"Sh"i.t that hat." replied the seeker sfter information as he balanced the tile on his hand. "Put your hat on your head and it won't g t shot. Pnii't you know how to behave yoursolf?" "T do. and 1 don't want to be talked to that way. Lot go of ine a"d U-mme g-t off. 1 won't title a mile further with no such crowd. I was asking about the man w ho shot a hat." "Nobody ever did." "Then why didn't they say nn If T'd fvpr shot a hat I'd own up to it like a man instead of dodging" around." He was assisted down the aisle and til car stopped to 1, t him off. but as lie gained the sidewalk he tnrii'd and shook 1 is fist at th" oar and shouted: ' Try it. w ill you'' Some of you just Fhoot at my hat and see what will hap pen to you!"
