Mr. Red, I hope your grandfather never had dealings with mine. My paternal grandfather was a district attorney and then a judge.

Things were a little lively in the mills in those days. The one and only time I was ever taken to task for not cursing, I was talking about Henry Clay Frick, Andrew Carnegie's business partner.

Carnegie,in this part of the world, is pronounced carn egg ee. There is a nice little town named after him a little north of here.
