Adolphus is a wealthy man. His wife shot herself on their wedding rehersal, some say she found out that he had an affair
with a black woman. He doesn't care about race very much. He has a relationship with a black woman and has "mixed" children.
He puts a coke can in a paper bag which the town suspects is alcohol. He lets them believe that it's alcohol and acts drunk
because he says it gives the town a reason to understand the way he is. The town couldn't accept race mixing and mixed
children, so he needed to give them a reason. He honestly is not much of a drinker and coca-cola really is in the bottle.
When Dill is upset about the trial, Scout takes him outside. Dill explains how he feels about how the town is racist
and Adolphus hears. He gives Dill a sip of the coca-cola to settle him and Dill expresses his thanks. That's when they find
out that there is no alcohol in the bottle.
