"Down Yonder" Luke Barker says... Wet Cellars

Down Yonder - Luke Barker says...      Thar ought t' be somethin' done about th' drys down along th' Mississippi, they all have wet cellers.
     Th' armless pencil sellers will hold that convention in Kokomo Indiany, it is understood thet they will not try t' thum thar way.

Translation for city slickers (non-hill people):

     Something should be done about the drys (dry counties) down along the Mississippi River, they all have wet cellars.
     The armless pencil sellers will hold their convention in Kokomo, Indiana. It is understood that whey will not try to thumb (hitch hike) their way there.
