Billy Wipes Out Old Scores

He would walk up and chew the pig-tail off the Chinaman’s head, as he would a straw rope. This would be the worst punishment he could possibly inflict on the Chinaman, and would wipe out old scores.

But what if his rope would not be long enough to reach the sleeping Chinaman. He advanced cautiously, and, oh joy! It would just allow him to touch the Chinaman’s head, and he could chew the cue off close to the scalp, which would make the man more angry than ever.

At first Billy chewed slowly and cautiously for fear of waking the Chinaman, but he soon saw he need have no fear. He was not to be awakened even by a thunder-bolt.
