for some time, when
the doctor who attended him advised that a
physician should be called in from Bradford
for a consultation. The physician came,
looked into the case, gave his opinion and de
scended from the room to the kitchen, and
was there accosted by the old woman with:
“Well, doctor, what’s your charge f ’
“My fee is a guinea!”
‘A guinea, doctor, a guinea! An’ if ye
come agean will it be another guinea?”
“Yes, but 1 shall hardly have to come
again; I have given my opinion and I leave
him in good hands.”
“A guinea, doctor, hey?”
The old woman rose, went upstairs to her
husband and the doctor heard ner say:
“He charged a guinea an’ if he comes
Xui it will be another guinea Now,
t do you say ? If I wereye I’d say ‘No’ like
a Britoner and I’d die first.” This is from
“A Month in Yorkshire,” by Walter White,
This which follows is culled from the
Family Herald: Two horses, a white and
a sorrel, were matched for a race in York
shire. The betting was high on the white,
but the sorrel had its backers. The day be
fore the race it was discovered by the friends
of the white that he was off his feed and
would be in no condition to run. So they
made up a purse and with it bribed the rider
of the sorrel to lose the race and let white
take the lead. To their amazement, how
over, the sorrel horse won the race.
“We are sold, sure as a gun,” said one of
the bribers to the other.
“Did you pay him the money?” asked the
“Yes, I did; and he swore we should
“Bless my soul,” said the other, “is there
no such thing as an honest man left in the
world?” heaving a sigh of vast proportions.
The Villain Relented.
From Texas Siftings.
Some twenty years ago, when John A.
Ellsler was manager of the Academy of
Music in Cleveland, there was a man con
nected with the stock company in the ca
pacity of heavy villain, who, while he was a
good actor, hail an inordinate fondness for
sack, to draw it mildly, which he never did.
We will call him De Budge, which is safer
than to give his real name, for he is living
yet, we think. At least we will give our
selves the benefit of the doubt.
Deßudge was a very tender-hearted man
when full of his name. He would weep
profusely over any tale of woe, no matter
how remote it might be from his own time
and environment. He used to say that he
couldn’t hurt a fly, and he couldn’t, when
the bar keeper put it in his lemonade, as he
generally did. One afternoon when in his
cups De Budge was discovered weeping as
though his heart would break. When asked
the cause he said he was thinking how cruel
it was to make the Egyptians cross the Red
Sea in pursuit of the'lsraelites without first
supplying them with life-preservers.
You can gather from the above what kind
of a heavy villain De Budge was when load
ed to the guards.
One night when the play was “'William
Tell,” De Budge was cast for the tyrant,
Gessler, an equally heavy but more temper
ate villain appearing as the “Hero of Switz
De Budge had been budging pretty heav
ily during the afternoon, and when he came
to his dressing-room to dress for his part it
was observed that he was full. However,
he managed to pull through very well until
they came to the scene where Tell is com
manded to shoot the apple from his child’s
“Ferocious monster!” exclaimed Tell.
“Make a father murder his own child!” De
Budge’s chin began to quiver, but he man
aged to stammer:
“D —d—does he consent ?”
Tell —“With his own hand! Murder his
child with his own hand!”
De Budge’s eyes filled with tears, and it
was evident to those who knew him that he
would soon begin to blubber.
Tell —The hand I’ve led him when an in
fant boy! ’Tis too much for flesh and blood
“Thash sho,” blubbered De Budge. “Don’
shoot, Tell, don’ shoot! I know jish how
The prompter cursed at tho wing and
tried to set him right, but Tell, hoping that
the paroxysm would pass over, went right
on with his part:
“Sir, have you no children?”
This gave the finishing blow to De Budge.
“Yes, I have. Bill—two splen’ boys! I
love’m—hie —like er life’s blood. Don’
sk —sh —hie—oot, Bill, don’ sh—oot!”
And he stumbled forward, attempting to
throw himself into Tell’s arms, that he
might weep upon his breast.
It is hardly necessary to add that De Budge
was seized and dragged off R. U. E.. and
the curtain rung down.
