The New Fable of the Galloping Pil
grim Who Tried to Sit Down
by the Wayside.
A certain affluent Bachelor hap
pened to be the only Grandson of a
rugged Early Settler who wore a Coon
Skin Cap and drank Corn Juice out of
a Jug. Away back in the Days when
every Poor Man had Bacon in the
Smoke House, this Pioneer had been
soaked in a Trade and found himself
loaded up with a Swamp Subdivision
in the Edge of Town.
Fifty years later the City had
spread two miles beyond the Swamp
and Grandson was submerged beneath
so much Unearned Increment that he
began to speak with what sounded to
him like an English Accent and his
Shirts were ordered from Paris.
On the 1st of every Month the
Agents would crawl into the Presence
of the Grandson of the mighty Musk
rat Hunter and dump before him a
Wagonload of Paper Money which had
been snatched away from the strug
gling Shop-Keepers, who in turn, had
wheedled it from the People who paid
a Nickel apiece for Sunday Papers so
as to look at the Pictures of (he Deco
rations in the Supper Room at the As
sembly Ball graced by the Presence of
the aforesaid Bachelor whose Grand
father had lifted the original Catfish
out of the Chicago River.
Then the Representative of the Old
Family would take a Garden Rake and
pattern all this hateful Currency into
a neat mound, after which a milk-fed
Secretary would iron it out and disin
fect it and sprinkle it with Lilac Wa
ter and tie it into artistic Packets,
using Old Gold Ribbon.
After that, it was Hard Lines for the
Bachelor, because he had to sit by a
Window at the Club and dope out
some new Way of getting all that
Coin back into Circulation.
As a result of these Herculean Ef
forts to vaporize his Income, he found
himself at the age of 40 afflicted with
Social Gastritis. He had gorged him
self with the Pleasures of this World
until the sight of a Menu Card gave
him the Willies and the mere mention
of Musical Comedy would cause him
to break down and Cry like a Child.
He had crossed the Atlantic so often
that he no longer wished to sit at the
