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 I 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.
