I'd ruther break in the stoonidest lot o' hayseeds that ever breathed, rather than boys that think they know more'n I do. Now I'm goin' to have the time o' my life learnin' 'em the right face.""There's a couple of boys comin' up the road. Probably they kin tell us where the rijimint is," suggested Shorty.
