GRANGER'S SONG. A Parrot with a Wicked
one who Las ever had
l? rmTa parrot,
appreciate Ihe following
appreciate the following true
story trom a Detrnjt p per re
laling to a parrot with a wick
ed tongue. Last winter a Ora-
tiot trset saloon keeper went
to Cincinnati on a visit, and
while seeing the town he came
across a saloon sporting the
wickedest old parrot which
ever learned tospt-ak tbe Eng
ia ia lauguage. . Gsdtiot street
si nod by and heard the bird
"rip and tfcar" lor a straight
hour, and when he came home
Hint parrot came with him. All
ihe way up here the purrot,
"went lor" Irakenien and bag-page-men,
ripping out Oaths
which Uapt. Kidd couldn t have
handled, and the further north
lie c ime the more wicked he
trer. Reaching Detroit, hi?
cage was hung up in his sa
loon, and "Jack" has been there
ever since, up to Friday. It
was a poor day when he didn't
learn some new outh of slangy
expression, aud finally he be
came -so that nobody but a
burdened villian could talk
with 1j i hi. lie was' sola last
Friday for $20, and his ownrr
kept him about nn hour and
then sent him as a present to a
minijier'8 wife wht.ln boeu
attentive lo his family during
sickneos. She was very grate
lul, having often thought how
nif e U would be to have a talk
ing purrot around the house
Jack" seemed put out by t lie
change ol owners and ho sat
on his perch all Friday nigh
and relusod lo say a word Sit
urday morning the minister'
wile started lt,r Pontiuc, and
site curied ''Jack's" cage into
her husband's si inly that neith
er might he lonesome. She
had been gono about an hour
Hiid the good in in was scrib
bling away when all at once
Ihe parrot shouted:
"Hearts is lrumpt?"
The good man gaze a jump
and looked out of the window
thinking thai a couple" ol bad
boy 8 were playing euchre un
der his shade trees. Lie could
see no one, and, supposing that
he was mistaken, he seated
himself and began to write
agaiu, when the parrot shout
"JNot any gin, thatik ye!"
Uorrified, the clergyman
looked around and he Saw
'Jack" trying to wink at liiir.
Llall doubling it it was the
bird which had spoken, yet de
terruined to find out, he in
"(Shot up, i r I'll put a head
ou ye! 'replied Jack, hatlging
to the cage with one cUw and
shaking his leathers.
Is it possible?' eiclaime
the good man drawing nearer
tr the cage.
Champagne Charlie was hU natrie
Champagne Charlie was his name,
sang Jack, swinging luribusly
on the slick.
'Vile bird, yon shall go out
of here!' said the minister
an excited voice, 'l would
soon harbor a highwayman!'
-Rouse mil him!"' cried Jack
and then he chuckled and
cackled as il be was luughly
ll is a sin and a shame that
men have taught an innoceui
bird to use such language.
continued the good man, as
oicked up Ihe cage,
Hithito with a beer tomb
ler reotied the parrot, trying
to fiisten his clawa into the
'Little did my wi:e dream
what a viper Bhe was bringing
into tbe- house,' mused the
man. 'I shall hi.e some boy to
carry you away.'
'Send tor the Black Maria,'
replied the bird, and while he
was being carried out he con
tinued, 'who stole the wheel
barrow?' The minister reached the
toop and called to a boy who
was playing rnumlleiypeg on
'Here, bub,' hBiid, as the
boy c .imo up; Mako this Lir I off
somewhere and give liim awa
aud I'll give you Iwo shillings.'
Give him to any one who
will take him,' continued the
minister. 'I have received a
hock wl.iuh iairly makes me
Chuck him under the table!'
called the bird, as he went
through the gate, and when he
was nearly a block away he
could be heard singing:
Wo won't go home till morning
Till daylight does appear.'
The Sheirick Case.
We copy the lollowing ac
count of a recent affray which
occurred in Jackson county
recently from the Jackson Uer-
The preliminary examination
belore Mayor Laird, of James
Sherrick lor the killing ot Levi
Strouse, excited great interest.
flie facts as they appeared be
fore the Mayor are these Sher
rick had rented a piece ol
ground of Mr. Strouse, and had
put it in Corn and potatoes.
Strouse had told a number of
his neighbors that Sherrick
should not have the crop, and
if he undertook to dig tbe po
tatoes be .would shoot him
The morning of the killing
Strouse sent a little boy, named
Allred Hartley, who worked lor
him (Strouse ) iuto the potato
patch just as Mr. Sherrick and
Ins two bos reached it
Young llartley told Sherrick
le had better go aw.y as Mr
Strouse had said il he (Sher
rick) came into the patch he
would shoot him. Sherrick
said he would dig the potatoes
if "hell froze over! ' Just then
a 8iiot was henri at Strouse'"
house, t wo hundred yards away,
and Young Hartley told Sher
rick he hal better go away hs
that, wus Strouse. The bov
went to the house and fount!
Mrnuse loading Ins pis ol
When londe-d and capped he
startel for Ihe pclato p itch at
a rapid walk. When within
lew feet of Sherrick, Strouse
presented the pistol and shoved
it against Snerrick's fac and
at the same time ordering him
nut Sherrick knocked him
down with his fist, and grabbed
the mnfczie" of the pistol. Then
ensued a s'riiscle which lasted
several minntps, and in whifh
Sherrick fearhed one hand for
a hoe, Ftill retaining his enp
on the mii2z!e of the p:i'ol
keeping it turned awav'fnm
him. and strck him" (S'fonse)
on the side of the head one
twice probably twice. Sher
rirk then made renewed efforts
to get the pistol, and finallv
eetting it he started off nnr
hurried tn the office, of Alb'i
Hartleiy. a Justice of the Peace,
and wanted a warrant
Strouse. Sherrick at that time
had no idea of Rtronse being
hurt much as immediitotv after
he had atari ed a way.Slrodse
np, and after rdrkine up a hot
. . ... - .
tie ot ammnnihnn. which
his strueglp had dropped ont
his pocket, had started foriiis
honse. The Mayor held Sher
rick to answer to the chnrg
monalangh'er. ll gave bail
for his arparance in the srjm
of SI 000. Sherrlck's life-long
character for peac and quiet
comes strongly to his aid
