NAT LASKAM) HIS PAEBOT
A Remarkable Story of a Re
markable Man and a Bird.
"Ever hear of Nat Lask's par
rot?" asked Jim Gordon of Little
Rock. "Never was snch a remark
able parrotj'I don't think. Bnt
then^Nat Lask was somewhat of
a remarkable man. He was an old
Arkansas and Mississippi river
boatman. Ho nsed to run between
Little Rock and New Orleans in
* the good old .times before the war,,
He owned twenty niggers once, and
they all got their freedom just be
cause Nat was such a remarkable
man. There was a good many nig
gers running away about that time,
and making their run for good.
Nat gave it but that he'd like to
see any of his get away. For every
one that got away, he said he'd set
another one free. Less than a week
after that one of Nat's best nig
gers turned up missing, and he
couldn't be found. Over the bor
der," sure. The runaway's wife be
longed to Nat.
""Suss," said Nat, 'd'ye know
whar Joe is?' j>
" * Yes, massa.'
" 'Wall then you jes' go long an'
"So he kept his word and set one
slave free because another had suc
?-4?sfzlad^j? running away, and h?
showed what a remarkable man-he
" wits by felting free the wif?-of th?
fugitive. And Nat wouldn't lake
. back his oiler either, and his nig
gers kept running away, ?nd^he
kept setting others free to match
'em, until he hadn't one left.*
'"Don't make no diffnee,' Nat
used to~ say. 'Nobody didn't
'Weege me to sot my niggers
free. But's a time comm', mahk
my wuds, when all yore niggers'll
be sot free, an' yo' won't have
nothin: to say 'bout it, neither.' .
"That was pretty stiff talk for
Arkansas, two years bet?re the
war, and a less remarkable man
than Nat Lask would have been
hauled up short for it. Prophetic,
Nat was, wasn't he? Somewhats
"Just about the time the, war
broke out Nat was in New Orleans
taking on cargo. On the levee one
day he was passing an old woman
- -who was selling parrots, when one
of the birds yelled out :
"That fetched "Nat up standing,
and he asked the woman which
parrot had addressed him in such
^ u 'He knows me,' said Nat, 'but
I swar I never knowed him !'
"Nat didn't have to wait for the
old woman to tell him which par
rot it was, for the bird yelled out
its compliments to him again on
the spot, and Nat was so tickled
with the parrot that he bought it.
He was Bp taken up with his new
companion that he paid no atten
tion to anything else all the way
back on the "trip to Little Rock.
When he arrived there he gave up
" 'Groin' to quit boatin',' he said,
'It'll take all my time now on to
'tend to this parrot.'
"And j if he. didn't quit, right
there and then, I hope to holler!
He tied himself up to that pariot
and had no time for anything or
anybody. Then the war began to
- stir things^up, and one day Nat
" 'Thar's goin' ter be hell ter pay
'round hyah 'fore long, an' I take
to the woods ! "
"He was as good as his word.
He took his gun and his parrot,
went 'way back into the wilder
ness along Big Mammelee Creek,
and put up a snug log cabin. And
it was there that the parrot came
out strong. The woods were full
of game. Wild turkey, deer, bear,
panther. The creek held plenty of
wild ducks and geese. Nat trained
the parrot to hunt. The bird* got
?so he could give all the calls and
cries ?Tthe wild turkey better
the. wild turkey could itself,
he*never missed getting the
call: or cry in at just the'
time. He found out that a
frwn, or a fawn hidden b;
mother, could summon its mi
or* somev other deer, quickl
where it was by^a plaintive I
imj, and the parrot got onto to
only too quicks He imitated
unearthly screech of tho pai
so ably that Nat used to say
it was nothing out of the com
for Bobby-that was tbe par
name-to call as many as a d
big ?e fellows around the cabi
an evening, and set them al
fighting at once. Bobby cou!
do the quack of a duck or the
ble of a goose to perfection,
he could manipulate those (
so that you would think he w
whole flock of * ducks or geese,
if there were ducks or geese fli
over it was no trick at all for Bo
to let himself loose, just as i
was a dozen or so fowls jabbei
together, and a flying flock, b
ing him going on, would say
themselves: 'These ducks n
have struck good luck down tl
in the creek. Let's drop down ;
get a piece of it.' And when t
had dropped down and near enoi
Nat, hid in the bushes, wo
tumble a half dozen or so bel
they could get on to the way tl
"Bobby liked to hunt wild t
keys best. If there was a turi
within bearing of him, it could
resist that seductive call of 1
and when it came within guns!
and .Nat put a-ball in it, Bobby
came a very fiend in his gloat;
over its death struggles. He woi
fly around the poor bird and lau
and yell like a demon. But if 1
should happen to miss the turi
after Bobby had called it up, th
maybe he would get fits. The p
rot would fill the woods with li
guage that Nat used to say son
times made him sit down and w,
for the shower of fire and bri
stone that he felt sure must
sent.down on them for that bir<
wickedness, A^id he'd fly at N?
jmll bis hair out in bunches, ai
make vicious grabB at his eyes ai
face. At ihese unfortunate timi
luckily;, were rare, Nat used to 1
down on his face and let Bob!
peg away and pull at him till 1
frenzy passed over. Nat kne
when that was by the bird p?re
ing somewhere near and easii
himself up by simply yellin
'Damn fool 1? Then Nat would g
up and start for home. Bobl
would fly to-his usual place (
Nat's shoulder, where he would i
intervals yell in Nat's ear, 'Dam
fool !' Nat never jawed back. I
said that he knew he deserved a
that Bobby gave him at such time
There wasn't anything too bad f<
a man who missed his turkey.
"Whenever Nat would take.h
gun to go out hunting, Bobl
would cock his head on one sic
and say :
"If Nat would say, 'No,' Bobb
would say :
" 'Quack quack?'
, "If Nat replied in the negativ
Booby would make the pee ul i s
bleating sound of the fawn, inte]
rogatively. If Nat said he wasn
going after deer, Bobby would sa]

