AUNT DICY’S
TRAIN TRIP

“Look a here Bub; let me tell you something - you better take
that thing and put it out of the way, ’cause if you keep on putting
it over here close to me, I’m going to spit in it afterwhile”

AUNT DICY
AND THE NEW BRAND OF SNUFF

“After Uncle June had finished drawing and coloring the train he
pasted it over the original label on the jar of snuff, put the jar in his
saddle-bag, straddled ‘Old Roan’ and rode back to Dime Box.”
