African Americans spoken Ethnography Music Narratives Interviews Beliefs and superstitions Office of the Aycock & Lindsey Turpentine Camp Cross City, Florida Dixie County

The performer, identified only as "Jack," believes that spirits return after death, and contends that Joe Mows cannot help against spirits. He reports that some turpentine workers make Joe Mows (good luck items, also known as "Mojos," said to be helpful in winning at gambling games) by sewing up a corn cob in a piece of red flannel and carrying it around the waist, neck, or in the right hand pocket. Frog and salt can be used to "kill" someone else's Joe Mow.
