In the begging we find out that the lottery would normally take 2 days but they don't have many people so it takes about 2 hours. The boys also set up rocks in a pile for later
Then we discover that this black box has been used for many traditions , and Mr.Summers wants to get a new box but no one agrees.
Then they had attendance I we figured out that Clyde Dunbar broke his leg so Mrs.Dunbar had to do it but Mr.Summers had suggested a grown boy do it for her but she wanted to do it.
Mr.Summers starts to call out names to come out and pick a card from the black box.Once every man from the family has a card they can open them had who ever has the dot on their slip of paper is nominated.Bill Hutchinson go the dot and now everyone from his family has to draw a slip of paper.Then they all opened their papers.
Tessie was the one with the dot on her slip of paper, so then all the kids had gotten rocks and Tessie had gotten a stone thrown to her head.
As Mrs.Huchtinson was saying "It isn't fair ,it isn't right'" and she was screaming and then they were upon her.
