ZEAL, n. A certain nervous disorder afflicting the young and inexperienced. A passion that goeth before a sprawl.   When Zeal sought Gratitude for his reward  He went away exclaiming: 'O my Lord!'  'What do you want?' the Lord asked, bending down.  'An ointment for my cracked and bleeding crown.'                Jum Coople. -Ambrose Bierce
