Gratiot street stood by aod heard the bird "rip aod tear" for a straight bour, and when be cams borne tbat parrot oam witb bim- All tbe way up here tbo purchase 'went for" braketnen and baggagemen, ripping out oaths which Capt. Kid couldn't have handled, and the further North bo came tbe more wicked he crew. Reaching Detroit, his cage was hungjup la the sslooa and "Jack" bas been there ever since, up to Friday. It was a poor day when be diJn't learn some new oath or slangy expression i and floully be became so that nobody out a hardened villlaa could talk with him. He was sold last Fridav for $20, and his owner kept him about an hour and they sent him as a present lo a minister's wife who bad been attentive to his family during sickness She was very grateful, having often thought how nice It would be lo have a talking parrot around tbe bouse. "Jack" seemed put out by the change ol owners, and sat on bit perch all Friday right aod relused to ty a word, Saturday morning tbe minis ter's wife started tor Pontiac, aod she carried "Jack's" cage Into ber husband's ttudy Ibat neither might be lonesome. She bad been gone about an hour, and the good man was scribbling away, when al I at ooce tbe par rot shouted: "Hearts Is trnitp!"

Ho could see no one, and tup- posing tbat be was miatakeu, be seated ! himself and began to writo again, when tbo parrot shouted: "Not auy gin, thank ye '." Horrified, the clergyman Jookcd around and saw "Jack' trying to wink at bim. l'lalf doubting if it was tbe bird which had spoken yetdeiermiuod to flud Joul, be in quired i "What!" "Shut op, ot I'll put a bead on ye!'' re plied Jack, banging to the ogo with one claw and shaking bis featbero. "Is it possible?" exclaimed the good ma.i.1 drawing nearer to the cage. "Champagne Charley was his oamo Champagne Charley was bis name," saog Jack, twiagiug furiously oa tbe slick "Vile bird, you shall go out of bore!'1 said tbe minister in an excited voice; "I would as soon harbor a highwayman." "Rouse mlt bim!" cried Jack, add then be chuckled and crackled as it be was Uugbiog heartily. 'It Is a sin and a sbamo tbat men bave taught an Innocent bird lo use such Ian guage," contiuued the good man, as be picked up tbe cage. "Hit bim with a boar turcbUr, replied tba parrot, tryiug to lasteu bis claws into the ministerial leg. "Little did my wife dream what a vipr sho was brlnglug into Ibe bouse," mused the tuao. "I shall hire some boy to carry you away." "Send for the Black Msria," replied the bird, and while be was being carried out be continued, "Who stole tbe wheelbarrow." . Tbe minister reached the sloop an.l call ed lo a boy wbo was playing mumblety peg on the gran "Here, bub," be said, as the ' boy earne np; "take this bird sir somewhere and give bim away, and I'll give you two shillings." "Ob, dry up uow!" growled Jack, seem' log lo know Ibat be was to change places again. 0 "Give bim to any oie wbo will take bim," continued the minister. "I bare ro oeive a (hock wbioh fairly make me troto ble." "Chuck htm uuder tbo table:" called tbe bird, as he went through tbo gate, and when be was nearly a block away be could be beard slrging: "We won't go borne till morning Till daylight dues appear.".
