How Mark Twain Used Today’s Evocative Word – BREECHES – to get ’em evocating!
“Now here is a gold-miner’s compliment. It is forty-two years old. It was my introduction to an audience to which I lectured in a log school-house. There were no ladies there. I wasn’t famous then. They didn’t know me. Only the miners were there, with their BREECHES tucked into their boot tops and with clay all over them. They wanted someone to introduce me, and they selected a miner, who protested, saying:
“I don’t know anything about this man. Anyhow, I only know two things about him. One is, he has never been in jail, and the other is, I don’t know why.”
