AUNT DICY
AND THE SNUFF SALESMAN

“The proposition was that Mr. Bergen was to get somebody
in Lee County, who was a snuff-dipper to taste some of Levi
Garrett’s snuff, and some ‘Ralph’ Snuff and see
if they could tell the difference between the two.”

AUNT DICY
AND THE CHOCOLATE CANDY BAR

“Turning around she saw Reverend Jackson looking straight
down at the snuff-juice on the ground . . . that’s a Hershey
candy bar; the doctor put me on ’em for my health, but they’re
so nasty I just chew ’em up and spit ’em out.”
