PECK'S BAD BOY.
"Well, I novcr sec a boy change
as yon linvo," said tlio grocery man
to tho bad boy, ns lio catno in with
a poor dirty looking trump, nncl
bought him u pound of crackcis and
a big picco of cheese, and as the
tramp sat down on a soap box and
beiran to go through tlio fodder as
though it was a banquet, and the
boy looked out of the window at the
ruin that was falling, the grocery
man added, "What has got into,
you? You haven't got religion have
"Naw, 1 guess not," said the boy,
as he slyed a picklo out of a bartcl
to the trump. "That is, T haven't got
it by any regular rule, but may be
it is in my system. I tell you, old
oleomargerine, I have always been
in for fun, and haven't cared much
how I had it, but lately I have hud
moiofun making people happy, than
I over had making pa jump around.
Don't you know, if you see a person
who's in hard luck, and .thinks the
world is all a fraud, and who almost
wants to bo run over by a fi eight
train, and you go to work and sur
prise the person with a bit of kind
ncss, smuggle a warm meal down
him before he knows it, it makes
your heart feel as though you hud
got to loosen your belt? I never
knew there was so much suffering in
the world until that humane society
fellow hired mo to go around with
him to hold his horse while he re
lieved distress, but the woods are
full of people who have no drawers
to wear in winter, and who would
faint away at sight of a roast of beef.
Gosh, I wish I had a million
"O, what would you do with a
million dollars?" asked the grocery
man, as he watched the tramp pick
his teeth with a sliver off the soap
box. "If you had-a million dollars
you would buy a dude suit of clothes,
and a trotting wagon with red
wheels, and a norse that could trot
in two ten. And you would part
your hair in the middle and wear
yellow gloves and say 'g-lang.'
That's the kind of a millionaiie you
"No, sir I You aie no guesser,"
said the bov, as he gave the tramp
a glass of cider- "1 would buy oiu
a bakery and a meat market, and
when poor people hadn't anything to
eat I would invite ihem to call on
Hennery. Then I would take a
hundred thousand dollars and go
mound paying a month's rent in
advance for people. If some peo
ple knew they would not be both
ered about paying rent for a month,
they would be so happy they would
ache. Then I would buy ten thou
sand pairs of red flannel drawers,
regular old thick ones, all sizes, and
sell them to poor people and take
their notes' for the pay. You see
some people wouldn't like to have
drawers given to them, but if you
took their notes they would feel as
though they bought the drawers, and
then you could have a boufire and
burn up the notes. But I had rather
bo able to work miracles than be a
millionaire. If I could take stones
and turn them into leaves of bread,
and water into wine, the way Christ
did, I would set up business at a
stone quary and open a free bakery,
and I would take the Milwaukee
river and make it into wine and tell
the poor people to help themselves.
It would make the breweries sick,
but they could ship their beer to
Texas and Colorado. 1 tell you,
what tins country needs is a fellow
that can make a bakery out of a
stone quarry by a simple turn of tlio
wrist, and 1 had rather have such a
job than to be president. If I could
turn hard hcuds into bread it would
be a picnic. 1 would take a big
bto'no and go to the home of a pooi
woman who had nothing to eat in
tho house and tell her I had brought
her some bread, and I would hand
her astono as big as a peck measure,
and she would see it was a stone,
and the tears would como to her
eyes, and. sho would look borry be
cause I was so mean, and then while
sho was wiping her eyes on the un
der side of her apron I would touch
tlio stono with my magio wand, and
turn it into a loaf of salt rising brcud,
or brown bread, with a nuiisard 1001
on, and tho look the poor woman
would give mo, when sin found the
stono wiw brcud, would bo worth a
thousand dollurs, and I would go
away feeling pretty cunning. I
bhould want to bo able to turn cord
wood into canvass hams, too."
"Yes, that is all right for talk, but
you ain't no angel, yet," said tho
