X:1 T:Hughie's Cap M:2/2 L:1/8 C:Ed Reavy R:Reel N:A favorite story of Ed's tells of Hughie, an easygoing N:sort who had a fierce look when he wore a certain cap. Friends would N:take Hughie along whenever a fight was anticipated. One look from N:Hughie and his cap would silence the most quarrelsome bullies. One N:night, as it would happen, Hughie's friends found themselves in the N:worst sort of mix and quickly looked for Hughie's help. But Hughie, N:alas, had ventured out this time without his menacing capeen. "Oh God," N:one exclaimed, "somebody go fetch Hughie's cap, or there'll be hell to N:pay for all of us this night!"
