HAIRCUT

I GOT another barber that comes over from Carterville and helps nie out Saturdays, but the rest of the time I can get along all right alone. You can see for yourself that this ain't no New York City and besides that, the most of the boys works all day and don't have no leisure to drop in here and get themselves prettied up.
You're a newcomer, ain't you? I thought I hadn't seen you round before. I hope you like it good enough to stay. As I say, ,ve ain't no New York City or Chicago, but we have pretty good times. Not as good, though, since Jim Kendall got killed. When he was alive, him and Hod Meyers used to keep this town in an uproar. I bet they was more laughin' done here than any town its size in America.
Jim was comical, and Hod was pretty near a match for him. Since Jim's gone, Hod tries to hold his end up just the same as ever, but it's tough goin' when you ain't got nobody to kind of work with.
jamThey used to be plenty fun in here Saturdays. This place is -packed Saturdays, from four o'clock on. Jim and Hod would show up right after their supper, round six o'clock. Jim would set himself down in that big chair, nearest the blue spittoon. Whoever had been settin' in that chair, why they'd get up when Jim come in and give it to him.
You'd of thought it was a reserved seat like they have sometimes in a theayter. Hod would generally always stand or walk up and down, or some Saturdays, of course, he'd be settin' in this chair part of the time, gettin' a haircut.
Well, Jim would set there a Vile without openin' his mouth only to spit, and then finally he'd say to me, " Whitey,"-my right name, that is, my right first name, is Dick, but everybody round here calls me Whitey-Jim would say, "Whitey, your nose looks like a rosebud tonight. You must of been drinkin' some of vour aw de cologne."
So I'd say, " No, Jim, but you look like you'd been drinkin' somethin' of that kind or somethin' worse." Jim would have to laugh at that, but then he'd speak up and say, " No, I ain't had nothin' to drink, but that ain't sayin' I
