[Quotation] Troopers Dub Continued from page [blank]

"In ancient times, when the Kings of Scotland passed between their palaces of Stirling and Falkland, and when one of the Jameses, on his way, dined and caroused at Tullibole, a drinking match or trial of Bacchanalian strength was got up between one of the Kings troopers and one of the laird of Tullibole's vassals, of the name of Keltie. The trooper having swilled and drank till he became prostrate, Keltie quaffed another draft to proclaim his revolting victory, and fell headlong beside the vanquished; but when he awoke he found that both he and the trooper had been struggling with death, and that the latter had been overcome by the grim foe. Their additional draught, after ther's fall, is Commemorated in the current phrase of Keltie [--] [blot], applied by drunkards to a rejected or hurtful intoxicating draught; and the death of his Bacchanalian antagonist, with its deeply solemn lessons, is commemorated in the name of a little pool, the "Troopers Dub" near which he was buried."
