Note 1: revenue man, probably: government officials commissioned to seek out and destroy illegal
liquor distilleries during the times of the Prohibition. Also, possibly, the man who collects the
rent, taxes (the taxman) or some other payments that are due.
Note 2: purrty, according to the Webster dictionary, a low vibratory murmur typical of an apparently
contented or pleased cat, in this case it's suppose to express that the sheriff wasn't in a friendly
mood;
Note 3: saltwater, an old synonym for alcohol
