James Byrd, 30-year-old turpentine worker, discusses "Joe Mows," good luck items (also known as "Mojos") usually including a lodestone which, kept in one's pocket, are said to be helpful in winning at gambling games. He says that good Joe Mows must be ordered from Louisiana or Mississippi. Some are made by workers at the turpentine camp, and sold for $2 each, but he doesn't believe in that kind.
