INITIATING THE OLD MAN.
OIVINO PA THE "HOf AL BUMPKH DEGREE
THE BAD BOY PLAYS MASON.
"Say, are you a Maaunor a rjod follow, or
anything?" aeked the Milwaukee bad boy
of tho grocery man, aa he went to the cin
namon bfttf on the ehulf and took nut a long
stick of cinnamon bark to chew.
"Why, yes, of coime I am. But what
set you think ng of that?" asked the gro
cery innD, aa ho went to tho desk und
clmrged tho boy'n father with a half pound
"Well, do tho goata bunt when you
nishiate a fresh candidate?"
"No, of coursi not. The Roata are cheap
oiH'8, that have no life, and wo muzzle
them and put pillows over their heads, id
they can't hurt anybody, said the grocery
rutin, os ho winked at a brother Odd Fel
low who was seated
why do you
"Oh, nothin', only I wish me and my
chum htd muzzled our goat with a pillow.
Pa would have enjoyed becoming a mem
ber of our lodge better. You soo Pa had
been telling us how much good the Ma
sons and Odd Fellows did, and said we
ought to try and grow up good so we could
jino the lodges when wo got big, and I
asked pa if it would do any hurt for us to
have a play lode in my room, and purtend
to nishiate, and pa said it wouldn't do any
hurt. He said it would improve our minds
aod learn us to ba men. So my chum and
me borriud a goat that lives in livery
stable and carried him up to my room
when pa and ma were out riding, but the
go it bhtted bq we had to tie a handker
chief around bis nose, aod his feet made
such a noise on the floor that we put some
baby socks on his feet.
Well, sir, my chum and mo practiced
with that goat until he could bunt a pic
ture of a goat eyery time. We borried a
buckbear sign from a saloon man and buug
it on the back of a chair, and the goat
ould hit it every time. That night pa
wanted to know what we were doing up in
my room, and I told him we were playing
odgc and improving our minds, and pa
said that it wm right, there was nothing that
did boys of our age half so much good as
aer'niT cuifai "asked'pa .if &e 'didn't want
to come up and take the grand bumper de
gree, and pa laffed and said ho didn't care
if he did, just to encourage 113 boys in in
nocent pastime, that was bo improving to
our inteilcx. We had shut the goat up in
closet in my room, aud he had got over
in bUttiug, so we took ot tho handker
chief, and lio was eating some of my paper
collars aud skate straps.
"Wo went up-stairs and told pa to come
p pretty soon and give three distinct raps,
and when we ask who come there ho must
ay 'a pilgrim who wants to join your an
cient order and ride the goat.' Ma wanted
to come up, too, but we told her if she
come in it would break up tho lodge,
cause a woman couldn't keep a secret, and
we didntt have any side 6addle for tho
goat. Say, if you never tried it, tho next
time you nitiato a mBn in your Mason's
lo?ge, you sprinkle a littlo kyan pepper on
the goat's beard afore you turn Liiu loose.
You can get three times as much to the
eqaure inch of goat. You wouldn't think
it wns th same goat. Well, we got all
fixed and pa rapped, and we let him in
and told him he must be blind folded, and
ho got on his knees a lafflng, and I tied
a towel around his eyes, and then I turned
him around and made him get down on
his hands also, and then his buck was
right towards the closod door, and I put
tho buck beer sign right against pa
clothes. He was a luffing all the time and
said we boys were full of fun as they made
em, and wo told him It was a solemn occa
sion, and wo wouldn't permit no levity, and
f he didn't stop luffing we couldn't give
him the crand bumuer degree. I hen
everything wis ready, and my chum had
his hand on the closet door and some kyau
pepper in the other hand, and I asked pa
in low buss toucs if ho tolt as though ho
wanted to turn back, or if ho had norvo
enough to go ahead and take the decree.
I warned him that it was full of dangers,
as the goat was loaded for beer, and told
him ho yet had time retraco h!s steps
if ho wantod to. He said ho wanted
tho whole Witness, ami wo could go nhoad
with tho menagorio. Then I said to pa
that ho decided to go aho&d, and not blame
us for the consqiioncos, to repeat after mat
the following: ''Bring forth the royal
bumper and lot him bumpl" Pa repeated
the words, and my chum sprlnklud the
kyan poppor on tho goat's moustache, and
he sneezed onco and looked sassy, an
then he soo (the larger boor goat raring
up and ho started for It just like a cow
catcher and blatted.
"Pa is real fat, but ho knew he had got
hit, and he grunted and said. 'Hell's tire
what you boys dolaT and then the goat
gave him another degree, and pa pulled oil
the towel and go ur) and started for the
stairs, and bo did the goat, and ma was at
tbe bottom of the stairs listening, and when
I looked over the banisters pa and ma and 1
the goat were all in a heap, and pa was
yelling murder, and ma was screaming fire,
and the goat was blattiog, and sneezing
and bunting, and the hired girl camo into
the hall and the goat took after her, and
she crossed herself just as the goat struck
her and said, "Howly mothor, protect
me," and went down stairs the way we boys
slide down hill, with both hands on hersolf,
and the goat rared up and blatted, and pa
and ma wont into their room and shut the
door, and then my chum and me opened
the front door and drove the goat out. The
minister, who comes to see mt every three
tunes a week, was just ringing tho bell,
and the got thought ho wanted to be nish-
iated, too, and gave him one for luck, and
then went down the sidewalk bUtting and
sneezing, and the minister came in the par
lor and saia he was staooea. and then pa
camo out of his room with his suspenders
hanging down, and as he didn't know the
minister was there he siid cuss words and
ma c ied and told pa he would go to hell,
sure and pa Said he didn't care, ho would
kill that cussed goat afore ho weut, - and I
told pa the minister was in the p irlor, and
he aod ma went down and said the weather
was propitious for a revival, and it seemed
as though an outpouring of tho spirit was
to bi vouchsafed to his poople and nono of
them sot dowa but mi, 'came tho goit
didn't hither, and while they was talkin'
religion with their mouths, and cussin' the
goat inwardly, my chum and me adjourned
the lodgo, and I went and stayed with
im all night, and I hain't been boms
since; but I don't believe pa will lick'me,
caui'jho siid ho would not hold us respon
sible for tin consequences, no ordered
lie goat hisolf, and wo filled tho order,
don't you boo? Well, Iguwsl will go and
sneak in the back wav and find out from
the hired girl how the land lays. She
just happened to get in at the wrong time.
Good-bye, sir. Remember ami kko you
