TTTE BOY WITH A LAME BACK.
A j-onng felW who is pretty smart era
peneral principles and who is always in
good humor went into a store the other
rooming limping and seemed to be broke
lip generally. Tiie proprietor asked him
if he wouldn't si; down, and he said he
couldn't very well, as his back was lame.
He seemed disco araged, and the proprie
tor asked him what was the matter.
" Well," said he as lie put his hand on
his pistol pocket and groaned, "there is
no encouragement for a boy to have any
fun nowadays. If a boy tries to play an
innocent joke, h 3 gets kicked all over the
house." The storekeeper asked him what
had happened to disturb his hilarity.
He said he had played a joke on his fa
ther and had be?n limping ever since.
"Yon see, I thought the old man was
a little spry. You know he is no spring
chicken yourscf, and though his eyes
are not what they used to be yet he can
see a pretty girl further than I can. The
other day I wrc te a note in a fine hand
and addressed .t to him. asking him to
meet me on the corner of Wisconsin and
Milwaukee str-ets at 7:o0 on Saturday
evening, and si jned the name of 'Daisy
to it. At supper time Pa he was all
shaved up and hiwl his hair plastered
over the bald s iot, and he got on some
clean cuffs and said he was going to the
consistory to initiate some candidates
from the country, and he might not be
ln till late. H didn't eat much supper
and hurried eff with my umbrella. I
winked at Ma, but didn't say anything.
At 7:30 I went down town, and he was
standing there by the postoffice corner
in a dark plac . I went by him and said.
'Hello, Pa. what are yon doing there?
Ho said ho w is waiting for a man. I
went down street, nnd pretty soon I
went up on the other corner by Chap
man's, and he was standing there. Yon
see, he didn't know what comer Daisy'
was going to l on and had to cover all
"lit (law tnc a dollar."
"I saluted him and asked him if he
hadn't found his man yet, and he said
no; the man was a little late. It is a
mean hoy tiiat won't speak to his Pa
when he' sees him standing on a corner.
I went up street, and I saw Pa cross over
by the drug store in a sort of a hurry,
and I gould see a girl going by with a
waterproof on, but she ski ted right along,
and Pa looki-d kind of solemn, the way
he does whe i I ask him for new clothes.
I turned and came back, and he was
standing there in the doorway, and I
Baid: 'Pa, yoa will catch cold if you stand
around waiting for a man. You go
down to the consistory and let me lay
for the man ' Pa said. 'Never you mind;
you go abou t your business, and I will at
tend to the man.'
"Well, wlien a boy's Pa tells him to
never you laind ana looks spunky, my
experience is that a boy wants to go right
away from there, and I went down street.
I thought I would cross over and go up
the other Bide and how long he would
stay. Ther9 was a girl or two going up
ahead of me, and I Bee a man hurrying
across from the drug store to Van Pelt's
corner. It was Pa, and as the girls went
along and i ever looked around Pa looked
mad and stepped into the doorway. It
was about 8 o'clock then, and Pa was
tired, and I felt sorry for him, and I went
up to him end asked him for half a dollar
to go to the Academy. I never knew him
to shell out so freely and bo quick. He
gave me a dollar, and I told him I would
go and get it changed and bring him back
the half a dollar, but he Baid I needn't
mind the c'lange. It is awful mean of a
boy that hi always been treated well to
play it on his Pa that way, and I felt
"As I turned the corner and saw him
Btanding there shi Jering, waiting for the
man, my c jnscience troubled me, and I
told a polii eman to go and tell Pa that
'Daisy' had been auddenly taken with
worms and would not be there that even
ing. I peeked around the corner, and Pa
and the jioliceman went off to get a
drink. I was glad they did, 'cause Pa
needed it jter Btanding around so long.
Well, whe a I went home, the joke was bo
good 1 told Ma about it, and she was mad.
I guess she waa mad at me for treating
Pa that vay. I heard Pa come home
about 11 o'clock, and Ma was real kind
to him. the told him to warm his feet,
'cause they were just like chunks of ice.
Then she iwked him how many they in
itiated in he consistory, and he said six,
and then ( he asked him if they initiated
Daisy' in the consistory, and pretty soon
I heard Pi snoring. In the morning he
took me into the basement and gave me
V. lit:, a, talking to that I ever had
with abedalat. He said he knew that I
wrote that note all the time, and he
THE ARGUS, SATUliDAT! , SEPTEMBER ),
thought he would pretend that he was
looking for 'Daisy just to fool me.
"It don't look reasonable that a man
would catch epizootic and rheumatism
just to fool his boy, does it? What did
he give me the dollar for? Ma and Pa
don't seem to call each other pet any
more, and as for me they both look at
me as though I was a hard citizen. I am
going to Missouri to take Jesse James'
place. There is no encouragement for a
boy here. Well, good morning. If Pa
comes in here asking for me, tell him
that you saw an express wagon 'going to
the morgue with the remains of a pretty
boy who acted as though he died from
concussion of a bed slat on the pistol
pocket. That will make Pa feel sorry.
Oh, he has got the awfulest cold,
And the boy limped out to separate a
couple of doga that were fighting.
THE BAD BOY AT WORK AGAIN.
