     An uncomfortable pause. Then Tom said:

     "What's your name?"

     "'Tisn't any of your business, maybe."

     "Well I 'low I'll make it my business."

     "Well why don't you?"

     "If you say much, I will."


     "Much--much--much. There now."

     "Oh, you think you're mighty smart, don't you? I could lick you with one hand tied behind me, if I wanted to."

     "Well why don't you do it? You say you can do it."

     "Well I will, if you fool with me."

     "Oh yes--I've seen whole families in the same fix."

     "Smarty! You think you're some, now, don't you? Oh, what a hat!"
