"Down Yonder" Luke Barker says... Chimney Cleaner

Down Yonder - Luke Barker says...      Back thar in th' earlier days ya could jest about tell how expensive a hotel wus by th' class o' cuspadors they keep in th' lobby.
     Jod Rider th' chimney cleaner sez conditions ain't as black as they might be.

Translation for city slickers (non-hill people):

     In the old days, one could tell how expensive a hotel was by the quality of the cuspadors (spittoons) in their lobby.
     Jod Rider, the chimney sweep, said that conditions aren't as black as they could be.
