AUNT DICY
AND THE COURTROOM

“Aunt Dicy, don’t you know it’s a five dollar fine to spit snuff-juice on the Court
House floor? . . . No I didn’t, Son,
replied Aunt Dicy . . . I tell you what to do;
take this fifteen dollars and give it to the Judge for me right now, ’cause I’m
going to spit two more times before I leave the Court House.”
