The Boy Scouts Down in Dixie
"That's always the way it goes!" "Why, what's the matter with you now, Step Hen; you seem in a peck of trouble?" "Who wouldn't be, when some fellow went and hid his hat away? Didn't you all see me hang the same on this peg sticking out from the trunk of the pine tree, when we-all came ashore to eat lunch; because that's what I did, as sure as anything?" "Oh! you think so, do you?" "I know it as well as I know my name. Think because I've got a stuffy cold in my head just like Bumpus here says he has, and can't smell, that I don't know beans, do you? Well, you can see for yourself, Davy Jones, my nice new campaign hat ain't on the peg right now." "Do you know why that's true, Step Hen? Because a thing never yet was known to be in two places at the same time. And unless my eyes are telling me what ain't so, you've got your hat on right at this minute, pushed back on your head! Told you, boys, Step Hen ought to get a pair of specs; now I'm dead sure of it."
