mister dumas says riels better because

when father moulin comes he drinks and he sings and
sometimes he dances at weddings but when mister riel
comes he sets a plate at the table for jesus and
he prays for the people and prays up the stairs and he is
praying and praying and praying all the time
father moulin is drinking and drinking and drinking
and mister dumas says riels better because but
old man batoche says its cheaper
