there be which go in thereat. Every
body had a big time while hit tast
ed but now its over with and it
pears like starvation had struck the
whole county, especially here whar
I stay. Sal sez we will get ove; hit
by Christmas but I don't know fur
the worst fs tu cum yit.
I dont remember ever seeing a.i j
much devi'ment agoin on at one j
time in my life before, as I seed
last Satterday, hit reached all 'hr
way from the main building clear
on past the grandstand and way j
out in the future years. Thar wuz j
the most tilings tu ride on of any |
place In the world. I reckon thar
wuz little old tent shows every
whar, with folks cookin' an eatin
all in between and people, a sea of
'em Jist about the same as the
Down on the lower side a gang
of darkles wood run out on the
front porch of a place and sing and
dance around awhile then go bar*
inside, an everybody wood roller 'em
tu see how hit wound up.
Everybody wuz a riding on sump
thin or another. Not fur from the
wild west show, I seed about half
a dozen white gals come out and
stand an look around like gals duz
when they air a lookin fur thier
fellows. They wuz shore purty os
they stood thar with paint all over
thier faces and with nothing at all
over thier legs. I started to git up
close tu see if I knowed any of ’em
but Sal grabbed me and pulled me
along atter her, fur she don't much
like fur me tu associate with there
kind. I went on with her jist like 1
didn't rare a durn about them sals
till I got a chance tu slip, off from
her. fhen I hit it back hi whar 1
could look at them a plenty. I got
up a rhat with 'em and the way I
told lies wuz a scandal. I told them
1 wuz not married and if they ever
got up about Casar tu be shore and
i come tu see me an Sal. Sal !s ny
I sister, l told 'em.
Hit made me sorter mean tu
think how easy I worked the trick
on Sal, so I started In tu have a bi?
time with every woman I seed *ha
had little enough sense tu fool With
me. I bought cue gal 5 cents worth
of popcorn, another sum lemonade.
! then I got a ballon fur a swee,
| looking little silly that I had never
i seen before.
After I got shet of Sal I enjoyed
the fair the most I ever did. and if
mv money hadn t a give out I ood
a bought up the whole thing. Thar
, I went up the midway a having
[ fun with all the gals—X jist know
ed that Sal wuz a running cverv
where a hunting fur me and mad a
the dickens. Just as I got even with
the Fcrrtsh wheel I heard Walter
Lee a doing sum of his big laugh
ing and that' shore ctiuf wuz him
and Sal a taking a ride! I min''
done nothing about hit yet but if
Walter don't soon do sumpthin fit
pro\e that his character is good. I
