"He's jes a child's what Sifers is! And sir I'd ruther see, That happy, childish face o' his and puore simplicity, Than any shape, er style er plan o' mortals otherwise— With perfect faith in God and man ashining in his eyes."

Mr. Riley makes the rustic worshiper of Doc Sifers speak thus of his library.

"Doc's lib'ry—as he calls it—yes, they's ha'f-a-dozen she'ves, Jam full o' books—I couldn't tell how many—count yourse'ves! One whole shef's works on medicine! And most the rest's about First Settlement, and Indians in here—'fore we driv'em out."
