"Well," said Nick with a laugh, "I 'll be sober enough to stack up with any measly kiote that's pirootin' around this town!"
"I told Nick not to send for you, but the darned kiote went and done it without me knowing it!"
Tuck in an 'fire my men, butt on my affairs -- Why, you impudent young puppy-dog, you: I'll make you stick your tail between your legs an' howl like a kiote before I'm done with you! "
We 'll load up with warrants, and arrest every kiote that's thought to be a member of the gang; and we' ll start in with Faustin Dysert himself! "
Nick, you was a sure kiote to send for him yesterday. "
Tom, "he said, and the Irish roll in his voice showed that his contrition was sincere enough to move him deeply," sure and I was a measly, beastly, ornery kiote to go back on you like that, and you 'd have served me right if you' d set on me twice as long as you did! "
