A Short True Story
by - Ike Pearson .
There used to be three boys around La'.vndale that went to school at Piedmont, and
they were pretty bad.
Professor Burns had given them plenty of stumps to dig. They dug around the
stumps until they were tired and decided to blow them up, so they got some dynamite
and one night about one o'clock they blew stumps in all'directions and shook some
window lights out of the building, Tliese three boys had a habit of putting their
meaness on me, but next morning Professor Burns called the three boys up and said,
"John do you know who blew up these stumps?" John said, "Gene knows who did it",
(jene said, "I wonder where Ike Pearson was last night"? Professor Burns said, "Gene '
you and John can't put'this on Ike for I know whose stiomps these were," So John said^
'‘Gene he has cau^t us, dad-blame it,- we ought to have had Ike with us last night".
And Gene said, "Dadgum it John we ought to have blovm up Ikes stunp too, .and then we
could have put this on him, sure as the world, ■
’Professor Bums let the boys off as they promised him they would not do it any
