Mu thill, as told by Dean Ramsay, brod is used in the double sense of a goad and an instrument for taking a collection :

" As he went round with the ladle, he reminded such members of the congregation as seemed back- ward in their duty, by giving them a poke with the brod, and making in an audible whisper such remarks as these, ' Wife at the braid mailin, mind the puir'; 'Lass wi' the braw plaid, mind the puir.' "

By about the year 1715 it had become customary in many Scottish churches to have a large black board on which were in- scribed the names of benefactors, and this was known as the legacy brod.

A board for the game of draughts used to be known in Scotland as a dambrod hence the common name, still in use, of the dambrod pattern in articles of napery.

The boards of a book were often called brods, as, for example, in the following quota- tion from a kirk session's records in 1 703 : "For a calf's skinn to be a cover to ye Kirke bible. For dressing ye skinn bought to cover ye Kirke bible, and alm'd leither to fasten ye cover to ye brods."

We read, too, of painted brods paintings on wood. W. S.
