A Good Story
“B{il's tellin’ it arownd,” chuckled
Marvin Parsons. ‘lt whs a good one
on Pliny, you betcher. Seemed like
every time Pliny passed Bill's house
that fice o' Bill's ud run out yappin’
and snappin’ at him, an’ he got so
mad that he swore he'd kill it.”
“I've swore the same thing,” sald
Sol Baker. “Did he Kkill it?"”
“You walt,” sald Parsons, struggling
with mirth, “Pliny’d been over to the
market an’ bought him a steak for sup
per. It was a right prime cut, an’
Pliny sald to Dick Spence when he
cut it that he didn’t gredge payin’ a
shillin’ a pound for a steak like that
was. 'l'm a-goin’ to have the old wom
an fix 'er up with inyuns an’ brown
gravy,’ he says to Spence, an’ the way
he said it. Spence tol’ me, he couldn’t
keep his mouth from waterin'.”
“I don't blame him,” sald Washing
ton Hancock. “I've tasted them steaks
that Pliny’s wife fixes, an’ I wouldn’t
want nothin’ better. She's got away
o' cookin' a steak that beats any I've
ever knowed. It don't need to be no
prime cut, nuther. She can take a
piece right atwixt the critter's horns
an’ make you think it wus porter:
house.” '
“That's the French in her,” said the
storekseper. “Then French—"
. “What did Pliny do to the dawg,
Marve?’ asked Baker, impatiently.
“Did he kill him? That's what T want
to know."”
“If he'd 'a’ killed him I reckon Bill
wouldn't be a-tellin’ it around fer a
joke,” sald the storekeeper, contemptu
ously. “That's a fool question to ast.
That ain’t Bill's style.”
“Bill'd be chasin’ behind Pliny with
a double-barrel shotgun right now if
Pliny'd kep’ up his gait this long.!
Pliny uster be some at runnin’, but
Bill's a staver, an’ he's mighty sot up
about his shotgun, an' he thinks a
right smart o' that dawg,” sald Han
“Anyway, this was a pertickler fine
plece o' steak,” resumed Parsons.
“There was two pounds of it, too,
an’ —"
“I wusn't digputin’ it bein' a fine
piece o' steak, Marve,” sald Hancock,
mildly. “All { was sayin’ wus that
Pliny’s wife ¢'d take 'most any scrag
gly, tough ol' piece o' beef an’ fix it
up so's it 'ud seem like a prime cut.
You don't need to get miffed.”
“What did the dog do to Pliny,
Marve?" asked Baker.
“Who gald he done anythin’?” de
manded the storekeeper. “Why don’t
“That's what 1~ saypnce._ to tell it?”
“You keep your mouth shet an’ your
ears open, Sol, an’ you'll soon find out
about the dawg If you're so deter
mined to know."
“What dawg is that?” asked Henry
Westerman from Duck Crook, as he
lounged up to the group and hoisted
his bulky form to a seat on the
counter. “Ben Sibley’'s?"
“No, it's Bill Riley's dawg,” sald
Parsons. “I was tellin'—"
“I didn't know Bill had a dawg. Is
he any ’count?”
“Jest a little fice,” sald Baker. “One
o' them onery little yappin' tarriers, no
ercount fer anythin’. I told Blill T was
a-goin’ to kill him if he run out at me
“I thought mebbe you was talkin’
about Ben Sibley's Tige,"” said Wester
man. “Jerry Bush says he seen u!
dawg that can whip him. It's one of
those yere sheep dawgs, an' a feller
over in Sassafras township owns him.
He's whipped everythin' over in that
sectlon, an' Jerry says Tige wouldn't
last him five minutes. I thought if I
seen Sibley I'd tell him about it. It's
gotter to be a pow'ful good dawg to
whip Tige.”
“Tell us about Pliny's dawg, Marve,”
entreated Sol Baker.
“Does Bill think he e¢'n fight?”
asked Westerman.
“Why, no,” said Parsons, hastily.
“It hain’t a fightin® dawg. 1 was sayin’
that he'd be'n pesterin’ Pliny Williams
a right smart, an’ Pliny had be'n
around to Dick Spence's to get him a
steak for his supper. He was a-goin’
to have his wife fix It up with inyuns
in great shape.”
“She’'s a great hand to fix steaks
with Injuns,” explained Hancock, help
fully. “She can take a plece off the
shank or off the neck of a beef an’
cook it Bo's it 'ud melt in your mouth.”
“She’'s French,” supplemented the
storekeeper, “an’ them French know
how to fix vittles. There was an ol
French woman down where 1 was
ralsed— Where you goin’, Marve?"
“Tell us about Pliny afore you go,
- Marve,” begged Hancock.
| Parsons turned and faced the group
frresolutely. “Well,” he sald, “Pliny
wus goin' by Bill's with the steak an’
he seen the dawg nosin’ at a rosebush
two yards off an' he hadn’t got a rock,
80 he plugged at him with the steak,
an' the steak hit a tree an’ the paper
busted an' the dawg got the steak an’
run under the house with it afore
Pliny ¢'d git around to him, an' when
him an' Bill did git the steak it was o
mauled it wa'a't fitten for nawthin’,
an' that's all there wus to It, dog
gone every last one o' you!"
“What's Marve mad about?” gald
Hancock wonderingly, as the raconteur
strode out of the store,
