Pap Perkins, Postmaster, Tells About a Temperance Drink. One of the village ordinances of Jericho made it a misdemeanor for any one to us-; profane language on the public streets. It had been a dead letter for ten years when a tin peddler came along one day and grot into a dis pute with Deacon Taylor over how many acres of coin a man could hoe in a day. It was all in good nature at first. The Deacon always bragged that he had once hofd three acres, and when he came to put this at the peddler there was a wrangle. It wasn't long before the two men were calling names, and there might have been a right if others had not stepped in. The peddler had used several oaths, and in order to get even with him the Deacon had him ar rested and fined $3. Kverybody looked to see the peddler appeal the case and prove his grit, but when he had paid his tine, hewentabout in a humble way and said: "I lost my temper and swore, and It was only right that I should be fined. I am very sorry that I acted so, and I hope all of you will forgive me. I am satisfied that Deacon Taylor can hoe three acres of corn in a day, and I bear no grudge for his having me arrested." That was in April and the peddler was not seen attain until June. Then he showed up and said he was out of the tinware business, and had Invented a temperance drink for the summer sea son, lie let everybody drink of it, and everybody said it was the best thins of ttie kind. After two or three days a stranger appeared who wanted to talk to the people about getting; a railroad, and a public open-air meeting was called. The peddler helped the thing- along Yv, i hour, and those who had sampled be r. T" T j fore said that the taste had improved. The speaking didn't amount to much, but the temperature drink did. It was a warm evening and the crowd was thirsty. The tin peddler filled the cups himself, and his invitations included all and were pressing. TT WASN'T LONG BEFORE TIIE TWO MEN WERE CALLNG NAMES. The speaker had been at work about twenty minutes when he was interrup ted by a wrangle between Josh Davis and Kbenezer Goodhart. Josh had bmgged that he could build a hundred rods of rail feme in a flay, and Ebene zer had as good as called him a liar. On the heels of this came a row be- j tween Moses Sehemerhorn and Abner i Green. Moses had once bought a cow of Abner which died of hollowhorn i within a week, and he had felt edge wise i-vfT since. He now called Abner a villain, and Abner called him a liar, and they clinched and rolled on the ground and pummeled each other. "Gentlemen, let us have peace, and let me again call your attention to my summer temperance drink," shouted the peddler, as the two fighters were pulled apart, and for a few minutes i there was brotherly love. I But it did not last. Deacon Taylor ! suddenly remembered that on an oc i casion he had bought a load of hay from Goodhonrt Schemerhorn. and : that it appeared to be short, and he be gan to talk about, it. Goodheart said j the hay was all right, and that any i man who would hint to the contrary i was a catiff. At about the same time Fhiletus.

There were two fights at once, and they continued for ten minutes, and when they were over the peddler filled his cups -and cried out; "Let peace and harmony prevail, dear friends, and meanwhile don't for get that this is the greatest summer drink on the face of the earth. If you have not tried it, try it now. If you have tried it, try it again." The railroad man got up to speak again, but he had onlv begun to tell of the benefits that a railroad would be i to Jericho when 'Lish Billings was bitten by somebody's dog and began to ewear. He was the only one bitten, but his example was contagious. There was no more fighting, but men cooked their hats on their ears and spat over their shoulders and went around bragging and cussing. It -was afterwards remembered that the pei dler and the stranger made many jot tings in their memorandum books, but nothing was thought of it at the time. It was 11 o'clock before the meeting broke up. Some of the men went away singing and whooping, while others fell down and wont to sleep and did not get home until brekfaFt' time. Little business was done in town the npxt day, as everybody had a headache and was weak in the knees, but on the second day things were lively. The con stable started out at 7 o'clock, and by sun down he had arrested about 50 men. Some of them were charged with lighting and disturbing the peace, but most of the warrants were far profanity. In every case the tin peddler was tho complainant and the stranger the witness, and the tes timony was clear and straight. Four lawyers came over from Dobb'a Ferry, and it took a week to try all the cases. Not a man got away. It was $5 fine ana costs from beginning to enrt, find when the last case was disposed of there wasn't enough loose currency in town to buy a pound of tea. It was the temper ance drink trmt did it. It must have cost the neddier a nice lit tle sum for the liquors he mixed together in that bnrrel and diluted with water, but he had his revenge on the town. He had scarcelv departed in a whirlwind of dust and glory when the village president call-4 ed the trustees toyetner ana solemnly said: "All of you who are in favor of repeal ing the ordinance against public profanity will say 'I.' " "I." solemnly replied every trustee. "The I's have it, and durn that tin ped dler!" (Copyright, 1903, by C. B. Lewis.) SOMETHING ON HIS MIND. I found the sheriff of an Alabama town sitting under a shade tree near the postoffice. and, after an introduction and some genera! conversation, the talk fell upon a npgro who had stabbed a man in town that day and escaped to the swamps. The official was telling how he was planning to go out next day after the man, when a negro boy came up and addressing him by his title, said he wanted to sneak to him. "Don't you know better than to inter rupt me. Joe?" exclaimed the sheriff, and after a growl or two resumed his talk. The boy retreated In confusion, but five minutes later he Teappeared to say: 'Mars Green, I dun want to speak to you." "You here again." shoutnd the sheriff. "Take yourself off, and I'll teach you manners later on." The boy disappeared, but the story was not half ended when he returned and excitedly stammered: "Mars Green, if you don't come away " "Hang it. boy. but what do OU mean?" thundered the sheriff, as he half rose. His attitude was so menacing that the boy fell over himself to get away and ran across the street. AVe noticed him standing over there for the next ten minutes, but it was only when the story was finished that he slowly crossed back again and said: "Mars Green, ken I speak to you now?" "That you, Joe? What is it?" "I'ze bin waitin' to tell you 'bout de Jail. sh." "Weil, what about the jail? Tou should know better than to interrupt a gentleman." "Rut all the prisoners dun got away half an hour ago, sah. I wanted to tell you. but you " The sheriff went off like a wild loco motive, but he was too late. His seven prisoners had filed the barn and gone out by the window. M. Quad. c f S .- $ I At (7 u WANTED FEMALE HELP. WANTED A dining room girl Midland hotel, 400 Quincy st.
