US Quincey admires the paint job ion the theater. Maybe he’s looking for some to paint his perpetually unpainted barn. Lum shares a complaint about the way Abner runs the projector. Mousey and Gussie, Earl Butler and his family, and even Squire Skimp all pass through the box office line. Has Squire actually let bygones be bygones? Lum is convinced, but Abner feels more safe to hide under the counter.
