“You’re shamin’ him, Miss Caroline. Walter hasn’t got a quarter at home to bring you, and you can’t use any stovewood.”
– Harper Lee
To Kill a Mockingbird, Chapter 2. Scout gives a verbal caning to teacher Miss Caroline, after she fails to get her to understand why a proud son of Walter Cunningham, Walter Jr., won’t accept her offer of money for lunch. The stovewood mentioned is what the poor farm family uses to pay for things instead of money.