Of course all boys are not full of tricks,
but the best of them are. That is, those
who are the readiest to play innocent
jokes and who are continually looking
for chances to make Borne howl are the
most apt to turn out to be first class busi
ness men. There is a boy in the Seventh
ward who is so full of fun that some
times it makes him ache. He is the same
boy who not long since wrote a note to
his father and signed the name "Daisy" to
it and got the old man to 6tand on a
corner for two hours waiting for the
girl. After that scrape the old man told
the boy that he had no objection to inno
cent jokes, such as would not bring re
proach upon him, and as long as the boy
confined himself to jokes that would
simply cause pleasant laughter and not
cause the finger of scorn to be pointed
r.t a parent he would be the last one to
kick. So the boy ha been for three
weeks trying to think of some innocent
joke to play on his father.
The old man is getting a little near
sighted, and his teeth are not as good as
they used to be, but the old man will not
admit it. Nothing that anybody can say
can mako him own up that his eyesight
is failing or that his teeth are poor, and
he would bet $100 that he could see as
far as ever. The boy knew the failing
and made up his mind to demonstrate to
the old man that he was rapidly getting
o!T his base. The old person is very fond
of macaroni and eats it about three times
a week. The other day the boy was in a
drug store nnd noticed in a showcase a
lot of small rubber hose about the size
of sticks of macaroni, such as is used on
nursing bottles and other rubber utensils.
It was white and nice, and the boy's mind
was made up at once. He bought a yard
of it and took it home. When the maca
roni was cooked and ready to be served,
he hired the table girl to help him play
it on the old man. They took a pair of
shears and cut the rubber hose in pieces
about the same length as the pieces of
boiled macaroni and put them in a saucer
with a little macaroni over the rubber
pipes and placed the dish at the old man's
Well, we suppose if 10,000 people could
have had reserve seats and seen the old
man struggle 'with the india rubber mac
aroni and have seen the boy's struggle to
keep from laughing they would have had
more fun than they would at a circus.
First the old delegate attempted to cut
the macaroni into small pieces, and fail
ing he remarked that it was not cooked
enough. The boy said his macaroni waa
cooked too tender, and that his father's
teeth were so poor that he would have to
eat soup entirely pretty soon. The old
man said, "Never you mind my teeth,
young man," and decided that he would
not complain of anything again. He took
up a couple of pieces of rubber and one
piece of macaroni on a fork and put them
in his mouth. The macaroni dissolved
easy enough and went down perfectly
easy, but the fiut macaroni was too much
He chewed on it for a minute or two
and talked alxrot the weather in order
that none of the family should see that
he was in trouble, and when he found
that the macaroni would not go down
he called their attention to something
out of the window and took the rub-
He chewed like a seminary yirl chewing
ber slyly from his mouth and laid it
under the edge of his plate. He was
more than half convinced that his teeth
were played out, but went on eating
something else for awhile, and finally- he
thought he would just chance the maca
roni once more for luck, and he mowed
away another forkful in his mouth. It
was the same old story. He chewed like
a seminary girl chewing gum, and his
eyes stuck out, and his face became red,
and his wife looked at him as though
afraid he was going to die of apoplexy,
and finally the servant girl burst out
laughing and went out of the room with
her apron stuffed in her mouth, and the
boy felt as though it waa unhealthy to

tarry too long at the table, and he went
Left a?one with his wife the old man
took the rubber macaroni from his mouth
and laid it on his plate, and he and his
wife held an inquest over it. The wife
tried to .spear it with a fork, but couldn't
make any impression on it, and then Bhe
saw it was rubber hose and told the old
man. He was mad and glad at the same
time glad because he had found that his
teeth were not to blame and mad be
cause the grocer had sold him boarding
house macaroni. Then the girl came In
and was put on the confessional and told
all, and presently there waa a sound of
revelry by night in the wood shed, and
the still, small voice was saying: "Oh,
Pa, don't You said you didn't care for
innocent jokes. Oh!"
And then the old man between the
strokes of the piece of clapboard would
Bay: "Feed your father a hose cart next,
won't ye? Be firing car springs and
clpthea wringera down me next, eh? Put
some gravy on a rubber overcoat proba
bly and serve it to me for salad. Try a
piece of overshoe with a bone in it for
my beefsteak likely. Give your poor old
father a slice of rubber bib in place of
tripe tomorrow, I expect. Boil me a rub
ber water bag for apple dumplings pret
ty soon if I don't look out. There! You
go and split the kindling wood." Twas
ever thus. A boy can't have any fun
To be Continued.
Cfler to Float the Victoria.
Siguor Balsuinello, the inventor of the
Bulla Naut ica. the submarine vessel with
which several successful experiments
were performed lately at Civita Vecchia
in the presence of a commission appoint
ed by the Italian government, declares
that by the aid of his invention he can
float her majesty's ship Vtoria at a
cost of less than 40,000. He says that
with ttie Balla Nautica he cau make ar
rangements for raising weights far ex
ceeding that of the sunken ironclad. The
preparations and placing of grapnels and
chains around the Victoria would take a
month and would be performed by the
crew of the submarine ship, which has
already descended to and been maneu
vered successfully at depths beyond that
in which the Victoria lies. The bring
ing of the ship to the surface would take
two days. St. James Gazette.
