We would say to the culprit that has been making nightly visits to the smokehouses and corn cribs in the vicinity of Pitman and Supply that is a very hospitable neighborhood and that we have ever boasted of the fact that none of our neighbors should be allowed to go hungry but we much prefer to be allowed to help you pick from our crib and smokehouse the part that you and family are to subsist upon. Otherwise one of these cool mornings you will be wanting some one to help remove some chilled shot.