bear were all the game Nat hun tee
and Bobby knew if it wasn't an;
of the first three he was going ou
after it must of course be . beai
But he alway? wanted to knoj
what the hunt was to be before h
.started. He was of no part?cula
use in a bear hunt.
" 'I jes' take him 'long to do th
swariug', Nat use to say.
"But Bobby always went outfo
bear with tho greatest enthusiasm
and once he was of actual service
Nat had started a bear, and it wen
into a thick swamp a short dis
tance, where no man or dog coule
get. Whether a sudden stroke o
genius, all at once he flew fron
Nat's -shoulder into the swamp
Such a hair-raising collection o:
yells and expletives as he tumblec
around in that swan p no li vin;
thing had ever hpard before. Bobb)
was evidently directing then:
straight at the bear, for the fright
ened animal came tearing out oi
the swamp with a smash and a
crash that a hurricane couldn't
have made. Nat said the bear's
eyes hung out, its terror was so
great. Nat downed the bear with
a couple of rifle balls, and" out of
the swamp came a couple of terror
stricken cubs, withBobby.yellb
and cussing right behind the]
Nat captured the two cubs ali
and took them home, against tl
vehement protests ..of Bobby, wi
yeiled his favorite opinion of N
in the latter's ears all the ' way i
' Nat showed great fondness for tl
cubs, but 'they were a perpetu
thorn in Bobby's side. He wi
wildly jealous of them, and gai
both them and Nat continual fit
Nat kept the cubs- in the cabii
and one night, after he'd had the]
,about a week, he was awakened fe
a noise. He heard Bobby swea:
ing like a pirate and the cut
whining. Nat listened, and b
and by he heard the cabin doc
opened. That was an easy matti
to do, for nothing fastened it, an
it swung on a leather hinge. Whe
the door opened and let the moor
light in, Nat saw that it was Bobb
who had-pulled the door open wit
his bill. . Nat lay still to see wha
the parrot would do, and what di
he do but drive both of those cub
out, nipping' them with his bill
and talking to them worse than an;
canal mule driver ever talked t
his mules. Bobby not only drov
the cubs out of the cabin, but h
escorted them some distance int*
the woods, and they understooi
well enough that they were to keej
on going. Bobby , came back to th
cabin chuckling like a little fiend
and closed the door and went t<
sleep. The whole proceeding ha<
increased Nat's veneration for th<
parrot so much that he said h<
could no more have interferrec
than he could have interrupted f

