Maycomb Times

Killing in Maycomb

A rabie infected dog, Tim Johnson, appears on the Finch's street. However it was afar. Calpurnia confirms that the dog is very sick. Heck Tate, Maycombs sheriff says, only Atticus is good enough to hit the dog from such a distance. Atticus aims, pulls the trigger and BANG the dog goes down with one shot.

Scout and Jem are amazed to learn that when Atticus, their father, was the best shot in the county, he was even nicknamed one-shot finch as a youngin. Scout and Jem can't seem to figure out why Atticus doesn't use his amazing talent for hunting like other men in Maycomb.
