Shaunavan tales – Bronk riding in the parlor (1903)
By Hugo Maguire, Shaunavon, Sask.

‘Johnny Smart had been punching cows for the V outfit north of Maple Creek. During the summer the work was finished and Johnny rode to Maple Creek. He bought the best suit of clothes in Dixon Bros. store. He also bought himself a fancy shirt and tie for twelve dollars. He got Old Bridge to groom him and decided to pay a visit to Rosy Sloan, who dwelt with her parents on a ranch about twenty miles up the creek.’
