I'm Father Time! And I demand that you let me go!
Figuring out time really is frozen
Could you let me go now?
The old man explained that he was Father Time. When Jim captured him, all time everywhere stopped. Nothing would move, and everyone would be frozen, except for him, Jim and the butcher's horse, until Father Time was set free again. But Jim had no intention of freeing Father Time.
Giving the beggar his fair share
Jim decided to take the Father Time back to the city. On his way, he saw a horse and a buggy in the middle of the road, completely frozen. It scared Jim a little, so he decided to move on.
Switching Miss Scrapple's and Officer Mulligan's clothes
Jim soon found himself in the city. Again, everyone and everything was frozen. It was so eerie and quiet, that this so-called city seemed more like a ghost town.
Jim forgot to put the butcher's horse in Playton's Pastures
"What're ye doin' hear, ye rascal? Didn't ye promise to put that beast inter Plympton's pasture? An' now I find ye ridin' the poor nag around like a gentleman o' leisure!
The Butcher Shop
He soon saw a wealthy looking man who was going to drop a penny into a beggar's hat. Jim walked over to the man, took out his purse and exchanged the penny for a $20 gold piece. Feeling rather happy with himself, Jim moved on.
Then a spirit of mischief came into the boy's head, for he decided that time would probably never freeze again, and he wanted to have a little fun with that current opportunity. Jim decided to tie Father Time to a pole so he wouldn't escape while Jim looked around in the frozen city. Jim saw Officer Mulligan talking with Miss Scrapple, the worst gossip in town. He decided to put the officer's hat and coat on Miss Scrapple, and he put Miss Scrapple's hat on the officer. Jim thought it would be very funny when time went back to normal.
Jim decided to finally let Father Time go, and people were laughing at what Jim had created on the street. Jim walked by the Butcher, and suddenly remembered he was supposed to take his horse to Playton's Pastures.
That's a fact. I clean forgot about the horse!
