Last winter a Gratiot street saloon keep
er went to Clnoioaatl oa a visit, and while
tweing tbe Iowa he Came across a saloon
sporting tbe wickedest old parrot which
ever learned lo speak tbe English language.
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!"
The good man gave a jump and looked
out of ibe window, thinking tbat a couple
of bad boys were playing euchre under bis
shade trees. 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
"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
