Cracker Jack is up to his old tricks: putting one over on his Yankee schoolteacher; confounding a census taker; and convincing a befuddled farmer that its not Saturday but Sunday (and if the preacher finds him working on a Sunday, well, therell be you-know-what to pay!).
Sheriff “Pogy” Bill Collins used to be the worst lawbreaker in Okeechobee City. Then he promised Judge Hancock that hed walk the straight and narrow in return for his release from jail. Pogy Bill kept his promise to the judge … and then some.
