Excerpt from Tales of the Jazz Age Online Book (From "The Jelly-Bean")
Jim Powell was a Jelly–bean. Much as I desire to make him an appealing character, I feel that it would be unscrupulous to deceive you on that point. He was a bred–in–the–bone, dyed–in–the–wool, ninety–nine three–quarters per cent Jelly–bean and he grew lazily all during Jelly–bean season, which is every season, down in the land of the Jelly–beans well below the Mason–Dixon line.
Now if you call a Memphis man a Jelly–bean he will quite possibly pull a long sinewy rope from his hip pocket and hang you to a convenient telegraph–pole.
