: : : "Hark," cries Sassy Soothsayer! "What is that commotion out by Miss Marcia's corncrib?"
: : ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
: : Sheriff Twigg and Major Effingham, sir, I been thinkin' that Miss Marcia's been real consarned about the smell o' polecat commin' from this corncrib, but she doesn't seem to know that there's all this set-up in here. Would ye be amenable to goin' in the house and askin' her if she has any explanation for all this?
: : Say! There's The Sassy Soothsayer a-swoopin' over the chimney and lookin' for Miss Marcia! Sassy's a good one for figurin' out puzzles like this - she's got that Extry Sense Or Tea Perception, ye know, which means iffen ye can't figur' somethin' out right away, a good hot cup o' English tea will clear yer mind for ye and get ye to the answer DI-reckly. Just the person we need to consult on this here issue. LIGHT A MINUTE, SASSY! WE NEED TO TALK TO YE!

: Yeeeeee-eeeeessssss, She Who Tracks?? It is I, Sassy Soothsayer, here...you needed my services??

Well, hel-LO there Sassy! It's fair to say we like seein' yer cheerful face as much as we like appealin' to yer uncanny knowin' o' things that other folks seem to let get by 'em. Just light down off yer flyin' carpet for a minute, and let me introduce ye to Major Effingham o' the Royal Americans. Major, this is The Sassy Soothsayer, who I think I heerd ye say ye saw briefly in JFC's Fast Foods last night, but who I believe ye haven't come to know for her finer qualities as yet. She takes a bit o' gettin' used to, but once ye come to accept that she has a little different way o' movin' about the colony and a little different way o' lookin' at things than most folks, ye'll love her sartain, yes ye will.
Now, Sassy, ye come by at a particklar important time, and I wish ye'd take a minute to look at some o' the things we found here in Miss Marcia's corncrib and tell us if ye can make any sense of 'em.
There's this straw pallet and blanket, and these cannisters o' skunk oil, and this knife handle carved with a couple o' letters, and Major Effingham is especially curious to know who they might belong to and what they're doin' here.
