Ill CYNTHIANA, PET-NAMED ORIGINAL SIN "This yere speecific heroine is a heap oncon- ventional, so much so as to be plumb puzzlin' to the common mind. Jest the same, she finishes winner, an' makes herse'f a gen'ral source of pride. She don't notify us, none whatever, that she intends a Wolfville deboo; jest nach- erally descends upon us, that a-way, as onan- nounced as a mink on a settin' hen. All the same, we knows she's comin' while yet she's five mile out on the trail. Not that we sawys who she is or what she aims at; we merely gets moved up next to the fact that she's a lady, an' likewise no slouch for looks.
