If they can hit her, fine; if not, I'll catch up with her with the pole axe." The pig was in the sheep place, and the door was boarded up so high. At last the old man said, "All right, shoot her." Peter was the fellow that got the job of shooting the pig. And the pig had a habit of climb? ing up on the boards when anyone would go in. Oh jeez, but he fired at the pig and the pig fell on her back in the trough. And she was kicking to beat hell.
