It Is Well to He Ambitious, bat Certain
Things Mnst Go Alone; with It A Con
vincing and Forcible Lecture from the
Copyright, 1892, by Charles B. Lewis.
"It has cum to my knowledge," said
Brother Gardner as he arose and looked
around the hail and motioned to Samuel
Shin to drop another starohbox into the
stove to keep the thermometer at 104
degs. "it has cum to my knowledge dat
Giveadam Jones am full of ambishun to
becnm a second Sicero. I am pleased to
hear de news. De one great drawback in
our race is de want of ambishun. Sicero
was a great man, an he got cl'ar to de top
of de ladder befo' he died. Brudder Jones,
what time was it when I called at yo'r
cabin de odder mawnin?"
" 'Bout 9 o'clock, sah."
"An yo' hadn't got outer bed yit! Yo'
lay dar snorin like a steamboat gwine up
stream, an I reckon yo didn't hev break
fas' till an hour later. I vet me say to yo
Brudder Jones, dat if Sict to had laid on
his back in bed till 9 o'clock in the mawn
in he would nebber hev bin heard of out
side de Second ward of his own town. Am
bishun gits inter bel at 9 o'clock in de
eavenin an rolls out by sunrise. Ambishun
nebber snores. Ambishun doan' 'low two
dogs to sleep underde led, nor hang its ole
black feet ober de footbo'd. Yo' either
make a sudden change or drap de- Sicero
bizness, fur it's only time thrown away.
Am Kurnel Kyann Johnson present heah
"Yes, sah," replied the colonel as he rose
"Biudder Johnson, I'ze told dat yo' also
hev an ambishun. Yo' is ambishus to be
a second Cato."
"I was ober to see yo' de odder eavenin
and yo' wasn't home. I went out an looked
around a leetle and I found yo' in a saloon
"Jess shootin a leetle bit, sah."
"ll'ml Kurnel, did Cato fool away his
time shootin craps an hangin 'bout sa
loons?" "I dunno, sah."
"Waal, I do. He didn't. When he wasn't
sawin wood in de back yard or tendin baby
fur Mrs. Cato, he was readin up an stuflin
sense into his head. It's all right fur yo'
to hev ambishan, but yo'd better stop de
wants to sell out and go east and edit a
Sunday school paper, and the right kind of
an editor could hit Rockville right and
make things hum.
We Pitt Him. The other night as we
were returning from the birthday party
given by Mrs. Colonel Bland on the occa
sion of her eldest daughter's eighteenth
birthday we heard a gun go off six times
in rapid succession, while two of the bul
lets entered a telegraph pole about ten feet
above our head. They came from the old
gravel pit, and at first we thought some
drunken Indian was amusing himself by
wasting cartridges. All of a sudden it
truck us that our esteemed contemporary
might have broken loose again, and we
retraced our steps and discovered a cadav
erous critter seated on a stone by the road
side and evidenlly overcome by his emo-

collide together. I also noticed seben win

an rags an pi Hers an ole hats hangin out.
Cato didn't make no show of dat sort. Am
Elder KanifT heah wid us tonight?"
"He ar'," replied the elder from the back
end of the hall.
"Elder, it am reported dat yo' desiah to
becum a second Henry Clay."
"I hear dat yo' am practicin speakin in
"I ar', sah."
"But at de same time yo'r wife am prac
ticin on de washbo'd to support de fam'ly.
Dat won't do, elder. If Mrs. Henry Clay
had bin obleeged to nirn de support of de
fam'ly her li unhand would nebber hev bin
heard of 'cept iu de perliee cote or at a
hoss race. I'ze glad to see yo' ambishus,
but I reckon yo'd better return to white
washin an pay up yo'r back rent. Henry
Clay nebber owed no back rent, an de con
stable nebber had to tote his goods out on
de sidewalk. Dar am sartin odder mem
bers of dis club who hev lately been seized
wid ambishun to becum great men. While
I wish to incouragc all sicb, I must at de
same time warn 'em to go slow. About
ten pounds of ambishun in de system to
one bar'l of flour in de house is de scale to
go by. De world won't read de speeches
of a man whose wife has to go barfut. No
body kin enthuse ober de oratory of a man
who can't buy codfish fur breakfas'. De
poet ry of a poet whoowes de grocer, butcher
an baker hasn't got much ring to it. De
philosophy of a philosopher whose wife has
bin waitin three y'ars fur a new kaliker
dress at five cents a yard is too crooked to
be follered wid any comfort. Be ambishus,
but cut de string off purty low down to
begin on. De pusson who bites off more'n
be kin chaw up not only has to let go of it
all, but he kicks hisself arterward fur his
THE ARIZONA KICKER.
