It was in June, just after the birth of June bugs, that it oc- curred, and I remember it .as though it had been May—maybe more so. My pa was a big farmer on a small way—that is, he induced me to cultivate about an acre, while he enjoyed a steady sit in Bill Thorp's Drug store, and made more concentra- ted lye about his big farming than any three men in Balk county. <•-■< ~ This June he induced me, by a rule he always kept handy, to take Physic—that was a mule's front name—and plow up that acre. I went out to cogitate a little, as to whether I ought to work Physic or me either, that day, and I concluded that I'd bettter, and at it we went. We had dug two ruts across the lot and was on the home stretch of a third, when all of a sudden something sharp and p...
