Jesse James was a Piker, 1959



Advertisement for a regular The Farmer feature known as “The Watchdog.” Full text available here. The use of the word “piker” doesn’t follow most definitions I can find: it usually means ‘miserly’ or a ‘hobo’, but the article uses it in a “thieving” context. If you do happen to be in the Northfield area, Jesse James Days are going on this weekend, and you can find out just how big a piker he was, first-hand.
