If ever I go to the legislature I am going to get a bill through to pension all men who raise to man hood more than two boys. My father raised fot^r and he ought to have had four pensions. I am rais ing one and I say darn a durn boy. any way you take him. Hereafter ΓΠ take girls in mine and risk the trifling son-in-law in the future. Just as soon as a boy gets big enough to walk he will begin to play tricks on his daddy. His mama will always side with him and it makes no difference what the little galoot does, she will think he is smart. It doesn't take a boy and his mama long to form a combination against the old man "hat will make life inter esting to him for all time to come. 1 am the oldest of my father's I children. In less than two years | after my arrival Bud came to break the monotony,* and with my help we | broke it. I know only from hearsay bow our boyhood went off. but ! dot remember our sleeping on the trim-1 die tied, and how we used to fight over old Tom, the cat. I would want him and Bud would want him. l would «et him by the head and Bud would get htm by the tail and we i would pull until old Tom would give j us both a jxraiching and skin ou! to the Mara to sleep in peace. When we were older we were transfefred Ό another room across the hall. We slept in peace as only j boys can sleep, but when we were j not asleep things were not so peace- j fsj 1.

One day a fellow came to our honte selling pear trees. He said he was lust Introducing the fruit, and &« (heir stock was limited he could sell but two trees to a family. He naid the pears would he as large as sugar bowl», a« yellow as gold, and a* *weet as migar. He wait a smooth art tat and Pa took two al la.OO a piece. He planted them in the gar den and read 'he riot act in regard ίο them to Bud and me.

I then went back to bed and slept till morning But. you may bet your *ocks I was» up and out to the barn feeding before Pa got up. Bud al ways did sleep like a log and be slept on. Just as the robins began to sing I Pa arose and moeied out to look a' j his pears. He Raw their remains, and Bud m old boot tracks, ft made j him so mad that he took out hi» | knite and cut the top out of one of ι the tret·*, trimmed it up and started to the house for Bud. 1 could se»· hint from the harn and could tell from hlt> maneuvers that, the old He went into our room, nave Bml j a rank b\ 'he nape of the neck anil : says "1*11 *how you how to play j trick* on tour father you vouuk : -« amp Th<- pear* taMed #ood did they* Did η t Kmtck your neck much I ku··*»?

Pa gave me #ome of his apple brandy and that knocked all the colic out. 1 got to feeling pretty good and called him "governor.'· he boxed my ear* and told me to shut up and go to sleep. I ehut up but didn't go to sleep. Ma told Pa to stay in bed with me for fear I might have an-, other spell. He lay over next to | the wall and was soon fast asleep. About ι midnight I heard the gatej rattle and knew Bud had come back. 1 went out and stood by the corner | of the house to watch him. He went to the cistern and got him a drink, then went around to the kitchen hark door and got the bucket of slop. Now, that slop had the usual ingre dient's of dishwatei. cabbage leaves, onion blades and about a gallon of j blackeyed peas. Bud got this mixture and started to our room for me. but when he got to the steps leading into the hall he sat down and soliloquized thusly: "Yes, he did fix nte. but I'll fix him now if I am acquainted with myself.: I know I'll get a thrashing, but it j won't be the first one I ever got. Besides. Pa will get mad and whip us both and will give him the most be cause he is the elder. He laughed a chuckle and went in w ith the slop. There Pa lay all silhouetted against the wall, and I have no doubt dreaming of his two good little boys. Bud of course thought he was me. He upped with his bucket and gave him a wave from bis head to hisi heels, then he reversed his position and gave him a dash from hi* heels to his head. This time the peas hit ♦ ht wall like so many buckshot. Pa j jumped tike a shot cat and lit right onto Bud. He thought Bud was me· and thai I was drunk on too much colic medicine. Bud thought Pa was; me too. and such another fight you never saw. They fought like kilken-1 nv cats and the tur flew. Bud pulled some of Pa s pretty auburn whiskers and Pa made it so hot for Bud that , he yelled so loud he brought out j some of the neighbors. Ma stopped the row, then cried: and said we were all disgraced: then* tried to explain to the bewildered j neighbors and wound up by saying. th.it Pa was to b'ame for it all. Pa said he did m t <are wha' she and ail th.· neirhlo-s and all the Win folks iho'ish' cr faid. that he was boss of the family and would whip Bud this time or bust. "Just look at my whiskers, a bed ι ruined, and a room to be repapered. O, we are indeed a happy, happy family!"' But my "colic medicine" had over-j done the thing with me and I laugh- i (h! too much and too loud and made a few facetious remarks, which caus ed Pa and Ma to hold a joint coun-I ril of war. 1 felt so gi*>d and so, big that I never denied anything, but told it ail and more too with gusto. I told them that I ate the pears, that I never had any colic, and asked Ma :f she «ildn t think Pa j was the softest old, codger this side' of the polar stajf They decided that I needed chas- !1 tisement and tha' I was the prime reuse of Bud's "slopping" Pa. Pa got him a bpanch from a cedar tree snd we retired to the wood shed ι where there was a "sound of revelry by night." He talked to me about ; Jails and the gallows and intimated < ihat I might some day come to a | bad end. He did not "spare the rod , and ruin the boy.'* but gave me a whipping that I shall remember till j my dying day and I deserved it But as a man sows so shall he j reap. sow the wind and you will . reap the whirlwind. Yesterday morning I went to put « on my shoes when I found a dead s rat ia one ot them that had been put there b* my flve-year-old son. I «tarted to spenlf tn* brut, but hia Riothei said "no," and laughed at the trick her boy had played on hia daddy. Then I thought: "woe unto the man who hath a wife and one or more eon* for hie path shall be rocky and the aons and mother shall com bine against fcim and in the end he shall need a pension."—Milfin.
