Title The Mills of Justice
Description "It's a bull," yelled Willy. "Yes, it's Uncle John's mean bull. He has been in Aunt Mary's washing she left on the line, and he has a sheet caught on his horns." "See, George, there is always a logical explanation for everything." Well, maybe, thought George, as he tried to get up. As their heartbeats slowed down, the boys regained their confidence and continued on their way. "As soon as we get to old man Ralph's place, does everyone know what to do?" "Yes." "Pete, have you got the meat for the dog?" "Yes, it's in my back pocket." "We can't have the dog barking now, so we'll have to be very quiet." "He knows me, and when I give him something to eat he won't make a sound." "All right; everyone knows what to do. As soon as you are finished, meet back here and watch the fun." Willy took one end of a long rope and tied it to the door-knob of the kitchen door, then he and Richard pulled the rope around the house very taut and tied the other end of the rope to the door knob of the front door. Quickly and quietly, they made their way back to the meeting place. Several of the other boys went to the stable, where they whacked boards against the side of the barn which frightened the horses, and they began to jump around and whinny. Two of the boys awoke the chickens from their sleep, and the remaining boys started running the cows around in the corral. Pete could not control the dog any longer, and it ran to the barnyard barking as loudly as it could. It was time for the boys to retreat. -35-