ot r e. c.
tions. It was our K. C. He had been
waiting in the pits two hours for us to
come along, and he had thrown away six
easy shots in peppering at us. We gave
him our heartfelt sympathies. Indeed we
have always felt doggoned sorry for the
man. Built to follow a corn plow and in
tended by nature to boss a cider mill, he
drifted out here on the crest of some er
ratic wave and started in as an editor.
There has never lxen a place for him and
the thought rankles in his soul. That is,
it tries to, but he hasn't got enough soul
for one little rankle to slosh around in for
ten seconds. We didn't hurt him. We
simply talked to him till he cried and
promised better things. We've lent him
ink and paper, got him out of jail, done
his presswork free gratis, introduced him
to decent folks, let him win twenty dollars
of us at poker, and he has shot at us no
less than seven different times, but yet the
critter don't and never will amount to
shucks. Some day he will follow us around
with his rusty old shooter and keep pop
ping until we get weary of the noise.
Then we shall pick him up and drive him
into the sand head first, and if anybody
takes the trouble to pull him out he will
be found dead.
He Regrets It. His honor the mayor
(who is ourself) deeply regrets the little
incident which interrupted the routine of
the common council work Friday evening,
but at the same time feels that it was not
in the least his fault. All our leading
citizens have hastened to assure him that
he made no mistake. The truth of the
matter is that Alderman Tom Jackson, of
the First ward, entered the council room
ugly drunk. He arose to speak when
there was no question before t he lody,
and was called to order. He refused to
heed the caution, and was ment ioned by
name and ordered to sit down. This made
him furious and he been me abusive. The
city marshal was ordered to put him out,
but crawfished. His honor then walked
down the aisle, and though covered by a
shooter he disarmed the alderman, broke
three benches with his body and flung
him down stairs in a miscellaneous heap,
when he was carried home on a door fur
nished by the lied Star saloon people.
The alderman is said to have been some
how telescoped until he is now only three
feet high, but the doctors were, pulling at
him all day yesterday in hopes to draw
him out a foot or two, if no more. If he
ever gets out again his legs will be badly
bowed, his shoulders humped up, and he
can njsyer pose under a calcium light as
the western Hercules, which he claims to
have done with great success. He has
been itching for the last three months to
get up a row in the common council, and
this is the result of it. We understand
that he is very contrite and humble, and
admits it was all his own fault, but he
sent for his guns yesterday and had them
cleaned and loaded. He will probably
fool around until a funeral will be the
"POOR OLD MA."
A Few Incidents That Make Life Worth
A Pleasant Call. We had a very pleas
ant call Saturday afternoon from Mr.
George II. Tread well, editor of The Banner
at Itockville, Utah. Mr. Treadwell is on a
trip for his health, which overwork had
greatly impaired. We took him out to our
private graveyard, made the tour of some
of the best poker rooms and endeavored to
make his few hours' stay as pleasant as pos
sible. We think he went home with some
new ideas on" journalism, alt hough he has
been in the harness for fifteen years. For in
stance, he had no idea that a shoe store,
gun shop, grocery, harness store, meat
market and feed store could be run in con
nection with a great family weekly and all
nnder one roof and one central head. Rock
ville is a harder town than this, and yet
Mr. Treadwell has never even been shot at.
hile we can't say much for him as an
tor. we have the highest respect for him
a man and a citizen of a sister state. He
But She Tn inert I'p After the Wreck All
As our train reached liossville we found
a great crowd gathered at the depot, and
about a hundred hoarded the train to go
down the line about six miles to the scene
of an accident. An accommodation train
had lieen thrown from the rails, and it was
reported that about twenty people had
'My ole woman was on that thar train
and is probably killed," said a man who
sat down beside me.
"You must hope for the best."
"Yaas, but I'm expectin to find her as
dead as a doornail. I'm feelin terribly
sorry, of course, but I'd like to know about
bow much damages I kin git in case she's
"The company will probably be glad to
settle with you for three or four thousand
dollars, and may possibly give five."
