In , Sylvester began to build his dream castle. He hired local architect John Walker Smart, who had designed several buildings in town, including ones for the post office, hospital and newspaper. From its many windows and balconies, Dupuy could look out at his birthplace and the lush land that had made him rich.
He imported wood paneling from Central America, replete with tiny beetles. A trap door, hidden by a rug under the table in the circular breakfast nook, led to a wine cellar. In , the year the family moved into the castle, Sylvester Dupuy began developing property on Valley Boulevard, down the hill from his estate. He set up his sons in the tire business at Y Tire Sales, which the family still owns. He bailed out of ranching in the late s, switching to a more profitable crop: subdivisions.
Sylvester Dupuy died of a stroke in , at Family and extended family soon moved out of the castle, leaving Anna Dupuy alone at The Hill with an elderly friend.

Because his grandfather had paid cash for the construction, he said, when the Depression hit, the family became land-rich but cash-poor. The new owner divided the home into eight apartments, one of which Anna Dupuy occupied until her death in The castle changed hands several times and then sat abandoned and vandalized. Jem bursts through the hole in the fence, just as Mr. Radley appears with his shotgun on the street, telling Atticus and Aunt Stephanie that he "shot at a prowler out in his collard patch.
With summer ending and Dill returning to his home, school begins. Tomboy Scout must give up her overalls for a dress.
She awkwardly pokes and tugs at it on her first day of school: "I still don't see why I have to wear a darn old dress. She rubs his nose in the dirt. Scout explains to Jem, as he restrains her with all his might, why she took out her frustration at the teacher on the poor boy:. He made me start off on the wrong foot.

I was trying to explain to that darn lady teacher why he didn't have no money for his lunch, and she got sore at me. Jem promises that his "crazy" sister won't fight with him any more and then invites young Walter over to the Finch household for a dinner of roast beef corn bread, turnips and rice rather than his usual fare of "squirrels and rabbits. I remember when my daddy gave me that gun.
He told me that I should never point it at anything in the house. And that he'd rather I'd shoot at tin cans in the backyard, but he said that sooner or later he supposed the temptation to go after birds would be too much, and that I could shoot all the blue jays I wanted, if I could hit 'em, but to remember it was a sin to kill a mockingbird Well, I reckon because mockingbirds don't do anything but make music for us to enjoy.
They don't eat people's gardens, don't nest in the corncribs, they don't do one thing but just sing their hearts out for us. Scout watches Walter as he liberally pours thick syrup all over his meal. Appalled and disgusted, she hurts his feelings: "He's gone and drown-ded his dinner in syrup and then he's pourin' it all over. That boy is your company. And if he wants to eat up that tablecloth, you let him, you hear?
And if you can't act fit to eat like folks, you can just set here and eat in the kitchen. Scout is sent back to the table with a smack on her rear. With a caring understanding of the mysteries of childhood, Atticus finds Scout on the slatted porch swing hanging on a rusty chain and sits next to her. He listens to her share her feelings about the crisis on her first day of school, and her criticisms of her teacher. Without talking down to her, he eloquently, simply, and tenderly presents her with an invaluable lesson on how to accept the differences between one human being and another:.
If you just learn a single trick, Scout, you'll get along a lot better with all kinds of folks. You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.
With paternal wisdom, he also tells her about the meaning and value of compromising:. Atticus: Do you know what a compromise is? Scout: Bendin' the law? Atticus: Uh, no. It's an agreement reached by mutual consent. Now, here's the way it works. You concede the necessity of goin' to school, we'll keep right on readin' the same every night, just as we always have.
Is that a bargain? As the scene continues, the adult Jean-Louise - in voice-over - praises her father:. There just didn't seem to be anyone or anything Atticus couldn't explain. Though it wasn't a talent that would arouse the admiration of any of our friends, Jem and I had to admit he was very good at that, but that was all he was good at, we thought. In the next memorable sequence, Atticus proves his Lincoln-esque stature to his children.
Although Scout is disbelieving and yells out "He can't shoot" when Sheriff Heck Tate Frank Overton hands his rifle to her father, Atticus takes aim with a rifle at a rabid dog moving erratically down the street outside their home. He raises up his glasses a few times on his forehead to see better, and then removes them altogether by dropping them on the street.
Jem and Scout are both dumbfounded and stunned when the rifle cracks and the dog flops over dead. The Sheriff tells Jem about the hidden abilities of his modest father who hasn't shot a gun in twenty years: "Didn't you know your daddy's the best shot in this county? That night, Jem and Scout join their father as he rides into the country to compassionately talk to his client's family - twenty-nine year-old Helen Robinson Kim Hamilton , the wife of the man he is defending. While Atticus is in the Robinson house, an unshaven and drunken Bob Ewell staggers toward the car, holds onto it to steady himself, and stares at the two children.
Atticus appears and after they face off, Ewell hatefully snarls at him: "You nigger lover. He's all bluff. When they return home, Atticus adds: "There's a lot of ugly things in this world, son. I wish I could keep 'em all away from you. That's never possible. While Atticus drives Calpurnia home, Jem sits on the porch in the rocking chair. He is spooked and terrorized by rustling trees, moving shadows, and the calls of a nightbird. He starts to run toward the Radley place in the direction of his father's car, calling out: "Atticus, Atticus. He sticks his hand in, takes the object out, notices it is a shiny medal, and quickly pockets it before running home.