I few days after that Nat took dowr
gun to go out hunting.

The Importance of Salt.
- While most of farmers salt with
some degree of regularity, there
are too many who defer this until
they have nothing else to do. Very
few realize the great importance of
a constant supply .of salt for Uve
stock. In some experiments that
were made in France, it was found
that a lofe of steers were given free
access to salt at all times made a
much larger gain on the same
amount of feed than did a similar
lot which were not given salt at all
and another lot which was salted
once a week did but little better
than those which were not given
any. The blood has quite a large
quantity of salt in it, and this of
course, supplies the elements
which build up the carcass, and if
the supply of salt falls short of
the. requirements of nature the
assimilation of food is stopped to
just that extent and the result is
loss to the owner. Every hoad of
live stock on a farm should have
salt constantly, iu fact arrange
ments should be made so that it is
always accessible. It is surprising
to one who has never given the
matter attention, how often cattle
and sheep will go to the salt box
when they have it in a place
where they can get it at any time.
If stock is salted but once a week
they will eat more than is good for
them, if it, is given, and the sur
plus is not assimilated aud is lost
so far as anv benefit is concerned.
It is *a very simple matterto ar
range a covered box in such a man
ner that it can be mov^d from field
to field as the stock is changed, or
lumps of rock salt may be pro
vided, and the.owner will be much
benefitted "by being careful about
this matter. If you do not believe
this go without salt in your food
for just one day and then see how
good it tastes.

billious complaint," writes Erastus
Souhworh, of Bath. Me. "After
vainly trying a- number of reme
dies, I was finally induced to lake

sermon Monday evening, when 6.
P. C. Evans, one of the leading
prohibitionists of Indiana, arose,
and began a speech denouncing alf i

deeds ; the very conditions-of ex
istence in our populous cities aid
the sly and cunning follower of
sinful ways in escaping observa
tion. A clerk, for example,~can
transact business in one place,
room in a second, and board in a
third,?and be absolutely free from
the espionage and gossip that dog
the footsteps of the inhabitant of
the country district or village.
The people who live next door or
opposite.are strangers to him ; the
hundreds that jostle against him
along the street pay no attention
to his coming and going. He is
free from scrutiny and is tempted
to make large use of his freedom.
He may be punctually in his place
during the hours of daylight, and
talk like a gentleman of honor and
uprightness, and praise ideals more
or less noble, whilst his evenings
may be spent in a gambling den
or some hell of worse infamy.
Thus he sports the mask of virtue.
But death is very likely to un
cover his tracks and show what
manner of being he has been. And
alas! what sad and melancholy
revelations sometimes come thus
to light. Here is the paradox : the
grave winch buries its . victim out
of our sight is apt to expose hiB
affairs to public view. Not long
ago the daily press contained ac
counts of a man who had two
homes-one in a rural town," the
other, in the metropolis; his life
and reputation were dual, entirely
different in each home. In the
country he wa? a regular church
attendant, a liberal supporter of
the Gospel, and eminently high
spirited and valuable citizen ; in
the city he was an infamous
wretch, only his infamy was hid

owned them, and drew from them
the wages of sin, and increased his
gains in ways that it would not be
decent to mention in these columns.

