Now old Jim Sprukes was a prut ty good and uprite man, as all his nabors would testify. He praised ther nght, and frowned on ther wrong He hadnt never caught a nnbor in a-tite, and drove a hard bargin with im caus he had lost his grip. He paid what ther deal was wuth to im, and not what he mout force ther other feller to take. He had worked hard and saved his surplus and laid up a little for old-age thout skinnin no bodys hide offn 'em and leavin em lookin lak a scare-crow. He growed up berfore ther days of fast drivin, and his world and his nabor hood was measured by ther distance of a buggy-trip. But after seein many suns come-up and go-down over old Dobbins head, ffilks at the County-Seat that made fertelize for ther farmers, and them that sold credit on ther craps, and many that ginerally traded on shore-profit, bergun to sell thay buggy-hosses and buy tham-air caboos lookin things called orter-mobiles. But thay prices was way-up yander outn ther reach of country-folks that had to give what thay was charged, and take what thay could git for ther things thay growed and put on ther market, so thay hilt to thay bosses, and drove in ther ditch and let ther rich folks and them-ar things hav ther road-bed Then one day, country-folks ber gun to hear that thar was a feller name Henry Ford that was a-makin a gas-wagon that would sell cheap, sos ther farmers cud ride fast too, and purty soon folks bergun to see em rolhn round. Sum called 'em Flivvers, sum called 'em Tin-Lizzies and sum called 'em Henrys, and thay was marked Fords, jes leavin ther Henry off. And one day Jim saw one of 'em drivin thru ther streets at ther County-Seat, with one thejn-ar music-boxes in it, singin?"I'll take you eny-whars you wants ter go." And rite then is when Jim's hanker in got ther best of his keerfulnes, caus he had made up his mind to have one. Now Jim's wife was name Lizzie, and she prided her-sef that she hadnt never fed Jim outn no tin cans. She claimed Jim deserved three squares a day, and them to cum mostly outn a pot, not outn a tin can Fact was, she want in no har mony with no tin-cans. So when Jim went home and told bout what he calcalated to do, he didn't call it no Tin-Lizzie, hit would a-spilt all ther harmony he was a-hopin to create. He says?Lizzie, we hav bin livin in ihif here naborhood ter-gether nigh on to twenty-five year, and aint nev er got futher than a days-drive with old Dobin; I'm a-calcalatin you needs a Honey-Moon trip futher away than that day we drove frum ther church to home here, and thay say that them noo Ford cabooses called Flivvers kin go a hundred miles in one day, ef you jest lams how to dodge ther mud-holes?what you say to us git tin one, and fixin up a basket of what-all you kin cook, and see whar we kin git to in two-three days?jes you an me on a real Honey- Moon? ?Maw and ther boys kin keep look out here twell we git back, and meb by thay turn will cum next, when we gits ther trail blazed out into ther big-world, lak old Danl Boone dun cordin to ther boys school books what you say? Lizzy was so took with surprise that she got all caflaba-gasted and says Amen berfore she ever took time to think once, much less twice. And all that is how, few days later atef Jim had took sum lessons on things to push, and things to pull, and ho^ to twist ther steerin-wheel, that ho and Lizzie turn out ther front 15? ther foad, and way past ther-County-Seat, and into summc "hd past summo County-Seats that thay had never seed berfore, and whar thay didnt know no-body, and evything thay past by was new and interestin to 'em, and thay was havin a Honey-Moon to not swa/F*btf. Now Jim had dun many things in his life-time that showed his intrust in man-kind, and one of 'em was? one day he was passin by one these sink-holes close by ther road-side that ther boys calls thay old swim min-hole. Hit was a deep hole, not fer frum a swamp, and the spring rains had fulled it oer, and summer had cum, and sum little boys was paddlin bout ther edge, and one of 'em had got irv the deep water and was holloing every time he cum up. Jim saw 'im and shuck off his shoes and as he made fer 'im he saw u al igator that had cum from ther swamp, and was a-makin fer 'im too, but Jim piled in and beat ther gat er, but as he turnt to swim out with ther boy, ther gater grabbed Jim by the rehel and bergun to turn over and twist JjpVs leg all outn socket, hit seemd lak; and then sumthin happened to that gater,*caus he turn ed Jim's foot loose, and Jim brung the boy out. Jim was laid up with his heel fer quite a spell, but ther nabers went after that gatehr, and dragged ther pond with a hay rake with ropes tied to it, twell thay pull 'im out, fightin mad, but he couldnt fight; his low jaw was as limber as a calf rope tied to a halter, and thay went back and told Jim that there want no doubt but what ther Good Lord had struch that gater, not with lock-paw, but j|ith drap-jaw; and thay carried ther gater to ther church to show ther folks ther mir acle that had saved Jim and ther boy. Now all that made Jim feel that it was just natally his duty to do all ther good he could when folks was in need, and that brings up to what happend on this here Fliver-Honey Moon Jim and Lizzy was a-havin. Thay had drove fer three days into ther wilds of wonders with new 'things to see, and evy-body strang ers; and long a country road wharl ther woods was thick thay cum to a openin, and hcered a woman hol lerin murder, hep, come here, and lots of other things ealcalated to stir a man to run quick, and Jim stop ped ther Flivver, and told Lizzie to watch out, and he run to a house he seed in their feld, and thar was a man had his little weasly wife down on ther ground jest a-slappin and a-boxin 'er real brute-like: And Jim grabbed ther feller, and flung'im down, and was giving 'im what he desarved when ther fellers wife got Jim by ther hair and yer-bout pull ed all out, and Jim had to turn I loose, or light ther woman his-self. Jim was disgusted and went a-goin I to be today, and 1 jest wante to ay that 1 lives nabers to these yer-scala wags, jes quarter-mile off, and I knows thay air rascalions and a-row in all ther time, and evy thing thay hav sid about this-yer fight, aint so, cause 1 cum round the woods-path jest as ther stranger run to ther house and pulled ther triflin rascal way frum giving his wife ther beat in I knows she desarves, and I aint a-feered to tell ther truth on 'em, cause thay aint got ther guts to do nuthin to me. And thejr Judge turnt j Jim loose, and Jim and Lizzie went strait back home, and next day Jim driv ther Flivver down to his own County-Seat and sold 'er fer less than lu* gived, and that night he says to Lizzie Next time we goes on a Honey-Moon it's a gain to be ber hind old Dobin rite here in ther clearin. And lliens one more time Lizzy says ? Amen.
