to me that things is gittin' higher an' higher
in price. 'Course it don't make much differ-
ence to me, I kin go out and shoot me a mess
o' squirrels or a deer, or catch some brim or
catfish and have a jimdandy meal. But when
you hear wimmin mutterin' curses at the 'out-
rageous' prices they're asked to pay fer
things, it's bad-I don't like to hear wimmin

the merchant he cusses the ,arithefi;: an' the
consumer he cusses 'em both, thet is, when
he's playing' the role of consumer. Iffen he
also plays the role of family breadwinner, he's
a robber o' some sort too during' work hours.