If the pigs are to yield the high
est possible profit they must be
kept steadily growing. This can
only be done by careful and sys

they learn to. eat till they are ready
to sell, the pigs should be fed reg

to keep them growing than it is
to get them thriving after they

liberal feeding that promotes
steady growth, and it is steady
growth that yields a profit.

BEAUTY IN DISTRESS.
Why a Girl Swimmer Sat on a
Cold Baft Till After Sundown.
San Francisco Examiner.
The whispering waves. rose and
fell after the manner of whispering
waves at Santa Cruz and elsewhere.
There were not many bathers in
the surf, for the best of the day
was past and the smile had all
gone out of the weather.'
This was Wednesday afternoon.
Away out beyond the float "a black
speck showed now and then. It was
the head of the girl that swims bet
ter than anybody else at Santa
Cruz. The float is the[limit of the or
dinary swim down there, but to her
the swim to the raft is but the first
step of a journey. She swims away
out beyond the line of boats that
do what they can to make the sun
On Wednesday she tarried at
the deserted float; on the way outjto
Bea, and when she had gone there
remained on the float a bathing
skirt. Skirts are rather ?umber
8ome in long-distance swimming.
The wind rose a bit and by and by
a little wanton wave went over the
raft and carried the garmen to the
edge and other waves reached for
it and finally it left the raft and
went dancing merrily shoreward.
The bay is very breezy nowadays
at Santa Cruz, and the skirt was
hurried along. Nobody noticed
the garment until it had floated
close in, and nobody paid much?
After a while the girl who
swims better than any [one else
turned her strokes shoreward. She
reached, the raft and looked for
her skirt, which by this time was
being used as a mop by the wash
ing waves on the sandjr shore.
While a skirt is inconvenient in
a long swim, it is practically in
dispensable in*a walk up the hooch
when a lot of people are looking
on. So the best swimmer at Santa
Cruz huddled up on the float,
-vncre a ??UM??r prey?uied Qis j? .
on ih". ' ? .
More people came on to the beach
to wonder. They did not think
she was hurt or in danger for she
made no outcry, but it did not
seem possible that anybody could
voluntarily sit on a wet raft after
At last somebody saw ?the skirt
swashing around in the sand. The
girls and matrons comprehended
and giggled. Maybe some of them
thought it served her right for
being able to swim so welL The
cause of the trouble was apparent
but the rems dy was not clear. It
was very cold by this time, and
nobody wanted to swim out to 'the
raft, even lo rescue the distressed
one. There was no boat handy and
it looked for a time as if the best
swimmer at Santa Cruz would
have to roost on the cold wet raft
But the occasion, as is customary
with crines, produced its hero.
Addison Mizner, in a new bathing
suit burBt through the wondering
throng seized the garment and
plunged into the yeasty sea. As
he neared the raft the girl dived
and swam to meet him.
She got her skirt and the rest
was easy. \

from other cause the stomach,

ordered, no time should be lost in

an' they quarrel till the fall ;
But of all the bills from Bill ville, the
one we're wan tin' still !.
Is the bill that boys the boardin'-the
- old Ave dollar bill!
You may rumple it, an' crumple it, an'
twist an' turn it round,
An' stuff it in your pocket, where it
seems to weigh a pound ;
Or hide it in your woolen sock, or in
your boots-but still.
There's never no discountin' of the old
ff ve dollar bill!
It's greasy as the kitchen, from goin'
round so much,
But a feller ain't pertickler, when it's
ticklin' of his touch !
An' the biggest bill from Billville-an'
the one we're wantin' still
Is the rumpled ap, and crumpled up,
old-time five dollar bill !

the deceased before a strong light;
There was no scarlet color visble,

death had really set in naturally. *
After the burial of his wife the
shock whic^Boger had experien

until one day some one came to
him and told him that previous to

subject to periodic hysteria and

A terrible thought that his wife
