"Yes Hiram, I'm doin' all I can for the children but I'm worried over the boy- he's jest that age when he's gettin' restless and don't like to stay home nights, he's down to the corner grocery evenins a listening to the talk down there an I'm afeard taint a doin' ov him any good- he says there aint no fun home with me and Ma and I suppose that's so- he says home aint half as interestin' as 'tis down to Beale's store and Ma and me don't know what to do to attract him. What u'd you do if he was your boy?" Hiram. - (Poking his finger into his pipe slowly and thinking seriously.) "Wall Zenos I'll tell you what I done about six months ago with my boy. He's sixteen now and had begun to pull at the bitt pooty strong, an' I went to town and bought him a melodeon - one of them music things with treadles that you pump with your feet and draw the music from the ivry keys with both hands. Wall the boy took to it, I hired a teacher for him an' he's learnin' real fast, an Sabbaday nights your sister Polly an' I sets down an' sing while he plays the melodeon. It's real sweet an' he plays China and Ole Hundred real peart 'twould do your soul good to hear it." Zenos. - "Wall if I thought that u'd work with Bub I'd get him a - what'd ye call it?" Hiram. - "Melodeon." Zenos - 'Yes. yes I'd get him a melojum in a minute." Mrs. White. - "Now reely Hiram d'ye think a melojum would help matters much? I know they're reel nice, and Becky Clark has got one with a Gamboge case, an' she sings an' plays beautiful on her's, but praps Bub an' Sis wont take to it at all." Hiram. - "Aint they got ears for music?" Mrs. White. - "I d'no Hiram- sometimes I think they has an' then agin I think they haint, but them melojums cost a mint of money don't they?" Zenos. - "Oh don't you fret about the money mother. You're too plaguey savin'. (to Hiram.) She takes that from the Nicholses- her pa Nichols was so close that he want goin to let me hev Mirandy unless I paid him fer her." Mrs. White. - "Now Zenos, you make that up out of hull cloth you know you do- Pa an' Ma hed to be close with all the mouths they hed to feed an' provde with raiment, but they want mean- don't you believe a word he says Hiram." Hiram. - "Haw- haw! I know him of old Mirandy - he wouldn't say nuthin if he didn't talk." Mrs. White. - "No I know it, but it hurts my feelings to hear him run on about Pa an' Ma an' they both dead an gone an layin' in their las' restin' places." (Puts her apron to her eyes.) Zenos. - "Sho now Mother, you orter know I didn't mean nothin' but a joke- you should orter know how to understan me by this time Mirandy." Mrs. White. - "Wall I don't Zenos, an' I wish you wouldn't joke no more with me. I notice you don't like to have Mike fire his jokes at you." Zenos. - "Wall Mike's jokes do rile me, but it's becos they don't hev no pint to 'em- but let bygones be bygones Mirandy an I'll fergit my jokes hev been said if you will, so cheer up." (Mrs. White wipes her eyes several times, says nothing and resumes her apple paring.) Hiram. - "Can Bub sing any?"