"That's a heap o' money, but of course
I'm hopin they won't hev to pay it,
S'posin she's all broke up and crippled?"
"Well, you'd probably get one or two
"I hope she hain't, of course, but I'm
jest askin so as to be prepared. I don't
know how I could git along without her.
A broken leg would be worth at least $500,
"I should think so."
"I'm hopin she hain't got one, of course,
but I kinder want to be posted on dam
ages. How much fur an arm?"
"About the same."
Waal, It's Jest awful to think of it, and
I can't sit still. If she's dead the railroad
folks will pay for the funeral, won't they?"
"That is the rule, I believe."
"Poor old ma! I hope "She's all right, of
course, but if she's smashed I shall stick
for 5,000. Would the railroad also buy
her a tombstone?"
"I think not."
"They orter do it, and I'll see if I can't
rr.nlic 'cm. Poor old ma how I do hope
you are all right!"
When the train stopped at the scene of
the wreck we all got out anil went forward.
We saw several victims lyinj on the grass,
ami as we stopped to look them over I
asked my friend if he could see his wife
"Xo, can't see nobody like her," he re
plied. "She's probably smashed as flat as
a pancake under that car, and they've got
to pay me them $3,000"
"Hello, Bill!" shouted a voice from the
top of the bank twenty feet above us, and
we looked up to see a little old woman
sitting crosslegged and smoking a pipe.
"Hain't hurt a mite!" she exclaimed as
she waved her band "hain't even barked
one of my shins!"
"Is that your wife?" I asked.
It was, but he did not reply. His jaw
fell, the excitement died out of his look
and he turned on his heel and walked off.
She called and called, but he did not stop.
He had lost "them $5,000" t hrough her ob
stinacy in not beinj killed.
He Was Onto the Backet.
As I came alonjj to a field in which there
were several log fires and a good many oak
stumps I found two men at a gate holding
a very animated conversation. One I
identified as the owner of the field, but the
other was a ragged and hungry looking
stranger, who seemed overcome with
emotion. They lxth turned to me as I
stopped my horse, and the ragged man
"Stranger, I'm glad you came along! I
want you to argue with this hard hearted
"I'm not hard hearted," replied the
farmer; "I'm simply protectin myself,
just as anybody ought to!"
"What is tiie case?" I asked.
"Just this." answered the farmer, "I'm
using cartridges to blow up stumps over
there. This feller is a tramp. lie wants
to sit on a stump and be blowed up along
with it. I refuse to let him."
"What's your object?" I queried of the
"To die!" he replied. "I hain't no good
to nobody, and I'd better be under ground.
Nobody but a mighty mean man would
deny me the favor."
"It's just this way, stranger," said the
farmer as he came nearer; "he'd git blowed
up all right with the stump, but it would
not kill him. He'd go up about fifteen
feet high and come down a leetle bit singed,
and he'd make it an excuse to hang around
on me for the neyt four weeks. I've tried
it on seven, and I've got two in the house
now, and I'm goin to draw the line right
here. Consarn 'em! Bein blowed up just
acts as a tonic and gives 'cm an appetite,
and they can't play it on me r.o more!"'
"I'll agree to die!'' protested the tramp,
with tears in his eyes.
"Can't help it. The line is drawed, and
tramps lias K"t to drown themselves in the
creek if they want to die. You move on!
Two miles up the road you'll come to a
farm where they are buruin lime. If they
want to let you jump into the kiln I hain't
nothin lo say, but I tell you positively that
I won't have uo more tramps a-bein blowed

Just before the train reached Montgom
ery a colored man, who had leen riding all
night in the smoking car, requested the
biakeman to send in the porter of the
sleeping car next behind. The porter
came in, and when he saw who it was that
wanted him, he put on a good deal of dig
nity and demanded:
"Boy, what yo' dun want of de offishul
who has cha'ge of a hull sleepin kyar?"
"Was yo tho po'ter, sah?"
"Dat's one of my titles."
"Po'ter, heah's a quarter fur yV," said
the other in a bland and patronizing way
as he extended the coin.
"Boy, what yo' mean! Yo' didn't dun
ride in my kyar."
"No, sah; no sah, but I dun want to
show yo', sah, dat yo' hain't de only gem'len
