Peck's Bad Boy.
"I don't hear much about your p n
Utely," said the groceryman to the
bad boy, as he showed up one morn
ing before breakfast, to buy a mack
eral. "He is alive, ain't be ? Is he in
politics yet t" and the groceryman
took n small rusty mackerel by the
tail and slapped it against the inside
of the barrel to get the brine off, and
wrapped it in some thick paper, heav*
ier than the fish before bo weighed it.
"Hold on there please," said the boy.
who was watching the proceedings.
"Weigh the maekeral separate, please
and then weigh the pa[er, and charge
the fish to pa and charge the paper to
yourself. That is all right. es, pa
pa is alive, hut ho is hot in politics
He was throwed out of politics, head
first, on two occasions the night bt fore
the election. You see pa is an enthu ]
siast. Some years he is in one party,
ami some years in another : just which ,
party gives him the best show to sake
speeches. lie has got speaking on
the brain, and if he can get up before :
a crowd and say 'feller citizens,' and
not get hit with a piece of brick '
house, that is a picnic for pa. 'I his
spring ho went with the temperance
and saloon people. You know the f
temperencc people and the saloon peo
ple sort of united on a candidate, and
pa was red hot. He wanted to speak.
The fellows showed pa that he had got
to be careful and not gel mixed, and
they turned him loose to speak. The ;
night before election pa went in a hal|
where there was to be a meeting, and
he got up and said what the people
wanted was the highest possible license,
enough to drive out half the saloons. J
He was just going to demonstrate wha'
a blessing it would be if there was on
ly oue saloon, when someone took him
by the neck and threw him through
a window. It seems that it was a
meeting of people who were opposed i
to any license, and who believed ev
erybody should he allowed to sell liq- ■
uor for nothing. A policeman picked
pa up and took the window sash off'
from over bis neck, and picked the
broken glass out of his vest and pants, I
and walked him arouud, and told him
of his mistake, and pa admitted that
what the people wanted was free trade
in whisky. He said now that he
thought of it there was no justice in
making people pay for the privilege o'
engaging in commercial pursuits, and
if the policeman would take him hack
to the ball, he thought he could set
himself right before the assembly.
Well, the policeman is the meanest ;
man in this town. He took pa to an
other hall, around the block, where
there was a meeting of the high li
cense people, and he went in, thinking
it was the one he was in first. He was
kind of surprised that they did not
attack him, hut they were busy sign
ing a petition for high license. Pa
waited a minute, to think up some,
thing to say, and then he got up on a
chair and said, '.Mr. Chairman, this is
matter we are all interested in, and
the humblest citizen may speak. Af
ter studying this matter thoroughly
lokking at it in all its bearings, and
summing up an experience of forty
years, I have come to the conclusion
that the city should not grant my li
cense at all.' That tickled thccrawd,
'cause they thought pa was in favor of
stopping the sale of liquor altogether, !
and they cheered him. Pa got hi*
second wind and continued : 'As loog
a liquor is recognized as an article of
commerce, like sugar and meat, and
soap, every man should be allowed to
sell it without any license at all. \AI
everybody lc free to sell liquor, and
we shall —' Pa didn't get any farth- i
er. Somebody throwed a wooden wa
ter bucket at his head, his chair wa 4
knocked out from under him, and scv.
eral men took him by the collar and
pant* and be went through another
window. The policeman met pa as
he came out the window, and a-ke I
him if he didn't find it congenial in
there, and pa said it was too darned
congenial. He said it seemed as ,
though there were no suiting some
people, and he asked the policeman to
take him home. They passed a hall
where there was another meeting, and
the policeman asked pa if he didn't
think he had better go ia and try it
again, but pa went on the other side
oa the street. He said if he wanted
to go through any more windows be
ceuld jump through them himself, as
he knows better which sad first he lik-
Ed to go through windows, and in
thought oue muu better than six when
, it couips to making an exit from i
B public hall. 1 noticed pa earnc bono
early that night, and he sat thinking
a good deal, and I asked him if any
thing had happened and he roused u|
1 and said, 'Hennery, a little advict
from an old man will not hurt you
' Whatever you do, when you arrive ui
> man'* estate, don't ever go into poli
I tics and become a speaker. If you
are a public speaker, you will never
know how to take your audience, or
how your audicnco will take you
They may take you by the baud ami
welcome you, and they may take you
by the neck and fire you out of a win.
dow. ou can tell how to go into u
hall, hut you never tell how you will
come out. Keep out of politics and
don't he a speaker. If you have any-
thing to say, he an editor, and write it,
ami then if people kick on what you
say, you can go and hide, or if they
l come to you you can fire them out. I
' often thought you would make a good
editor of a jm.l iti<al pupcr, though
you would have to learn to lie, 1 aiu
nlraid.' () pa has had enough of poli.
tics, and I guess ho will not vote this
| year. Well, I must go witn this
l mackerel, or we wont have any break
fast, " and the hoy went out carryirg
the fish by the tail and rattling it
! against the pickets of a fence to make
it tender.— l'eck'n Sun.
