still deep in the woods behind the Turkey Creek Baptist Church, and he
would have to take his molasses to the top of the hill, and roll it down
to them.  This way he did'nt know exactly where the still was, and he
could'nt turn them in.

     her head.   He never found out what really happened to her.
